In a TG (that isn't on water based maps) imo it is better for Vik to sling. Best civ for slinging.
But u depend on ally (or allies) to end game fast + keep u alive.
That's a fair call, the Viks would be pretty good for slinging, didn't think of that. I don't usually play with the intention of slinging, so it didn't occur to me that there were civs best at it
Either way, I'm not going to be picking Viks anytime soon, but it's been good having an actual on topic discussion
