COTM91 - Final Spoiler
COTM 91 Final Spoiler; Scandinavia, Game Submitted
You may only read this thread if:
This map would seem somewhat suited to using the Berzerk; do you have some good raiding stories to share? And, any other final comments on your submitted game; how did it go and did any of the AI provide you a challenge?
Computer science is an oxymoron

20k victory in 1778AD
Military conquests didn't go too well for me. Never got very big, so things were slow all the way around.
250 Statue of Zeus (settled a city near the Aztecs to get ivory)
70 Hanging gardens
1030 Leo's workshop
1330 Heroic Epic
1430 JSC Bach

Predator Domination Challenge
In the Middle Ages, I had three Technologies still to discover:
470 BC Discover FeudalismI was soon ready to start a two-front war against Zululand and the
Netherlands using Horsemen and some Archers, which were later upgraded
to Berserks. France joined the fray and gave us War Happiness. I used
the first Military Great Leader to build a Forbidden Palace on the
island. The second one formed an Army which was later filled with
Berserks on the Mongols' island, from which it couldn't escape.
570 BC Massive UprisingsWhen England built The Great Lighthouse in London, I knew what I must
do. I outfitted several Galleys with Berserks and they went straight
to London, where they started our Golden Age as well as improved the
speediness of our fine vessels. At the same time other Berserks
started hacking away at the Mongols. I used the Golden Age to
short-rush Berserks on the island, wheras the overseas cities were
building Horsemen and Settlers. At 75 shields apiece, I could use the
Granary to short-rush Berserks in cities running 15 shields per
turn. The capital had an active Granary and built two-turn Horsemen.
270 AD Capture London with The Great LighthouseA similar fate was bestowed upon the Inca. I established an Embassy
four turns before they were to finish the Temple of Artemis. I really
only wanted to find out how well defended The Great Wall was.
The Berserks had to wait a little in their boats and then made sure
that my focus was directed towards this northern landmass for the rest
of the game. I let the Aztecs alone, since they were well-developed,
far away and had built the Statue of Zeus long ago. Instead, I sent
the troops, mainly Horsemen, from Mongolia on to America. Some
Berserks from France also sailed over there to assist from the
460 AD War Inca. Cuzco builds The Temple of Artemis.I got some more Military Great Leaders who formed two Armies and
rushed Heroic Epic in Miami on the south tip of America, where I
figured cultural expansion would bring many tiles. The last Army was
formed on the turn before Domination and was never used.
Domination in 630 AD. Except for the Aztecs, there was very little
left of the AI.

Conquest in 1060AD
Those Berserks were fun, wish I had not bothered researching GP and Chemistry, took monotheism in trade then chivalry for a few land actions.
