    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 97


    Welcome to the 97th game in the 6OTM Series! These games will allow new and old GOTM fans to try out the new features in Civ6 in a friendly environment. Participants are encouraged to post questions, stories, advice, tricks and failures in the dedicated game threads (described below). Each game will specify the Civ you will play and the Victory Condition to strive for. We will be working to refine the 6otM concept as we move ahead with the series. Gifting of cities is an exploit in a religious VC as the AI cant see that it will lose if it accepts the cities.

    Spoiler :
    Announcement thread (this one): This thread is used to announce the game and clarify the settings and rules (don't be afraid to ask questions). It's also used to discuss the game before you start, and post problems with opening the save. Once you have opened the save, DO NOT POST in the Announcement thread, even non game-related information. Instead use the next thread.

Here you can post questions related to the game and share your achievements/anger/frustration/victories while you play. We encourage players to use the spoiler tags for screenshot.

    After Actions thread: In this thread you can post the results of your game. Please state your victory/loss date and final score (preferably in the post title) and describe your path to glory in this post! Players are encouraged to provide feedback on the game. Some players like to replay the game, and although we will not record the results from a replay, you can still post your new experiences. The game will not be closed as such, but after one month, the results will be compiled, and will not necessarily be updated with reports coming in after the finish date.

    For those new to Dramatic Ages a couple items to consider:
    Spoiler Dramatic Ages Info :

    When you open the game, in the Civilopedia (? in upper right), the top entry is modes, then a description of Dramatic Ages. Worth the read if you haven't. Anything that is not accurate below is my fault for not reading, writing, or testing properly.

    Key points to consider:
    Only Dark or Golden Ages after first era :cool:
    No Dedications (like standard mode), but more powerful Policies that can be placed in Wildcard slots.

    Earning Era score:
    Historic Moments (same as standard mode)
    +1 for each Tech/Civic discovered
    +1 for each unit promotion to 2d level or higher
    Note: Era score is at end of the turn, so any era score you earn on the turn you transition from one era to the next era is credited to the new era.

    Era Score required for Golden age:
    This may not be fully accurate, but testing I did indicates below worked for an ancient era start on standard speed:
    Ancient Era -> Classic Era, always 25
    If E = Era you are currently entering beyond Classic Era; C = # cities, not including capital; A = +5 for now entering Golden Age, -10 for now entering Dark Age, then:
    Era Score needed for next age = Era score as entering age + 25 + 5E + 3C + A.
    So, if you meet the Classic Era golden score requirement of 25 by getting 30 era score at the end of the ancient age and have 4 cities, not including your capital, to achieve a golden age as you enter the Medieval Era you would need:
    30 + 25 + 5*0 + 3*4 + 5 = 72 era score entering Medieval Era (a 42 point increase from your current 30; whether you had 25 or 30 or 100, it will still be a 42 point increase). Later eras and more cities keep seeing this requirement get bigger and bigger and bigger.

    City loses during a Dark age:
    In dramatic ages, you automatically have cities turn into free cities at the beginning of a Dark Age. Note: Free cities have their own influence and enough of them combined can flip other cities :crazyeye:; higher difficulty level, higher influence.
    At Immortal level, human players lose 35% of their cities!! :eek: AI only at 10% at Immortal level. Of note, your capitol is always safe and you always lose at least one, but otherwise it is rounded down. :thumbsup:
    So, if you enter a Dark Age by choice or not, you will lose the following number of cities:
    If have 1 (capitol only), lose 0. If have 2-5, lose 1. If have 6-8, lose 2. If have 9-11, lose 3. If have 12-14, lose 4. If have 15-17, lose 5. If have 18-19, lose 6. Etc.
    [Note: At this level, if you are 2 turns away from entering the next era and will be getting a dark age while currently having 5 cities, you may want to consider waiting those 2 turns before building your next city.]

    FYI that can only be Matterhorn to the South, which will be ridiculously strong on Highlands map.

    If you do so, do you get the olives right away or do you have to wait until Irrigation (or do you actually lose them)?

    Why did they tweak Monumentality to only give a gold discount to Builders and not Settlers? Perhaps a mistake? Has anyone tested?

    Monumentality as a card (dramatic ages) now grants +2 movement to Settlers instead of the purchase discount.
