    Hello!


    If you didn't catch the first competition, here is the second!

    More fun, more surprises, more interesting developments?

    Well, it's up to you to figure out - and me to reveal the coming weekend...

    [this game has (just like last time) already been played. I know the results, but no hints or comments before after the deadline...]


    PICK THE WINNING LEADER - 2nd Game!



    Winners of the 2nd AI Auto Play: Gwynnja & lymond - :trophy::clap::goodjob:

    Both of whom picked Charlemagne as the winning leader of this game!​


    Spoiler Honourable mentions: :

    Ironlungs76 got the correct 1st GP - a Celtic Great General.
    He missed by a mere 300 years as his 2000 BC bet turned out to be
    a 1700 BC Vercingetorix born in Gergovia!

    MegaLurker, FlyingSwan and elitetroops all got the victory condition right (Domination), but missed with the leader winning.

    nate45 got three correct eliminated leaders (Stalin, Julius Caesar & Tokugawa) out of the four he suggested. Had he dropped Shaka and included Boudica & Victoria he would've gotten a five-out-of-five...

    Stricl3r came closest to the victory-date with his AD 1750 bet. Only missed by 12 years as Charlemagne won Domination at AD 1762.


    In the end, I was happy that all those suggesting multiple leaders as winners in their posts got it all wrong. In the future I will set a rule that only ONE leader can be bet on by each participant. Increasing the mathematical probability of a win from 1/13 to 2/13 feels to me like crossing the borders between cheating and not-cheating... I haven't had a rule like this for the first two competitions, but I will implement it for the third...




    Spoiler THE COMPETITION :

    A
    Name the winning leader!
    (and if you like to really impress: The winning date and victory condition)

    B
    Name the useless!
    (those who gets eliminated - if any (I won't tell just yet!))

    C
    Who gets the first (1st) Great Person!

    Hello.

    Here is the game-report.

    Spoiler AI Auto Play 2 - Game Report :


    Part One - The Years of Innocence

    Spoiler Part One :
    Peace ruled throughout the world. Leaders of small tribes settled small cities and started to explore the countryside beyond their known lands.

    At 3650 BC Pacal II founded Hinduism in Lakamha. 3450 BC Julius Caesar founded Buddhism at Antium. Both converted the following turn. On the mainland Buddhism spread to cover most of the continent. However, Pacal II didn't spread Hinduism to his neighbour, Gilgamesh. This was a mistake!? At 2625 BC Pacal II founded Judaism at Chichen Itza. This religion he spread to Sumeria, and in 2425 BC Gilgamesh adopted it.

    650 years after his neighbour had founded Buddhism, Stalin adopted it as his state religion as well.

    Stalin was the first to adopt Slavery (3225 BC), followed by Victoria (3075 BC), Gilgamesh (3050 BC), Bismarck (3025 BC), Charlemagne (2950 BC), Darius (2825 BC), Boudica (2725 BC) and Willem van Oranje (2500 BC). Pacal II adopted Organized Religion in 2600 BC.

    Shaka finished the construction of Stonehenge at Ulundi in 2825 BC. 2675 BC Stalin revealed The Great Wall of Moscow.

    All these things happened in a time of innocence. And then war was invented!



    Part Two - The Years of War (2350 BC to AD 10)

    Spoiler Part Two :
    2350 BC Stalin made the decision to declare war on Darius I. During the war he only managed to raze Ecbatana! Peace was agreed at 700 BC, after 1 650 years of war.

    Spoiler At the Gates of Ecbatana :

    " align="" border="0" />


    Boudica heard the rumours of war, and decided to make one herself. 2300 BC she declared on Willem van Oranje. At 2275 BC Julius Caesar declared on Boudica. Neither side did any harm to the other until hostilities ceased 1725 BC. 2250 BC Rotterdam was razed by the Celtic Empire after a mere 300 years of existence since its founding 2550 BC.

    Spoiler Former city-site of Rotterdam :

    " align="" border="0" />


    In 2050 BC the Celts reached The Hague, and captured the city. However, only a lone 3.1/5.0 strength Axeman had survived. A costly victory for the Celts! Also note that Willem van Oranje had re-built at the city where once Rotterdam had flourished. Now named Maastricht!

    Willem van Oranje himself didn't have the military force to re-take The Hague right away. It wasn't before 1500 BC (!) he managed to re-take the city from Celtia. 1450 BC he made peace with the Celts, with neither side profiting from the war. He lost, and re-captured, The Hague; lost Rotterdam, and re-built Maastricht in its place. This war was a set-back for both civilizations.

    On the small continent Pacal II had managed to found both Hinduism and Judaism. He adopted the former, and spread the latter to Gilgamesh. The Sumerians adapted Judaism 2425 BC, and declared on the hindu Mayan Empire at 2125 BC. 2050 BC Gilgamesh captured Mayapan. Six-city Sumeria vs five-city Maya (and with room to expand into the west, while Mayans are looking for war or ocean-travel. (pic below)

    Spoiler After the fall of Mayapan :

    Willem van Oranje: 4 cities, war with Boudica.
    Boudica: 6 cities, wars with Willem van Oranje & Julius Caesar.
    Victoris: 9 cities, no wars
    Bismarck: 5 cities, no wars
    Hammurabi: 5 cities, no wars
    Shaka: 5 cities, no wars
    Tokugawa: 5 cities, no wars
    Charlemagne: 8 cities, no wars
    Julius Caesar: 5 cities, war with Boudica
    Stalin: 4 cities, war with Darius I
    Darius I: 4 cities, war with Stalin
    Gilgamesh: 6 cities, war with Pacal II
    Pacal II: 5 cities, war with Gilgamesh


    From 2000 BC to the end of the BC's nine more wars were declared. Here is the short summary of those:

    925 BC: Boudica declares on Darius I - Peace at 455 BC.
    Boudica captures Gordium at 575 BC.

    925 BC: Bismarck declares on Boudica - Peace at 485 BC.
    Uneventful.

    900 BC: Tokugawa declares on Bismarck - ongoing at AD 10
    Uneventful.

    500 BC: Victoria declares on Boudica - ongoing at AD 10
    Victoria captures: Gordium (470 BC) and Gergovia (200 BC)

    500 BC: Charlemagne declares on Boudica - ongoing at AD 10
    Charlemagne captures: Camulodunum (35 BC).

    485 BC: Julius Caesar delcares on Tokugawa - ongoing at AD 10
    Julius Caesar razed: Osaka (455 BC)

    470 BC: Shaka declares on Tokugawa - Peace at 185 BC
    Uneventful.

    155 BC: Hammurabi declares on Tokugawa - ongoing at AD 10
    Uneventful.

    125 BC: Gilgamesh declares on Pacal II - ongoing at AD 10
    Pacal II re-captured Mayapan at 65 BC (!) only to see Gilgamesh take it back at 35 BC (!!).
    Then nothing more happened before the BC's ran out.


    Despite the wars that plagued the world, people continued to excel in what they were doing. Making their civilizations thrive and flourish throughout the rest of the BC's.

    Stalin impresses his people with The Pyramids of Moscow at 1925 BC. Twenty-five years later he becomes the first leader to adopt Representation. Bismarck finishes The Great Lighthouse in Berlin, 1850 BC. Then Gilgamesh builds The Oracle at Uruk in 1825 BC.

    Due to the early wars fought by the Celts, Vercingetorix is the first Great General to be born. That happened in 1700 BC at Gergovia. Socrates becomes the first Great Scientist as he is born in Antium (Julius Caesar) in 1625 BC.

    The Colossus is revealed in Babylon's Eridu in 1275 BC. Twenty-five years later Boudica completes The Temple of Artemis in Bibracte. In 1000 BC Gilgamesh completes The Hanging Gardens of Uruk.

    The last millennium before the AD's also saw a world in change. Victoria founded Confucianism in 925 BC (York) and Christianity in 800 BC (Warwick). Julius Caesar completed Mausoleum of Maussollos in 575 BC (Rome).

    The Statue of Zeus appeared in London 550 BC, The Great Library in Berlin 485 BC, Shwedagon Paya in Canterbury 380 BC and The Parthenon in Berlin 335 BC. Then Taoism was founded by Julius Caesar in Antium 275 BC. Antium. This made Antium a double holy city (Buddhism and Taoism). The only one of its kind!

    Chichen Itza was built in Moscow 260 BC. The Apostolic Palace was built in Berlin by Bismarck, and ruled the Buddhist world from 140 BC.

    ...and then the BC's ended...

    In the AD's civilizations started to dwindle into nothingness, soon to be destroyed as their cities were captured by more capable leaders than their own.

    AD 430 - Charlemagne captures Kagoshima, and the Japanese Empire is no more...
    AD 565 - The Celtic Empire comes to a stop, 360 years after the demise of their last city (Tolosa was captured by Victoria at AD 205), as an English Caravel destroys the last remaining knowledge of Celtic culture carried forward by Boudica's Work Boat outside Tolosa!

    The most important event happened in AD 1100. Then Charlemagne, Willem van Oranje and Shaka all declared war on Victoria. By the time England made peace with Holy Rome (AD 1295), Victoria had lost her sanity (and the game).

    Spoiler AD 1110 - England at its Peak :

    " align="" border="0" />


    In just 210 years (AD 1100 - 1310) England lost fourteen (14) cities. Being attacked on both the western and eastern flank at the same time was the doom of the (growing) English supremacy on the planet. England was reduced from Nineteen (19) cities (AD 1100) to a mere five (5) cities (AD 1310). Holy Rome captured seven (7), Netherlands five (5), Zululand razed Dover (1) and in exchange for peace with Holy Rome (AD 1295) England had to give away Oxford (1) to Charlemagne. A loss of fourteen cities in a timespan of just two hundred and ten years!

    Spoiler AD 1320 - The Remains of the English Empire :

    " align="" border="0" />


    The new world dominating force that emerged after the fall of England was Holy Rome. Eighteen cities in the main continent, as well as three on the big island of the South (shared with Julius Caesar... for now) made for a total of twentyone (21) cities. Despite having had success themselves, Netherlands were still not able to grab more land on the main continent adjacent to their starting position. Ten cities plus Middelburg (island NE) made for eleven (11) cities total.

    Spoiler AD 1320 - Holy Rome Emerges :

    " align="" border="0" />


    With a blood-thirsty Charlemagne attacking "everything that sticks its head out," Willem had "lost" the war with Victoria despite a highly successful campaign to conquer five cities. Now the world was in the hands of a mad-man for sure...


    ...in other news...
    Hammurabi completes The Hagia Sophia of Babylon in 40, the same year as Rome grabbed University of Sankore (of Rome?). In 55 Stalin finished Notre Dame in Moscow. 145 was the year Julius Caesar completed The Sistine Chapel of Rome. Then, in 205, Islam was the last religion to be founded, in Opis by Hammurabi. Julius Caesar decided to build the Angkor Wat in Ravenna, and in 205 it stood finished.

    Atisha was a Great Prophet born in Cumae, 235. In 250 he helped complete The Mahabodhi in Antium. In Babylon Hammurabi saw the completion of The Spiral Minaret in 385.

    As mentioned before, Japan ceased to exist in 430. The first civilization to perish. The first Golden Age appeared in Russia in 505, after Stalin had completed The Taj Mahal of Moscow that year. In Rome, St. John was born in 535. In 550 he completed The Dai Miao of Antium, making the city a coveted double-shrined cash-machine under the control of Julius Caesar. Just sixteen years later, in 565, Julius Caesar proved that the world is indeed round. This was the same year as the last remaining Celtic Work Boat were sunk by an English Caravel, to bury the memory of Celtia forever and ever...

    Abu Bakr, born in Lakamha in 700, helped the construction of The Kashi Vishwanath, also in Lakamha, in 715 to give Pacal II his holy shrine. In the same year Victoria began her Golden Age (this was before the triple DoW at her in 1100). Julius Caesar completed Versailles at Antium in 850. Ten years later, in 860, Charlemagne got to experience a Holy Roman Golden Age.

    The first millennium ended with Hammurabi being the first to discover Liberalism.

    The first major event in the second millennium was when Kobo-Daishi (b 1190, Babylon) in 1210 completed The Masjid al-Haram in Opis to give Hammurabi his shrine-city.

    1380 was a year to mark as it was the foundation-year of the very first corporation to be established. Julius Caesar incorporated Creative Constructions in Cumae. Also in 1380, Willem van Oranje completed The Statue of Liberty in Amsterdam. In 1430 Hammurabi entered a Golden Age. Broadway was completed by Willem in Amsterdam, 1470.

    Willem van Oranje: 11 cities, war with Victoria
    Darius I: 7 cities, no wars
    Stalin: 7 cities, wars with Hammurabi & Charlemagne.
    Charlemagne: 27 cities, wars with Julius Caesar, Stalin & Victoria.
    Victoria: 4 cities, wars with Willem van Oranje, Charlemagne & Bismarck.
    Bismarck: 7 cities, war with victoria.
    Hammurabi: 13 cities, wars with Stalin & Gilgamesh.
    Shaka: 6 cities, no wars.
    Julius Caesar: 7 cities, war with Charlemagne.
    Gilgamesh: 8 cities, wars with Hammurabi & Pacal II.
    Pacal II: 4 cities, war with Gilgamesh.


    The 16th century began with Charlemagne incorporating Mining Inc. in Aachen AD 1505. Bismarck built The Pentagon in Munich (AD 1510). Charlemagne continued his wars against England and Russia, capturing cities from them both.

    Bismarck kickstarted the 17th century by being the first to complete the Apollo Program in AD 1605. Amsterdam got a taste for Rock 'N Roll at AD 1610, and Willem's people could rock around the clock (forgetting about world affairs, for the time being). The dutch culture didn't wait long to make its impact. AD 1620 saw Newcastle revolt against Holy Rome and join the Netherlands. My guess is Charlemagne was too busy completing Cristo Redentor (AD 1625) in Aachen to care much about a fringe-city like Newcastle(?).

    AD 1645 saw Holy Rome complete their Apollo Program. In 1655 Numidian was the last Russian city that fell for Charlemagnes forces, and the Russian Civilization was destroyed with the city. In the very same year Bismarck captured York to complete the annihilation of England. Victoria fell from dominating the world at 1100 to nothingness five hundred and fifty-five years later! The Babylonian city of Eshnunna became the HQ of The United Nations in 1660.

    Willem van Oranje becomes the third leader to complete the Apollo Program in 1690. In the same year Charlemagne constructs SS Docking Bay. The 17th century ends with Holy Rome building Hollywood in Augsburg (1695) and Bismarck being the first to adopt Universal Suffrage (1700).

    The 18th century opens with Holy Rome constructing five SS Casings (one in 1702, four in 1704). In 1714 Charlemagne completes The Three Gorges Dam in the former Roman capitol of Rome. In 1716 Willem completes his SS Docking Bay. Bismarck gets his SS Docking Bay in 1722. SS Life Support built by Holy Rome in 1724. In 1728 Hammurabi completes Apollo Program.

    Umma is the last city founded in the game. The year is 1730, and the leader Gilgamesh. During the 1700s Charlemagne's war-machine gets really going. Holy Rome expands like crazy. There is no doubt that he goes for Domination before any other (lesser?) civilization can come up with a Culture-win. Holy Rome leads the Space-race, and the mere size of Charlemagne's empire means he would win a Diplomatic victory (or at least block anyone else from winning that way).

    In 1752 Charlemagne completes his SS Cockpit. Warwick, then under Dutch control, becomes the last city captured in the game as Charlemagne rolls through the streets in 1760. This year also sees the beginning of a Holy Roman Golden Age, and Charlemagne completes the Manhattan Project!

    AD 1762 - Charlemagne has won a Domination Victory!

    My bet is on either Pacal winning the space race, or Shaka winning via domination.

    That said, could you perhaps give us a play by play of the wars and AI alliances that formed like Sulla's tournament did? It is supremely entertaining to learn how the AI's got to their end game positions.

    that shaka start with no commerce tile...it's gonna take him long to get to construction, I think shaka might end up getting vassal'd

    I really like Darius's start, so many gold sources, he can easily take all of them and get ahead in tech.

    Pacal is in a precarious position, but good chance he and Gilgs could be friends if Gilgs doesn't get a bug on early. Pacal could win culture in that case.

    My money is on the IMP leaders, specifically JC and Charlie. I lean towards Charlie winning this thing. Vicky is IMP too, but she is generally very weak on the war front, so I don't give here much chance.

    Stalin usually performs quite poorly IMO.

    I'm guessing Charlie. Imp/Pro sucks for human players but excels for the AI. Charlie will spam cities and be able to protect them with pro. By the time Shaka gets done beating his head against Hammy's bowguys Charlie will have 15 cities. Plus, I think Charlie's got a pretty high unit build algorithm too, 30-35.

    shaka will take hammurabi but fails. Stalemate happens until later stages

    charly and pacal might found a religion. hopefully so with bodica

    stalin might attack darius but only take one or two of his cities.

    the winner should be pacal for culture around 1800 to 1900, if not victoria wins space at 1950 onwards
    the first great person comes from pacal

    hammurabi, wilhelm and bismarck gets marginal land near the end or at risk of being eliminated

    julius might lose the early rex but able to expand overseas

    I'd like to change my bet on Pacal culture, looking at it twice this should have the highest odds. I also think that giggles will become friendly with him more often than he will crush him.

    Let's say it happens as early as 1750.

    If JC had Fe around him or BFC, he'd be my pick, but he doesn't. :sad: So I'll roll with Pacal culture win, building most of the marble/stone wonders with the resources so close.

    Since no Fe for JC, JC will get himself into trouble and be eliminated. Hammy eliminated by shaka, WvO eliminated by Boudica.

    Pacal science seems like a possibility, although he has very limited expansion room and that can hurt output. He won't have any distractions though except for Gilgamesh, unlike the free-for-all melee Charles, Victoria and Caesar will experience.

    I second someone's guess that the first GP will be a Mayan Prophet.

    Pacal and Gilgamesh will get their favourite civic diplo bonus with each other when they reach Monarchy. If Pacal founds one of the early religions then they'll certainly end up at friendly. So the first question is do they get to Friendly before Gilgamesh declares? He plots at pleased. I suppose there's a good chance they end up friends. Then the second question is do they have the land, divided between them, for Pacal to win before a runaway on the main continent does? I'm betting he doesn't.

    Gilgamesh should get well over half the land on the smaller continent, and some of what Pacal gets will be tundra. Culture victories tend to be slow even on Deity and I think a runaway hitting the Domination limit on the main continent first is likely.

    You might be right, but i had culture victorys from pacal, mansa and ramasses and some other civs at 1600ish ad in my games with less than 10 citys. So i wouldn't agree that culture victories are going slow on deity in general.

    Of course those maps where not pangae or any kind of big continent with most civs on one of them.
