    AI AutoPlay 9 - Deity - Pick the Winning Leader!




    Welcome back to the ninth game of the AI AutoPlay Deity - Pick the Winning Leader! competition.​


    Please make a note of the fact that the C-part of the competition has been changed this time. A new table will be made, based on points given for each correct answer in that section.

    Game nine sees two previous winners (Joao II and Charlemagne) up against each other. Will one of them get a second win? In eight previous games we've had eight different winners, so perhaps it is time for a ninth?

    Both the previous winners are located on the Western Continent, so they'll meet early. Both West and East have five leaders each, while the Middle Continent has two leaders. Only Boudica is semi-isolated in the Middle Island. But she will reach the Middle Continent early with a Work Boat.

    Western Continent:
    Charlemagne, De Gaulle, Joao II, Ragnar & Wang Kon (5)

    Eastern Continent:
    Asoka, Bismarck, Darius I, Lincoln & Montezuma (5)

    Middle Continent:
    Isabella & Zara Yacob (2)

    Middle Island:
    Boudica (1)


    This time there was no separating the top two contenders as both had the exact same winner, condition and date...


    :trophy: lymond & Pangaea :trophy:
    (both had Zara Yaqob, Space Race, AD 1870)


    :trophy3rd: dutchfire :trophy3rd:
    (had Zara Yaqob, but chose Culture, AD 1800)


    Spoiler Table for Eliminations (part B) :
    The Eliminated leaders were: Boudica, De Gaulle, Isabella, Montezuma, Ragnar & Wang Kon

    Top Three:
    1st - Major Tom - 62.50
    2nd - Zhary - 61.90
    3rd - shpeka - 58.33

    *Unlucky Zacar were 4th with 55.00. Had he switched Asoka or Lincoln for one eliminated leader he would've won with 73.33 instead of the annoying 4th place (so close, yet so far away...)

    Spoiler Table for Part C :
    Four participants went seriously for this part of the competition. Here is the table:

    1st - Zacar - 14 pts
    2nd - shpeka - 8 pts
    2nd - Zhary - 8 pts
    4th - dutchfire - 7 pts

    *as the C-part is currently in a trial and error mode, I'd appreciate input from the participants about which categories to cut, and which ones to keep! I feel that the current format contains a bit too many. But I'm not sure which you prefer I keep in, and which ones you could do without...

    A World's History
    - the brief version -
    (World #9)


    Part One - Expansion, Faith, Cruelty and Awe...

    Spoiler Part One :

    CITIES:
    3775 BC was the date Ragnar, as the last of the leaders, settled his 2nd city, Uppsala. First to settle city #3 was Joao II, as he founded Guimar√£es in 3275 BC. In rapid succession we then got Vienna (Charlemagne) 3275 BC, Tolosa (Boudica) 3250 BC, Tlatelolco (Montezuma) 3225 BC, Vijayanagara (Asoka) 3150 BC, Ghuzz (1st Barbarian city) 3150 BC, Susa (Darius I) 3100 BC, Navajo (2nd Barbarian city) 3075 BC, Boston (Lincoln) 3000 BC, Lalibela (Zara Yaqob) 2975 BC, Seville (Isabella) 2950 BC, Thracian (3rd Barbarian city) 2950 BC, Lyons (De Gaulle) 2925 BC, Wonsan (Wang Kon) 2900 BC and Munich (Bismarck) 2775 BC. Ragnar didn't settle his 3rd city, Haithabu, until 2525 BC (after Joao II had settled his 5th).
    Spoiler Zara Yaqob boxed in Isabella early :
    " align="" border="0" />

    Spoiler Early Joao II - Charlemagne borders :
    " align="" border="0" />


    EARLY RELIGION:
    Asoka founded Buddhism at Bombay in 3700 BC. And made it his state religion 3675 BC. Isabella founded Hinduism at Barcelona in 3325 BC, and converted to her new creed in 3300 BC. Judaism was founded at Coimbra (Joao II) in 2525 BC. However, Portugal didn't introduce a state religion until 2475 BC. Why he waited one extra turn, I don't know...

    Hinduism had spread down south from Barcelona to the Celtic capital of Bibracte. This resulted in Boudica converting to the Spanish religion in 2350 BC. In 2275 BC Buddhism had spread into the German city of Munich. Bismarck promptly became the second leader to adopt a foreign religion as his state religion. Two hundred years later (2075 BC) his neighbour to the west, Montezuma, also adopted Buddhism as his state religion, after it had spread to Tlaxcala.
    Spoiler Religions of the World :
    " align="" border="0" />


    CIVICS:
    Slavery became the first popular change. Joao II was the first one to adopt it in 3575 BC. Bismarck (3350 BC), Charlemagne (3325 BC), Zara Yaqob (3200 BC), Asoka (3100 BC) and De Gaulle (3075 BC) also adopted the ideology before the world celebrated it's 1000th birthday.

    Twenty-five years after he had founded Judaism, and twenty-five years before making it his state religion, Joao II adopted Organized Religion. It didn't catch on as fast as Slavery had done, but Asoka adopted it in 2275 BC, and Isabella in 1775 BC.

    WONDERS:
    The first reports came in at about 2550 BC that Germany had done something with the perceived threat from the unruly citizens of Navajo, a little NW of Hamburg. It was later confirmed by travellers that the German Empire had erected a great wall along its borders to protect itself from barbarian incursions into their territories.

    Spoiler The Great Wall :
    " align="" border="0" />


    The Indian city of Bombay started to get some visitors as well. It was the Stonehenge, completed in 2525 BC that drew curious neighbours in to stand in awe before the great monument.

    This success apparently inspired India to begin even greater projects. The capital, Delhi, saw the completion of The Oracle in 1700 BC. It has been said that The Oracle of Delhi was the reason for the founding of Christianity. But this has been ridiculed by sceptics. They don't seem to believe that The Oracle would help in diminishing its own influence by allowing the foundation of a competing faith. Also, how could that be true when Christianity was founded in Bombay? A different location from that of The Oracle itself. Despite logic telling us differently, some still firmly believe in The Oracle's part in the creation of the Christian faith.

    Just fifty years after The Oracle, De Gaulle and Bismarck completed The Pyramids (Paris) and The Great Lighthouse (Berlin), respectively.

    GREAT PEOPLE:
    Ptolemy (scientist) was born to Lincoln(Washington) in 2025 BC. He became famous for being the driving force behind the later renowned science academy in the American capital. In 1350 BC Gottfried Leibniz (scientist) also arose from the scientific community of Washington. He later settled in Boston, because he just couldn't compete with the fame of Ptolemy in Washington. Leibniz didn't like being number two...

    Around the same time as Leibniz, Charlotte Corday (spy) was born in Berlin, Germany. She ushered in a golden age for the German people as she inspired craftsmen and merchants alike. In 1125 BC Mohammed Shah (prophet) was born in Madrid. During the height of the Spanish Civilization he helped found the Kashi Vishwanath in Barcelona, much to the envy of the Ethiopian neighbours to the west.

    GOLDEN AGES:
    As mentioned before, Bismarck was the first (by a huge margin) leader to get a golden age. His 1325 BC golden age was the only one to exist in the BC's. The next one appeared in Portugal in AD 40. Again it was a spy, Joe Matise, who was responsible for the increased productivity of the people in his nation of birth. Charlemagne was the third leader to get a golden age. Bi Sheng (engineer) kick-started it in 655.

    INFLUENTIAL CITIES:
    The first city of the world to reach Influential Culture was Bombay in India. That happened in 520. The second leader to see one of his cities reach this reputation was Joao II. Lisbon reached it in 1030. Aachen of the Holy Roman Empire was the city that made Charlemagne become the third leader with at least one influential city within his empire in 1270.

    OTHER NEWS:
    De Gaulle completed The Pyramids in Paris, 1650 BC. Then he adopted Universal Suffrage in 1625 BC (?). It was not until 975 BC he adopted Representation, as the world's first leader to do so. Joao II completed The Taj Mahal in 160. However, he was in a golden age at the time, so the wonder didn't start one, just extended the one already in place.

    In the same year as Joao II completed The Taj Mahal, Wang Kon proved the world to be round when he successfully completed a circumnavigation of the globe. In 310 Joao II was the first leader to reach Liberalism. Portugal was rewarded with discovering the benefits of Economics, and adopted Free Market in 325.

    Creative Constructions were founded by Thomas Edison in Delhi, 1345. This was the first of six corporations to see the light of day. Only Sid's Sushi didn't appear in this game (!).

    Asoka also was the first leader to finish the Apollo Program. That happened in 1440. In the end Zara Yaqob won a Space Race Victory in 1764.



    Part Two - The Eternal War (and other wars)

    Spoiler Part Two :

    FIRST DECLARATION:
    Spoiler At the Eve of The Eternal War :
    " align="" border="0" />


    Tension between the world's leaders had risen. 2100 BC, at the eve of the Eternal War, we see that Ragnar and De Gaulle both regard Wang Kon to be their worst enemy. Despite this, De Gaulle would not become involved in war until the AD's. The reason it is named "The Eternal War" is the fact that it was the first declaration of war in the world (2100 BC) and it lasted until the Viking Civilization was eliminated (AD 1285). That is, 3 385 years of constant war between the Vikings and Korea! In all this time, the only city to change hands between the two enemies was Uppsala. The city was captured by Wang Kon in 170 BC, almost two millennia after the break-out of hostilities. There were some Great Generals born, though. Arminius was born in 1650 BC to Wang Kon in Seoul, while Erwin Rommel was born to Ragnar in 1375 BC at Nidaros. Those were the first two great people arising as a result of the war.

    We can also see from the 2100 BC report on international relations that Montezuma is not liked by anyone. He doesn't seem to like anyone either, by the way. However, Lincoln and Bismarck are pleased toward each other. This would prove to be problematic for Montezuma, as he later went to war with Lincoln. Here is the breakdown of the most important facts:

    1900 BC - Montezuma declares war on Lincoln.
    1875 BC - Atlanta (Lincoln) was captured by Montezuma.
    1850 BC - Bismarck declares war on Montezuma.
    975 BC - Atlanta (Montezuma) was captured Lincoln.
    425 BC - Montezuma declares war on Lincoln.
    380 BC - Bismarck declares war on Montezuma.
    130 - Montezuma declares war on Lincoln.
    145 - Bismarck declares war on Montezuma.

    Three times did Montezuma declare on Lincoln. Three times did Bismarck declare on Montezuma a few years later. Montezuma never did manage to get the upper hand with these two-front wars that were forced upon him. Later Darius I declared on Montezuma (in 760). That war lasted until the elimination of the Aztec Empire in 1395.

    FIRST SERIOUS WAR:
    The first war-declaration that actually led to a monumental change of the political map came about in 265, when Zara Yaqob decided to leave his peaceful ways in favour of a more militaristic approach towards world affairs. He declared on his small eastern neighbour, Isabella. Five captured cities, and a thousand-and-five years, later, the Spanish Civilization ceased to exist.

    This was not the only Ethiopian conflict with focus on "Total War." Zara Yaqob declared on Wang Kon in 775. This war lasted until Korea faded into nothingness in 1560. In 1295 Ethiopia declared on Boudica. The war ended with the elimination of the Celtic Empire in 1480.

    The only war Zara Yaqob started that didn't end with his enemy being eliminated, was his 1390-declaration on Holy Rome. Charlemagne quickly conquered the former Korean cities on his continent. Later Zara Yaqob sent more troops to take them back. When peace was agreed upon in 1660, both sides had captured five cities each. These were the same cities Ethiopia originally had taken from Wang Kon and Ragnar (Wonsan, Namp'o, P'yongyang and Uppsala). None of the original Holy Roman or Ethiopian cities changed hands.

    Asoka was the only leader who generally razed cities instead of taking them over. This happened in his war against De Gaulle. He razed eight cities to eliminate France from the world.

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

    Spoiler Peace Dominates after French Elimination :

    Part Three - The Space Race

    Spoiler Part Three :

    Spoiler The Space Race :
    " align="" border="0" />


    Zara Yaqob won a Space Race Victory in 1764. Diplomatic victory was far away for both candidates (Zara Yaqob and Asoka). Zara Yaqob held the most land, but with 28 per cent (out of a needed 52) he didn't stand a chance to get Domination. Asoka had both Delhi (64,779) and Bombay (50,866) at influential culture, but the third Indian city, Agra, was only at 26,262 cp's in 1762. Even if he started fuelling his commerce into culture, Agra would've been way too late...

    In the end we can conclude that Zara Yaqob made the most out of his continent. He blocked off, and later eliminated, Isabella. Then he took out a weak Boudica and Wang Kon. The war he started with Charlemagne ended with a "draw." But as he was "immune" from danger on his own large-enough continent, he could just research towards space without many problems. Had he and Charlemagne been on the same continent, though....(?)

    The two previous winning leaders (Joao II and Charlemagne) were basically pleased with each other the whole game. They never attacked each other. Joao II was boxed in by Charlemagne, while the latter didn't really get a military campaign off the ground in this game.

    Too many categories to pick names for all, but I'll go with Zara as winner, going to Space in 1870. Mainly because Zara always seems to tech well in my games, almost no matter what, and that looks like a fine start with gold, FPs and marble. Being sort-of-semi-isolated may be an issue in terms of land, but I'll go with him anyway.

    Hello, Pangaea.

    Yes, I know it is a lot.

    But the main competition is the A-section anyways. The rest is for those who wants to try their luck at honourable mentions.

    So, only the winner(s) of the A-part of the competition is challenging for a BIG mention with large letters in the middle of the post... :D


    Yours Sincerely

    Zara will quickly box Isabella, who will found an early religion (one of the first 3), to which Zara will convert, making them best friends for the rest of the game. Zara will have the land advantage no doubt, but much of that land seems to be a desert anyway so i dont think hell win this. Neither will Isabella, Spain will remain too small of a nation, probably warring no-stop with the heathen Celts to the south (I dont expect Boudica to win either, galley invasions are easy to repel, no way she can establish a beachhead in that continent, Zara would 100% join the war to retake any city she may conquer from Spain).

    A strong contender for victory will be Charlemagne, im positive that he will settle the most good land, thanks to being imperialistic and having a more advantageous starting position than Joao. And hell manage to defend his land from any threat, even conquer a litle from his neighbours.

    On the eastern continent, Montezuma will probably start warring with everybody, and since vassal states are disabled and cites can flip after capture, he wont be able to achieve many conquests. Asoka will be the winner of this game. Hes too far away from the Aztec threat and i think hell get along with the germans. Asoka will achieve a cultural victory by 1800 AD.

    A quick question:

    What is the reasoning behind "City flipping after conquest"? Snowball effect protection?

    Hi there, nice series of AI games taking place here! I thought I'd mention for anyone interested that we're doing something similar over at Realms Beyond right now. We're running a similar tournament of Civ4 AI leaders which we call AI Survivor after the reality TV show. Here's a link to the competition from last year, and the new version for 2015 will be starting this week on Friday. I'll link to the information page for Season Two as well. Last year we used written reports, but this year the games are going to be done on Livestream for anyone who wants to watch in real time. I apologize for interrupting the thread, but I thought there might be some shared interest based on the similar nature of these AI games.

    Thanks, best of luck Kjotleik! :)

    GREAT! :king::goodjob:

    Season Two of Sullla's AI Survivor-series is on. I enjoyed the first season you made. It was one of two inspirations for me to start my own AI AutoPlay series...

    EVERYBODY
    should follow this one. It will be a blast...

    I cannot promise I'll follow this live, but at the very least I'll be watching the archived footage on twitch...

    Really interesting choice about removing technology-trading from the game. I can see this becoming a problem for some of the AI's... but will this actually help Tokugawa once he is up? Who knows? Not enough to survive his game, I'm afraid I'd have to predict...(now if I could get a hold of this Great Prophet of mine to confirm... but alas, he's gone when you need him the most...)


    Yours Sincerely
    Kjotleik of Norway :D

    Hello, shpeka!

    Sort of, yes! To give less tech-savvy AI's a chance to get something back after getting a peace-treaty with the big military powers invading their lands.

    I kind of feel like an AI should be punished for NOT killing off a weak neighbour if he has the chance to do so... Leaving a lone unit in a city swamped with the former owner's culture should not be rewarded with eternal ownership (eternal=until lost in war).


    Yours Sincerely
    Kjotleik of Norway :)

    Westside: Charley outrex Ragnar and Wang. Joao rex well too but not enough space here. DeGaulle got plenty of land and will grow strong. Charley and DeGaulle will have a huge final fight there for domination. Charley win that war.

    Center: Boudica isolated and will stay on bottom half of scoreboard. Agree with Flipantropo about Zara/Isabella scenario. Zara on top there.

    Eastside: Monty kills Lincoln. Bismarck kills Monty. Darius and Asoka tries for Culture. Bismarck will dominate endgame there.

    See no tech runaways. Perhaps east has an edge.

    Conclusion: Bismarck for spacewin 1870.
    Eliminated: Ragnar, Wang, Lincoln and Monty.
    First DoW: Monty on Lincoln.
    Librace: Darius.

    Izzy 1850

    Lincoln
    ...C1.4 - First discovers Liberalism
    Zara
    ...C1.5 - First starts a Corporation

    My guess all depends on how the religion founding goes. If Charlie gets Buddhism, it's likely to be the only religion on that continent, ie a Buddhist lovefest (nobody else on the western continent starts with Mysticism except Wang IIRC). If a Buddhist lovefest occurs, that should speed up the tech rate, leading to a Charlie Space Race 1880. Lots of land to expand into + Protective & Imperialistic means he should be able to grab it quickly and hold it.

    And I probably can't guess twice, but if no lovefest occurs, I'm going for Bismark Space Race 1860.
