There are no HOF entries that I saw for BTS that are 100% standard maps. Maybe though they just didn't score high enough. At any rate do you have wins on Deity with the following settings: Std size map. Continents 6 AI all random No custom game options Std speed Basically I have found that anytime you force the AI out of the classic style of play they suck worse than ever. I normally play with no options though sometimes through in Epic which makes it easier and it isn't too much trouble (or time which I don't have) to win on Emperor. Immortal I tend to lose and Deity is a loss. I am looking for some tips or ideas to beating a regular deity game without hosing the AI any more than it already is.
