    Newcomers are as usual always welcome. Just be advised that HOF Beta Rules do apply, in addition to these settings.
    • Difficulty: Noble
    • Mapsize: Standard
    • Starting Era: Ancient
    • Speed: Epic
    • Submitted on or before: April 24th.
    • Victory Condition: Conquest (though all victory conditions must be enabled)
    • Map Type: Archipelago
    • Opponents: Rome, Greece, Eygpt, Persia, Mali, Spain, and one other.
    • Patch: 1.52

    The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.

    I apologise for the stupid question, but can the HOF mod be used. I read somewhere that no mods are allowed in the HOF games.

    Cheers.

    Questions:

    Do we turn off all other victory conditions?

    Can we use any Landmass type? or is that Archipelago too?

    No. HOF entries must have all victory conditions enabled or they don't qualify for the tables.

    Landmass type is at player's discretion, so long as the continents option is set to Archipelago.

    I was getting bored with the game but this has my interest. You should get a lot more participation in this gauntlet.

    Good luck everyone.

    I suggest using ships ;-)

    I have a question, may my civ be Rome, even if one of my oponents is Rome too?

    Good suggestion:lol: but if there's any one tile cities :crazyeye: I can't win with only ships, I need a bunch of amphibious units.

    I think repeated leaders are not allowed.

    This looks interesting. I'm not particularly good at island maps, so this should be a learning experience.

    Quick question: I assume that the official win will be given to the highest score and not the earliest finish, right?
