    So true.
    To be fair, in case such as described one would probably be able to build enough missionaries to spread the faith.
    Compared to UN diplomatic victory, AP diplomatic victory doesn't make much sense in boundary conditions such as the one in the comic.
    To fix this, some other conditions in addition to each civilization having the religion need to be added.
    One of such could be that cities containing the religion would need to account for atleast x% of world total population.

    Alternatively (and this goes for UN victory, too):

    Diplomatic/Religious victory requires at least Y civs with at least X total votes. That way, you can never vote yourself into victory.

    Haha nice one.
    Your bitterness towards Firaxis amuses me greatly.

    Yeah, amusing as it was, there are only so many laughs to be had from pushing over a straw-man. Easy to make fun of someone when you get to put whatever words you like in their mouth, eh.

    The situation you described sounds highly improbable (impossible even? not sure, I turn diplomatic victory off most of the time) to me. On top of that, the conquering guy should have seen it coming and spread Hinduism around his own empire a bit.

    The other solution would be to do what I do - turn Diplomatic Victories off, I've never liked them. The Religious version seems potentially even worse than the UN version.

    Are you sure read anything but the first two sentences of my post? It was a straw-man. If you can't see that (or worse, don't know what it means) then stick to chuckling and stay out of arguing.

    As you are partially quoting me (didnt bother to add the suggestions I made to the guy with 1 post who came to whinge), I suppose I should defend myself from this inneffective and puerile stereotype that is based on the fact that I disagree with your inept play and poor understanding of the game.

    Rather than try to engage in intelligent discussion, parody is clearly a fitting alternative. Perhaps you realised that you couldnt actually bring any valid discussion to support yourself and felt that drawing people in a condescending way would somehow bolster your impotence?

    Funny how about 5 people have whinged at their incapacity to deal with the AP.... and of course, this immediately indicates that it is incredibly broken. It really is such a shame that this AP victory is a problem that you can't use the WB to correct - of course something must be done to salvage your ego from the pit of ineptness.

    You lost..... deal with it. In the immortal words of WoW - "Learn to play the game, noob" ;)

    Oh and reporting this as it is basically an ad hominem attack.

    With the 15 posts you have here, all you have done is attack the game, the designers and now the fans.

    Doesn't the fact that over half of your posts have been moderated or locked tell you something?

    Troll away, I look forward to seeing you banned.

    I wouldn't care less if he didn't quote me - he's entitled to whatever opinions he wants.... but as he quoted me and used a libellous picture to characterise me (and by extension people who agree with me), I think that it is far from acceptable and downright offensive.

    Didn't realise he incorrectly labelled you (if he meant to that is), so accept my apologies. I just found it amusing, even though I don't agree with its concept.
