    Civ Fanatics Competition: Fastest STANDARD SETTINGS Deity Domination Victory


    Welcome to the Civ Fanatics Competition (CFC) where we will find out who can pull off the fastest deity domination victory on a game with ALL STANDARD SETTINGS!

    Everyone plays Civ with their own 'standard' I know, but the game gives some 'standard' settings to us and many of us will regularly play them. This competition is meant to see who can achieve the fastest victory on those 'standard' settings.

    Rules


    To make sure it’s a fair competition, make sure to:



    • Not cheat and/or use exploits (you know when you have, it’s that subtle feeling of shame when you post a score you did not earn fairly ). This off course includes using any cheat codes, restarting maps or playing maps you have seen others play, reloading previous saves after mistakes (not crashes, but even then you shouldn’t replay more than one turn exactly as you did before).
    • Follow the GOTM rules, especially the ‘what should we consider as exploits’ (see https://forums.civfanatics.com/forums/civ6-game-of-the-month.545/)
    • If you participate and anyone shows you accidentally or purposely violated the conditions or rules of the competition, your name will be crossed from the top 10.
    ***

    Participate in the contest

    To be eligible for a ‘top position’, post a reply to this thread where you:




    • Mention the number of turns it took you to win the intended victory.
    • Claim your position in the ‘top 10’.
      • End your post with the new ‘top 10’ with you in it (see below).
    • Add the first turn save game and the last turn save game (post victory).
    • Mention the game seeds.
    • For flavor: post screenshots of interesting parts of your game, or even make a video.
    • Describe (the more flavor the better) what your strategy was and how the game went.
    ***

    Current Top 10

    Copy and paste, and enter yourself into the top 10 list if your score is worthy!

    Turn 149 Domination Victory. I think a better player than I am could have gotten this done 20 turns sooner, so I've included some intermediary saves. My best time since the September Patch for Domination.

    There were some aspects that favored a fast win and some that almost made me discard it. I did find an early Relic, which led to Religious Settlements without even needing to slot God-King. I had quite a bit of room for expansion, both good and bad because I had to hard-research Political Philosophy and there was tons of room for Barbs to spawn. Lots of Horses meant that the Barbs were often mounted, and my capitol actually got pillaged pretty thoroughly by a horde. The other civs had weird priorities this game, so I actually got Sun Tzu and Hypatia

    My two nearest neighbors decided to fight amongst themselves rather than harass me, which let me clean up two weakened and depleted civs by turn 73. I could have probably pursued any victory condition for a sub-200 Turn game after I absorbed Kongo and Phoenicia.

    I did build a small army, which got annihilated approaching Meroe from the Southwest; that capital was a deathtrap with many chokepoints and blocking cities. Most of the work by far was done with Levied forces, much cheaper to upgrade, Raven King-boosted and as fast as light cavalry.

    Congrats @Casualty of war for a great domination victory! Matthias is my favourite dom civ, I just love steamrolling the planet. :)

    I loaded your last save, your map and game seed are: -827628446 and -827628447, could you add them to your post (and preferably also a turn 1 save if you have it).

    Thanks for kicking of this competition, I'm wondering who can/will beat you turn time!

    No turn 1 save. I did a big Save purge and accidentally kept the wrong Matthias Turn 1.

    No biggie if it's not "official." Just trying to prompt some others to start participating.

    A first turn save can always be re-created using the right settings and the game seed, so for me this one's official. :)
