Civ Fanatics Competition: Fastest STANDARD SETTINGS Deity Science Victory Welcome to the Civ Fanatics Competition (CFC) where we will find out who can pull off the fastest deity science 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. *** Start conditions To participate, start and play a game that matches the following conditions: #players: 8 Leader: Any AI Leaders: Random Ruleset: Gathering Storm Version : September update or higher Difficulty: Deity Start Era: Ancient Era Game Speed: Standard #City States: 12 Disaster Intensity: 2 Map: Any map that is randomly generated (NOT: Earth, East Asia, Europe or any of the TSL variants of those three. Also: no custom build maps!) Map Size: Standard Resources: Standard World Age: Standard Start Position Standard Temperature: Standard Rainfall: Standard Sea Level: Standard Victory Conditions: All enabled Advanced Options: All default Mods: UI (only!) mods allowed, no other Special conditions: Any random seed / map can only enter the competition once. Any player can join the competition multiple times, but always with a different map seed. *** 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! 1st place: [player] - [number of turns] - [leader/country] 2nd place: 3rd place: 4th place: 5th place: 6th place: 7th place: 8th place: 9th place: 10th place: Have fun!
