    I'm not a HoF staffer. Based on Civ V HoF, a lot has to be done. Firstly, they need to decide which patch to start from. Then they need to create a way to easily tell if people are cheating (e.g. replaying from saves, exploiting bugs etc.). There will probably be a beta first. If it's the exact same pattern as Civ V, it could be April 7, but a lot of people say Civ VI was released prematurely because Beyond Earth sucked, so it may take longer until the game is in good enough shape to accept HoF entries.

    Unfortunately we're not really close to being able to accept saves as yet.

    Rolfejason, I would also add that if you look at Civ 5 HoF you'll see you can submit games won at any level. They give medals if you are in the top three of six entries, at that particular level of granularity. The most popular games tend to be gauntlets, which are often not at Deity. Top 3 is decided by either score or time. Most people care more about time. HoF is valuable because it shows wins are trustworthy e.g. Blatc just broke t190 for Deity Standard Great Plains Poland which is a tremendous achievement, and being in the HoF shows there was no save-scumming, or pre-built maps.

    Additionally, before they accept saves they need to decide what is/ isn't considered an exploit. E.g. Carl Sagan overflow for non-science victory. Gold trading with AI. Etcetera. And they have to be able to check it easily. If they don't go through all this, people will submit games that make a mockery of the HoF.
