    Karasu set another interesting and challenging Conquests game for COTM-14, in which a seemingly powerful starting location was uncomfortably close to an agressive Bismark - there was more than one player who found themselves over-run within only a few turns.

    The archapelago map didn't stop the elite from turning-in some very fast conquest and domination victories. Hendrikszoon calimed his fourth gold medal with another conquest victory. He wasn't the fastest though - that honour went to Dynamic; 3 turns faster, but over 500 points behind overall. In third place, Lord Hamster picked-up his first medal and first award as he submitted the fastest domination victory.



    Summary of Medal Winners:

    hendrikszoon: 320 AD Conquest Victory, 12,368 points.

    Dynamic: 290 AD Conquest Victory, 11,838 points.

    Lord Hamster: 370 AD Domination Victory, 11,803 points.

    Congrats everybody. A special mention to Dave of course, and for the expected Diplo victory of MiniMe. A great date for Kuningas also, well done. As for me i got rid of Spaceship, something that i wont pursue anytime soon again. The Jason sucked however :( , i have to improve my early milking abilities. I tend to focus only on the finish date and forget about early territory and pop development. Anyway, its very nice to get my first COTM award :)

    Congrats to DaveMcW on a great date for such a tough map. I doubt I'd have kept up even if my game hadn't tanked early on.

    Congrats to Hedrickszoon and Dynamic- you guys (along with Klarius) have taken the gold medal race to another level. I can't express how impressed I am!

    Well done Kuningas! all I can say is that I hope you're not going for a 20K win this month! 1530AD must be pretty close to the fastest time possible.

    Congratulations to winners! Fantastic (for me) dates!
    Especially thanks to Dynamic and Hamster! Go on - the goal is closer and closer! :)
    (sorry, can't resist - they'll understand what i mean :)).

    Also, I extremely happy taking the award :). My first -and I hope not last :).
    At 960 I can won by conquest or domination. But somehow I thought - "Why I can't do some milking?". It was rather a strange decision - I hate a long games, and I never was good in milking. I simply can't stand five hundred turns of micromanagement. So I irrigated everything, built markets and hostpitals, automated all workers. Then I took my small bottle of deodorant and put it on the 'enter' key - and went sleep. :p Three hours later the game was made.
    19 hours for 540 turns - not bad I think. ;)
    And now I've got a cow!
    I realize it's only fortune - thanks to other players, they didn't choose milking. But it doesn't matter - I'm absolutely delighted with the game! :)

    Congratulations to all for many outstanding games, especially to DaveMcW! I received my first award, a lowest scoring 100K victory shield. Of course, one day, I would like to be in the position of the man who won via 100K in 1345AD... Wow! :goodjob:

    Congrats to all winners. Especially hendrikszoon and Dynamic for their impressive conquests. Special nod to A'AbarachAmadan who was up there with them regarding finish date, only beaten by Dynamic.

    I don't actively seek the Shield awards, but thought I'd probably get the 20K one playing my OCC this month. Imagine my surprise when 2 players got lower scores! Not easy to do; in my game I estimate the Vikings would have launched by the early 1800's so getting the lower score would require slowing down the AI considerably while maintaining a small empire (but you can't get smaller than one city :D ).

    Playing Archipelago must present a green light to the Conquest/Domination players! Just look at the impressive scores and games submitted. Congratulations to the Winners, and :goodjob: to all participants.

    Congrats to the winners....alas, I was not one of them. This was a tough game, Germany was very aggressive right at the start. It was everything I could do to survive at all after the initial attack. Anyways, hats off to the experts!

    :hatsoff: :clap: :worship:

    Congrats for great results. But I'm disapointted myself, second time losing diplo win by only few turns (770 vs 730). I was ahead before IA but that IA was a disaster.

    Was I the only one who managed to keep Germany non-hostile all game? Seems like everyone else either killed them or got killed by them.

    Sorry about that Drazek (well, not really :p ). As revenge you will no doubt crush my conquest date in GOTM45!
