COTM 15 Results & Congratulations!
Sorry these are late - I was away on business, and have been struggling to catch-up ever since.
C3C COTM 15:
Karasu's reputation for setting tough games took a king-hit this month, as the number of players scoring Jason's of over 10,000 hit 46! Not only that, this game has the highest Jason score recorded since this methodology was adopted - and guess what? It went to a Cultural 100k Victory!
Kuningas was the winner, finishing a stunning Cultural 100k victory in only 850 AD. He showed the power of feudalism in whipping cathedrals, libraries and Colosseums -

Feudalism is wonderful. Feudalism is all what is needed for 100k. With that cultural whipping can begin hundreds years earlier. In only 30 turns I did whip >200 Cathedrals, >200 Libraries and >100 Colosseum's!!! Thus I was a slacker in that, I ordered governors and used F1 screen. On F1 screen sort along population and go to size 5 cities to rush Library/Cathedral and size 7 cities to rush Colosseum. I wonder how good the date can be with extreme MM. to
tIntentionally I didn't rush all possible Colosseum's due deficit problems may be lost 1-2 turns from win date.
A great effort!
In any other game, Hendrickszoon's 820 AD conquest would probably have been good enough for a gold medal as well, as he scored 12,722 points at the finish in 820 AD. Relatively slow by conquest standards, but he did show what can be achieved when expansion and base-score is balanced against a slower win date.
In third place, MiniMe a;sp scored above 12,000 Jason points with a lightening-fast domination victory. One of 3 people to score a domination victory whilst still in the "BCs", MiniMe got 12,190 points and beat the competition by a good 8 turns.
Summary of Medal Winners:
kuningas: 850 AD Cultural 100k Victory, 13,130 points.
hendrikszoon: 820 AD Conquest Victory, 12,772 points.
MiniMe: 110 BC Domination Victory, 12,190 points.
