why? how u can find how many times I started FROM THE VERY BEGINING. First 100 turns is done in 2-3 hours, I always play first fast game and mention my mistakes in micromanagement. It's harder and way slower to make calculation from the beggining. Actually first and most agresive try is still the best

@Alfa - only so that Piu does not have to raise his voice all alone: what he says is so clearly correct, just say thank you for his friendly hint. we all would be very happy to have you in this friendly competition, but there are of course some rules to it, so please have a look at them before you start the next game. joining this competition for most means great fun and a huge learning experience. especially if you also join the discussion here. however, several exploits are disallowed, re-loading being practically the #1, and you should be well aware of them.
cheers,
t_x

do u see the difference in reloading after mistake or lose battle or what so ever or RESTARTING the game from the very begining? How u will learn how to play if u do not try different strategies. Or play 200-300 turns to find that u make big mistakes on 20-30 turn which rune your game. First rush is the most important. If AI attack and kill u in 50 turn what? wait 3 month for new try? or play just rundom games. I play 2 random games with England to see how MoW can be used effectively. I play just on deity and tried as many times as win - almost everytime just 1 restart - one quick game to see what and how is going on and make proper strategy to real effort.
then I should save very first attemp on 10-th turn and than start test game and next try - continue very first attemp :).
I play to WIN, i do not care about points bla bla. And I'll be happy to share my strategy and learn from others. There is just one - war aggresive and diplo to stay calm others till destroing one by one AI. First try on 2 jan before first rush :).

I see the difference. Both are, in the context of GOTM, cheating and both are disallowed. Restarting from scratch is the bigger exploit, since you can then use map knowledge. Like in the movie Groundhog Day, when Bill Murray eventually knew all the answers.

If you really want to learn how to play better you ARE allowed to use former GOTM games that are past the due date and play them multiple times. For the purposes of this particular competition, you are not allowed to restart and other rules. If you don't care about the competition then great, reload as much as you like just don't submit it.

this is, btw, exactly what i did 10+ years ago, before i regularly joined into our friendly competition.
i "parallel played" a few XOTM games, using any cheats i could, so i would learn and find out how the guys who officially played the game without reloading actually may have done it.
after a while, i felt comfortable to play under competition rules myself. and i never wished to return to the "reloading game" that i had played until then ever since.
the competition simply is not "playing the best hypothetically reachable result". but "playing the best game in a competitive rule set-up".

When I first started playing GOTM, nearly 20 years ago, I was not very good. I'd play the game, submit my loss, and then retry the game multiple times, trying to win it. I had a lot more time then, so I usually got another 5 or so tries at it before the month was up. I was very excited when I got my first green (as opposed to red) ambulance.
