    I'm foaming at the mouth and spitting blood trying to get a BC conquest win for the Hall of Fame. :gripe:

    Out of 10,000 maps, these 2 were selected. (Thanks Map Finder)
    But irritatingly, I fell a bit short on both maps. :cry:

    Can you conquer all the AI before 1AD?!
    Requires the mod BUFFY 3.19.005 to play.


    Game settings:
    Playing as:
    Huyuna Capac of Inca
    Rivals: 6 AIs
    Difficulty: Deity
    Starting Era:
    Ancient
    Speed: Normal
    Options: No random events, No barbarians, No world builder, Aggressive AI
    Victory Conditions:
    All enabled

    Map settings:
    Map:
    Pangaea
    World Wrap: Toroidal
    Mapsize: Standard
    Climate: Temperate
    Sea level: High
    Shoreline: Solid
    Spoiler :
    These settings causes the map script to go crazy and generate between 375 and 750 land tiles.

    Aggressive AI means it is much easier to get a Cease Fire if you have military within 2 tiles of an AI city.
    More cities threatened is better.
    If the AI is threatening your city, then it makes Cease Fire harder.
    Overall, Agg. AI is great for stealing Workers on Deity.
    Cease Fire is normally governed by the power ratio of Soldiers.

    Map 1 (Beyond Crowded :evil:)



    Map 2 (A bit more roomy, for you and the AI both :mischief:)


    Vassaling the AI is recommended, but capturing or razing all the cities works too. :D
    Try not to accidently get Domination at the end, burn those cities.

    If you can achieve the Conquest win on either map before 1AD (Turn 115), you have my sincere respect. :bowdown:

    So much food on the 2nd map.... love making me some GP farm ^_^

    I can’t see what other units other than horse archers to make this work.

    **chuckles at NO barbarians**

    I'm not sure how well HA's work on these kinds of maps.
    When the AI run out of room to expand, they start filling their cities with units.

    Mostly it has been Elepault carrying the day after gobbling up about 2AI with Q's.

    On both maps, I botched the start pretty badly :sad:, but they were so compelling I tried to keep going.
    Spoiler :
    Stalled on 2 fronts with 2 armies. :lol:
    Thunder Run through Chariot and Axe land with 20 Q's and signing a cease fire with the last Archer in the holy city at 0.2hp. :hammer2:

    That's why I feel BC should be theoretically possible.

    As long as people start over from turn 0 on following attempts, I'll tip my hat to them if they can beat the challenge.

    So just to get this straight, you're asking us to set a HoF record.... by 800 years... and not have it count for the HoF!?
    Sounds fun, let's topple Anysense!
