The Fastest Science Victory thread turned into an excellent place for players to share strategy and support each each other in pursuit of personal best finish times and top Hall of Fame finishes. This thread is intended to do the same for fast Domination Victory. With Deity SV, there were a few different civs capable of contending for a top spot. With Domination, I think we either need to focus on individual Civs or categorize into 3 types of Domination style: 1) Huns - vadalaz has the fastest Deity Domination (standard) finish at T60 with the Huns, with a huge gap to the 2nd fastest finish. The potential for an early Battering Ram from ruins warrants putting the Huns in a category of their own. 2) Water Domination - this includes both naval units capturing coastal cities and Polynesia using their unique ability to travel over water early game. The fastest Deity Domination (standard) appears to be Manpanzee with Polynesia T106 on an Arborea map, followed by vadalaz T119 with Byzantium on Archipegalo. 3) Land Domination - primarily (or exclusively) land battles with no specific bonuses towards water conquest or movement. Depending how you would categorize Byzantium on a Pangaea map, the fastest HoF finish here is either vadalaz T132 (Byzantium) or moriarte T153 with Arabia on Pangaea. I acknowledge there may be disagreements on how to categorize Domination victories; hopefully vadalaz will chime in and perhaps we can get a consensus on DomV styles. I think the simplest categorization would be that Land Domination would not include: *unique unit naval attacks *UA bonus impacting movement in water *'water-based' maps Otherwise, we can focus on individual civs and pursue our own personal best finishes, as well as fastest HoF finishes for that civ. Following the excellent Arabia map recently posted by beetle, I'd like to get into specific strategy for optimizing a fast Arabia DomV. vadalaz has estimated that sub-T120 is doable; I'd suggest Great Plains/GPP are likely the best Arabia maps. Please note: I am focusing on Deity with this post. Players are welcome to discuss other difficulty levels; however, please be clear if you are writing about lower difficulty levels, otherwise we should assume Deity.
