I really like the Steam achievements for this game - not so much for the thrill of unlocking them, but for the fascinating glimpse into how everyone else is playing the game (not just people who answer polls at this forum). I thought I'd share some, because some are exactly what you'd expect and some are a little surprising. Bear in mind that these can be somewhat misleading; they mostly only chart finished games, and I'm sure plenty of people (me included) don't follow games through to the inevitable conclusion when they're clearly massively ahead. They chart the game since its release, through all the balance changes that have happened since. And they don't chart number total number of times something has been finished, only the percentage of people that have finished it at least once. They also don't chart modded games, but then only 12.5% of people have ever even downloaded a mod. So grain of salt and all that. The most unlocked is Treasure hunter (found a ruin) at 90.5%, indicating that about ten percent of people are either really really unlucky or bought the game and never actually played it. The least unlocked (apart from DLC scenario achievements) is Model of a Modern Major General at 0.1%, which I've heard may be bugged anyway (?). It can sometimes seem around here that everybody but you is playing Deity, and that you must be immensely hopeless if you aren't too. Not the case at all, as it turns out! Even when you take into account that these statistics include when the game was just released and generally considered considerably easier. Percentage of people who have won a game at each level: Chieftain 27.8% Settler 18.1% Warlord 16.8% Prince 14.8% King 5.7% Emperor 2.8% Immortal 1.4% Deity 1.1% Most popular civs, which has very little correlation with the "most powerful civs" polls that always pop up here. Civs by games won (apologies if I missed any): Washington 13.6% Caesar 10.9% Napoleon 10.2% Catherine 10.0% Ramesses 9.8% Oda 9.5% Bismarck 9.5% Alexander 8.6% Elizabeth 8.0% Gandhi 7.2% Wu Zetian 6.6% Harun al-Rashid 6.4% Darius 6.4% Montezuma 6.3% Hiawatha 5.4% Ramkhamhaeng 5.2% Askia 5.1% Genghis 3.9% Suleiman 3.5% Nebuchadnezzar 1.3% Pachacuti 1.1% Isabella 1.1% Kamehameha 0.9% Harald Bluetooth 0.7% Most popular victories: Domination 28.9% Space 23.2% Cultural 14.5% Diplomatic 14.0% Most won map types: Continents 31.2% Pangaea 16.7% Earth 14.2% Archipelago 8.9% Most won map sizes: Small 24.9% Standard 20.4% Duel 14.4% Tiny 10.9% Huge 10.7% Large 9.6% Most-finished policy trees: Liberty 45.9% Tradition 35.5% Honour 32.9% Piety 31.6% Commerce 27.7% Freedom 27.2% Patronage 19.7% Rationalism 19.6% Order 19.2% Autocracy 7.2% Anyway those are the most interesting stats, I think!
