    While the general Hall of Fame is an ongoing competition, we like to run time-definite competitions between updates that we call Gauntlets. Standard Hall of Fame rules (*) still apply, but any games meeting the settings will be counted towards the Gauntlet.

    (*) Please read the >> HOF rules << BEFORE playing!

    Settings:
    • Expansion: Brave New World
    • Victory Condition: Domination (though all victory conditions must be enabled)
    • Difficulty: Emperor
    • Map Size: Large
    • Map Type: Continents
    • Speed: Epic
    • Leader: Japan (Oda Nobunaga)
    • Opponents: Any
    • Version: SV8
    • Date: 18th June to 1st August 2017
    The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.

    per galleas @t175 tech discovered compass 6 turns in capital, down to 5 with next population.
    education t-188
    3 capitals in control, home continent
    ai's that roll coastal in game:
    Jakarta, Rio, Madrid, Lisbon
    inland:
    Siam, Gandhi and Sweden(built the statue of zeus, thanks man) last continent morocco washington
    replacing with denmark william and elizabeth if new attempt
    GL t65 NC t94 Civil Service t148

    Spain found a bunch of wonders early game, Barcelona settled Great Barrier offered friendship and was robbed for all her gold in exchange for gpt and lux
    spear-man x2 and archer x5 upgrade cost 110 g per unit cca t145-t150

    tradition - mercantilism upgrade costs
    +235g trireme to caravel
    +260g galleas to frigate
    +145g cbow to xbow
    +220 landsknechts

    the map had 4 landmasses in the end, lisbon coastal, washington and marrakech on the last continent inland... frigates were there, however manouvering some land troops took some turns extra - high sea maps possibly not the best for domination game in some cases, possibly medium works better..

    t216 astronomy, had annexed madrid ( missed oxford timing) teched guilds and engineering delaying navigation to t222 upgraded 7-8 galleas by t240 had all but the last two

    t264 1190AD DV Oda controls the world
