    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: Diplomacy (though all victory conditions must be enabled)
    • Difficulty: Prince
    • Map Size: Standard
    • Map Type: Fractal
    • Speed: Standard
    • Leader: Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar II)
    • Opponents: Any
    • Version: SV8
    • Date: 6th July to 1st August 2018
    The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.

    Shouldn't this be Brave New World? It says GnK on the gauntlet page on the HoF site too.

    Any guesses on good achievable times?
    Also, anyone willing to discuss approaches?

    A good goal for Diplo games is T180. You'd need a T132 Printing Press for that if I remember correctly.
    It's easier to get a very good time with the warlike approach as long as you have some AIs on your starting landmass.

    Yea I was thinking something similar. Just not sure whether to start taking cities asap or only later after NC etc. Also not sure whether to go just 4-city Tradition with it or rather Trad/Liberty combo and a bit more cities.

    4-city Trad is very strong for Diplo, you don't really need the wide empire beakers to reach Atomic era fast. Depends on the map though, I'd guess 6-7 cities is optimal if the land allows for that.

    Lol so I gave it a first try and realized that after those 2 years away from Civ5, I am completely clueless after about first 100 turns. Didn't even remember the mechanics of a diplo win properly, thought Atomic Era is enough for UN etc.

    Anyway, as a first easy benchmark to beat, here are some T235 victory screenshots:
