    From the Civ V HoF rules, it says that all games must start in the Ancient Era. Why is that?

    I understand that this gauntlet requires Ancient Era starts, but why must other (non-gauntlet) games be Ancient Era starts to be included in the CFC Civ V HoF?

    Will this rule also apply to CFC Civ VI HoF? I have played hundreds of Civ IV HoF games and those with non-Ancient Era starts have been in general more fun to play than the Ancient Era games (though usually not as competitive).

    Of course, Civ V and Civ VI are hugely different from Civ IV; Civ V and Civ VI games started from the Ancient Era can probably be completed many times faster than Civ IV Ancient Era games. Perhaps, that is what makes this rule tolerable for Civ V.

    I'm not sure of the reasons but have asked in the Staff Forum. Anyone else have views on this?

    I agre with Sun Tzu Wu. HoF V was annoying in that the only reason for a non-competitive player to upload a game was to increase someone else's standing.
