    I'm not the boss, but both of these things seem very much like things that are specifically allowed, and neither of them give shields or gold for nothing, which is what the forbidden exploits do. I think they are fine.

    Any other active players have thoughts on the matter before I officially yay or nay?

    This is not a new thing, or I am totally misinterpreting what the request is about. I think it was very openly discussed by several Top-Players, and in most detail maybe by Spoonwood, if I recall correctly.

    We are not talking about "gold out of nothing"-deals here, as they are disallowed. Like double-negative gpt-deals, following the same pattern however.

    We are talking about "something for, in the end, nothing"-deals. You can gain WH, techs, gold... for nothing in return. No nice concept, and I really dislike it, but to the best of my memory it was heavily discussed and officially checked - and allowed.

    Now I thought it more.. It should be allowed.

    Yeah, I was thinking this wasn't really anything fresh, so yes, it does fit as allowed under current rules.

    I believe that's legal under the rule that you cited. Come to think of it, I'm sure it is. I think I've used that almost every single time I've started a war on Sid level. I made a note to Stoertebeker back in 2011:

    "2. I think I've used the disconnecting thing to start every war in this game."

    Yeah, I've done that several times also. Theoretically, it would come as possible to capture all of the cities without suffering any sort of movement penalty, but I've never done that as it seemed to require too many risks. But, I do recall several times walking onto the AIs territory via the RoP and them having them declare on me. No loss to reputation, since the AIs declare on the human player.

    The save below has evidence of me actually doing what Kuningas suggests. In that save you can observe that I have units in Russian territory. I also have an RoP signed with them. They declare on me the next turn via some trade route disconnect, my RoP reputation stayed in tact, and the war began. I guess I could show another save with their cities getting captured in 400 AD or 410 AD (maybe I waited a turn for some reason... that sounds doubtful, but it's not impossible), but that can also get checked via the 2050 save using CrPViewer if anyone actually cares to do so.

    I would believe that Drazek has used the same tactic also.

    At the very least, both of my 80+ HoF games use that tactic, so there already exist games in the HoF using such.

    I've thought more about what our "Supreme Leader" superslug stated there, back in Post #810, and, I agree it makes sense to have The Rules Frozen For Eternity. For one reason, if you change The Rules now, how many Games that have been accepted into the HOF would then become ineligible?.......And, who would even know they had commited a "Rule Breach" or 'fess up if they did know!? :)

    I couldn't find a link to the actual hall of fame, and also had a hard time finding it on google. I eventually found it by guessing the URL.

    http://hof.civfanatics.net/civ3

    [2nd EDIT] fixed link

    Now I have it bookmarked, but a link would be appreciated.

    Looks like the link text and the link itself are different. The text says .net/civ3 while the link is for .net.civ3
