yay me. *pats himself on the back.

I've buggered up and got myself two Regent games instead of a Regent and a Warlord tho.

After a couple of weeks playing good ole Diablo II again, I am now playing Total War: Medieval II. Don't know when i'll get back to Civ...

Well, maybe you could send in a 90k histographic?


I'm sorry I couldn't help myself, sorry.

I'm sorry; that's my fault. (In fact both times IIRC)

I was trying to get the #1 date for SS but using a small map rather than a standard one as the current best times use. The end result was that I didn't beat killercane but I did knock your SS game from its number 1 slot.

I'll try not to do it again. Otherwise you might take revenge...:trouble:


Oh, and have you noticed that Marsden is becoming pretty good at those 100K finishes. maybe he'll start running a masterclass soon.

Yeah, I noticed you did it last time, but I already got revenge for that one :D. This time I actually lost 2 small #1 slots in the same update - Marsden took one from me too.

Feel free to do it again - if my #1 slots are weak, then somebody should improve them :cheers:. I'll just have to keep working to get them back (or take someone else's :satan:).

EDIT - I thought Marsden took the small sid conquest this update, but it is not marked as new. I guess he took that before, and I just didn't notice :trouble:.

That was about a year ago. When you weren't actively sending in HoF games. Please don't hurt me. :hide: I need a coward smiley here, the hide one isn't craven enough.

No, I'm not. I just got lucky.

well, luck is often a part of a great date. But skill is important, too.

The best 20K date is 1130 - it has, I think, 7 SGL's. That's a great deal of luck... but there is a lot of skill in that game, too, in research, picking opponents, management, etc.

Can you write up what you did in it?

I agree. Congratulations keldr and Ozymandius! It is always good to see new faces and new Quartermasters. That puts the HOF up to 34 Quartermasters! If memory serves, that is quite an increase since I became a Quartermaster. I remember only 26 back then... I think. We're talking around a (8/26=)31% increase. :high5:
