Well done Salomo, my serious effort that got corrupted was a century later. 1500's is very good, as it was really hard to be very fast on a large map with this leader and speed!

Thanks :)

In my second submission I was just inches away from finishing 14XX, but Bismark(!) had become so big that i couldn't hurry any settlers to fill the last 5 or 6 squares I needed without dropping below the population limit. In the end i won by trading away anything i could turn into money and putting the culture slider on max.

:D Cheers :D

Well, 2 new Emperor EQMs to be exact.
The 'highly active' shulec screeched up from nowhere to claim the #5 spot, somewhat ahead of me. And I'd been keeping my eye on Mr. Bill, who I had expected to complete this time around (and beat me), only to get this surprise instead.

But I'm glad to have reached the finishing line :D

:eek: Is that, by any chance, the highest score of all time, rather than just this update?!
Amazing!
And thoroughly worth the :eek: 152 hours :eek: you put into it!

Thanks for noticing! And congrats to you too!

I will also acknowledge ChrisFromLux who completed the QM challenge at #21.

Now, I can no longer delay the leap to immortal.:D

That is a lot of good hard work. Nice game!

Truth be told, that was not the highest score submitted this update. I posted a 2.1 million score game. This wasn't exactly how I'd hoped it would be announced :(. However, it was rejected for some unknown, trivial reason. I didn't want to make too big a deal about it, but I thought the staff might give it a 2nd look. Maybe ask me for the save in question. I'm not going to press them for it (other than laying down a little guilt in this post :mischief:) I understand they're volunteering their time, but if it were me, I'd at least examine closer some of the more outstanding games like TheHawk's 152 hour game if it had been flagged. I would want that game in the HoF. I'd spend the 15 minutes to validate the 152 hour effort.

On the bright side, I am glad that TheHawk's 1.8 million score did not go unnoticed. Hawk, How upset would you have been to see that your 1.8 didn't make the high score of this update? Now imagine how upset you'd be if your game had been rejected. It's a horrible feeling.

Believe me, I tried! I've been losing a ton of games lately just trying to fill those last few spots. :mad: Hopefully I'll have them done by the next update. And congrats! :goodjob:

I know how it is!
I started this journey in early January. Somewhere in the summer I didn't submit a victory for over a month - trying endlessly to get a Space Colony with unsuitable leaders and conditions.
Looking at your score, I'm ready to drop down the rankings as soon as you finish. (Of course, I could spend my time improving a few of my own scores now :))

AgedOne and The-Hawk - we could certainly have used your obvious skills in SGOTM 10.
:thanx:
Ah, but there have been many with talent who have appeared in your team's colours over the years. Question is, who's to mold them into one single awesome unit?

Is it just my machine, or is the Statistics --> Game Counts tab not displaying the table? Even though I've been negligent in my Civ playing, I still want to post the stats on the group's progress and I use that tab to do my calculations.

My condolence, Wastin. :(
It's very hard work and huge time to play such game... It's near the theoretical maximum of BtS (I think 2.5-3M) I'll never find time for it...

It works fine for me.

It is working but it is taking 20-30 second to come back. With almost 750 players the list is a bit long. ;)
