    Crap! I was gunning for this slot. Of course, boudica on random settings won't have a slight chance to beat that...wait...classical start...hmm...:think:

    WastinTime always thwarting me as usual...ha!

    Interesting new composition of winners...where are the ones I used to know. All fled...

    New to my perspective when I was very active HoF player.
    Before TMIT arrival in challenger series V where he attracted a huge bunch of new players here amongst the competitors.
    Not it is bad, it is great to see more activities, but...where's the people I used to know.
    Before, I may say it was a more restrict circle with the usual players like

    -shulec
    -AgedOne
    -cas
    -Kaitzilla
    -AAA (Beccnoa)
    -sometimes Jesusin
    -seldom STW
    -WastinTime
    -The Hawk
    -etc.

    Even the reclusive players who never say a word on the HoF subforum have disappeared...

    Still, perhaps this G-Minor was a rehashing one they experienced in the far past, lowering the interest...:dunno:

    BTW, nice win, ParadigmShiftered Lymond...:cool:

    Noooo, don't knock out my Classical start. Rock of Ages is such a pain to get good scores.

    Unusual behaviour=mocking me? :)

    Anyways, I think by definition ancient start games wipe every later starts whatever the date, is that right?

    By now, I feel a pathetic 1840 AD coming as space colony victory...perhaps I should have stop putting hammers in warring, but I couldn't control myself. This would be my first real deity win. :woohoo: unless something goes wrong as the space race is tight (the RNG gave me a nice couple of peacemongers).

    Hey, what about me? I am still the second in quattromasters overall and 4th in gauntlet. Actually I haven't played a gauntlet for a long, because there aren't any which can boost my gauntlet score (at quattromasters) It's just not fair, why there aren't any huge deity majors or at least a huge monarch minor one?

    I didn't know you wanted to be acknowledged by me...:p
    It is not I am WastinTime, Shulec or the likes...

    Still, I am sorry to have put you out the list: since I have no aim yet to the (E)quattromaster, I tend to forgot those who actively work to be number one there.

    The last time I saw you in a gauntlet was cultural game with Hatty on Oasis trying to kick Jesusin out...:mischief:

    Of course, you are a very competent player, don't you remember a comment of mine in that gauntlet. I knew your reputation before seeing you.

    Misotu was another I could've mentioned, but she was somehow gone when I arrived into the scene.
    EDIT: I also forgot Cabert.

    Use your position to motivate Denniz/Ozbenno to make such gauntlet. Shulec did make a proposition on a certain AW immortal gauntlet, which was accepted.

    Yes, it was really long ago, I wonder that you still remember. I didn't mind that I couldn 't re
    ach 1st position since I played with raging barbs and I still got good scores.

    I am not sure I could force the HoF staff to anything since I haven't been very active recently... But if any of them shows interest, I think an industrial huge deity conquest can be good fun.

    And Tachy, your avatar is really cool with that evil look, is that from a cartoon or a comic? It reminds me to V like Vendetta.

    Oh fantastic. This list gives all of those on/off HoF players something to be offended by, so here goes my very best outrage.....

    Its an affront to me that I am not on the list! :mad: I've lost at least 2 or 3 gauntlets. Is it just me or does the mad smiley lose something when it has a santa hat?
    Good luck with this one Tachy! :) from somebody that you used to know

    I agree with Habitus, whenever a SGOTM is finishing, it can sometimes act like a huge black hole, sucking in all activity from around it.

    Like it :goodjob:

    And I'm also affronted I wasn't included in the elite gauntlet participants, I have won 1 in the last 5 years you know :lol:

    Actually, I'm pretty close to Bram, Miraculix, cas, bcool, FiveAces and neilmeister in the gaunlet rankings, quantity over quality has something to say for it ;)

    But I see I'm one behind AgedOne by one spot, I see another challenge (on my behalf) coming on :crazyeye:

    Argh! Stop it. Stop it.
    Don't you know that I've forgotten how to play Civ properly!?

    Actually, thanks! This can be my new year's resolution. Remember how to play Civ again. (and lose 14lb)

    Um, yeah. Looks like I offended quite a lot people. I won't come up in the future with any list (especially done in a pottered manner) of that kind. Looks kind of elitist or something...

    *while listening* *denying everything*

    Am I targeted...yes I am! :)

    Not my kind of music, but I am starting to like it, especially when the pitch comes higher. I had to get the lyrics, my ears don't fit english as usual. :crazyeye:

    Come on Youtube repeat, work for once for godsake!

    Its my kids favourite song at the moment, they are always bugging me to watch the video clip on the computer. The lyrics fit perfectly with the situation.... tongue-in-cheek of course. :)
