The Civilization IV Hall of Fame has been updated. 274 games were accepted since the previous update.
Congratulations to Ironhead for the highest Firaxis score of the update with a Standard Deity Domination game for 341169 points. Alan_of_Dale was the most active player during this update, submitting 15 games.

The Quattromaster's List has a new member. Kudos to drepsed for achieving the Hall of Fame's highest honor!

Per the BTS patches, new HOF Mods are available for Vanilla and Warlords and are required for the newest Gauntlets. G-Major 14 focuses Deity/Standard/Cultural, inspired by a recent thread of our Cultural enthusiasts and experts. For those seeking less stressful fare (or if you just hate Incans and Romans) G-Minor 24 is Small/Warlord/Conquest.

G-Major 13 has concluded. Eight participants were able to submit Emperor level Domination wins, playing as the Koreans. The-Hawk finished fastest in 815 AD, with Moonsinger and Miraculix finishing a few centuries later. G-Minor 23 finished today, with the focus on Settler/Duel/Spaceship. As hoped, submissions were high, with no less than 64 players getting in a win. Dynamic fared better than anyone, launching in 860 AD. Grey Cardinal and AAA placed not too far behind on a list spread across 13 centuries, with a boggling number of positions sorted by score tiebreaker.

It do not quite correct, as it seems to me. Dynamic and GC results is splitted by one moves only - it looks like a random value. Both finished before 900AD!!! Outstanding games - congrats!

As I see, Moonsinger do not leave us :D, but prefer military branch of gauntlets.

We're all insane to spend any time at all on an activity as pointless an unproductive as this computer game.
:thumbsdown: :wow: It's hardly unproductive. Civilization is chess on crack, it's mental exercise at it's finest keeping minds healthy and strong.

Having a woman in your life is against Hall of Fame rules. Get a divorce attorney.

is that one of them 'unwritten' rules? because I've read the entire rules page twice and didn't see it on there :p

No, it's like one of them 'it just is' rules - like "Swimming with an open wound in shark-infested waters is prohibited." The rule enforces itself. :p

Anyway, thanks for running the updates, guys. Now I'll see whether I can make the "HoF main page" for Noble.

Wow, I've been on Civfanatics for a while, active in HOF and sometimes GOTM. Even won a couple of Gauntlets ;). Yet here is a post from a moderator with 14K posts who've I've never even heard of before!

:lol: I think this shows I need to get around a little more and explore the forums. Yet another sign of the breadth of Civfanatics and the diverse interests of the people who subscribe. Really cool!

You know, I was just thinking the opposite. I've been running the HOF (and competing in one before that) for a number of years, and I've not once seen a nonHOF moderator participating here until just recently. I haven't seen DaveShack posting, but he has been submitting.

So, many thanks to him and Igloo for being here.

A word of advice, you really don't want to visit his neck of the woods. It's called OT. [shudder]

Yes, it is nice seeing all the new faces here at the HOF. It seems like the recent Minor Gauntlets are really drawing interest.

Great job everyone! :clap:

I *am* the woman in my life :)

I did try to get my husband to play. Once. The look of total bewilderment on his face was more than I could bear :rolleyes:

95% of my posts are in OT - as Methos says, it can be a scary place.

And I'm happy to be here, though it actually wasn't the gauntlets that lured me in as much as looking for a new challenge, and since my going beyond singleplayer Prince level isn't very likely, I figured doing some serious Noble level AI-kicking for HoF entry would be a reasonable one. :)
