    As I'm looking foward to play the first GOTM for CIV 4: I'm wondering how many people will play the first GOTM for CIV4.

    I think we will be more than 100 !!!!!!

    What do you think ?

    I can't wait for the patch so it can start. I'm not a big fan of the multiplayer stuff as I don't particularly like the early rush/harrassment strats that are the most effective ways to win in those. I'm playing a couple SG's, but GOTM and the old civ3 tournament were always my favorite things to do with civ3. In the meantime when not playing my SG's I've been playing single player games just for the hell of it but it just isn't as fun when you have no one to share them with and no one to compare your game with.

    What victory condition will people be going for? I think many people will choose peaceful victories this time around since waging cross-continental wars is extremely difficult in civ4 from what I've seen. The galleons don't hold enough units and don't move fast enough, while the tech pace is faster than civ3 tech pace. So I think I could do well if I went with a military victory since there wouldn't be as much competition. But since I like competition and want to be able to compare my game with a lot of people I'm going to go for a peaceful game also. I'm still unsure if it will be diplomatic or space race.

    Cultural and space race are the only victories that I am skilled at, so those are probably what I will stick with. But I am practicing the art of war, so maybe I will add some other victories to my repertoire. For some reason I have never been good at prolonged military campaigns. I've not been able to get the hang of the diplomatic victories in Civ4 either, I should probably give some attention to that also.

    I intend to play.

    I was a late starter with Civ III and have worked my way to around Monarch level. Played 3 COTMs with only one win but my play has definately been improving. The Deity COTM put me off the last one.

    Talk of Civ IV GOTM is what made me decide to buy Civ IV, so I can get in at ground level rather than wait 6 months and then struggle again.

    Looking forward to it!

    I'll be playing. Probably well down the ranks as I don't pay enough attention to details to maximise my score, mostly I'm here to see how other's strategies compare to my own so I can improve my game.

    I don't know how many G/COTM's I've played but been unable to finish. Too many SG's. Anyway, I'll give this one a try and hopefully be able to finish it. Hopefully.

    I took a break from Civ 3 GOTMs to play WoW, but now that my Civ 4 addiction has replaced my WoW addiction, I'll be back for this one, if the patch comes out in my lifetime :) .

    I did attempt a come back in the last COTM, but a deity level game is perhaps not the best place to restart a game you've not played for a few months.

    I should be there, assuming work and other commitments (like getting ready to quit job and move to a new country) don't interrupt too much....
