My friend (who was 3 turns away from beating a Deity game once) said that he thinks the only possible way to beat Deity is through military - by taking resources from other players. Because if you were to try and win through any other victory type alone, you would not be able to accumulate enough science/culture/gold to do so on your own. He made this statement about the Vanilla version, although if it were true, I don't why it wouldn't apply to the DLC as well. Has anyone ever beaten Deity, and if so, what type of victory did you get? If you got military victory, do you think it would be possible to get different victory types? (of course if you eliminated all civs except the weakest, and then won science, that would be different, but you still FOCUSED on military) Bonus question for Deity veterans: IS it still advisable to go early National College on Deity, or would that be delaying military too long?
