    You’ve heard the all the arguments, read the 9,000 threads devoted to them, and spent an entire week playing one of each just to see for yourself, but now we really will know: which is better, the CE or SE??

    [cue dramatic music]

    Rivals: 6
    Difficulty: Monarch
    Map: Lakes (I think)
    Size: Standard
    Speed: Normal
    Victory: All Enabled, but you need to win via space.
    Variant Rules: No barbarians.

    You must run either a straight cottage or specialist economy (which means NO cottages), which means:
    CE players:
    * Can never *hire* specialists (only citizens), but free GPs, wonder-based ones are okay, as are using them for whatever ends. However, the SoL and Mercantilism, which *hires* a specialist for free are out. ("if you can't choose it, you can use it")
    SE players:
    * Can never cottage, and must raze captured ones as well.

    Dramatis Personae:
    Players will be judged by total commerce output (GNP) as well as most beakers per city, most beakers per civ, and most beakers per team.

    Again, this is on my 'to-do' list for tonight, so I will put a game together and try to WB the save as well ~

    Hi Pholk,

    seeing how groups aren't even, would you mind another player in the SE roster ? going by the name of Augustus Caesar

    Part 1 - 2000 BC

    Part 2 - 375 BC

    Part 3 - 800 AD

    Reserved for the one with the building that gives +1 food.

    I played a few games as Lincoln, and I must say he's awesome for the SE. But I also played a few Surya games, and I'll comment on them eventually.

    Pholk,

    Seeing myself out of my RL troubles (I'm rather a happy optimistic fellow :D) pretty soon, can you still sign me as CE Pacal ?
    I'll catch up as soon as possible (might miss a few first deadlines though)

    Thanks
    :cheers:

    okay you'se jerks ~ can't sign up during the 8000 posts discussing the game, want to sign up now ~ *grumble, grumble*

    okay, you're all in ~ I'll take a CE spot to even things up, but if someone else wants in, they're more than welcome.

    in other news, oz showed me what i need to do to edit the save files, and it's going to take a little longer than i thought. I'm going to try and work on these all through today and tomorrow, and hope to have everything done by friday at the latest.

    and all the saves will be in a new post ~
