    Here are the results of the BOTM 34 game. Impressive score and win dates. Not often you see a cultural victory (Duckweed) beat a conquest victory (babybluepants), although I heard rumors of players who whacked their keyboard when they accidentally reached domination. :badcomp: Close fight between srad and lexad too :cool:

    Congrats to the winners, and to all who participated. It didn't turn out as difficult as I intended. Loosing my edge probably.

    Summary of Medal Winners:

    Duckweed: 1455 AD Cultural Victory, 403,076 points.

    srad: 1285 AD Domination Victory, 363,197 points.

    Lexad: 1275 AD Domination Victory, 338,941 points.


    Fastest Finish Award Winners:

    babybluepants: 1550 AD Conquest Victory, 276,673 points.

    Earthling: 1695 AD Diplomatic Victory, 165,908 points.

    hhhawk: 1810 AD Spaceship Victory, 157,924 points.

    shulec: 1878 AD Domination Victory, 156,710 points.


    Other Award Winners:

    Meister Maggi: 1844 AD Diplomatic Victory, 141,554 points.

    mash11: 1852 AD Conquest Victory, 123,517 points.

    smoreau2: 1917 AD Domination Victory, 71,077 points.

    Mitchum: 1896 AD Spaceship Victory, 44,964 points.

    lymond: 1865 AD Cultural Victory, 32,851 points.

    evil_spock: 1928 AD Spaceship Loss, 6,122 points.

    Saranac: 1030 AD Conquest Loss, 293 points.

    Congrats to all the winners, I am looking forward to trying this one again when I might have a chance at winning. Thanks to Saranac for submitting a score lower then mine, I thought it was another red ambulance for me again.

    Bugger I was hoping to have time to finish this one.
    I was on track for my first immortal win, so I will finish the game when I have a chance even though I can't submit.

    Congratulations to the winners!

    There were several losses submitted and some that probably weren't. Great job on winning this game!!

    Congrats to the medal and award winners. I've never seen a cultural victory take the gold. Very nice, Duckweed! :goodjob:

    Thanks, guys. I'm happy with the result of my 2nd culture attempt.

    Lexad and Jesusin showed me a better victory date using traditional strategy in BOTM31. However that's my fresh try and there's lots to be improved. I still believe using Sushi could be a better strategy of pursuing culture victory. I would be happy to see Jesusin show me a better date again.:lol:

    Hopefully more player could try this strategy in the future.:)

    Here's where everyone settled:


    The Small Print:
    The numbers by each player's name indicate the turn settled on (starting turn is 0). Players are colour coded by game class (challenger=red, adventurer=blue). Symbols indicate victory condition, if there's no symbol then the player either retired or was defeated. The yellow border indicates the land that was visible at the start of the game.

    Bugger, I forgot to submit. Doesn't matter, I got nailed going for an axe rush.

    Congratulations to all and especially to Duckweed with another outstanding result (like the 'gold' space race some month ago)!
    Will try culture for score milking next time! Conquest, ähm Domination seems not suitable anymore :D

    :nono:, score milking is just a side effect.;) All right, I confess that I'm also for the medal:blush:, but I tried my best for the fastest culture. The earliest possible date could be ~1400AD if I stop the war earlier.

    Congrats to the winners! :goodjob:

    As always, many thanks to the staff! :goodjob: :goodjob:

    Highest scoring retirement ... where's my award? :lol:

    Actually, a tin watch (a humiliation of the gold watch ...) would make a great award for highest scoring retirement ;)

    (Just like we need tin cup for 4th place in SGOTMs)

    Not enough time to play this out until Portugal's space win (I did need SOME sleep), but I was second in score at games end. Starting to get consistently competitive with the AI on immortal, so hopefully soon I can start winning some of them.

    Congrats to the winners. Submitted a resignation on this one - was a little too aggressive on my axe rush. After two consecutive losses, maybe I can win on Noble in BOTM35 :p

    I've got quite a bit too married to compete this month. :eek:

    Have you tried taking your 500BC save and finishing it with a standard stop-research-at-Liberalism strategy?
