Finished my first HoF game in years. Tiny settler marathon map. Previous record used Gandhi for a 460 AD space win. I just submitted an Asoka game. 440 AD. Waiting for acceptance. Strategy called for no academy. Period. Never! Oxford was late too. Around the time of Mining Inc. I over settled too many cities and gave away a university city after Oxford. Then settled more cities for corporate resources. What's the point of universities? Even if only 4 are required for Oxford? Game was sloppy and better a result can be achieved. First GPs were an engineer and prophet. Paya and Parthenon were used. National epic was late. Popped borders with the Parthenon and later gave that city away ... This ain't rocket science. Outside the box. Shred the box.
