A Sid difficulty epic game has been won. Here is the link to the succession game where it took place. A fantastic read on many many levels!
They didn't deliberately use the bug and they suffered other handicaps such as the serious corruption drawbacks of 1.0. (Other things may also get easier in future patches such as amount of resources.)Originally posted by akots
The win was an apparent consequence of the gpt bug. Otherwise, the game could have turned out differently.
At the end of the game, they were earning enough gold off of every conquered Ottoman city to do a tech steal -- or close to it. That's the consequence spoken of. To say that they won because of this is ludicrous, though. If the bug hadn't been there, they never would have been so far behind on techs that they needed to perform that many steals to pull it off.Originally posted by Bamspeedy
Did they even use the gpt bug to their advantage?
