    Pretty much. I think the Brits were getting close to victory so the French got a bit reckless with their relic. Basic problem of the alliance, whoever gets Jerusalem wins. I did not even know where points were as I was just fighting off the infidels.

    The way it was described to me by players I used to play with at another site was that
    England fights Denmark
    France fights Cordovia
    Germany Fights Rus
    Abbisids fights Byzantines

    The first 3 do it for the Armies, The Abbs do it for promotions and expansion to the South shore of the Black Sea, The Byzantines receives promotions and hardens Constantinople and secures the Mediterranean(optional because of gold)

    When the Christians are done with their wars they fight Constantinople but it is a tough fight because it is basically 100% of the Byz production defending it, that is why there is a narrow land bridge beside it, so all 3 have a space to hit it from.

    This raises Byz points very close to victory and becomes a race of jealous Christians to take Jerusalem.

    I was told it was nearly impossible for the Christians to win because the Abbs are to powerful and the Christians know only one of them can win. So it becomes a free for all on the final stretch and it is here that the abbs win it most of the time even if is a High level AI.

    What I thought was going to happen was Germany was going to fight me, if he had I would have crumbled easily threw most of the game, but he stayed a true friendly neighbor and virtually gave me every tech. having been able to research probably 4 or 5 techs of my own.

    I don't know how each civ was set up but I can tell you from beginning to end the Byz were always facing corruption, the bigger it grew the more corrupt it became. The buildings that negate corruption were not on the Byz tech tree and these techs were given or traded to me by Germany, if not it couldn't support enough units to defend critical cities, let alone of all them :)

    I enjoyed playing it the way I did and how Diplomacy was done here by everyone.
    Thanks again for playing.

    I'll make some time and update the beginning of our thread and hopefully point to some highlights thew out it.

    Final testing on "The Guardian"s Napoleonic Wars II - Global, It would be a perfect 5 player game.
    It is simular to the (8 MP Napoleonic Europe) but MUCH bigger in scope. The only reason I haven't started it is because it has a bug that won't allow more than 2 human players but we are working on it.

    I will admit I considered taking a bite out of Byzantine. Especially while waiting for the rest of you to show up. Probably the right move - would have gotten some productive space. Didn't seem right and could have been weakening as I might always be in battle. That and I said I would not.

    Hey,

    The Holy Germanic Empire was looking for our 1st battles against the Arabs to be in Byzantine lands. I had even had a worker group building roads for a very long time.

    @Eclipse I'll need you to send me the individual files like the game you sent me before.
