I miss seeing you around Manpanzee but I can understand that HOF is more fun for you. I would say it would not matter about the cheating or reloading. In this game if a player wishes to cheat they will figure out ways to do it even if someone is checking the files. I am sure that there is a way to bend the rules as well and not get caught. I tried once to mess about with HOF but I was honestly confused lol and I did not like the idea of re-rolling maps to find the perfect one to get my fast turn time finish. However, we all have to do what we enjoy. Some players say that SP is nothing compared to MP and I would disagree since I have over 2000 hrs of MP and about 6500 hrs of SP. You have just as many options to manipulate games in your favor on MP as you do in SP and when players say that an SP strategy is not good because it does not work in MP is too far for me. They are completely two different animals and different strategies as well. Can you make your MP strategies work on SP? Of course because any strategy can work pretty much in SP and only certain strategies will work in MP. The best strategy of all in MP is to play up the Diplo and become good friends with players that you will play with over and over so you can become more of a "team" instead of playing a true FFA game. This is why I prefer 1v1 when I play MP which brings no collusion into play. I personally never reload and I try to not replay maps because that is too much abuse for me but other than that I will abuse the AI to no end when I play which most players do not respect. When I first heard of players reloading games years ago I could not believe that was allowed in the game. Civ was the first video game of many video games where I was able to actually reload a turn because of any reason I wanted and I did not like that option was allowed in the game. Edit: Oh I just realized you played this game out but I guess you took a break from recent DCLs anyways I am updating the Leaderboards so you are in the top ten now for SV!
