    I am, in no way, going to claim that I can beat ridiculous maps of this type that I have generated, but in any case, this should be a good challenge, in my opinion, so I thought I would share with the community. This is dedicated to my friends of old, who may or may no longer be active in the forums.

    I'd say that only the bravest and the most skilled players with a lot of tolerance and patience should attempt this ridiculous, evil, and unfair map. Prepared to be humbled, because the map is gonna SUCK big time!

    I am hoping that with enough practice through my A-Z games, eventually I may be able to beat this particular map in the distant future.

    Anyway, does anyone want to take a shot at it?

    First, our heroic leader of the day!

    The unfair settings of this game:

    And the starting position:

    Aside from the joke of cooking such a map like this, I am hoping that this can be educational as well. There are so many brilliant players here... just by reading what they have to say, I know that they know what they are talking about and they are confident in their knowledge of the game. I am hoping for somewhat decent participation.

    Initial save is attached. If you are gonna attempt it, please keep in mind that this is only a game, and that the most important thing when it comes to playing games is to always have fun with it! Good luck! ^_^

    EDIT: I added starting save for Immortal and Emperor levels.

    What a luxurious start! ;)
    We got phants, we are financial... I suppose we are not isolated...
    We even got a few peaks to see further into the fog.
    What could possibly go wrong I wonder :hmm:

    Thanks for the new map Gwaja :goodjob:

    I am neither a friend of old nor a most skilled player but I will try it out nonetheless!

    Wow, this map truly is horrific! Even on immortal this would be one heck of a challenge!

    10 turns in...

    I see, is'nt it a map you (Gwaja) have already published back in the days, the one where Mylene went settler wandering for fun and stuff?

    Jeez! Great fun in perspective :clap:

    Nope. It is a different one. Very different. This time, even the most creative settler wandering will not help you at all. ^_^

    God damn it. I promised myself to NOT take part of any competitions in this forum, but this sounds too much fun.

    Can we somehow restrict loading as well?

    Hwacha-Phant seems like the obvious ploy. I'm guessing things go horribly wrong before we can even get to Construction though.

    You need to play xOTM. No reloading.

    Oh boy.... Well it's 925 BC and I'm still alive!! :banana:

    First off I think this illustrates well the atmosphere of the map:
    Spoiler :
    I hope you like the name...


    I have 4 poor cities and a poor tech rate. I'm in pain. This is painful. Why bother. :crazyeye: :lol:

    Why don't you just load, open the WB and save? Should work the same I reckon

    Oh gosh. Tried a little bit.

    Spoiler :
    I was trying not to reload during game, but I restarted when game ****ed up (read my strategy didnt work out).
    As I see by now, Ai manages somehow to build Oracle extremely early. 2500 ... 1800 bc on different tries.

    I will probably quit trying oracle and try first time to Seraiel´s favourite "elepult". No horses is so sexy, I dont find right words to describe it... Havent played till ironworking yet, I hope there will be Iron. Will there?:)
