I was looking at the global achievement stats on Steam and it is interesting that less than 40% of players have won the game. I guess quite a lot of players gave up due to the early bugs or just got bored waiting to the end. The stats per difficulty level are as follows: Settler or higher - 39.3% Chieftain or higher - 34.3% Warlord or higher - 31.7% Prince or higher - 28.3% King or higher - 13.6% Emperor or higher - 8.0% Immortal or higher - 5.4% Deity - 4.5% The biggest drop off seems to be from Prince to King. For victory type the stats are as follows: Culture - 21.5% Science - 19.5% Domination - 18.3% Faith - 8.7% Faith is the only one I haven't done yet myself. Not sure if it is harder or players just get bored. Looking at the % winning with each civ the stats are as follows: Rome - 10.8% Germany - 8.7% America - 8.0% China - 7.3% Japan - 6.8% Sumeria - 6.3% Egypt - 6.3% Russia - 6.3% England - 5.8% France - 5.7% Scythia - 5.2% Kongo - 5.0% Gorgo - 4.7% Aztec - 4.7% Pericles - 4.4% Arabia - 4.3% Norway - 3.9% Brazil - 3.7% India - 3.5% Spain - 3.2% Australia - 2.8% Poland - 1.9% Macedon - 1.7% Nubia - 1.4% Persia - 1.3% Indonesia - 0.6% Khmer - 0.5% Interesting to see that Faith based civs tend to be down the bottom. Also perceived weaker civs like Norway. France and Egypt are two that are higher up the list than I would have thought.
