    I was looking at my score page to see how latest game ranked. I noticed that my highest score is as Japan and I have three wins as Japan in my top ten. Here are my top ten highest scoring games:

    1 Japan
    2 Korea
    3 Mongolia
    4 Mongolia
    5 Japan
    6 Khmer
    7 France
    8 Japan
    9 Persia
    10 Holy Rome

    So I am curious, for those who play random leaders, what everyone else’s top ten are. Please post the civs of your top ten wins. I don’t care what the actual scores are, that’s relative anyway and the subject for another thread.

    More land overall, and more land earlier means higher scores, so these lists may turn out to be best civs for war-mongering.

    I don't really like the scoring system because it favors war heavily. All my top scores are domination.
    Top 3 : Justinian, Caesar and Shaka.

    Not sure of top ten but top is Sumeria with ~450k which I pulled from no where.

    On the computer I am using nowdays I only have 3 wins so far and top is a 70k Netherlands win

    I don't know about my top 10, but I'll post the top 3. They're incidently my most proudest!

    1st - Churchill. (Flat out domination game from Red-coats. After this, he became my favorite English Leader to play.)
    2nd - Asoka. (Played resently at HFC-Cup4. It conatined my first try and succession at a diplomatic win! And first try at prince!)
    3rd - Saladin. (I tried an Espoinage Economy and won a domination victory! It was the most fun I'd had since the above 2.)

    If playing purely for score with a random leader but not map, probably any leader will do as long as you play a big-and-small map and found sushi. Insane scores can be had. Financial leaders may have an edge. My favorite is Elizabeth when playing for score.

    I have Mongolia 4 times in my top ten (shocking, keshik rushes make for fast wins).

    The rest is mostly filled out by ORG leaders - Napoleon, Asoka twice, Zara. All strong warmongers, obviously. Liz is kind of a weird one, but she's in there - she's a great leader, but she usually gets humming in the mid to late game, so my typical games with her end with later chain cap or diplomation, which aren't as easy to end up with really high scores. I remember the game with her that was in there though - I had a great bureau cap with gold, so she flew to lib-steel and claimed the whole landmass lightning fast with cannons & redcoats.

    Darius - Diety , great rexing rifle stomp down
    Ragnar- Monarch GOTM smashing with berserkers.
    Abraham lincoln - Monarch GOTM cross contient Knight treb rifle cannon invasion :)
    Lizzy - Immortal cultural win

    They are actually all my wins with this install hehe I tend not to finish most the games i play on diety or immortal. I get to the point that im winning then quit hehe. I enjoy overcoming the leaders not being the leader. Altho sailing around world with move 6 galleons loaded with berserkers was hella fun :D

    1.) Rome
    2.) Germany - Frederick
    3.) Spain
    4.) China - Qin Shi Huang -- (If I remember correctly, this was a cho-ko-nu rush).
    5.) Byzantium
    6.) India - Gandhi
    7.) Khmer
    8.) Ottoman - Mehmed
    9.) America - Lincoln
    10.) Holy Roman Empire

    I was expecting Rome, Persia, and England to be dominating these lists.
