    Immortal. Though it was a GotM with a fairly beefed up start - gold, iron, stone, plenty of food and some room to expand too.

    Emperor for a standard sized map and settings.

    I may have completed a quecha rush on a duel sized terra map at Deity, but that really shouldn't count, IMO.

    Technically I won once at Monarch with a Duel Quechea Rush. Other than that, Noble. The quechea rush was fun for one time but I'd rather try to win with regular rules on Prince than see how high I can get the quechea rush.

    I've won at Emperor level...but winning there is more work than play for me, so I stick to Prince/Monarch, which I find far more comfortable.

    Woohoo, got my 2nd emperor win just now (first in BtS) with my Pericles game. First ever diplomatic win as well. Unfortunately it will be rock bottom of that category (Epic speed/standard size/diplomatic) in the HOF. 1878AD. I'm quite pleased though ;)

    My other emperor win was a cheesy praet rush on small continents with Augustus, that was a bit of a fiddle since the continent I started on was big enough for domination. That was warlords not BtS though, warlords seems harder to me (you just get boxed in too fast by the REXing AI).

    I won the obligatory deity cheesefest, and managed to score a few Immortal victories (narrow and lucky though)

    The highest level I can consistently win (barring unlucky barbarian uprisings) is monarch and I'm clawing my way up towards coping with Emperor.

    I've got a pretty good handle on Noble and while I haven't played on Prince yet, I think I could win, albeit with a Financial civ and a bit of luck.

    Deity. Best game was a space race victory in 1832 (Standard size, continents map).

    Don't take this poll too seriously. More Deity players found their way to the forums than the other way round.

    Personally I just finished the Viking scenario at Immortal difficulty with 60 turns to spare. First time I did it at Emperor with just 20 turns to spare. Maybe I will try Deity sometime... when I can pull myself from multiplayer.

    I can win consistantly on Prince. Right now I'm working on my first Monarch win. My first attempt didn't go so well; everyone had their first settler out a bit earlier than I was expecting. :cry:

    After Noble, going up each difficulty is seriously hard. I can win Monarch games with an advanced start, but no advanced start usually means no religion = no culture win :(


    I still havnt won Civ 4 in any way other then Culture, I'm a Wonder whore.

    I think the highest difficulty I've ever beaten is Warlord and I've started playing Civ games since I was 8-ish (since Civ II). Atleast I'm way better then my friends who started playing Civ recently. :)

    I won my first Monarch game yesterday (large hemispheres, marathon, space race win playing the Spanish). So that's what I picked.
