drew, I assume you're responding to alex here but let me attempt a rebuttal. The disconnect I see is that you equate a Pangea as the hardest map setting, but more than one continent is automatically easier. Whereas you can set up the game so that your starting continent is = Pangea, and you just double (or triple) that same landmass with more continents. Anything that can be hard about playing on a Pangea can be equally hard with several Pangea sized continents. For example, imagine playing that Deity K-Mod game you posted with a second landmass full of civs equal to the one you started on.
