    Oh geez, not again! ;)

    You are like Sirian. You tend to see all the obscure choices, but miss some obvious ones. Your ability to see new strategies and adapt are your strengths.

    Oh, and I want 'AU courses' on that list that had GOTM etc. so I don't have to vote N/A! :gripe:

    "You are like Arathorn. I don't know what to say. You are just awesome in every aspect of the game, but you have your achilles' heel in something that I can't name"

    What's your next quiz going to be Tomoyo? :p

    Hehe. Sirian is one of those I had in my "sig shrine" for a while, so sure.

    Speaking of Arathorn and Sirian, does anything know what became of their rivalry?

    "You are like Bamspeedy. You excel at game mechanics and micromanagement. Your overall game knowledge is your strength."

    Given I'm convinced I could win Beyond Sid a lot 'easier' then ever exceeding a score of 8000, this is no surpirse...

    Excellent choices, nice quiz for insiders! :goodjob:

    Hm, I never saw much difference between Sirian's and Arathorn's playing styles; both are pretty puristic.

    Sirian was crazier than Arathorn.

    I am like Sirian, but do not know him at all.

    I personally love cracker's opening play article and I was a huge fan of Ision's reviews. :)

    Longasc: Sirian is the embodiment of the ability to be five times smaller than the nearest civ, attack both neighbouring civs, and then win a diplomatic victory rather than sign a peace treaty after kicking serious butt. He also does insane calculations, nitpicks, informs people of what weed they have smoked, and made his own mod, "Sirian's Tweaks", to rectify the game.

    You are like Sirpleb or Aeson. You are the milk-master. Your ability to be patient with micromanagement and milking are your strengths.

    Funny, I always considered micromanaging boring, the only two times I have won on emperor so far has been with rather heavy warmongering... As a description of my style as a chess-player, it is deadly accurate, though.
    And milk-master. :hmm: I am tempted to come with some x-rated comment... :mischief:

    Sounds better than to be a bureaucrat of micromanagement. ;)

    You are like Charis. You can conquer an AI with just a horseman and a warrior. Your daring tactics are your strengths.

    More quizzes needed!

    Wow, I feel so honoured to be compared to the great 404 Error.

    Edit: Now that the site is working it says I'm a Sirian. One thing off about that though: I don't miss the obvious choices, it's just that they arren't nearly as fun as one of my crazy schemes!

    How do you define a legendary civer? as i said b4 the quiz needs more questions. also can you state the characteristics of each legendary civer.

    The legendary civers on the poll are:

    Sirian - The original somewhat crazy genius. Plays puristicly.
    Charis - The puller out of hats. Plays with much gut.
    Aeson/Sirpleb (grouped together because of their similar styles) - Score.
    Bamspeedy - The calculator guy. Plays with more analysis than the others (except maybe Sirian)
    Arathorn - The modern puristic player. Similar to Sirian, but not as crazy.
