    You can turn off random events, but this is for weaklings.

    I don't think I have ever done economic.

    How do you prevent those energy reserve crashes? that is really annoying. I don't think I've ever gotten over 40,000 energy credits accumulated.

    Conquest. Sure, I don't get really high percentage wins, but the thrill of having Planet's (almost) entire human population under my command really makes me feel warm inside.

    Barring that, Diplomatic.

    I most always play Gaians. I ususaly win by Transendance, But play to win by Conquest.

    It just depends on how that particular game is going.

    I guess in single player I "prefer" diplomatic victory since thats the way I end almost all these games. I usually can't be bothered to finish off my conquest of the AI so once I am 3 times as big as everyone else combined.

    If playing out obviously won games wasn't so tedious I would likely transcend more often.

    In multiplayer, ANY victory is a good victory. The most frequent method is capitulation whne one player has established dominance so I guess thats a diplomatic victory as well. I have only transcended once in a multiplayer game for a co-op victory with another player. It was actually a game where all 4 human players survived and never fought a single battle ( the two alliances were far apart-- we established a good tech lead and a good buffer zone of conquered AI bases . .. the other alliance could never attack anything important with any real chance of succeeding and we decided to transcend instead of getting into a slugfest)

    I like Transcendence, if only because I choose when the game ends and can be a hardcore builder to my hearts content. Sure, I could conquer the last city I let the AI keep, but by that stage a Transcend victory is much more fulfilling than being overly aggressive.

    I usually prefer the Transcendence, but in this last game I was playing against an angry Aki-Zeta with +2 RESEARCH agains my -2 RESEARCH, so she was discovering all the technologies and I was behind her, so I started increasing my energy reserves and finally bought everything she and everyone else build for 83000 credits. In the end the malcontents won and I felt envy in Morgan´s eyes

    Hmmm, can't say that I've ever seen this movie. I may just give Guardian H'mneee a run in my next SP. Wonder how she'll do with my modified alphax.txt....

    looks like I'll be playing an alien faction next. I have yet to do that.

    The usurpers look quite powerful, almost too powerful.

    transcendence.

    But the game I played as the believers I did conquest. I didn't feel like waiting around all the way to transcendence.

    Transcendance is nice, but if I can ever do it, economic is _really_ satisfying. Just the fact that you had that much money.....

    That being said, i've only won by economic victory once, and it was on specialist level. By the point that you're able to put it into action, you could _probably_ just win diplomatically, and without the 20-turn wait.
