    Tremendous job and write-up, Rhothy!! I have NEVER achieved a dom victory that early.

    Well done!

    I finished it. I see you did a good job on keeping them in line. No one had even 700 points.

    I was sick on Thursday and stayed home from work, so I had the entire day to finish the game up and write this up.

    I have read through part 6 so far. I like the style you used for the AAR.

    Ok I am editing this to update my book marker. Part 9 finished.
    Finished 18, one more pass should do it.

    It is...!

    Great Job Rhoth. Unless someone comes up with a better AAR, you are sure gonna get my vote for the Shakespeare Award!

    BTW, if people are interested in playing that game, you can find the MZO Boot Camp here. It's a monthly game based mostly on learning that hands out awards for best palyed games, best AAR, best defeat strongest economy and a bunch of other stuff....

    Come take a look!

    I love it. Damn fine stuff, Rhothy. Nothing beats that ultra-early autoraze of what would otherwise be a powerhouse city.

    MZO Boot Camp V – Part 23

    And last but not least, the save on the turn before my victory. Just press enter and let it go through a few build queues before the last city radius expands.

    MZO Boot Camp V – Part 22

    And a look back at my forces the turn before victory. As you can see I never really built more defenders. This was a completely offensive game. Throughout the game I did whatever I could to set up favorable matchups with my attackers taking out their attackers first. The only place it didn’t really work was when I was taking the two cities in China, and that was mainly because they had a horde of units to throw at me. If they hadn’t thrown all those units at me at the same time (and I didn’t suffer some bad RNG such as a simple archer taking my cavalry down to one hp before it retreated) then the Chinese offensive would have been much smoother and I wouldn’t have had to give them peace so quickly. If you take a look at my Immortals and remember one of my earlier military advisor posts, you’ll see that I only lost 17 Immortals from the time I started my war on Carthage. I never built another Immortal, but they were verrrry useful throughout. Not only were they great when I was defending China’s treacherous attack right before my CavalRumble™ came online, using them to take Bursa and freeing up my cavalry to take out two of the remaining Ottoman cities and get close to the last saved me a few turns of play.

    MZO Boot Camp V – Part 21

    The score at the end…5442. The power graph looks much the same as the score graph.
