5v5 Ironman Teamer PPP vs. NBK & friends, 2nd half

December 20, 2009 3 comments

*UPDATE* (21st Dec 09)

Shortly after the game resumed, [PPP] updated their massive power lead consisting of Knights and Currasiers into Russian Cossacks and razed an overall of eight cities of [NBK] (for power lead see check graph seen in the beginning of the video). From there on the already existing technological advantage brought them both Mining and Sushi Inc., also grabbing the happiness wonders Hollywood, Rock’n’Roll and Broadway together with the Eiffel Tower, losing the less important Pentagon same turn. In the end [PPP]’s 79 cities gave them ranks 1,2 and 3 in production together with a technological lead, while the game wasn´t far away from Space Race getting started.

Here a video which starts at the beginning of the Cossack attack. In order to watch it in full mode, you need to go here.
Vodpod videos no longer available.

As for the author, I was gifting money all game to keep my team mates at 100% research, myself not building any research enhancing buildings and staying at 100% money rate – if the game had continued I would have build libraries, observatories and universities within 3-4 turns into almost all cities and turned up my research, while jaegga would have kept on saving money. Till that point we had basically only three people teching, I saved and used about 20000 gold for various upgrades and building buys, not counting of course the per-turn gold I was gifiting. I actually had just started switching to technology, when they conceeded, meaning there was quite some potential for increasing our research rate further.

Here a screenshot of my gold city 😛 (click it to enlarge) – notice that Sushi isn´t spread in all our cities, yet.:

The game is going into its deciding phase now. [NBK] just lost a culture bombed city at the front of Moineau with HolyRome to a slow stack that didn´t move on, but retreated after the city kill.
