Research MVP and medal?
In game 139, British Commonwealth. I solved a maze for 1500 science and researched another 600+ science into Iron Crafting (so 2000+ in total, I was shown as the MVP for this tech). When I went for my lunch today, the tech was still under research. When I came back, however, the tech is done (blue checkmark) but MVP is a guy who only did 210 science. Obviously I didn't get the medal, and I can't even find where my maze bonus goes.
In terms of where the maze bonus goes, generally it goes to anyone in your civ who's currently researching the same tech as you. You lose all maze moves when you discover a tech.
