SRR, wont let me add you to list.
Got 4 games in with Blades....
First game I was Indians and Blades was the Mongols. I move and pick up two friendlies to then come across the dang Aztecs. Well after almost losinge a vet WA to them I retreat to come back and take their cap. I see that Blades have settled two squares away from where I started. I have hbr but I felt like I wouldn't go messing with him and since I knew they layout of the map I built a galley and put my HA and WA on it looking for other civs. I have my 100g and find the Americans. Take them out and friendly tells me whre 7cog is at. I build 4 settlers and settle them all at 6 tech. I'm doing massibly good in science. Blades expanding a bit and making armies so I go straight for Navi.
With that I was back in business, preparing a attack on Blades. He has his 100g and found KT. Don't know where the KT but I find out a few turns later it takes out island cities(2 to be 3xact). I try to regain but failing although I have GA. I CONVERT one my cites back and got a decent amount of sized attackforce to go. I take my cites back but then Grizz rushes GW. I had angorwat too so I go into demo to stop GW and Blades then quit.
Second game I was Japs vs Blades Japs and I get a galley drop on Aztec and soon after get Blades too.
To be continued.
Next two vs icrazy.
Japan v japan. He settles close to me with a barb between us, I have balanced he has no trees. He steps next to my cap just as my first warrior is ready. He attacks the barb getting injured so I kill his warrior. Double heal and the barb grows again, so two flags. I move around to scout layout not attacking barb. Nearly get a walk in but he moves back in cap. He then takes a flag from the barb. Next turn I win button race for last flag.
Icrazy accuses me of barb stealing? I took down last flag, thats not stealing, is it?
China v china I have a warrior army on a hill outside his empty cap at 3500.
3-1 to me overall vs icrazy.
Icrazy- barb stealing is when you take reward without a battle.
EDIT. You also de-friend me over that?

And just to add, in the japan game, my then vet warrior army took his cap.
If that's deemed unfair by forum I will replay it.
Yeah that is not barb stealing ICrazy! He got the barb before you! If you were upgrading and officially attacked the last flag for the reward and Flash stole the reward without never have fighting that last flag... THATS STEALING!
Third game between me and Grizz was my Chinese vs his Indians.
GG that had some chances of either one of us winning but there was one winner. I settle next to a barb with 3 trees and had picked up a friendly. I notice the barb's flag gone up so that mean Grizz is near. I get two warriors out to take down barb and get a caravan in which I send to the newly captured city of Athen's by the Indians. He goes into demo for a while and I don't see any real dangers to come so I get my 100g settler and put it on a boat to settle on a northern island while my HA goes hunting for rabbits.
I came across the russians and kill them. Then a friendly tells me that Angor Wat was next door to them on a island but I couldn't get it because my peace between the Indians ended. Grizz goes into anarchy and I move a warrior back into my cap and next turn Grizz is at 6 tech and in fundy... I was scared then. I rush a archer just in time for his HA to attack instead of warrior. But after about 3 turns I couldn't keep up rushing a archer before he attacks... surprised was able to 3 times. I could have sent my HA over there but I was sure I would be setup plus he had pikemen. I decide to go up to North America where the Americans reside. They have a Great Person spreading culture around the land... I knew he could do the same for me if I just persuaded him with a spy. I steal the gp but Indians having culture themselves made my hopes of flipping China back something down the line to do.
Grizz shows up at Russia with that HA and it starts to attack. I next turn form a AA to defend the HA and it dies... surprised he didn't retreat. I then take over the Americans due to fundy from AW. I ignorantly made settlers from 3 cities but never switched into republic until AFTER! I settle 2 of them after 6 tech and from there the game was easy street. I flip China back into my hands once Grizz go back into Demo and then I find SoC after getting my first gp from my culture. I get a GL placed in China, GS and GE from SoC and then Monarchy for another GS. Skied past Grizz in tech and pretty much there was nothing Grizz could do, he concedes the game to me.
Fourth Game I was Mongols and Grizz was the Chinese.
I knew this game was over from the beginning when I didn't find a friendly so I decided to give up as I wasn't going to waste time vs Grizz's China and not having a good start.
Got my first game in with Mawpawk... My Indians vs his Mongols. It started off decent for me gettin my 100g by 2900bc and then encountered the English. I bulid HA and take them out. Build boat to sail past Mawpawks chokepoint to see the Japs. Try to take them out but Mawpawk come from behind kill my HA with a HA. He takes out Japs but I got knights due to SoC. I bring KA over and it kills HA and then take Kyoto. I bring the KA down south to overrun a legion and archer. Mawpawk attacks with vet LA with its 9 attack to my 12def... It loses and I win.
Hey all. sorry I haven't been on much at the weekend as I was duly celebrating hitting the big 3-0 and watching England at the Euros. If anyone sees me on tonight then get me in one of your chat rooms and I'll try and get some games in.
Mawpawk just gave me a hiding like nothing else. 3-0 so far.
First two, not much I could do. My mongols start close to his indians and I lose ha at beijing.
Next my indians dont see a barb in ten turns while his chinese have 350 gold!!!
Next was great. My island start chinese take 7c and I thought I was on easy street but then get notified he has taken all other caps. Oh-oh!
Must have been about 40 knight armies built. Mawpawk with better tactics wins out in the end. Gg.
Wow. Nice job Mawpawk with the upset.
Mawpawk beat me our last 3 games. I was expecting to definitely win my Chinese game as I had all caps but then Mawpawk flips one with his school of confucious and then he brings 2 LA's, AA and infil KT that took down Delhi. The other games was my Mongols vs his Chinese... easy defeat and then my Japs who were on a long peninsula from land, first barb hbr and his Indians takes out Arabs plus Russians.
that was a huge an intense game flash, i dont think a mongol game could get more balanced vs china, dam gave me a mega workout.
If there is someone who signed up but dont want to play - I would love to participate.
i originally wanted 10 players so yes there is definitely a spot for you prey, and maniac are you 100% keen? and i crazy hope your misunderstanding with flash about barb glitching is sorted and you still want 2 carry on?

Yes, It really was a rare epic game in every way. No one has ever given me a beating like that, especially Mongol v china! And yes you would have taken my cap eventually for a true domination victory. You almost got it about 25 turns earlier and I had to sell cruiser fleet for a road and some units to save it.
Funny that our other great game was top v bottom in france/Zulu where all 5 caps decided it too.
This is only my second tournament and already 3 of the games are in my top 5 ever. Two against you and the great spain v india against duke.
My biggest problem is tactics, you, REM, Grizz etc are all just very aware and to be honest, outclass me. Ranked play is not a patch on the games here. I can win 90% + easily in ranked but barely keep my head above water in the tournaments.
Icrazy, I can only echo mawpawk. Hope you haven't given up. I know you feel like I stole that barb from you but it was 100% legitimate play.
Really quick 4 games vs Flash. Took 20 min maybe?
Mongols V.S. his Japan
He had over 100g and HBR before 3000, I tried to pull a multi and win 6-7.5 but to no avail.
India V.S India. I got 1 friendly for HBR and another for a spy. I settle next to 2 pop barb and my spy sees his warrior and a boat at 3600. He sits in my trees and I rush a horsemen, killing a warrior he had coming up. I move and attack barb, making it 1 pop. Next turn it goes to 2 and he has enough to rush a WA and kill me. He said he didn't get any friendlies which is truly amazing, guess those AI's are getting bold....
My China V.S. his Mongols. I start on Island so we do restart. On restart we both get friendlies but I see his settlers from hill, I try to get walk in but he moves warrior back in cap but I win 1-1.5.
My Japan V.S. his China. I start on peninsula and see a barb. I name river and sit on hill while the barb goes to 2 pop at 3900. He got friendly and a walk in on the Zulu. I run getting 2 more friendlies for 25g a piece. I settle with 1 tree trying to get a walk in the Aztecs at 3200, meanwhile he gets enough gold for 4+ horsemen and techs HBR. I go for a 3 pop barb but made a mistake not waiting till the end of the turn and he takes it with a single horse even though he is over 10 tiles away from it. Aztecs get BW somehow and its game over when his HA shows up.
I go 3-1 in 4 very quick games with denied. All decided by the start.
Japan v mongols I get the gold to fend off his close start.
India v india. I settle in place with oak for some quick warriors to spoil his hbr start.
Mongol v china. He wins a warrior against my cap in like 3700.
China v japan. I take Zulu in 3700 for a flying start while he still walks.
A walk in on the Aztecs at 3200 after meeting? That takes some doing! ;-)
0-2 with prey.
I immediately realise I've walked wrong way while his chinese take two caps. Four athens with a hill but they had pike army before 2000. Give in.
Mongol mirror. I start way south. Find Zulu but prey has a hill on other end of them to kill my horse army.
My Mongols V.S Prey China
He got 7cog at 3400.
My Japan V.S. Prey Mongols
Lost to prey 6-4.5, 4.5-4.5, 4.5-3. Game over
The game city collapsed me, wasn't preys fault but somehow he took out 3 archers with one HA. Didn't matter, I had already lost after losing all those battles earlier...
U played very well denied!!!

Beat me 4 games in a row. His Mongols beat my Japs... Basically where I started his 25g would have killed anyone but possibly Aztec or America. His Japs beat my Mongols by him getting to Arabs before me. His Chinese beat my Indians by him getting republic from romans and expanding to 15 cities while my attack was inferior. Then his indians beat my Chinese before they could settle by taking Kyoto and getting 7cog fast!
I have a full friends list flashbang, ill boot someone to make room for you.
BTW... That was Liam who got me 4 games.
Hmm, was wondering if u did a write up of the games you and me are gonna play:-)

Thanks for games Multi. Lady luck was defo on my side but I played every single game passively. Sometimes you just have to wait a few seconds when moving your settler to make sure you don't run out of moves like you did in our first game. I settled on the friendly because you had moved in next to it.
The only decent game we got in was the China vs Indian one where I got Rome and you got Athens. China & Republic that early is lethal. You don't even have to rush settlers just get about 3 out every five turns working trees/fish. Fair play for you to giving it a go though with legion armies but yeah I was way too far ahead.
The Japan Mongol game you missed Arabs by a turn after getting a presume two friendlies to get money that fast for warriors. If I had not named a tile on the way to a barb north I would of never got a second warrior in Tripoli....
I lose the japan mirror with mawpawk, badly.
Start close and I get the lucky 3-3 early but then lose 4.5-2.5 at his cap. I have 2 barbs while he has the map and takes all ai. Ready to quit I find 7c so give it a go, spam cities but undefended, while I see him working trees, inevitable that he comes in fundy and wipes me out. Gg
my gosh, flash i didnt c u get 7cog!! no wonder you hit republic early! you didnt lose 4.5 to 2.5 at my cap ,you retreated, if you had let that animation or combat simuli roll you would have taken my cap with 1 defender, but after that it was a cool bully buzz 4 me. and i still say you r a contentendr 2 never take lightly
