Progress report: Turn 636 on the way to a score victory on Epic

2021.09.26 11:57 lightningfootjones Progress report: Turn 636 on the way to a score victory on Epic

So a while back I mentioned that I was playing on epic with all victory conditions on and aiming for a score victory as a bit of a challenge run. Some of you seemed pretty interested so here’s a couple thoughts! Update: a lot of thoughts. This became pretty long, just like my playthrough 😬😭 Go ahead and skip to the tl;dr, don’t blame you at all.
The Playthrough is still on track, I’m finding it to be a very interesting challenge actually because I have to both stop others from winning via science or diplomacy, and also stop myself from accidentally winning via culture or diplomacy. I recommend it for people who want a new experience if you are OK with putting up with the problems below.
On science I am constantly shifting rocket scientist spies all over the world sabotaging spaceports, which means I can’t have any allies unless I’m absolutely sure they can’t possibly complete the exoplanet project. War and nukes are last resort options, but I’m not trying to become the domineering overlord who basically just won on domination but didn’t take the capitals. I want to complete the game true to my style, with friends and trade. The spies are absolutely vital in a way that they have never been before. England has captured one of my spies and refuses to trade her back, and despite what I said above I am considering a war just to force Victoria to give her back. Wont do it as long as i still have enough spies to keep a lid on everybody. Four left, should be enough. Should have taken owls of Minerva though 🤦🏼‍♂️
Diplomacy I am purposely avoiding winning votes, down voting every international competition since I don’t want any more points out there than necessary, and I have to watch the world like a hawk for anybody trying to build the Statue of Liberty. Nobody has it yet, and there are about four players who could win, or get too close to winning, just by building it. I have it one turn from completion at all times just in case but I don’t want to finish it myself either, that will take me to like 19 and then if somebody else gets up to 18 I won’t be able to vote them down on victory points without gaining a point myself and if I let them vote me down on points, they will get a point just for that and win the game if they win any other vote at all. So on diplomacy the name of the game is to keep everyone from building the statue and keep everyone at about 17 or below. There are two more world Congress meetings left and if I’m careful I think I’ll make it.
Culture is a little simpler but it’s also scary, I almost screwed it up and became unable to stop myself from winning. I actually had to pull back a war just for that reason, and then give them a bunch of works of art as well. But that side of it seems to be stable now, I did have to rethink my open borders and trade agreements but it’s handled.
Pros: warfare is actually pretty cool in the far future! It never really happens in a normal playthrough, sometimes the player gets to far future technology but it never gets to where everybody has it. Enemies come at you with giant death robots. Jet fighters strike at your units. You pass by a lake thinking nothing of it and an entire submarine Armada starts firing missiles from the lake. The AI is still not great but I do feel like it’s good enough to feel like a challenge. Phoenicia Counterattacked me with two giant death robots and two machine gun armies at once, and it took everything I had to put them down. That has never happened in one of my games before, ever. I am about to have my first ever level 7 unit. I don’t even know if you get era score for that but I’m going to find out! More generally, I just feel like I have had to engage with game mechanics that I have been able to ignore in every previous game. Definitely a different experience and I’m glad I’ve done it.
Cons: oh my good God is this game taking forever! A one hour play session will get me through about three turns and it will crash once or twice. I have taken to saving twice per turn. the turn begins, I do all the stuff that I might be in danger of forgetting first, then save. Then I do all the other moves necessary, save again, then hit end turn. It crashes if you click on units too fast. It crashes while the AI is thinking. It crashes whenever the hell it wants. Twice it has actually crashed right as I attempted to save. I am not finding it to be the boring “hit end turn and wait simulator” that others have complained about, but it is a marathon of patience that I wouldn’t blame anybody for getting sick of.
Tl;dr Playing score victory on epic is most definitely not for everybody but I have found it really interesting and I’m going to be real proud if I can make it without screwing it up or throw my Xbox out the window after a crash. I don’t recommend everybody try it, but recommend everybody think about trying it

2021.09.26 11:57 I-C-U-92 Did I just see Shiey?

Hi to all Shiey's keen followers. I just recently started watching his videos as youtube recommended his abondend ghostown videos to me and I quickly got hooked. The other day I was buying groceries late in the evening on the Croatian coast and I could swear I saw Shiey in the supermarket. This guy was tall, had undercut and same lenght of the hair as Shiey, dressed in black, in the company of two other guys and he noticed I was staring or trying to figure out if it was him (I am shortsighted) but the only thing that would make me 100% sure it was Shiey would be him wearing his black mask, this guy was instead wearing medical light blue mask which made me doubt it was him.
Now my question for the keen followers would be, does anyone know where Shiey is at at the moment? Is it possible that I saw him at the supermarket or am I just becoming too obsessed with his channel? It will totally not change anything knowing it was/was not him but it just keeps bothering me and I really wish to know if I am losing my mind
Anyways, I love Shieys videos and love this sub :)
