Top of the Chart


Atheist Edge : And when he saw the breadth of his domain, Alexander wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer.

Michael Angelo : From the ashes of a million tribes rises powerful autocratic nations vying for complete control of the world.

René Larsen : Naval warfaring vikings ...stuck on the middle of the island :(

Nicholas Sheavils : 42 other civs : exist Greece : it's free real estate

Bacon Snot : And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer.

Jake Ragoo : “And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain he wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer”

arbussman : The year is 2033 and sadly, our Crossbowmen are no match for the Greek army

the prince of all saiyans .Vegeta : and then their economy crashed and everyone starved to death

White Shadow : It wasn't too surprising that the civs on the edges of the map would do well, its much easier land to defend. But what was surprising is that I thought the first civ to get a major advantage would win against the rest, but this kept me guessing until the tidal wave at the very end.

Stephen Kology : When Constantinople and Istanbul exist on the same map.

Godwana : the whitewalkers from the north easily won, as expected.^^

Jaska Mäkynen : Considering the ones starting from the corners will have less enemies around, this was inevitable.

MegaDigie : Istanbul and Constantinople on the same map *thinking*

Blake Miller : If you ran this 1000 times, I wonder if a statistically significant winner would emerge.

Gilbals : Well, he wasn't Alexander the Peaceful

My Place Is A Mess : "And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept for there were no more worlds to conquer."

Lil Penpusher : >America gets killed off by Korea >"Heh. Ironic."

Armok: God of Blood : The starts in the corners had the advantage of only being able to be attacked from three sides instead of six.

Casper Meewisse : Who would have guessed that the countries in the corners would survive the longest

John Connor : Witcher 3 music?

Patrik Husník : Civs starting in the corner have huge advantage

Ricewarrior01 : Your Troops are too close to our borders!

El Pantruca : Year 1950 and still mostly crossbows lol

TC IronBear : Dumbest AI move in the game? At the end it looks like Attila helped the Greeks to attack Assur. Attila's only hope at that point would have been to ally with Assur or attack Greece while it was busy with Assur.

Mava Greek : Греция, которая смогла.

S Ulltra : Poor Poland. Even in simulation.

Ben Hyle : Kinda surprised by the Zulu's lack of expansion, but not shocked by Alexander being Alexander.

Максим Кощеев : Starting in corner is OP, not balanced

Gabriel Gomar : Yeah, this only made me want to play the witcher again...

Jacob prudent : Edge civs win because they can more easily defend.

George Washington : Sad USA is not on its own continent just watching the bloodshed and meddling with city states.

ghoohg551 : I feel like the corners had an advantage.

Anthony De Vellis : Alexander the Great conquers the known world again!

Max Iniguez : Constantinople went through like 4-5 civs, wait that sounds familiar.

JonatasMonte : I can only imagine the amount of denounces.....

Evenstar : I welcome our Greek overlords

Shelby Swartz : And then soon after Alexander died without an heir so the madness for a ruler began all over again! Isn't history fun?

Türk Milliyetçisi : İstanbul and Constantinople in the same map but on different places

GruntMasher117 : +AIBattle *Hears Witcher music* “Ahh I see you’re a man of culture”

illidan193 : If the water gives 1 food like any coastal tiles, it gives significant advantage to every civilization at the corner. If you wanted it more balanced, you should have made exterior tiles ice or mountains

R0b0Squid : By the end it just looked like a game of Plague Inc and Greece was the virus.

Martin Fleetwood : I like how they re-build the Great Wall

Petey Graffiti : You should make the map loop, the corner cities have a big advantage because there's only one front line to defend.

namelessone : Wow. Ottomans tooks vienna and greek tooks istanbul.

Walrus : In the end, the empires that made the final four were the ones that originated in the four corners with no enemy on two sides. Even if attempting this on a round world map to level the playing field, the civs that start on the top and bottom would still have the advantage of one protected side. Interesting, though. I bet this could be done a thousand times and get a thousand different results.

Alexan Fung : starting at corners really get some advantages

Ross Metcalf : This seems to demonstrate that starting on the edge of the map- with fewer neighbors- or preferably in a corner, is ideal. Perhaps the reason Greece won is their starting location, and it also looks like they had gunpowder units earlier than the other major players.

Sander Mesila : This comes to show how faulty the AI is, they built settlers.

sherif elsayed : Countries that are in the corner have an advantage over someone in the middle because they can defend more easily.

Mr.gamer04 : Nice choice of music
