ANNOUNCEMENT: Hall of Fame Challenge Series XVII
By lymond at 2016-01-18 13:13
ImageThe Hall of Fame Team would like to welcome new players, and welcome back old vets, to the Seventeenth running of the Civfanatics Civ IV Hall of Fame Challenge Series.

HOF Challenge XVI was a successful and competitive installment of the series, won by neilmeister. HOF Challenge XVII is a collection of 10 games with a time limit of 5 months to complete them (from 10th January to 10th June 2016). The games are designed to be more defined than the usual gauntlet games and challenging in a different way than a general Hall of Fame game, yet far from impossible to complete.

The winner will be the person who finishes the most games and collects the most points along the way (10 for 1st in each individual game, down to 1 for 10th). Progress results for all games can be found here. There are individual threads for each game in the Challenge Series forum so head on over and check it out.

For those unfamiliar with the CFC Hall of Fame (HOF), we encourage you to try the challenge as a way of introducing yourself to the HOF. The Challenge series is just one feature of the HOF. A Gauntlet series of games is run monthly. In addition you can simply submit any of your games to the HOF. All valid games are recorded to a database and ranked under various categories. The HOF enables you to compare your progress against other HOFers over all time or simply track your own progress. In other words, the HOF is as competitive as you want it to be.

In addition, the CFC HOF offers two ongoing challenge/achievements called the Quatromasters and Elite Quatromasters which can be found here. All valid game submissions to the HOF apply toward your progress of these long-term achievements. Are you up for the challenge!

All of the games need to be played using version 3 of the BUFFY mod (BUFFY-3.19.003 or BUFFY-3.19.004b), found here. Standard Hall of Fame Rules apply to all games.

PolyCast Episode 246: "Swip It Good"
By DanQ at 2016-01-16 10:16
Image Hybrid powered. The two-hundred-and-forty-sixth episode of PolyCast, "Swip It Good", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, Stephanie "Makahlua", Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and "MadDjinn". It carries a runtime of 59m59s.

The summary of topics is as follows:

- 01m57s | News
A Civilization Revolution 2 Plus delay announcement causes more consternation over its timing than its message, Civilization V lands back in a Steam top-sales year ranking (06m42s) and a patch for Civilization: Beyond Earth -- Rising Tide cleans up some of the expansion's release messes (12m25s).
- 15m57s | Research Lab
Morphing from playing one civilization to another over the course of a given game leads to tie-ins to not one, but two, discussions over the course of the show's most previous season.
- 21m15s | Miscellaneous
An extension of a conversation about a survey from Civilization publisher 2K Games further examines the lifecycle of a game in the series (recorded for Episode 243).
- 29m25s | Open Mic
Fittingly an extended dialogue over the show's 2015 Christmas Special prompts a similar treatment on-air; then, on the promise of more to follow on the next episode, highlights from both the PolyCast and TurnCast 2015 Listener Feedback Surveys.

- Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
Broken nothing and double taking.
