It is AZN_Paradox (Aztec), NomadZ_magicmel (Goths), RPC_DarkLinkX (Franks), CC_Honochio (Japan) versus dedkrikit (Spain), GNon42 (Turks), IClan_Flamingo (Huns), and me...Thunder (Byzantines).
The blind random map turns out to be Ghost Lake. Boht of our strong Gunppwder civilizations (dedkrikit and GNono42) are in the pocket for our team. magicmel and Honochio get the pocket spots for the enemy.
The game starts off with some really slow flushes by me on DarkLinkX and by Paradox on Flamingo. Both flushees get help from allies, but DarkLinkX folds his tent pretty quick and moves his town, leaving me with two or three lovely gold piles.
Fighting continues on my front into the Castle Age as magicmel joins the fighting in DarkLinkX's war torn town, and in early Imperial huge battles errupt on both sides of the map, involving most of the players!
