once i realized insane didn't give random starting locations i realized it required less luck, but still haven't managed to beat it yet :P
and level 3 and crazy i don't really want to beat, although europe i enjoyed so will prolly play many times again :P
Level 1: Won in 6 turns
Level 2: Won in 13 turns
Level 3: Won in 21 turns
Europe: Won in 19 turns
Crazy: Won in 21 turns
Insane: Won in 29 turns
I actually just improved my Crazy level score...it was at 32 and when i beat insane I said to myself that Crazy shouldn't take more, so I redid it.
I'm actually kind of mad at myself, I could have got Crazy in 20 turns VERY easily (i made a mistake right at the last move). But I found some mistakes and I think that 18 is very well possible so i will be shooting for that in the future.
For the Insane challenge, this was my first complete run at the challenge and there are lots of places for improvement and that turn count can go down. I found that I had a lot of troops left over in places, and one of my abandons was useless and the AI went the other direction and cost me about 4-5 turns. I'll probably try this one later on and see how well I do.
I know these aren't the best times ever but I know they are pretty good from what other people are posting.
Maybe Randy can post the Overall Best Records so that people can shoot for those turn counts.
Level 2: mor won in 11 turns.
Level 3: Dr. Kabamf won in 16 turns.
Europe Challenge: mor won in 15 turns.
Crazy Challenge: NiCoCo won in 19 turns.
Insane Challenge: The Impaller and mor have each won in 24 turns.
I'm pretty surprised that only Insane challenge has a tie for the #1 slot. Very impressive feats!
