Starting the timer

Yea this is why I wanted to start the time on Begin Journey. This will basically wipe the any% leaderboards, but I don't think it is that big of a deal.

I'd like to hear more from other runners and moderators before we change anything.

We will probably change it to, Start time on "Begin Journey" and end time on "Last click before victory screen"

Ahah you are a genius ! ^^ But yeah, of course this rules of "time starts at first city founding" is absurd and I think it's better to change for "Begin Journey"

Congrats on your WR ;)

Perhaps it could be 'at first action'? this would allow you to take a look at what resources you have before you start and plan your first move accordingly but also prevent the issues with 'at founding of city' issues.

What are all the actions that would be considered "starting"? I've thought of a few.

City founding Moving a unit Selecting a research

Are there any others you can think of?
