Why are the game categories inconsistent? I get having different categories for different patches, but some are tiny maps and some are small. It's very inconsistent and off-putting. Like the rule-sets seem extremely arbitrary. The 2.0.4 rule-set specifies 6 AI empires and a lot of additional rules, whereas the 1.8 rule-set has less and no additional empires.

This is at fault of the previous owner of the game. I will work on making a better categories.

I think we should specify constant rules about game settings for all versions. And game version should be a categoty, becouse on 1.9 you can beat any challenge twice as fast as 2.2, so you'll be forced to play on old version and its not fun. So version shouldn't be an option of run, but should be a categoty i think.

Categories have been re-arranged accordingly. Please re-submit any runs!

Ok, categories are fine, but now we need to define rules. Ironman mode only isn't enough, you'll be forced you to play vs 1 AI and bless RNG for good spawn. I think we need to set 3-5 AI, it'll reduce random factor.
IMO: Difficulty should be described too, but it's discusable.
UPD: Presetting AI empires should be prohibited too.

I agree with Scallion we need to define the rules, and I like what he says the rules should be. I did my run based off the rule set he followed in his run because I think his run had a good set of rules to follow.
