I just watched the replay, so here's my recap. The teams were:
-- Absolute Zer0 -- (me), [DT]Tyr222, OurTerra.com, [_]-Hiroge, and Dark Eyed Junco
[_]-Greyfox, Varona, Black Sword Command, and two smurfs using the exact same name, |1st| FAGOLAS ELF (a mockery of |1st| LEGOLAS ELF).
Team captains for the player draft were [DT]Tyr222 and one of the Elf smurfs.
I think the primary deciding factor was when OurTerra knocked out Greyfox early in the game, allowing him to build an economy. Other notable events were the early-game survival of Hiroge (with help from my starbases), suicide spot Tyr's loss of homeworld and subsequent migration, and the huge battles fought in the area between Dark Eyed Junco and Black Sword Command, which involved 6 or 7 players.
The game ended when Varona minidumped, but if you look at the stats, it was pretty much over anyway since the Tyr team led by 36 planets to 24 and had a credit lead of 486 to 195 (with my end-of-game income of 211 beating that of the entire Elf team). Metal income was 37 (Team Tyr) to 25 (Team Elf) and crystal was 21 (Team Tyr) to 17 (Team Elf).
