Well, it ended in a stalemate. Here's the map at 250/1/11:
It's frustrating when that happens, but especially on an early scenario. That was just under 6 hours without a winner. But at least with it being so massively different from the first run there's plenty of chance of a different result next time.
It's funny, in the X version, the coalition was greatly strengthened, A strong Sun Jian force brought up to Xu Chang, and Yuan Shu and Ma Teng greatly strengthened. But these three were the first to fall to Dong Zhuo. Although it must be said Dong Zhuo also gets another 10 officers. In the North, where efforts were made to rein in that magnificent, wild stallion Gongsun Zan, he broke free of his harness and conquered the North anyway. And Tao Qian took the South. At this point, Dong Zhuo was run by Liao Hua, Gongsun Zan by Liu Shan and Tao Qian by Sun Quan.
I've done a lot of X Series runs now, and you might be interested in the results. I can post more about them if you want, but here are the winners. Keep in mind forces drop to beginner stats after they get a win:
184 X – Sun Jian, Han, Gongsun Zan
185 X – Cao Cao, Turbans,
Cao Cao191 X – Gongsun Zan,
Gongsun Zan192 X – Cao Cao,
Cao Cao200 X – Cao Cao
207 X – Cao Cao,
Cao Cao211 X – Cao Cao,
Cao Cao223 – Wei, Wu (near full conquest, had 40),
WuAlso, in the rivalry between Yuan Shao and Gongsun Zan, here's the result of their struggles across all my playthroughs, not just X scenarios:
186 – Gongsun Zan, Yuan Shao, Yuan Shao, Yuan Shao (Crash game)
190 – Gongsun Zan, Yuan Shao, Yuan Shao, Gongsun Zan, Gongsun Zan
190 X – Yuan Shao, Gongsun Zan
192 – N/A (both still there right at the end when Wei destroyed them), Yuan Shao
192 X – Yuan Shao (Gongsun Du killed Zan though), Yuan Shao
194 – Gongsun Zan, Yuan Shao, Gongsun Zan
196 – Yuan Shao, Yuan Shao
198 – Gongsun Zan, Yuan Shao
199 – Yuan Shao, Yuan Shao, Yuan Shao
251 – Gongsun Zan, Yuan Shao
Note that in 190, Gongsun Zan won the first playthrough outright, so had beginner stats vs Yuan Shao in the second, which Yuan Shao won outright. So then they both had beginner stats. Gongsun Zan won the fifth playthrough outright after wins for Cao Cao and Dong Zhuo in 3 and 4.
That 186 crash is the only time I've run into a show stopper crash. It's unfortunate for Yuan Shao, as he was the favourite at the time for an outright win, having conquered the North considerably earlier than the other two times he beat Zan.
