    In passing ... Civ6 in China?

    Proof? I don't want to be rude, but without some article supporting your claim it's just hearsay.

    [NFP] August Patch Game

    For culture victory you don't really need any advanced techs besides flight& computers, so why did you get so much science? Or did it just happen since you had so many cities with nothing better to do?

    I suck please help

    A couple of tips: 1) wonders are quite often traps. There are a couple of better ones which are worth going for, but generally you should be building settlers, builders and campuses. Without the dlc's the best ones imo are the pyramids and Colosseum. 2)At the enlightenment civic there's a card...

    August 2020 Update - Patch Notes Discussion

    I totally agree. The buff to EC isn't really big enough for me to build them, but it does help when you want to build one anyway (eg brazil, or one for the zoo/colloseum). This change made the Colloseum less good for amenities, but at least it's culture is slightly buffed. Not only do you get +2...

    August 2020 Update - Patch Notes Discussion

    Seems not. Ironically theis may have made amenities less important, because ther's no benefit to going to +1 or +2. Get just enough amenities to stay at content, and then forget about them.

    August 2020 Update - Patch Notes Discussion

    It seems that the best strategy now is to just keep all your cities at -1 or 0 amenities, and ignore the bonuses that happy or ecstatic can give. Also, when will the patch be released?

    [NFP] August Update Challenge

    I voted for culture victory just because I like it the most About the settings, the choice of quick speed is a bit strange, just because I have never seen anyone use it. Generally SP games use standard speed, and MP games use online speed.

    Great Wonders Elimination Thread

    Hanging gardens (10-3) 15% growth isn't much for small cities- In a 5 pop city with every citizen working a 3 food tile, there's a surplus of 3*5+2-2*5=7 food. So the +15% growth is just +1 food. For big cities, growth isn't important because there's not much point in growing above 10 pop...

    Pingala and Oracle, how do they stack ?

    They multiply each other. However, the Oracle doesn't work like you think it does. It doesn't double the GPP generated, it instead adds +2 to each district. So with Pingala in a city with the Oracle and a campus (without a library) you'll get (1+2)*2=6 Great Scientist points per turn. With a...

    Sneak Peek at Composite Victory Type Rankings - so far...

    Thanks for the detailed reply! I never really used the district discount mechanic, but I'll try thinking about it more now.

    Sneak Peek at Composite Victory Type Rankings - so far...

    I know this is going off topic, but I'd appreciate it if you could explain a bit about how you play the early game. I usually try to get bronze working quickly (normally when I get the boost), to discover where there's Iron. What tech path do you usually take?
