    Great list. Seeing the rock band achievements though I'm now disappointed there's no Tragically Hip achievement for doing something with a rock band as Canada.

    Argh, as a Swede the A-ha mixup is painful. But I do like the 70s/80s musical theme. Here are some other suggestions, specifically related to Germany

    Double Schlager -
    As Germany remove Dschingis Khan and conquer Moskau

    Buy the rivers from Babylon
    As Germany, purchase all river tiles close to Babylon city state

    Nena
    As Germany, build 99 hot air balloons

    We are the robots
    As Germany, build a powerplant and a GDR

    Pat Benatar (stands even at nearly 5 Octaves) as well...
    i feel we must also add Freddie Mercury (of Queen Fame) to that short list.

    Missed an opportunity for a black metal reference by not having an achievement for activating a Rock Band next to a Stave Church as Norway, I must say...

    Sprakk du i sola, Varg? : P

    Translation: Did you burst in the sun, Varg? Varg is the name of a Norwegian Black Metal artist who burned some (?) Stave churches in Norway in the early 90's. It was widely reported on in the Norwegian media, and this sentence sort of accuses him of being a troll (a mythological one, not an internet troll) who would burst when they came into contact with sunlight.

    Moderator Action: Please provide an English translation. leif

    I don't think I get some of these achievement names, oh well. I don't get the A man, A plan one at all.

    I asked about the Kristina achievement in stream chat, and the answer given was "We had a limited window in which to make Nordic rock jokes and had to do the best we could, sorry"

    Sooo, in other words, "lol whatever it's basically the same country anyway" indeed seems to be the explanation. :rolleyes:

    I was hoping something related to one of my favorite groups RUSH. Maybe "YYZ" - use a rock group in Toronto.

    It's hilarious as well because Sweden has so many famous artists to choose from, and they managed to pick one of the few super-famous Nordic bands that isn't Swedish :lol: :mischief:

    I guess the same person who picked that failed Swedish reference added Roman air conditioning and Kilimanjaro WiFi quotes



    Bonus points if that person is also main AI programmer

    Lol... Whenever stuff like this happens, people should stop thinking that Firaxis is playing some sort of 4D chess, and just go with the simplest assumption - that they dun goofed.

    It’s not Valve or Blizzard, there is no ARG going on.

    Whoops, I don't know why I said "only"? Orbison, Pat Benatar and Freddie Mercury are all favs.
    And I blush when I forgot to say Mariah Carey, 5 octaves reached.

    Well, just say I just reached 6 octaves of stupidity.
