It is updated. Maybe clear your cache.
This would be a very interesting take on Greece considering Athens was very focused on culture whereas Sparta was very focused on military.
I'd prefer a switching mechanic
The closest image I can find for Teddy Roosevelt:
Has anyone actually found a pic of Hardrada to match C5? I'm actually not sure if that's him or not still. He could potentially be DLC, and not repped on the board. Which would mean some incredible trolling of Ed Beaches part and a leader board that remains incomplete.
This is the image used in the updated OP.
I can't see them dropping in a "Venice" style civ in the base game. For those that run on such unique mechanics they would need to come when the baseline has already been set.
Good call! Now I found my peace
If I'm honest, I'm really disappointed with the Completed civ leaders list.
Looking forward to the Modders doing their thing.
Still playing the game on Oct 21st though.
Im happy with the choices, many out of the box picks some we seem to have missed completely.
The Aztecs are not Native North American, they are Mesoamerican, and they're also not, strictly speaking, in the base game.
and 'strickly speaking' ... that part of the continent is still north america.
not that the distinction means much, but if you use 'native north american', you have to include all of them.
Well in one scenario there is no representation and the other is equivalent to Kamchatka being the sole representative of Asia, so neither scenario is exactly setting my world on fire
Yes, Mesoamerica is part of North America geographically, but Mesoamerica is culturally much more linked to South and Central America. The Aztecs and Mayans are not representative of North American Indians in the typical use of the word, which is generally used both colloquially and technically to refer solely to the non-Inuit indigenous peoples north of Mexico.
Probably Harald's civ won't be Norway, but a generic Norse civ, and later they will add a Danish and a Swedish leader to it as well.
Flipped, is this the right picture of Qin?
As for complaints about Eurocentricism; Firaxis must have calculated they don't have enough fans elsewhere to warrant inclusion.
As for DLC, seeing as Gorgo leads Greece, I can easily imagine Suriyothai leading Siam at some point.
Wow....so disappointed. And Greece gets to be split into two civs?! This is definitely not a preorder for me.
They are definitely going to add the Persians, Ottomans, the Mongols, Babylon, a Native American people, a Southeast Asian civ later, but I wonder how long? 2018? 2019?
Greece probably won't be split - Pericles and Gorgo are both listed under 'G' for 'Greece' in the leader portrait chart, rather than as 'Athens' and 'Sparta'. The most likely explanation is that there will be multiple leaders per civ, as there was in Civ IV. Don't forget it seems there also seems to be two leaders planned for Spain (Philip and Isabella).
I'm totally with you that it's an underwhelming selection though. I guess token representation for everywhere outside Europe is the best we can expect for the time being...
Looks like a match.
Germiyan *Ottoman/Turkish split unlikely
Golden Horde *More nomads? Then again Scythians
Golkonda *India split unlikely, any split unlikely
Gondwana *Gondi/Gond people?
Gotland *Not likely
Granada *Sound make The Moors to represent the Muslims in Iberia as a whole
Great Britain *Wouldn't do English split
Guarani *Interesting, high hopes
Guge *Why not just the Tibetan Empire?
Gujarat *Lothal = Harappa? Unlikely
Gwalior *Indian, unlikely
Haasa *Arabic, unlikely
Habsan *India, unlikely
Hadoti *India, unlikely
Haida *Interesting, high hopes
Hainaut *Important how?
Haiti *When it achieved independence it was astonishing, then hard times hit
Hamburg *German, unlikely
Hannover *German split unlikely
Harar *Ethiopia, unlikely
Hatakeyama *Japanese split unlikely
Hausa *Nigeria instead?
Hejaz *Arabian split unlikely
Hesse *German, unlikely
Hindustan *India, unlikely
Hobyo *Somalia instead? Medieval Somalia, while city states were powerful
Hojo *Japan split unlikely
Holland *The Netherlands (Dutch Civ IV) rather than Holland
Holstein *German, unlikely
Holy Roman Empire *Barbarossa means no on this option
Hormuz *Ormus? Most likely no.
Hosokawa *Japanese, unlikely
Hsenwi *Shan people?
Huai *Chinese, unlikely
Hungary *Would love to see.
Huron *Iroquois enemies? Interesting, high hopes
Huyla *Inca are the preferred South American to Firaxis
Iceland *Not likely; Norway!
Ichma *Most likely no leaderless nations like Harappa or Caral
Ikeda *Could not find any info
Illiniwek *More natives!
Imagawa *Japanese, unlikely
Imerina *More African nations!
Love some of these, the thing is Firaxis doesn't do dynasty/civ splits. One of the only exceptions were Babylon, Assyria, and Sumer (although Sumer and Assyria were never in the same game) and Holy Roman Empire and Germany.
