I didn’t expect too much from the update, and I am surprisingly content from it. It is way bigger than I expect, and Firaxis even dares to add a brand new effect to Tourism. There are so many things I want to try out. Bravo! Except they didn’t make drastic changes to [insert your country’s civilization] by making it extremely powerful and extremely fun to play. Consequently, this update is obviously a total failure with no chance of any redemption! Joke aside, I might have hoped the team would rethink more civilizations, like many other players here. France was my top contender. They did make the Garde Impériale better (70 Combat Strength!) and the Château is more flexible (same requirement as a Mekewap but not as powerful), but… I want MORE! No! This is not a child whim! I am a grow-up now! I feel awkwardly ungrateful to say this, but they are a lot of Culture + Gold tile improvements like the Great Wall, the Pairidaeza and maybe the Golf Course to some extent. The Château was the least impressive of the bunch, so more prone to face drastic change. Basically, I imagined something like that: I don't know what to think about the free Builders ability from Spain and Maya: it is quite powerful, maybe too much? Currently, the Ancestral Hall is depicted already as the best Government Plaza's building, but that does mean that Spain and the Maya could build the Warlord's Throne instead. Is Gilgamesh new Combat Strength bonus cumulative? If I have 5 Alliances and manage to bring all my Allies against a common foe, does that mean I now enjoy +25 Combat Strength?!
