    I am incredibly surprised that they made 3 entire new units for a free balance patch, but I'm also incredibly thankful! That kind of effort is not expected from a free balance patch, but it is much appreciated devs. Cheers :D

    As for the other balance changes, YES. I love them so far! I do worry about Mounties, as with the extra National Park it will turn games with Canada into a race of conquering them before they can unlock it. Otherwise, there's going to be a tourism explosion.

    I'm also glad that (at least with Georgia) they've incorporated some community balance changes. I recognize the faith on kills from BBG, and I'm remaining wishful that other civs get some community-suggested changes incorporated.

    And if this ends up being the last update... wow! What an update to end a game on!

    Thanks for all your hard work civ team, and from what I've seen, I can already tell this is going to be an amazing update :goodjob:

    Huge is still too small for an Earth map.

    I'm thinking they'll stay the same (considering it's not directly tied to a Cassus Belli, persay), but I'm also assuming they might be nerfed a bit.

    Does this patch's changes effect your opinions on the New Frontier Pass? Presumably had this been an expansion, they would have come out at the same time, and my inclination is always to include free changes with evaluation of expansions (separating them out is headache inducing, and ignores the way paid contents fund other development).

    An elephant? I suppose it could mean Siam (or another elephant-wielding civ) if we wanted to speculate

    That looks like a Seahorse with the back of its head open, so I've got no clue. :p

    Seems like a pretty big jump to assume CB abilities are going just because of Georgia... Canada still has immunity to surprise wars so they clearly aren't getting rid of that entire mechanical space. Though Scotland could also do with having that ability updated I reckon...

    Hoping this update to Naval AI is the main nerf to civs like Portugal and Maori, meaning I actually am forced to play a good naval game.

    If the AI does well with Philip that could be very interesting.....

    Australia's ability doesn't have anything to do with a CB. And I'm not sure if they'd get rid of all of them. I'd be fine if they got rid of Robert the Bruce, but I feel like it's kind of thematic, at least for gameplay purposes, for Chandragupta and Cyrus to keep theirs. But I wouldn't mind changes to them, but not outright get rid of them.

    I don't think they can just remove Leaders in free updates. :p Seriously speaking, it should at least be a Reconquest bonus as other people have said.

    I don't understand what people are still complaining about Georgia for. They seem pretty decent and interesting now.

    LINE INFANTRY!!! I've been pining for a unit between Musketmen and Infantry. I know that's a weird thing to focus on, but this pleases me to no end. Also, I'll gladly take Men-at-Arms. The gap between Swordsmen and Musketmen was also a bit odd. And a trebuchet too? Thanks, Firaxis!
