    First of all, you put two 6. Second thing, Thai and Siam are the same thing (though Civ V's Siam is clearly Sukhothai Kingdom), and lastly, Swahili is confirmrd not to be in BNW (Zanzibar and Mombasa are still CS)

    Why do people think "Gran Colombia" is a distinct entity from Colombia? Why do you treat it as a civilization that magically stopped existing after the country split? It was a separation, not a genocide.



    He's a real but semi-mythical figure, it's as if Hercules had really existed and was actually a leader of the Greek civilization.

    I never said any of that. I made the joke because most of the arguments center on Bolivar in particular and the leader intro would obviously recount the state that was basically the culmination of his life's work?

    Damn so neither the interview or the 2k event revealed any hint at all for a new civ? They need to drop a C-bomb soon, speculation can only go so far. :)

    My updated list:
    1. Brazil
    2. Zulu
    3. Portugal
    4. Assyria
    5. Poland
    6. Cherokee (I want the Sioux/Western, but this seems more likely)
    7. Indonesia
    8. Morocco
    9. Venice

    Yeah pretty much. If you look at the speculation now it's really just cyclical stuff. A whole lotta grasping at straws, throwing darts in the sky, recycling the same theories using different words, etc. Lol, come to think of it even what I'm saying right now has been said too many times

    Wait, I'm confused. Are you for or against Colombia/Bolivar?

    my mistake then, had little time for it.

    How you know some civs are confirmed not to be in the game but then not know which civs are in?

    And I though Siam were the same thing as Khmer and not Thai.

    As he said, cities that would be prerequisites for their inclusion are instead found in-game as city-states (CS). On that note I'm never really a fan of any Swahili "empire" since it was at best a really loose agglomeration of trading city-states from what I know. Kilwa was certainly fascinating, though.

    Siam is clearly Thai or Thailand. It just got renamed in 1939. Khmer is not the same thing as Siam. The Khmer Empire is part of Cambodian history.

    not too sure about this, but is Switzeland even a city state in the game? if so, i have no memory of it whatsoever. anyways, i get it probably won't happen, but the Swiss could be a cool civ to play as, considering they would have some sort of GPT/trading bonus).

    Yes, it's not one but two city-states: Geneva and Zurich.

    Is there anything against Colombia/Bolívar in what I said? I'm 100% pro-Bolívar.

    Don't be sorry mate, it happens :)

    anyway, I think Khazars will be in because there isn't any jewish factions in game.

    Are we still trying to figure out the civs for the brave new world? Or is brave new world out already?
    When they say brave new world I thought they were going to introduce civs from Americas, lol, but now I see they have civs like Assyria who's been at war for quite some time.

    I wasn't sure how to interpret "semi-mythical". Why do you think Bolivar and Colombia deserve inclusion? Please be specific, I'm genuinely curious.

    Bolívar is Hercules and Gilgamesh, if they had actually existed. Bolívar is Attila, only his civilization still exists, and has a proper city-list.
