    Who would deny Venice. All the clues we've gotten ever since April has led us here; Republic of Venice in BNW

    No, it isn't.

    I doubt they would have announced a release date unless they were absolutely sure that it was going to be done by then - remember G&K, they didn't reveal the release date until a month or two out IIRC. I doubt they'd set a specific day unless they were fairly confident of it, not to mention that three months is a significant delay. Besides, nothing has come up on the FB page, so I doubt it's true. Maybe the other sites are just jealous of the hivemind?

    Honestly, the Yoruba still fits the alphabet and there's been no city state deconfirmations (of course their empire was technically called Oyo but I can see them calling it after the people). It's just been accepted the last two spots were Venice and a NA native.

    The Yoruba would be so super extra awesome, but I don't believe it, it's Venice.

    It's not like it's Venice or Africa. We know that one has to be European. It might be Venice and an African civ, but they aren't mutually exclusive.

    It's going to be the Vandals. They're both European and African(due to location) at the same time and they fit with the Alphabet theory as well as being a hypercube nomadic barbarian civ. :p

    We kind of need a thread for the combined theories :p

    Alphabet theory is based on the Steam achievements: the known civs already have one, but the unknown ones just have an achievement code. However, because the achievements are in alphabetical order by civilization, we can tell where in the alphabet the unknown civs are. In this case, both civs are located between the P (of Portugal) and Z (of Zulu).

    The alphabet theory is based on the fact that the "Win as X" achievements are listed in an alphabetical order of the civilization's noun (i.e America) without in some cases "The" (i.e The is omitted from the alphabetical order)

    With Brave New World, once we know 5 of the 9 civs, it came to something like that

    Assyria
    Brazil
    ???
    ???
    Poland
    Portugal
    ???
    ???
    Zulu

    and well enough, Morocco and Indonesia fit perfectly between Brazil and Poland, so know we know that the next two civs are going to be between Portugal and Zulu.

    This question comes up so often, there should be a sticky explaining it - and the wikivenetian color thingy.

    "Personal history" of the source-leaker removed from post. Previous thread was deleted. Apparently I narrowly avoided a week-long ban.

    If I had to guess I'd say the moderator who deleted the thread is part of the Frankenstein group and he's trying to damage control the original Polish post.
