Thread for discussion about the Canada Livestream
You can find out all the info HERE
We will open the thread closer to the livestream time
Not long now till the livestream
Are you sure you have the right time? Almost 6 hours, no?
Maybe they'll tell us why you'd want to farm a blank tundra square
They should really put out a special Aussie version of their announcements. Showing not only the Sydney time zone, but also the Sydney date. Time zone conversions are hard when you cross the international date line.
At least, you know, send one to @bite, so that's he's not waking up early on the wrong day or something.
I'm hyped to see some late-game stuff finally.
Maybe we’ll finally get a glimpse of the future era. I’m also interested in seeing the mechanics of power plants.
I'll be looking forward to seeing the late-game stuff too. If we can, I'm also hoping we can see Japan's new colors (surely that's changed even with the Jersey system) and which city-state will replace Toronto.
I don't think Japan's base color scheme changed. The jersey system allows two or more civs to have the same base colors, but some will have to switch to their secondary or tertiary color schemes if they are in the game together.
Forced alliances would have been another route. Can-Japan-ada for the win!
I'm going to miss the live stream again because I have an appointment later at around 1:30 pm.... I'll post my thoughts once I get to watch the whole thing
EDIT: My appointment was fast, which I didn't expect, so I'm able to watch the live stream... live
I was wondering if there was gonna be a livestream today, guess I missed the announcement.
So "The Last Best West" was a marketing campaign to get people to move to the prairies if I understand correctly. What about changing it so that it grants +1 production on Printing Press then. It reflects the economic activated generated by the migration. Not a stretch when ice hockey rinks generate food and production and it would place tundra on par with plains at that point. It doesn't have to apply to Tundra hills.
I'm guessing that Fertility from Floods and Blizzards will supplement the meager yields from Tundra farms well enough, if a bit unevenly.
Anyway, I don't perceive the goal of TLBW as to make Tundra cities as good as Plains or Grassland cities, just to make them not terrible enough that you can spam out a bunch of smallish cities with Hockey Rinks, National Parks, and Entertainment Complexes. And you can use internal Trade Routes to grow them up as needed.
Maybe it's to make cities just good enough to get the oil and iron and stuff up there.
Subarctic praries are represented by tundra in Civ. It's not like many Russians live in the tundra either.
Yes, when playing Russia I tend to stick to the edges of the tundra and the coasts.
Canada should be better at utilising inland tundra. They aren't ever going to be great cities but Canada looks like a civ where playing wide will pay off even more than usual.
