    They might have done it specifically to add a large oppotunity cost to pursue CS play. It should make each playthrough more different, since you might sometime pursue it and other times not, instead of it just happening incidently always.

    To me, that sounds positive.

    In theory I'll agree that this does feel like what the Foreign Ministry building should have been in the first place considering I hardly ever levy city-state units. At the same time it didn't need to be that complex since there was no Diplo victory in R&F when it was introduced.

    I also agree with this. I'm glad that we at least get a district now that focuses on Diplo favor and a Diplo victory.

    I am talking aliens ala XCOM if they want to go the route of throwing in XCOM units into the game. They could spawn akin to meteorites with landed/crashed UFOs, spawning exploration or invasion teams in the earlier eras. Maybe they could attempt to abduct units.

    In later eras, have them come to conquer earth. You could have various unit types represented by XCOM foes (Mutons/thin men/chrysallids, etc.). Of course, they would need to have a sufficient numbers and attack power to be a threat to players, seeing as how the AI is pretty poor with combat.

    Yeah I see and understand what you meant. Personally to me that's too Sci-Fi and out there for my tastes.

    I can't help but feel that they wanted to make a diplomatic district and an espionage district, but ultimately concluded that there wasn't enough there to justify either, so they combined what they had into the Diplomatic Quarter.

    I'm wondering if tomorrow we'll see a video on the persona packs. We still don't know what Bull Moose Teddy is all about.

    IMO, the Persona Packs seem like something they'd more likely go more over in a livestream rather than a dedicated video. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    I really don't understand what you are all expecting. They already covered the personality packs in the video last week. You'll find out what old Teddy's bonuses are when the patch notes are released on Thursday. I really doubt that they're going to make a video just to explain old Teddy's bonuses.

    TeddyMain is right though, they have generally accompanied these things with an hour livestream to illustrate the new content. I could see them touching on Teddy and Catherine in a livestream, since they only have one civ to go over this month.

    What time was the first DLC released? And when were the patch notes released last time? Thank you!

    Have they announced the livestream yet?
    Also was the Maya/GC livestream before the DLC itself?

    I definitely remember that the June livestream was just after release, but it wasn’t a major update

    Yes I wouldn't be surprised since there are so many questions at least regarding Bull Moose Teddy that they might address it during the livestream.

    I'd like to know about Catherine's project, too. The +2 culture luxury bonus seems pretty weak by itself, so hopefully the project balances it out. I wonder if it will generate tourism directly.

    In the video, they said that the project generates culture and tourism. So, yes.

    The project gives out culture and tourism for each excess luxury resource you have. That means you don't want to trade away extra copies when playing as her.

    I don't know if anyone noticed it but today's tweet has a link to this website: https://buy.civilization.com/en/game/buy-new-frontier-pass
    I haven't seen it before, but what's more interesting there is a category called Passes and Scenario Packs


    Is that mean they are planning a second pass in 2021?

    It may just be that they needed a section for the two odd things which didn't fall anywhere else and this was the most egenral way they could word it. In fact, it would be more likely they are planning something If there was separately DLC category and separately Passes category. Given that the category itself calls them Scenario Packs when Civilizations inside them sound like better selling point makes it sound to me like some quick label.

    If you click on the link there is also a Civilization and Scenario Pack Bundle Pass you can buy which includes the all the DLCs prior to the expansions: Poland DLC, Vikings Scenario, Australia, Persia and Macedon, Nubia, Khmer and Indonesia.

    It doesn't necessarily mean a season 2 after NFP.

    Of course, it may mean nothing. It's just curious they have used the word "Passes" not "Pass"
