    You make it sound better than the Reality.

    Diplo victory. - Barely improved, still very badly implemented and kind of pointless.
    Game speed scaling. - Still many of The modes and mechanics dont work properly in different speeds and map sizes.
    - AI, - Still weak, and uncapable of achieving a domination victory, Even playing alone.

    The other aystems have been tweaked, I would not say reworked. In most cases I have not noticed any improvement.

    Honestly, at this point I think they will at most, solve a few bugs, minor balance and maybe add some UI conveniences.

    I would be surprised if they even make the World Builder work properly.

    There’s not a single thing in the game that doesn’t work properly across all game speeds. Dunno what you’re talking about :confused:

    So, in regards to Kevin's tap on the Barbarian's head, that's got to be either shameless trolling, or a hint.

    Does anyone have any ideas for a game mode involving barbarians?

    Edit: Only thing that immediately pops to mind is the Barbarian Outposts to City-States request.

    Someone mentoined Raging Barbarians. I believe among other things it was "mode" in Civ V where they wer more aggresive or something like that. Someone else mentoined it being Grey Wolf, leader of Barbarians from CivRev or something.

    Yeah, but Barbarians are already pretty ragy in Civ VI compared to CIV V and IV. Such an option would be underwhelming in CIV VI imo.

    Ironically, the mode could make them overwhelming rather than underwhelming, heh.

    It could go along plenty of other additional stuff such as the rewards being better, more mechanics around the Barbarians. Generally a Barbarian Rework Mode rather than just Raging Barbarians.

    I could see it being some sort of mode where barbarian outposts can turn into cities/city-states/civs

    Just thinking about Raging Barbarians implemented on top of VI's already potentially insane barbarians gives me a headache.

    Maybe Grey Wolf is going to be a Barbarian Great General.

    Still hoping for them to rework specialists. It's one of the most unloved game elements, and one that in my view is a clear step back from CIV IV and V. I was always aware of specialists in those games. Now they just feel underwhelming and nearly invisible.

    I remember people suggesting adding GPP to Specialists. That might be a sufficient change.

    Maybe you think that map size or game speed should work s a difficulty setting. And that is totally fine that civ score, disaster intensity or other mechanics are not balanced or different mapsizes and game speeds.

    Also I would say the AI does not work at any speed or map size, but definitely is far more broken in some maps and sizes than others.

    What about the apocalypse mode, breaking at different map sizes? In my experience certainly the hero, and secret societies re not balanced for different map sizes either.

    Some of this may be accidentally fun, but up to certain point.

    There's been no "turn on notifications" tweet last week, so I'm not expecting an update on Monday.

    The video update might come as late as Monday 18th, with the DLC being released in the last week of January.

    Even though it will probably be a week later than I originally thought at least I'll be able to watch the video live, since I won't be working. :)

    There's currently no private video in any of the playlists in Civilization's youtube channel. Isn't that unusual?
