Wait. It's at 3456 posts that we get the first look!
Is there any chance the African civ is Carthage, and the second leader is Scipio?
Yes. There is a chance.
The DLCs 5 and 6 are meant to give underrepresented regions some representions - that's what comes to my mind when reading the announcement. While Carthage is geographically in Africa, I have trouble to think of it as an African civ culturally and historically. I think of it as a Mediterranean civ and I guess the same happens for quite some people. So while there is a chance that Carthage is the announced African civ, I think it is very unlikely and the coupling with Scipio even more so. And I'd really be pissed off if it would happen - I'm not sure if that would be the feeling of the majority though. If we ever get Carthage in civ VI (I think it doesn't necessarily belong to the 30 most important civs in history, so there'sno reason to have it in every game) I just hope they don't focus on the Punic wars again and instead make it about expansion, exploration and trade. Hanno the navigator or Mago I would be fitting leaders.
Pix of the look on the cat's face when the vet tried to spay him?
The mistake was using Isabella of Portugal's picture for Isabella of Spain.
I'd vote for a Phonecian civ over a Carhaginian civ personally (not that there couldn't be both - England has two of it's former colonies in the game!).
three. more pedantically, 20 or more depending on how you want to categorize the Indian provinces.
Phoenicia could be interesting, but it has a few problems: it was never unified (not necessarily a huge problem--Greece and the Maya weren't either--but Tyre, Sidon, Byblos, etc. didn't even have the cultural unity that Greece or the Mayan city-states did), and there aren't any leaders really noteworthy for their personality (or much else, for that matter--I mean, the only leader I can think of is Ḥiram I of Tyre, whose major noteworthy accomplishment was selling Solomon some lumber). Carthage, meanwhile, had a unified empire in the western Mediterranean, and it had a good handful of leaders to choose from, most of whom have the surname Barqa, incidentally...Of course, our knowledge of Carthage is also a lot more limited than it ought to be (thanks, Scipio Aemilianus).
The interior of Carthage was the original Africa; the Africa name was later used for the entire continent.
Just like the Middle-East was in the past all of Asia.
And Europe is named after one of those people coming from Syria to Europe.
And Europe was originally just a small Part of Greece.
Immigration mechanics confirmed!
In the light of the recent relevations, I assume they are just going to add more greek and greek successor civilizations.
I'm not sure about the lack of cultural unity in the Phoenician city-states. Didn't they all spoke the Phoenician language and worship the same gods?
i have trouble believing that they will get 2 leaders per civ at this rate.
No one ever said they would, and I doubt that is their objective.
I have no trouble believing some civs will get 3 and others stuck with 1 like in Civ VI. Not that that's a bad thing, Kongo wouldn't really work with another leader.
That would be cool. Russia is a good candidate for three.
That's funny... I was thinking Russia would be OP with another leader, and they are already pretty damn good.
In other words; I don't think much of Peter's LA
