    I'm probably going to regret this because I'm now going to get hundreds of email notifications just from this thread because I'm too lazy to turn them off, but let's get to the point.

    @Eagle Pursuit, you say that you think that the first look will come next tuesday... Could you say how sure you are about it in percents? You know, easy numbers - the best numbers :)

    If you're going to post some dancing bananas, link the Benny Hill Show theme music so we can listen to it while we watch the bananas and rejoice.

    Sounds about right. I think at this point only a technical issue would delay it, given that they already added the achievements.

    ...or Kongo's theme if we want to use in-game music. After all, it's called Banaha.

    The industrial and atomic era themes would be better in this case.

    I think that the Medieval one is better to use. Industrial and Atomic are little bit "too orchestral" to remind me bananas.

    And Brazil Medieval Theme, although called Brejeiro, would be the best, since it's the first theme that effectively made me dance (although not exactly like a banana).

    Did they ever say the Leader was going to be for one of the two African/SEA civs? I'm expecting, like, John Adams.

    Yes. The wording was "2 civ+scenario packs with 3 leaders representing Africa and Southeast Asia"

    "In the coming months, we’ll be releasing two additional Civilization & Scenario Packs for Civilization VI that will introduce three new leaders representing civilizations from Africa and Southeast Asia. This content will appear automatically for purchasers of the Civilization VI Digital Deluxe edition upon release."

    I don't think that John Adams is African or Southeast Asian leader.

    I agree.

    Medieval Kongo theme and medieval Brazil theme would be played with dancing bananas.

    Something I have been wondering about is if the African civ is the Zulus, will the Impis still be as OP as they were in Civ 5?. I just finished a Civ 5 game with them in it, and by the Industrial Era they had conquered 14+ cities.

    So with that in mind, do you think they will get a really powerful unit or a more general buff that applies to multiple era units based on the Zulu combat strategies and tactics.

    Of course they are OP. Anything that has a ranged attack before melee attack is OP, regardless of Era. I guess that Zulu could make a return - Shaka is simply one of the symbols of Civilization. But I doubt that they will come in this DLC.

    Well, maybe they should make the Benny Hill theme the official music for Kongo.

    Right, I guess I'm just wondering in Civ 6 what form of OP will they take :lol:
