    First thought: Cool, nice to have multiple leaders and Gorgo confirmed. :)

    Second thought: Nice that it sounds like their focus with multiple leaders is to encourage distinct playstyles. :clap:

    Third thought: Wow, two Greek leaders and 0 Alexanders! Approved! :beer:

    Final thought: Along with 300, this is really going to reinforce that notion that somehow ancient Sparta was an egalitarian paradise. :splat:

    I don't get this. Some of you are just never gonna be satisfied :( We knew Gorgo and Pericles share UI, UA and UU, and they differ in LUA. And they really do differ in LUA. What did you expect?

    Pericles has culture from CS, she has culture from kills. Other alternate leaders might differ in focus, these differ in paths.

    Yeah, this is exactly what people should have expected from multiple leaders. I don't really get the complaints either.

    Well I'm deeply sorry for Pericles, but I'll play with Gorgo :cool:

    It's going to be really cool to have both Athens and Sparta!!! in the same game.

    I hope they tune the hoplite shields.

    You can see that Sparta is the capital in the video.

    Personally I think the choice of Gorgo as the only additional leader in the vanilla game is ridiculous. Firstly it seems uneven (makes your game seem very incomplete unless you get DLC), and why of all civs does Greece get a second leader? Also, I still think this leader choice is atrocious (they talk about her being a queen, but make no mention of her only being a consort).


    Yep, that would have made a lot more sense. I suppose they wanted a break from Alexander though, which is understandable.

    My only regret is that they didn't throw responsible historicism to the wind and just depict her in armor.

    Well, she's officially the most attractive woman in the roster.

    It's interesting how many people on this forum had any surprises in this announcement. I thought everyone knew who will be announced today :)

    It was mentioned in another thread that part of her agenda involves hating civs who have never gone to war, which I think is really interesting.

    Guess they can't do it quite the same as Culture is global. They could restrict the bonus to clearing camps to limit farming.

    Greece easily makes the most sense as having 2 leaders, because it was divided in its Golden Age. And the nature of those divisions is fairly well known.(ie pop history knowledge)
