    I feel they went with a loyalty mechanic in order to not make England's colonization benefits from RND lost.

    In GS there will be more Iron the map but you can only build a limited amount of troops with each source.

    She has the best character model in Gathering Storm in my opinion. Looks like Alexander with hair similarities. It is going to be horrible near her in a Dark Age. Luckily she has no bomuses towards warfare in either incarnation so that would be the best case to wipe her off the map before she starts flipping your cities.

    See video at 48 seconds. Counts 10 "Great Works" which includes 3 relics.

    Obviously this may be misleading but it is really strange for them to include that in the video otherwise.

    Hmm....

    Found a religion, get Cathedrals. Build Holy Sites and Theatre Districts in every city. 7 total GS in city seems doable for -7 loyalty in nearby cities of other civs. More if you have music and/or wonders. Combine the GW pressure from 2 cities and flipping cities seems doable. Especially if you add in spies and entertainment districts.

    I kinda wish they had kept England's British Museum ability. Sure, it would have been OP but it would have synergized so well with Eleanor's ability and it would have been super fun to basically flip cities with archaeologists.

    I wonder if the GW loyalty modifier will be cancelled out by a cultural alliance.

    My thoughts on Eleanor, overall a great leader, but you will need to have some testing to see if the Great Works bonus actually makes a big difference in-game

    Yes, it's clearly not modern French. Old French or Occitan would be more accurate.

    She is probably speaking an Occitan dialect as she was from Aquitaine.

    Remember Linda Carter’s TV Wonder Woman? Eleanor’s transformation is definitely more magical and barbiesque. Definitely digging her, however, and she does look lovely indeed.

    Looking forward to playing as her with France mainly. But looking back, I’m in agreement that there is a let down that we didn’t get an outright science Civ. I know that there are new civs introduced that can utilize their particulars for a science victory, but not explicitly. If this a sign for a third mostly science focus expansion, so be it. This one has definitely focused on culture, diplomacy and open civs. Maybe they’re compensating for Korea.

    I would love Jefferson with some kind of science bonus and a LUA centered around the Louisiana Purchase. GIVE ME ALL THE ALTERNATE LEADERS!!!

    Very cool that there are two models.

    Not so game breaking ability but interesting for sure. Would def play her with France first

    Welll, if "science focus" equates to a "here's some blue icons" ability, then I guess so, but I don't think excelling at science requires such a ham-handed approach. Cultural victory requires tourism, a resource specific to the victory condition. Science is as ubiquitous as a resource gets.

    If you can excel at producing districts or buildings or settlers, you can excel at science. We have GS civ's that are good at those things.

    Eh, wasn't her Majesty Queen Victoria from House of Hannover, which came from Germany?

    Yes, but would have liked to see them a bit farther apart in age.
