    since the announcement will be cryptically vague , we will speculate anyway so can we then repost everything again in the new one?

    Of course. Such is the way of Civ-Fanatics.

    Also you'll know when something's been announced because this thread will be getting constantly spammed with new posts.

    For those of us who are time zone challenged, if there was an announcement at the usual time when would that be ... so I could be asleep and miss it of course

    True, when it was more clear what STK meant. This tread gained like 4 pages in an hour or so. When firaxis announces something big like 10 civ new leaders with a seasonal ticket. Together with a new patch announcement. Civfanatics is going to explode.
    And you will know something is going on besides talking about socks.

    Meaningful chatter will likely only happen if anything gets posted on twitter or if the steamdb page gets updated. So you might as well keep that tab in your favourites and check it once in a while to see if the Last Recorded Update date has changed.

    I would rather not be awake after 15:59 hours on tuesday till thursday in the coming 2 weeks. Otherwise firaxis holds back new content off course. Bite needs to be asleep.

    Humankind possibly?

    edit: regardless, its disappointing. I tried a game recently, but without your giant earth the game feels stale going into industrial.

    10 AM seems like a popular time for them (approx. 20 minutes from now)

    I'm kinda only expecting a tease today at best, so it might also be later.

    I don't know if they would tease a season ticket kind of thing. But announcements are usually a Tuesday/Thursday thing.

    So I went through all the (recent) dates the videos for upcoming patches got updated to youtube:

    September Update - Tuesday
    June Update - Monday
    Antarctic Update - Friday
    GS Announcement - Tuesday
    Spring 2018 Update - Thursday
    March 2018 Update - Monday
    R&F Announcement - Tuesday
    Khmer/Indonesia DLC - Mon/Tue
    Nubia DLC - Tuesday
    Macedon/Persia - Tue/Weds
    Australia - Tuesday
    Poland - Tuesday

    So it seems a bit all over the place.

    Edit: Added the rest of the DLC. Tuesday seems more likely if it's DLC we're getting. Otherwise it seems it could be any day.

    Yeah, personally any public announcement/talking to other human beings sorts of things are definitely not on my list of what I want to do on a Monday morning.

    Theory 1:
    It seems to me STK is very plausibly Shoot to Kill or Storm the Keep, and could be related to warfare scenarios. But only FXS knows for now.

    Theory 2:
    Sultans, Tyrants, and Kings
    5-10 more leaders for existing civs

    Theory 3:
    Ships, Traders, and Kingdoms
    The long-awaited exploration expansion

    I’m currently leaning toward theory 2

    Yeah, as time passes even I somehow think expansion is more probable than DLC ... if STD is really first letters of something that is most likely expansion, because its not Civ tradition to put DLC's so late in development, and three letters for DLC name sound a little bit too much.
