    Wonders are really weird. Great bath has gone by turn 15 or 20 in one of the games I started, and the next one I'm in, I'm at ~turn 150, and really wondering if I should make a rush at the Temple of Artemis because it still hasn't been built yet...

    You haven't had your Suzerain taken out from under you and had 20 troops you were using turned against you. Yes I reloaded that one. Save scummer. But then later in the game I had Suzerain taken away yet again, this time with a fully promoted Amani at 12 envoys. Luckily this time I had 2 spare envoys to get Suzerain back, but I still lost my levied army. I didn't reload that one. That one was tolerable.

    Good that the AI recognises how valuable those CS are to Hungary.

    hopefully there will be a civ of the week for all civs (gs version)... I will try to play the civ of the week always after it's announced. That could be a nice challenge! :)

    I took a look at the steam achievements and it occurred to me that you could use them to see how strong and/or popular the new civs are, since it ranks the leader win achievements by rarity.

    From lowest to highest: Hungary, Ottomans, Mali, Carthage, Elanor, Canada, Maori, Sweden, Inca.

    Mind you it's not even a week after release so Hungary only got a 0,1 completion percentage while Inca is sitting at 0,3 % (all time highest is Rome at 11 %).

    @Eagle Pursuit, I don't know if you have been looking into patch activity for Mac, but I am wondering if they did some correction because I had a problem from the start with the game, and just out of the blue it was fixed yesterday. Have you seen anything?

    Interesting. Don’t know what happened then. Thanks so much for checking and responding.

    No problem. Perhaps your graphics card drivers or operating system got some kind of update.

    Actually, there were no updates. That’s why I was wondering. My issue was I couldn’t create a game from simple or advanced setup; it would show me any drop down menus. I had to create games using nVIDIA GeForce and save it to the cloud to play. So I did everything Aspyr recommended from running first aid on my system, shutting down and restarting it to uninstalling the entire game (9GB), but nothing. I was waiting for their response as to what else I could do. But last night, I launched it and just out of curiosity and habit at this point I went to Create a Game and everything worked. So happy that it does, but now I have no clue what fixed it. I did nothing different after I finished all their troubleshooting steps. I guess it’s the prankster ghost in the machine!

    I've completely finished my first game in more than a year (never finished one on R&F). I bought GS three days ago, and i've completed my game with the Inca's yesterday. I think i now completed games with Trajan, Barbarossa, Roosevelt, Qin Shi Huang, Gitarja and Pachacuti. Next in line would be Gilgamesh, but i'm saving Gilgamesh for a deity run. I know need to find a proper civ for level 5 difficulty which i enjoy.

    I hated the mapmaking of continents so far, because the new continents seem to be fractal maps... which is not the ideal map to test out loyalty mechanics better. I also played mostly on a map with almost no mountains (with the Inca's), which made that game in particular seem lacking cause i couldn't explore specific mechanics i wanted to do with the Inca's (oh well that difficulty i chose was to low anyways). They've completely changed the mapmaking. I'll see what i do next. I have a hard time making choices.

    I want to play Freleanor (finally a good and attractive leader for France) and maybe Mali, Sweden and Maori for this expansion. I skip the others for now (Canada, Hungary, Engleanor, Phoenicia and Ottomans). From the second expansion, i want to play Mapuche, Netherlands, the Cree and maybe Korea. From the DLC's, i want to play Persia, Nubia and Poland. And from the starter civs, i want to play Aztecs, Sumer, Japan, Russia and maybe Pericles. And if i have played these, i'll start on some other civs. I might do some civs again i've played in the past also (but lack some achievements from them and to have a better grip on them on harder difficulties, but not now yet). And there are still some other civs that interest me, just less than those now.

    I also need achievements for fractal, archipelago map, deity victory, religious victory and huge map, so i need the right civ to play on these settings (Netherlands / Japan or maybe Spain for fractal, Maori for archipelago) (weird i've played with Indonesia and those didn't pop up... and lol apparently it was island plates). I'll play on a huge map with the Aztecs. And religious victory seems a good fit for Poland probably (i guess, otherwise, i'll just do one with Spain or India).

    Signs of life:

    A QA build with GS was updated. Presumably this is the next patch.
