    I had the thought it would more be about canals.

    Still think the whole ice & snow theme should be moved to Norway. Russia should have the old "siberian riches" resource advantage. You know, I simply associate ice and snow more with Norway than with Russia.

    Yeah, this is huge. I thought it was ridiculous that a warmonger can declare a surprise war against you and invade you but if you fight back and win, the world hates you and condemns you as the warmonger. So happy they fixed this.

    Also happy to see diplomatic favors.

    Probably not, the second expansion in V just copied over the features, omitted the civs and it wasn't necessary to have G&K to pla with every mechanic.

    But really though, lets be serious for a second there. Natural disasters? New technology era? River names is the real deal here, I'd pay 30$ for this standalone. (also, regarding the third EP, do we know or have any reasons to believe whether it will or will not happen?)

    This expansion makes me wonder what even a hypothetically third expansion could cover. There is so much....
    One interesting thing is that there was no mention of religion being touched whereas the other victories are being looked at.
    The Maya and Byzantium would go well with a religious expansion if we got that as #3.

    "In Gathering Storm, Favor is a new form of currency to track your diplomatic goodwill. It serves as voting power in the World Congress so you can get the world community to adopt your ideas. On the other side, we’ve replaced the Warmonger score with Grievances. This acts as a tug-of-war between a pair of players – if you’ve ever been at the receiving end of a surprise attack and retaliated by taking a few cities, I think you’ll appreciate how this system has been updated. The other leaders are now likely to feel that such a countermove was entirely appropriate."

    Warmongering is gone, Hallelujah!

    They also state that the World Congress can ban things like chopping rain forest, but I really hope it's possible to ignore the World Congress this time, just for Diplomatic Penalities.

    Yup, looks good and if you are the guy starting all the trouble you should get no sympathy from the world.

    I'm just stoked the Hall of Fame is finally back.

    I doubt that the game will get a 3rd expansion. 2 expansions is pretty typical for past civs. Plus, with 2 expansions, they have made the game a lot more complete. It's a pretty full game now. There is not that much left to add, not enough for 3rd expansion, I don't think. Firaxis seems to be going for really big, meaty expansions.

    I would appreciate changes to science victory. I can see why having a world dominant culture or religion gives you the influence to win, as with dominating militarily or diplomatically to take total control. I don't get how a mara colony does that (alpha centauri made more sense to me personally, as it's presumably meant to be a naturally life sustaining planet you could take control of).

    I remember how hyped I was for BTS, this expansion makes me feel like that a bit. Im a bit older and thus jaded now but still I cant wait for the new expansion.

    No love for religious victory in the late game or is religious victory gone, being replaced by diplomatic?

    I wonder if we could see Alpha Centuri or something like it added as a 4th stage to the Science Victory as a nod to Beyond Earth/SMAC.

    Alright, I've changed my mind, new color system is the realer deal.

    I feel the biggest problem for this expansion is why would you not just win a domination victory long before the climate change.

    We didn't see it but I am SO glad they changed Australia's colours .... Fluro Green and Black was just a nasty combination
