    Three wonders: Terracotta army, Petra and Great Mosque of Djenné?

    Cut-paste from other thread:
    It looks like swordman-heroic epic-colossus-iron resource.
    Yeah, it really looks like the British WW1-tank: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_I_tank
    ------------------------
    where do you see Byzantines in the religion screen? Or can you tell by the symbol?

    Is that a new resource to the very far left of Cardiff (on the screenshot with combustion/machine gun) or is that just iron?

    Lisbon as a city state, could suggest that one of the old city states is bumped up to a full civ.
    Also saw Antwerp as a city state.

    However it could also be that these two are just the new mercantile or religious ones.

    Looks like the city-state influence bar has received a graphics overhaul, unless that's for one of the new mechanics.

    Well that will rule out both Portugal and Belgium als new civs.

    Also, this 'bonus belief available to the Byzantines only' suggests that this is the Byzantine UA?

    8. Update: Sikhism.
    9. Taoism
    10. Mesoamerican religion?

    On the screenshot with the religion screen you can see Dublin as a Celtic city. This would imply Dublin has been removed as a city. You can also just make out the lower half of a symbol next to the city name that doesn't match any of the religion symbols, it looks to me like a lightning bolt.

    I had a feeling that that belgium wasn't a new civ it was a part of Netherlands when it was at it full power. When willem was at power and thats the leader that they are going to chose for netherlands I thinx.

    So it would be kinda wierd if they add belgium with it .


    However I hope that they some day add it and use this in the description:
    Many important battles have been fought in you're countries like the battle of waterlo, battles of world war 1, and so on

    Its true Belgium is a country where a lot of important battles have been taken place in Europe

    I just hoped that the belgium wonder atomium was in the game :(

    The Dutch have a unique tile improvement where they can reform marsh to fertile plains and a unique unit, a ship that can steal gold from harbors and convert other ships (like the Ottoman UA maybe?)

    The cross next to most city names is identical to the Christianity symbol in the religion overview, I guess it makes the city Christian.
    Orleans has one of the other religious symbols

    The third icon somewhat looks like the machinegun icon, so I'd say it's machinegunism :p

    Rigged elections seem to be a city state thing, and Brussels is mentioned in that. So I'd say that definitely rules out Belgium as a civ.

    Moderator Action: Moved to the new forum.

    I won't have time to update the OP tonight this morning, but will attempt to tomorrow. :)
