    I'm not sure if someone has already looked at the changes to the Great General in the video, but they intrigue me. No Golden Age button, and the Citadel text is different:
    The first bit is just the change from 3 damage to adjacent units to 30 damage, but the following bit is (if I've got it right) saying that all tiles adjacent to the Citadel become part of your empire; just like Culture Bombing. And you get the same diplomatic penalty.

    I wonder what this means for the Great Artist.

    Edit: I see. :blush:

    Moderator Action: This thread merged then; discussion can continue there.

    I like how in german language, chariot is "STREITWAGEN-BOGENSCHÜTZE".
    Very prussian!

    The info about Citadel adding to the empire is very cool.

    Also, it seems that Great People cant make golden ages anymore, thats a BIG change, to Persia for example.

    This is why I was saying we need a thread that has all the videos in one place. There are too many posts of the same video. I never saw it before and decided to post it just in case. Is there an English version? Apparently not since all the little screenshots are in German. I'll tell you one thing the Germans know how to show you more interesting things when they play the demo.

    Either it means that two Great People share the same ability or it means that the Great Artist no longer have Culture bombing . Maybe the "special ability" of a Great Artist is to start a Golden age,considering that the ability to start a Golden age is no longer possible to every GP .

    Maybe they just thought that the practise of constantly burning excess GGs (and likely by extension Great Admirals) was not right, given that you don't generate them in the same way as normal great people (by extension, this would also apply to the Prophets, given that they aren't made the same way either).
