Edit: The Saladin image from the wikipedia article, by the way
Default Saladin is just Harun ar-Rashid ("the Righteous") intensifies...I suppose "djellaba" saladin will also get a name, even it not announced (neither Black Catherine or Bullmoose Teddy were announced either, but Catherine the Magnificent and Rough Rider Teddy): according to its lua, Righteous Saladdin, maybe?
I'm expecting old Saladin could be called Scholar Saladin since he would focus more on building worship buildings that give science and culture.So we have Sultan Saladin, which one's which?
In other persona packs, they both have names, Catherine the Magnificent and Catherine the Black Queen
Yeah, I saw a lot of people complaining in the YT comments, but this is a smart thing for them. They have constant, short teasers on an almost-daily basis. It keeps the hype consistent by keeping Civ and the LP on people’s minds, which generates interest and discussion and brings more eyes to the game. Take the different YT shorts of various parts of the reveal trailer every day leading up to the livestream, and now we have teasers for the three leaders over the weekend leading up to releaseYou know, if they release those trailers on the weekends, then it's actually kinda nice to soften the wait. Given we know that they don't release anything like First Looks on the weekend anyway (and friday's too, I think?)
Sigh, now I can't unsee it...Dude almost splits in half
Not necessarily. Bull Moose Teddy's LUA is Antiquities and Parks. I think a LUA just called "Sultan" isn't enough either. Maybe "Sultan of Egypt and Syria"?Different personas are namely distinct only by their LUA. So, the LUA of Sultan Saladin will probably be "Sultan", while the "name" of vanilla Saladin will be "Righteousness of the Faith Saladin", if they follow the same conventions than the two leaders with personas.
My only question is why wouldn't they present this new Saladin in armor as Chivalrous Knight Saladin, if the old one would be Sultan Saladin?That said, I think the 2 Saladins will still have Saladin as their shared Name (even though it's an Epithet), and we might get something like:
- Sultan Saladin (bc I don't think Firaxis will change it to "Ayyub" or even "Salah-addin").
- Saladin The Chivalrous Knight (bc he was well respected by many westerners).
I think Sultan Saladin will be the Saladin we have now, who has Bonuses towards Faith Science and Culture (maybe a small buff?), which fits him as the Sultan of Arabia (Egypt and Syria). And Saladin The Chivalrous Knight will have the LUA:
- Besieging a City decreases the City's Defenses each Turn. Bonus Combat Strength when fighting Requenst and Protectorate Wars. Peace offered by Saladin removes all Grievances accrued by that Player against Saladin.
