    Very impressed with their openness this time around. It is reassuring to hear them tell us that they are listening to the community and using good players to continue to balance the game a month before release.

    I can't wait to play this game!!!

    Also, the first game maddjin showed he went down the might/industry virtue path that I suggested in one of the virtue theory-crafting threads. That made me giddy.

    After this stream I'm even more convinced like suggested in the other thread that they must indicate potential quests bonuses in the civipedia or in tooltips. They mention quests half the time they talk about a building.

    Very cool "masterclass" which was over all too soon.

    How many hours of experience does MadDjinn have? He's been playing for weeks it seems.

    You are not a pretty man, MadDjinn. :D

    Here's a question: do the +1 yield bonuses from technologies for Mines and Quarries also apply to Floatstone Quarries and Firaxite Mines?

    Probably. The problem with quarrying floatstone comes not cutting it, but how you quarry a stone that floats away. Also, now that I think about it, dealing with the air filling with antigravity stone dust and splinters which would be a nightmare to deal with.

    Wow, Kavitha got a huge upgrade. I was already pondering playing them, but now, assuming things stay the same, they are going to be my go to faction.

    Polystralia got nerfed big time. Seems a shame, because it was one few factions that was actually competing on the same tier with PAC.

    It does seem a bit much decreased. Maybe give them a unique building to have another trade route... maybe the brewery?

    I would be grateful if someone posted it as well. I am streaming it, but it's going painfully slow and youtube works more effectively.

    Really glad to hear they're taking a look at the purity 1 explorer trait. That really needs a fix.

    Intrigued by the puppeting/annexing change. Makes a lot of sense but on the other hand taking cities seems like its going to be a real hassle. Could be a real pain for domination strats....

    There is less of a penalty for being in negative health than negative happiness in Civ V. Maddjin certainly made it seem like unhealthiness is no biggie.

    Yeah, he didn't care much as long as health is over -20, where another penalty added. I wonder what's waiting in deep there.

    Urgh, does any one else think twitch is horrible. Normally the youtube version is up quickly, but this week no luck. Maybe its because this episode aired on a Friday, and the guys that do it are having a beer.

    I like watching it on the tablet as well, and as there is no flash support for tablets in general, I cant watch these videos on my tablet.
