    Yeah hopefully Norways is amongst the reworked civs.

    As for Maori, they are looking so fun to play, kinda feels like a mix of Polynesia and Spain from civ V, I don't mind the loss of great writing slots if it means I get to focus on exploration to settle natural wonders before anyone else. I can recall many games were Eisfalkuyeakkjakul spawns on its own island, I can imagine settling it with Maori will be nuts.

    Also the devs mentiones they update te world generation algorythm hopefuly it means there will be more archipielagos for Maori to take advantage off.

    And as a animator, I can't help to be amazed at the quality in Animation for Kupe, I'll take this leaderscreens over civ 5 any day.

    On a TSL map, Maori should just skip New Zealand and head north to settle the first city at the Great Barrier Reef! That would be a powerful start.

    Hills, mountains, and ice are not defined as Features in the game - they are Terrain. The only impassible Features up to this point have been certain Natural Wonders.

    You can get tourism by planting forests. :)

    Their National Parks will be phenomenal though since all features get +2 tourism after Flight

    My thoughts exactly. Pearl of the Danube seems like a better Iteru, this Civ has a better Knarr. I sense some power creep going on...

    I rather get them as center building from ancient tech, on cities near a body of water or coast, than from turn 1 just for settled.

    Well Piopiotahi is a good option as well. Make sure one of them is on the TSL Map in the first place. If one isn't go the other way.

    I think they mentioned Egypt is getting bonus fertility from floods? (needed and it suits them). Maybe Norway could get increased efficency from Sea trade?

    Yeah, and then make a second dash to Uluru, before sending a third settler to Piopiotahi long before Australia gets the chance.
    Good grief!

    Yes, I get it, we had some quite bright ancestors. But... look again at that canal at 0:36 mark and remember that the guys don't even know yet how to put two bricks together at that precise moment :)

    As cool as it is, I am a bit disappointed that the Toa can build Pas like the Roman legions do forts. In the case of legions that is something their armies trained hard to be able to do - erect and tear down forts in a day. Pas were a permanent fortification.

    I'm guessing Thursday's livestream is going to involve having viewers pick the best starting location.

    If so, we need to encourage them to explore as much as possible so the might reveal new city-states and natural wonders.

    Also, we should get a glimpse of the civics tree.

    I would make it so that Norway can pillage without declaring war but they do get grievances for it.

    I was thinking of overflow chopping out a couple of quick galleys (or 10) and taking out the nearest 2 civs on island maps. Then I realized I couldn't do it.
