    Where did I mention laziness? Can you point it out?

    Please don't attribute something to my post that wasn't there.

    But since you mention it... why not attribute something to laziness when it can be attributed to a regular release cycle? Are you actually suggesting that simply because one possibility exists the other cannot? And then suggesting that not only do I disagree with that notion, but because I do I can't possibly understand software development?

    Okay, you win. No way am I going to argue with that.

    Let's hope the devs set aside some more days for playtesting.

    I don't think that this "good" RNG will work well. Profit will be to good to ignore, to small to even bother or best case don't cost management. As you said - to difficult to balance. On paper maybe it looks good, but i doubt that it will in game.
    There is also anither "bad" RNG feature in game - strategic resources. Is it bad& I don't think so. Game is about overcoming obstacles and problems with instruments you have in your hands. And if you can forsee all problems for thousands of ahead will it even be a problem? I think game will just become boring if everything can be under control.

    I don't have high hope but I wish....
    No way so close to Switch release.
    Still liked for optimism.

    Someone on reddit claiming to be a Hungarian translator is saying that the Vesuvius Leaders are as follows: Mansa Musa, Arpad, Simon Bolivar, Atahualpa, Tāwhiao, Roxelana, Arawrahta, Midgegooroo, Eleanor.

    If true then the new Civilizations would breakdown like this:

    Mali - Mansa Musa
    Hungary - Arpad
    Colombia - Simon Bolivar
    Inca - Atahualpa
    Maori - Tāwhiao
    Ottomans -Roxelana
    Burma - Anawrahta
    Noongar - Midgegooroo
    England or France - Eleanor

    RNG mechanics like Random events have certain pros and cons to it, which has been mentioned in this thread 100s of times.
    But no matter which side of the coin you are on, mechanics like optional Random events will not be used by many CIV VI gamers.

    RNG mechanics are and were always a part of 4X gaming.It is just about the implementation and fun elements of the feature.Also something like that will be implemented if Firaxis think it is worth it to invest resources in a feature that will not be used by a lot of the gamers.

    If that's made up, it's an interesting list and had some thought put into it

    Don't know if it's a hoax or not, but if it isn't kudos for thinking up (to me) obscure leaders.
    (All except Mansa, Bolivar and Eleanor)

    Two South American civilizations and and two Oceanian civilizations in the same expansion is quite unlikely. And this is little eurocentric by Firaxis pattern.

    Not sure what you mean. Too eurocentric or not eurocentric enough?

    Only two European leaders do not seem likely, imo.

    Ok. An argument with strategic resources is legit for me. More. This is core RNG mechanic of the game - > random map generating. (even random barbarian camps are kinda part of it).
    And yes RNG is a factor helping to spice up the game. But you must be very careful with spices you know :)
    The question is. Do we want random disasters as I described in a bad RNG to be part of it?
    I see way more cons than pros.
    But you know. Maybe I am just prejudiced against the idea.

    I'd think we could use additional challenge. Game isn't particularly difficult now.

    I find the list a little unlikely, Maori and Noongar, 2 South American civs, Roxelana as Ottoman leader, Eleanor as leader of France or England.
    Still if true I wouldn't be devastated. Some interesting choices and not too many extra European civs.
    I do wish Firaxis would stick to women who actually ruled, rather than just famous.

    R&F had just the Netherlands and Scotland (and arguably Georgia, but even if it's in Europe (which it isn't, I believe; iirc it's Asia) it would certainly not count as Euro-centric.

    To be fair Mapuche civ on a list like this would have been found unlikely too.

    True but its also the geographical spread. At least its not half a dozen more Europeans for an already crowded Europe but South America and SE Asia are getting a lot of representation, North America and Africa none extra.
