    I have seen 2 youtubers (Potato and Saxy Gamer, both got warning of the frontier pass) both call it Bermuda Triangle with confidence so I assume it is confirmed.

    I don't think I've ever seen the fountain of youth in Civ 5, and I've played hundreds of hours.

    I think I'm fine with it. If it's powerful and rare it can be a fun addition, as long as its bonuses are interesting.

    Pogo was amazing. Between this and Beyonce we're having a very cultured discussion so far.

    Don't know if it was mentioned before, but this unit was identified by SaxyGamer and Potato McWhiskey as the "Soothsayer", a unit specific to Apocalypse mode; SaxyGamer further elaborated that it's a unit you can send into foreign territory to call down disasters on your opponents.


    I think it was specific to the DLC that contained Spain.

    Free automatic healing and upgrade to units who fortify next to it.
    Because we all know that archers are historically "younger" than slingers. :mischief:
    It's wishful thinking.

    I suspect the Bermuda triangle is categorized as a wonder but only can show up when playing in apocalyptic mode. And it has some sort of disastrous effect.

    Potato McWhiskey said of the Bermuda Triangle that it was a wonder, but was specific that it was not part of the Apocalypse mode. Make of that what you will.

    I imagine it would need to have a risk/benefit mechanic for people to actually want to risk their ships or aircraft go through it. like a random chance of getting extra movement, or a free promotion, but also a chance to loosing the unit instantly.

    He also speculated "green wheat" (i.e., rice) was a new resource so... :p

    I also noticed in the video A leader in the top right that doesn't look. like one of the current leaders along with that I also see Bogota and other cities in Blue and Yellow. I also noticed some new UU Calvary at the beginning of the video. Grand Columbia for sure.
