    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 67

    Welcome to the 67th game in the 6OTM Series! These games will allow new and old GOTM fans to try out the new features in Civ6 in a friendly environment. Participants are encouraged to post questions, stories, advice, tricks and failures in the dedicated game threads (described below). Each game will specify the Civ you will play and the Victory Condition to strive for. We will be working to refine the 6otM concept as we move ahead with the series. Gifting of cities is an exploit in a religious VC as the AI cant see that it will lose if it accepts the cities.

    Must Read!
    Civ VI - 6otM 67 Details:
    Here is where you will start:
    6otM_67_Start.jpg


    Eleanor's Unique Attributes:

    Spoiler :
    Eleanor's Special Ability: Court of Love: Great Works in Eleanor's cities cause -1 Loyalty per turn in foreign cities within 9-tiles. A city that leaves another civilization due to a loss of Loyalty and is currently receiving the most Loyalty per turn from Eleanor's civilization skips the Free City step to join this civilization.

    Unique Ability
    : Workshop of the World: Iron and Coal mines accumulate 2 more resources per turn. +100% production towards Military Engineers. Military Engineers receive +2 charges. Buildings that provide additional yields when Powered receive +4 of that yield. +20% Production towards Industrial Zone buildings. Harbor buildings increase Strategic Resource Stockpiles by +10% on Standard Speed.

    Unique Unit: Sea Dog: English unique Renaissance era naval unit that replaces the Privateer. Has a chance to capture defeated enemy ships. Can only be seen by other Naval Raiders unless adjacent to it. Reveals Naval Raiders within site range. Requires the knowledge of Civic of Mercantilism to build them.

    Unique Infrastructure: Royal Navy Dockyard: A district unique to England for naval activity in your city. Replaces the Harbor district. Also removes the Movement penalty for embarking and disembarking to and from this tile. Must be built on Coast or Lake Terrain adjacent to land. +1 movement for all naval units built in Dockyard. +2 Gold and +4 Loyalty per turn when built on a foreign continent. Cannot be built on a reef. Requires the knowledge of the technology of Celestial Navigation to build them.



    Information about threads associated with each individual 6otM -- Must Read if you are new to our Game of the Month!
    Please note: If you wish to make a video of your game, please do not post any links to it until after the game submission date has passed. This is because of the potential spoilers that are created by posting before the end date. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Spoiler :
    Announcement thread (this one): This thread is used to announce the game and clarify the settings and rules (don’t be afraid to ask questions). It’s also used to discuss the game before you start, and post problems with opening the save. Once you have opened the save, DO NOT POST in the Announcement thread, even non game-related information. Instead use the next thread.

    Opening Actions thread: This thread is used to discuss the game's opening decisions and strategies through the first 100 or so turns. Here you can post questions related to the game and share your achievements/anger/frustration/victories while you play. We encourage players to use the spoiler tags for screenshot. During the time the game is active, please do not post any information concerning the game outside of the spoiler threads including screen shots, videos, or recorded/live-cast Let's Plays on other websites.

    After Actions thread: In this thread you can post the results of your game. Please state your victory/loss date and final score (preferably in the post title) and describe your path to glory in this post! Players are encouraged to provide feedback on the game. Some players like to replay the game, and although we will not record the results from a replay, you can still post your new experiences. The game will not be closed as such, but after one month, the results will be compiled, and will not necessarily be updated with reports coming in after the finish date.

    So I've only played one diplo game with the new rules and the mechanics seem broken. The vote that comes up for +2 diplo points / -3 diplo points (starting 4th age?) always has the world voting against the diplo point leader. So your points get into the teens and then erode faster than you can gain them. That was my experience playing a tall civ anyway...

    Do you play a domination game and leave 1-2 civs, get suzerain over every CS, and then out-vote the remaining civs ?

    Any advice ?

    Had the same experience. Two suggestions: either getting rid of all but 1 civ or vote against yourself (which will gain you 1 diplo point if its the winning choice leaving you at 0 gain on that vote) and try to make it up with emergencies / competitions / nobel prizes (if Sweden is part of the game).
