    Given our previous discussions about what 2 civs/3 leaders meant, it does seem to make more sense for Egypt to have a second leader of Nubia is included.

    If they're going that route, they'd have to announce the new Egyptian leader tomorrow. But given when Amanitore lived, a more ancient Egyptian than Cleopatra as a competitor does not make sense, unless the scenario starts much earlier.

    Thinking about it, I think the patch notes were only released after the livestream with Persia&Macedon? At least I remember them talking about the patch in the livestream (and how the lastbuilt-bug was fixed)...

    They already announced a livestream for tomorrow. I think it's safe to assume there's nothing else to be announced aside from patch notes, so this DLC include only Nubia and Amanitore (plus scenario, wonder and maybe other small stuff)

    Yes. I agree. I hope we get the patch notes in about an hour.

    I know bite was just being a good mod, but until we know the full extent of DLC5, it would have been better to keep the thread open.

    I wonder about the time frame of this scenario, because since the scenario seems to give a hint that the second leader might come from Egypt, we could pinpoint who that leader is.

    Ramesses II could be the second leader of Egypt, especially for the Gift of the Nile.

    Didn't really expect Nubia, but it's always great to have some new leaders. The UU seems really OP, as if archer rush wasn't OP enough already. I just hope the AI can use them properly. It would be nice to have similar situations as in Civ V, where I'd discover a new continent and it was completely conquered by someone.

    50% production towards ranged units. That is just insane as i think of it. That must be like 1 UU archer every 2 turns in the capital on Epic speed. Amazing defensive or attacking potential. (With the 50% boost from military card from ancient era)

    I wouldn't worry about it, native English speakers do exactly the same thing all the time when they use this/next for specifying days of the week and end up confusing everyone :lol:

    Love the inclusion of Nubia. Everything about the civ, screams fun and a exciting game. I am wondering though, does the inclusion of Nubia, basically mean Ethiopia is out?

    For Amanitore's agenda, I expect something like «dislikes civs that have too much unbuilt tiles»

    In a game where we can have both Macedon and Greece as separate civs, I don't think we can use geographic proximity or shared cultural traits as a disqualifying factor in guessing what civs will be added to the game :crazyeye:
