He might be a time-traveller for all we know.
It's probably best not to ask. Just keep an eye out in case he does it again, and remember that he has a track record now.
I'm not sure "above average" is how I would describe Poland. Poland can be insanely OP--maybe not on a Cyrus/Alexander level, but still pretty crazy.

To be fair, he might have just been some guy that really wanted Nubia in. They were at the top of most people's lists alongside Ghana/Mali/Songhai and Ethiopia.
[Edit]: I see, that's not the guy I thought you were talking about. He does seem like he had inside knowledge.
Is he a developer or something?
Bringing Archer rush to the next level....and with Gods of Craftsmen Pantheon I think this is probably one of the most productive Civilizations.
I would be extremely happy.
I think Goddess of Reeds and Marshes will serve Nubia well, since it it likely they will have plenty of Floodplain and oases and won't be choking it with districts like Egypt.
I agree with you, i'd put them in the 75th percentile but wasn't trying to get into that in this topic. They aren't as easy to play "out of the box" as the two you mentioned, due to Hussars being quite expensive, and one isn't guaranteed to get relics.
Damn she's thicc
In all seriousness this seems like basically a ranged unit spam civ? Not sure how to feel about that, I mean it's not like the AI were bad enough at handling those already. The +40% district production with a pyramid up could be quite strong for going wide too and/or in combination with going military for the cities you conquer
Not sure it'll be my favourite in terms of game design but it looks quite strong in theory, it just feels a bit one-dimensional
Yeah It appears Firaxis think we have the most fun taking candy from a baby... I honestly have no idea how anyone could find that fun. Congratulations you spammed archers, bum-rushed broken AI and won the game on turn 50! Much fun...
So now for the third leader we have a few choices:
1 an alternate leader for Egypt which seems very likely,
2 another African civ like Ethiopia
3 another SE Asian civ other than Indonesia
I'll certainly take a free discount on districts. Honestly that popped up to me as the most powerful bonus. If you're going for rush strats you can absolutely get a great general made earlier than any other civ you would play, and that is a big deal. This would be the first time I would definitely put down the UI if I had the opportunity to. But really just for the district discount; the actual yield bonus is menial to me.
The secondary bonus to me is the extra yields on mine resources, sure why not.
The archers are the least interesting to me. They still can't take cities so, as long as the battering ram works the way it does in Civ 6, I still don't see any reason not to stick with melee or heavy cavalry units for combat. Better use of hammers.
Or Indonesia has two leaders.
That's the least likely though
I feel like the most OP thing is being almost treated as an afterthought. 3-move archers??!
Maybe. Maybe not. At this point, having any additional civs or leaders for Africa is the least likely, because that would already be revealed. We would have gotten Nubia last Thursday and the additional component today. They might reveal it tomorrow during the Livestream, but I consider that very unlikely.
So I would rank the chances:
1) SEA civ in addition to Indonesia
2) alt leader for Indonesia
3) additional civ or alt leader in Africa
Thank you much, kindly Sir ;-)
Can still be like the Swahili/Kilwa with Indonesia and have the spice trade scenario
