    Repurposing this thread for all the test patch reviews :) (Not sure if a mod can change the subject to be more generic?)
    Moderator Action: Yes we can. The_J


    Mohawk continues to make great balance changes, adjusting and improving the game. Here's a quick (does 25m count as quick?) video summarizing the changes:

    I'm most excited about the historical nerd potential of the dynasty system.

    TL;DR:

    Dynasties = There's four new preset leaders based on historical figures (Ptolemy, Alexander, Pericles, Leonidas) for Greece, some of whom have cool custom traits (e.g. recruit courtiers, build a unique shrine, have a 50% crit rate) as well as custom events. Presumably this will eventually be available for all eight nations, bringing joy to history nerd hearts everywhere.

    Nope, I love Sullla for his extremely high quality content, but he's not involved with developing Old World.

    I saw him stream a very early version of OW but since then nothing. Not even a mention of it on his site. Strange, I would have thought this to be a game right up his street.
