    Whoever it was called Zoo granting science for rainforests in another thread gets a prize...

    Bit disappointing that the polder change seems to be the only civ related balance change, no love for georgia :sad:

    Wow, all the complaining there paid off! They never bothered me that much personally, but they didn't add much either.

    Tbh that feels more like an oversight that should never have been in the game to begin with :lol:

    Oh look, they claim to have fixed alert again. I wonder if they really have this time, we're only on the third or fourth try, right? :p

    My guess is it’s something visual to show that it was once a capital city. IIRC, the CBP in Civ V had something similar to that.

    How is "Fixed a bug with the Pax Brittania unique ability that was granting a free melee unit when England obtained a city other than through settling," a bug?

    I thought that you got a free melee unit when you settled or conquered a city on a new continent? That's just a feature of the ability, no?

    Not sure that it's "broken" to need a fix. It's powerful, but just because something is powerful doesn't mean it's broken.

    I wish they had done something to improve Victor though.

    Also, we know there must be a few undocumented fixes, as the Sound Engineer tweeted about having fixed an audio bug in this patch, but it doesn't seem to be mentioned in the notes.

    I’ve added this to the OP. Should be easier to reference or quote for other posters.

    If it is the superior choice in every situation, then something is wrong...

    Yeah, the ability description explicitly says "All found or conquered cities on a continent other than your home continent receive a free melee unit."

    Unless they changed this at some point, this looks like an accidental nerf for Vicky!

    Finally, took them 1.5 years.

    See you in 2020 when they'll fix AI moving Settlers through enemy territory during war because path finding now can and they just HAVE to build a city behind your empire somewhere.
