    You can keep you're pantheon but as the game progresses the AI will spread religion towards so if you don't have religion you can get one but you will not enjoy the founder believe bonusses or fallower bonusses

    This basicly means the AI enjoys bonusses when you have religion(fallower believe) it does give diplo bonusse AI will like you a lot

    And other Ai's will hate you because you dont have their religion untill the industrial / renaissance


    For the late game diplomacy with social policies They just have to add save social policies as a standard option it will work verry well with the new diplomatic system
    I olso thinx it will not have a big impact

    They say the AI will no longer hold a grugd of older actions so that that not everyone in the endgame is pissed at you I hope that is actualy true

    And to be honest i thinx the intrige system will just be as as liberating. about telling the AI that a other AI is going to atack them will they actualy be thanxfull? will they have a positif modifier Proparly not

    Thanks for making me sound somewhat intelligible, Dan!

    I'm really looking forward to the expansion (and, of course, founding my Japanese religion of tenticlemonsterism).

    Thanks for your feedback, apoc; further, you're typically one of, if not the first, to comment on episode releases in recent months. Thanks for that as well!

    :)

    :D

    It's great that G&K has given a lot for PolyCast hosts to talk about. Can't wait about hearing their first comments about it when it's released.
    I can't wait to play it myself but I also look forward to different people's reactions, the new strategy discussions, stories etc. :)

    I wonder did the inclusion of Sweden shock the PolyCast crew, remember one of them wanting the Zulus! :D

    Now we only need Poland and Saxony for a Great Northern War scenario. (Denmark-Norway, Sweden and Russia are already in). Perhaps that's the new civs and scenario for the next expansion pack? ;)

    :)

    The recording of Episode 147 this weekend is to include more pre-release coverage given the influx of new information since the recording of Episode 146.

    :king:

    Any time that there is a civilization that is included in a Civ title for the first time, yes there is surprise but not necessarily shock.
