So I've been watching some of the YouTubers play the game and I really like the look of it, have pre-ordered and I'm really looking forward to it. Going to be a hard week of waiting ahead! It's all looking really classy and tasteful; I even like the artstyle of it. But then we get to "religious combat". What's up with that!? It seems so out of place and really badly implemented. Major invasions of apostles into your territory that has to be countered by your own apostles waging some kind of godly magical war with lightning bolts and thunder. It looks better suited to some kind of a fantasy game. And what's it supposed to represent from real history? Religious debates or what? It's silly and totally unimmersive. A function like that would have been OK if it had been reserved for spies and intelligence, for an example. Agents, counter spies and intelligence operatives fighting it out on the parallel map layer; little James Bond characters shooting and stabbing each other in stealth to gain the upper hand in the covert war. But for religion? I hope that religious combat function is drastically changed, because, in my eyes, it's terrible.
