    You mean Askia the Great, the one who carries a giant sword in front of a burning city introducing himself as peaceful?

    If the Celts get in then that almost certainly bumps either Georgia or Italy from being in this expansion. I doubt Firaxis would add three European Civs and since we pretty much expect the Inca at this point, and maybe the Zulu now, there would only be one spot for a new Civ to be introduced. I mean there's a chance the Ottomans get in too since Anatolia does need a Civ. In which case none of the last 4 Civs to be introduced would be new, which would be a huge disappointment. Hopefully some new Civs will get introduced via DLC.

    Hopefully the leak is fake and this wont happen since Im expecting at least two new Civs out of the remaining four.

    Do we know the same Firaxis? They absolutely would have 3 European civs in the same expansion.

    People keep saying they doubt that there would be 3 European civs, but since civ III every expansion has had at least 3 European civs in it so it wouldn't be that surprising at all.
    Not that I advocate it but I anticipate it at the same time. Personally I hope for a sub-Saharan West African civ but I'm OK with the Zulu if they are included.

    And if this "leak" is correct I think that the Celts/Scotland replaces Italy in my predictions and that Ottomans will be a DLC cause I can't imagine them waiting until a 2nd expansion for them with the Byzantines still to come too.
    Or Georgia is a huge red herring in the trailer which I would find very strange and we still need that female leader who plays with the golden ages.
    And I personally can't imagine that the Inca aren't in this expansion.

    Perhaps its just naive optimism that Firaxis has changed and wont add three European Civs. To me its incredibly wrong to have over a dozen European Civs yet have just 4 African Civs at the same time.

    Firaxis and I believe Anton Strenger have a weak spot for The Celts/Scotland, because in Civilization BE: Rising Tide one of the factions "the North Sea Alliance" had to have a Scottish leader because one of his ancestors was of Scottish descent.
    And like someone said before even in the other Firaxis game X-COM you can get Scottish soldiers under a Scottish flag while the United Kingdom (where Scotland is still a part of) is in there too with the Union Jack as a flag.
    So if the leak is true at least I hope it is Scotland and not the Celts again. But if they are the Celts again I immediately will turn them into Scotland by modding the files :lol:.

    Imagine if Idi Amin of Uganda were in R&F.

    After all, he called himself the Last King of Scotland.

    If the Celts were in, then expect fiddle music for the Ancient and Medieval eras.

    If it actually is the Scots, we get bagpipes.

    ...and plenty of drums and fifes accompanying the bagpipes for the Medieval era too.

    Well, I am not against the Zulu and Celts returning, they just weren't expected. Hopefully, the next FL will clear up if the leak is true or not.

    Maybe. Is it possible for them to create an ambiguous teaser? I hope at least one of them will provoke more debate than the past ones have

    The only reason they haven't been ambiguous teasers thus far is because of leaks, we almost always were able to figure it out right away because we always knew to look in the right direction. Chandragupta and the Cree would have had somewhat ambiguous teasers but since we already knew they were coming because of 2k China's mistake we deciphered both pretty fast.

    Yeah, it would be sorta nice if the teaser took us more than five minutes to solve. Then again, it is also nice not to be in shock when the FL video actually arrives and it isn't someone totally unexpected. I am torn on this one.
