    They do have the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Bazaar in Istanbul. Sure they could change the name, but to me that would be minor. It's the best option for a bazaar to appear at this point, since Arabia and Persia is already out of the question. And the idea of bazaars spread to Europe as well with the Ottomans help, or so I believe.

    It can be called whatever if it's implemented in the game. For discussion's sake, everyone knows what a bazaar is.

    Wouldn't Genghis be Tengrist? Is Tengrism even in the game?

    Yes. No. I'm still hoping that Chandragupta and Genghis mean Jainism and Tengriism are added, and that we get Oriental Orthodoxy in time for Ethiopia's triumphant return.

    That would make a great breakfast dish to compete with Teddy's apple pies.

    When I see the "a significant number went back to Civ5", it vaguely annoys me. Mainly because of the history of the Civ series.

    After all, when Civ 5 vanilla was released, it was lambasted and many, many of us stayed on Civ4 long into the 1st and even 2nd expansion. The fact that the Civ6 numbers are climbing to equal or exceed the Fully Complete Civ 5 numbers *before* the 1st expac is officially released is a positive sign.

    Remember that Civ4 didn't have Steam integration, so nobody really knows how long the transition took. Just using myself as an example, I had Civ6 (deluxe) on release day, played a few small games, saw it wasn't polished much yet, and went back to Civ4 until a few weeks ago.

    Now I've spent an insane amount of time learning the game just in time for the expansion.

    R&F might be the only thing that could make Civ VI the greatest Civ game among the majority of longtime Civ players.

    And thus Tamar of Georgia lifts the Civ series into the greatest Golden Age it has ever seen along with Indigenous Canadian representation, not Gandhi led India, and Polders.

    I really hope not. Civilization expansions always had 2 problems:

    1. Fitting expansion mechanics with base game ones.
    2. Not enough patching cycles after the last expansion as the game lifetime is close to an end by that time.

    Having third expansion would double both problems. I'd prefer early and solid second expansion with several DLC accompanied with patches afterwards. But I understand the problems with post-expansion DLC and I don't see any clear solution too.

    If we actually see canals in the second expansion, the Civ6 will reach perfection and collapse the universe around itself.

    Well, they are essentially the same thing. Canals are just man made channels. :)

    Would love to see canals in Civ VI. People keep asking for them. Listen to your fans Firaxis! ;)

    Am I the only one waiting for information about emergencies? There was absolutely nothing except from the initial anouncement and there are only 4 weeks until release.
