    Sadly, with Scotland confirmed, we may have to accept that Zulu is probably reality.

    I place the odds of William Wallace looking anything at all like the medieval knight he was, rather than a blue-faced Mel Gibson, at approximately 0.

    Spoiler William Wallace :


    Spoiler Medieval Mad Max :

    Not neccesarily him but a UU would be a prime candidate, but who knows. Bagpipes will definitely be playing for the theme.

    Well this is mildly depressing. No Ottomans, still? But Scotland is in...

    I guess I can live with this as a small solace despite my ancestral Cornwall now being excluded with the Celts likely out

    I'm disappointed they went with Scotland over Gaul or Ireland, I just hope they don't actually use William Wallace or call the civ "Celts". Also a bit miffed about lack of Ottomans and likely replacement of the Inca. I don't really mind the Zulu but I would've preferred Babylon as the returning Civ 1 vet.

    Now, we must all come together and petition for DLC, so as to enable that we all (or at least most of us) receive our favorite individual civs.

    Who will get the unique district? Encampment for Zulu?

    Could it be called the Gaelic Empire to include Ireland as well? That might be a stretch.
    99% sure it will be.

    I doubt it because Armagh is a city state. A Gaelic civ would presumably be more Irish-centric rather than Scottish.

    Zulu will get the Unique Encampment for sure. Mapuche will probably be the cultural/defensive civ.

    I'm guessing they'll show Mapuche next week, followed by Gaelic/Scots and then finish with the Zulu.

    Yeah, pretty annoyed they went with Scotland over Gaul or Ireland.

    The term you want is Dal Rialta. :p

    So... twenty-three days.

    Ok, I must try to be positive about the reveal of Scotland... Well... If the Scotland is really in the game along with Victoria's England (along with the USA and Australia), we may also get both Austria and Bohemia. And, with a little (huge) amount of luck, even Hungary!

    Btw. I still see the Santa hats :p

    Calling it now:

    23rd: Mapuche reveal
    25th: Scotland reveal
    30th: Zulu reveal

    With a couple of livestreams thrown in, maybe one in release week.

    Nope, me too!

    I too see the Santa hat.

    Oh, and Mapuche, Scotland, and Zulu are becoming very likely.
