    I don't think they are going to release it at midnight, so I agree with 68.

    Anywhere from morning to evening eastern US, although the last few were consistently around 1pm eastern US.

    Of course, the base game launched at midnight, I think. I wonder if the expansion will follow a release schedule closer to the base game than they do for just general patches/DLC.

    Good idea, I hadn't thought of that. Though it's hard for me to take Thursdays off. I am taking that Monday off the day after the Superbowl.

    I haven't found them anything like OP on the maps I play (TSL Terra ludicrous
    size at emperor level and marathon pace).
    It amuses me that with every release of a new civ there are almost immediate
    cries that they are OP. Each civ has weaknesses that can be exploited. It just
    takes time to learn how.

    Each civ is "OP" on paper, but when so much OP is stacked up against one another they balance each other out.

    This been the case with most civ when the first look came out.

    The DLC civs are on average stronger than the vanilla ones.

    They should have announced this expansion next year, the week before February 8. :p Then drop all the First Look videos for the Civs in the same week.

    That way, I wouldn't have to feel so hyped/anxious about what Civs are going to appear for around 10 weeks. Tuesday can't come long enough. I'm feeling the leader/Civ they reveal next week will not be on my wishlist. :( Either Canada, another post-colonial nation like Gran Colombia, or a Western European country like Belgium or Switzerland. I'm convinced this will be a Europe-heavy expansion. After creating DLCs for Nubia and SE Asia, Firaxis may think that's enough non-European representation.

    Maybe the only non-European Civs will be Korea and Mongolia.

    And as a matter of fact that is exactly what I said. :p No, I expect that post-Achaemenid Iran, for whatever reason, will never feature in game (though the Parthians would have made more sense than the Scythians).

    Well, I can't speak for anyone else, but I for one would be bothered if Persia favored Islam rather than Zoroastrianism...

    Actually, it's how the Chinese have always seen it--the Chinese have never seen "Han" and "China" as synonymous; they always perceived the border people as "Chinese." And considering both the Mongolian Yuan and Manchu Qing assimilated to Han culture, it's hard to argue otherwise.

    Because England was a lot more interesting before the union of the two crowns? Yes, that's personal opinion, but it's nevertheless the opinion I hold. Honestly, England was a lot more interesting before William came along and Normanized the Isles, but I don't hold out much hope for ever seeing an Anglo-Saxon civ or leader. :p

    I'd believe that if they won some games occasionally, but they don't.
    On the maps I play, Kongo and Aztecs are by far the toughest to beat. All others
    (with Brazil a distant 3rd) have no hope.

    @Zaarin

    Don't forget that the name of the majority ethnic group in China is Han Chinese.
