    I want to say the Inca, but everyone last week was convinced that it was going to be Sweden because of those snowy European-style castles haha.

    Well it could be Sweden in the summertime...
    Should have stuck with my first guess though as the Inca

    Also I think Machu Picchu will be Pachacuti’s palace same as the Chataeu Frontenac was Laurier’s

    Very strong Inca vibe, can't go wrong.

    Is what devs want us to think,
    then they come and say
    "You thought it would be Inca, but it was her, Kristina of Swedennn"

    Well, there's a ton of 'Boom Baby' and other Emperor's New Groove memes on Twitter so a lot of people there are thinking Inca too (of course there was a least 1 person asking for Ottomans with a Titanic gif in tow).

    I'll be glad to see the Inca if this really is them but I'll be very disappointed that Firaxis wouldn't capitalize on revealing Kristina on her birthday. It would be too perfect to miss out on unless it turns out Pachacuti's birthday is also tomorrow or that Gustavus is actually leading Sweden (though the leak has been right so far).

    Imho, it looks too regular to be a rock. I’m more inclined by some kind of building roof.

    Cold sunlight like the one shown could still be applicable to sweden but Incas are heavy llama-welding contenders for cold sun rays.

    In the past they have not been especially gungho about aligning reveals with noteworthy dates. The only one that significantly aligned was Victoria on the anniversary of her coronation. I don't consider it a factor.

    Well, it looks like four weeks of voting for the Inca is finally vindicated. :p

    Can we not capitalize "ottoman" in that sentence? Sitting on an Ottoman would be just plainly awkward, as opposed to sitting on an ottoman. :p

    If Machu Picchu is the Incan Palace, it would have to be simplified to fit in the city.
    I still hope for an Andean world wonder. I don't care if it's Machu Picchu, Incan or non-Incan. I just want one to represent that region. Mesoamerica already got two, so why can't the Andes get one wonder?

    No waterfalls, only typical Swedish architecture.

    Well, I think you're both right, as the macchu picchu mountains were clearly built by aliens.

    Technically, the Inca was the leader of the Kingdom of Cusco which expanded to control a large group of Quechua speaking people forming the Inca's Empire, i.e. Incan Empire. Since in Civ the leader is immortal, there will only be one Inca in the game. No doubt his emissaries will come bearing Inka Cola, which he bottled himself.

    I'll see myself out now. :groucho:

    Now we only have to work out which clan uses that tartan and we should be able to nail down the leader.
