    The funny thing about Ed Beach revealing leaders is that the leaders were already revealed! Remember the portraits?!

    You guys need to check the calendar. He's the lead on this project. It's September. Remember when the release of the game is? ;) He's quite probably swamped.

    Save for Gorgo and Harald Hardrada, as they were never widely accepted as B5 and C5, respectively. A few managed to guess Harald/Norway IIRC, but they were more or less ignored.

    They weren't "ignored" per se. They just couldn't provide a photo to match the blurry picture.

    Yeah but may be a very different now. Not that we knew and loved. Who knows what they did to him in all of those looooong days. :evil:

    The title sounds like the name of a movie. Ed should be fine. They'll probably just take bigger precautions next time so a leak doesn't happen again.

    Okay, I knew they read the forums, but this confirms that they really know everything we say about them.

    Ed also thanked about the concern of CivFanatics and /civ with his well-being.

    But why would you not want to like him :lol:

    Well yeah, he's alive/not fired, but is he still the same person? :mischief:

    Certainly not the end. Clearly corporate suits hacked his account and left a false message to make us think he is healthy and fine. No doubt in reality he is still locked up under Firaxis headquarters.
