    No, Canada's ability is two-way. If Carl plays Canada, neither will be able to declare a surprise war on the other, but Ed will be able to do so against the computer players.

    If Ed wants to win easily, he chooses Hungary and watches Marbozir's video on how to play it.

    And when they see that Matthias is sporting a medieval mullet, they both immediately declare a 100 year war on him.

    Canada's restriction on surprise wars is not a hindrance at all in a two player human game. It will always be in the interest of one player to denounce the other player as soon as possible in order to open up the option to attack. If both players were good logicians then they would both know that this is the smart move for the better player because it opens up more options to both players, and adding equal options is an advantage to that better player.

    .. who will send the first trade route to the other person... :)
    Just because Carl plays does not mean that Ed cannot, certainly.
    I double either would choose a Canada/Hungary match because that would not be sporting.
    I'l like to see Maori vs Sweden both pushing cultural victories.

    So have we figured out exactly when this starts? Do we have any official announcement beyond the tweet and what they said in last week's stream?

    Iirc they said something like: it will run the whole afternoon. So I don‘t expect it to start at the usual reveal time (now), but in a few hours. Maybe like other the live streams in 4 hours?

    Firaxis is doing a livestream today at 1pm Eastern Time. Not sure if it is the duel match with Ed and Carl or something else.

    I believe that is when the duel will occur.

    This. Does anyone seriously expect Canada’s ability to buy time? Everyone knows about the Carlmonger, him giving you a formal heads-up doesn’t really matter. The only logical explanation to Carl not denouncing Ed immediately after meeting is the former being afraid of losing his job:p

    My biggest fear is that the two will be too polite to each other and play too much by the rules. Which will be a shame because people are tuning in for outside the box thinking and BLOOD.

    If the Paradox dev clashes are any hints in that regard, office hierarchy doesn‘t matter in live streamed MP games. Politeness is also only a sign of weakness in these streams.

    What time does it start? I don't see anything yet on the twitch-stream?
    (But I don't know what time it is at Firaxis' location, maybe it's still morning there :lol: )

    I am not entirely sure the problem you perceive arises from the Canada civ per se.

    Depends on what happens during the stream. Civilopedia-gate was never available for later replay ...
