    Ed Beach and Dennis Shirk did a commentary on the announcement trailer in May and confirmed Liberty Leading the People and Starry Night as Great Works, so Delacroix and Van Gogh are presumably Great Artists.

    Interesting, I didn't realize that so many Great People had been revealed. To clarify, what does "unconfirmed" mean in the context of this thread. Are these Great People that previewers remember but don't have screenshots for, or are they simply speculation about likely additions to the list. I'd also mention somewhere in the OP that the General and Admiral Bonuses are "retirement" abilities in addition to their combat boost.

    Though I have not personally seen all of them, one thing of note about the great generals/admirals is that they still provide the combat bonus to adjacent units, however it's era specific. The abilities listed here are consumables for when the general "expires", So for example that I do know about, since it was specifically talked about in one of the videos, Having a largely medieval military while you have Hanibal Barca would render his combat bonus useless. So you can use his ability to consume the GG and give one of your units a free promotion.

    Looking at the list this largely makes sense, Yi Sun-Sin is Renaissance Era admiral that would could boost your frigates, or creates an Ironclad unit with 1 promotion level. So you could have the choice of using him to increase the power of your navy by adding 1 advanced unit - or you can buff it with the typical combat bonuses, and consume him to create the ironclad later, when he begins to lose his relevance in your navy.

    Which is awesome, frankly.


    As far as scientists are concerned - I appreciate the relative nerf of tying their bursts to eureka's. It makes a lot of sense. I've noticed this in couple videos in regards to goody huts too; It would appear that you may not get whole technologies from the huts anymore, but rather their Eurekas.

    Yeah, the Gamestar.De people apparently mentioned Genghis Khan as being a Great General with bonuses to Cavalry. Hearst is a murkier case, there was a spontaneous discussion about him in the screenshot analysis thread that I attributed to user snipperrabbit seeing his name in some preview. Hopefully he'll see this & clarify things a little.

    I am very pleased to see that Aethelflaed is a Great General. If I get her in the game, I will use her ability to make a Knight and I will rename it to Uhtred of Bebbanberg.

    I like the fact there is decent amount of great non-Western people among those, maybe it's a bit better than civ5 where ~80-90% of them were from few Western nations :D (and remaining ones almost only from China)

    Boudica, Ching Chih, Crassus, and Justin Bieber are the ones I'm most looking forward to trying.

    Curious to know what some of the Modern/Information era GP effects will be like. Presumably they'd be a lot more powerful. Maybe Great Merchant Kim Kardashian would give a particular Theatre Square 10 time the culture output and add +10 gold to the tile.

    With Boudicca and Gustavus Adolphus as great people, it seems like the leaders for the Celts (if they are added to the game), and Sweden will be different this time.

    Not sure if they will split the Celts into several civs (ex: Gaels, Britons, Gauls) though.

    Well, maybe. But bear in mind a lot of Civs in V were originally represented by City States in Vanilla (such as the Celts & Sweden cough cough).

    Could be that if they ever want to bring Boudica back, they could always just replace her with someone like Arminus.

    As I understand it the great general is now obtained by great person points rather than experience points. So is there a different effect for accummulating experience points into a pool besides the promotions?
    Another thing I wonder is what can you do with great prophet points after you have founded a religion or all religions are founded.

    Bit confused by the fact GA's can produce multiple works... Do you get all of them, or one at random?

    So, Hall of Fame games will not only require 100 map rerolls, but another 100 rerolls to get the perfect boosts with Aryabhata et al. (I guess you could control this to a degree, e.g. if there's only three medieval techs without boost left)

    Do we know whether there is always same order in which great people come? I.e. whether specific GS is always the first, and once taken is always replaced by 2nd in row? Or was the opposite already proven by videos?

    We also see the Great Prophet slot empty with "All individuals of this type have been earned." I wonder what that means for Great Prophet points after you've gotten one? Hagia Sophia gives them but requires you to have founded a religion, so there must be some use for them.
