I can't wait to get my hands on the expansion, but I just watched an in-depth video about the new features, and tourism sounds really boring in my opinion. Let me explain: what does tourism for your empire? It really sounds like a "most points" victory, which is the only one I always have disabled. I want to win the game, but not just by adquiring a stat that doesn't do anything else than win you the game. - A cultural victory now, wins you the game, but you got more powerful by adquiring policies and tiles. - A domination victory, well, it's clear, it made you powerful, until you wiped them out. - A space victory, made you powerful by having the most modern technologies. - Even a diplomacy victory, beeing allied with city states and in good terms with nations is also useful during the game. But what is the usefulness of tourism? Winning a game by raising a number that doesn0t give any benefit is like winning the points victory. Wait, even worse, since more points means you have probably better/more cities/technologies/armies. So, did I understand correctly? Is tourism just a number you increase to win the game, and doesn't give you anything useful during the game? I hope I'm wrong, maybe they don't mention other uses in the video I watched. I don't play for the final win screen. I play for managing a nice empire, and if I do things I want them to mean something, not just raise a useless number.
