I've been really looking forward to the new religious victory and the associate systems, but they've shown so little and the civs so far don't seem to provide much help in achieving that victory. I put together a (very) rough table of what kind of bonues each civ is receiving so far. Code: name |def mil|off mil|gold|amen|wond|resrch|infra|cult|faith|diplo|grt ppl|multiuse --------|-------|-------|----|----|----|------|-----|----|-----|-----|-------|-------- Murica | X | | | | | | | X | | | | X Aztec | | X | | X | | | X | | X | | | Brazil | | | | X | | | | | | | X | X China | X | | | | | X | X | | | | | Egypt | | | X | | X | | | X | X | X | | England | | X | X | | | | | X | | | | France | | | X | | X | | | X | | X | | Germany | X | | | | | | X | | | | | X Japan | X | ? | | | | | X | X | | | | Scythia | | XXX | X | | | | | | X | | | You can see there are only three with faith bonuses, which are all unique buildings or improvements that add like 1 faith per or something. This does not seem like enough to secure a religious victory. EDIT: Brazil can also get bonuses from rainforest. Beyond that there are NO bonuses revealed thus far which seem to help that victory type. (Side note: Research also has only one civ atm, but research can be sped by a LOT of factors, including infrastructure, production, wonders, happiness, gold, etc, etc, etc, so I'm not as worried on that front) So maybe all the religious civs are yet to come? Surely Kongo will have some religious bonus, perhaps Saladin? Probably Spain? But is that it for religion? Given that there are no really significant bonuses thus far? What do you all thinK?
