How so? I've played just about every game that had SM's civ in the name and I can't say this is mechanically worse than any of the official titles. OK, SMAC and CTP are a step above but that's a different topic. 3 was garbage, 4 was little less garbage but had the virtue of some amazing mods. 5's weird. For example they at least made the AI upgrade it's units in this one compared to 5.

Personally I'd put the classic Colonization above all others but again, that's subjective.

I remember reindeer christmas mods, tesla death robots in vietnam, fantasy shit. I even remember people doing different games from the era as mods: master of magic, conquerors, dune. Whatever.

As an added benefit there's not a tiny, badly cropped image of Sid Meier everywhere in the game making gay lewd faces at me.

It's the next step in their logic from having Theodora instead of Justinian or Constantine. Also who the fuck is Wilhelmina and how is she remotely considered relevant? I can also imagine they'll feature a plump Anne of Cleves as a new leader for both Germany and England because that's more or less what they just did with Eleanor of Aquitaine. Muh double the female leaders for half the effort.

Clans in At the Gates work like supply crawlers in SMAC, gathering resources for a city, and you have to move them before each winter or they die from the cold. You spend the game moving the same units back and forth so they can spend 1/4 of the game not doing anything and then the game gives you notification spam because you have clans not doing anything and you need to check up on each of them before ending each turn.

So I'm comparing it to when you try to move a group of units in Civ 5 and they all wake every turn because they need to path through each other. That isn't army management, that's the game failing to let you manage effectively.

820c66  No.16136189


You wouldn't move crawlers in SMAC, ever, unless you had to replace them. This is closer to Thea which is alright in it's own right. And how would you even move a group of units in 5? My experience with it was that they trip all over each other and waste a ton of movement points unless you control them individually.

Wilhelmina was a popular figurehead who did a lot of propaganda for the allies in WW2. As far as female leaders go…she isn't that bad.

But of course, there's three leaders that literally determined the modern shape of the country (William the Silent (maybe overdone), Maurice of Orange (finest millitary mind of his time), Fredrick Henry (called the Citybreaker for his sieges). Then you have William III that also managed to rule England, William I, who fought at Waterloo. And then there's a bunch of democratically elected leaders in our past that were better picks then Wilhelmina.

You know what the worst part of Wilhelmina is? They represented her as Pic 1 while everybody in the low countries knows here as Pic 2 or Pic 3. When she was announced on some dutch news show the local royalty watcher (and you know those faggots know this shit inside out) literally didn't even recognize who she was untill her name was dropped.

Honestly, it's not as bad as literal traitor to the cause and nation Kristine of Sweden. Fuck that shit man, that's retarded to the highest degree.

They should've just made them either guerilla fighters or some sort of proto spy unit

Also are the sales figure for this "gayme" out? I'd like to see if it stood CIV IV and V's test of time, cause for all the bad shit about CIV V at least it looked really good graphically.


As ugly the CIV III models looked, at least you could play as Joan of Arc.



Which begs the question, outside of the Sassy Black African Woman, couldn't they have at least picked womenfolk who were either loyal to their country or really good at what they did? Like why pick Catherine de Medici, a fucking Italian who just fucked'n'stabbed, over Olga of Kiev (fucking ruthless bitch who graduated top of her class in Pigeon Warfare), Margaret Thatcher (a tough and controversial bitch but at least she got things done) or some of the mystery meat from India at that point.

988e77  No.16136562


as I pointed out, compared to all the other female picks, Wilhelmina was basically the best one that did hold power over a government in excile, that through force of personality (though this is not very well determined, could be propaganda) kept the government running and provided propaganda to the Allied cause.

She's fucking terrible compared to the other possible dutch picks, but a saint when compared to the other women.


>catherine de medici

>the low countries in revolt offer her the crown of one of the wealthiest regions in europe, which would mean war vs. an overextended spain

>she refuses because she thinks she can play this to be queen of portugal or some shit


so lets summarize the female leaders

wilhelmina: figurehead that ran a government in exile and did propoganda. Kind of gets a pass

Amanitore: some nigger woman where we have barely any sources on.

Catherine: italian bitch that backstabbed everyone was absolutely powercrazy

Dido: Myth, but whatever we got Gilgamesh so she gets a pass

Elenor of Aquitane: Who?

Gitarja: Queen regent of Mahapajit for 20 ish years. Also gets a pass.

Gorgo: Queen of Sparta sometime. Should've just been the male king. Dunno shit bout the spartans but to me it seems like they weren't very much into having any women rulers.

Kristina: No.

Jadwiga: Seems to be okay. As with all other picks, male leaders have done way more. Gets a pass

Seondok: Very old leader of some korean kingdom. Pass?

Tamar: Ruler of Georgia during a very good, stable period in it's history. Pass.

Tomyris: Myth? Pass, same as with Dido.

Victoria: Pass

So not all of them are that shit of a pick, but i believe that for all of them a male leader that has done more for the civilization that is being represented. But some of them are absolute dogshit that shouldn't be glorified at all, or basically myths.


I'm not swedish, but in my book that bitch is just a traitor to the swedish cause that left the country off worse then when she got it. And then she gave up, and just ran off to rome. Absolute dogshit-tier leader.

You might be surprised. Inheritance laws massively favored women (if a man died in battle his assets went to his wife not his children, and she could remarry and repeat the process) meaning that the Spartan ruling class had a bunch of very wealthy women landowners running around while the men focused on military affairs. Athens in particular thought this was degenerate as fuck and constantly shit on the Spartans for it, but Sparta's military was still top notch so Athens kept their criticism to harsh words most of the time.

ccb86b  No.16136748


Yeah that's true. I'd also say that while women might have been entrenched in the economic aspects of Sparta, literally no one in history has cared more about the Spartan economy than the Spartan military. If you're going to make Sparta a faction you'd think they'd have a military leader.

Probably apocryphal, but here's the quote that got Civ to include Gorgo.

"When asked by a woman from Attica, 'Why are you Spartan women the only ones who can rule men?', she said: 'Because we are also the only ones who give birth to men.'"

df9291  No.16136754


Eleanor of Aquataine isn't a very good pick, considering her son or husbands. She's pretty famous for being a rich heiress who was married to King Louis VII, got an annulment because she only gave birth to daughters, remarried to King Henry II and popped out a ton of sons. She also participated in the 2nd crusade as a hanger-on who petitioned for support. She ended up taking the blame for a major defeat because of her baggage. She was characterized as an amazonian warrior though so that's why she got in, not the fact that she was only famous for fucking up and shitting out kids.

Her son Richard the Lionheart is far superior tbh. I'm surprised you've never heard Eleanor of Aquitaine. She and Joan of Arc were literally the only two figures they ever taught us about medieval europe in Burgerland. Speaking of, Joan of Arc would honestly be a better leader than Eleanor. If only because she has a penis :^)

Maybe they'll add a Hapsburg in a new patch to lead both Austria and the swamp german nation? Perhaps that guy that surrendered to Napoleon? :^) Personally I'd like to see a Boer leader but like that's going to happen.


>citizenship was primarily based on having a certain level of wealth

That's not remotely true. They held a position of WE'RE CONQUERORS. It was our people, with our blood in a hostile, foreign country versus the rest of the world. And they could attack us at any given moment so better be prepared. They never included slaves/hellots in their phalanx because they were for all intents and purposes the enemy their religion prophesied. They did have Perioeci (freemen, non citizen) auxilia but it was too little, too late.


I'd suggest you read into the post Alexander period. The amount of backstabbing, impossible victories against superior odds and stories of people being made and broke on the battlefield is unbelievable.

That is surprisingly realistic about how Brazil would win (stealing and cheating). 10/10 gameplay.


>That in no way disproves my claim. Yes, the Spartans held a great fear of their slaves and serfs revolting, but that has nothing to do with the way they fucked themselves over by making their citizenship so exclusive. By 400 BC there were only about 4000 Spartan males around, and Sparta could never deploy all of them on the battlefield because of the aforementioned fear of a slave uprising.

Romans almost had the same problem, until the Marian reforms basically saved the legions from becoming irrelevant.

Dude, it's the only game where their presence is justified. Whether you like it or not, there were African civilization in the past.

I'd agree with you if they had negros ruling white countries, but unless I'm forgetting something, that still hasn't happened. The negros are limited to representing negro civilizations of the past. Hell, if anything, Civ 6 dialed down the negro count and is subtly showcasing that there isn't a single modern/contemporary negro leader of any worth (compare with Civ 5 where you had Ethiopia, for example).

>None of them ever moved beyond mudhuts or spear-chucking independently, and none ever evolved past stone-age tribal mentality.

I know, but still doesn't mean that they didn't exist and can be put into a game. Don't be such a grumpy racist, anon. We all know that Kongo or the Zulus or the Nubians never amounted to anything in the grand scheme of thing, but historically, they represent something, if not only the name of some spear chuckers that interact with Europeans enough to have their names preserved.

Again, it's pretty funny that this time around they went way back in time to find "worthy" black leaders, basically recognizing that contemporary niggers are a shit. Hell, if they wanted to pander really hard, they could have put Nelson Mandela in the game, because he's the only contemporary nigger leader with some sort of reputation.

Civ 6 is fucked from the get-go. Splitting the tech trees into 2 makes for truly anachronistic clusterfuck. Imagine meeting cities with skyscrapers but its troops are still armed with crossbows. Tech tree being erratic and short (4-6 per era) which mean each eras are very inconsistent in length. Calendar is utterly fucked as in the pacing; science victory even before the year of our Lord is possible with enough luck and autism. Also no epic hugefuck maps, and the map are small af, game is decided early as in whoever shat out lots of settlers and claim all the shit first will win.

It does by semantics. Hellots were the enemy. They were THE threat to keep an eye out for. To suggest they ever gave them arms in anything other than ritual culling/slaughter is sacrilegious by their own standards. Roman term of citizenship is not comparable and was itself a bunch of different things over the ages and the form Roman society as a whole adopted at that specific time.

As I said, they miss the point of UFO in many regards:

- UFO never had a focus on "your dudes". It didn't even have any customization apart from the names. The devs clearly saw the stories about how some rookie did interesting shit or happened to be really lucky and misinterpreted them.

- There was no focus on story either. You gleaned most of the motivation of the aliens from a few sentences after autopsies or other research. The game certainly didn't grind to a halt every few minutes to have random people babble at you. nuCom 1 is bearable but nuCom 2 with the Chosen goes full retard in that regard.

- Obviously, the much larger unit pool. Life as a rookie in UFO was CHEAP. Losing half a dozen people on a mission wasn't a big deal. Losing even one or two people in nuCom can mean the mission fails or even the entire campaign going to shit

On the technical side, again, XCOM2 is the worst offender here. It ran like complete ass, turn times were very long due to the fucking animations and it only got better AFTER the DLC came out. I measured the turn timer in nuCom 1 once where my entire team panicked because one guy got wounded. It took over a MINUTE just to play out the "UUUH AAAHH HUURRRR" responses from my team. Unless you turn off shit like bloom and HDR the game will also look like complete ass but to be fair that's par for the course for modern games.

5215ec  No.16137960


Oh and of course the fact that the devs deliberately shit on efficient strategies. They hated how people were overwatch camping in nuCom1, so they introduced meld, which people often ignored, so they introduced hard mission timers in nuCom2. This sort of nudging is insulting. Especially since people just switch to different tactics to circumvent the "intended" gameplay again anyway.

None of those are black african civilizations. Egypt had two distinct phases and despite having nigger mercs they never were actual niggers.

Mali heavily took from the arabic culture and didn't become a true country until Morocco and their Berbers didn't come a knocking.

Well, you asked for African civilizations, and these civilizations were definitely located in Africa. WE WUZ PHARAOS 'N SHEIT, YO RAYCIST.

But, speaking strictly in game concepts, a "civilization" is more akin to "people" - for example, the real life Zulus would be a civ that got way behind in tech and culture, so England gained a Colonial War casus belli on them and curbstomped their Spearman with Machine Guns.

I know, but at the same time, I fail to see the problem in having African ethnicities as playable civs, specially when not overdone (like, "every single little mudhut tribe is now a civilization!"). Currently in Civ 6 we have, what, three of those? (Nubia, Zulus, and Kongo).

Not remotely true. The Dutch fucked brits with maxim machineguns and french howitzers in the Boer wars but that was significantly later.


It's alright for a couple of games. The new mechanics aren't really all that significant and the revamped strategic resource is more of the same. They pretty much took from Endless Legends and have the same problem; you either have so much ie iron or horses that it's a non issue or you can't find one anywhere on the map when it really counts.

- Roads are broken looks wise. They create crossroads where there should be none

- Barbs are broken, some continents don't have any while sometimes they go full Raging Barbarians

- The Maori AI can't handle picking a place to settle. At all. It picks random 1-tile ice islands.

- The AI can't handle trade but BOY will they spam you with retarded offers each turn

- Barbs spawn quadquiremes immediately , a unit you can't beat early in the game with either slingers or galleys

- Canada, apart from not being a fucking civilization, can't declare surprise wars on city states or other civs, meaning you are more than likely completely boxed in every game

- Map generation is ass, clustering volcanoes and resources for no apparent reason

- The AI will fight you tooth and nail when it comes to diplo victory. The amount of favors you need to win becomes something ridiculous like 30.000

I don't agree with this one. First presumably it's a carebear civilization, second you can declare a "formal war" after denouncing. Yeah, it's like 10 turns but it's still nothing gamechanging. Also you can declare a surprise war; when you park a couple of units at his border and he's not an ally he'll ask you to retreat. Saying no declares an instant surprise war.

The AI also tends to spread like the plague if there's sufficient tundra around.

I think it bears noting that Civ has ALWAYS had a bunch of female leaders, civ 2 litterally had 1 male and female leader per civ and even invented fictional people for some in order to facilitate it.

So i'm skeptical that what people are complaining about now is due to current SJW shit in particular. 6 defintely does have a lot more women seemingly put in for the sake of it then past games (2 aside), but igt's not like it's just women: There's really odd civ and leader choices in general It seems to me like in general they wanted to go with atypical, non-obvious leader and civ picks. There's nothing necessarily wrong with that, the issue is that they still need to deserve it and you can't just pick some obscure leader or civ when there's a objectively better choice.

Like, why Georgia over Byzantium? Why the fuck were the Mapuche added before the Inca? Why the Mapuche at all instead of, you know another ACTUAL urban state based civilizations in the andes alongside the Inca, rather then just a tribe? I don't like the inclsuion of tribal or nomadic civs in general, given the whole point of the series is you start out with a city and a ruler. So I'd cut the Huns, Cree, Scythia, Shoshone, Apache, etc. However, i'm keeping "proto-civilizations" or tribes with particularly notable accomplishments, so the Iroquious (they didn't have urban cities but had a pretty complex goverment), the Celts/Germanic tribes, Scandinavians, the Zulu, Mongols, etc.

So here's what my "ideal" civ roster of 45 civs looks like, trying to balance geographical and cultural representation (For example, latin american civs tend to get cucked out of spots despite having thousands of years of civilization) without giving stuff that doesn't deserve it a spot. Went ahead and added info in spoilers for civs people may not be familar with



Rome (Byzantium represented by Justinian as an alt leader)



Germany (HRE represented via an alt leader)




An Iron-age Scandinavian civ, such as Danes or Norway

Celtic, Germanic, or some other Indo-European group






A Southeast Asian civ, such as Suhkothai or Khmer



>Middle East/North Africa



Persian Empire

Neo-Assyrian Empire

A Bronze age Mesopotamian civ, such as Babylon or Sumer

Abbasid or Ayyubid Caliphate

Ottoman Empire






Gulf coast Conglomerate of Olmec/Epi Olmec, Classic Veracruz, and maybe Totonac/Huastec

>South America




Musica or Colombia








>North America



SW conglomerate of Pueblo, Hohokam, etc





I'm a little unhappy about Byzantium needing to represented via an alt leader rather then it's own civ, but it IS still the roman empire and that's a decent way to represent it even if it arguably deserves to be it's own thing, and I need the spot saved. Some other "honorable mentions" would be Poland (since we need more eastern europe), the Hittites, since there's no antaolian cultures other then the Ottoomans if that counts, the other Indo-European, Southeast asian, Also worh noting that we sadly don't have written records left from the Gulf coast Meso congolorate, Tiwanku, or the Musica, so you'd need to invent a fictional leade (unless for the Gulf one you include the Totonacs and make their captial Cempoala and use Xicomecoatl as the leader) Also I can clarify on who the hell they, the Misssisspians, Pueblo/Hohokam, Purepecha, Mixgec, Chimu, Tiwanku, and Muisca are and why they deserve to be in if anybody wants me to

Anyways if you anons want to help me come up with a list of specific leaders for this, and maybe a total of like 15 alt leaders, that'd be neat.

It's not just the leader choices, those simply compound on the other questionable decisions that make them look like SJW faggots.

Look at the tech quotes, really take a good look. They made damn sure to include women there. Same with great people, made sure you had women represented and damn the logic behind it.

I absolutely despise some of these quotes:

>"Who deserves more credit than the wife of a coal miner?”

>“The four building blocks of the universe are fire, water, gravel and vinyl.”

>“Remember that people break down, too, not just machinery.”

>The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one.”

>“Astronomy’s much more fun when you’re not an astronomer.”

Notice how these are all trying to be "witty" and "funny" but fall flat, or in some cases barely relate to the technology in the first place.

And a women that still attended church, didn't whore herself out, didn't dye her hair or bitch at the patriarchy and wage difference at her second job of washing sheets or some other physical labor, would react to current year SJWs or some alt-right fag with a chip on his shoulder comparing her, her loving family and her soon to be dead husband to said whiners?

I used to want this until I thought about how the transition would work. I quickly realized it wouldn't. It would be like Spore, every stage is a different game, and since it's competitive whoever gets a colony out first wins the space age.

If spacing out means holding your empire on Earth together while investing significant resources on space colonies then it works out like a wonder victory in Age of Empires, ie you win extermination instead because you'll be dog piled if you try. If you can confidantly survive that it means you delayed another victory to play with your food instead of eating it.

What we really need is a game that picks up where a space victory leaves of, a game that mixes elements of ES2, GalCiv and Civ.

Why does first space colony mean a win? If i play civ 5 with an emty continent being the first to land a colony on that continent doesnt do much for me.

What happens once you get to space first? You settle all the best planets and anybody late to space gets few or crappy ones. Getting to space first means you have an economic advantage over everyone else, using that advantage to get the good planets compounds that. Everyone other civilization on Earth is fighting a losing battle. They might as well not exist after a certain point. There's no difference when you reach any endgame content before another player in a 4X game, you beat everyone else over the head with it until you win.

Having the game essentially turn into a different game where you start with a lead over the other players wouldn't be fun. Unless you really mean you want a game like Spore but with a nonsuck space age? How would multiplayer work? Would those cities still matter? Would you build new cities on Earth or the planets you colonize?

Babylonians codified their laws but it was Corpus Iuris Civilis that gave rise to the modern system of law. now, corpus iuris civilis could be argued to be greek in origin, because it was codified in the eastern roman empire, but since it was done by a native latin speaker I'll say it was roman in origin, and besides it's composed mostly of things that are roman in origin anyway.

East Asians in general are obviously much better than niggers, sandniggers, kikes, and spics. However, the 'bugmen' stereotype is based in reality. Additionally, while Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, and some otherse (I know the latter two are SEA, not 'East Asia' specifically) manage to maintain decent civilizations and family struture, morals, etc, China is a blackhole of culture. In every area of human activity except sexual perversion, chinks are just as bad as the kikes.

f3c648  No.16185079


I don't have much to say in the defence of the Chinese though except for the Cultural Revolution (thanks a fucking lot Marx and leftist fucktards). Any semblance of culture and decency was burned along with those irreplaceable ancient historical books in that fire, it is said such when East Asians questions the integrity of the Chinese in general. Also the 'bugmen' culture, yeah, I would put it on the commie influence too. Kind of like Human Hive from Alpha Centauri but in real life.

Any decent Chinese that escape the hell that was the revolution went to Japan, Thailand, HK, Taiwan, etc. And they carried their baggage with them but with time unlike nigs and spics they integrated and those were mostly lost. Only few remains in Chinatown now and most of those still clung to old ways are either carrying too important legacies (medical knowledge, etc.) to discard, or outright mainland Chinese snakeoil merchant spies, or the triads.

Mainland Chinese and overseas Chinese do not count each other kin anymore, and the fastest way to get a lulz/rise out of one is to call them Chinese.

Anon, I meant to reply to this (and to clarify on >>16153511 )days ago, but I never got around to it: I thnk your post here is very logically flawed. here's a tl;dr, I can clarify further upon request, I imagine most people are going to be skeptical of what I say re: conquest of mexico/the americas being up to chance

>Assuming that "significance" even has a meaning when prior to the Age of Exploration,as >>16184819 alludes to, most cultures were still only regionally relevant and as such you can only really measure sigifnicance in terms of sisnrficance in each given region of the world that has complex shit going on (So europe, middle east, south/southeast asia, far east, mesoamerica, andes, and west africa)

>If you just mean "significant to how the world turned out how it did", then logically speaking, every civ in a civ game would be a nation formed in the past 200-300 years with a few exceptions, since obviously events closer to where we are had more of a direct, identifiable role in shaping history play out

>If you DO want to include older historical examples at all, even if you still want to focus on global relvenance rather then local ones (not that that's even nessscarily possible), you run into the problem that at a certain point it becomes impossible to say how impatful something is. It's easy to say the Roman empire was impactful, but any random kingdom in central eurpope during the middle ages and it's actions? It's real;ly not possible to say that it "impacted" more then, say, a random city-state in Mesoamerica or in southeast asia, because any actions they have taken get so diffussed by the chaos of different shit happening and interacting over the following centuries. Any one of them could have done something that randomly buttrfly effect'd a later major world event

In essence, your claim is pretty invalid, and basically amounts to just saying that "they weren't significant to EUROPEAN" history, when as established, europe wasn't globally influential or more advanced then the rest of the world by a huge margin till after they colnizaed the americas: The far east was on par with them, the middle east had onl;y recently starte to fall behind by then, and even in like Mesoamerica they weren't THAT behind as much as people think but more on that later.

Speaking of the Aztec, that's a good example even for the post 1500's launch of europe into it's position of global supermacy, non-european cultures still had big historical influences. The Conquest ogf Mexico was only possible due to a series of flukes and the cooporation of a ton of different Mesoamerican city-states that did most of the fighting and logistical work for the Spanish, and even with that help and smallpox it took them decades, arguably centuries in some spots (the last maya state didn't fall till 1697) to conquer it. The specific diplomatic norms and geopolitical systems in the region played a big role in how that played out how it did with Spanish success and domination, as did the specific histories of certain notable states. It could be argued that a number of said city-states and empires are some of the most infential states in history due to them essentially securing and enabling the colonization of the americas as a whole (which, contrary to what a lot of people think, was not something that would have nessscarily happened to the same extent it did no matter what)

The last one she's at the end of her life, looking firm (and fat but not insanely CHIN like her Civ depiction), and this is her most common depiction and most well known period in history where she did propaganda for the allies to lift dutch spirits under occupation.

To put this in context for burgers,

this is as if George Washington is depicted as a young man in a lumberjack outfit while his face looks so fucked up you barely recognize him.
