    Hey all,

    I suggest that we discuss some interesting twitter updates here.

    EB Twitter


    I'll start:

    Also writing a description for a nex province, with a great ancient capital and an as ancient and magnificent city as perm. fort. - Moros
    Which province would this be about? Hayastan?


    Oh and the script for the Gaza campaign seems te be completed, maybe a release isn't that far away?

    My first instinct is that Seleukia is the great ancient capital and Babylon is the magnificent city and permanent fort. But that's just a guess.

    Babylon is already a seperate province in EB so its probably not that unless they're making big changes to the province map.

    All i can guess is that it's in the eastern part of the map, not good reason why just feel it is, maybe Susa or Baktra.

    Making saba more interesting! :o -Moros
    Yay!

    They're clearly changing a lot from EB I, so why not the campaign map? Making Babylon a permanent fort makes sense (most of its population had been moved to Seleukia by the start date, and it's right next to Seleukia), and it fits the criteria- great capital and ancient city- perfectly.

    But Seleukia isn't very ancient in the eyes of the ancients themselves. In 272 BC it was only 33 year old city, being founded in 305 BC.

    They haven't moved the start date so the only changes to the map would be from correcting inaccuracies or where the new PSF system represents reality better (which would make sense with Babylon now that you mention it). From what I've heard so far provinces in Iberia and the north coast of the black sea were going to be changed.

    Making Babylon a permanent fort makes sense (most of its population had been moved to Seleukia by the start date, and it's right next to Seleukia), and it fits the criteria- great capital and ancient city- perfectly.
    Depends on whether "ancient" means ancient by modern standards or by 272bc standards but this is probably just me having the wrong mindset when reading it

    Then again the team must have had a good reason for giving Babylon a separate province in the first place so who knows

    I don't think it's about Mesopotamia Bobbin because it says:

    with a great ancient capital and an as ancient and magnificent city as perm. fort.
    I can understand why you could see Seleukeia as an ancient city, but it can't be viewed as ancient as Babylon.

    Which also means that it can't mean Baktra and Alexandria-Oxiana.

    I say EB should stay away from Twitter. Really there is nothing I hate more in the world. (Except bloody Calgary...)

    Gah, how did you manage to find such piece of...well garbage?!

    I see, but I agree with you. Would they prefer to wait 3-4 months for a preview without knowing if some progress is done or being kept updated time... I personally would prefer the second.
