The hype is almost too good...

Crossing fingers that the pre-release hype meets reality....  :dreamer:
"Baseball's Sad Lexicon" - 1910

These are the saddest of possible words:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
      Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
      Making a Giant hit into a double—
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”

"Tinker to Evers to Chance"
"where doubles go to die"

These three players helped the Cubs win four National League championships and two World Series from 1906 to 1910.

I hope my previews aren’t too hype heavy. Tried to capture as many sides of this release as I could. It’s a big game.

The preview is great.

What is so impressive is that each nation plays so differently. I saw  You Tube run through as Sarmatia this morning ...totally different challenge to Pontus and a nation I never considered playing until I saw its set up.

Something else interesting I have noticed - there is no option to play as Persia in the main campaign. Maybe I missed them listed in that gigantic list, or maybe they are going by some other historical name?

Persia is not on the map at start, that space occupied by the Seleucids. :)  Persia can (and often does) appear as a new faction if Seleucids can't hold themselves together.

You can switch to controlling any faction on the map during a (single player) game, so you can take over them once they appear, if you so desire.

Nice write up of the preview.

The loin moistening is strong with this one.

^You are too kind. And kind of gross. Well done!!

That makes sense about Persia. Taking over a rump Persia, rising again...that could be epic.

There is a let's play on you tube of Judea, I think by grey hunter, that has a Seleucid civil war in which Persia reappears.
That let's play also has the Blemeyes pop up as well and a bunch of factions in anatolia/mid east when Antigonids go through a bad patch.

I can see myself making a lot of saves when these nations pop up so I can play through as them as well.
