Colombia First Impressions - Civilization VI Frontier Pass

Edit: I pulled an Elon Musk with the first title, sorry lol

    well , this is nice. As a colombian guy , i can say : " Cool " . the " llaneros " are called " Lanceros " . Would be nice if they represent the "Batalla del Pienta" here in Santander- Charala. Any way... cool :)

    Just blatantly overpowered in every way to me and not particularly interesting from a design perspective. The +1 movement alone is an insane bonus but all these things together is just crazy. I still feel like Macedon is the only really interestingly designed domination civ. Either way this is just too strong, you should just be able to annihilate whichever neighbour you decide to attack and then easily snowball to victory. Not much of a challenge involved

    <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="163">2:43</a> you can have 6 units in the inner circle, but it reaches 2 tiles, so max 6 + 12 = 18 units can have this effect :) at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="250">4:10</a> you can see llaneros base strength is 62, just like cavalry cavalry maintenance is 5 gold, so llaneros will be 3 or 4 i guess

    Hmm. Between the domination potential of this civ, and the scientific potential of the Maya, anyone else wary of power creep? Then again, they are a very responsive development team, so if it does happen I imagine it would not be long before balance is restored.

    I am Colombian and I can say the following: 1. The haciendas mechanic is spot on of the Colombian culture. Even today, the concept of the Hacienda or Finca being a rural state you own to retreat to the countryside is what we call the "Colombian dream". 2. I cannot identify the music by name, but it sounds like traditional Colombian Aristocrat Ballroom music of the era. It souund really Colombian. 3. The Comandante General unit is also spot on. Back during the Liberation war (Called the "Campaña Admirable") Bolivar rellied heavily in His field Marshals, generals and Lieutenants and most of them became National Heroes as big as Bolivar in Colombia and Venezuela. So, Along with Bolivar, Santander, Marshall Sucre, Urdaneta, Paez, General Rondon, Anzoategui, Miranda and others we consider them as our "Forefathers" if you will. 4. The unic unit is kind of funny. I think they were aiming for the LANCERO ("Spearmans"). The Lanceros are mythical figures of the liberation campaing. You see, They where peasants from ther LLanos region (That is why the unic unic is called "Llaneros", but not all llaneros where fighters) that where brave mounted Spearmans and fought without saddles on big horses and some say they fought even naked on very cold weather. They where basically a Levy mounted unit that proved to be incredible effective because of their thoughtness and bravery. The Legend/History says that 15 Lanceros (commanded by general Juan José Rondon) single handledly turned around the most Decisive battle fo the campaing (The battle of Vargas Swamp), with a glorious charge that broke the Spanish infantry and allowed the Main Bolivar's Army to regroup. The llanos region is also the birthplace of a very authentic folcloric music very traditional both in Colombia an Venezuela (The llanos region is Shared between both "Brother Countries", as we called ourserves) so they mixed both things together and we got a funny "Musical mounted warrior" armed with a guitar, lol. But to clarify, this unit is based on the Lancero, whe didn't fight the independence war with guitars lol. (As a final fun fact: Colombian Soldiers are still called "Lanceros")

    Maybe Columbia won’t be able to recruit great generals much like the maori can’t get great writers.

  23. Jonathan Fitch

    Jonathan Fitch8 วันที่ผ่านมา

    Imagine Bolivar with Oligarchy/Fascism, or using the Logistics/Maneuver policies. In fact, a great build would be to rush Maneuver & Oligarchy while spamming light cavalry, then switching to a Theocracy while saving up your faith, and using the Mercenaries policy so you can upgrade your cavalry horde to your UU and buy them outright with faith the instant you unlock them (beelining the tech of course), and use Fascism with Wars of Religion policy to mop up. 😈

    I wonder if the movement speed buff would actually make Colombia a B-tier civ at religion. Getting the free movement without having to use one of the tenets of a religion for speed buff to religious units would make it a better than the average no-bonus-to-religion civ. Also, you can promote apostles and move them in the same turn. Plus, the -30 hp ability works on religious units, which could be great at stopping one of those waves of apostles into your lands, or taking out a holy city filled with them.

  30. IWubYooz

    IWubYooz8 วันที่ผ่านมา

    +1 move to all units and units not taking any movement cost to promote sounds like something I’d suggest all civs get and the game would feel much better. That’s how I know it’ll be good.

    In my opinion, one of the strongest Civs is Indonesia because of its specialist tile build. It offers one housing, production, food (and it is the housing that is a really big deal) but can only be placed next to sea bonus, luxury or strategic tiles. This one seems stronger because it gets farming-like bonuses for adjacency as well as impacting neighbouring plantations, and has almost no placement restrictions. I guess the question boils down to: how early in the game does it appear?

  47. Zach Pierce

    Zach Pierce9 วันที่ผ่านมา

  48. Jonathan Fitch

    That could actually be really powerful. Completing trade routes faster means establishing trading posts sooner extending your trade routes farther to newer are more lucrative cities before anyone else.

    This honestly feels like power creep. Easily the best dom civ if it works as it seems, and the extra movement could really help in literally every facet of building your empire. Idk, it feels too strong to me.

  63. Anthony Ridgway

    Anthony Ridgway8 วันที่ผ่านมา

    @Lukas Boreisis yeah, no. +1 movement in early game is HUGE. That means way faster scouting, makes the tactics of combat much easier (archers kiting melee will now be extremely viable), and your settlers can go out and settle a turn or two or even three more quickly. Each of those independently isn't a big deal, but all of them combined will snowball into a very big early advantage.

  64. Anne Arcyi

    Anne Arcyi8 วันที่ผ่านมา

    @Lukas Boreisis but why? isn't +1 movement for all units and the whole game very powerful from beginning?!?

    By them I refer to the non Spanish speakers (mostly English speakers) who would refer to the country between Venezuela and Ecuador as Columbia. The official name of the country is Republic of Colombia, yeah... so what? Language is just a tool to convey a meaning, we KNOW what they meant, and the writing they opted to use, indeed, refers to the exact same root from which the official spelling chosen by Colombian authorities derivates. To top it off, unlike Spanish, English isn’t regulated by a central institution that decides what is or isn’t correct, so... since the correct English is whatever most of those who speak the language on a daily basis consider correct... fighting over common spellings is just dumb.

    @Rafael Nieves I'm not sure who do you mean when you're talking about "them", you're the only one in this thread insisting that we rename Colombia as Columbia.


    ANCANEITOR8 วันที่ผ่านมา

    @Rafael Nieves The official name of the country, in English, its still 'Colombia'. Calling it 'Columbia' its just a misspell originated by the similarities with the name of the other region(s) in North America (i'm not aware if there's another region in the word where that name is used).
