I like Amplitude's games, but dislike that they were acquired by Sega. I see it like this though: the last Civ game where you could play as a politically-incorrect despicable bastard, was IV, where you could be Stalin or Mao. Amplitude have set Humankind up to attract exactly those of us who want to be Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Pinochett, Franco, Pol Pot and Bill Clinton. What did they do? Handed out perma-bans for spicy comments on Steam and elsewhere, including people defending their ad.

Like Spore, 90% of the playerbase of Humankind are going to want to play as dicks and Amplitude are going to fuck themselves over with censorship.
>>
>>433579
Okay fine I'll bite this hook.

Even if a game that allows one to roleplay as a massive piece of shit doesn't mean they should welcome human garbage whose power fantasy is to be a massive piece of shit into the community. Do you recognize the difference? I think you do.

Im a fanboy of amplitude so it will probably be great for me

>>
>>433350
It has a potential to dethrone Civ 6 as the worst Civ game made. Forget the "muh politics" bait-posting (congrats, /pol/tards, for giving this shit free marketing). The actual problem is this is a game by Amplitude. Their main thing is settings, not actual strategies or game mechanics, not to mention any sort of game balance. Them doing what's basically a Civ clone, and without any sort of lore to throw at the game or wacky visuals to make it interesting means Humanity is still guaranteed to suffer from their subpar gameplay, while not having a single redeeming factor in form of Endless lore for factions.

I agree with everything you said but is being owned by Sega really relevant?

Pretty sure they'd end up SJW freaks regardless of who owned them or if they stayed independent. They're a western european game dev (French if I'm not mistaken). I can't name a single western EU game developer that isn't cucked as fuck. They're doomed from the beginning.

pretty good, I don't get how many people are triggered over it supposedly being SJW when Amplitude have shown themselves to be pretty cool
I mean, their previous games have no issue mentioning or joking about genocide in EL and ES, fat titties and most things western kinds of devs shy away from
as for the game, I suspect it will have issues at launch like every game they put out, probably best to wait for launch and see for yourself
however, for their presentation, aesthetic and soundtrack I imagine they'll keep the same gold standard like previously
>>
I get the vibe like it's gonna be bad, turning their back on the Legend setting for something pozzed doesn't seem like a good idea. You can't do a realistic setting in 2021 without it either being globohomo propaganda or getting cancelled.

It's from Amplitude, so what else you expect that mediocre base game without any sort of thought put into core mechanics and unplayable release state, followerd by 1d4+1 DLCs in half-year intervals full of gimmicks and power creep?

Their gimmick is that you change culture once per age. That's not really enough to set it out from the crowd. Their marketing campaign consists of virtue signaling and revealing their cultures. Like wow it's literally nothing, it doesn't inspire much confidence. Hard pass.

I'd say they have brilliant marketing. Why? Because we are talking about this game at all, despite it being a sub-par Civ clone, simply because they've successfully baited people with their advertising.
Remember: the purpose of marketing is rise awarness of the product and create buzz about it. Given their budget and what they are selling, it's a massive marketing success, given how by now they've run out of campaign funds, but people still discuss it.
And all of this, because they've put a blue-haired black girl in their adds. That's the 1984-tier marketing for Apple back in the day in terms of how absurdly simple and cheap, yet effective it is.
>>
>>435058
How is that any different from their previous games?
>>
>>435058
>>game has various terrain height levels, not just "this tile is a hell" type shit
SMAC had that 21 years ago, sup, newfag

Literally a thing since Civ 1
>oh yeah it also has a tactical battle system
If it's going to be the reskin of EL combat, HARD pass
>game has a dynamic ideology mechanic
So... like all Civs since Civ 4, 16 years ago? Not to mention the fuckload of mods for that?

You were saying something about being big dumb? It's an Amplitude game, so it's by default a repack of mechanics done by someone else into a "pretty" graphic set. There is nothing unique about it, while >>435072 is correct: the whole "hurr durr" aspect of the game is carefully crafted just to create extra buzz around what amounts to be a shitty Civ heartbreaker, just like ES is shitty MoO heartbreaker and EL was a VERY poorly done AoW3 clone (reminder they've changed their goals and mechanics half-way through development when they've saw AoW3 presentations)
It's a hatchet job by a hatchet company, nothing new under the sun. Except this time they've pulled successful marketing, so there is an illusion of being "next big thing".
>>
>>435068
I don't know any videos that cover it, but I'll tell you what I could gather from when I played the demo a couple of months ago.
There's a bunch of ideological tenants (there's like 25 of them or something) that each empire has that unlock once certain conditions are met. You get to make a choice in an event that determines how radical you are in that certain tenant as well as in-game actions. It becomes part of your cultural identity, and the similarities or differences between 2 different cultures effect relations with that empire. With the cultural influence mechanic, an empire with a "stronger" culture can influence yours, and force you to either adopt a certain tenant or suffer some unhappiness. I think the strength of a culture is somehow determined by the amount of population, but I'm not entirely sure.
>>
>>435072
Wrong, we're talking about it because someone made a thread on it, which is guaranteed hits on a board like this. And the purpose of marketing is to sell games. Posters remarking how featureless and empty marketing makes them believe the game is going to be shit contributes almost nothing to sales. Raise awareness? What kind of idiot will think that is an aim in itself?
>>
>>435079
I think your analysis of these game features is extremely disingenuous. The nature of these features is obviously different from previous games, and the terrain example specifically, offers greater depth than any civ game or civ-styled game i've ever seen in the past decade. The combat specifically has an entirely different feel from EL despite its mechanical similarities. I recommend watching a video about it.

You're kidding me, or yourself now?
Because in this bit
>than any civ game or civ-styled game i've ever seen in the past decade
You essentially said "I don't play 4X at all, this will be my first"
I recommend realising the kind of well and hard-earned reputation this studio has. And looking closely at the presented mechanics, rather than focusing on surface-level gimmic aspect of them.
Because either you are genuinely too stupid to know better, or are arguing deliberately with bad faith here. Either way, don't.
>>
>>435090
Consider this:
I'm only aware this game exists because of the "negative feed". I had to spend my time on my own to find what the game is, why people are so triggered and even find premiere date in the process. Without that negative buzz, I woudn't even know that game exists, as I'm not following releases by default and grand majority of players don't do that. Instead, clickbait gets you attention and gets you interest. Why do I even need to explain something this basic? Or you are one of those types still in denial that /v/ sperg-out is the very reason why an internet nobody became a household name and an UN spokeperson?
>>
>>435103
lol. Imagine being a real person and actually doing this? Man, you shills are getting pretty desperate. You do realize when people see the same thing on the top of catalog they just assume it's a lot of shitposting, right? Your meaningless platitudes hold no water with actual people who don't work in the industry.
>>
>>435099
Marketing doesn't work so well on smart people. But it works very well on dumb people. Dumb people will check out shit like Steam reviews, see one million "OMG! I JIZZED MY PANTS PLAYING IT!" reviews and forget anything bad they heard about it.
So basically any publicity, good or bad, which puts the game title inside their heads, leads them to shill overload review sites, like Steam, is good.

>>
>>435106
The fuck you are even on? If you didn't notice (which you clearly didn't), I'm taking a dump on this game.

>>435112
Marketing isn't designed to appeal to "smart" people. It's designed to get buzz going and make idiots consume your product without asking any questions. Bonus points if your marketing will make them feel good about themselves.
Why do I need to keep explaining bare-bone basics like it's some sort of arcane knowledge?

>>435157
Nta, but how hard is to grasp his very blatant "Congrats on taking a stupid bait marketing with blue-hired black chick and having a meltdown about it" mockery of your non-existing intellect?
>>
>>435112
Here, in idiot-friendly terms:
>Company makes an ad
>Some people see the ad
>They start talking about the ad
>People now actively seek to see the ad
>They keep discussing the ad
>More people get familiar with the ad, and do so on their own
>Product becomes well-knowns
And before you go on "b-but the marketing is bad": says you. The actual target of the ad will still buy the game, what your buzz is doing is making sure more people become aware of this game existing at all. Spergs who will sperg about the ad were never a target, but they are actively creating a counter-reactions of OTHER spergs, who gonna buy the game solely to spite the first group or because they find it woke or whatever. It's a win-win.
And you can't even wrap your head around something this simple, you "smart" person
>>
>>435187
Well, to take a recent example, they tried to shut down leaks of TLOU2 because of all the negative publicity and it clearly depressed sales, not increased it, despite the stratospheric amounts of publicity. Just because lazy advertising execs like to say something doesn't make it true.

>>435193
It's not like we can do anything about the shills, they'll happily keep on page 1 their thread with their shilling-optimized OP image for months. All we can do is sage, hit bump limit and give our honest impressions, that it looks like a bland piece of shit with nothing going for it.
>>
>>433931
>CA
>Relic
>Amplitude
When Sega acquired each of these in whole(full control of CA started just as Empire went into development), that's round about the point they stopped caring about their own fans. CA's Mike Simpson even started off his miserable blog-post explaining the state of Empire by declaring that "In many ways, Sega are our most important customer" as the reason why Empire was released before it was ready. Sega refused to budge from the February 2009 release. Relic got acquired after THQ collapsed, and that's when DoW2: Retribution had six different pre-order packs, one for each race. Relic would kill the franchise for good with DoW3. Amplitude had put out mediocre and outsourced DLC for ES1 and EL before, but it's only after the Sega acquisition that EL2 actually allows for the outsourced DLC to break the whole balance of the game.

Sega is where strategy developers go to get hollowed-out.

>>435361
Because like so many people pointed out, the game is deliberately marketed in a way to trigger both the SJW and /pol/tard crowds. The sales are going to be done still predominately by that small group that buys 4X games, but the marketing actively seeks to create a shitstorm, in some deluded idea that if there is no such thing as bad publicity, then raging shitstorm is great. And we will get the blunt of that shitstorm, since this is 4chan and a board specific to strategies. Thus rather than /v/ going shittier, we will be the dumping ground for about a month or two after the game premieres.

Daily reminder that the point of being in game dev, especially as a studio, is to make money. Pretending otherwise is dishonest. You realise nobody forced any of those studios to became subsidiaries... right? They weren't held at a gunpoint to sell their control package. They did so willingly, to make money. Them then playing a victim of this somehow being fault of the publisher they are "forced" to deliver games is just flat-out dishonest, playing a victim, while being a perpetrator

It's reverse. Varva started to brag about it and it was... pretty much everyone, including his own studio, asking if he's fucking retarded, or just starved for attention. He eventually shut up once he realied this is causing a negative reaction from people that were supporting his game so far, since they felt like treated like morons by his.

It’s a little ridiculous that it’s controversial to depict medieval Bohemia without having Tyrone Biggins holding his crossbow sideways and grabbing his dick.

Only one of those is politically relevant in [Current Year] and that's Victoria, because in case you noticed; Britain is currently having a mini-culture war about the glories and disgraces of our empire. No one cares about Catholic persecution, so we can still have Elizabeth. But because of the Bengali famine we won't see Churchill in future. Because of the opium wars, looting of India and Irish potato famine, we won't see Victoria again; she's only in VI now because she was already. Agreed that Firaxis try to avoid controversy, but there's no point: anyone already in their games could be post-humorously cancelled any time.

Clearly you do not have Huguenot family, de Medici is loathed and reviled to this day.

Apparently it's something you morons keep missing, always fawning about "muh artistic value" and "muh pet project", and then bitching hard about corporates trumping those poor artistic souls.
It's fucking boring.

He was talking about England, anon. Nobody there gives a single fuck about treating Catholics like cattle, because for past 400+ years, the most definitive things about English and then British culture was "hahaha, check out, papists!"

The fuck is this shit?
Representation my fucking ass. Imagine wanting to play as all the eras of Ethiopia or any other African nation, but you get cucked into only playing one and then being forced to evolve into some completely other fucking different culture. Gee that sure is progressive despite the fact it's showing minority culture being replaced by majority culture. Wow, truly fucking progressive, not oppressive in the fucking slightest.

So is this basically a CIV knock-off?

You are exactly the type of person who the trailer targeted to piss off. All they had to do was put a black person in it.

Well I've yet to see the 'companies make ze money' drones flesh-out how exactly it's even relevant. The theory is that companies putting out quality products should do better than companies that don't: so responding to lapses in quality with 'companies exist to make money' sound either anti-capitalist, or the morons spouting it are confused.

maybe after it's released the poltards will find something else to be angry about and we'll be able to have threads about it without their constant sperging, we'll see

What you just described is literal fucking colonialisation. Imagine starting off as Mali and losing your culture and becoming a European one. It's fucking illogical and kinda fucking racist. Let's not even talk about the inverse, starting off as European and then becoming Japanese, I can only see fucking weebs enjoying something like this.
>he's mad that african civilizations are in there at all
I am North African you tard. And I'd be fuming if I got a Berber civ and my only option is to become fucking French. Considering my Ethnogroup's history, that's literal fucking colonization.
>imagine hating fun this much
You have to fucking hate fun if you don't wanna play as a futuristic Ethiopia that keeps it's culture instead of being assimilated and turned into a European one. Fuck you. The draw of Civ is to play as dead Civilizations and pretending they can become futuristic superpowers through your sheer skills. You're removing that fucking feature and you're killing fun for both minorities and normal players in the name of "inclusivity" (which ironically it's inclusive at al)

I am also suspecting you're baiting, because there's no fucking way someone like you could be retarded enough to defend a system that is basically a flowerier version of colonization

Play Civ 4 with mods or Civ V with mods.

Like not having that achievement would have made any difference.

Despite Amplitude becoming increasingly weird, I will probably will pick up Humankind when there's a 50% reduction in a Steam sale, and I will play as Bill 'The Thrill' Clinton.
