I'm sure you're all excited! What are you hoping for with this DLC?
>>911797>Pozzed version of Civ>First DLC is about niggersLol
The only thing I like in this game is making a continent-spanning city, it's like playing SimCity if you had (more) brain damage, in that it's fun to zoom out and look at it. Is the game still broken to the extent that you cannot be attacked if you place districts on all hexes enemy soldiers could land on?
>>911903considering the relation between the harvard poz and the french revolution it's still entirely fitting
>>911797Blacks in Africa, I don't see the issue. We need more actual African shit (as opposed to American mutt shit) in games.The price is another matter however. It's obscene for what you get. There should be twice as many cultures at least. Although it's pretty obvious they ran out of ideas quickly. Nigeria boosts oil? Really? That's the culture famous for oil?I think that's the real reason Africa was first. Do anyone else and they'd be left with nothing.
>>911797Africa has culture?
>>911926More than you, chud
>>911797that looks like wakanda not africa
>>911903French loving black people has been a meme for centuries retard, way before america, I really wish I could find the one that Says “the future of France” or some shit and it has white people in a circus dancing for Africans
CHUD BROSWe are gonna get BTFO with this DLC WTF DO WE DO?
>>911797the game has potential, but for now it's shit and feels empty>>911893this
>>911797You can't make this shit up
>>911911i also hate how when they make "african packs" they dont include north africa with berbers and stuffafrica is more diverse than what americans think it angers met berber
>>911971Don't worry you will be included in the Arab DLC
>>911971Here's some perspective for ya my little angry African buddy Your country will never make a good videogame.
>>911975i am so mad about this our culture is literally erased by arabs and we get included as just another flavor of "arabic culture">>911979maybe 100 years from now
>>911797Holy fuck. I was giving the devs the benefit of the doubt about how pozzed they are, until now.The first DLC of a game about the greatest achievements and empires of humans is about the one continent where humans did jack shit since the bronze age.
>>911982I can feel your pain. But in modern times Africa has become synonymous with Niggers. Maybe one day you will get the recognition you deserve.
>>911797>Stop saying it's woke trah just because it has black guy on the cover.>Stop saying it's a woke trash just because there's a black queen ruling in the Europe in the cinemartic trailer.>First DLC is "Cultres of Africa".You can't make this shit up. It's like they want us to laught at them.
>>911903Dosh Lords. Also what the fuck is Kapaku?
>>911797>game is called HUMANKIND>non-human on the cover
>>912009They are a DLC faction.https://youtu.be/5MfKfrDVDMEhttps://youtu.be/_Elcu0LSlwEThey remind me of Bionicle so they are cool
>>912006there is a black guy on the cover as well as a person of every racethe cinematic is supposed to show how you can mix and mash history and cultures in your own sandboxfirst dlc being africa is because they are the most lacking in the game currentlythe game sucks because it feels empty, you need to grow up
>>911797anyone who who be mad about this already didn't buy it because of the black scientist holding hands with the viking chick on the coverand seeing as almost no one plays this piece of shit already I doubt theyll get a lot of buys from the people who already wasted their money on it. the core gameplay loop is not very fun.
>>912032let me dream anon, it has potential
>>912029Blacks were centerpiece of every promotion this game had. Wake up anon.
>getting that riled up over promotional materialYou got brain damage
>>912039DLC is not promotional material.
>>912041Except maybe Nigerians the new cultures look solid and no memes as far as I can see.
>>912052agreed>>912037this isn't your hugbox, if you want autism about culture wars and whatnot you have a board dedicated to thatthis is a board about the game and its gameplay
>>912060>this isn't your hugboxNeither is yours. If you don't like it you can leave anytime.
>>912064you told me to "wake up anon" assuming i give a flying shit about your autistic conspiraciesi do not, and neither am i white nor american so you can shove your opinion down your asshole or take it somewhere else
>>912060>this is a board about the game and its gameplayThere's nothing to talk about then. Typical AAA trash. Turn based game desyncs in multiplayer. Civs are completely unbalanced and have always objectively correct choices. You couldn't conquer a city island at game launch (don't know about now, don't care). The only notable thing about the game is niggers on the cover, so it's natural anons will talk about that and nothing else.
>>912065What conspiracy? You can see that blacks were centerpeice of promotion yourself. It's no secret.Also, why did you even enter this thread if you don't want to discuss the DLC.It seems to me it is you who should go somewhere else.
>>912068it had some going for it before release, everyone was hyped for it till it came out then we realized the gameplay actually sucks and doesnt match the hype at all>>912078you getting angry about black people in video games is not discussing the DLC or the game
>game is called humankind>dlc is about non-humans?
>>912060>this is a board about the game and its gameplayIt's by far Amplitude's worst game. This does literally nothing to fix that at a premium price. That's it, that's all there is to say.
>>912115prettty much, no need to sperg out and turn this into pol lite
>>912096But black people are the whole point of this DLC.
>Cultures of ApefricaYou gotta be kidding me
>We wuz Wakanda and shieet!What culture is this supposed to represent?Those buildings look like something whitey would build if we're being honest.
>>912170That's because it's colonial style. With a hint of Arabian. With the quasi-priest clothing I think it's Ethiopia.
>>912185>colonial styleAka designed and built by whitey.>EthiopiaWhile posting a house built on the other side of the continent in South Africa, a place with lots of whiteys.Huh funny that.
>>912216>Aka designed and built by whitey.>Ethiopia>WhiteyItalians arent white anon
>>911797More importantly, did they already fix the base game problems? I dont care if they do dlc, as long as the devs get their priorities straight.
>>911797>Release unfinished game>Release DLC about Wakanda>If anyone complains call them racistNot even EA is this fucking blatant.
>>911797What's the fucking point?The absolute last thing this game needs is more civs to pick from.
>>912267>What's the fucking point?To promote certain agenda.
>>912216are you retarded? genuine questionthe buildings are an ethiopian style, the anon above is retarded too it has nothing to do with colonialism
>>912334It was built by Menelik II at the turn of the century. At the time when Ethiopia tried to rapidly modernize copying western Europe.It is Ethiopian architecture but there can be no doubt that they were trying to immitate European architecture of that time. There's nothing "Ethiopian" about it, Also it's one a kind thing, it's not a part of long developing architectural heritage (unlike their rock chrches). It's more like those "chinese" pavilions that European aristocracy built in their gardens during the 19th century.
>African>CultureTop kek, the only places that were cultured are North Africans and they aren't even ethnic Africans.Its like the meme that is the native americans and the leftist created "First Nations" bullshit.>>911940>I really wish I could find the one that Says “the future of France” or some shit and it has white people in a circus dancing for AfricansHere you goThe national socialists predicted it correctly.
>>912429Lmao. It didn't even take 100 years.
>>911797NIGGERS!?IN MY VIDEO GAMES!?
>>912429the actual negroes are considerably worse dressed and behaved, i'll note
>>912429>ethnic AfricansThere's no such thing as an "ethnic African". Just refer to them as sub-saharan Africans if you're referring to nigs.
>>911982>>911971>North AfricaBut Garamantes in this pack are North Africans.
>>912459"bantu" is also a useful term
>>912466bantu excludes east africans, bushmen, and pygmies though
>>911797>release game>people complain it has too many black people in it>release dlc that adds more black peoplelmfao
>>911809They could have made it less obvious
>>912463This. And the garamantes were berbers. Swahili and Masai lmao, literally tribal stuff. I'll give a pass for the Bantu because they were in Rise of Nations tho.
No one is going to buy this DLC.
>>912558>Swahili and Masai lmao, literally tribal stuff.Masai are just a bunch of goatfuckers but weren't Swahili some sort of merchant jews?
>>911797*smacks lips profusely*HOLD UPUHHSO YOU BE SAYINAYO SO YOU BE FINNA SAYIN THATUHHHHOL UP HOL UP LEMME CALL THE SQUADAYO YOU BE SAYIN....THAT WEWUZKANGZ
>>912595I think you're right, I don't know much about east african history, but they must be the ones that sold slaves to the Arabs lul
imagine if the romans had sailed round to the slave coastitaly would have the same demographics as Mississippi
>useful education tool to teach the politically correct narrative>This will help us fight racism!When will playing Humankind become part of the curriculum at public schools? Its a genius move. Release a game that would be loved by the people running the education systems. Guaranteed sales to a captive audience.
Will we ever get the likes of him again?
>>912226Well technically only Germans are but now its a term for all europeans.
wtf you copied my post

>>912659Who are you replying to?
>>911797>ITT: retards know nothing about history pretend that barbarians are civilizedAfrica was based in antiquity, Numidian cavalrymen were the best light cavalry in the world. Nubian archers were the best in the world, and they invented the longbow over a 1000 years before the Welsh did. Egypt was also very well developed. Sub-Saharan kingdoms also had a lot going for them. The Europeans in this thread are just mad because they are still a bunch of barbarians who can only destroy civilization. See both Roman Empires, the Bronze Age Collapse, the conquest of Africa, the destruction of India, the end of the great Chinese Empire, the colonization of both Americas, and the ruining of Arabia. No culture has been so destructive on the human race, than the Europeans.
Do Europeans really think sub Saharan Africans are white? And white isn’t a scale to be “judged on” if you are of 100% European blood you are white. There is no further discussion on the subject and I will not tolerate med vs nord (((autism)))
>>912697>Sami are now white
>>912694You forget wakanda and flying pyramids my nigga
Not to derail this thread but was the central gimmick to humankind any good or what? I never hear anyone talk about the civ-switching mechanic.
>>912720If they are are a combination of these three peoples and genetically cluster with Europeans yes, if the answer is no, then no. It’s not that complicated. Only (((leftists))) try to argue that “white” isn’t a race,
>>911971Kys you savage shitskin
>>911797>Now you can build huds made of literal shitOHHH GREAT, THAT'S HECKIN BASEDINOOO
>>911982Hi anon, can you tell me if picrel looks like a berber
>>911797There were four truly black African cultures that mattered: songhai, mali, kush, and ghana. Why do you never see these? Why do they we wuz cultures they never had?
>>912969>Why do you never see these?Because they're already in the game. Ditto for Kush.
>>912755It’s the oppositeThey have clays pots therefore they aren’t a peopleOnly north sentinel has an ethnic group
>>912739Does the fact of advanced African cultures existing really trigger you this hard?
>>912969what about benin :D
>>911971Age of Empires got it right by including not just Berbers but Portuguese as well. >>912466Bantu is linguistic and only partly ethnic. West Africans are obviously closely related in race and language but not Bantu specifically. East and South African Bantus mixed with indigenes to varying degrees when they migrated in. There's groups like the Tutsi that are predominantly non-Bantu in ancestry but speak a Bantu language. etc. etc.
>>912969>No Mutapabased retard
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49pp0PAf4lU>the freaking Bantu expansion>"we decide to potray this as a peaceful expansion">"their societal organization allows them to mingle with indigenous population">trait is called Homogynous AmalgamationWhere the hell is this hakuna matata, peace loving, past time erasure came from? Not even a single mention of their iron usage that give them an edge, or how'd they drove away the competition so bad they turned into jungle pygmies. They can potray these as them being dominant, powerful, etc, but they just bury it under empty leftist lie about how beautiful their culture are.It's fucking weird.
>>913152Also, this style of Civ presentation always sickens me with how market-savvy they are, and its even more pathetic since Humankind just looks like they blatantly copy it.They even add their own trademarked jingle, oh god ahahaha.>How far will you push Humankind(tm)?
>>913020>fact of advanced African cultures>fact>adcanced African culturesJust go back to resetera.
>>912755This is interesting. Where can I find more info on this?
>>913192>I am retarded the postYou should read a book, you'll probably learn a lot considering how little you know.
>>913199Are you unironically braindead or just baiting?
>>913199Those books will be gone the moment the scholars with revolutionary chip on the shoulder will go.Once wewuzing will be out, we will give attention to other pseudo science, like giving phrenology a spin again.
>>913206Just read it chud.
>>911797>game underperforms>publisher releases DLC full of panderingIt means they've written off the game as a loss, what's so hard to understand?
>>911797>cultures of Africa>image contains purely colonial architecture and clothingYeah, that’s some awesome African culture they got going on there
>>913213>Russian thinks he dictates anything but the heat of his own brazier in his post-communist bunkerAll Slavic IPs should be banned from 4chan
>>912694>Nubian archers were the best in the worlddidn't the Nubians lose to the Egyptians?
>>913297russians are not slavs they are asian mongrels and not even european
Remember that Spain will never be Germanic hans
noooooooooo spain is 100% german because 500 goths migrated there 1600 years ago!
>>913152Not weird at all. It makes perfect sense from a strategic point of view. Clausewitz was quite right. "War is the continuation of politics by other means." Conversely that means we are always engaged in war, just that its not always shooting bullets or arrows at each other. Wars aren't just fought between nations but also by ideologies, classes, religions, factions, basically anyone with a goal.What you see here in this game is just a little skirmish of the culture war. The point is to undermine and demoralize traditional western values. The more blatant the lies, the more obvious the historical revisionism, the better. They want you to know that you, and everything you stand, for is being attacked and that you have no way to fight back. Make no mistake, to these people everything, repeat everything, down to the last insignificant detail, is an integral part of a much wider struggle. Everything is a battle for supremacy. be it movies, statues, utube videos, reddit subs, comics or even just a fucking video game. They seek to replace you and take power for themselves. Death by millions of little cuts, spread out over decades if need be. That's all it is. Not about equality or fairness. its about power. Its about who controls who. These bastards are fully committed and they never give up, grudgingly I have to give them that.
>>913298They did. And then the Rome delivered coup de grace.
>>913342All the better that I still call you Russian, Slav(e).
>>912969i think the worst thing about retards like you, is how smug they act
>Crashes ever 14 minutes
>>913152>Bantu>peaceful expansionDidn't they genocide every other tribe east of Kalahari?
why is the game so dead so soon after release?
>>913440because they haven't managed to make game bland and consumer-friendly enough to reach levels of stellaris and civ 6
>>911797Have they made the game less boring yet? Haven't played it since a bit after the release.
>>913440Hory shet Civ 5 absolutely dabbing on Humanperson

>>913363You are actually retarded. All of the noble aristocratic classes of Europe have been different groups then the people they rule. The French aren’t frankish but their rulers are, the Anglo Saxon’s ruled over cleric britons “b-b-but the name is anglicized.” Cope cope cope.
>>913664>dude I’m just completely rejecting all the academic information about the history of the European nobility in favor of their completely fabricated propaganda mean to serve the purpose of legitimizing their social stratification and giving them an underserved air of grandeur>but YOU are the one coping
>Cope cope cope.I don’t see how pointing out an “Anglo-Saxon” king’s name isn’t Anglo-Saxon is a cope. Do you have any capacity for critical thinking or do you just read Herodotus and believe there are giant gold digging ants in India? At there’s that one autist here who will just admit that he wants history to be full of lies and half truths to serve a narrative. You’re trying to pass of this bullshit as objective history, and when you’re proven wrong you hide behind memes.
>>913664you are genuinely an insane retard if you think a Celt somehow became king of the anglos. I don’t care about your Wikipedia source I could find a trillion more sources that agree with this basic fact,
>>911979>Your country will never make a good videogame.Daisuke Ishiwatari (Guilty Gear series) is from South Africa.
>This may indicate that Cerdic was a native Briton, and that his dynasty became Anglicised over timeThis also may not, and you are a dishonest coping celt for presenting a controversial guess as a fact
>>913521>this was supposed to be the Civ killer
>>913269I don't get who they're supposed to be pandering to. For normalfags they only care about pop history, and so won't care about random African cultures. For actual history nerds, most don't really care about African cultures since there's so many more interesting cultures/civilizations elsewhere in the world. The only audience that would actually be happy about this choice would be the handful of Africans who actually own the game, and the obvious sjw audience who only pretend to like African culture to virtue signal.
>>913678You aren’t going to find relevant academic sources suggesting otherwise. Sorry you think actual, rigorous scholarship is insane, but I imagine you’re also that great man theory retard.>>913682Except we know it did
How about we just combine every bantu into a single culture of culture group. That way we can educate redditors about how bantus actually genocided many unique african cultures.
>>913704Don't worryWhen the Yamnaya get added in the EVROPA DLC they'll make sure that the Yamnaya are as genocidal as possible. If Amplitude decides to portray the Yamnaya as "peacefull", I'll be in dire need of a side transplant. I know they won't but still. Would be funny if they did.
>>913367In a nutshell
BBC (based bantu colonizers)
BBC (bad bantu cucks)
>Alfred>Ethelbert>Edward>EdmundAll clearly celtic names and have nothing to do with germanic influences at all
Every single King of England from Alfred to Harold had a germanic name and spoke a germanic language and claimed descent from germanic gods but they were celts! honest!
>>913792Nobody said that so keep coping
>>913795Do you actually think they were descended from Wotan?
>they claimed descent fro->WOW STATING THIS HISTORICAL BELIEF MEANS YOU BELIEVE IT TOOwhy are celtoids like this?
>>913298>didn't the Nubians lose to the Egyptians?No, they lost to Assyrians.>>913370Roman Egypt was ransacked, and they prevented Nubians from founding a second Egyptian dynasty.
>>913816Okay so if holding a historical belief doesn’t make it true then just because they believed they were Anglo-Saxon conquerors doesn’t make it true, and all their earliest kings having Celtic names is pretty damning evidence that they were Celtic aristocrats who adopted the culture of Anglo-Saxon immigrants (who’s ancestry isn’t the majority anywhere in England) which provided a stabilizing alternative in the wake of the Romans removing everything necessary for their Romano-Celtic lives in 410.
>>913751The peace loving bantu can't be genocidal anon, they're not in Europe
>dude the celts were still the upper class of england they just took on the culture of anglo peasants for no reason lmao
yeah england's nobility told stories that they originated from hengist and horsa conquering an anglo kingdom but actually they were britons that had pretending to be anglos (because wholesale changing your identity makes your identity more stable) for so long they had forgot they weren't anglos
>>913825I don’t know why you keep saying “for no reason” when I gave you the reason. Romano-Celtic Britain’s entire way of life for 400 years was entirely dependent on 3 things. Access to the Mediterranean trade networks which brought exotic foreign goods, the presence of the legions which sustained their villa economies, and Roman specialists who created and maintained the infrastructure on the island. When the Romans left in 410 Britain was left with a complete and utter collapse in their civilization that took over 100 years to really bounce back from in Wales. Anglo-Saxons settlers, who came over in many waves (much smaller than previously believed), came with their system of life which wasn’t dependent on these things, and offered a stability that wasn’t present in Celtic society anymore. The people they settled near gravitated to this because their entire society had collapsed, and they wanted an alternative, which led to generations of assimilation into this Anglo-Saxon culture. Even today in southeast England, the vast majority of British ancestry is Celtic. The Celtic aristocrats didn’t do it for “no reason” they did it because of the aforementioned collapse in the society which they depended on.
>>913831It’s not pretending cultural assimilation isn’t “make believe”. It’s a natural process of human socialization, and yes having a functional cultural, and economic society is much more stable than not even being capable of making pots out of clay. Jesus in 50 years the celts couldn’t even use fucking pottery wheels anymore.
>>913298Yes but they also beat the Egyptians. Nubians and Egyptians have a long history of fighting each other and working together to face external treats. Both ended up having similar cultures until the Nubians got pushed further down the nile, there they would change their culture and become known as the Kushites. They were able to stalemate Rome under Augustus in the 1st century. They're descendants the Ethopians even held out against the Muslim Caliphates.
>>913521hah what a fucking dumpster fire
>>911797so they are really going to double down with the nigger shit huh?
>>913408pretty much. San like people inhabited most of southern africa before they spread there. it was a classic "farmer vs hunter gatherer" situation you find all over the world.the San could fighr back (and die), flee to less hospitable areas or get cucked.based on historical and genetic evidence they did all 3
>>913199Of course they have culture. But having mindset that african culture was compareble to roman or byzantium and it was super peaceful until ebil whiteys comes to destroy it is fucking ultra retarded. If you honestly believe that then you are brainwashed leftie twitter fag that should really thing about yourself and how you percieve world and its history becuase this is just simply... stupid.
>The house of Wessex might have been Angloised Britons judging from the earliest name in the king list.>Therefor the entire anglo-saxon aristocracy was definitely just Angloised Britons. Are you that archeologist who was coping on /his/ a few weeks ago?
>>912694>numidians>nubiansAnd neither of them are bantuniggers that get pushed everywhere.
>>911797Why is the DLC more civs? They needed to fix the bland game with better mechanics like fixing religion, pollution, and warscore.
>>913656Finish the fightjoin the statisticOverdose on krokodil
>>911911We literally don’t. There’s a disproportionate amount of them in vidya just like crime statistics and advertising
>>913521yet civ 3 is actually a good game.
>>912969Blacks never had any civilisations
So ... everyone's talking about politics and nobody's talking about the actual game. Is this some form of genius marketing? I heard the game is absolute trash tier, and it's a travesty they're releasing DLC at this stage instead of fixing their shit, but nobody talks about this. They might even sell more copies because discourse about the actual game is so drowned out. Is there really nothing to talk about gameplay-wise?
>>914609I am waiting for someone to implement endless legends races or make vox populi-like mod for it. Until this moment i wouldn't spend even a click to download it.

>>914670But I want roving clans to be actual roving nomads, and launch dirty dust bombardment of necrophage territories from strike group of modern aircraft carriers enhanced by technologies of endless, not just change colors of swords for the third time.
>>914596it's still the best anon
What's the point in selling Civs in a civ clone if you don't even play as one civ for the entire game?
> there are people who protect playing as "Napoleonic France" from start to atomic age as a good thing in civ.> instead of getting rid of greeks to negros nonsense, devs add even more nonsense. Circus.
>>914711wait for Endless Legend 2 anon, Humankind killed any chance of banking on a new IP
>>914927Playing as a consistent civ is much more rewarding than having a constantly changing identity.
>>912068>Turn based game desyncs in multiplayerThis has been a problem will all of Amplitude's games and it seeme clear that they can't fix that. Hopefully this means that they'll ditch Unity for Endless Legend 2 but the cynical part of me says that they'll ignore criticism of the game.
>>914988>>914988>Playing as a consistent civ is much more rewarding than having a constantly changing identity.Like Celts changing into Anglo-Saxons?
>>914991It's really because their game isn't turn based in multiplayer, it's real time. Everyone acts their turns out at the same time. If McFaggot tells his spearchukers to go to a tile one millisecond earlier than Kurwatowsky, the latter can't send his unit to that tile anymore.It has absolutely nothing to do with Unity, the simultaneous turn system is a gimmick developed at the studio and it's definitely something no game engine has native support for.
>>915078>McFaggot is thes econd person to join game's lobby, while Kurwatowsky is third>If any conflict arises McFaggot always goes first, while Kurwatowsky has to change his move.Here, problem solved.
>>912694>Nubian archers were the best in the world, and they invented the longbow over a 1000 years before the Welsh did.I'm nubian and i didn't know this, do you have any source?

>>915086I'm not living there..
>>915090Then you aren't Nubian, you're just another sandnig who immigrated and your children will speak English/whatever native language of the region you immigrated to. >implying you'll have children
>>915084He's shitposting, longbows have existed since prehistory and are nothing special.
>>915084>>915100This. Ötzi the iceman had a really high-pull longbow with him. And that guy died over a century before the first recorded Egyptian dynasty.Nubians were known for their archers, that part is true and English are retards who propagate a myth of longbows being some secret superweapon they developed and conquered the world with. It's your standard bullshit people say about their country, you're just more likely to get exposed to it because it's in English, unlike say how the Serbians built pyramids before Egyptians did and what-not, for which you'd need to read and watch lots of their shit instead.

>>915125Who are you replying to?
>>913697Those who say 'get woke, go broke' have got it the wrong way round. Most companies aren't doing this stuff because they believe in it or think their consumer-base will like it. What happens is as soon as they know they have a product nearing completion that is forecast to go way below the expectations they had set during the pitching and business case, they need to have an excuse if it does so badly it flops completely. The excuse is to blame the people who told them where they went wrong: it was 'toxic fans' that done it. They can't just come out with that though, so they have to do the set up before the product is on-sale: they flaunt the ideals that most people(even Leftists who haven't disregarded reality) find repulsive as part of the promotion, provoking backlash, which they can then point at later. See how Sony Pictures deleted comments beneath the Paul Feig Ghostbusters trailers that disliked that it was a reboot, but left up the overtly sexist and unconstructive ones. >Many such cases
>>911797I can say without a doubt that at least 5 out of 10 posters itt are eastern europeans
>>911809Buh do dey no da wey?
>>91538190% of vst users are slavs, turks and brazilians.
>>912694>The Europeans in this thread are just mad because they are still a bunch of barbarians who can only destroy civilization. See both Roman EmpiresGreeks and Italians were white though. They no longer are, but they used to be.
>>915381>I can say without a doubt that at least 5 out of 10 posters itt are eastern europeansYup.
>>915381Isn’t it funny how slav niggers come to English sites to complain but you don’t see the reverse.
>>915110>English propagated a myth about longbows Lay off the vodka you dumb slav. That doesn’t even make sense. The English conquered the world with ships and cannons.
so considering humankind gameplay feature, that means you can always whitewash your culture or become blackface?
>>911797African civs going from proper housing to mudhuts in this game will never not be funny.
>>915531wtf humxnkind sisters we must go on twitter and cancel it at once
>>915535That's reversed, r-right?
>>915486>90% of vst users are slavs, turks and braziliansYes.
>>915486>>915381This is probably why /vst/ is a best boardAnglos just cant compare to us superior ESL's3rd worlders rise up
>>912565Wow, there will not be a humankind 2.
>>915938This time they will rebrand and call the sequel "Peoplekind"
>>912029It wasn't just a black guy on the cover, it was a black DOCTOR (is there a black culture famous for white lab coat wearing doctors? All other cover art characters are representing something something specific from a real historic culture) and he's holding hands with a blonde white woman (representing Scandinavians/vikings).If you don't see the messaging you're either retarded or being disingenuous.
>>911797>Culture of AfricaLooking forward to being a savage MF
>>913152>or how'd they drove away the competition so bad they turned into jungle pygmies.I need to read more about this
>>916381>If you don't see the messaging you're either retarded or being disingenuous.false; he's both
>>916381anon, black doctors are heroes who instead of working in other country after finishing education move back to their single digit gdp per capita shithole to save lives. they don't need to be famous or make breakthroughs in medicine, just doing their work in fucking nurgle pits which generate new version of plague every day is enough to respect them.
>>916611Senseless altruism to save a perishing race.
>>916621>a perishing racewhose? you can't be serious if you think any black/african/negroid race is dying off
Man dude this thread just makes me hate niggers so much. Smelly smelly niggers and their big smelly noses like those lame brained Zionist pig fuckers. I wish I lived in an America where nigger worship was met with harsh capital punishment. If I had any integrity I would shot myself and end this shit. I can see what’s going on I’m delusional but not like scherzo nigga shit, I’m confident that one day america will be the new niggertopia a “ye’s Africa 2 by Donda” situation.
>>916384Noooo! Not the heckin nigerino. Noooo! Only whippipo can be slavers. Nooooo! That's not fair y'all.
>>911797>thinly veiled racebait threadjannies pls
>>913367Ah, so the developers of the game are about promoting a political ideology and not about making more money by appealing to the cultural mainstream in their primary market. Makes total sense.
>>911797Lol I hope they lost a ton of sheckles on this abomination
>>913152The stone carved churches in Ethiopia are genuinely interesting>allows them to mingle with indigenous populationyou can tell kikes were involved
>>913440>not fun nigger tier trash that's 60+ buxGet woke go broke
>huMANkindjesus christ, what the fuck is this sexist bullshit, it should be peoplekind
>>916384Would actually play this if you could be the barbary pirates and rape and pillage everything
>>911797Ok now they're feeding the meme. Fuck this half finished game for getting my hopes up.
Or play as the Kahn's raping and pillaging the pussy ass ming chinks and the rest of the known world. Except with these games they make everything gay and pussified instead of brutal and fun.
>let's turn the most brutal civilizations into gay faggy bland shit>except whitey, whitey is the devil
Will they EVER recover from this game? Should I hold any hopes for Endless Legend 2, Endless Space 3, anything at all? or is Amplitude done?If they're fucked for good I hope their composer jumps ship. The soundtracks have been great
>>913697>For actual history nerdsI've yet to read about any time or place that wasn't interesting in a way. But if by actual history nerds you mean midwit /his/ dwellers, then you're absolutely right.
>>917647>>917642My theory is that women and strategy games development don't mix
>>917651I hope they go bankrupt
>>917630Yeah its really, really poetic way to say that the Bantu are more advanced than other tribes, so ofc nobody can stop them to "mingle" and reshape other's society according to Bantu's custom. Just say conquer or assimilate.>>916390https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_PygmiesI digress, since apparently they've separated themselves from other groups since ten of thousands of years ago. But the Bantu expansion and others have greatly encircled them into literal pockets of jungle areas and forced them to stuck on literal stone age living. Imagine experiencing insular dwarfism in the middle of the continent
>>917642>picthat's "Mongol," not a documentary, and it was pretty fuckin good
Africans in civ games has always struck me as really ironic political correctness, since Africans never had any civilisations
>>917691>greatly decimated by the prehistoric Bantu expansion, and to the present time widely affected by enslavement and cannibalism at the hands of neighbouring Bantu groups.This is the type of African nation I'd love to play as or against.>Cannibalise Vatican>Covert it to African paganism
>>911797>no workshop>no major fixes or reworks>just slap together some shit that could have been done by a mod over a couple of weekendsFuck everything else, these are the real issues. Holy shit they dropped the ball on this game hard and aren't even trying to save it.
>>917826The fuck is this retarded thing? Both Endless Legend and Space 2 had steam workshop support. Is it because of stadia or some shit like that?
>>915815No, there are medieval wonders on the map and they choose fucking maasai to represent early modern african culture
>>913263Look at this pedophile using pedophile code words.We will get you pedo, and you will not like it. I can promise you this you pedo American cunt
>>911797Finally. I can lay waste to Africa as I do in CiV.
>>911797LMAO, can't make this shit up.Not even gonna pirate this woke garbage
>>911893You could play Endless Legend instead, the cultists are a one city civ except instead of being a gimped barb camp tier faction like Civ 5 Venice you make the fuckhuegest city on the map
>Maasai>skin-and-bones people due to living in literal savannahs>completely dependent on cattle, when various bovine disease breaks out, 2/3 of their population died out>unique. power is that they eat 25% less foodhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGrRsnC9NJMkek.
>>918376You forgot their EU are club throwing Morans
>>917829No idea. Insurgency 3 and Snowrunner uses it as well. Maybe it's an anti-Workshop policy thing or for Epic compatibility
>>918391And they had to clarify it as well. You see, these are not your typical Morans, these are your Maasai Morans. kek.
>>911893There are sea sieges now, land units and Gunpowder weapon ships (starting with Carracks) can siege island cities as long as the city has a district on the coast.
>>911809Is it -really- that pozzed?
>>911971Amplitude is French. And it's owned by a Japanese company.
>>912565Ouch. Humankind would probably have done better as Endless Legend 2.
>>913440If it's anything like Endless Legend it might be too just a bit too complicated for casual play without investing time to understand the mechanics.
Oh great, as if we didn't have insufferable shitposting about this game already...
>>918425Yeah but this also kills the modding community in its infancy. It is literally a noname site nobody cares or knows about. It isn't Steam workshop, modDB, Curse or Nexus. It has a lot of modding potential but it can't realise it without people willing to mod it.The only thing left is to hope that Paradox does the same as Amplitude with mods for their games.
>>915511Because serbian or polish isn't a mandatory language in our schools. And good fucking riddance, you'd infect us with your nigger worshipping culture.
>>918583meant anglo schools for fucks sake
>>918505SEGA is 100% pozzed now as well. It's time is over. If you care about defending your civilization, stop playing their games NOW.
>>918583You people add nothing, you ride the coatails of other civilizations, your people survived because other people came to your aid. Do I respect western africans more than you? Yes, about the same level if not a bit more for originality not just mimicking the Germans and Byzantines. If you add actual brown civilizations that invented a bunch of shit in isolation then there is not even comparison, like fuck, your precious potato is incan, what food did Poland or Hungary or Serbia cultivate?
>>918610Since when is Sega pozzed...?
>>917633>Get woke go brokemore like>Get shitty gameplay mechanics go brokeYou're retarded if you think the game bombed because of politics.
If anyone wants there will be a Company of Heroes 2 giveaway for those who didn't get it for free the first time. I'm just pissed that the Endless setting is being gutted. Atleast we are getting the map of Auriga.
>>918867Everything is pozzed when you don't take your medication.
>>918794>muh food anal-ogySorry that Eastern Europeans do not live in completely different climate or some magic land, but instead in bog-standard Europe.So no new ingredients to put into your multi-cultural burger.We won't pay reparations for Holocaust either.
>>919125So worthlessly edgy like all Slavs with no actual culture beyond being fake 'hard' on the internet? If I pulled a gun on you, you'd cry like a bitch.
>>913152>>the freaking Bantu expansion>>"we decide to potray this as a peaceful expansion"kek
>>919129Show the thread how hard some slav buttsexed you.
>>918794>>919129What food did french or anglos cultivate? What is this metric good for anyway ffs?
>>919134>his epic riposte is dumb homoerotic nonsense, confirming worthless ESL Slavanon is a repressed homosexual in addition to being sub-room temp IQYawn. Try building a real country and then I'll take your ethnicity seriously.
>>919125Why would you pay reparations for the Holocaust? If anything Germany needed to repay you after what they forced your grandma into prostitution.
Humankind would be much better if it had 3 buttons.
>>911797I'm hoping the backlash will be loud enough that the SEGA execs behind this DLC realize the devs time is better spent fixing bugs and expanding game mechanics rather than using their civ editor
>>917829It's a site where you can download the mods without having paid for the game, why the FUCK are you complaining?Absolute state of paypigs...
>>913152there is no real difference between the bantu expansion and european settlement of the new world.
>>913152> they drove away the competition so bad they turned into jungle pygmiesThe Bantu were this based??
