England - muskets. India - snarky comments. Spain - nice clothes. Russia - stout constitution. Byzantium - Nukes. Gaul - More Nukes. Early game, should be a fair fight then...

I played a game, i certainly didn't play it as well as I could, but it seemed like the only counter my AI opponents could find was to delete their army so i couldn't spread religion as easily

The irony of Constatinople being powered up by the Crusade belief....when the city was sacked by Crusaders, is palpable.

This civ is dumb. Balance wise. Other civs have some strong bonuses, but they are hard to mesh or they have downsides. Look at the Gauls who are also in this update: cant build next to their city centers. Byzantium?? Naw, they are a religious civ that pretty much is guaranteed to get not just a religion, but pretty much the first religion, they snowball insanely hard and they get free units that are basically great generals, which could also be maintenance free. Who designed this???

Istanbul was Constantinople Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople Been a long time gone, Constantinople Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night Every gal in Constantinople Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople So if you've a date in Constantinople She'll be waiting in Istanbul Even old New York was once New Amsterdam Why they changed it I can't say People just liked it better that way So, take me back to Constantinople No, you can't go back to Constantinople Been a long time gone, Constantinople Why did Constantinople get the works? That's nobody's business but the Turks

Seems kind of broken? It will require good timing and taking advantage of the situation in the classical/medieval eras but how will the AI do when they’re playing this civ? These narrow victory civs seem fun but they also feel like we’re leaving others from the base game behind! Surely they must change Spain

Byzantine Chant is actually a choral tradition original to the Eastern Orthodox Churches which have their roots in the church tradition of the Byzantine Empire. Its tonal system actually dates back to the Ancient Greek one. Also it is basically in its core the predecessor of the Gregorian chant that came much later although the harmonics have slightly evolved over time. The differences to the Gregorian should be notable. There are many examples for this over the internet most notably the ones of the monks of the Mount Athos monasteries.

The Gregorian chant at the beginning in the background isn't Greogorian, it's actually a Byzantine chant dedicated to the Virgin Mary called "Ti Ipermaho" ('Τῇ ὑπερμάχῳ in Greek) which could be translated into "To the defender" in English, still sung by the Orthodox Christians to this day, that's what makes it so cool :) What's even cooler is the true meaning and origin of the song: It was sung after successful battles or during wars to ask and thank for the devine protection given by God intermediated by the prayers of the Virgin Mary as she was seen as the one protecting and praying to God for Constantinople. Wherefrom the title "The defender" given to her. So they nailed the style of the background music but also the context :) Really cool.

The knigh unit is kind of awkward, because you have to unclok it in divine right civic, which needs tons of culture and giving up the mercanary

This is a civilization streamlined for religious domination gameplay. Everything ties together and combined the abilities take away literally and hurdle for a world conquest win. A thing not mentioned at all in this video is that going for a religion in a domination game is the loyalty issue. Conquering cities of a different religion makes them flip independent faster. The Taxis ability completely turns this issue into ypur advantage, rewarding you with a loyalty bonus and combat strength bonus... combined with the incredible amount of amenities you can have really loyal happy cities in a world-spanning empire exhausted by war. It honestly looks far too powerful but very fun to play. The only thing I do not like is that for a long, long time during the medieval era Byzantium was also a technological and cultural leader. This part of history is not represented here at all and I hope that they will eventually give us another leader based more around religion and culture/scientific gameplay.

I'd like to point out that the Tagma is behind the Divine Right civic instead of Stirrups... which normally unlocks just the Knight. Which makes me wonder, does Stirrups unlock regular knights for Byzantium (mostly useless) or literally nothing (which makes it an entirely dead tech)?

Only civs I can see that are a direct threat to Byzantines are Rome since they have high map mobility and defensive options and the Mongols. They'll have a field day killing all your cavalry units and can quickly build offensive momentum against you.

this civ's definitely overtuned...having their religions pressure drop when they lose units would help quite a bit, as then you could defend against the inevitable crusade with smart military play. And honestly I think the unique entertainment district would still be powerful if it only gave a free heavy cav when the district was built, and not the district and each building. Would still be an S tier domination and religious civ with those changes, but they'd bring it in line a little

0:42 that is actually one the of the most beautiful psalms in orthodox christianity called "τη Υπερμάχω Στρατηγώ" translated to "To you, invincible champion" adressed to Holy Mary. It is also called Akathist Hymn meaning a hymn where you're not sitting down because, well, we don't sit down during the chanting. It has great significance to the orthodox church and honestly the history behind it is really cool and you should look it up!

This is unfair dude, balance went out of window, I feel pity towards Georgia, Khmer and even Spain and Samaria, previous civilizations need a good buff, this new civ is even more hardcore compared to Gran Colombia 😑 The only way to stop this civ is playing Korea and attacking them with GDR while they are still in industrial 😅
