Minor civs' necessity > Main civs

I don’t know about you, but I could never stand FROM DE’s DAY 1 about so many maps with repeated and nonsense minor civs, and can’t believe they didn’t adding ANY minor civs with new maps, especially Asia maps…

I know there are many argument of new main civs, but I believe no one will against minor civs to be add.
Here is the Asian minor civs developers could replace with current minor civs without taking too much time:
Tatars with Mongolia/Silk Road/Siberia/Kamchatka/Manchuria maps to replace the CURRENT two 100% NONSENSE minor civs:
Shaolin Temple and Sufi Mosque.

That’s all for now, since many people is arguing about main civs, how about take break find the common goals to FIX these old problems. :slightly_smiling_face:

As we have seen with some of the american natives, once they get rework on civs they do reworks on minors as well.

The developer has said that a minor civ must ideally appear on more than 5 maps, otherwise it will not be worth the investment to make it. So if we want more minor civs, let’s pray that there will be enough new maps.

Asian minor civs should first try to follow the religious-themed tradition, such as Tibetan Buddhist temple, Theravada Buddhist temple, Shinto grand shrine. In regions that cannot be covered by the religions, then tribes or settlements are used as the theme, such as the Ainu in Ezochi (Hokkaido), the Formosans in Formosa (Taiwan), the Yakuts in Siberia, etc.

btw, the Hui settlements should replace the Sufis on the maps near Mongolia because there will be no elephants there. Hui people, as a collective name for Muslims in China, is a good material. Although the name is ethnic, it would actually operate as a religious minor civ.

Here is the list of my past suggestions for new Asian maps and minor civs.

From a retrospect, actually it is the Americans that are over-crowded. This of course is the result of the sole focus on Americans before TAD. A few American natives are very infrequent and you cannot make each one of them impressive and unique with this amount.

But I do think some Asian natives should be split, especially Sufi. It is very Indian-flavored but functions as the sole Muslim native. It even appears on Indonesia and Mongolia.
If middle east and Persia were treated as Asians in later additions, there should be some more Arabic or Persian minor factions instead of putting Sufi everywhere.

Since Arabs ally with Ethiopia and revolution Egypt exist in current game.
Shouldn’t take too much effort for developers to add minor Arabs.
The reason I mention Tartar is because is really easy for developers to add them to represent Turks and Mongolian at same time as minor civs since DAY 1, but they just didn’t do it…

Finally, they did it!
It’s happening!!!
What an AMAZING moment!!!
Thank you developers, I’ll always appreciate and support you guys~~~ :blush: :innocent: :hugs:
