New Poll - Choose among the 3 most requested Civilizations

Are you a moderator? What is with all the rules? Will you kill me if I break them? You’d probably have a more successful poll if you took things less seriously.

I made my topic and my poll, can’t I politely ask to people that participate to respect some rules?

I didn’t threatened anyone of anything. If you felt threatened, I’m sorry, please quote my thread, and see what I can do.

If you instead don’t want to follow the rules, you are free to ignore the topic, or to anyway do what you want. Even if I would be a moderator, I couldn’t anyway monitor any of you. That’s why I ask for your collaboration. I can’t only flag you if you don’t respect the general rules of the forum.

If you don’t follow the rules, you don’t disrespect me, you just made the results of the poll less accurate and less useful. The poll is built to try to catch the genuine and immediate opinions of the fans.

Sorry guys, don’t hate me or report me for spam, but if I want to get more people as possible to answer the poll I need that this topic stay visible and high on the forum.

Remember to link the poll to every inherent topic and even off forum, so to get more people votias we can.

This poll might not affect the decision of the next civ that will be introduced, but it might show that we want even more civs later on, and that what we want.

Its good that you made a thread to express your opinion.
But that does not mean everybody have to agree with you opinion, and it is a discrimination that you only allowed the fixed 3 civs on your pool without the option to add another civ. You just try to impose your choices by force, forcing people to vote your fixed choices.
You are not a moderator or a dev here.

Here is my opinion:
Italy did not exist until 1861. There is no such civ as Italians.
There were minor states like the Papal States, the Venetian Republic, Genoa, the Republic of Florence, the Duchy of Milan, the Kingdom of Naples and the Kingdom of Sicily. Many minor different states that had nothing to do with each other, different descendance, even at war most of the time.
So there is no such thing as Italian nationality or identity, but few different small states that merged together.
Even today it’s people cant understand each other, the language being too different from one part to the other of the country.

Koreans with their mighty heavy armored and full of cannons turtle ships are the only civ really missing from the game atm. They have a strong national identity and unique flavor to bring to the game.

He explained the reasoning: those were the top 3 picks from the bigger poll, he just wanted to see the preference between those 3.

Unfortunately, what I predicted happened: we got the exact same results and this poll is a wasted opportunity.

I see nothing really wrong with the rules you wrote down. However (as you’d agree now) it kinda drowned the readers in too much info and the whole point of the poll was missed by many.

I suggest keeping it short and simple next time.

What opinion did I express except for voting in the poll like everyone else?

The tree civs have been selected among the civs that received more votes in a previous poll. Here is the link:

Sorry, can you point out the discrimination? Did you feel like some of those ethnic groups or cultures were superior in some way? Because that’s discrimination by it’s definition.

Again, please show me where I impose something. Is asking to following some rules, all with the purpose of having a better analytic instrument, and imposition?

You are right, I can’t impose anything, even less punishment for those that don’t follow the rules. I can (and I did) ask.

If you don’t want to cooperate, then do what do you want, but the fact that you took it so personally or aggressively some rules, or the fact that people don’t agree with you, I just find it petty, and onestly I don’t see the point of just trying to go explicitly against what I asked.

There are ton of topics in the forum where you can express you opinion on what civ should and should not be introduced. Doing it down here when I asked to not do it, maybe because I asked it, seems like an aggression without any provocation.

We couldn’t have known before doing it.

It’s true, I may have made the rule too long. I didn’t consider the F pattern effect on the attention.

But I can shorten them now.

Leave it alone. I suspect that he came here with the purpose of provoking me, or express some frustration.

I ask to ignore him and other like him. I answer him just to explain my intentions, and clarify eventual misunderstandings.

Sorry but the link was not in the initial description :stuck_out_tongue:

And still why continue with another pool, why isn’t the first one sufficient?
They wont add just one single civ, cuz it’s not enough for an expansion, they cant charge for it.

Comment on the initial pool, and keep that one alive and fresh.
Maybe devs will see that Koreans are a strong choice on 4th position for example.

This new pool ignores all the other preferences except this first 3 that are totally subjective, and as I explained earlier, some of them are not even 1% as viable as others from a lower position.
Italians cant even exist as a civ, I explained earlier.
Let devs see all the choices and let them decide, don’t bring them just useless choices so they are forced to bring useless expansions in to the game and ruin it based on your thread incomplete feedback.

It was an idea of another user, which I find interesting.

The original poll is still open, and I’m working on another poll on a different platform, that will allow to have a even more accurate feedback.

Since the first poll has the vote split among a lot of choices, and since it’s unlikely that all made into the game, I made this poll as a second ballot, so that people that may prefer one choice that didn’t made it to the top can at least influence the choice between the 3 that were most popular.

For example, mayans in the previous poll received few votes. Not with all due respect to the mayans and the ones that voted for them, and considering for this poll only the popular vote (so putting aside all other factors), mayans are unlikely that can make into the game.

So the people who voted for them, they have at least the chance to choose the among the most popular civs the one that likes the most, or dislike the least.

If I would have made a new poll in the same topic, people who already voted may have just discarded it, thinking that they already gave their contribution. A lot of people just vote and then doesn’t read all the topic. I myself do that often.

With a new topic, and a new title, I have a bigger chance of attracting the people who already vote.

If I wanted to have the Italians appears as the most wanted civ, I wouldn’t have made the new topic. In the old one, italians are way ahead, with more than double the votes of the persians.

I made this topic exactly to give a chance to the other 2 civ, or to confirm the Italians as first one. Both were possible outcomes with all the votes of the others civ would have been concentrated in just 3 civs.

What truth? I asked, what do you prefer among these 3 civs, assuming an hypothetical situation when those are the choices.

How am I trying to hide the truth? The other poll is still there, and even if it wasn’t, it’s just a question. For what the devs know I’m just curious to see what is the next civ, and I’m trying to guess it based on the popular vote. Or I may just search people who like me want new civs, and see what civs they want more.

This isn’t an official poll. I made it, and I can see the results, as you after you have voted.

I never stated that I want to change the game.

And I thought that the US couldn’t exist as a civ. Yet here we are.

Then why you didn’t ignore it?

Anyway, I’m doing a bigger poll, with again all the possible civ (even more) and then the possibility to express your vote on how much you may be interested on every single option.
In the end, you can even express your opinion freely.

I would appreciate your help on checking if there are all the popular choices.

I’m using an external site to be able to make a better poll *(like, randomize the options).

Go here in the links to see how it works.

Probably the third civilization is a big surprise for everyone 21

I have my preferences but the reality is I’ll be happy with whatever they decide to give us…within reason of course.

Initially, I thought it too, but then consider that the hausa have a danes card, and the US a poles card.

Anyway you just vite the civ that you want to see, don’t worry about what it’s most probable or not.

Ok, as promised, here is the bigger poll of what civ do you want.

I made it with Google, since it’s easier to gather the votes with it.

Now, you aren’t limited anymore to choose just one civ (you’ll still do that, so be careful to choose your most preferred option) but you can also vote for each singular civ, to indicate how much you would like to see it into the game.

I put inside this poll a lot of options, really really a lot, I read you comments and then look for what civ mods like NE and WoL introduce.

For that reason, it might be a bit long, and exhausting to do it, still I ask to answer to it, to give the best feedback possible.

i think unsurprisingly most of the new world nations are being downvoted into oblivion.

surprises me that Prussia is leading atm, but it is almost certainly way too early to state that.

btw will you post the final score once you think it has run its course, like what the average answer gave to each civ.

Yeah of course. Though, it might take a while.

A poll this big needs way more answers that what the precedent polls had to be accurate.

Personally, I wouldn’t add Prussia, since the germans in the game in my opinion represents them, but to some they doesn’t, so I decided to add it.

At best it might mean that the civ in the game needs to be renamed.

so we have a few more votes, and while Prussia still has 2 “preferred faction” votes it also only has 2 5 stars and like 6 1 stars, i guess there are 2 people that REALLY want Prussia.

also most European factions have at least 2 1 stars, except Poland for some reason which i must admit i dont quiet understand, perhaps someone really only want Poles?
