When all else fails, Civilization 5 resorts to Extreme Diplomacy


Image

Civilization V will include a novel solution to long drawn-out endgames that have made the series such a chore to play.[INDENT]Should normal diplomacy or military might fail to resolve conflicts between empires, Extreme Diplomacy would allow two world leaders to enter a death match and fight to the finish, using special attacks and finishing moves. Two world leaders enter; one world leader leaves. The victor will obtain complete control of the challenger's world empire. [/INDENT]First they dumb down Civilization for console systems in Civilization: Revolutions, and now this? Sid Meier must be rolling over in his grave.

Not according to wikipedia.

"Meier currently lives in Hunt Valley, Maryland with his wife, Susan, and son, Ryan. He met his wife at Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church in Cockeysville, where they both sing in the choir.
