View Full Version : Any mention of wonders yet?

So, not being up to speed over the summer, I might have missed this somewhere, and the supermap didn't really help much. What are wonders going to be like? Do we know what any of them are? Is the masassi temple one, or does that have some other function?

I actually hope there aren't wonders. Thats a bit too AOK for me. I know its the same engine and all, but wonders were all Age series. However it'd be nice if you got a civ bonous for as long as you had a wonder or something. So if there are wonders I guess I just hope its not the same as in AOK.

I believe there are. i think I remember a picture from somewhere, I thnk ign.com, where it said something about , (name), you have just built a wonder! If it stands for 12 day, you win! Or something to that effect. So I think they're in there. That would be cool though, if they did give some kinda bonus, like in the Civ series.

Yes, it a LEC screen, the one with the wookies and the empire attacking by boat, it says in the top of the screen, "Wonder: 300 days" So there will be wonders.

Well, if you think about it, a wonder victory doesn't really make sense. In AOK, it made perfect sense: You made a ssignificant impact on the world, immortalizing your culture, so you win. It goes perfectly with the whole historical theme. But this is SW. Having wonder victories doesn't really fit.....TF vs Gungans for example. The Gungans build a monument, the TF's just going to raze it and slaughter the remaining Gungans. Its SW, your not trying to make your civ 'great', your trying to conquer your enemies.

The only difference is they're called Monuments.

Wonders really don't feel like a SW thing to me. They should have just left it out
