    Mod Note: This thread was posted before the rule change, and before this Spoilers section was created. Since Vikings/Cultural settlements are now announced on Beta, we have moved the thread in its entirety to the new spoilers section, even though it contains material which under the new rules would not be permitted - namely information gained from the spoilers section on Beta prior to the official announcement there.
    Please be aware that the posting of information gained other than from official announcements on Beta is not permitted. We have exceptionally allowed it in this case in order that discussion regarding Vikings may continue here

    ------------------------------------

    Okay, I had to steal content for this topic from Beta forum, but this is something just so amazing that it has to be here too :P
    Content:
    I found a bunch of things connected to Vikings, but it all seems to be rather jumbled up. I'm trying to make head or tail of it, but until then, feel free to make your own guesses.

    In the bottom image, I've found 4 new goods, which go by the names of:
    While the image might look frighteningly huge, and certain of these achievements haven't been implemented yet, the one which has caught my attention is in the third-from-last column, and second-from-bottom row (why do I have the feeling that it has something to do with Vikings? Look at the goods, a connection clearly seems to exist).In the attached image, that same achievement icon is repeated. Upon parsing the XML file, the name turns out to be 'outpost_hud_vikings_huddecoration'


    • [​IMG] Axes
    • [​IMG] Horns
    • [​IMG] Mead
    • [​IMG] Wool (courtesy @outoftheline) .

    All of this is is giving me a feeling that something related to Vikings is coming to town. I doubt it would be an event (why would we have goods then?), it can't be a new era (VF just started, no building/army etc. images yet), so what IS this!?
    Any idea what could be this?

    Yes this is interesting I have not seen it before or if then I can not remember.
    Perhaps an Event or an addition to GE, who knows.

    And seriously, when the heck are we going to get the other 20+ missing achievements?!
    I want my shiny 'Master Lv' 1st place GE achievement medal. :P

    ...and yes, Vikings! Bring on the Vikings.
    (with drinking games, because well, Vikings!;) )

    Probably the biggest clue to something with Vikings:
    some words from the game info:

    Vikings
    Copper Coins
    Diplomacy
    Axes
    Mead
    Horns
    Wool


    "era": "NoAge",
    "abilities": {
    "outpostResource": {
    "content": "vikings",
    "type": "outpostResource",

    Interesting @DarkUros222
    So possible then that it's GE related. Or related to the Temple of Relics /OR/ maybe another unique GB. Perhaps a new feature entirely different from both GvG and GE is coming along with goods made in a no age GB?

    Or maybe it'll be a new GvG map :D Although given the word says "diplomacy" that'd indicate otherwise

    Winter event? To continue in the pirate line and the axes, horns ect. can be equivalents to the fall ingredients. Diplomacy can refer to the coming back of the hide action.

    would be cool if it were somthing about GvG like vikings that attack coastal GvG sectors once every day on all coastal sectors wich would force coastal guilds to defend daily and force the coastal guilds to plan ahead an attack on guilds in midle of maps where Vikings won't have access and by same occasion re-code the GvG for acces on App to
    this would by same ocasion force guilds in land to defend daily against coastal guilds

    That is a message from when GvG was still new
    The Border sectors that cant be won used to attack the adjacent sectors at recalc time and you would lose def armies that needed to be replaced daily
    They removed that part of GvG but never removed the text from the sectors

    Or...GE for individuals.
    Or... GvG-like PvP, with vikings as agressive neutrals.
    Or ...Continent map that strikes back.
    Or...Co-operation hood activity "Vikings attack, you must forget your griefs and unite against this common ennemy" diplomacy is neighbourhood giving tasks to everybody.
    Or... You can choose to be Frankish/Roman as you are now at the beginning of the game but can now also be Viking or with later updates Japanese, Turkish, Native American, Paleo-Siberian, Slavic, Aborigines, Malian, Arabic, Celtic...

    Looks like this is not quite a new era, but something like a city we can build along with current, on same world.
