So I got Brave New Word a few months ago, and as most civ games go, it's already unhealthily addicting. But, I have a few trivial quibs I ought to get off my chest, not with the game, just translations.

-Why is Harun al Rashid the leader of the Arabs? He was a Persian who ruled the Abbasids (who overthrew the Ummayads because they were to Arab-centric). Why does he call himself the "Caliph of the Arabs" when you first meet him? He's literally the LAST person to say something like that.

-Why the flying fvck does Ramses speak Fus'ha Arabic? Even Arabs don't use fus'ha, especially Egpytians, and especially Egyptians who lived long before Fus'ha even existed.

- The arabic here is deeply cringy: http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net... From the looks of it they're trying write "As-Sa'idun", plural form for "Saadi". Which is fine, if they didn't put the waaw and the yaa letters and the wrong place and IF THE LETTERS WERE'NT FKING DISJOINTED.

- More disjointed letters: http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net...

-Ramses is speaking Arabic.

-Also, forgot to mention, ARABIC.SPEAKING.PHARAOHS
I bear witness that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) is his messenger.

Got Brave New World.

Which is odd because:
-Elizabeth speaks English.
-Napoleon speaks French.
-Selassie speaks Amharic

and for some reason

RAMSES.SPEAKS.FVCKING.ARABIC

It's a brave new world of different languages in different countries. Don't infringe on Ramses' right to speak Arabic :p.

lol the game isn't anywhere near historical accuracy from what I've heard.
