Title: Is Play by Cloud the new Pitboss?
Post by: E_T on February 16, 2019, 05:34:18 PM
I was watching Hadrian's Civ6 Patch notes Video and there was something around the 19 minute mark of the video that told about the new Multiplayer Feature.  It sounds like a mix of the PBEM and Pitboss.

Anyone know more about this?


Also, note to UnO, looks like there is also new Color Blind Options available now.

According to Nikolai over at WPC

PBC is the new Pitboss yes. And it works wonders! I have had games going for months, and it is the best thing for MP since sliced bread.

He can't say due to NDA, but he apparently has been playtesting for Firaxis for a while...
