Persepolis once again changes hands, returning to Brazil. Ecbatana and Tosont Sengel appear to have flipped as well, but more important is the capture of Artashat. With two Robot Infantry at its walls, Kruger is eager to bring the city back under his banner. Should he succeed, the civ best positioned to benefit is Sibir, who also has a Robot Infantry camped outside of Ecbatana for when the time comes. Sibir’s involvement in the conflict was a smart move if Kuchum is able to pull off a quick expansion in the process. But that’s a pretty big “if”. We have yet to see any aggression from him, and there’s no guarantee he’s willing to exert it so far.
