teammate(s) receive a boost for that tech or civic.
- Teammates share war status against opponents not on their team.
- Teammates share allied status with opponents not on their team.
- Teammates work together to win or lose the game as a single entity.
The Religion and Culture Victories have been reworked so they are more
- The Religion Victory requires you to convert all civs to ONE of
the religions started by your team.
- The Culture Victory requires ONE member of your team to be
culturally dominant over all players NOT on your team.
