V11 is released! YAAAAAAAAY! :D
Thanks to /u/Delnar_Ersike - as always you are a code legend, thank you so much for the support!! Here's to working together towards V12! :)
Testers: RedHatTurtle, Purple Lurple, Meota, Elysynos, Erik6516, Oberon - I'm pretty sure I'm forgetting a couple others, but holy crap they did SO MANY TESTS, you are all legends!!
- TL;DR TOP 10 GUIDE TO MAJOR CHANGES IN V11

- Everyone has Assyrian UA - now everyone gets a free tech the previous city owner had when they conquer a city.
- You can no longer purchase Great Scientists with Faith when you finish Rationalism.
- All religious beliefs have been updated, lots of new/changed things. In particular, pantheons have been pulled back significantly.
- You can now send trade routes to other players without fear - if they declare war on you, you get your units back instead of them being destroyed. If you declare war, they are still destroyed normally.
- You can't farm Great Generals from barbarians or City State units - they still give you XP (capped to 30) but you won't earn Great General points.
- Getting an ideology now only gives the first founder 1 free tenet.
- Everyone can found a Religion now if you enable the option in the lobby.
- World Congress meets 50% faster all game long.
