[2k]Civilization V Expansion Pack Announced - Page 3

post #21 of 56
One of the few games/expansions that I know I'll be getting. Seems I need to wait-and-see how good a game is a lot more than I used to. mad.gif

I understand your frustration. I haven't had any loading errors and I play on quick small maps so turns are rarely long. Would you call yourself a die hard civ4 fan?
If so I don't think you will ever like civ5 magybe this expansion will help but it's still not CIV4. I understand though if this is the way you feel. When CIV4 came out I felt the same way,loved CIVIII, so I never got into civ4.
Yeah the DLC doesn't add much content. But the balance and rules have greatly been improved.

I didn't start playing civ until this november. My last game was sometime this month. If this is 'greatly improved' I don't even want to see what the launch was like. For a game with no SP storyline, you'd figure they could t least create some decent AI. Civ 5 AI is like gaming in the 80's with how much it cheats to make up for a lack of intelligence.

SP story line? I can tell you just started playing civ. Not to sound rude but I think you were expecting a RTS with campaigns and such. Honestly if you think the game is that terrible as it is then I don't think you will be satisfied with any civ game. Which is ok we all have certain games we like and hate. biggrin.gif

Sounds good and all, but I've already spent way too much on this ONE game...

Yeah this is my first Civ game but I've been playing Civ 5 for +250 hrs.
You completely missed the point of what I was saying, btw.

I think you should stop assuming. I already told you my dislikes about this game. Point blank the AI is retarded. Increasing difficulty levels should increase the AI quality and yet i find that from Beginner to Deity the AI is always just as stupid, the only difference is they get an ungodly amount of cheats for Deity that no human can ever hope to counter. I'm a teching guru in this game and on Immortal I find myself frequently +70 turns behind by the time someone makes the Statue of Liberty.

As i said before, when i increase the difficulty to immortal or deity i want to feel like it's an even chess match where the strategy is what separates winners from losers. What i get is akin to a bunch of 10 yr old haxors.

Considering the Civ community seems incredibly disappointed about the AI and bugs just like I do, your words don't carry any weight. Are you defending it from a rational POV or that of a fan?

I think you are taking my tone as attacking. I am sorry if I came across that way.

I am clearly a fan, been since CIV2

And using that vast history I can tell you right now every iteration has the "CIV community" up in arms with the AI and other annoying game mechanics.
What the game should do and what it does do are two different things. I never understood people that play a game 250+ hours and not have any thing positive to say about it. Honestly I would never had guess you played it that much with the way you were talking.

I myself have played 700+ hrs. bought the game on day one and haven't stopped since (I know sad, stop judging lol biggrin.gif )

As the game has problems, as all games do, I myself haven't found any game to entertain me this long
I again am sorry if I came across a snobby or what ever that was never my intent.

I just don't like that you have to 'help' out the AI with money at times, because they'll be near bankrupt and hate you for being rich or something (I kid not, I was attacked by two civs that I never traded with and haven't attacked either a city-state or another civilization.)
