There are still basic issues which have not been addressed, and, I suspect, never will be.

I definitely concur with the first part.  I hope you're wrong about the second part, though only time will tell.

New DLC officially announced.  Release date is August 28.

It doesn't appear to fundamentally change the way the game plays, so I'll probably give it a pass for now.  Perhaps I'll be proven wrong, though.

Bleh....I've already moved on.

Somewhere, somehow, I woke up in the wrong timeline. I'm pretty sure this isn't even my dimension.

anyone still poking around with this one?


I've got some codes for some DLC for anyone willing to knock out a little coverage :)

I tried it again just recently but, despite the new DLC (which I don't have), it still suffers from the same issues it has done since the new version was released. If they addressed these problems, then it could indeed be a very good game.

I don't think anyone other than myself and martok (where are you, Sam?) actually have the game.

Just reading the patch notes and it seems that they have at least made some effort to fix some of the issues - notably the very poor (almost non existent) diplomacy aspect, and the rate at which the A! spammed cities.

I can re-install it and give it a try and report, if you want. (any word from Sam, at all?)
