Your a beta tester!

Jees, It must have been annoying not being allowed to fill in all the gaps in the pre-release info.

Great job, Civrules!

In the next day or two, we will have something really really big coming too, so be on the look out!

There's too much! 2 big reviews in one morning. I'm going to go mad

BTW, you beta testers write much better reviews then the professionals.

@TF, I don't suppose you are a beta tester too...

Well, there's the big difference - the "professionals" that have come up so far with previews are not civvers, but all the beta testers are hardcore civvers.

So does Civ4 suffer from Beastly wait times between turns like Civ3 did for large and huge maps?

Great question.. I've been wondering about that also. It would ruin the game for me (Well, until I get my new computer anyway )

Great read! And a big-load of new info there! Thanks!

Victoria looks very british and royal!

@Thunderfall: really really big?? I won't be able to sleep! (joking here)
Thanx for pushing me further towards being a truly hopeless civ-addict:

First thing in the morning @work: checking CFC, before getting coffee!!!

I'm keeping the site open on my browser as long and frequent as possible!

Last thing @night: checking CFC -

That's already done, now I'll even have to do more! - Just one more check!
