    So anyway, place your bets: when will civ7 arrive?

    it is just that the devs dont want it to be good. just check old world and how good the AI is with 1UPT there. there is world of difference

    Is Beyond Earth 2 coming before Civ 7

    beyond earth simply lacked the deep story and interesting and detailed characters that SMAC had. The mechanics and graphics are not what players were looking for.

    The core of 4X games "boring endgame problem" - a short essay about Rapidly Increasing Complexity

    how about it always occur to all players AI and human , as part of the endgame challenge , since we already know people dont really play or enjoy endgame , maybe this will make it interesting enough. it could be walled off via options like the whole latest expansion pack to see how many people...

    The core of 4X games "boring endgame problem" - a short essay about Rapidly Increasing Complexity

    the idea of unrest is unpopular but wideflung empires always have had this problem since all the richest were concentrated in the core provinces and the far flung corners were left out of the confortable life. Also the neighbours were never friendly if someone was running away with economy or...

    The core of 4X games "boring endgame problem" - a short essay about Rapidly Increasing Complexity

    paradox games have supply mechanic. if you keep more units in a tile than it can support your units start dying off. the worse the difference between supply and army size the worse it gets. paradox games thus do not need that 1unit per tile rule.

    So anyway, place your bets: when will civ7 arrive?

    that game is more Heroes of might and magic than it is civ series. dont get me wrong i love it but it is still not historical or 4x strategy. it is more like 4X+magic+turn based combat. i dont see that kind of game to appeal a lot to the devs of the civ franchise with their target of easy going...

    So anyway, place your bets: when will civ7 arrive?

    it is just lazy coding not taking advantage of the multiple CPUs and other technological advances to chip design. check out how fast the AI turns are for a "stardock" game. their AI is also actually competent. i disagree with all the hate this 1 UPT gets. i actually played since civ1 and it was...

    The core of 4X games "boring endgame problem" - a short essay about Rapidly Increasing Complexity

    unlimited resources from start finish , never ending mines , never changing trade routes are not helping the endgame either. imagine you finished the techtree and can built modern armor but lack the resources to build them , since you spent the resources you had on earlier stuff like buildings...

    The core of 4X games "boring endgame problem" - a short essay about Rapidly Increasing Complexity

    for me it is not the complexity , it is this knowledge that the game is already over and i am just hitting end of turn towards that inevitability. basically i get bored at that point. There is no comeback mechanics for the AI , no events to rally the opponents for a last stand or a great war to...

    So anyway, place your bets: when will civ7 arrive?

    what is expected of civ7 is the most important question that the devs need to answer , apart from the usual , more map options , better graphics etc. for the first time since civ1 there are contenders with unique ideas also available , not just clones but 4x games that have ideas that iliked a...

    Take Two/Zynga

    never pre-order , never buy game on day 1. they are digital after all, they will never run out of stock or out of discounts watch some twitch ,youtube first and then if convinced buy. if everyone keeps throwing money at game companies why would they ever change their money printing style. it is...
