    1. No new maps
    2. No fix for Air and Naval unit warfare
    3. No fix for Unit production cost (it's too low)
    4. No graphic speed enhancement
    5. No better AI
    6. No new tile improvements (ex. Land/Water minefield, No new resources, etc)
    7. No new religions
    8. No new civics
    9. No support Win-Lose-Dis system for Multiplayers (Unofficial Ladder report system is ridiculous)
    10. No new patch for Warlords

    P.S.
    11. No CANADA

    Okay.

    Think you could stop posting on the BtS board, then?

    2, 3: These aren't broken. If you don't like the design decision, hard luck.

    5: The AI is being improved.

    ???

    1. Scenarios... random map generator

    2. More promotions... more units

    3. Don't know what to say for this one, never knew it was a problem to some... mod it?

    4. I hope this is improved upon myself with all the new additions

    5. The AI is greatly improved... they'll even go for culture victories now

    6. I don't think there is... but forts have been improved greatly for example

    7. Why more religions? They're all the same, seems to be more than enough of them. Also, one word... Corporations.

    8. Nope, but I don't think it's that big of a deal.

    9. That's a shame for Multiplayers

    10. Probably because so much work has been put into BtS... move on to bigger, better things!


    Anyway, if you don't want to buy the next expansion... that's your problem, errr, I mean decision. Heck, you bought Warlords even, why wouldn't you get this latest one?

    Points 6 and 8 are valid. I myself would not want more tile improvements (6) though. I remember in Civ3 Conquests, the new tile improvements and types were just annoying (marshes).

    Try reading Methos' BtS info thread, cause many of your points are right on there.

    EDIT: looks like I was to late, and other noted my arguements for me..

    Your statement has been noted. Accordingly, Firaxis has scaled back its sales expectations by one unit. This will figure in their quarterly earnings report. Ouch!

    I won't buy BTS because I despise Civ IV with a passion known to very few.

    Um... new religions? What else do you want? Scientology? A lot of dumb complaints if you ask me.

    #1: You're a crybaby.
    #2: You expected them to change the core of the game.
    #3: You're a whiner.
    #4: You wanted a game overburdened with superfluous garbage.
    #5: You didn't read enough about all the features they did improve.
    #6: Uh, you get the idea by now.
