    Fair enough!

    I sort of don’t disagree they’re releasing more “stuff” overall, or are doing a lot of patching.

    What I meant is that they’ve rolled out less big mechanics (albeit the mechanics they have released are sort of more complex / fuller). Like, they’re sort of releasing less but better stuff, with the overall effect is less big mechanics getting released.

    eg I think the World Congress was likely meant to get released with RnF, but maybe held it back to work on it more. As a result, it’s more complex, better developed, but it came out later than it could have.

    But. What I’m saying is very subjective. So, yeah, not saying I’m 100% right about this...

    I just feel like, overall, Civ VI has a longer development cycle. Like, they’re building a brick house, and not deliberately going slow or dragging it out, but they are placing bricks very carefully to make a very sturdy house (but then it does take longer to finally get the roof on).

    Guess we’ll find out in about 8 months when they either do or don’t release a third expansion...

    How unfortunate, but keeping cross-platform parity is important. I played Civ5 on Mac, and my PC brother and I rarely could play MP because of the dreaded version spread between them, so I give props for how tight CIv6 updates have been between platforms. Waiting a week won’t kill anyone.

    Since it has been so long since GS release, I hope there is some meat on this update. I hate to talk ill about Civ, but GS came with a lot of glaring bugs that greatly distract from gameplay. QA was too busy prepping for Valentines before Feb 14, I suppose.:mischief:

    The Mac and Linux branches updated again. Assuming my "for approval" theory is correct, they are giving it another go pretty quickly. Which would indicate they have a fixed date in mind.

    Thursday is back in the realm of possibilities, in my opinion.

    So, patch day? I told myself earlier in the week I was going to wait until the patch came out to start a new game, but ended up starting one anyways. Hopefully it doesn't break things, if it does come out.

    I'd say the lack of any 2kqa branch updates this week plus the Mac and Linux-related updates discussed above are consistent with a patch coming today, but I wouldn't bet a lot of money on it or cancel plans in anticipation. (I like to be pleasantly surprised, so I'm keeping expectations low. :p)

    Patch for Civ VI at 1PM EST and a likely announcement of Borderlands 3 at 2PM EST, today is an interesting Thursday.

    From the previous post I thought it was announced or something because it also said something about Borderlands 3.

    I think it was just more of a calculated guess.

    Don't be too disappointed, yet. We've had patches come out much later than 1pm when they're rushing to get things finished.

    I feel like I remembered having later patches. Thanks for confirming.
