    What if, you know, the game is not a bad game? It's fine to hold your opinion, but you're starting to rambling about the good old days and looking down to people who are happy with their purchase. The same good old days when there was no patch and such, people were happy with whatever purchase they did, happily talking about the great exploit against stupid AI in strategy game, one trick pony in every builder games and called it "great tips". It's still the same as today, just that people have the internet where they can shout the loudest.

    Your point would be valid if his purchase affected only himself. It's been argued time and again that pre-ordering games affects the whole industry by sending a message to developers that sub-standard game development is a-okay. People will just buy it anyway. Look through this very thread - someone has already said they don't care if the AI is bad, they'll just knock the difficulty up. I mean, what? That's literally saying that they forgive bad game development. The ever lowering standards of consumers affects everyone, not just the person who buys the game.

    I never cease to be amazed at the gymnastics people will perform to justify buying a product they don't even know about from an unbiased source.

    Salty - thank you! You are right- the evidence against pre-orders is contained in this thread.

    Next time how about we Civ fans get together and not pre-order together, just to see if the results are any better? Just one time as an experiment, you know?

    I guarantee that at least some of the people railing against the AI will not be able to even beat the Barbarians, on the highest difficulty levels, to start with.

    I think it will be when either they fix things with the AI or the issues are solved by modding. Getting rid of niter would help a lot at this point. Perhaps iron as well. I wil make swords not need iron and musketmen not need niter. Then I'll see if the AI upgrades. I think it will. Then when the devs fix the issue. I won't need the mod. At least in the meantime the game will be more playable. At least there will be AI unit progression which is the real issue. The AI may not be perfect, but it will upgrade and wars will not be so one sided.

    Hopefully our unit creators design a rifleman and a tech for them. This would help the AI progress their armies to infantry far better.

    Thank god [most of us] are adults and can do what we like with our money. But please continue to tell others what to do with their entertainment dollars.

    I am pre-loaded and ready to go. Let's see how the first game goes as America.

    Everything I have seen thus far shows that Civ VI is going to be a good product on release. There are some wonky AI issues, but nothing even close to game breaking. I think you may be engaging in a bit of hyperbole here.

    The game has now unlocked, so people will be posting their actual experiences soon. No more need for speculation. :)
