I am curious who will decide to wait and pay later? I know that the bulk of customers will pony up the 80 bucks now so they can get the game as soon as it is available but when you do the math... the smart play is to wait and play the game in 6 months to a year. There is no doubt in my mind that the game will be bigger, better, and cheaper in a year,so why pay the money now when you and I both know the game is broken? Perhaps it is best to buy the base game now, if your into Mods so that you can fix the game the way you want from the jump? I can see that. If your not into Mods... better to wait I am sure. I guess the real answer is that if your gonna play Civ you should get into modding the game or playing Mods. I would like to hear any and all comments from the community!!
