After several games and lot of complaining I am fnally into it! But really the ONLY reason why Im still playing ciV is its 1UPT rules and combat system. Often I find myslef spending several minutes planing my next troop movement. Its like a game of chess. The best thing about the combat system is that just because I may be behind AI in terms of technology, I am NOT automatically doomed. I am able to use SMART placement of units and make use of TERRAIN to defeat superior invading army. Throw in couple of Honor policies and a general and things get really interesting. So for me it is the combat system that makes me want to play this game. Which main aspect of the game has caught your imagination?
