I've never played any Civ in MP... Can't devote the time or the schedule to do this. Civ is a game I can play 1-2 hours at almost totally random times. Which means I've always battled with the AI and all that that implies. Never forget it's 'artificial' intelligence. But I'm curious - how much of our problems with CIV V go away when you're playing with someone as smart as yourself? (I've no idea of the status of MP in civ v at this point ) Edit. Such a n00b me... Just found MP section... Still reply to this if you have a comment though.
