    This game smells like Civilization meets Travian, and then meets Farmville. :D

    Of course, I'll never try it to see it, since I don't use Facebook.

    This is a reason why I avoid MMO altogether. After seeing how much time my brother spends on Travian, and what kind routine it is, I decided to never ever play similar type of game. Especially since they reward mostly "drones" who have too much free time to be active all the time.

    I prefer games in which I'm the master of my own time, not the game.

    I am looking forward to this game, especially to play it in teams with my real Friends and Family. I like playing the Zynga games (those are -ville games) because they let me play games with those people. I'm going to wait for Beta. Although, I do hope this game is all its cracked up to be, unlike some games we know... (cough, civ 5 cough).

    I'm REALLY curious to see how they do game play, if its like most facebook apps that require you to wait so many hours/days to do something because I don't see how turn-based would work on FB.

    I imagine hes been a lot more active than you with your impressive achievement of under 100 posts a year.

    Moderator Action: That's enough, stick to the topic.

    Yes this is the brand new civ game that will replace civ 4 and 5 and fix all of civ 5's problems. The wait is over hardcore fanatics, this game will steal your hearts and make you forget about civ 4 and 5. Seriously this will be more polished than civ 5. THIS IS BLASPHEMY!

    I signed up, but I'm really not expecting much. It's been awhile since Firaxis laid anything better than a cold turd. With any luck this one may be room temperature.

    Strictly from a gaming business perspective, Sid and Firaxis can't ignore the full spectrum of environments for their franchise. Civ 1-5 have made PC gaming history, and CivRev expanded the franchise to consoles. With millions of people on Facebook (myself included), it would be foolish to voluntarily stay *out* of that market.
    Don't be hating on the company for expanding the franchise.

    Multiplayer Civ has been around since "Civ 2 Multiplayer Gold Edition", with varying degrees of success. Competition has been the norm, with some level of cooperation built into the game in Civ4 and Civ5. It will be very interesting to see where they go with CivWorld, since Sid's note and the details of the closed Alpha seem to indicate that cooperation will be key.

    The implications are intriguing ... by forming a team that logs on asynchronously, you can reap the benefits of cooperative research without having everyone log in at the same time. People shared resources in FarmVille -- you could water a friend's crops. So, you could contribute beakers towards learning Iron Working? Or contribute gold towards upgrading a unit?

    At least Sid designed it, and maybe it won't even require Steam to play!

    What on earth makes you think Sid didn't fully endorse Civ V? For that matter, what makes you think some of the things you don't like about Civ V didn't originate with him? His games have been trending casual for years (cartoony Pirates!, Railroad!, Civ IV was even panned as uber-casual initially).

    Firaxis is (more or less) Sid's studio, and he's responsible for everything they do.

    I am agreeing with this. Having played (fanatically) the original RRT and Pirates!Gold, I was very much dismayed to see how "cartoony" they had become. CivRev is a cartoonized version of Civ and CivWorld will be even more so. Those of us that played strategy games in the 1990s are being left in the dust by those that want simple, quick, fast-paced games where it's more important to chat "OMGWTF" to friends instead of using comtemplative critical thinking.

    This. If you look at Civ5 and listen to Sid's speeches, it's exactly the sort of thing he was aiming for.
