    On the boat with you there, buddy - I like to call it the 'opposite of ADHD'.

    To sleep or not to sleep: that is the question.

    I'm gonna get to bed around 2-3ish here. That'll give me three hours to play BNW without completely wanking up tomorrow.

    1. Release game in NA.
    2. Let everyone else who have paid for the game wait three extra days (for no good reason).
    3. Complain about piracy.

    Great work.

    I suspect that I'll need to download the entire expansion. I can't find any sign of the "expansion2" folder mentioned in this forum and checking the DLC options when I open Civ does NOT show a grayed out Brave New World DLC choice. When G&K was released at midnight, I had a 2 - 3 hour download before I could play. So.. starting play 5 or 10 minutes past midnight doesn't look likely for me. :(

    I got a nap in this evening. I'll likely just stay up now until 11pm here and fire up a game. I think I played till around 4am when Gods and Kings dropped. I'll probably do that again tonight.

    Maybe try restarting Steam and then verify game cache......you might get lucky and it might download......

    I've pre-ordered the game but only after the latest patch and no pre-load for me.

    Strangely, if I start up the game and try to click on "DLC" from the main menu, nothing happens; not even a pop-up to enable/disable my current DLC. :sad:

    It hurts because it's true.

    Don't forget step 4: Slowly forsake the PC as a platform and justify it by citing the piracy you helped create almost deliberately.

    It never does. I think it's too late for that gambit...just have to wait with everyone else for the bewitching hour.

    I do not think it means what you think it means.

    What I really want to try is a game on a larger map with a metric assload of city states and Austria, Venice, Greece, and Mongolia, with all victory conditions except diplomatic and domination disabled. That could be a fun free-for-all.

    Has this worked for anyone since the patch hit? I think there was a window of an hour or three after it did where people got the preload, but apart from that, I don't think we've heard of anyone downloading it since, have we?

    Well I believe I pre-ordered it on 7/2 and got the preload.
