    Always intended to pre-order. Finally got around to it with the GMG the other day.
    Looking forward playing Maori in release day. Had applied to take the day off (it's on the Friday here in NZ) hopefully workload will allow it. (My mind won't be on the job anyway I says).

    I'll probably pre-order this weekend. I still haven't watched many preview streams.

    I finally pre-ordered Monday night. It was my birthday and I was A) making sure nobody surprised me by ordering it for me (which would have been a miracle) and B) seeing if I got any gifts of cash that I could use to buy it with (I did).

    Did buy it with the little discount they gave.

    I went back and checked my confirmation email to see if I got the discount, only to discover that I actually purchased it Saturday night because that's when we had my birthday party. Quite a lot happened this weekend for me (my Pats won their 6th Super Bowl!), so my timeline memory is all askew.

    8 bucks is 8 bucks.
    I am going to have to jump on it now though at 21% off.
    Of course one could save more if they wait but like you say...
    We are not talking that much money to begin with.
    Honestly, I have no problem paying full price but I miss hard copies.

    Can anyone tell me what happens with GMG on pre-orders?
    I never purchased through them.
    When the game is available do I go to GMG or Steam?

    Yes, we are already cloudy and ethereal, to hold something is to own something.
    I am lucky in having enough that I can just get it. I do not play much else, this game has saved me so much money, but holding it would be nice

    The last one I bought was Civ V Gods and Kings.
    The guy at GameStop told me it was useless to buy this.
    Told me to just go online and buy it digitally and save some money
    He told me that it won't run without internet and steam.
    I bought the hard copy anyway that day.
    They didn't go out of business but they have closed a few stores since that day.

    GMG should send you an email with the code. You simply go to Steam and register it there. Then it will download as DLC from Steam.

    But don't expect the code until close to release.

    But you can expect it in enough time to preload, usually, so don't think you have to use Steam for that option.

    You will get an email with the code a little before or around the time of release. From GMG:

    I have now preordered due to the $5 off Steam sale. There's no other game I want, especially that I'd pay that much for.

    I've pre-ordered from GreenManGaming multiple times in the past and i've always received my keys with enough time to pre-load.

    My wife got it from gmg for me this morning. They appear to be getting plenty of business with their discount

    Since they have revealed all the leaders and there is currently a Steam discount going, I have preordered.

    Still no news on the modding side, still waiting before buying any DLC/Expansion.
