    I made my own policy to not pre-order. Upon release almost all games have bugs and/or balance issue. I buy about four weeks after release, when most of these issues are resolved, or wait until it is on sale.

    I haven't actually pre-ordered yet, but I do intend to purchase it before release, so I voted "yes." I'll likely buy it at the end of January.

    Exactly the same for me. I have a $50 Steam card burning a hole in my virtual wallet :)

    I finally got RnF not too long ago. I typically wait for a game to go on sale on Steam after it's first big patch. I've been playing since the original DOS Civilization.
    I've ignored most of the game's off shoots, like Colonization. meh.
    I did like how VI made me think of cities in a new way with districts, and I'm looking forward to the new Civ's changes...eventually when it's on sale

    FWIW it's already on sale, and it probably won't go lower for quite a few months after release. You can always wait for a better sale, of course, but I'm pretty happy with the discounts already offered.

    I'm waiting for it to go on sale on Steam, hoping it does before release. Over $60 in steam wallet so don't want to buy it elsewhere.

    Can you buy an expansion on GMG (Or any of those other sites) if you bought the base game through Steam? Also, can you have it launch through your steam library still?

    Yup, they just give you a Steam key.

    Just pre-ordered on Steam for $30.34. I had .05$ saved up in GMG credit from pre-ordering the last expansion.

    But still less than 50% pre-orders.

    Should we start a poll to change the forum's name into "Civconsiderates"?

    I just buy as soon as it's released

    What's the advantage of pre ordering

    If you can get it at a discount, you'll likely save some money, as games are rarely discounted at release. But if you're unable or unwilling to buy it at a third party store like GMG, then there's no advantage to preordering.

    Preordered through GMG this week now that we have seen most of the civs. So much variety in playstyle this time around and I finally pulled the trigger. Marketing did their job!

    I preordered 8 weeks ago through GMG when they had their first discount. Trust them because I ordered Rise and Fall with them and it was just great.

    Knew I would love this new expansion and I haven’t been disappointed thus far nor expect to be with the remaining civs and reveals. I’m not happy with one civ, but It’s not an issue.
