Recently there have been quite a few contentious discussions going on about the merits or drawbacks of DLC. Rather than continuing to have multiple separate discussions spread out across threads where it's not particularly relevant, we're setting up this thread to serve the purpose of the venue for such a topic. So the basic thread question is: do you like the current DLC model (whereby smaller additions are sold for lower prices than an expansion)? What are the advantages and disadvantages? What do you think would be the best model for releasing additional content for Civ5? A few ground rules: As always, post within the forum rules, or you risk infraction. Specifically, remain civil at all times. Address the points made without attacking the posters making them. More specifically, comments such as 'those that buy DLC are idiots' or 'those that hate DLC are idiots' will be infracted. Remember, this is a discussion. Ensure your post makes a positive contribution to that discussion. Do not post other threads on this topic, and do not make other posts on this topic in threads where it is not relevant. The purpose of this thread is to prevent other threads from being derailed on this topic.
