    I haven't been paying much attention, I assume that the recent Switch videos haven't shown anything new that would lead us to believe that there is new minor content or UI Changes.
    I also assume that 99% of the Switch development work is being done by Aspyr (or a similar 3rd party) and I know they would want to be working on a stable code base.
    I also assume that there was no PC Patch when the iPad release launched.

    Unless those 3 assumptions are invalid, I would project no new PC patch until the Feb Expansion.

    I only watched the latest one posted in the all quiet thread. I didn't notice anything new, but i'm not the best spotter of minute details. The cuts are kind of quick, so you can't get a good judge what's going on.

    I would not be surprised if there's a patch at the time of the Switch release, but it would likely be only bug fixes that aren't replicated in the Switch version. Like the unit staying in the city center when a city becomes free. I would be surprised if a patch with gameplay changes was released before Vesuvius.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think the iPad version didn't actually launch with the latest updates to vanilla. So there's definitely the precedent for them to launch the Switch version with an older version and port the patches later. I agree it would be sort of odd to do from a marketing perspective. Otoh I think they basically announced the iPad version in the middle of the R&F promotion, no?

    There was a whole ramp up to the R&F announcement with the major fall patch and Ed doing '1 year anniversary' interviews as well which seems a little late to happen and keep the same timeline.

    If it keeps going like this Military Tactics is going to become the most important tech in the game.

    "Somewhat" Off Topic ;):
    I do not expect a 2018 autumn patch. I do not expect another expansion coming within the next several months.

    By not 'expecting' I will be all the more surprised whenever they do occur. They will be pleasant surprises, other than most of the changes I've made to the game files (haven't the modding skills I had with civ5), which will have to be re-thought or redone.

    You could travel to Antarctica for 6 months, and then you might be pleasantly surprised when you come back. Although I'm sure they have internet down there, so you probably can't keep away from the news down there. In fact, they probably play Civilization a lot down there as there's not much else to do.

    I don't expect a Fall 2018 patch at all. If there was no Switch release (*cringe*) and no possible leaks of the second expansion i'd have given a moderate chance though of their being a Fall 2018 patch.

    I would be extremely surprised if we got a patch before the end of the year. I'm fairly certain the next patch will be released with the new expansion.

    It would be nice if the new patch arrived before christmas. But I guess it's unlikely.

    I hope so, there are several features missing that should be there such as gifting units, issues with ranged units that when in quick combat perform a melee attack (happened witht the immortals), and the conquistadors which are broken new in they do not convert cities upon capture and can't escort inquisitors.

    Still waiting for a functional UI and for MP to get to a point where de-sync and connection issues alone don't derail games with < 6 players. Still not going to hold my breath on that wait.

    Imagine if people complained about Georgia or Egypt as much as they did about England.

    Georgia and Spain perhaps.
    Bottom line is Firaxis appear to prefer to have a range of civs rather than a balance. Issue with England is they nerfed them so bad they ran out of bullets.

    Sorry for off topic (kinda):
    I am not familiar with R&F yet, but is England less or more overpowered in that one?
