Hello, I have been a silent visitor of Civfanatics for a long time, I have played all Civilization version from the very first till the current number 5. I always liked the game and still do but Civilization 5 is such a piece of crap when it comes to crashes and stupid things which for me makes it no way fun to play this game. I havent been in the modern age with any of my games because they all just at some point crash and keep crashing around the same turn. Not only that I have no clue why some decision where made in regards to the gameplay. One example is the starting locations, which idiot, yes you have to be a pure idiot, to not include historic start locations as the very first mod was one to add those. Really I thought you guys learned from Call to Power but no…. Is it just to frustrate your customer ? Most features I like, I really do until the piece of crap crashes and I’m ed to get any further with my game. This has happened with mods with historic start locations. Maybe thats why it isnt in the game as its giving issues ? Anyway I tried to restart about ten times now which is all good fun but now I’m at a point I just dont know what to do, I’m running two notebooks one with windows 7 and one with Windows XP. Same issues over and over again. They should be ashamed to launch a game like this, specially when I check the bug report forum which constantly has new topics forming. I really hope these bugs will be fixed Its just not fun to watch your empire grow and grow and then your game crashes and keeps crashing. I love to play the game as it has really nice features compared to the old games but this isnt currently playable. For now its back to EU3 or Victoria 2 I guess. Sid your lastest game sucks when it comes to stability, customers are not to be used as beta testers !
