    A tone else notice that the game crashes more frequently since the patch for Kublai Khan and Vietnam? I used to have a crash maybe once in a game of about 400 turns I've had 3 and I'm only on turn 119.

    I finished my last Civ 6 game several weeks ago and hadn't played again until two nights ago. I haven't experienced a crash yet, but I have noticed that the game and graphics are decidedly slower. It feels decidedly less optimized than before the recent patch. I've generally felt that the developers have done a remarkable job getting Civ ported to the Switch. I do hope that Firaxis hasn't added so much to the game that the Switch can no longer handle it.

    FWIW, the game feels more stable and snappier as of yesterday's patch that included the Barbarian Clans Game Mode. It also seems like saved games load faster than before, but I could be dreaming.

    My crashes have decreased, it seems. I haven't crashed yet in my game of about 180 turns. Fingers crossed.

    I saw that expansion packs and NFP were discounted, so I bought them also for Switch. I haven't played on Switch for quite a while, now playing first game with everything included, small map quick speed and no modes, and there's a crash every now and then. 72 turns - no less than 4 crashes, with a message 'There was an error in the software so it had to be closed' or something to that effect. Menus open with hesitation and what with those roads? They certainly do not look right. Mildly frustrating experience. I'm becoming paranoid of console versions.

    It's been a while since I've had that many crashes, I thought this latest patch fixed it. As for the roads, I've sent another request in because that's really bugging me. I still prefer to play on the Switch, but that's despite Aspyr and their bugs.

    Coming late to the party, but I still have pretty regular crashes. They seem to happen much more when I'm loading a game - either starting a new game, or reloading an earlier save. I do think there has been some improvement in the number of crashes when I'm just playing though.

    Similar, though never when loading. It'll play for quite a while, then crash. I have it auto save every two turns, so a nuisance more than a real problem, but still.

    I really enjoy the game, but I'm really disappointed with the quality of the port.
