As some might remember I made another thread a week ago about how I had been disapointed with civ 5 and had chossen not to play for a while and see if it had gotten better with a few patches(I had not played since the december 15th patch). I gave it a whirl this weekend and I have to say its not as bad as I remember but still needs alot of work. 1. a fair amount of people said the ai was better but still rough around the edges, and I still see people saying "if you dont get the ai your just not understanding it ext.". this to me is just an excuse for a horable ai. While the ai is a little better than it was upon release its still garbage they go to war over nothing and dont recognise real threats. I even had an ai go from frendly to war in 1 turn. the ai needs alot of work. 2. the combat ai while not perfect is alot better than I remember I did not have one ai suicide its siege. ITs not perfect but most combat ais are not so this cant be expected. 3. I like that its actually worth it to build now. 4. I dont like how the ai does not have to deal with the happyness like we do it limits the value in taking to many citys from the ai this needs to be fixed as there is no real reason to take citys except as pupets and this gets old. In conclusion I may play a game this week but it looks like civ 5 is still trash for now.
