Looks like I will have to wait some hours to be able to play - damn you steam -, but in the meantime can someone tell me how good is the multiplayer on BNW? Is the hybrid turns working?

Ok, now Im playing with a friend.

The hybrid turns seems nice, but that bar at the bottom is huge. Why not something more discrete?

It depends on what you want out of hybrid mode. For the 2 big Civ Multiplayer groups, League and NQ [Aka No Quitters] for the thousands of members of those 2 groups, Hybrid mode isn't really feasible because of how they poorly designed it. Luckystrike proposed a great solution in the MP forums to fix it, but anyhow...

For playing multiplayer with a few friends, Hybrid mode is certainly a decent thing. As long as you don't mind playing in several sessions with your friends, Hybrid mode should be fine [But make sure you do everything before you end your turn, otherwise you are unable to make trade offers, switch techs, switch production, etc. that the developers poorly chose for Hybrid mode to restrict].

The World Congress is amazingly fun too in MP, I am sure you will enjoy that. Culture victories still feel really hard in multiplayer, but should be easier to do than pre BNW [Just don't expect other players to trade works and stuff]
