How much can be changed and added by Patches and DLC?

    While cruising through these forums I have come across countless ideas for new content, fixed gameplay and reworked AI.

    How much of this is wishful thinking and how much of it could actually become a reality? Anyone know of future patches/DLC up and coming?

    To answer your question, how about: "Not enough to make you happy." :lol:

    The sky's the limit probably; it's just a matter of how much they WANT to. They have made some major revisions via patch (like Diplomacy, where they totally axed the Pacts of Cooperation and Secrecy since they were so vague) but generally major changes are saved for an expansion pack. They're adding Hotseat too, which could count as a major addition to some. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Well, anything can be changed by patches. One simply need look at other games such as WoW which, due to patching mostly, is dramatically different from how it launched.

    The real questions are how much resources they have to commit to patching and how much drive/motivation they have to change things. Right now I'd say the former is probably the bigger problem, since it seems like Firaxis is more focused on the facebook game right now. But you never know. Maybe in six months they'll surprise us and have a major overhaul.
