Hello all. I just purchased Civ 5 and to be honest, the game blew me away. Battles make more sense, sieges are more balanced, early game expansion is better, policy system is much more flexible, there are logistics in the game rather than unit stacking on a tile and you can spend gold after currency rather than having to wait until you get universal suffrage (or build The Pyramids in BTS). However, I've only been playing it for 10 hours as the UK on Chieftain. In my next game, I'll increase the difficulty by 1. On the other hand, I have a few minor issues with Civ 5: - trade routes to capital are ominously cut off at times. I check the roads between the affected town and the capital, but usually see nothing wrong. I will try to look harder. - City bombardment doesn't work for me. Croxis told me it's left click on target button, then left click on the enemy itself to bombard them. I just wish to confirm here. Other than that, that is all.
