    I've never played MP games and have been worried about this part of it. We all know it's pointless but the cheaters out there will probably want to get into games like these so that they will be the only cheaters in the game (as they're not willing to learn how to be the best players to win I doubt they'll want to learn how to be the best cheaters to win either), so how do you tell if people are cheating?

    I'll assume from that that you are fellow sandgropper. It seems that we in the other side of the world get's ignored.

    As far as I am concerned all those from oz can join any game I'm on if using MPA guidelines is ok. On weekends I might be willing to stay up real late...let me know and I will take a nap so I am rested up. Once played a mmorg for 30 straight hours so I can do it - just dont want to do the 30 hour thing often lol 1/year maybe. In fact why not have Austrailian/NZ MPA games it is only a loose coalition of players using the MPA guidelines.

    I will be picking up Civ VI today, and, once I get a handle on it, I would love to participate in the MPA.

    Sign me up, Scotty!

    I think I don't like idea of AIs in multiplayer for some reason.

    Darn it! I've only got Civ IV!!! :lol:

    Seriously, I've got my copy, and it runs fine with my ATI card. I'll start looking at MP games in a week or two after I've gotten the hang of the new gameplay mechanics.

    I'm a supernewb. I'm bad at Strategy games in general, and I've never played a civ before. Would be glad to hook up mature players of either same skill level or high patience :p

    Perhaps you should consider different time zones when ordering the list. Surely it will make things easier if the ppl are in the same time zone. :)

    Question: Will there be coop-games (Humans vs. AI)?
