I remember the days when a game would come out with bugs, there would be no patches to fix them, and nobody would complain. This happened both pre and post-internet for both console and PC titles. If the main game is worth the cost, I will buy it. If I deem the DLC is worth its cost afterwards, I will buy it. I'm not seeing the problem. Do you think that, by making the DLC and charging you for it, Firaxis is taking another service away from you? Do you think they are legally obligated to work on patches for you? I'm just not seeing the arguments. You paid for the product, the product worked at launch better than most of the stuff out there. No, it's not Blizzard or Valve quality, but that's why they're the best. I mean god, I bought Lords of the Realm 3. Civ5 didn't have a bad launch at all.
