    I think they will address:

    1. Last built building notification bug
    2. The pin drop bug
    3. Movement bug when there's an encampment and the unit you order tries to move thru and ends up attacking it

    I guessed these because they are obvious and common and likely have pissed off a lot of players.

    Of course what I would WANT them to fix is the AI but that's a whole other story..

    The AI "fix" is probably going to be a longer, slower story over several patches (and expansions) rather than a single patch...

    I'm expecting a nerf to commercial districts though! Maybe something about religious game too.

    Depends, really. Are we talking modded or unmodded here?

    Moderator Action: It looks like the off-topic "when is your Spring Break?" discussion has faded, to be replaced with discussion of the state of the Civ V AI. Please return to the topic of this thread.

    Let's just drop the thread until Monday comes, now that we received a bucket of cold ice water on our expectations last week.

    1. I think that some work will be done on the AI. I don't know how much (obviously), but I expect some of the worst cases to be adressed (mostly the problems with city sieging and unit upgrading).
    2. I think technology and civic costs will be increased once again for later eras. I haven't played unmodded for quite a while, but I know that their last increase was a fraction of what the 8 Ages of Pace mod does, which is the mod that most people (including me) use.
    3. "Last built" will probably be fixed. I can't believe that's going to be a hard thing to fix, but it's going to matter a lot and they'll be aware of that.

    EP, a question. Why do you think the patch might drop on Thursday? Patch 1 dropped on Nov, 18, which was a Friday, Patch 2 was released on Dec, 21, which was a Wednesday. :undecide:

    I`m thinking the patch will hit 60 days (ish) after the last patch. Probably an announcement the day before from the developers. Possibly a live stream. Tuesdays the announcement. Patch on Wednesday. (likely with a live stream)

    There never were announcements before patches. Why should they announce it this time? They didn't even announce the DLCs.

    Outside of banking and government, it's not a particularly real holiday. People still work and go to school mostly.

    For their sake, hopefully the SDK/workshop integration and/or team multi-player are included in this patch - those are the two biggest complaints I've seen outside of AI and diplomacy issues. And both of those should be much quicker fixes than AI and diplomacy issues.

    Why do people even accept mods that improve something so substantial??

    Unmodded-

    What would the mods be if I wanted to use them?

    Hi all,

    CIV VI downloaded a 16.1 MB update today morning. Search on the Internet revealed nothing interesting. Any idea what the update could be about?

    The 16.1 MB download is a few days old. It is only support files (Visual C++ redistributable) for the game. There was no new game content of any kind (Patch, DLC or otherwise). There is anticipation of DLC and/or patch coming soon.

    Schools (which are run by government unless they're private, most of which still follow public school schedules) are indeed out on Monday, but I highly doubt that would have any bearing on Firaxis, a private company.
