did you read my last posts? I do not think so....... WHO has demonstrated that the RNG is giving tan acceptable amount of randomness to make playing Civ3 fun? now don't go implying I am an idiot just because your intellectual capabilities are not sufficient to get that I am talking about something esle - or is it that you cannot admit having misunderstood me? I take such behaviour as a personal insult, you obviously are not willing to discuss what I was talking about but what to snob me with your posts. let me tell you, I have been playing Civ and making tests on the RNG for longer than you imagine. I also found the RNG to even oput IN THE LONG RUN - but I still found that very often, the first (decisive) few battles were so far off the middle ground that the strategiy aspect of Civ was too unimportant for my liking. Get it, reply to what I am talking about, or leave me alone..
