This is a forum that Firaxis staff clearly read. That seems to make it a good place to rally voices of dissatisfaction. You believe criticism is unhelpful? Suffering in stolid silence sure isn't the solution. We don't need to know why Firaxis' haven't improved airpower. We just need to agree that it's not unreasonable that after these years of Civ VI enjoying success for fans to expect a quality pass that addresses a major area of letdown. We just need to agree that there's something unacceptable about it. If people can agree to that, rather than just dismiss it as a dead horse getting beaten (and people literally said that) and suggest that complaints be relegated to a subforum (also said), then away goes polarization. What constructive discussion is there other than expressing the desire for improvement? Modding? Good for some, but not all players use them. I don't use mods unless they have fairly cosmetic impacts on the game, and it's for the simple reason that game elements are interconnected. Change one, and you must do a holistic balancing pass on the others. I don't expect that from mods. Should I?
