    Just picked up all the extra civs not in vanilla or G&K for under $7 US. Not a bad deal!

    Good tip i picked up all the dlc for twelve bucks. Already had the expansion so I essentially paid 22.50 to have it for two extra weeks but who knew?

    Hi guys quick question:

    I have vanilla civ5 with no DLC's and have been unable to join any multiplayer games because everyone hosts with DLC enabled.

    So my question: if I purchase Gods and Kings only, will I be able to start playing multi again? Or will I still need to purchase all that other DLC separately?

    It's low enough that I'd actually buy it if Steam would let me.

    I'm really stingy when it comes to DLC, but given the support the game is getting still, it's not too bad now. It's about what you'd probably pay per civ in an expansion.

    Too bad Steam won't take my money. They need to put the DLC in the next expansion...

    Everyone will need the same DLC.
    If e.g. somebody has Babylonia (in the MP game), and you don't, then you'll not be able to join. If you have G&K, but they don't have it, they'll not be able to join either.

    Do people tend to include DLC in their game? Would I be safe with the vanilla game andd G&K's only?


    Basically is Gods and Kings worth the $7.50 for multiplayer only?

    I don't play MP, so I have no real idea.
    From the threads, which I can see in the MP forum (which is only a fraction of all MP games), it seems that often DLC is included.
    But I'd suggest that you should ask that in the MP forum, that might give you a better answer.

    Bought my first DLC's. I now own every DLC Civ except for Polynesia, but I didn't think I'd play them much, anyways.

    Just adding that Civ 4 and its expansions are also 75% off, dropping Civ 4 complete's price on steam to a measly 6.24 €/$.

    Wasn't thinking I would ever get 5 after having 4+expansions and 3+expansions on Steam but this was too good to pass up. Just now got G&K. Seemed too good to pass up paying 8 bucks for something normally 30.

    i think it might be worth it just for when people upload a save for you to play/try but it had all DLC enabled. Plus they can be nice pushovers as AI.

    Bought CiV + G&K with something like 17,5 euros, pretty good deal.
