I just finished reading Sulla's analysis of the last patch and the general state of Civ 5. http://www.garath.net/Sullla/Civ5/whatwentwrong.html I'm nowhere near a high-level Civ player, but I've always enjoyed Sulla's blunt assessments and detailed walkthroughs of the game. I began reading them around Civ4 and in many ways they have enhanced my own enjoyment of Civ in general. Just wanted to share my appreciation. I admit I've spent more time reading the forums and following the ebb and flow of the controversies surrounding Civ 5 than actually playing. I love the art style, the quotes, the awe I feel when pondering the important people, works and wonders throughout history that the game highlights. I have had more fun with the game since the last patch but I find it hard to argue with the logical deconstruction that Sulla et al provides. Whatever the future holds, thanks again for all the insight.
