    Hi,
    I am new to the game, have a few months CIV 5 experience though. When I played CIV 4, I used the Editor very often to cheat so please don't count that experience in LOL

    I look forward to the MP side of CIV 6 mainly because such experience was missing in CIV 5, I guess that's because I was a late comer in CIV 5 so no body were actually active enough online, bought it just less than a year ago.

    I may ask stupid questions because after all I am very new to the series. I will also crazily post some of my experience up without a very good presentation nor great writing skills because I am not quite literate but have great interest in history. So do excuse me if ever I wrote something meaningless. :D

    Technically, I come from RTS genre, most notably is Rise of Nations + Thrones and Patriot, Company of Heroes I & II, Age of Empires II (LONG LONG time ago). I don't play FPS seriously, except maybe Battlefield 1 but don't expect me to be loyal to that cause that doesn't require thinking and the use of strategies.

    Also, I used to be a big fan of adventure games, point and click, Syberia I & II, The Black Mirror I & II, Fahrenheit, Moment of Silence, Overclocked, which I have played them to the end.

    I tried to play other turn-based games like Sin of the Solar Empire but couldn't bear some of its features so gave up in the end.

    But I like CIV series. Had a couple of hours already online, and great experience though I am still very doggy about how district plays out but like one of the added features of borrowing CS's military when request, really useful and logical as far as a simulation is concerned.

    Hi,

    new here. Been an on-again-off-again visitor over the years, and for some reason I realized I hadn't created an account, so here I am.

    Been playing the game since the original Civilization back in 1992/1993, I believe, and have really enjoyed Civ V and now Civ VI.

    /P

    Idk what made me create an account. Like many others we read the forums yet never post. I guess I feel like changing that. Played from the beginning civ 1 through 6. With an embarrassing 3000 hours in 5 and guessing another 6000 spread amongst the other 4 titles. Dove right into 6 and have good first impressions. I like the series. :)

    Avid player since Civ I, played all the way thru Civ IV. After a break bought CiV in a sale, instant addiction again. Civ 6 a 3rd day buy, not blown away, but trusting with right patching things will clear up.

    Hello to all
    Very long time observer (since the beginnings of civ4 I guess), finally made the jump to membership! Spent hours on the forum especially on the last few months :). Been a cub player since the beginning on amiga, loved all, especially civ4 (except for the SOD and ICS), was a bit disappointed by civ5 at the beginning but loved it anyway and clocked a lot of hours on it. Can't wait to get hold of my new gaming laptop and civ6. And can't wait for firaxis or modern to address the most blatant issues in ai and balance and ui.

    Howdy folks.

    I've been poking around the site for a long while now, but never made an account. So now I finally have, primarily out of a sense of "why have I not done the thing?". And here I am.

    I've been a long time fan of Civ. Most of my experience with it is with Civ III, Civ City: Rome and Civ Revolution (for PS3); Civ V took over my life, I dipped into Beyond Earth and now I'm living in VI.

    Not sure how much I'll post, and I'm sure that I'll forget to check the site quite frequently. But hello! (Covets lands you currently own.)

    Similar to many others - I'm a long time (if somewhat on-off) player of Civilization (Civs 2, 3, 5 and now 6). Have lurked on these forums from time to time over the years but never quite got round to signing up before. Keen to now so I can get involved with the new Game of the Months on Civ 6!

    Hi all,

    I am back here after many years, from the times of Civ3. I even had a nick ¨Civilizator¨, that I have been
    unable to recover because the system doesn't recognize my password after so many years.

    Hi there,

    I've referred to these forums for years, but have now finally decided to join with Civ VI supporting mods on the Mac version. I have been playing since Civ II (though I skipped III), each one a mac version, back to the OS 9 conversion of Civ II by MacSoft. After the disappointing mod support in Civ V I'm pleased to see Aspyr has included mod support from release for VI.

    Hah, I've been posting for the past month or so and didn't realize there was this Welcome thread.

    Anyway, hello there! Been only playing since Civ V vanilla.

    hi.

    im your on call Doctor and will be playing civ thru all my surgery.

    In fact the creative part of your brain gets more activity when you play strategic games. So when im operating i get more creative. Its like "whow lets connect, that one to that one". And... "That one looks weird, i best cut it off and use a garden hose instead". So its good, helps me be on top. When you play first person shooters its a whole other part of your brain. Its mostly spinal reflexes but it makes me like, crazy mad when you get teamkilled so its hard to be concentrating on both. Interesting, isn´t it. No? Ok... Lets moooove along, as the cow said.

    I Brought game, hope you did too.

    I love to joke around. Laughter is the best medicine.


    See ya all around

    Dr.Draker M.D spec. Trauma / emergency care

    oh forgot to say, welcome all newcommers. lets all pray they´ll make civ 6 as moddable as civ 5
