    Biased questions are biased. :p Also where's "pre-order"? ;)

    I guess that'd be "at launch."

    Yes, pre-order is needed. And without trolling if possible.

    I won't pre-order unless if they give a pre-order discount, but I basically can't see myself *not* buying it on release. Like, I'm almost 100% certain that I'll want it eventually, so may as well basically buy it on release unless if it really has horrible reviews.

    *edit to add: Although as a Canadian, if they announce Canada as a civ, I basically have to go pre-order it then...

    We‘ll see preview let‘s plays, so we don‘t need to wait for reviews.

    Well, that's at least one person buying on launch but not pre-ordering, I'll go add it to the polls.

    Updated. Hopefully not too much at anyone's expense, but I couldn't help but put at least something resembling a joke in the pre-order option. A contributor to that is that I don't have the forum savvy to remove the jokes from all the other options as well.

    I preordered it mainly because:

    1. I already enjoy Civ 6 despite its flaws. 1400 hrs in my record actually speaks for itself.

    2. I do not buy too many games. I only have less than 15 games in my Steam account, and I have no plans to buy other titles (yet)

    3. Exchange rate for the Philippines is a big deal (our currency is falling) and I got the preorder at almost 1000 Php (21 USD) compared to 29.99 USD as advertised.

    4. I will get it anyway because Firaxis is known to improve games through xpac. (I also enjoy XCOM2:WotC than the vanilla)

    Edit:
    I would be deferring my purchase if I was a Mac user, but thankfully, I am not. But I feel the sentiments of the Mac civ fans.

    Depends on when the DLC go on sale for 50% off. My current goal is to play at least one game with every existing civ before buying R&F. But I'm contenting myself with only DLC 6 until they go on sale.

    Then again, if a discount of at least 25% on R&F shows up before then (before or after launch), I may give into temptation and buy.

    I'm 99% sure I'll buy it eventually, but who knows when.

    As I mentioned in another thread - I will be pre-ordering, and the only reason I haven't yet is that Steam Gift Cards fit perfectly into stockings!

    I will pre-order just before launch. There's no point in spending my Christmas budget at this point.

    probably gonna play on launch day to try the new systems and get a feel of them myself. civ is pretty straight forward: (p)reviews will be good and will not mention the obligatory bad AI, so they are nothing to go by.

    It's not even a little bit risky for me to preorder it. I've basically got an expansion out of the digital deluxe edition and the religion patch, albeit a slightly smaller than normal one, and I've purchased pretty much every bit of content from III on. The series is my favorite pastime, and l would buy it eventually no matter what, so...

    Same reason. That's how I got the DLC's so far anyway.

    I am preordering because I know that even if reviews are bad, I will end up buying it to form an opinion for myself,
    so I may as well pre-order in the off chance they announce a pre-order bonus, and so i just get it over and done with.

    Totally pre-ordering. Even with Vanilla, I've not had so much fun playing civ since Beyond the Sword came out.....and Rise & Fall sounds like many of my longest held Civ dreams are going to come true!

    If you buy games on Green Man Gaming, they've sent out a voucher for 20% off of R&F. Not sure what your profile on the site has to look like to qualify. I expect that is close to the highest discount that will be seen for the expansion before it is available.
