    Where's the "I bought it the second it was announced" option?

    Bought it for a birthday present for myself. So, a preorder for me. There is enough engaging stuff in it to get me excited and most of all, the Mongols. :love:

    Listening to the Mongolian music while plotting an invasion of a large empire... like a beautiful dream :D

    It’s amazing stuff. I’m so happy that my favourite Civ will have such awesome music. It sounds just like cavalry galloping across the steppe and the throat singers....Oh my!

    Can’t wait! :love:

    I still haven't gotten around to pre-ordering it, if they had some incentives to do so, I would have already done so. I'll buy it some time before Feb 8.

    I was going to wait, but when it was on sale at GMG a few weeks ago I figured that was a better sale than it'd be on steam anytime soon, so bought it then.

    I think I’ll wait until I read the patch notes before buying just to see what’s included and/or what to expect. Assuming a patch will come with the expansion.

    Where’s the “I’m waiting for it to be bundled with the next expansion in a Steam Sale in 2020?” option?

    GMG just sent out an email with 25% off R&G good until 23:59 on Feb. 9. I actually pre-ordered it a few weeks ago at about 23% off as it didn't seem to be getting any cheaper and I didn't want to let that chance expire. So I could have saved about sixty cents if I'd waited. Guess I can live with that.

    I ordered it from them when they first announced, I believe it was 15% off. This is the 2nd time they've offered 25% since then. I'm a little annoyed.

    Has anyone received their Steam key from GMG yet?

    Side note: 0/10, would never order from them again.

    Edit: It's not the $3 I care about. It's the optics that they're fine with screwing people that buy early from them. I don't do business with companies that lack morals.

    I bought it yesterday. Would have bought it earlier had there been any bonuses. Just want to make sure everything is ready to download tomorrow night.

    For those preordering from GMG, I haven’t got a key yet......so I don’t know if playing at midnight will be an option.... course I may be looking for it too soon...

    Every time I've ever pre-ordered from GMG, I receive the email with the key at time of release, not sooner.

    Yep, despite voting for "cautiously buy at launch", I instead not-so-cautiously pre-ordered it with that 25% GMG discount a few weeks ago. I figured it probably won't go any cheaper than that within the first six months, and I'd be damned if I was going to spend more when I inevitably caved after launch anyway. :lol:

    I got it earlier for Vanilla but they made preloads available for Vanilla so that probably makes sense.

    With no preloads available for Rise and Fall I wouldn't expect the codes to be released before midnight EST

    I preordered it around halfway through the new civs announcements. Aside from possibly money and if you're for some reason deeply unhappy with the game but still post here, I don't see why you wouldn't. People tend to have games in their library they've never even played (I became guilty of this recently now that I work an overtime-every-day job), so I see no harm in pre-ordering a game I'm pretty much guaranteed to play for 100+ hours and get at least some enjoyment out of.

    If it somehow flops it'd make me hesitant to buy any future releases, so uh, I guess that would be punishment enough. Not like Firaxis is Bethesda and will put out some pathetic money-grab like Fallout4+DLC or anything...
