    When Civ 5 came out, many people were disappointed in it, compared to the other civ games before.
    So my question is, when will you buy [GandK]?

    -wait for reviews and if they are good, then buy it
    - wait until a sale to buy it
    -or not buy it at all

    I absoluely despised Civilization 5 when it came out. It was not a worthy successor to civilization 4 and i was really disappointed at how it turned out. I was so excited for it and then when it came out I was thoroughly dissapointed. After waiting a few months after some patches and tweaks i came back and it slightly changed my mind. I have fun with it now but i never settled into it. I put 500 hours in 4 and 80 in 5. I just couldnt get into with the lack of features that civ 4 had. Gods and Kings looks to completely change that. Addign in the new features and gameplay aspects ramping up the strategy and brain power it takes to play this game. I'm gonna buy it on release because my hope is that it will save this game and add 400 hours into my play time.

    Summer sale. I'll get it cheaper and possibly with a balancing patch already rolled out.

    Definitely pre-order . If the bugs/exploits screw the game too much,we can always count with the dedicated team of modders to fix it .

    The weekend after release. Too busy and tired during the week to do anything but read forum posts.

    I will be buying it on June 19th though because I am from North America.
    Canada, to be precise. Go Canucks! :band:

    +1. When CiV came out I pre-ordered and even used a proxy to trick Steam into releasing it on the US release date rather than the UK release date (3 days difference if I remember correctly.)

    But this time around I'm nowhere near as enthused. I'll pick up, but not on day 1 and not for full retail price.
