Yuppers,

sorry for fading on the PBEM-multiplayer, it was frustratingly slow. I would suggest if we try to fire up a game, we do it live. Start a game and continue it whenever it's suitable for all.

I picked up BNW when it came out and I like it (although it's rather pricy). The most essential part are the trade routes, which generate vast amounts of money and give a lot of substance to political and strategical geography. The culture and ideology revamps are alright, though I don't fancy the new tourism system that much (imho it's almost impossible to win a Cultural Victory before discovering Internet if playing large enough map). The new world congress is a nice addition, I like it more than the old UN.

I'm right now playing a multiplayer game with my wife's brother, and it's been bloody but entertaining. I'm playing autocratic America and we've had three wars so far (it's 1950s atm). He has managed to get a trade Embargo decision on me in world congress and is currently trying to get Standing Army Tax (extra unit maintenance) through, which I'm afraid might be accepted. It's funny how he can fight against me without units by crippling me through economy :) dang it!


Oh, and what kind of game Civ V is: it's the grand old champion of turn based strategies, so it's hardly anything like Age of Empires. I would maybe compare it to Paradox interactive's super heavy strategy games or the tactical map in Total War series (not the real time battles). First Civ came out in early 90s and I think it was based on an even older board game initially, although it has wandered far off from its roots already.

City management and all got a little heavy for Civ5 on me since I always seem to start out on islands separated from everyone and everything else. Any tips on how to get around this, because whenever I get off the tiny island the other empires already have iron and I'm struggling to keep up with an army.
So (insert meaning of life and REALLY important stuffs here) and that's what I'm all about!

Life is about the Journey!

Yo!

Now that I have a computer than can adequately run Civ V, do you have room for one more?

Teams of 2 with at least 1 Ai team.

Pretty good played for the last month or so every day with some Friends won most of the games. Also have the xbox 360 version.

How would you prefer the game to be set up?
I don't care much, though I have a slight preference toward a live game (non-pitboss) since it would go quicker.

Do you have the expansion (Gods n' Kings)?
I have all the expansions, civilization DLC included.

What type of game would you prefer?
No locked teams unless there's only 2 or 3 humans in the game.

How experienced are you with Civ V or the previous Civ-games?
Never played Civ IV or before. I'm pretty good at Civ V, though I haven't had much experience playing against other humans. My greatest accomplishment was a pre-Industrial cultural (Tourism) victory :P
