The Civilization Games

Recommended Posts

The tanks losing to pikeman stuff has always been the downfall of civ games for me. That just rips you out of the game and makes you frustrated.

Had a go of 5 last night, downloaded a demo off Steam. Pretty good, seems to play a lot better than 4.

 

I'm in two minds about buying it as its potentially a real time thief. Even after just messing around with the demo and not achieving much I was left wondering where the last two hours had gone.

Yeah I've had a look at a few reviews, their biggest gripe seems to be that the AI is shit.

 

Didnt notice it too much during the demo, but it would probably become more apparent as you got deeper into the game.

Civ 5 is crap. Dumbed down appeal to the console boys pile of shite. I tried, I really tried to like it, but its crap.

Gone back to Civ 4 with Rise of Mankind mod.

I bought Civ 4 A while back as it was on offer, I've always fancied playing but never have and the lukewarm reviews of 5 put me off that version. Had a few hours on it over the weekend and I'm slowly getting to grips with it, there's a hell of a lot to take in though.

I like Civ4 a lot. The fact that there's a lot of different ways to play, and lots to take in, is a good thing.

 

Start at a pretty easy level to get the hang of how things progress.

I'm getting there but it's tough. I've worked up two difficulty levels and I'm currently dealing with additional Barbarians! I'm learning that you need to have different cities specialise in different things but it's a hard to get the balance right and not just follow the AI's recommendations. I'm pretty good at getting my score up and researching quickly but warfare seems to be my downfall, again I seem to be slowly understanding it.

 

I have a decent game going with Egypt; got about 6 of my own cities and then a German one wanted to defect to join me and I've taken a couple of Greek ones. I've just hit the first research needed for space flight and started turning out more military units as I first look to conquer this continent before crossing the water.

 

This game is addictive as hell!

    • If we don't strengthen in this window then we won't be retaining the league. Its obvious to everyone that the squad needs strengthening and it will be a very bitter pill to swallow if we don't spend for the second summer going.    You never stand still in football but it appears that exactly what the club want to do. 
    • https://www.swr.de/sport/fussball/juergen-klopp-hat-sich-in-liverpool-unsterblich-gemacht-100.html .   Jürgen Klopp has led Liverpool to the first championship in 30 years. The successful coach speaks exclusively at SWR Sport about a crazy party, his men's flat share and lessons from the corona crisis. Relaxed. More relaxed. Jürgen Klopp. The master coach of Liverpool FC sits completely relaxed in his apartment during an interview with SWR Sport and chats with pleasure over the past two weeks. Since June 25, one thing is certain: Klopp has led his team to the first championship title in 30 years. But this feeling has by no means settled. "It hasn't really happened yet," he admits. In the 4-0 defeat at Manchester City, his team got a "real crack" and they have played every three days since then. It will probably take some time before this feeling of happiness has settled. But the time window is not important because the title is "for eternity. It is much better than not being a master."     Liverpool FC wants to celebrate in a "crazy way" In any case, one is planning to let it rip again with the fans in the coming weeks or months. At the moment this is not possible due to the corona measures. "The moment we can do that again, we want to celebrate the title. Even if that is a little strange, if you celebrate another title several months later. But Liverpool is an exceptional club, we will surely get something done "We're going to try to celebrate the title in a crazy way. We want to celebrate life. People can now plan longer so that they can be there. Maybe we can make something out of it that hasn't existed before." Klopp is certain that despite the title already won in the three remaining Premier League games against Tottenham, Chelsea and Newcastle, his players will not be burned out. "The boys are always on fire. They went right in previous games too. We have been relatively successful for two and a half years because the boys are exceptional."   Klopp plans to return to Mainz At some point he will surely return to Germany, he reveals. "Definitely to live, after my career. Most likely even to Mainz", where he was successful from 1990 to 2008 first as a player and then as a coach. He also has a clear professional plan: "Four years in Liverpool." After that, after nine years on Anfield Road, he wanted to "do nothing for a year". He may then have the first opportunity to do "what I want, what I 've Bock. Perhaps a club, a team, or nothing." He adds smugly: "But in five years the world can look very different again." Corona crisis needs to be analyzed Jürgen Klopp is one who looks beyond the limitation of a training place. In addition to the intensive support of his team, the soccer teacher is busy dealing with the corona virus in these weeks. In England the pubs are open again, you can go shopping again. "The development of the numbers is positive, but people are still dying. The delay at the beginning after the correct measures were taken did not pay off." Klopp is careful not to play the know-it-all. "It's easy to criticize if you're not responsible. You have to wait and see." It would be important if one "did an analysis in the future of what would have been correct and how can we handle it in a comparable situation in the future." It seems that Germany has solved the Corona crisis relatively well. "But if I follow the German media, not everyone will be happy with the way things are going. Above all, nobody can be happy with the effects on the future, for example in terms of jobs." Liverpool coach expresses a wish to deal with pandemics like Covid-19 in the future. "We should make sure that we are better prepared as a society - and I mean global society." The virus would be with us for quite a while until an antidote or vaccine was finally found. "It would be worth calling a world holiday where everyone remembers what it was like in 2020." Premiere: living in a men's flat share The 53-year-old currently lives in Liverpool in his apartment with Matt McCann, the media director of Liverpool FC. His wife Ulla is in Germany. An unusual experience for Klopp, who grew up in Glatten in the Black Forest. "If you come from the Black Forest, you don't live in a shared apartment, but in an orderly relationship," he says with a laugh. The two men had a clear division of tasks: Klopp was responsible for the laundry, McCann for the rinsing. What is he particularly looking forward to now? First on the remaining three games in the Premier League and then on a side trip to Germany. "I'm most looking forward to going back to the restaurant and enjoying the new normal in Germany."
    • That may be so, but hopefully this causes UEFA to close loopholes and run a tighter ship. Given the nature of the decision, this need not be a bad thing for the future of FFP as long as UEFA have the will to implement a more stringent version of it. 
    • Watch them go out and sort their backline. These pricks beat us 4-0 two weeks ago, regardless of whatever was riding on it at the time. That should scare people. I was living in the hope this lot would get their comeuppance but thats gone now.
