Epic Civ 5 Game, Anyone?


#1

So, does anyone want to start up a solid 10-15 hours playthrough of Civ 5 anytime soon?

Sounds good, What kind of dlc/settings etc.? When would we do it? Could be interesting to see how I compare to someone that’s not my brother (I’ll probably suck hard).

That’s what she said, but more importantly, that’s what I think will end up happening to me, too.

Anyway, I don’t have the Brave New World, Epic game length (hence thread title), whatever difficulty, and random civs. I don’t know if teams would be a good idea or not, and if people who know better say that epic is a bad idea, then I’ll listen! Because I have no idea!

Eeeeh. I’ve never been a fan of the Civ games. I’d be up for a Shogun 2 co-op campaign with someone, though. I find Total War much more entertaining (just my opinion).


#5

Hmmm, well, unfortunately, I donae have Total War 2, so I wouldn’t be able to participate.

Anyway, would Mr. @Geoffers747 or Mr. @SteveAdamo be interested in this match? Not all in one session, of course.

I know that my normal strategy of just going peaceful as Venice and crushing everything with economy probably wouldn’t work here. Although that needs BNW anyway, I’ll just hope I can remember how to run an economy without trade routes. Epic game length could be fine, just remember that this could take 2-3x longer than a single player version as warring players don’t go at the same time and sometimes players can make tough choices which can briefly extend turn times massively (religions etc.).


#7

True, true, true. Anyway, I’ve never actually played Epic (yet), only the other three. I’ve literally played about, say, 10 games? But I consider myself a strategy aficionado (or at least a hobbyist).


#8

I’ll join too!
Please?
Authough i have baisicaly no DLC for this, it looks like none of you do either? Not sure.


#9

Ok, so attendance list so far (aiming for at least 2-3 more!):
Myself-

I feel like we should all friend each other on steam, as when we get the stonehearth on the steams, we will prob want to play multiplayer together there too.


#11

Ok, good idea. Can anyone guess what my steam name is?

That’s right! It’s Man_Of_Ret!


#12

I have all the DLC, Got it a while back when it was 75% off for the release of BNW with me living in Australia and getting it online I ended up getting the $90 game for about $12. But yeah I’ve got BNW, G&K and all DLC civs. What about you two? What civs/expansions do you have?


#13

I got the Gold Pack during the Summer Sale, so I think that includes everything BUT BNW.


#14

Yep It does. I haven’t actually played Civ 5 in a while, been playing more Civ 4 and they are fairly different games before mods or G&K/BNW come into it.


#15

Anyways, as soon as you Steam-ify me, we could start a short practice session to prepare for the Big Dance?


#16

I added, but i have no DLC, as i’ve not gotten around to buying it yet.


#17

Well, by the looks of things, they don’t.


#18

Remember there is the gold edition upgrade for if you’ve already got the base game, it’ll probably be like $10 for you and includes all DLC + G&K but NOT BNW or Civ 5.
Remember we’ve got the Stonehearth steam group as well which comes with it’s own chatroom.


#19

I buy things using a steam gift card, i’d have bought it if I had enough money, i’m basically on no DLC right now, as i’ve got to go refill my steam wallet.


#20

Ok, That just knocks out the DLC Civs and G&K+BNW, Be interesting to play vanilla again. I’ve only ever done that once and it was back when it was still pretty new.
