That's how many people are on steam playing it, not how many are playing online matches.

Civ V isn't really the kind of game you just play with some stranger...at least it doesn't sound appealing to me.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

Yeah, I'd never want to play with someone I didn't know. Without 'your turn' texts I just don't see a match being played to completion.

two reasons.

1. a game takes 5-7 hours to complete, and thats if everyone is snappy with their turns.

2. a certain trading glitch that allows people to steal your cities.

Because even if you do get a full game with real people, within an hour they will have all left the game... so you might as well just play a SP game.
