Apparently a sizeable portion of civ players like it for the history aspect (although civ does an extraordinarily bad job of doing this), so some are holding off on BE for just that reason.

Plus you'll get the people who'll be waiting for it to go on sale, to get expansions, or for the complete version to come out.

Still others think it's just a glorified mod of civ v

But yeah, Civ V will still have a large player base.


The whole point of Civ is to subvert historical accuracy. You can't really say they're doing a bad job of it.

I think what people mean is that they prefer the setting.

"Dead"? Multiplayer is too slow anyway.

Right, and Civ doesn't do the greatest job of that either, largely due to the way it handles technologies.

I don't really know what your specific complaint is.

It's just some wacky "speculative history" based on a planet kinda like earth assuming all the great leaders were around at the dawn of civilization.

It's not supposed to be historically accurate, just inspired by Earth history.
