    Ask South Koreans why Starcraft is so popular.

    Shoot. I was hoping online would be available. I mean, I'll still play the heck out of it, but online would have been nice

    You can take over everyone for a domination victory, or become the world's dominant culture for a culture victory, or get voted Leader of the World in the World Congress for a diplomatic victory, or build the Apollo Space Program and fly to space before anyone else for a science victory, and I think they added a Religion victory in Civ 6. Multiple ways to play the game and win, all valid. One of the things I love about Civ.

    do civ games really take multiple hours like how people mentioned? I actually never played a single game from the series

    I played a couple of RTS games in the past which seem a little similar with the exception of turn based type of style which is why these series probably take forever to finish a game.

    However from playing different games online that are not FPS games i can safely say that long hour games people would state were actually from newer or players that lacked skill hence they would move very slowly and progress very slowly in games.

    The best part of these type of players is that you could take them out within the first 5 minutes and move on to another opponent, yet they would complain how you would ''rush'' them or not give them enough time to defend. These types of players failed to realize that giving ''extra'' time was just a waste of time for the other opponent seeing as component players could scout and defend properly when some silly raids or attacks were headed your way.

    Is this series anything like age of empires?
    3-4 hr games are too long who the hell has time to play those type of games? Or actually who would want to

    I have never played a civ online. The amount of time it can take without speed run mods is really high. It’s a game meant to take time to play. A slow non-rushed type of game. To play with real people, you’d have to plan game times. That defeats the purpose of playing in the first play

    I wonder what's their reasoning for this, besides keeping the PC version superior (which in itself I can't think of a good reason for doing, I mean a sale is a sale, right?)

    Armello matches last way less than Civ matches, but they still take 3/4 of the Switch battery AT BEST when playing online. For one single match. I don't agree with the decision, but I can understand it.

    I have 5 Civ games (from I to V), even Alpha Centauri. Never used any single online feature in any of them.
    It's just not needed, really.
    The online in this particulr gmes are a bit like matches of chess, and can take AGES to get anywhere, and ending a multiplayer game, even local, should be a challenge on itself.

    Very confused, if it ever does get released to PS4 and XBONE I wonder if they'd take the same approach.
