Civilization V **[Ineligible, No Guild/Clan Need]**

51 posts in this topic

So me and a few other dedicated fans have created a large thread on the strategy section of the forum. 

(Links for all CIV threads I know of: 1 2 3)

Since this has finally been implemented, I thought it was my duty to suggest Civilization V

It's a wonderful game, as Joe said in his review ''It's addicting as hell''

It is a strategy game, revolving around macro management, and efficiency. Yet the game has some amazing details, so it doesn't feel too simple. It has leaders from the real world, and many traits which are inspired by real world policies. With the DLCs of Gods And Kings as well as Brave New World we have seen a great addition to the game. With things as espionage and tourism, the game has only become better post-launch. 

The game has a in-game multiplayer component, and one can easily host a huge scale game. However time is an issue, but one could host games in weekends etc. The multiplayer sessions are great fun, and it's soo satisfying nuking another players capital and hearing his/her reaction over Teamspeak. 

However, there is no real competitive scene in Civilization V, although we could all chip in, and perhaps create the first e-sport for the Civilization series. (One can only dream though)

I think as a community, having Civilization supported would greatly increase interest in the group. So for example: Strategy fans, looking for a good game with nice like-minded people, can join the group and join our games.

I hope I am not the only one feeling, that Joe should support this game, especially after his review of it. He praised it for it's fun mechanics, and simple yet satisfying game-play.

I hope all of you will vote this up!

(Ps: We are a few members who have organised a group already, however because of this we may need to merge it, if the game becomes official. You can find us here: Click me! (This is the same link as link number three))

Thank you for your time.

-A big Civilization fan

Cons and benefits of Civilization V:

Benefits:

  • The game has the Angry Joe ''Badass seal of approval''. (Link to the review: Click me!)
  • Great community behind the game already, adding it to the supported games would only strongen AJSA's strategy fan-base.
  • Suprisingly customizable multiplayer component.
  • DLCs are not required, however nescessary if one has a DLC and another doesn't. However one can easily create divisions for X DLCS.
  • Not a steep learning curve, pretty much everybody can play if they have tried a match or two.

Cons:

  • Although customizable, the multiplayer component lacks some specific features (As far as I know) like custom maps and mods.
  • Games tend to last several hours, and it would require great dedication and coordination to host a full match. 
  • Multiplayer WAS (It wasn't for me in my latest game) a bit buggy. However I am adding this as a con because it still could be. (Seems to be disproved, but it's a fair con to put on anyway.)
  • No competetive scene in this game. No leaderboards for MP matches or anything. A scene can be created in AJSA itself, but there isn't any competition scene in Civilization V.

Hopefully we can get this to take of, its such a good game to just chill and talk to friends. Or make them your sworn rivals by nuking them! - Yoshi

I Think Civilization 5 should be added as a main game because it's a game where many players can join each other, fight with or against each other and just come together and play. Civ 5 is a great game to bring the AngryArmy community together, switch out ideas and just play together and have fun!

PROS

1. Great game to play with friends/groups.(Lots of teamwork and communication)

2. Very addicting and easy to learn.

3. Many slots so more players can join each other.

CONS

1. Easy to get defeated by experienced players.

2. World domination can cause problems to players seeking cultural victory.

3. Saved games can be destroyed if new players join after loading a saved game.

This would make a lot of sense for the first strategy game for the AJSA. Even though the games can be long, there are mid-game saves and it is a lot of fun with friends.

Civ V would be a great game for us, a ton of multiplayer support and a huge community, not to mention a lot of people think it's one of the best modern strategies out there today. There is one problem i could see happening. With a few different expansions it would be a nightmare for someone who doesn't have any or only has some of them as you have to have the same expansions as another player. I have the Gods and Kings expansion, and haven't yet purchased Brave New World and it takes me a long time just to find a match at all.

I also only have the Gods and Kings expansion, add me on steam and maybe we can play together! :D

Hey guys, not to rain on your parade, but there's already a new game request for Civilization 5. Glad to see that you guys are all for supporting the game, and was wondering if you would want to join me and about 20 more people in a steam group called "Angry Joe Show Army Civ 5". I know mizgog is already a part of the group, and if you two are interested, please join here! (http://steamcommunity.com/groups/AJSAC5) ^.^
