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

This would be good but you would need hours and hours of time to spare.

While I'm all for some AJSA support for this game, I really don't think its the kind of game built for competitive play, at least not -really- competitive.  Starting biases and locations can and will put players at relatively disadvantages or advantages relative to others just from map generation alone.

Agreed, Civilization V is such a great game and is loads of fun online. This would probably make me start playing it more often.

Yes, but one is able to recover and be on top if one has a good strategy.

I'm surprised to see all this support coming from all sides!

Thanks guys, I really hope our proposal makes it through in the end.

And to the whole competetive question:

Well as Mosti states, if one has the strategy and guts one can easily recover. That's the charm, everyone has a bonus which does help a lot, but it's the best tactician which always wins.

Always.

So there is potential for a fun competitive community (IF we made one)

We ran our first event today guys and it ran pretty well, we had a couple of big issues setting up but once it ran it was a blast. I look forward to the next one. All the best - Yoshi

Well I see we've been rejected. Which sucks, but all we can do is keep on with our group. I'll post a link later.

Amazing and addicting game. I've played over 640 hours of it and that's a lot considering that I now have over 300 other games on Steam, half of which I haven't even touched (yet). I'd be down for playing more multiplayer here and there, but we would need to dedicate an entire day to play it, especially if there are going to be a lot of people in a match.

I own this game, no expansions. I have never really played however, I got the game for free when I pre-ordered XCOM. Would anyone be interested in couching people in the AJSA?

If you mean as in just playing around: Here's a link to a small group some of us from AJSA made: Are you a spy?

Because Civilization doesn't support clans/groups in-game.

Trust me, I find it sad as well.

But some of us have a group where we play and such.

There's a link somewhere.

Yeah I was invited to one last night on Steam, I don't know if it's one of yours, but it's apart of the AJSA so that's a start.

 

Though, I'd like to argue that though it doesn't support it in game, it's really easy to make up clans/groups outside of game on the networks that host them like Steam. Wouldn't that count for something?

 

Well, maybe one day. Until then, I'll just be glad to start playing games with real players, I'm tired of playing against a stupid AI!

Trust me, we've tried. But it's fair, the AJSA doesn't have too many resources now. So they need to sort it of course.

That is a good point. Oh well, let's hope for next year then right?

Just join the army and as my first move, I give my worthy support to this idea! The steam group is also a good backup solution for AJSA civ 5 players. 
Ill join your group on Steam...got pretty much all the DLC's (except scrambled nations) and i cant wait to play against humans insteat of the predictible ai!

Yes im 100% with this game! But when i play with my friends, game starts kikcing people off from the game around 100 turns in on large map. If they work a new updait for that then we can start play it.
