I am currently renting this game thru GameFly and have had it since it released. I have really enjoyed the game and I'm debating whether or not I want to buy it. My friends and I play a lot of private MP games and it seems to be getting to a point of being somewhat stale. It's the same thing over and over with no real parameters to change.
I guess my question is that I'm wondering if we are ever gonna get any kind of update that will give us real multiplayer game setup options. Things like being able to choose victory conditions( Domin, Tech, Econ, Cult, just 1 or even multiple conditions), AI Difficulty, # of AI opponents, what AI Civs are in your game, different game options like the Scenarios where we would be able to maybe start out with All Techs or Barbarians are more aggressive or a gold amount we could specify, also maybe a time adjustment feature (do I want turns to pass 1yr, 5yrs, 10yrs, 100yrs, etc...), the ability to let someone back into a player/private match if they happen to get disconnected. I appreciate simplicity to a degree, but IMHO CivRev MP options are too simple. GameType, Timer, Civ, go.
I'm not trying to rant about the game b/c I want it to be better. I want it to keep my attention and finally make me buy it. But I'm not sure that in its present condition that I will. Also these kind of suggestions might go well for a Single Player Mode as well. Like a Create Your Own Scenario mode. ALSO do you think we could ever get the old Continue Playing Option when a SP game is over like in all the PC Civ Games. Sorry for the long post and thanks for listening!

Reason: forgot a line
I agree some of these features would make me keep the game.
