Sometimes it's good to be lucky and good...
If there is one wish a poor Liq has for Civ5, it is for Sirian and Sullla of RB1 - Cuban Isolationists fame to be offered early playtest spots in this game. Both men are perfect for really helping make a game seaworthy.
Suffice to say that the two of them were instrumental in introducing Civ4 to many of us back in 2005 from not only that hilarious succession game, but also in their initial write ups outlining the richness of gameplay. All of which would not have happened if both had not be involved in testing that fine game.
Not a personal friend of either btw, just much respect. I just want to see civ5 be given as many innate advantages as possible.
Yeah, nice games, i basically learned the difference between Civ 4 and older versions of Civ from these AARs. And it was fun to read it. However, i think they focused too much on religions, that wasn't an optimal strategy.
