Civilization V
Hey guys, just wanted to post a thread about this game, pretty sure there is no other thread about it. I love this game series, so here you go!

"Sid Meier's Civilization V (also known as Civilization 5 or Civ 5) is a turn-based strategy computer game developed by Firaxis, released on Microsoft Windows in September 2010 and on Mac OS X on November 23, 2010. It is the latest game in the Civilization series.
In Civilization V, the player leads a civilization from prehistoric times into the future on a procedurally-generated map, achieving one of a number of different victory conditions through research, diplomacy, expansion, economic development, government and military conquest. The game is based on an entirely new game engine with hexagonal tiles instead of the square tiles of earlier games in the series. Many elements from Civilization IV and its expansion packs have been removed or changed, such as religion and espionage. The combat system has been overhauled, removing stacking of military units and enabling cities to defend themselves by firing directly on nearby enemies. In addition, the maps contain computer-controlled city-states as non-player characters that are available for trade, diplomacy and conquest. A civilization's borders also expand one tile at a time, favoring more productive tiles, and roads now have a maintenance cost, making them much less common."

"Civilization V is a turn-based strategy game, where each player represents the leader of a certain nation or ethnic group ("civilization") and must guide its growth over the course of thousands of years. It starts with the founding of a small primitive settlement and ends after achieving one of the victory conditionsor surviving until the number of game turns end, at which point the highest-scoring civilization, based on several factors, is declared the winner. During their turn, the player must manage units representing civilian and military forces: directing units to explore the world, found new cities, go into battle to take over other civilizations, control production in their cities to produce new units, improve land, handle diplomacy with other civilizations in the game, and finally direct the civilization's growth in technology, culture, food supply, and economics. Victory conditions can include taking over the entire world by force, convincing the other civilizations through diplomacy to acknowledge you as a leader, building the "Utopia Project" wonder by adopting social policies or winning the space race to build a colony ship to reach a nearby planet."

So yeah, I have played this game and the one before this (Civilization Revolution) a lot, and I thought I might as well make a thread about it. Tell me what you guys think!

Where I got information:
Myself, I have the demo of this and played Civilization Revolution on the xbox 360, and

If you read, the youtube tags weren't working, if someone would edit my post and fix that, I'd be delighted. I may get some pictures on there too.

Also, yes, it may be old news, but it came out last september (2010) so not very long ago. I also didn't see another thread about this.

Edit: Fixed youtube tags or w/e, videos should work now.

Ive been a pretty big fan of the civ series, but really, civ V didnt evolve so much from the IV sadly, but i really like the new military system and the natural wonders.

I played a bit, but I have no idea about current meta. I might like to get in to it some time if we can get some people, but I still play dota and seriously the meta looks a bit hard to get in to.
<Faint> the rules have been stated quite clearly 3 times now from high staff
