That's a very interesting article. He's not shy about Civ V's flaws (even 1UPT which I love) so it is interesting reading. He is, of course, trying to sell At The Gates and he only brings up Civ's flaws to explain how AtG is so much better but it's still a frank and interesting look at designing a 4X game.

Yeah, I was impressed by the amount of candid admissions.

The main question is whether the changes will be better. It's relatively easy to figure out what you did wrong, but that doesn't mean you've come up with something better - your new approach could be equally wrong, or even worse. That's not to say it won't be better, but I'll want to see a finished product before making up my mind.
