The whole spearmen occasionally defeating tanks is debated to death on civ fan forums all the time.

Main thing is really it's just an avatar of a low-tech, cheap military unit against a high-tech high-resource one. I mean, if you're going to say it's the same spearman you created 2,000 years ago... While we're at it, the tank unit is maybe 4 tanks while it'll be 100 spearmen or whatever.

Sure they could probably change the graphic more as the eras progress and turn it into guys with pistols and molotovs or whatever, but then it'd be harder to keep track of whats going on.

Regardless, yeah a spearman could take out a tank. Tanks are crap at unconventional warfare. Hide up a tree, drop down, open hatch and stab everyone inside. Or dig a pit trap. We lost tanks to civilians with molotovs in Iraq. Shit, we lose tanks just moving them around because they fall apart.

There was a point in Civ IV when it was clearly happening too frequently, but it should always be possible for a spearman to defeat a tank.

And how many tanks do you know enter a fight without Infantry nearby? That's right...none.

Look, we can debate this all night long, but the fact is, a spearman from thousands of years ago wouldn't know the first thing about planting an IED, let alone how to open a hatch. If anything, like a previous poster said, they'd probably freak out or better yet, bow down at the awesome sight of it. lol.

Did Civ5 fix the problems with the earlier games where a spearman can take out a tank?

You mean the realism factor, where the spears shouldn't even scratch it? No... I think everyone who's played Civ has thought it should be that way, but making units become completely obsolete would destroy game balance and turn every match into a tech race. Of course spearmen are still way weaker on an even playing field, but with numbers, upgrades, and/or terrain bonuses you could still reasonably defend against a tank or two. The same applies to crossbowmen or musketmen; common sense says they'd just lay down and die when faced with a giant armored beetle moving toward them, but how'd you like the game if you were on the short end of that stick?

Then the race dies out...simple as that. Throughout history, civilizations that don't adapt die off. Heck, older units could get free upgrades to the times based on trade or diplomatic relations. For those of us who faced it from the opposite end, it just sucks to have your modern weapon of war get owned by a spearman, when you'd think you'd roll over the civilization. It's good to know that it's improved but it's still pretty dumb to allow that to happen.

I'm really digging the revised combat system, its completely destroyed all hope that i'll EVER play Warlock - Master of teh Arcane......

Basically instead of 10hp, they have 100hp, and they tweaked the dmg, so things dont die in like 2 hits anymore, more like 4-5, now taking cities is a real undertaking and defending them easier.

AI is much better (i play on prince - normal difficulty, no AI bonuses and no negatives)

They did a good job, i'm happy /w my purchase

If people play this shit, why wont they just make a good next space sim shooter?!!

Probably because this is a 4x game vs. a space shooter. Two different genres here....

But, the Evochron series by Star Wraith games is pretty fun

While I'm sure the intent was mostly sarcasm, the 1.03 patch, which is due by the end of the month, will adjust the loot tables to make inferno farming somewhat more viable. Source.

Until then I am gone.
Im really getting sick of only being able to farm act 1 inferno and only see crap drop that maybe sells for 5k.

I think they want me to play a demon hunter, cause every other drop is a quiver or occasionally a hand crossbow. I don't know the last time I saw a wand drop, sometime back in nightmare I think :/

Even with full stacks of Nephalem and I see drops explode off a boss I have a hard time getting excited about it.

It's no better for us Demon Hunters. I seem to get more wands and monk gear.

Also, all of Paradox titles on steam are on 50% off.

Things like:
Warlock Master of the arcane
majesty 2
defenders of ardania
crusader kings 2
sword of the stars 2
king arthur series

I'd suggest waiting until the last day of the steam sale though, since they are doing daily sales for a few days. (June 11)

That's what I was going to do for Defenders of Ardania since I heard good things about it but if it doesn't drop anymore by tomorrow, it and the DLC are still a great price

You, my friend, need to read EULAs a little more. You don't "technically" own any game. You are licensed to use it.

Dumbed down skills trees (Actually, what skill trees? LOL) no assigning of attributes....graphics that are barely equal to Torchlight.

Pass.

I think the graphics look better than Torchlight 2. The ones in Torchlight 2 remind me of the blocky 3D ones we first saw with 3dfx cards.

Unfortunately my hype for D3 has lessened of late. I spent a weekend with Guild Wars 2 and it's all I can think about. They call it, the GW2 Effect. The inability to think about, let alone play for more than an 20 minutes, any game, especially an MMOG, after witnessing the glory that is Guild Wars 2.

Trust me, I have it bad.

I was the opposite. I've been in the GW2 beta since it started. Played it once for an hour, never touched it again. I found it pretty boring and hated the camera angles. Still, I have been finding a lot of games boring lately. I was in the D3 beta for months and just started playing it several weeks ago.

Umm thats nothing but a CIV 5 mod...what the hell

No it's not. Just because the hexes look the same doesn't mean it's a mod. In your thinking, even Civ 5 could be a mod of any tactical hex game or the early HoMM games Rolleyes

I was intent on not buying this when it comes out because I dislike the strict, always online connection and that there will be no modding. Some of the best mods I have ever played were in D2 and that made the game fun for hours and hours. Unfortunately, I don't think I will play D3 as much as I did D2. The quirky server issues and lag were bad too but I have faith that it will get better.

However, I will most likely buy this because, yes, it is Diablo and some of the most fun I had in college was staying up late and playing with a guy on the other side of the country for hours and hours. I still remember the original Demo in PC Gamer and how I kept replaying it over and over again.

Of course, my wife doesn't understand my gaming habits, but now that my older son is getting to the point we can do co-op, I think this will be a lot of fun too.
