I'm sure this will only make his impression of the game worse... He will claim that any idiot can now defend even easier, and that they have removed the concept of war totally from the game. It seems the only strategy in the games he prefers is an early rush. This will now be even harder.Originally posted by trev
Now the game has been updated with the 1.52 patch, which incidentally makes it harder to mass attack cities early successfully as injured defenders retain their firepower, and only lose health, not strength now, there are greater opportunities for the games complexity to show itself, and therefore further play of civ4 may adjust your impressions of the game.
