  1. Plenty of problems, errors and bugs?
    Lol nonsense. A lot of players have been praising it for having very low amount of problems.

    I am playing on a laptop that isnt quite the strongest and am managing fine. The only problem i encountered was this health bar problem. Outside that for me it works perfectly. The only things i really hear is that it lacks civs and that hotkeys and all arent really sufficient. Mainly small things that most players wont ever notice.

    Game runs fine.
