You are clearly mistaken

and has been proven that it is entirely possible with today's technology to walk down near every path of a chess game. "Thinking" in this case is merely a parlor trick of computation power of decision trees.

As OP posted, if a computer can play a proper game of Go against an expert, then i'd be impressed.

But until then, his comment is pretty spot on.

Verizon doens't say unlimited

the better analogy is that a rope company wants to rent out various different load rated ropes.

you decide to rent the rope with the heaviest rated load.

you tell the rope company that you need one 3 miles long because you wanted to lasso a satellite in space from your home on earth.


The company is then in it's right to say "No we don't offer such long rope" or "Use the smaller rope to do something else" and in this case the rope company actually does have a 3mile long rope, but they say as part of their terms of service you have to be a business customer to use it.

What server you on?

I finally was able to play when i logged onto the Europe EU server, however for the first 25 minutes of the gme itw as stuck in the tutorial and I couldn't leave.

Got booted and got server buy so couldn't get back in. Finally got back in againa nd played 10 mionutes before the server killed my connection. so that was a frustratiing waste of 60%

If you two are playing separately isn't that just single player mode and not required of an always on server?

if you're playing at separate times it's not like you acutally really care about what he does. Perfectly easily to parameterize your city so twhen you two go back online again, the server can take the paramteres and updates the server's version of the city

I certainly don't agree, none of the requirements you gave have any thing to do with an always on requirement.

My friends and I play Civ 5 all the time. My box is the strongest so I always host the server.

I play alone most of the time but when my friends want to play, I set up a server and invite them in. We save the game I can reload it whenever we wish to get other again. I dont see why i need a server for that. We each have our own individual games anyway since we mostly play solo. However if we did feel the need to play together, a quick load and we're back to playing together.
