Civ 6 is on sale this weekend with Steam, but all I see are an endless series of negative reviews slamming the AI and the "warmonger" status.  Any of you have buyer's remorse?

I still play it occasionally. It'd be nice if diplomacy worked but it's still fun without it. I've heard there are mods to improve the AI but I haven't used them since it doesn't seem all that different from other Civs to me. Civ AI has always been dumb as a bag of rocks and needing copious amounts of headstart to compete with the player.

I want to like this. I have yet to complete a game though. One of my biggest complaints is that its too difficult to really get a feel for how a city is doing statistically. Plus too many things that you basically have to memorize in the civipedia if you don't want to screw yourself. Hmm, where should I build this district? - pause while I look at the adjacency requirements for 17 different wonders.

The game is not focused on "tall" cities much at all, so you're worried about adjacency too much if you're researching it like that. There's a limit to the number of districts a city can have based on population anyway.  Build wider and don't worry about maximizing tiles of your cities. The max radius of the city combined with hex maps means you have too many possible productive tiles to ever work them all efficiently anyway.

Just what I've found playing through. I'm no civ expert these days. I never go above Prince because it requires me to be too aggressive with the military.

It's a poor game.  Gorgeous to look at, and with more buckets to fill than any version of civ yet, but it might actually be my least-favourite iteration in terms of gameplay.  Over-complex and overly inter-dependent systems (this from someone who even enjoyed Hearts of Iron 3) and surprisingly dull (and this from someone who plays Eve).

It's not even hard, as such.  Just meh.

I want to like it more than I can. Fundamentally the brokenness of the diplomatic AI combined with its pervasiveness is what makes me unable to do it. If it were just a flavor sub-system, well, ok, but it's not--it's interwoven into most of the gameplay.

Absolutely got buyers remorse here - I even bought the season pass, which is the first and last time I've ever done that.

The game's AI simply does not work. It is in a worse state than any other version of civ, and 5 months later still hasn't been improved. The AI does not understand the basic gameplay rules - it doesn't build districts properly, it doesn't build armies, it doesn't understand how to move its troops. At the same time, it's insanely aggressive on the diplomacy front for no reason - nations who have no reason to dislike you will declare war like clockwork (it's on a timer, and as soon as that timer is up they declare). Although they often don't have an army anyways.

It looks pretty, and has some interesting ideas inside it, but right now it's just broken. My least played version of civ to date.

I'll wait for the 2nd expansion pack.

I didn't buy it, but I watch quill18 on YouTube play games. That satisfies my itch.

AI is definitely terribad.
