Hmn, I'm not sure, but I think this makes me a gift horse (don't look in my  :D)...and Boogie Man a horse's ass? 

Um, thanks, I think? 

You guys have fun.  Personally, I don't want to go back.

the surge is open players not ladder.
the game is a free for all in civ3 ladder
I think for me the time has come to go forward and find a newer game that I can get a game without all the rest of the bs that comes with civ3 game
is just frustrating
everyday
wait hrs for a game
then when you get it its either declined ,oos,drops,save checkers,smart mouths,cheaters,oos,is just never ending .wheres the fun??
time to move on I think
even admin hates me.why because?
I am right!!!
period

I don't know if there is really any "surge." Just the normal ebb and flow with the constantly-retreating shoreline you would have to expect from a game that has been twice revised and is not generally available in stores for new players to pick up. 

I will say that even I am surprised by this game's staying power in view of all the bugs, connection problems and new versions.  Any number of us still have more fun playing C3C online that any other game that's come along since. 

CN, if you have ceased to have fun playing, then it's time to move on.  Personally I would hate to see you go.  You are a good player and frequent player and I have enjoyed chatting with you about the game and life in general.  I hope that maybe right now you may be more focused on the negatives than the positives and maybe your focus will swing back to the positive things about this community, and you will be back playing again soon. 

As for "admin hatng you?"  Poo.  I only dislike it when you rant in the game or the lobby about "cheaters" and "BS" and "13 deleted reports" without providing any proof to back up your claims.  Those rants don't do this game or community any good.

Hate the rant.  Not the player.

just thinking that maybe it has more to say about the ppl who still play C3C then the game
its self ???


              are we too stubborn to move on or have we found the perfict game for us?
             questions for the ages i guess.


                                   Boogie

                    P.S or could it be we are looking for to play one more turn?

Noodle is funny.. she acts like having a girl "period" alright.  "love me, likes me, hate me dislikes me.. go? or stay?"  Well why dont you relax play the game and have fun..?

I agree with Zardoz not really a Surge but an example how a game can still keep many players playing it, even the ones who have been at civ4 and civ5. I went "forward" as Onan said and saw backward changes in multiplayer. So i went forward again and end up  playing civ3c again.

Civ 3 is the best turn based strategy game of all time.  It is way more fun than 4 or 5 for multiplayer.   It's hard to master.  It is kinda buggy.  But we come back because it is still the best one.

Surge? o_O 

I wish I could find a civ3 player who will play 2 player PBEM...probably isn't going to happen though.  Btw I play on Demigod level, but am willing to drop to Monarch!

I would also love for a multiplayer game (that I'm not involved in) to try one of my maps out, assuming of course people actually play large sized maps like myself.  I've tried to make each starting position very well balanced, and there are typically 5-7 very good/excellent starting positions on each of these maps.  Some of the maps can also be played in different ways given a few slight modifications.  E.g. everyone starting on one continent, all the human players starting on one continent, humans and AI players on 2 contents etc.

Well the fact of life here is that 99% of the games are real time lobby games, PBEM hasn't really seen it's heyday in 10 years, that was always something the SP sites did more than us, other than Intersite Demo games.
