So, I am loving this game. I abhor the ill reviews that it's garnished thus far, but one glaring fact remains; multiplayer was promised. So... WTF? It's time Stardock. Despite all the hate that has come your way, I don't think that it's deserved. As far as I'm concerned, you've delivered a very solid fantasy TBS game, and frankly, it's all that I've expected/waited for. But, you did advertise that it would be multiplayer... on your box even. It's been more than a week, and though I'm glad to be playing the game, it's not what you promised. THERE IS NO MULTIPLAYER. Perhaps you should have stated, instead of "Compete against up to 16 human or computer players locally or online." on your box, you should have said "IN THE FUTURE YOU'LL BE ABLE TO compete against up to 16 human or computer players locally or online." Don't get me wrong, my love for this game is not waning in the least, but it's time for me to throw down against my friends... which truthfully, is why I bought three copies and gave them away to my friends. It's time. Launch it. We all love it, and thus far have been mighty forgiving, taking into account the trials and tribulations you have all suffered with broken street dates and horrible reviews. But now, we want to play against each other. Please deliver.
