I bought the Civ6 expansion this weekend. And honestly, I'm not really a fan. The loyalty system seems decent as a method of more or less keeping your civ contiguous and hopefully will help the AI not be so aggressive in forward-settling against you. But the "era score" system that determines golden vs dark ages is completely opaque, so you don't know what you need to do to get the points to be able to keep yourself "in good shape" and thus it feels more like a "find out how we want you to play" feature, rather than a "series of interesting choices" like Civ games are supposed to be.

Crafting is a lot of work, but it's oddly satisfying too. And I suck as a healer unless everything's going right. So... I'm fine when I'm with good players, and I can't carry bad ones, since I'm just not good enough. Which is probably why I don't play healer much....
