• Do you think this hotfix is a sign of things to come? Or do you feel that Firaxis is just putting this out to make the majority feel a little better – only as a distraction from the other numerous problems? Let us know – voice your opinions!

• Some say the hotfix hasn’t fixed anything, others say it’s causing numerous crash errors during games. What problems, if any, have you experienced?

• Clan KC is running a Civ 6 Training Event on Tuesday, November 28th at 5PM EST! Come and learn with the community! I know i’ll be there!
