"We loved the base game when it came out last year and its newest DLC, Galactic Civilizations III: Mercenaries, builds on top of that rock-solid foundation."
Rock-solid? People have been complaining about huge changes happening every patch, some even saying that every patch made the game worse. Any guide or in-depth video mentions bugs galore. Just last week another huge change came in (Coercion up to 50%), now it's back to the drawing board. Not looking rock-solid, if you ask me.
