Posting a positive opinion about a game I can't play is as dishonest as reviewers posting negative reviews of the same game.
I am in no way suggesting that those who dislike the game, or those who are having problems playing the game should go out and write positive reviews when they ARE NOT feeling good about the game experience.
But there are many of us (I'm not saying all of us, or most of us), who are able to play the game with no problems and are enjoying it. And it is to those people whom I say get out there and let people know how good it is. I for one can ONLY recommend the game to my friends because it runs great on my laptop, I'm able to play with fellow qt3 members and have had a great multiplayer experience. This is actually the FIRST game that I've played this much multiplayer (i'm a single player kinda guy).
As for it taking months to fix the multiplayer problems, sounds like it'll be more like weeks according to Frogboy. And Stardock has been quick on addressing issues. Hopefully by next weekend all you fellow players here will have your problems resolved.
Once again, thanks for all the mature responses. No, its not exactly what I would have wanted to hear, but you guys/gals make this an interesting community to be a part of.
