Well, it’s been over a year and the Civilization game Civ World is still in beta. And you might think why is that a big deal?
Well, because most of the time beta games get update frequently. This is not the case with Civ World the last update came nearly a year ago (yes their have been more updates to Civ 5 in a year than with Civ World) And the last update was not really big one just featuring some minor bug fixes and a new skin. https://thecivblog.wordpress.com/2011/12/07/381/.
And this can be bad because of a number of thing which are the following: The game get’s outdated and web tech like ADOBE FLASH and Html 5 advance and Civ world stays on old technology. Second and this one is probably one of the biggest and that is bugs. If you don’t update code for a while things start to get bad and the game get’s more and more bugs. Which is quite recognizable as I was trying it out today for a short while and it was slow unresponsive many buttons took a long time to load it was spazzing lagging and the list goes on.
So if Firaxes wants to fix Civ World they will have to do a lot to it to make it work properly and really get that beta away.
