I've spent far too much time playing games, but at least it's fun.

comment What is this icon above the Emancipation Gate (in Civilization Beyond Earth)
I could be wrong, but perhaps it means that its active and thus available to send military units into for a game victory?

comment Earliest unit needed to capture city?
In the right situations you can conquer a city with any melee unit. Its usually a good idea to soften a city up first with air, sea, and artillery firepower. I typically only attack with melee units once I know the assault is nearly unstoppable. A long retreat will typically mean losses. especially for the units that got in the closest, like melee units.

comment Are larger cities typically easier targets for Covert Ops?
@Chantola - Thanks and thanks for the answers. I'm trying to log my questions as I attempt to perfect my strategy.

comment Is Alien aggression global or is it on a per-nest basis?
Hey I think you were too aggressive and you throwing the baby out with the bath-water, so to speak. I'm sorry that you feel the way you do, but obviously you've decided to stick to your guns.

comment Is Alien aggression global or is it on a per-nest basis?
@frank - I think your wrong, the questions aren't wikipedia pages that will be updated to answer every sub-question. If people can not ask questions inspired by other questions, then you are needlessly standing in the way of learning and are truly committing a disservice to those who wish to learn. There really isn't any benefit to erring this strongly on the side of succinctness.

@Frank - I think you misjudged the question, and you did the people who are interested in the game a disservice.

comment Is Alien aggression global or is it on a per-nest basis?
@Frank - That question does not answer a fundamental question about how alien aggression works, ie is it global or per nest. I think this question is easily valid in its own right. Besides what do you have against more detailed versus more general questions?

comment When trading, is the response “I don't see how we can make this work” a final answer?
Ultimately you have to try every combination of concessions on your side to know for certain that you can't get a particular concession from an AI player. So no, it's not truly a final answer.

comment Is it better to focus a Great Prophet on opposing civilizations or your own at the beginning of the game?
This is a incredibly situational question, not that it can't be answered. But one could write a tome about Civ 5 religious strategies that involve Great prophets. There are a wide range of game factors that can have an impact.

comment How do Bombers work in BF4
Basically you have to sit around a trailer and fight off the other people in line.

comment Which guided Engineer anti-tank or ant-vehicle launcher does the most damage?
Well to fair again, those stats don't include the impact damage. So in a sense, you could say it does not answer the bonus question. I believe that's the most important damage stat, and because its missing, the table is not as helpful for answering this question as it appears.

comment Which guided Engineer anti-tank or ant-vehicle launcher does the most damage?
@DavidYell - sorry but you are flat out incorrect. The link you provided, like the answer, says "Launcher stats (except impact damage) values ". I want the max impact value and weapon name, which are not provided.

comment Which guided Engineer anti-tank or ant-vehicle launcher does the most damage?
The selected answer for yours says "For the damage stats versus vehicles per launchers, I could not find the stats. " which would indicate that my question was not answered by yours.

comment Which guided Engineer anti-tank or ant-vehicle launcher does the most damage?
@IvanSolntsev - Hey Ivan, I think its not a duplicate, since I'm asking about damage and a specific weapon. Your question isn't directed at damage details, and is for tanks in general. I think the questions overlap after reading the details, but mine is a more specific case than yours. And would get a more direct answer.

Isn't this a dupe of the other one about this.

comment Why does my battlelog show two different kill totals for the same Vehicle?
Technically the Russian and Chinese leadership had a well publicized split decades ago, though they still both use weapons descendent from Soviets.

comment What are the exact effects and formulas for high and low morale?
+1, I'm not sure if your right or not, because I'm haven't been playing it lately. But if no one else responds or disagrees with your answer, I'll try and remember to select your answer.

comment Will losing a strategic resource disband units?
@MarkB - Good point, I guess I assumed that there were no promotions for the sake of the question, but I didn't really think about it.
