Yup - bought all the cards - physical and digital and have now started a new subscription - sending in the full amount since software developers should get paid for their work. Things I appreciate: Empires (that alone I'd pay the full Gold amount for), a lighter client (battery does not get sucked down), a cleaner interface that is quite responsive, spectating, friends, actual reconnecting on bad internet experiences, allowing undo. As a professional SW dev, I felt the launch version was definately v1 level launchable - enjoyed it in beta, enjoying it now. Sure there are improvements that will come over time but it is way better than MF. The devs have been very responsive to feedback - and way more professional than some of these comments.
