From what I've read it's buggy and roughly done, and crashes for some people.  Which is a shame because a regicide game mode might be pretty fun. In the workshop there are bug fixes for the DLC.

Fingers crossed it'll be worthwhile playing at some point. Don't hold your breath though

It costs a dollar for every year they didn't make it.

lol so true.

It's not getting very good reviews on Steam at all.... They reckon its just a half assed mod, and that most of the animations and models have just been reused from the base game....

Looks like I might wait for a sale unless Taco can weigh in.

It's all rebalancing though? It doesn't sound like it hits the most obvious issue? (only Atlanteans (and maybe Chinese??) get multiple god powers)
