Start menu says I am using an illegal copy of this game, even though I bought from the app store.

I have had Civ 5, for a very long time, it is one of the most fun games that I have come across on the App Store. However, I went to start the application today and at the first start menu a screen appears saying, “You are using an illegal copy of this application.” I have not downloaded this game from a off-App Store site or anything that I am knowledgeable to be deemed illegal. I purchased this game, around a year ago and I am not going to just sit while it says I am illegaly using this game, when I spent money out of my pocket on this game. I’m posting this comment to understand if this is a hacker attempting to gain information or if this application is trying to take my money and say I’m illegally using it. Has anyone else ran into this problem? What exactly should I do? I’ve removed the game from my harddrive, as I’m not going to get into trouble for having an illegal copy of the application, however legally purchased this game and I am not about to allow my money to be taken and I get in trouble for something that I have not done. So if anyone has any info on what I should please reply, as I love Civ 5 it is truly an amazing game and deserves 5 stars in my opinion. Please help.

Full of game crippling bugs !!!!!

most every single bug in this game relates to workers. after a certain point in the game. they just stop making upgrades completely and sit around the map at random points. STUCK until you return them to manual mode. they also travel the most danerous locations around the map over and over. constantly getting caught by barbarians. once returned to manual mode they need orders to do the same jobs over and over each turn until the one job is complete. they also seem to build an excessive ammount of trading posts leaving me people hungry in allot of cases or city growth stagnated. managing workers in a large empire quickly becomes overwelming and normally call it quits before finishing a game in frustration. without these bugs it would be a super fun and great day killer when its raining outside. hard to put down forget to eat kind of game. until the workers stop. well. working. one final complaint is the game has an auto attention that can really be very very annoying. if you are doing something with a unit it will just start switching you around the map on its own to what it thinks you should be doing. instead of allowing the tasks bubble to be clicked and get to each one in your own time. I HATE THIS AND WISH I COULD TURN IN OFF !!


For anyone who is interested in strategy games such as risk or settlers of catan will find this game fun. I came from an outside view and being interested in the game because of my past experiences with risk and catan after seeing youtubers play the game. I can say these are a good test of if you would be interested in the game. Not only that you will be able to spend hours of time on one game and go to another game with completely different setups and spend hours of more time. Then buying a DLC or expansion just gives you more time that you can ply the the game. I have only known about the game for a couple months at this point, but I have spent at least 24 hours playing the game if not more.
