The only time you have to update a trainer is when they release a big DLC, not every patch and that doesn't happen very often.
Maybe buying a yearly subscription expecting updated trainers was a bad move on my part. I won't make that mistake again.
Actually, the trainers do need to be updated everytime there is a patch. That's why the old trainers don't work for the old scenarios now. So the vanilla, and G&K trainers would also need to be updated each time there is a patch. While there have not been many patches lately, for a while there were patches coming all the time for this game.
CH is a great site. I've been using it for 4 years and really appreciate what they do.
Check out the post by Borenson on the bottom of the first page.
that's a pretty harsh statement considering we update trainers for 1000's of games, not just three versions of the civ 5 that are currently out. your statement about 'updating only when DLC' is factually incorrect. we have a log and I have updated vanilla civ 5 27 times, brave new world 2 times, and gods and kings 5 times. you certainly are free to find a better value for trainers than cheathappens but to claim we don't update our trainers is bunk.
have a nice day.
