D2D CotN = Unfortunately, you'll need to wait for D2D to upgrade you to EE
So, if you have the digital version of CotN, stick to the service you bought it on.

I've been bugging him non-stop about getting a patch, and I honestly believe that he's been responding in good faith about the patch coming soon. D2D took a very long time to get their act together for Civ4, and I guess that's what is going on now.
So, if you're looking to pick up CotN, do it from Impulse. Stardock under Mr. Wardell just gets digital distribution. Patches are much faster because there's apparently a template given to devs to add patches to the system themselves -- I'm trying to find the link about that, might be a while.
A link discussing Wardell, and to which he responds.
If you've already picked up CotN from d2d, you've got two options:
Send in a support ticket asking for a refund
Send in a support ticket demanding the patch
Zimmitti thinks d2d will be done soon, but d2d has already been misrepresenting their progress on a patch for several months now. In any event, consumer activism is never a bad thing. At the least we'll get some hard information about their progress and why things are taking so long. At best, we'll jump start a faltering process. So get in there and whine!
original post that most of the responses are responding to wrote:http://www.tiltedmill.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17235Like the last one, this patch won't update a Direct2Drive version of the game. We haven't forgotten about that, and hope to have news for you in that department in the near future.
Still no patch available for D2D users, but the EE is for sale? News would be good. News would be very good. I'm really hoping that "not forgotten" doesn't mean "bent over", because I really like you guys and all!
Please to be not making me sad =(
Please to be telling me that patch is underway and us loyal buyers who chose not to go with Steam won't be punished! I even bought Caesar 4!
