You can hack the ports in, which is the essential fix for the base game. I would honestly buy just the base game if you're unsure in any way. A Clash of Kings is definitely the expansion you want if you know you'll get to play with 5-6 players. If you're looking at 4-5 you'll want A Storm of Swords.
I haven't found the base game to need fixing. I'm not meaning this as trolling, but this is an honest question. Can you explain what that fix is and why it's needed? Maybe I'm just overlooking something.
