I would like to see a few features from 4 brought back into 5, but I cant support many of those statements. 1. The stacks were an abomination that made war entirely uninteresting. 2. I disagree on principle, and it wouldnt work with 1upt, which I happen to like. 3. I disagree here as well. I thought that was a fairly shallow way to manage your empire. The current way requires a lot more long range planning and decision making to manage your economy, science, etc. 4. I more or less agree here. It makes little sense to me that conquering a city on another continent can make my capital unhappy. 5. This isnt a new feature. 6. I would like some form of religion reintroduced. It was done horribly in 4, but that doesnt mean it cant be done well. In Civ 4 it was auto-alliance or auto-hate, and it eventually became a pointless tech rush to found religions and get the GP buildings. 7. I honestly dont care about graphics. 8. I vastly prefer hexes. Movement is a lot more fair/even now.
