My point wasn't that they can't benefit from added flavor... But that they don't need it. The Hippus are one of the consistently strong civs... They are on the same tier that I attempt to bring other civs up to. They are extremely well designed for what they do. The Doviello had major issues with the mid-late game, as well as being boring. So I worked on them, as has Ahwaric and Sephi. The other civs worked on are the same; Both uninteresting/needing flavor, and underpowered. Minor things (like a mounted mage) are fine, and add flavor. But IMO there is no need for anything major.
