Waiting is pointless? So you warrior rush at turn 1? Or you get 2 cities and try to win the game axe rushing? No, obviously you have to wait until some point in time. The problem with Toku is that, while his aggressive axes might be able to rush some cities, he has no ability to pay for them most of the time. So with, say, Darius (fin/org) I might go ahead and take city after city with immortals even before I have currency. With Toku, I'm going to want currency, probably code of laws, and some way to raise the happy cap like hereditary rule, before I go taking cities. Once I have those techs, sure, I'll take all the cities I can get.
