Many of us have our ideal 8 civ list for an expansion pack, and still others are presuming a fourth expack or DLC to follow. What I can say is that 8 civs doesn't seem to be enough; no matter how you slice 8 remaining civs, great ideas are left on the cutting room floor. I haven't, however, seen many propose a third alternative. And that would be a blowout extravaganza third expack. All the remaining civs the devs wanted to develop, more than 8 civs, all at once. Given how much larger GS was than R&F, product creep is not an impossible notion. It really depends on what business model Firaxis thinks suits their remaining design space. So, your hypothetical situation is that Firaxis will blow its wad on a big, expensive, 12 civ expack, no DLC afterward. The only limitation in this hypothetical is that Firaxis wants to fill out the map as best as possible; it will not add more than one civ per "gap" in the map. But there are more than 12 gaps, so you have to help them decide which are more important than others. DISCLAIMERS: 1. If I didn't list a civ you want but it coincides with that general area, just pick that region and note it. You know what I'm talking about. 2. Portugal and Morocco are not "the same TSL region" in this poll, even though both are very Spain-ish. That is only because of how presumptive Portugal is as an eventuality. 3. For one reason or another, several civs simply don't work well for the purposes of a TSL-oriented poll. So I will give you freebies you can add at your discretion, in addition to your twelve (just presume Firaxis was feeling extra productive I guess): * Byzantium (Blobby Rome) * Huns (Blobby Scythia) * Kievan Rus' (Blobby Russia) * Akkadia/Assyria/Babylon (Blobby Sumeria) * Chola (Blobby India) * Manchu (Blobby China) * Mexico (TSL Aztec) * Tupi (TSL Brazil) * Sioux (America/Cree, generally) (I should have included Iroquois here as well, but it's too late to change the poll, so Iroquois fans lucked out) * Gauls/Goths/Whatever (Europe, generally) 4. If you think a region I listed is in fact two regions, try to vote for one fewer options if you can and note that I'm just the wrongest person in the world.
