NFP came with all the power creep - not just the leaders, but the secret societies and heroes too. I mean, give me a complete blank civ but let me use secret societies and heroes, and that civ will absolutely crush any other civ in the game. The latest iteration really haven't been that special. I mean, some nice abilities, but I don't think any of the ones we've seen so far are S-tier civs, if you ignore the free printing of units for the US or using Caesar in a specific case to farm barb camps on marathon speed.
Those are pretty potent in the right circumstances though!
Also I think the Kongo are pretty darn strong with their new leader.
Re: power creep; I just specifically mean against previous era Civs. For example, Wilhelmina’s +2 culture per trade route versus japans 2 science, 2 culture and 4 gold for even a moderately developed city.
I absolutely agree about the NFP bolt ons. They are generally nuts and especially so considering the AI is hopeless with them
