I am quite disappointed in the lack of new philosophical combinations in the expansion. In the vanilla version the combinations seemed lacking enough, but now with the addition of three new traits without a single philosophical pairing, its just downright depressing. Why neglect a trait so bad? Let's look at the combinations still available. Phi/Ind Phi/Cre Phi/Cha Phi/Imp Phi/Pro Are any of these really that unbalanced? Phi/Ind, maybe, okay - I could see that being pretty tough to come up against, but why remove Phi/Cre all together? It was a good trait. I played as Frederick alot, and it's not like I had a huge advantage or anything. As for the new combinations, what do you guys think? Why arn't there any new philosophical leaders? It can't be the lack of histoical leaders posessing any of these traits, and I really don't think it comes down to balance issues. More room for another expansion maybe? I sure hope so.
