    I've read a few threads where people think various combinations of Philosophical are overpowered - Phi/Ind being one of them. Man I remember running a Philosophical leader under Pacifism - you're cranking out GPs like regular units!

    too bad they didn't try and balance the traits a bit more. financial is also nearly absent in warlords.

    I don't know about that. There are 7 financial civs vs. 5 imperialistic ones. Philosophical did get a huge cut, though, since there are only 4 of them.

    I dont see the diffrence, If I can find a civ I play well with or enjoy, all Civs are equally inferior to me :)

    Well, someone else already covered it actually.

    Just mod it in. It'll take you quite literally less than a minute or two. I'm not saying modding is the solution to everything (though, it can be actually). But if some people (you, for example) are tied to XX leader that had XX traits and only play as them, then change it back. It takes hardly any effort.

    Keep an eye on the new civ4 downloads. If you wait a few months, I'm sure people will update the new civs/leaders they previously built for Warlords. You'll probably find at least one with the trait combo you most missed; perhaps with some new combos featuring the new traits.
