    I remember in the stream chat someone said I want all the things, what I should have added was that I want all the things from Civ 4. Though I think I would just like to see some of the older Wonders names, even if their effects were totally different.

    I've felt like Civ has lost some depth and would like to see it get more detailed. Like the whole arranging of artifacts to get Tourism "mini game" as Mad called it. I want more stuff like that and you can either just let it fill up and leave it to a "governor" or get as into it as you want by micro, which I never did mind. It's just much harder to do when you're doing MP.

    :D

    For myself, nostalgia brings me back to the High Council from Civilization II. In terms of the practical, I'll throw my support behind marking a Throne Room return from the same game but -- indeed -- retweak towards gameplay impact.
