    Would you like to see firaxis publish any DLC after gathering storm? Or do you think the game has reached it's final form and the devs should focus on Civilization VII? Of you do want to see more DLC, what civs would you like to see added?

    I'd love to see a new world type Dlc pack with the Maya's and an alternate leader for Spain.

    I would definitely like to see Austria, Byzantine Empire, and Venice back in. They are glaring omissions.

    I want either a full fledged expansion, or Civ 7. If we're getting a smallish DLC, I'd prefer if it added 2nd leaders for a ton of civs, rather than 1 or 2 brand new civs.

    More content, yes please. Particularly any Ancient or classical civ, and oh I'm fine with Medieval. Well, to be honest anything is good.

    I think a more fleshed out trade route mechanic would be cool.

    Civ VI is nice, but a bit exhausted in terms of civs. We are already at the point where it’s very hard to remember every civ’s abilities (except Greece, which has the simplest civ design in the game).

    I would like to see Civ VII with the Cherokee/Haudenosaunee, Mayans, Ethiopia, and Byzantium in the base game.

    And better leader screens that don’t have cutscenes, but real interaction. And less smudged painting in the background. And a Civilopedia that can be accessed from the main menu. And dynamic war music like in Civ V (though having maybe three different peace era variations would be nice too).

    If they aren't doing a 3rd expansion, then I would like to see Byzantium, Portugal, the Maya, and perhaps Ethiopia offered as DLC.

    I'd like more DLC, and be happy with whatever civs they choose to add, as long as they also come with scenarios to play.

    I mentioned three big missing civs earlier, but I shouldn’t have forgotten Portugal. They are the fourth that should be added for sure.

    To be honest, i would prefer civ vii. They had some nice ideas in civ vi, but ultimately, many of them didn't work out.

    Really, I’d really like some more content regardless of how it’s delivered. But that said, I’d prefer a few dlc over 12 - 24 months focused on specific themes / mechanics instead of one big bang expansion. That would mean new mechanics would be introduced more slowly, but that would let them be done with better balancing given the slower (even more) incremental pace.

    And yeah, would love Portugal etc and alt leaders. Particularly Lizzie and Napoleon and another for China and Spain.

    I don't particularly care about 'new' Civilizations, but there are a lot of good ideas in Civ VI now that were bungled in execution, so I'd like to see a "Corrections DLC" that fixes the most glaring of them:
    1. Get the Tech Advance/Production in balance so that gamers can actually afford to build all them new units and stuff in the late game.
    2. We got what appears to be a half-done World Congress/Diplomatic Victory game: finish it. Make it possible to get a Diplomatic Victory without dragging the game out tediously, make the World Congress something other than a random crap-shoot, and tweak the AI's response to diplomatic and trade initiatives, (the 'trade bug', among others, needs immediate fixing)
    3. Fix the Units. The game started with roughly, an Upgrade every other Era, then they started adding more units and now the Units are a collection of incoherent rapid and slow upgrades, gaps, ephemeral units that go obsolete faster than political promises, and Resource requirements for building and maintaining units that make no sense at all.

    There's a bunch of other stuff related to individual units, Civs, Trade, and City States that need fixing, but those three are the big ones for me.

    If we need new Civs, the Mod Community already has versions of the Mayans, Portugal. Rumania, Armenia, Tibet, and alternate leaders several states. Dunno about anybody else, but they will keep me playing for a while without any new Firaxian Civiliations.

    Personally, I’d be happy to pay for another full expansion - focused on diplomacy.

    I feel that would add a tremendous amount to the replay-ability of the game.

    Include: Marriage Alliances - unites two civs prior to regular alliances being available, providing bonuses to trade and culture as well as warfare. But make them fragile, where things can collapse into a civil war if you reject one of your ally’s requests.

    Improving WC - by requiring a physical wonder be built by one player after they have met all the other players. Give that player one Diplo VP and first leadership of congress and +2 DF points per turn.
    Allow a trade phase during voting, so you can ‘buy’ votes from you allies or neutral players - requiring the formation of coalitions, and requiring a player to have SOME form of diplomatic standing with the world, in order to progress.
    As era progress, allow construction of the United Nations, where people join based on an ideology. This could potentially trigger World Wars. Changing Ideologies would be possible, but could trigger a civil war. Larger more powerful civs would compete diplomatically over the allegiance of developing civs towards their ideologies.

    Clandestine Operations - The ability to secretly fund a war against another Civ, via funneling a third party both troops, funds and Increasing espionage activity.


    Just a few ideas I had rattling around in my mind...

    DLC. I still need to see the Byzantines, Swahili, and Assyria and hopefully another OCC like Venice or the Vatican.
