The first expansion Rise and Fall will come with many new and good ideas, features, extras, magnifications, changes and new Civs we can read here. But I miss some stuff (1.) that has already been talked about by the Lead designer and (2.) which features we will miss most if they will not occur. First I think about the espionage / spy system. The Lead designer spoke twice about some new ideas for the spy system. I can not find any hint about this at the moment. Second I remember having heard something about canals (like Suez canal, Panama...) weak. Did II miss the worldbuilder already? Was this not announced before? ...also...Railways, tunnels under mountains, bridges over the sea, Rename Civ/LH, Polar melting, Natural disaster, ... So is is possible that they did not revealed all new stuff yet? And what theme/topic could the second expansion have?
