Between R&F and GS there was the "will we or won't we have civ DLC between expansions" question. The assumption was we probably wouldn't because Firaxis would be stuck between a rock and a hard place - either releasing DLC Civs that required R&F (and becoming the first company to release DLC that required DLC), or releasing DLC Civs that didn't require R&F (and alienating folks who would want Civs to work with the latest mechanics). However, the Maori are now a great example of a creative civ design that actually doesn't use any of the expansion mechanics (GS or R&F). So my question is: if the Maori (or an equivalent style of civ) came out in say July, would yo have bought it? Or would you have been disappointed it didn't use any of the R&F mechanics?
