@ mystyfly: Seconded, although I'm now sure it would change all that much. My favourite trait (ORG) loses out to the closest alternative (FIN) on low levels, my second favourite one (IND) drops off if you play beyond your comfort zone. SPI and PRO I feel become better at high levels of play, because they keep you safer (obvious for PRO, and SPI is a great diplomacy tool) and benefit from active leveraging (overflow abuse for PRO, heavy civic swapping for SPI to emulate whatever trait you need at the time). @ StJude1: Depends on what you mean by overpowered. Some other combinations are more impressive in the right circumstances. However, IND/PHI would... - be perfect for OCC games, to the extent it's an advantage rather than additional challenge - dominate low-level play where snagging all wonders is easy. Something that's no problem at the higher levels but a massive imbalance in the eyes of casual players would still hurt the game.
