Rather than ask which civ, we should ask which theme we want. Considering none of the DE DLCs so far have added new sets, it would seem logical from an architecture distribution logic to add 2 American, 2 African civs and then probably either 2 South East Asian or Central Asian ones.
We’ve already got an Eastern European DLC, I wouldn’t buy another one
Tibetans & Jurchens for sure. Show East Asia some love and change the Chinese architecture while you’re at it.
As long as don’t get “tribe” kind of civs that don’t fit the medieval theme, I will buy any DLCs they throw at us.
If the Indian split is well received, then they should go for the Chinese split next…
Like India, the current chinese are the northern civ (archer civ). A new southern chinese civ based on a naval theme could be introduced (the biggest pirate fleets in history came from here).
And another inland/western chinese civ could be introduced (ideally Tibetans, but they can have a different name or dynasty title for harmony’s sake, like we have ‘slavs’ or ‘goths’ or ‘huns’ as diffuse titles in the game already).
…so two new chinese civs and thre new campains
I hope for Africa next, as their medieval civs are the most underrepresented now with many options, e.g. Songhai, Somalis, Kanem, Benin, …
East and South-East Asia are also missing some, I’d say mostly Tai, Jurchens and Tibetians.
And perhaps they at some point make an American DLC with Chimus, another civ (Muiscas? Tarascans?) and a Mayan campaign.
But now, I am happy that India really gets to shine!
