I just got it and checked out aztecs, which i thought i was going to love, and souix, and im not all that blown away. I mean the european civs got some cool things to renew some interest there, but i dont really have much desire to go and play as the natives. No im not going to deny that the souix seem REAL tough, but not all that interesting. Anyone else feel this way?

I love the Xpack although I have no real interest in playing with the Natives civs (did like the Iroqouis though).

The Saloon makes for an all new set of strategies as well as all the new cards.

You really do not know what to expect now when you go into a game.

Still waiting on the xpack to arrive, however I'm sure I'll be excited to play with the new civs and see how they operate and such. One thing I'm not thrilled about is the saloon. I've never been one to FF and merc spam, and I could compete against that with micro and skill. Now, it seems I'll have to merc spam as my enemy will too :-\

I just got the x pack. And I'm having a blast playing has the natives. The new things that European got are nice, but I'm having a better time with the natives.

1 gb ram
Nvidia Geforce 7600 GS 512mb

I like the Aztec, and the other natives will be cool once I get bored of them.

I've only played 1 game vs the comp in TWC. I played as the Sioux. They're pretty intriguing. Building vills and an army without building houses is quite nice.

the difference between how you play when you are using natives is very startling, especially with sioux.

whole new strategies and build orders are needed. it is basically a relearning of a new RTS game. Not at all like AOC in which the new civs weren't so different that you didn't have basic strats to try.

The biggest difference and thing to watch is the Fire Pit.

When playing as a european civ, i'd make it as much a priority to take out that fire pit early, as to take out the TC.
