Seriously. What are they going to replace it with? It's not just going to be combat is it? Because I loved played completely political civs that turtled up and took over via influence. One of my favorite civ memories was taking over a large map with gahndi, never attacking the whole time other than against the barbarians at the beginning.
Mehhh, I nearly always play for the culture win. I love flipping cities. I nearly never start wars or occupy cities with force (well, except for Barbarian cities somewhere near my civ).
