To use gumbo file or not?

Had recently gone to Heaven on Seven for some gumbo and thought I should make an enormous pot for myself and family. Decided on chicken and sausage and got cooking. Tasting it as it cooked and I was really happy with the result. Then finished with some gumbo file and now am thinking I like it better before the file. What about you? Do you think the file adds or is not needed?
