Surprised at the Civs being mentioned as "missing". Persia missing isn't any stranger than Spain in Civ V Vanilla and the Ottomans aren't any more impressive than Byzantine historically. However I feel Mongolia should be as automatic as Rome, and missing out on two straight inclusions is bizarre. I'll say it's refreshing they didn't put a checklist on areas and races and just added who they thought would be good for the game. I'm sure everyone will be represented when it's all said and done.
