    You can only add one point. Hardrada should only be at nine.

    Teddy Roosevelt = 26 (25+1)
    Saladin = 13 (16-3)
    Hojo Tokimune = 25
    Harald Hardrada = 9
    Cyrus the Great = 32

    I could vote several different ways here, and haven't made up my mind quite on who I want to win out of those remaining; but Teddy gets this vote for the now. Saladin on the other hand has to be 4th or 5th...imho lol

    Teddy Roosevelt = 26
    Saladin = 10 (13-3) Pretty good leader, but not Top 3 material
    Hojo Tokimune = 25
    Harald Hardrada = 10 (9+1) He's a fun guy! Would be great if he could survive one more spot
    Cyrus the Great = 32

    Bully for Teddy, Cyrus? Off with his head.

    Overall a pretty solid top 5 left, with a pretty clear top 3 developing.

    Teddy Roosevelt = 28 = 27+1 My clear #1 choice, for multiple reasons. It's great to see him finally get a chance as the US leader.
    Saladin = 10
    Hojo Tokimune = 25
    Harald Hardrada = 10
    Cyrus the Great = 26 = 29-3 Needs to be knocked down a peg, he was getting too far ahead.

    What is Cyrus' armour here based on? Otherwise I think he looks great, but I'd be able to get behind him more if it weren't for the fact I can find no pictures of Achaemenid armour resembling the armour he wears here.

    Teddy Roosevelt = 26 (25 + 1) Because he seems to be the most authentically depicted here, even if the main reason he is popular here is that he is American :p
    Saladin = 7 (Does not look especially like Saladin, not sure how he's made it this far)
    Hojo Tokimune = 25 (Based on his depiction in a TV show, so not neccesserily authentic, but definitely one of the better looking leaders in the game in my opinion as he isn't a ridiculous caricature)
    Harald Hardrada = 9 (11 - 3) I have been upvoting him up to this point, but then someone pointed out that he keeps rambling about Odin and Viking mythology when in fact he was a Christian who worked hard to make Norway more Christian
    Cyrus the Great = 27

    Now it's battle of personal preferences...

    Teddy Roosevelt = 26
    Saladin = 7
    Hojo Tokimune = 25-3=22 - Somewhat boring and weakest of remaining. But he's got a really good sword.
    Harald Hardrada = 8
    Cyrus the Great = 27+1=28 - One point for winner!

    Fixing the two math errors/typo 8 instead of 9 and 22 instead of 2.

    Teddy Roosevelt = 26
    Saladin = 7
    Hojo Tokimune = 22
    Harald Hardrada = 8
    Cyrus the Great = 28

    Teddy Roosevelt = 26
    Saladin = 7 + 1 = 8 (Though Firaxis unwisely made him into a scholar rather than a warrior this time around, I cannot deny that the voice actor and the sultry silk, as well as the overall good animation (and relative facial realism) mean I upvote him until Harald sails his ship to Valhalla, where a similarly cartoony Bluetooth awaits him (though at least Bluetooth's armaments and clothing looked distinctive)).
    Hojo Tokimune = 22
    Harald Hardrada = 8 - 3 = 5 (Worse than Saladin, both in terms of historicity and in terms of having a realistic figure. Also, why is this Harald Haradrada and not Ragnar Lodbrok? All the references to Odin and Valhalla do *NOT* make sense for Haradrada, who was a Christian. There aren't even passing references to his time in the Varangian Guard or his battles in England. This is not Harald. This is a stereotypical Viking leader whose name textually happens to read "Harald Hardrada". Also, he looks too cartoony. Cartooniest leader of the ones remaining, and his agenda is irritating as all get out since few maps have much water anyway.)
    Cyrus the Great = 28

    Teddy Roosevelt = 26 - 3 = 23 Really get tired of Bully for you.
    Saladin = 8
    Harald Hardrada = 5
    Hojo Tokimune = 22
    Cyrus the Great = 28 + 1 = 29 Because of the leaders left, I think he is the best.

    Comment: I really believe these elimination threads ought to be only one vote because one person can literally cause the elimination of a choice by voting every day against that choice. It can be over come by multiple others, but that requires a concerted effort that is not likely to happen.

    Teddy Roosevelt = 23
    Saladin = (8-3)=5 I have issues with both Saladin's and Cyrus' portrayals in the game, but I'm troubled more by Saladin's.
    Harald Hardrada = 5
    Hojo Tokimune = (22+1)=23 He's a decent leader depiction, despite not resembling the portrait of Hojo on the wiki.
    Cyrus the Great = 29

    Harald Hardrada = 5
    Hojo Tokimune = 23
    Cyrus the Great = 29

    Teddy Roosevelt = 17 (20-3) It was a toss up between Teddy and Hal, but I'd like to see Cyrus at #1 and Hojo or Saladin as #2
    Saladin = 7 (6+1) As someone else remarked, the facial expressions are well done, plus he reminds me of an old friend (who happens to be of Indian descent)
    Harald Hardrada = 5
    Hojo Tokimune = 23
    Cyrus the Great = 29
