    Different time zones complicates posting 'once a day', as my day and your day aren't the same. Unless we can all agree to use one time zone.

    John Curtin = 17
    Montezuma I = 17
    Pedro II = 20
    Qin Shi Huang =17
    Cleopatra = 17
    Victoria = 22
    Catherine d'Medici = 14
    Frederick Barbarossa = 17
    Gorgo = 20
    Pericles = 20
    Mahatma Gandhi = 14
    Hojo Tokimune = 20
    Mvembe a Nzinga (Alfonso I) = 20
    Alexander the Great = 8 (11 - 3)
    Harald Hadrada = 23
    Cyrus the Great = 22
    Jadwiga = 19
    Trajan = 21 (20 + 1)
    Peter the Great = 20
    Tomyris = 20
    Phillip II = 18
    Gilgamesh = 21

    Trajan is one of my favorite historical characters, and is represented very well in the game. Alexander... obviously couldn't have conquered anything, he would have been too busy lying on the beach. I liked his representation in Civ V much better.

    Just realized I made a mistake earlier - Alexander was already down to 11 (I said 14) before a user incorrectly posted twice in 24 hours, so with Eagle Pursuit's downvote and now Calyxx's, Alexander should now be down to only 5 points.

    I have a question to creator of this thread - when some new civ will be introduced, will be its leader added to this thread?

    I can't speak for the creator of this thread, but I'm fairly sure that this game will be finished by the time that another Civ is added. I'm not sure why that didn't occur to you!

    Tomyris = 20
    Phillip II = 18
    Gilgamesh = 21

    Ok, I wouldn't have voted for Alex , but I feel the need to save him. Once you have accepted the cartoonish fun style of leaders, Alex was the missing character , the stupid and pretty , with a huge narcisse complex. Seems like the right one for this.
    Strangely enough , I hate the ghetto ***** style of Cleopatra with zero class. Maybe it's not the case when she's not angry but I've never seen her anything else than angry at me. And yes, I'm not consistent. I save Alex for the same reason I shoot at Cleo. Human paradox I guess.

    Hojo Tokimune is supposed to be 22 now, you forgot to add a point.

    First I will say I think most of the characters are very well done.

    I think Philip has some of the best animation and character design I've seen in a video game. If he were rendered at higher quality, he could almost pass as a Pixar film character. Excellent job on the small details of the animation, particularly the little hop he does when he first meets you.

    John Curtin, in contrast, seems stiff and doesn't draw me in.

    I agree. We will let the current crop finish. New leaders will be added in future elimination threads.

    Qin Shi Huang = 17 + 1 = 18 Yes he is cartoony, but he's not THAT off from the rest of the roster. And most importantly, they finally got his voice and speech right - huge improvement over Wu Zetian, and I think it's worth the credit.

    A silly Ken doll I could tolerate. An annoying Ken doll with punchable face - never. I know some of you will say: "But he's fun to hate on!" And I agree - indeed he is. And, as a result, it's fun to eliminate him first.

    I strongly prefer Civ 5's depiction of Alexander. Not sad to see botox boy go.

    Teddy Roosevelt = 22
    Saladin = 20
    John Curtin = 14

    Montezuma I = 11 (14-3)
    Montezuma just looks too weird. Don't get me started on his goatee. I would prefer my world leaders not look like crazy caricature carnival jesters. Borderline offensive.

    Pedro II = 20
    Qin Shi Huang = 18
    Cleopatra = 15
    Victoria = 22
    Catherine d'Medici = 14
    Frederick Barbarossa = 17
    Gorgo = 20

    Pericles = 21 (20+1)
    I'm loving the return of Squidhead. Epic beard, wizened eyes, sick flavor text, and an agenda that doesn't squander his historical character *cough cough* *Cyrus* *cough*.
