Or maybe on certain maps you refuse to play them (england on pangea? lol).
I refuse to play France, not that it's a bad civ; but because I like some variety and everyone I know has their panties in a bunch over France - lol.
I don't hate any civs in civ 5, but in 4 I hated Louis' france so much that I:
1) Never played as him
2) Always, if he were to be in any of my games, I'd declare war on him
I do not know why I hated him so much, I just did (Napoleon and DeGaulle were pretty a'aight though).
India. Gandhi was such a warmongering little @!$% in earlier versions. I can't stand him.
The more I hate a civ the more likely I am to play them. Whether it's because they're a pain in the ass or the leader just has an annoying voice, if I take that civ instead of the AI I won't have to deal with that problem.
never play as america. (or israel in previous games).
England on pangae isn't bad, Long bowman are better than ever with ranged improvement
I dislike Germany, always always always have to DoW, even when I'm stronger than them.
What's wrong with Germany?
i never play as greece. they are just a bad civ
Never liked Iroquois. I like structure and for some reason they are all about non structure in a way, well, perhaps that's just me.
germany are the best civ to play. simply because of the panzer. no other civ has decent enough enique mordern units.
I still have yet to play the Mongolians, the Americans, or the Germans. Mostly because when I first started, those were the main Civs that seemed to always show up and beat me up. Especially the Germans.
Also, other Civs that I have yet to play are the Arabians, Aztecs, Egypt, India, Persia, Rome, or Siam... and now I'm beginning to think I don't play Civ V right.. o.o
Siam because this guy as AI is so a hypocrite he has a warmogner hate of 8/10 but declares war on everybody and conqueres his hole continent you Ramkhamhaeng!!!!! (If you declare war on someone you are a warmonger)
He olso has the most unbalanced AI allways backstab you and others and act friendly and ask to declare war against my friends what i allways try to destroy him if i can and i manually choose my oponnents so i dont get this hypocrite because i allways get him if i choose random opponents
I refuse to play with this guy He olso looks gay
Washington comes close to this guy olso a hypocrite and he plays diplomacy like a little child
I'm picky about whom I play as. I typically wont play as non Europeans.
Never America because I never purchase land and their extra sight is rather boring. Also, am I right in saying that it only applies in specific circumstances because you still can't see beyond hills & forest? Never Ottoman because the maintenance reduction for the navy is pretty much useless because I only ever have a very small navy if any at all. Never England because their UA is pretty much useless IMHO. Probably a few others but I can't think of any.
haha, sounds like you've only played with one civ
See I'm the opposite. I like playing the weak guys and playing them to their strengths - in an Ottomans game right now where I've diplomatically held off a couple aggressive neighbors to Gunpowder and am now in the process of blasting the crap out of them with janissaries (which are incredible for their era).
But honestly, I'm pretty sure I've played them all by now.
I know the Iroquois will be the last civ I'll ever play. I do not care for Hiawatha or his smug, self-righteous face, and I find his meso-American architecture even more awkward than Gandhi's standard Asian cities.
Nope, I just started on V less than a month ago so I'm iterating my way through all of the leaders. I bought some of the DLC and I'm about halfway through them. Once that's done I'll enable Random Leader and Random Map as I did when playing Civ IV. While it's certain that some leaders suit my playing style better than others I enjoy the challenge of being thrown into a bind (Mongolia sans Horse, Rome without Iron, landlocked Vikings, etc.). I've been playing Civ since 1991 so for me a well-fought loss can be more fun than an easy win.
