    Civs: Mayans, Babylonians, Sumerians, Iroquois, Celts, Koreans, Carthage, Byzantines.

    I only could post 20 options so 4 civs had to be left off. My apologies to the Seljuk Empire, Numidians,Holy Roman Empire, and Bulgarians. :p

    Navajo, Carthrage, Ottomans, Byzantiums, Babylonia, Celts, Polynesia, and Zulu.

    I still have a question for Firaxis, why is Austria-Hungary there?
    They should be seperate.

    I agree. If they are gonna seperate Britain into England and Scotland they should seperate the Austro-Hungarians into Austria and Hungary.

    I basically voted for all the ones that were in previous games. Also, the choice to put Austra-Hungary there left me scratching my head

    I voted for Iroqouis (miss him from Civ3), Babylonia (miss him for Civ3), Vikings (think they will be cool), and Portugeuse (couldn't think of anyother one)

    Austria-Hungary was once an influential empire in central-eastern Europe (before WW1). When the heir to the throne of this country was assasinated, WW1 started (not the real reason, but the last drop so to say). You can find a lot of information (on Wikipedia for instance) about the country. It's an interesting option, but I didn't vote for it as I thought there were some even better options.

    Im fully aware what the AH empire was. But they we not a civilization, there were a melting pot of Germans, Hungarians, Serbs, Croats, Poles, Czechs, Slovacs....etc etc etc... An empire, but not a civilization.

    They had a great combined empire for like 51 year. Plus the countries by themselves have survived for centuries. I mean Austria-Hungary shouldn't be a civ, but Austria well deserves to be.

    Concidering I did a 30 page report on the Navajo in 8th grade, I'm kinda partial to them ;)

    Other than that, I want the celts back from civ3 because I need something green to play as on st. patty's day, and the aztecs just don't cut it!

    Glad no one complained about my ommissions yet. ;)

    To me, the Holy Roman Empire was the most ridiculous civ that they included on that list. It is a shame they did not include more worthy civs like Siam, Khmer, Israel, Aksum/Ethiopia, and several others I'm sure i could think of. Good list overall, I suppose.

    The Austria-Hungarian empire was very powerful. Had it not been for Napoleon, who was probably the greatest military leader of all time, they could quite easily have dominated central Europe and maybe more.

    As a civ? No way, you must be joking. They did nothing at all for the human race.

    Fo' surrrre! We saw that in Russia in 1812, at Leipzig in 1813, and at Waterloo in 1815. A real genius!

    Russia: He had to conquer Europe from Paris to Moscow before he needed to retreat.

    Leipzig: It took the armies of most of Europe (combined) to beat him. Even then they needed a vast amount of luck.

    Waterloo: In less than 100 days, he managed to restore France to military glory. If his logistics had been better and his reserve army had moved faster by a matter of hours, Waterloo would be remembered as the battle that secured L'Empereur's place at the head of the European Empire.

    Exactly...we saw one nation being dominant and fighting wars all over Europe, the likes of which hadn't happened since the Romans.

    Sure he had a bit of a 'Hitler moment' with his ridiculous pursuit of Moscow, but I don't reckon world domination is all that easy. Give the guy a break! :p

    You won't find many sources arguing against Napoleon being one of the greatest military leaders of all time.
