This is not the best civ, but your favorite. Whether it be from a role playing perspective or just a civ whose mechanics you really enjoyed. We've all had some time to play them all hopefully. Feel free to explain your choices. For the purposes of this poll I'm counting Eleanor as a civ, her mechanic is unique enough that warrants separation from vanilla England and France. This is a tough one to answer for me. I like them all really. I would say Phoenicia for me, just barely edging out Mali. I thought I would like Mali more, but honestly I like coastal civs more. Even if they are considered bad, I'm still not seeing it. It's also why I like England Eleanor over France Eleanor. Least favorite is Canada, though I do want to play them at least once more since recent changes. Going into the expansion I thought I would like Mali and Maori the most. I didn't really care for my Maori game that much, still have only played them once. Too easy. Though I still want to play them post patch as well.
