Been playing Eleanor lately, and she has become my favorite leader. Does her ability really help me win? Not really.. its not even needed, if you survive the first 20-30 turns thats unlikely you're gonna lose anyway as the AI fails to be a military threat after that and doesnt really seem to follow any path to victory. But is it fun to conquer your best friends capital due to loyalty pressure? hell yeah! it is! Every other civ/leader has its perks, but in the end, it plays the same. With Eleanor you scout, you place your cities and districts accordingly and work on your great persons. Wish there were more leaders with some "individual" mechanics and perks!
