    So are you saying that you think if there was a large poll on who is the best overall civ that more than 50% would vote for China? I highly doubt that, I don't think they'd even get the most overall votes. I expect they would finish 4th or 5th in such a poll.

    Because there is no way he was talking about best overall in /this/ poll...right lol.

    That being said, polls say absolutely nothing as to what is actually 'fact'. Heck, I would guess that most people taking majority of the polls on here don't even fully understand what's being asked(which can be seen in other poll threads)

    No India option? In that case, Japan. What's the point of posting a poll in the first place if you thought 50% of people would vote China?

    Yes polls are just polls. Popular opinion has a fairly tarnished reputation :) I wouldn't give a rat's about the result of a 'best civ' poll from a Civ players perspective, to be sure, but I would lay long odds that no civ even approached 50% of the vote which was in essence what the OPer was claiming in the post I quoted.

    Edit : Ah, I see. He was probably just meaning best overall between these three. My bad.

    I would give Mongolia an edge as their power does not lie in bugs but in Keshliks & Khans. :p
    What is the point for being so rude. He just thought like that. It depends on how you look at conquest & at what difficulty you play.

    I would still give it to Japan given that Japan's power can be used with or without UUs.

    If you think that's me being rude, you have very thin skin.

    Mongols have much better UUs but there UA is meh. Japan UA is great but their UUs are overall average (Samurai=Good Zero=Useless). Mongols can be much better in smaller maps & slower speed. Japan would be better in Big maps & quick speed.
    Well the OP is a new member of civfanatics so being friendly & helpful would be better than saying 'whats the point of creating that poll' etc.

    Mongolia's cavalry archers are horribly broken. End of story.

    That is what he was trying to say. Broken means that they are just too strong. For example when ciV was released, horsemen were broken. They had 12 strength & no penalty against cities so 4 of them could wipe off the entire continent. :)

    China is good because it's about balanced between science, gold and war.

    And 100 posts in 4 days. :D
    Back to the topic. I think Poll has decided that Mongols are best for pure warmongering.
