    I like Harold's screen, but how did he have the lead?! I can't agree to him winning this thing. People complained about the weird view of the Turk, and this view is just as weird. And he greets you from his ship...even if you meet him in the middle of a desert. I actually like this screen a lot, the ship is a nice touch, but over-acted a little in my opinion, and except for the ship, no other standout parts of the screen.

    Up with Shaka. A few people really slag on him, I know, and I'm trying to see their criticisms, but I just can't. I think this is a beautiful screen. The only fault I find with it is one no one has mentioned so far: it's a little busy in the foreground. But Zulu is a great spoken language, and this is well voiced. Elephant heads are a nice touch. I feel that one of the criticisms leveled against him was borderline racial, which kind of bums me out. Less advanced technology does not equal less valuable people or culture. This forum is better than that.

    I'm sorry, I just love Pachacuti's screen so much! :(

    but Shaka Zulu's screen eh.... not really digging the elephant skulls. Plus they got his head dress all wrong! :mad:

    Theodora - 8
    Harald Bluetooth - 15 + 1= 16 Why is this getting so many down votes, it's epic, and he walks off when he is defeated. HE SHOWS AN ACTUAL REACTION WHEN HE'S DEFEATED.

    Why do people say 'no offense' before saying something blatantly offensive? We don't do it with other things, "Please don't die, but I'm going to shoot you in the head."

    Don't let Shaka die people, he needs to at least be in the top 5 !

    Gajah Mada has a good screen, good animation... but it's not that special. All the other screens have a little something extra that makes them great, whereas Gajah Mada's screen is just solid all around, which isn't good enough anymore.

    Shaka - 7+1=8 Shaka's screen makes sense, he's at his kraal or at a ikhanda

    -3 to Shrek cosplayer Gajah Mada. SOMEBODY ONCE TOLD ME THE WOOORLD IS GONNA ROLL MEEE-
    Anyway, I'm goin' in on his swamp and downvoting him. Down with the Ogrelord, his presence in this thread will soon be Ogre.

    +1 to Ash, because I don't want to upvote Dandy yet again. He has a great beard, his leaderscreen looks awesome and his voice is amazing, even if he talks about curbing shoes for some reason.

    I think people give Theodora too much schtick for looking like a lazy slob. She looks like she positioned herself in a luxerious way, contemplating over your doom as you DOW her. The background sells it though, it's simply spectacular. I hope a few others leave before she does.
    Pacal is going down. There's too much about this screen that kind of irks me. His voice doesn't help matters either. It all just doesn't work as well as a top 10 screen should for me.

    THEODORA
    Theodora is in power, and she knows it. You walk enter her room while she lays spread on a couch, and what happens? Were it any other leader, they would hurry up and shower you with formalities. But Theodora doesn't bother with that. She is an empress indulging a life of luxury, she doesn't care for your silly diplomatic formalities. She knows what you are, and she knows what she is - in charge.

    She rests upon the balcony overlooking her empire's capitol, with the Hagia Sophia in the background. Two wonders in one screen. Truly, a great leaderscreen.

    GAJAH MADA
    Some people may say that it's different form other random field leader, and it is, but only slightly. The only real separation it has from the other ones is that it has a building in the corner of the background, obscured by trees and fog. Other than that, it's just him standing shirtless in a foggy, gloomy field with some trees in the background. He's Napoleon without the horse.

    Whether or not the field is supposed to grow rice really doesn't make a difference, it still looks like nothing more than an empty field. It truly is the last 'not good' leaderscreen left, and until it goes, I'll be painting it red in all of my posts.

    I think Gajah looks more like the Dwemer guy from Morrowind than an ogre.

    Ashurbanipal - 15
    Theodora - 4 Just because Theodora is supposed to look like a courtesan doesn't mean she has to be a lazy courtesan too. It's as if she can barely summon up the effort to meet with you for vital diplomatic discussions.

    Shaka - 9 Shaka's screen conveys exactly the right atmosphere. I, for one, would not be quickly dismissive of a guy who can take down elephants with a spear.

    I can't say this enough how much I love Theodora screen lovely architecture and music.

    Gajah Mada you are going down!

    I skipped Pisik's vote known as someone else now, for his vote is invalid for he waited only 3 hours instead of about a day until he could vote again.

    EDIT, Fuzz ninja'd me, corrected my gajah vote, and you added 4 to Theo...she should be 2 before I kick her out.

    Voting for Gajah because he's getting childlishly downvoted, I've stated my reasons before, its a very good leaderscreen with good ambience and animation.

    Taking Theodora out, I got to kick her out, while she was a prostitute the leaderscreen represents her as an EMPRESS, I see the seductive and decadent part, Im missing the strong regal empress part. she had to go.

    Is Theodora actually out? I haven't a clue what's been going on in the past few posts.

    Pachacuti: I've really said everything I want to say at this point. Essentially, he's the leader who I never tire of seeing.
    Gajah Mada: I'm sorry, but this is the blandest of those remaining.
