    Man, hard choices, all of these are great. It's just.. Shaka may not have the best design, but I love seeing him because his body language is fantastic - the animations are top notch. Similarly, I think Ashurbanipal's is pretty great looking, but he's so stiff and formal, and looks like an angry librarian (which might be correct, but hey).

    I can't vote for 5 more hours, but I just noticed that the rationale seems to be getting more thoughtful and precise, and wanted to thank everyone for putting the effort in. It makes for an even better thread, and I've learned a bunch of things from reading, aesthetically and historically!

    Harald Bluetooth - 18- Win, you energetic Viking!
    Pachacuti - 15- Extremely similar to Pacal, just with an orangy touch. He is much more boring though.

    Ishbuga voted twice today. Fuzzatron corrected the vote afterwards, but his correction was ignored. Ehecazin accidentally removed 5 votes, not 3 from Theodora because of the confusion.

    99% sure its fixed :)

    EDIT: Viregel, the elimination order in the OP needs an edit as well.

    -3 Dandolo: I want to see something magnificent from Dandolo. I thought St Mark's Basilica would have been a much better back ground for him. I just don't find much special about some random canal.

    +1 Theodora: The leader screen is based of two pieces of famous artwork of Theodora. The developers did a great job combining the two, while adding a great view from the palace.

    Theodora, remaining seated, makes me feels like she is more apathetic about her guests. Maybe she's busy in though....planning their demise.

    -3 Theodora: I would have liked to see Theodora be more lively. I dislike how all she does is lay around. I wish she would do more like Harald or Pachacuti

    +1 Enrico Dandolo: I really like this screen. It has all the right elements that make a screen great; good background, good sounds, and good leader.

    These are all good screens, but I gots to vote...

    Harald takes the wooden spoon today: he looks down on you at an odd angle; it's just him and his ship; I find him to be over-animated. The downside to the ship is that the angle it gives us doesn't allow me to see the fjords or any background whatsoever. That's an important part of a top screen for me. If there was a background, this would be my top 3. Instead, it doesn't make my top 5. Which is a shame, because I love the uniqueness of the ship.

    Shaka looks good, sounds good, moves interestingly, good foreground, good back ground, nice palette. I especially like the geographic feature in the background. Is it a specific feature in Kwa'Zulu? Top 3 screen for me.

    Ashurbanipal - 8 I like outdoors elements, which this doesn't have. Still an impressive leaderscreen, but someone has to go

    Askia - 18
    Enrico Dandolo - 10 So beautiful to look at. Please finish top 5 at the very least!

    Ashurbanipal - 5 I like Ashurbanipal's screen, but he's the most static of the remaining leaders. His screen is much better than the other Mesopotamian leaders', but that doesn't quite put him in the top five in my opinion.
    Harald Bluetooth - 13
    Pachacuti - 15
    Pacal - 15
    Askia - 18
    Enrico Dandolo - 10
    Shaka - 9 Still supporting Shaka. Not sure if people downvoting him are looking at static portraits rather than animated screens, but Shaka has the most life to him of any of the remaining screens except maybe Harald, and Harald is a little too hail-fellow-well-met to be intimidating.

    Pachacuti - 12 - I don't reallly like Pachacuti or his screen, there's nothing particularly interesting in it.
    Pacal - 15
    Askia - 19 - Incredible music, beautiful background and great voice actiong, what's not to like? The flame closest to Askia himself is pretty captivating.

    Venice at night looks nice and Dandolo is appropriately blind. The voice acting is also good. It's a good screen, but not amazing, and, as it was pointed out, it doesn't make a lot of sense that Dandolo is meeting you on a random canal.

    Shaka. The perfect warmonger screen/voice/attitude.

    +1 to Dandy. I like this leaderscreen. It's just cool, beautiful, and I really enjoy his voice.

    -3 to Shaka, because I can't say I like his leaderscreen. It doesn't look... I dunno, civilised? No real architecture to speak of, just some flimsy huts and skulls. He doesn't really look intimidating either, just like a guy who happened to slay some elephants in his weird pants. Okay, scratch that - that does sound awesome, and the leaderscreen is not too bad, but I can't comprehend why he's in while Monty's already dead.


    I like how Askia used to be endangered several pages ago, but now is swimming in points, having the most of them. Well, his screen does look absolutely awesome. Dat landscape. Dat burning city. Dat Askia and his cool voice.

    SHAKA
    Shaka's leaderscreen presents him as a proud and confident leader. It presents him as someone who is sure of himself. It also presents him as willing to fight, holding both a spear and shield, as well as showing off his knowledge of them (Those spear waves...). Some people say that he doesn't look 'scary'. What, do you want him to look more like Monty? Do you want him to be dancing around a pile of corpses, chanting, and sticking his spear into the pile, all while wearing a boogyman mask? I, for one, don't.

    Also, his shadow is just great. Especially when he declares war, it's very pleasing to see that shadow go to work.

    AYIVIIIIIIIIIFE!
    ... Maria's DoW laugh is still the best. :nono:

    PACHACUTI
    That dress of his... I don't know whether to stare at it, or stick some wood on it and say, "Check-mate". In a screen as good as this one, that eye-sore severely ruins the moment. It may be historically accurate, it may not be - I don't know. All I know is that it doesn't look good in the leaderscreen.
