    Harald Bluetooth - 4
    Pacal - 5
    Askia - 9
    Shaka - 6

    -3 Pachacuti: I think this screen is really good. However, compared to the remaining screens, it is not as good.

    + 1 Shaka: In my opinion, this is one of the best screens remaining. It shows the landscape of Africa, and depicts Shaka himself perfectly as a warmonger.

    I honestly look at this result as the top 5 all being tied because the elimination now will come down to which leaders' haters are allowed to/show up to vote first. Just the way real-time forum voting goes.

    Sukritact, you HAD to see that coming... ;)

    Consider it a 5-way tie. Bad luck that the Pachacuti haterz got on to vote before others.

    Harald Bluetooth - 1 Sorry man, you cannot do anything against the fancy hat, the burning Timbuktu and the beautiful african landscape.
    Pacal - 5
    Askia - 10 It always made me laugh that a leader with which you discuss has a burning city behind him. Way of showing : "Don't try to fool me."
    Shaka - 6

    Casting my vote early today, as I'm not sure if I'll get back to this thread before it ends otherwise.

    Harald Bluetooth - 1
    Pacal - 5
    Askia - 7 A good leaderscreen, but an ever-burning city is a bit much. Kind of a misleading first impression... and I do wonder why he spends all his time watching cities burn.
    Shaka - 7 Said it before, I'll say it again: all the elements of this leaderscreen mesh beautifully.

    Harald Bluetooth - 1 + 1= 2: I personally think that the way Shaka and Pachacuti came back isn't fair, but now Harald gets sacrificed for them!
    Pacal - 5
    Askia - 7
    Shaka - 7 - 3= 4: All four deserve it, but you were already out once Shaka, I'm sorry.

    I just can't down vote anymore

    At this point, the final rankings I want:

    1. Harald
    2. Askia
    3. Pacal
    4. Shaka

    What it looks like at this point:

    1. Askia(definitely deserves it, already survived an attack)
    2. Pacal
    3. Shaka
    4. Harald

    Harald Bluetooth - 2
    Pacal - 5
    Askia - 8 (After giving the matter a lot of thought, I've decided I feel Askia should win this. The others are great too, of course, but everything about this one just comes together to make for an awesome impression. The background, the sword, the music...)
    Shaka - 1 (It's a great screen, but the other three have qualities that make me prefer any of them to win before Shaka. Sorry, Shaka.)

    Harald Bluetooth - 2
    Pacal - 5
    Askia - 8 + 1 = 9
    Shaka - 1 - 3 = DEAD

    Askia's is the best screen left, simple. Fire = awesome. Sword = awesome. Beard = awesome.
    Shaka, I enjoy your screen but I prefer Pacal's peacock headwear and Haralds boat, sorry my (sometimes) friend!

    Haral Bluetooth - 3
    Pacal - 5
    Askia - 6

    I'm sorry for Askia, but I'd would have preferred a "more culturally Songhai" background than an ever burning city.
    I love Harald everytime I see him : even in war against him, it's still pleasent to go see his cheerful behaviour !

    HARALD
    This truly is one of the more unique leaderscreens. It's at the crack of dawn, and in the distance you see the longships of the viking warriors approaching. Most stop to a halt as one lone ship crashes upon your shores. Walking towards you, thunderously shaking the ship with each step is the fearsome viking leader. You thank the stars that the day is marked by diplomacy, and not blood.

    Everything from the ship, to the sky, to Harald's movements is both unique, stunning, and cohesive. Also, which other leader int he game actually rage quits when they lose? ;)

    ASKIA
    Why are we doing diplomacy in front of a burning city? Not exactly a great place to get people to like you, or to trick them, or really do anything but look like an evil menace. Now, a Betrayal Garden, THAT would be a place to do diplomacy. We need one of those, hopefully the Bison DLC has a leader in a Betrayal Garden.

    Pacal - 2- Boring, dull colour scheme.
    Askia - 4- The most interesting background, only warmongerer that actually looks like one.

    Pacal - 2 +1=3: It's the best of a poor remaining bunch. Vista is nice I guess.
    Askia - 4 -3=1: Fire is interesting the first time you see it. But after that it becomes dull.

    Nice! Even though the civ itself is disliked gameplay-wise, meeting Harald always rules. Good call.

    Looks like it's Harald Bluetooth by a nose - or a helmet, as the case may be! Congratulations to the Viking conqueror, what a finish!

    Ugh, he was my least favorite of the last 5 or so !

    But oh well, he's still pretty good.

    Just 11 posts ago, Askia was the king of the mountain, and Harald was just hanging on by a string. This has got to be my favourite moment in this thread, narrowly beating Monty going from 30 points to 0 in just one page.
