    Algonquian (Any) 24-3=21 - There is no way they should be leading the table. Actually, I don't really care about them. They don't interrest me.
    Anasazi/Navajo/Other SW NA 22
    Bohemians/Czechs/Great Moravia 17+1=18 - The heart of Europe must be in game. It must survive at least to the top 5.

    Nazca/Moche/Muisca/Other Andean 21-3=18 I just don't see how any of these options are feasible as anything beyond a city-state.

    Tamil/Chola/Sri Lankans (12+1)=13 I think Sri Lanka deserves its own Civ. Plus they and the Tamils played an important role in interacting with Southeast Asia.
    Ukranians/Cossacks (22-3)=19 Unless they make this a Kievan Rus civ, which I doubt. Ukraine hasn't much history of independence. Not too interested in Bohdan Khmelnytsky either.

    Swiss/Belgians/Other Western Europe 9-3=6 The region is overcrowed with civs, maybe Switzerland can work as a civ but it works fine as a citystate.

    Anasazi are impossible, and while I like Navajo I don't like them more than the Algonquians, Andeans, or Olmec. Plus giving them an espionage ability for the Navajo code talkers seems absolutely backwards as they weren't the ones who actually formed and utilized code talkers in their military. If anything that would make more sense as an ability for the United States as they are the ones who actually organized and instituted native american code talkers into their marine divisions, the Navajo didn't form their own armies of code talkers even if their warriors did speak Navajo since that was the language they knew. I'm not saying I would want code talkers to be a US ability since it was a very small part of the country's history, but if anyone were to get them then it would make more sense for the people who actually formed and fielded code talker units to have code talkers.

    Swiss/Belgians/Other Western Europe 6-3=3 Just giving them a little nudge here in the interests of moving things along. If this was a chocolate-themed elimination thread, this option would be winning for sure. :p

    Tamil/Chola/Sri Lankans 14 - The Cholas give necessary Indian diversity but overlap geographically and thematically less than Mauryans/Mughals/Gandhi.
    Ukranians/Cossacks 16 - Relatively unimportant and their spots are covered by Norway, Russia and Scythia.

    Algonquian (Any) 21-3=18 - I'm not interrested in them. And I still say that they shouldn't be leading.

    Anasazi/Navajo/Other SW NA 20 + 1 = 21 Despite what @Returning Lurker said, Firaxis would give the Navajo an espionage boost upon researching Radio anyways, just like how Firaxis intentionally gave Gandhi an obsession with nukes to reflect a bug found in Civ I

    Olmecs/Mixe-Zoque/Other Mesoamerican 9-3=6 (I think Mesoamerica is a bit crowded too, since Aztecs are in, and Maya are all but guaranteed. Besides, as many have pointed out, Olmecs don't even have any well known historical leader)

    Anasazi/Navajo/Other SW NA (21-3)=18 Anasazi (more accurately the Ancestral Puebloans) lack known leaders, and Navajo are Apachean groups and later arrivals to the region. Only the O'odham interest me here, but they are unnamed here.

    Nazca/Moche/Muisca/Other Andean 18
    Olmecs/Mixe-Zoque/Other Mesoamerican 6
    Sabaeans/Himyarites/Yemen 15
    Tamil/Chola/Sri Lankans (14+1)=15 Sri Lanka is not part of India, and has capable leader choices to choose from. Same with Tamils/Cholas.

    Et tu, Nixon? After all I've done for the Ukraine Cossack cause, and this how I am repayed. A knife to the spine. Who could have predicted that you of all people, Richard M. Nixon, would betray my trust?... OH. Oh.

    I actually feel bad now :blush: Imma upvote Olmecs next time. Now that I think of it, Gilgamesh is also primarily known from his epic

    Don't feel too bad, I was mostly just playing about how much that knife to the back hurt. How much pain I was in as the blade tore through my unsuspecting flesh. I'm fine, really!

    (For real it's the way of the game, I was just playing up the drama for comedic value because I genuinely didn't expect it. Everyone else has been against me for a while now so I saw their attack coming. I'm not actually offended or anything, I wouldn't quote Shakespeare and crack stupid history jokes if I was actually bothered!)
