We've all seen power rankings of sports teams, it's time to power rank the civilizations. It's all a matter of our opinion. I'm playing as Persia for the 2nd time, and boy is this civ crazy OP. I suppose if you never go to war it would be an average civ (their tile improvement is pretty cool though). It's like Blitzkrieg warfare. I just annihilate everything in my path. My current game I'm so far out ahead I think I have no choice but to make them #1. #1: Persia: see above #2: Australia: So powerful I won't even play them anymore. It feels like cheating #3: Rome: I discovered how superior they were when I played a game against myself using another civ #4: Germany: I just find they do nearly everything a little better (except religion). #5: China #6: Aztec #7: Macedon #8: Kongo #9: England #10: Arabia honorable mentions: Russia (I think maybe they should be in the top 10, but I'm not sure where), Scythia, Sumeria, India. I'm only going to rank 10. It's hard to really sort which ones are better than others the further down the list you go. Even 8 through 10 I had trouble deciding who to place in those slots. Arabia I should rank higher, but I admit I have not played a full game with them yet. But on paper they look like they should be in the top 10. Feel free to share your power rankings. If you want you can divide them up by victory conditions, but I see no need to do that. I prefer to rank them for how well they dominate games overall.
