    Portuguese 10+1 = 11 (giving them a boost as the Dutch seem to be on the way out. They are far too important)

    We don't need a fourth Hellenic. We need a first Turkish and I think that the Ottomans have more than earned that spot through science, art, economics, cultural impact on the modern world, mountains of corpses, and bureaucracy. I'm not going to lie, I'm starting to get the feeling like people are just downvoting everything I upvote out of spite. Maybe it's just paranoia or perhaps it's confirmation bias but to me it just seems more than coincidental that every single thing I've upvoted almost immediately gets downvoted to the point of danger or complete elimination from the game. So far only the Inca, which was my very first upvote and the second vote cast in their favor in the entire game, has avoided such a fate.

    Dutch 5 (4 + 1) I know we have enough Civs in Europe, but the Dutch have been very important, and I think they should at least place above Byzantines and Hittites
    Ethiopians 15
    Hittites 13 (16 - 3) We can't have another civ in Europe but we can have three in Anatolia? Anyway, these guys are probably the least interesting civ here, should have been eliminated a while ago, and I'd much rather see the Ottomans.

    Hittites 10 from 13-3 Hittites would be nice but for real earth map, its too close to Greece or Ottoman Empires in TSL map and for ancient civ, Hittites is not my priority as Babylonian is my first choice for being next ancient civ to be added.

    Siamese 16 from 15 + 1 - My favorite civilization in South East Asia and my first priority for SE Asia Civs, Siam should be in the game as one of SE Asian civ that survived from European colonization, this time Siam should lead by Naresuan for this time.

    Dutch 2 (5 - 3) Another European colonial civ, stronger than its size would suggest, but still not on par with England, Spain or France. The one argument I can see for the Dutch is that they'd be a good terraforming civ, but I haven't seen any evidence that the devs have figured out how to support that.

    Byzantines 5 - 3 = 2 Not that I do not want to see them, but having all those greek civs are getting a little bit too much ...
    Carthaginians 9
    Dutch 2 + 1 = 3 I far prefer the portuguese over the Dutch, but I feel like this is turning into an anti-european crusade ... I mean, yeah, Europe is overcrowded, and Macedon's inclusion doesn't help. But it doesn't mean that we should exclude a civ for the sole principle that it's european. The Dutch had a powerful colonial empire, but it doesn't mean they're bonuses should be on colonies : it could either be on trade, with the powerful VOC, on amenities, with their monopole on resources, or on culture, with the artistic Dutch golden age. I think it getting a little bit unfair to them, especially when I'm seeing they're about to be eliminated, and carthaginians, which despite being in Africa, are closer to Europe in history (and TSL maps), since they're history is kind of marginal without Rome, is still on the run. So, I'll upvote them, because as a civ, they deserve to be in.

    Babylonians 24+1=25 I'm content to let them sit at 25 for the time being. Should ultimately be Top 5 along with Incas, Mongols, and a couple others.

    I have already stated the reason a few posts ago. This is now simply about civs I want to support, and would be more interesting now, versus civs I feel like we could get at a later period. I really don't feel like copy-pasting myself with every vote. It is the same reason from now on. I want civ X sooner, and civ Y later.

    Hittites (7-3)=4 It probably should go before all of these Civs, their history is interesting, but I think Firaxis would have trouble finding someone to write Hittite or Luwian dialogue. Look at what they did with Sumeria. I think that is one of the reasons they haven't appeared since Civ3.

    Ottoman Turks (13+1)=14 I feel like they will return soon, with the Janissary as their unique. I prefer them to appear earlier than the Hittites. If the leader isn't Suleiman, it could be Mehmed II (Sorry, Byzantines :p)

    Moderator Action: Please follow the rules. Providing a rationale for your vote (even the same rationale, over and over again) is only reason we allow elimination games in the game forums; otherwise they would be relegated to the Forum Games forum.
