    Maybe it's the way their AI is adjusted, but I find Khmer to be pretty weak, yet Survayaman always has the highest score in my games. He's followed by or equaled by Gilgamesh, who I can only assume is ahead from a tech lead of having early courthouses.

    Has anybody ever paid close attention to this phenomenon? In Warlords, it was always Wang Kon and Mansa in the lead, presumably from Financial plus their amazing UBs.

    totally agree with Gilgamesh, I didn't noticed the same phenomenon with Sury, but Zara Yakob would be another candidate who seems to be quite good in my games.

    Gilgamesh is usually mid table in my games. Zara Yaqob and Pacal always seem to be at the top when they appear. Monty dead last (or eliminated) nearly always.

    Zara Yaqob always seems to do very well, but looking at his traits, I have no idea why. Anyone have a explanation?

    WTBCzero: You answered your own question, Zara always does well because of his traits! It's a great trait combination, remember Firaxis changed Augustus's traits from Creative/Organized because they were too powerful in combination with the Praetorian. Creative/Organized is extremely powerful because it allows you to expand fast and claim a large amount of land before slowing down your economy. And Zara's UB also allows him to spread his culture faster so he can claim even more land. He's probably one of the most powerful leaders in BTS.

    Pacal seems to skip on a military in my games. But Zara is always deadly.

    Creative is more powerful than you give it credit for.
