    Yeah. But at least that was a little more believable. I'[m pretty sure NO ONE has ever owned all of Africa. The Native americans were kind of like the Celts. They never were one united band or civilization or nation. They were always divided. NOT Africa.

    Oh no say that isn't so... I don't see why they'd use Ethiopians or Ghanans as the OP suggested, but Zulu would be the acceptable name. This is absolutely absurd. There's Egypt and a generic African civ? What the heck is that?!

    Yeah, it's true alright...

    Here's the screen shot:



    He does say "Shaka Zulu of the Africans" though, which is maybe a little less stupid than just Shaka of the Africans...

    Sweet! Do we get Elizabeth and Napoleon of the Europeans? How about Catherine and Mao of the Asians? What about Washington and Sitting Bull of the Americans?

    This is just...Wow. Revolutions is pulling a Railroads on us.

    Yes, stop the press. This is definitely the biggest calamity to befall on the gaming business since the great videogame crash of '84.

    I think it's quite a pity this African thing. They should've just included more civs, 20 would've been fine. We could have African, Asian, and European civs with a few Native American ones too. Then everyone (except them Polish ;) ) is happy.

    Yeah. Shaka of the Africa is pretty stupid. They should change it to Zulu. Especially since they're using Shaka. It's like putting Napoleon of the Europeans or like Genghis Khan of Asia. I think it's pretty dumb.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:
    @ Dutchking: i agree. They should just add more Civs so everybody is happy.

    THis is a horrible decision and an insult to a good number of people. I'm surprised there hasn't been more angry and louder threads than this.

    In Civ5, let us assume, thereforth, that there will be these 5 civs:

    - Western Civ - leader: Julius Caesar, Victoria
    UU: Awesome Kick-Non-Western-Butt Gunperson +100% attack versus anyone not Western

    - Eastern Civ - leader: Genghis Khan
    UU: Nomad - raids and... raids and... yeah, raids.

    - Middle Civ - leader: Cleopatra
    UU: Terrorist - bombs.

    - Native America Civ - leader: Montezuma II
    UU: Nature-Worshipper - -100% vs. gun units

    - Africa Civ - leader: Shakalakalaka
    UU: African Spearman - +50% city attack to represent savageness
