Hey guys (and gals)! This is not just out of curiosity, but also as forward planning for me. Is there a consensus on who is the weakest leader in Civ4? Not as AI, which might factor in their behavior, but as a human player. I have noticed that some leadership traits are considered clearly superior to others, so I'd like to know, who is the worst leader? Likewise, I'd be interested in who is the worst civilization. I guess this comes to starting techs, UU and UB - did I forget something? In case the worst leader is also from the worst civilization: Great. In case not, what would be the worst possible combination? In case there is no consensus on these questions, just give me your personal opinion or you top 3 (or should I say "bottom" 3?^^) One of the reasons I'm asking, is that I would like to try the harder difficulties in the future and I'd like to make it as hard as possible. Nothing worse than thinking you're able for a higher difficulty after one game, only to realise that you were playing with safety wheels on the whole time because you had a super strong leader/civ.
