Time for civ7 to do away with civ leaders. Why. Leaders come and go just like governments and policies. Alexander didn't lead greece the whole time anymore than greece was democratic the whole time. Civ is all about the "what if" and changing history. America building the pyramids and egypt founding Buddhism. If arabia can attract the thomas edison great person then why cant Arabia also follow teddy roosevelts or ghengis khan leadership instead. How. One idea. Build upon governors and religions. Say theres a pool of leaders, pantheon style. The civics tree grants leader points at specific civics, governor style. You use the leader point to choose a leader from the leader pool. This way spain can benefit from ghengis khans decision's and leadership while mongolia reached golden age under Abraham Lincoln .
