Just a fun thread for some light discussion and talk about which civs we actually ENJOY playing as most. We can all debate for ages on which ones are the best and the worst, but some folks might not enjoy turtling up as babylon and just scientistspam all day long, they'd rather go in a viking pillage tour with Denmark. So, this topic is for those who just want to talk about their personal favorites to use, the ones you have the most enjoyable games with, no matter the reason. For me, there's 3 standouts: The Inca I love everything about this civ. Military wise, the Slinger may be the weakest link in their chain, but that's more then made up for by their maneuvrability over the hills. This, combined with their extremely cheap roads, enables you to have a very mobile force supported by cheap roads. The Terrace Farm is probably the best UI in the game, the way it supports huge cities with some powerful production along with it is mouth-wateringly good. The Dutch Maybe I'm slightly native-biased here, but the Dutch just play so well for me. Early game flexibility (Do I need money to maintain a bigger army or extra happiness for the expansion?) followed up by the second best UI in the game. Marsh Polders aren't that great (Though really, 4 food, 1 hammer and 2 gold from a marsh is hard to argue with) but once you got some flood plains, hoo. They follow it up with being a terror on the seas come Rennaisance. Flexible start, dies down a bit at late classical/early medieval, but once you have hit Economics and Navigation, they're just so much fun to play. Russia Russia is to me all about their UI. That extra production may not seem like much, but their early cities get kickstarted so well from it, not to mention in the later game, your cities will be churning out units and buildings in no time. The extra gold in the early game from pawning off your extra strategics and the ability to field a larger strategics-fueled army is a nice bonus to that. The Krepost is forgettable and the Cossack is in the bottom half of UU's, but still, Russia is so much fun to play due to their high production rates... ...come and think of it, I seem to love civs that have a knack for high production. Huh.
