This is my first thread, so if I did anything wrong, please tell me So, what do you want in Civ 5? Personally, I'd like: The Byzantine Empire in great detail They were around, assuming you start with Constantine I and end with the Ottomans in 1453, for over 1,000 years. No single dynasty (China and the Maya don't count since China was in Civil war half of their history and the Maya ended up migrating halfway through their history to an area thousands of miles away from their home land), so they deserve recognition equal to places like Greece, Rome, and America. The Confederate States of America Civ Sure, they were short-lived and lost the only war they participated in, but they deserve to be in the game. They forever changed the face of America and the Africans living there. And for those who like the what-if element, look up Harry Turtledove's books. The one on the CSA winning the war is what I want you to see. Various leaders By that, I mean something like governors of mayors. Like in the Total War series, there was a different governor for each city. From this, you could increase the potency of revolts and bribery. Tactics Sure, Civ 4 solved the spearmen - beats - tank problem, but I still see instances where victory isn't gained because the battles are done by chance. Anyone know how to fix this? Just my two cent's worth.
