What is your favorite Civilization? I know this poll has been done to death, but I don't just mean it's your favorite just because you think it has the absolute best UA/UU/UB. Otherwise it would just be Greece, China, etc. You can vote for whatever reason you like obviously, but I'd like to get opinions of Civs beyond just "I like them more because they let me win 50 turns earlier." My personal favorite is the Aztecs. Montezuma's UU is nice for an extremely early rush especially if there is lots of jungle and makes for pretty powerful upgrade. Longswordsman with 50% jungle bonus and 2 Health per unit kill? Yes please. His UB is extremely nice and makes good use of lake tiles. Lake tiles provide an additional +2 food, an additional 15% Food Supply on top of the +2 food from a normal Water Mill? Yes please. It allows you to quickly build up huge populations in any city near a lake or river tile. But it's his UA that allows me to immerse myself the most in this game. Sacrificial Captives provide culture for each enemy killed. I'm not sure if it scales with difficulty or the length of the game. But on King and Standard Time, I'm getting +9 Culture from Longswordsman and Knights. It allows me to gain huge amounts of culture and still have a huge empire. After awhile of playing as Montezuma, you start looking at the enemy units purely as sacrificial fodder for your empires culture. An enemy Horseman is no longer just an obstacle to over come on your way to victory and the destruction of your opponent, but a juicy +6 culture for an early empire.
