    I might go Inca vs R&F and Vanilla Civs, but I'm actually tempted to go Vanilla with a rework like England, Russia, China or some other, and just play for the mechanics at first. I did the same with R&F. The music is most important to me, and I will follow each game I finish by playing a game with a new Civ, like Inca, against all existing ones. Then next game I will pick a new Civ, add vanilla and R&F civs, plus the one (for example Inca) that I just played with. This way I get to feel their styles as a player and as AI, and I get to hear their music enough.

    Bit early for this poll. But for now i will choose Inca.

    If Ottomans have a cool artillery unit or janissary mechanic i might go for them. I’ve got good hopes for this nation to be fun.

    Germany? Your picture, and the fact that you have beer in your name, and Germany is widely known for being a beer country. Am I right? What did I win? ^^

    Tricky choice but leaning towards Inca initially, mainly because the music sounded cool, also probably easier to try a peaceful-ish civ to get to grips with the new mechanics.
    I know this doesn't count to the poll but also looking forward to playing a revamped England as they are pretty meh currently.

    It's CANADA! Though the Bismark avatar is a bit of a red herring.

    Oh I was SO close! How could I have known that a Canadian, calling himself Canadian X, would want to play as Canada?!

    Nonsense, the pertinent clue is the "Blue" in his name. So he means France, Mapuche, Korea, America, Cree, Athens, Norway, Persia, Scotland, or (in all likelihood) Sweden. Or Aztec if you count turquoise as blue (I do, but a lot of weird people consider it green?). :p

    What about Gorgo, the Khmer, Maori, Indonesia (that's more blue than the Aztec's green) and both Indian leaders? :p

    Forgot about them because I was focused on the primary color mostly (though that still puts Chandy in the same category as Montezuma)...Wait, what about Gorgo? She's white and burgundy. :p

    Unless the next few reveals change my mind I think I will either play Canada or Eleanor/England as my first as it's a pretty normal play style to allow me to get use to the new Gathering Storm mechanics before learning how to use the Civ's bonuses. I really can't wait to play the Maori but because they are so different I think I will leave them for my 3rd or later play through.

    The Maori first look shows she is now the same as Persia or Korea's colours.

    I wasn't counting alternate jerseys since the available information suggests the player always has default colors.

    That looks blue to me. :p
    Though the border colors looks closer to white in game, I always saw a faint amount of blue.

    Hmm, looks like the same ambiguous blue-green-grey as Dunmer skin in Morrowind. :p

    If they get in, I'll first play as Northern Ireland and then as Palestine.

    Maori. They had me with the haka.

    My wife is going to hate listening to me doing my own haka chant every time my little warrior dudes are crushing enemies under foot :)
