    Some small rules for this thread:
    Here we are about to set a list to help Firaxis. To do this we need to discuss possibilities. The main goal is to actually make a compleate list of civs we want in the first expansion, thinking that we need some surprises and some superpowers. Here are our current civ list of possible ideas

    Most Wanted:
    Norse/Vikings - IN
    Spain - IN
    Inca - IN
    Carthage - IN
    Maya - IN

    Much Wanted:
    Portugal - IN
    Poland - IN
    Dutch - IN
    Ethiopia - IN
    Zulu - IN

    Wanted
    Polynesia
    Byzantium
    Sioux - OUT
    Khmer
    Indonesia/Majapahit - IN
    Celts - IN
    Korea
    Dutch
    Assyrians - OUT
    Hebrews - OUT
    Timurids OR Mughals - OUT
    Austria
    Hungary
    Bulgaria
    Aborigines OR Maori - OUT


    While we have the Most Wanted: section, we surely need to have some of those others in the Second EP too, so those are open for discussion. Currently this is the list of the civs who we want in the expansion (see under here) and this list will be updated until we reach a total of 10 civs after some discussion.


    CURRENT CIV LIST WITH LEADERS
    Majapahit - Gajah Mada
    Poland - Jan Sobieski
    Maya - Pacal
    Portugal - Afonso Henriques
    Norse - Canute
    Zulu - Shaka OR Cetshwayo
    Celts - Vercingetorix OR Boudica OR Cunobelin
    Carthage - Hannibal Barca (though they could always be free to surprise us with Hamilcar Barca)
    Dutch - Willem van Oranje
    Ethiopia - Menelik II

    I agree with the Norses, but I would first pick Spain, Maya (and/or Inca) and maybe some "Aboriginal"-like civ?

    I didn't like the empty places Firaxis left in the world overall but to leave Spain out was a no-no for me.

    Based on the movie intro, one of the first dlc civilizations you'll see will be the Vikings.

    I personally would like to see the Huns with Attila as the leader.

    Byzantines as #1. I feel that most Westerners don't know enough about the Byzantine Empire to understand how important they were to history. The Byzantines preserved Roman culture and science for hundreds of years, converted the Bulgars and Slavs to Christianity, and served as a buffer against Islamic expansion by the sword into Europe when other European cultures were poorly developed and vulnerable.


    The rest:

    Spanish
    Mongols
    Vikings
    Zulus
    Koreans
    Mayans and/or Incans

    Ahh, there's always a couple of those after every new Civ, this one won't be different, I reckon :D
    Ok, these are my top 7 civs that I want to see in a Expansion:

    Spain - How the hell the original game shipped without them, I will never know
    Mongols - Same here
    Inca - Much more cultured, advanced and organized civilization than the Aztecs ever were
    Malinese - Another huge empire that gets constantly underrated.
    Kjmer - More important than Siam, they were more of a local superpower at the apex of their influence, IMHO
    Byzantines - A civilization that shaped Europe for centuries
    Koreans - In some respects they have had an even bigger influence than the Japanese if we take in account their whole history rather than the recent one

    Honourable mentions:

    Portugal - Herois do mar, and all that jazz
    Netherlands - Small yet sturdy and powerful
    Vikings (a term that loosely encomprises Norway, Sweden and Scandinavia)
    Sumeria - The better, more lasting version of Babylon
    Zulu - Influential, albeit short lived civ

    This, plus Carthage would be cool as well. And personally I'd go for the Inca Empire over the Mayans, just because I want to see Terrace Farms.

    I think Byzantium should be in the last of the expansions, mainly because currently we have the Ottomans using the same area of the globe. If not it would just be even less space for greece and ottomans to expand on.

    Denmark!? They did not have by far the impact on the world as their Norse ancestors, so I think that for firaxis at least that's a no-go.

    The Danes would represent the Norse. I just didn't want a generic "Norse" civ.

    Well, having the danes as the name is as off as using the term Viking. It representates the Danish and the Danish alone, while Norse is more a term coined for the scandianvians during the Viking Age. So Danes is compleately off.
