    We have a list on page 1, and here are some info on your civ list what I think:
    Crete - no mayor militaristic player, only trading, we know little about them - OUT
    Moundbuilders/Hopwell - you kidding me? - OUT
    Ethiopia - was in civ4, in our lits already - IN
    Israel - would maybe cause stir, and were never that big really either - OUT
    South Africa - never a great civ, while the zulu was - OUT

    I guess your knowledge about Israel is based mainly on stereotypes...
    Anyway, I agree with veBear, Israel was never a superpower and if added to Civ should be one of the last additions.

    Perhaps Majapahit should receive a naval UU? Or a Musketman or longswordman replacement?

    I like the idea of the Candi

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candi_of_Indonesia

    speaking of which, i think India could have had a "Mandir" UB too to represent the Hindu temple. Alternatively, they will eventually implement religion in some form.

    I looked in the Civ V xml files and there are hints there, that maybe religion will be back in the game in a later stage of it's development.

    I've already stated this but I suppose there is no issue in me stating it
    again.

    When is a poll going to be made for this? For instance:
    "Do you support this civ list for submitting to firaxis?"
    Or something like that.

    Now let me also ask, since we'd be lucky if the list wasn't
    trashed aside, why are we bothering with leaders? Now
    for certain civs like the Norse, Canute is the only real
    symbol of a united norse empire. But for certain others
    the leader is rather unimportant in comparison to the chance
    of seeing the empire in the game.

    Hungary. Raided through Europe in the 800s, just like the vikings. Then it became a regional power in the Middle Ages for centuries.
    Not strictly Hungary itself, but they came back on international politic stage in the post-imperialistic era as the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

    Edit: There is already a Hungarian Civilization for Civ 4 IIRC.

    Yes, but still Poland were chosen as our slavic representation as they were even greater than Hungary.... and Austria-Hungary is AFAIK better representated by Austria as AFAIK it was the leading part.

    Well the hungarians are a turkic people who spoke a finno-ugrian language.
    They aren't slavic.

    The austro-hungarian empire was a young, rather pathetic empire that showed
    both austria and hungary at their worst. While the empire of hungary not only
    established an empire that lasted for hundreds of years, but it was at it's
    maxium height for most of that time, and only when the empire collapsed
    did it shrink in size by any considerable amount.

    Now overall I see poland as something more important to add, but overall
    it's rather important to include hungary. And seeing as we might
    get the inca in an upcoming DLC, why not just add hungary to the
    list?

    Well, that's the problem. You don't want to add too many European civs, but since Europe has so many important civs you can't ignore, this becomes a little difficult.

    to thowse complaining about too big number of European civs: in Civ we usually have lots of ones that were on the western side in Cold War. When it comes to the East, it's usually Russia and that's it.

    Yea, the not-so-free world is usually left out in civ.

    YOU CAPATALEEST PEEGS! XD Merely joking.

    But if there's any hope for more countries of eastern europe it
    lies in poland. Hungary is awesome but is not QUITE as well known.

    Poland indeed. Some reasons why:
    1. They were important, 2. They are eastern european, 3. They are well known, 4. and last but not least, They are good carpenters who come all the way from Poland to work for us lazy Norwegians

    Exactly. As if there is nobody between Germany, Russia and Greece. I would like to see civs like Poland and Hungary in the game. Mainly because they were never made officially by Firaxis. Instead they focused on not-real-civs like Byzantium and Holy Rome.

    AFAIK that IS unrealistic. Especially since they representent the whole Arab Peninsuela with Arabia.

    Fixed.

    It's like combining all American and European countries under "the Christian West", but whatever.
