Civ5: Best leaders for each Victory
By NordyPi
Here is a list that I created after listening to multiple inputs from various sources:
(This guide is for the Brave New World DLC)


Please put suggestions in comments below!

What is it? Simply stated, create an army strong enough to capture every other players capital!

- Oda Nobunaga(Japan)
Japans unitsalways fight with full power, even when damaged. A unit with but one HP left can destroy an enemy unit just as easy as a 60 HP unit. Fishing boats give out one culture each, and atolls give two culture each. The Samurai, which replaces the Longswordsman, generates Great Generals faster, helping pump your army with +15% combat bonus. The Japanese Zero is a great unit to help guard your carriers, as it is cheap and requires no oil.

- Attilia(The Huns)
The Huns can produce the Battering Ram, a powerful siege engine that has a +300% damage bonus when attacking cities. The Horse Archer takes no penalty from rough terrain, benifits from fighting in open terrian, and requires no horses to build. The Hunnic cities also recieve +1 prodution for every pasture worked, and the Huns can burn captured cities to the ground at double the speed.

- Elizabeth(England)

- Wu Zetian(China)

- Shaka(Zulu)

- Genghis Khan(Mongolia)
Breifing: Research techs as fast as possible to be able to build parts to a rocket that is sent to Alpha Centauri.

- Nebuchadnezzar II(Babylon)

- Sejong(Korea)

Generate enough tourism to overcome the other civs culture.

- Pedro II(Brazil)

- Ramesses II(Egypt)

- Napoleon(France)

Allie as many city-states and befriend other civs to get enough votes to become the world leader.

- Alexander(Greece)

- Enrico Dandolo(Venice)

- Gustavus Adolphus(Sweden)
Broad Victory Leaders
Leaders who can win any victory type as easy as the others.



(need more suggetions guys!)
Happiness Victory
Just be happy.

Is happy with very few cities. The less cities you have, the better off you are.

Great at using strategic resources to produce production.
Use the strategic resources to her advantage and boost up happiness(and productivity).

Extra sight on units allows better natural wonder discovery, and also helps you fing luxury resources to make your people very, very happy.

Also, on high difficulties Japan is awful. Samurai can't upgrade to Musketmen, so their window of time is even narrower than the Iroquois Mohawk Warrior. Zeroes are only useful if you can get to Atomic Era before everyone else, and Japan receives no science bonuses.

WTF are Catherine and Washington doing on the happiness list? Their bonuses are basically completely unrelated to happiness. Why not someone with a happiness building like Egypt (Burial Tomb) or Celts (Celiedh Hall)?

Broad victory as a type without the Mayans? Really?

+2 seicne +2 faith per city means they're gonna get a pantheon first and are one of the more competitive science civs (they're not babylon good, but they're good). Atalists ensure a stable early game on any difficulty, which is where the AI's advantages are most noteworthy, and free great people of every type lets them do a bit of everything.

They're flat out the game's "Jack of all trades" civ, able to go in any direction as easily as any other direction, with a bonus to them all. Free great scientist + bonus science = science victory assist, free tourism great people and an assured religion. Atalists letting you build cheaper archers early means you can early war with the aztecs and huns, not as well but it's viable, and religion is an easy way to a diplo victory.

NordyPi dont take any notice of the people that say ur list is shit.... even if it is (which its not) the fact that your helping new players out in some way is still good
