Then, for a moment, I thought, If I’m facing these questions what about others. So, I did some research & wrote a post answering all of your questions. So, jump ahead:
What is Civilization VI?
Before proceeding ahead, I would start with basic information about the game. Civilization VI is a turn-based strategical 4X multiplayer video game. It is published under the banner of 2K Games & Take-Two Interactive. Civilization VI is the 6th part of the civilization video game series. However, the sad part is that Civilization VI is the last part of the series.
Initially, the game was released for Microsoft Windows & Mac OS in 2016. Later in 2017, the ports of Civilization VI for Linux & iOS were released & 2018 was the year when the game launched exclusively for Nintendo Switch console. Within two weeks of its release, more than 1 million units of Civilization VI were sold. In addition to this, the game won several awards in the gaming category.
Civilization VI Best Leader
I have been following the Civilization video gaming series from so long that I can’t even remember properly. The first Civilization game that I played was the 3rd edition & since then I have seen many changes & improvements in the game. By changes, I mean is that with each edition, new civilizations are introduced. Every Civilization must have a strong leader. So, as a player, you must learn their behaviours & playing styles from the beginning.
When I talk about my favourite leaders in Civilization 6, I follow only 4-5 leaders out of available leaders. So, if you want to know about them then here is the list of my favourite leaders ranked from top to bottom:
- Peter’s Russia
- Tomyris’ Scythia
- Barbarossa’s Germany
- Qin Shi Huang’s China
- Seondeok’s Korea
As per my point of view, these are my favourite leaders of Civilization VI. Besides, if you play this game then let me your favourite Civilization 6 characters in the comments section given below.

Online Multiplayer not Included in iOS/Switch Version of Civilization VI?
After the released of ‘Rise and Fall’ expansion, several Nintendo users & switch users complained that Civilization 6 does not have any online multiplayer mode. Well, regarding the issue, a representative of Civilization VI explained the reason why a most demanded feature is missing:
“It sounds basic until you realize that both private and public games required significant back end work.”
“Civ VI on desktop utilizes Steam for things like friends lists (required for private games) and server listing (required for public games). Implementing these things per unique system takes considerable effort. I’m aware the Switch has some of those systems, but it still requires custom implementation.”
On asking about the missing online multiplayer mode on iOS version of the Civilisation VI, he said,” The Mac App Store version and iOS version do not have online multiplayer for similar reasons.”
That’s all for now. If you found the above mention information useful or have any question related to Civilization VI, then do let me know via the comments section. I will try my best to answer your query as soon as possible.
