Everyone i’m the saxo gamer and today. We’re here for yet another great great people ranking video. Where today.
We are going to be taking a look at great generals of civ 6. One thing that i want to mention is that a lot of these great generals have changed throughout the various dlc drops and patches and things like that so i’m going to be focusing my rankings on only the most modern version of these great generals and if you want to know the bonuses for them uh in you know the base game. Without the dlcs or things.
Like that then you can go ahead and check out the civ wiki. And it’s got plenty of information on that the other thing that i do want to mention is that i’m not going to be talking about the passive bonuses here. So every great general has a passive bonus.
Where they give five combat strength and one movement. Two units of their era and the next era above them uh and that just is occurring passively to all units within two tiles around them. So that honestly is obviously gonna put pretty much all of these guys at at least a three tier ranking.
So we’re just gonna totally ignore it for the sake of um you know making this actually interesting and we’re gonna focus only on their active bonuses. But to be clear none of the great generals aren’t necessarily bad just because that combat strength bonus is very good just already so let’s go ahead and start with the classical era. So first up we have bautica or boudicca.
I don’t really know what her name is how to pronounce it. But her bonus makes it so that she will convert adjacent barbarian units to your side. So.
This is all barbarian units that are within one tile of her and this one. I think is pretty strong actually especially if you’re. It’s a little bit tough to use it well so of course as always let me go ahead and make sure that i center these.
But um. It is a little bit difficult to use well sometimes because a lot of the times. If you move her near barbarians.
They will just attack her and then she’ll get sent back to the city that uh that she was originally or that’s closest to her so if you escort her with another unit. Though and you get surrounded by barbarians. Then you can get a lot of free military and for that reason.
I just realized i gave her the three already but without even saying it but for that reason. I think she’s gonna deserve a three she is pretty good as i mentioned a little bit hard to utilize in some scenarios. But if you’re able to get even like three units out of using her then that’s a pretty big power spike especially this early on in the game up next.
We have hannibal barca and his bonus makes it so that he will grant one promotion level to a military land unit. This is okay uh it’s it’s really you know it gives you a little bit of extra power from getting a promotion. It really depends you know you’re probably gonna have this on either like a warrior or a slinger or maybe a horseman or something like that because it’s only the classical era.
But this isn’t insanely strong. It’s not particularly good it does give you a little bit of healing just from getting the promotion and obviously the value of the promotion. But it’s really nothing special so for those reasons.
He’s not terrible. But he’s also not great so i think he deserves it too up next. We have sun tzu um.
I i don’t know if i’ve pronounced that correctly. But uh just get ready for the next one it’s gonna be even worse um. But his bonus makes it so that he will create the art of war great work of writing uh.
Which obviously will give you two culture and to tourism. This is pretty bad not gonna lie one great work of writing is just like what’s what’s even the point. It’s just straight up worse than a normal.
Great writer. Um. Obviously you do have the passive bonus.
But based on the active bonus alone. This is absolutely terrible you get two culture and two tourism. Out of it it’s never pretty much never use the active bonus on sun tzu until after you’ve gotten to the point.
Where you no longer have any classical or medieval era units. To get the passive bonus on so not very good for the active bonus. Uh up next.
We have elon musk’s son. Kyle actually i have no idea how to pronounce this it’s f ethyl. Fled ethelfled.
I think is how it’s pronounced. But ethel flood’s bonus will make it so that you gain two loyalty per turn in the city that they’re activated in this as well is it’s okay two loyalty per turn is very rarely gonna actually make the difference between losing a city to loyalty and keeping it um. But in some situations.
It can actually be possible so. I think i’m gonna give them a two as i mentioned this isn’t like it’s not hugely beneficial. But it is in some cases able to make at least a little bit of a difference or maybe.
Buy you a little bit more time to go conquer. Another city. So for those reasons.
I think he deserves the two uh next up we have el cid or maybe. It’s lcd. I don’t know but their bonus makes it so that they will form a core out of a military land unit.
This is a really really strong bonus in fact because uh in the medieval area here you’re obviously not going to be facing pretty much any other course. So. If you have a single core unit um and keep in mind.
It’s a core for free. So you don’t have to produce a second of the same type of unit or anything like that it pretty much doubles. The strength of one unit and makes that a really really powerful unit so for those reasons.
This is a very strong power spike. And if you can get this great general then this is one where i would actually say that um in some cases. The active bonus is even maybe a little bit better than the passive bonus.
But especially if you’re able to get another one of these great generals. But this is definitely quite a strong active bonus and well deserving of a five up next. We have genghis khan.
But if you are playing in rise and fall. Obviously. Genghis.
Khan. Was added as a leader. So the replacement for genghis khan.
Was timur instead and their bonus makes it so that they will grant one promotion level to a military land unit and also give that military land unit uh 25 extra combats combat experience from battle so um. This is a pretty. It’s not a great uh.
Great general honestly i mean. It’s it’s a it’s a good general. It’s not a great general.
You know what i’m saying um. But it’s very similar to hannibal barca uh. It pretty much is just a little bit better.
But i don’t think that 25 combat experience. Uh bonus is enough to really step up the tier. Too much so uh.
This is going to be in the two tier as well pretty much for the same reasons as hannibal annan zynga is up next and their bonus makes it so that you will gain a free envoy this in terms of active bonuses is not good. It’s just. I mean.
One envoy is one envoy. It’s it’s maybe in some cases. It’ll get you a suzerain bonus or something.
Like that. But a single envoy is not worth trading. The passive bonus for so for that reasons i definitely think that uh anand zynga deserves a one christopher’s adolphus is up next and at this point we are in the renaissance era.
I realized i forgot to mention when we hit the classical or when we hit the medieval era um. But gustavus at office’s bonus. We’ll make it so that he instantly creates a bombard unit with one promotion level.
This is actually pretty strong just because you’re in the renaissance era. So you probably don’t have bombard yets bombard. Yet bombards.
Yet um and probably other players don’t either they probably still have either ancient or medieval era walls so one bombard is going to shred through those pretty heftily so i think. This is actually quite strong and deserving of a four just because getting a bombard this early is like just getting a huge siege power spike. And you can really use that to go and beat up somebody that may be near you uh.
Jean de arc is up next and her bonus makes it so that uh she will create a relic. This as well kind of like the uh kind of like sun. Tzu who creates the art of war is just it’s really not good um.
A relic is is you know obviously for faith and for tourism. But uh that’s pretty it’s pretty bad for an active bonus and especially for somebody that you would generally uh assume to be associated with domination victory uh. A relic is just about useless to you so definitely deserving of a1.
There’s plenty of other ways to get relics in the game. And they are a lot more worthwhile than using the active bonus on this great general up next. We’re moving into the industrial era and uh this one is a leader that was added in the new frontier pass so if you’re in the base game.
Then you will have simon bolivar. But if you are in the new frontier pass. You obviously have him as a leader.
So it would be jose de san. Martin. Instead so their bonus makes it.
So. That they will grant for loyalty per turn to a city. This is a little bit better than elon musk’s son over here uh.
So the thing is unlike some of the other great uh. The great people like with the great merchants where um. They would give increasing amounts of gold as you get later into the game like gold as you get later in the game.
Things cost more as well. But loyalty is for the most part pretty much the same in the early game. As it is in the late game so four loyalty per turn is actually quite a bit better than the two that was up there.
So i think. This is an okay active bonus is it enough to make it a more than a two um. I think so yeah.
I think i think this is deserving of a three just because for loyalty is a lot of the time at least gonna slow down the uh. The rate at which you rebel somewhat significantly up next. We have napoleon bonaparte and uh his bonus makes it so that he will form an army out of a military land unit uh.
This one is very similar to el cid up here and like l. Sit very good and deserving of a five. Pretty.
Much. Nobody is gonna have armies at this point. So uh.
If you are able to get this on you know one of your strongest units already so in a recent game that i was playing i was able to get this on a curacao and immediately form a curacao army and that curacao army just goes and decimated pretty much everybody else. I was even fighting against someone who was uh stronger than me in terms of technology. But that curiouser army still had the combat strength to just demolish them so this is a very big power spike and a very strong bonus.
So definitely deserving of the five tier ranking up next. We have uh ronnie lakshmibai or something of that sort and his bonus makes it so that he will instantly create a cavalry unit with one promotion level. So cavalry at this point.
You’re probably not going to have cavalry just yet so this will be a little bit strong. It’s not going to be quite as good as you know forming an army that gives you a lot of extra combat strength. But a free calvary unit is definitely very nice so.
This is also i should mention. This is capital c. Cavalry.
So it is actually like the cavalry unit not just a random cavalry unit um. But this is pretty okay it’s a free unit as well i think this is gonna deserve a three it’s not super insanely strong because the cavalry units themselves are very mobile. But their combat strength isn’t quite as good as you know like heavy cavalry or anything like that but either way.
A free unit is always nice and it does have one promotion level. So i think this is well deserving of a3 john monash is up next and we are into the modern era. Now so his bonus makes it so that he will grant one promotion level and 75 extra combat experience to a military unit.
This as well is very similar to the other ones as i of course mentioned um. This time. Though.
We are up to almost double our combat experience. So i think that this one actually is deserving of a three being able to gain levels pretty fast is very helpful. Because then you’ll be able to heal up faster a little bit more you’ll be able to climb through those promotion trees a little more and depending on who you use this on some of the later promotions are quite good so being able to get them get to them a lot.
Faster is something that is pretty valuable. So i think that is well deserving of a three we have marina roskova up next and her bonus makes it so that you will gain one air slot in this district that user in so you have to use her in an aerodrome or city. I believe um.
But either way one air unit slot. Is it’s really not that good i find. It’s it to be quite rare that i’m ever even really filling up my air unit slots.
Uh and if i really need one. I’ll just use a military engineer to build a hangar or something like that so definitely not a very good active bonus. I think well deserving of a one there’s there’s other ways to get air unit slots that uh will not cause you to have to use the active bonus on a great general so compared to the other bonuses.
I think this one is just pretty bad sumori toure is the last one in the modern era and their bonus makes it. So that they will instantly create a spec. Ops unit with one promotion level.
This is okay so spec. Ops is still part of like the recon class of units. So the recon class of units is not particularly strong in terms of combat strength.
So strictly speaking for domination this won’t be particularly good. But you can use it to scout out a little bit as well. I think that this is a little bit weaker than you know getting a free cavalry or something like that just because of the value of a spec ops in terms of actually attacking somebody so for those reasons i think that he’s gonna deserve a2 douglas macarthur is up next and we are into the atomic era one thing that i do want to mention is that it’s really irritating so.
If you haven’t noticed for um pretty much all of the other great people there are three great people per era. But for the great generals. There’s three great people for every era except for the modern era or the the atomic era.
There’s four and there’s only two for the information era. So uh the game is literally unplayable because of this and i’m gonna uninstall it for my computer right now but for whatever unsatisfying reason they have four atomic error generals. But anyways doug douglas macarthur will instantly create a tank unit with one promotion level uh.
I think this is about uh level with the instantly creating a cavalry unit tank units are fairly strong uh at this point you are in the atomic era. So you’re probably kind of close to unlocking them yourself. Which you know take that for what you will if someone’s significantly ahead of you in text.
They’ll probably have tanks as well. So this won’t be quite as strong. But either way.
It is a free unit with one promotion. So i think. It’s deserving of a three dwight owls of dwight eisenhower is our next.
Great general and his bonus makes it so that he will give you an additional five percent production towards military units. This is pretty good just as a whole because this applies obviously to all of your cities for all of the military units that you build in the future. It is a little bit late in the game.
So if this was early on in the game. This would be like instantly a five great general. But since we are this late uh you probably already have at least a little bit of a standing army going now that’s gonna be you know well built up.
And you probably don’t have to build that many units. Unless you’re losing a lot. But either way five percent production towards military units is still pretty good and i think deserving of a four our next.
Great general is georgie zhukov and his bonus makes it so that you will gain fifty percent increase to flanking bonuses for all of your military units. So this is pretty good so. The flanking bonus is normally plus three per adjacent.
Unit so this will make it plus 45 per adjacent unit and that will stack up. Quite heftily. If you have a lot of units clumped together.
So this one. I think um. I’m debating between a four and a five here.
I think i’m actually going to go with a five because if you’re able to position your units. Well and have them next to each other then this can give you a big increase in your combat strength as a whole just from getting those increased flanking bonuses. So i think this is a very good great general and uh.
It’s as i mentioned one that’s a little bit harder to make use of because you have to understand flanking bonus. But as long as you understand flanking bonus. This is a very strong bonus.
Our last atomic era general is suiterman and their bonus makes it so that you will gain plus six loyalty per turn for the city. So kind of like simone bolivar or who was the other one or uh. You know elon musk’s son uh.
This is still gonna be pretty much it’s gonna be pretty good as i mentioned uh whenever you’re this late in the game. Though i find that a lot of the time. I’m just trying to snipe capitals.
But even so this can still be helpful for holding a capital city that you’ve sniped and there’s still a lot of you know opposing cities around you um. So i think that this is gonna deserve a three as well six loyalty does make a pretty substantial difference because you know against population or amenity issues or things like that so at least. It’s decent for helping you hold cities.
So i think it’s deserving of the three we are now into the information era with the last two great generals. So first up we have ahmad shah massand and their bonus makes it that they will instantly create a modern at unit with one promotion level. This is i don’t know i mean.
It’s it’s fine. I guess we are already into the information era. So most people are probably gonna be very close to having modern at and um.
I don’t value modern at quite as much as i would value like cavalry units um. This can’t be good defensively though and it is you know i i feel compelled to still give it a three just because it is at least a competent military unit. That you can use so it’s it’s pretty much on the same level as the cavalry or the tank and a little bit better than the spec ops.
I think and last up we have vijaya uh will malarante wilmore latte. I don’t know um. But their bonus makes it so that they will gain one promotion level and 100 bonus combat experience to a military land unit um.
This one as well i think is well deserving of a three it’s there’s not really too much to say here. It’s pretty much the same as a lot of the other great generals. Except this time.
We’re all the way up to double xp. So with this great general. You’ll be drinking dew and derate or drinking mountain dew and eating those dorito chips to get your double xp in call of duty um.
So it’s at least a decent bonus and those extra combat levels will gain you quite a bit of promotions and healing as well so definitely deserving of the three so right here is our final tier ranking here. If you have any comments or anything like that things that you think should be changed let me know in the comment section below. Because as always as i mentioned in all these videos uh.
These are kind of subject to a little bit of personal preference and things of that sort how i like to play the game. So some people might value some of these a little bit more than. I do or maybe.
Some of them a little bit less. But either way let me know in the comment section below. If you think i’m an idiot for ranking.
These guys where i did and as always you can fight with each other about where things are supposed to go.
