Civ 6 Tier List 2023

On this page, we’ve chosen to compile the most comprehensive Civilization 6 tier list. We will be rating everything from leaders and civilizations to pantheons to marvels and natural wonders for the whole game, including the game’s leaders and civilizations (vanilla plus Rise and Fall, Gathering Storm, and New Frontier).

With a slight modification, this page was last updated in February 2022. The update will provide comprehensive answers to all of the most frequently asked questions regarding the game. A substantial upgrade to the tier list occurred in May 2021, and it mirrored the large April balancing and update patch that had been applied.

Because of the several expansions that have been released, Civilization 6 gamers now have a large number of civilizations and leaders to choose from before beginning the game. 

When all of the expansions are taken into consideration, there are 58 leaders / CIVs in the game as of Gathering Storm (including New Frontier Pass). Different leaders clearly have different strengths and weaknesses, and when you combine this with other aspects of the gameplay (such as which victory condition you are pursuing or which pantheon you should choose), this game becomes even more complex, which is what prompted us to create this Civ 6 Tier List

The good news is that Civilization is famously addicting and one of the most replayable games we’ve ever played, thanks in large part to the game’s layers of complexity and flexibility to play in your own manner. Add in a little bit of chance with each new map you go on, and you’ve got yourself a riveting experience every time you press the “Start Game” button.

Here is the ultimate Civ 6 Tier List, where we have rated 58 leaders and CIVs to determine who is the greatest and worst of the best and worst of the worst. Continue reading to view a breakdown of the victories by category.
