Israel did not enjoy the unfettered Middle East expansion they had in Mk1, and only played a bit part in this tournament. Most of their contribution concentrated on the sheer amount of scouts they sent around a world they would never conquer. King David may have killed Goliath in one of my favourite Bible chapters ever, but his AI counterpart could not even keep Bethlehem from the Ayyubids. In the Final Performance Rankings, they finish in last place out of the Middle Eastern civs.
Incidentally, could somebody please tell me once and for all why the Israel civball is a cuboid?
