No, but that's an interesting guess.

You guys are making better guesses, but you haven't hit the right match yet.

DING DING DING. He got it! Soccer is the man!

From Wikipedia:

"Reiters (German: Reiter, or horserider, shortened from the original “Schwarze Reiter” [literally “black riders”] called for the colour of their armour) were a type of cavalry, which appeared in the armies of Western Europe in the 16th century in place of the outmoded lance-armed knights, at the same time that cuirassiers and dragoons began to attain typological distinction from other kinds of cavalry. The reiters raised firearms to the status of primary weapons, as opposed to earlier Western European heavy cavalry which primarily relied upon mêlée weapons."

and

"Regardless of criticism by 19th and 20th century historians of the caracole tactic, Reiters could be incredibly effective when properly employed. A particular case in point is the Battle of Turnhout, where a force of Dutch ruyters under Maurice of Nassau defeated the opposing Spanish cavalry and then successfully engaged the Spanish infantry with a combination of pistol volleys and sword-in-hand charges.

The Reiters mostly consisted of Germans and served in the armies of the German states, Sweden, Poland as Polish: “rajtaria”, and elsewhere. There were also Reiter regiments in Russia between 1630s and late 17th century (see Regiments of the new order)."

Soccer and I are dominating!

Wow, that was a total guess. I was gonna try Jack and Coke as my next guess if that one wasn't right 8)

That was a great question, much props!

Now my sorry attempt to follow that:

What main aspect of the Aztec civilization (culture) is missing or not referenced in the game?
