  5. Re: What difficulty (if any) is recommended for this mod?

    I understood. But if bonuses and penalties AI don't change, then there must be some. So my question remains : will there be a setting where the AI has not bonuses/penalties ?
  6. Re: What difficulty (if any) is recommended for this mod?

    Will there be a level where the AI gets no bonuses or penalties in the future ?

    There was far more troops involved in this campaign. But for some reason a lot of people think a single battle was fought and that's it.
  22. Poll: Re: Is it fair to compare modded Rome 1 to unmodded Rome 2?

    Indeed. Funny how some people don't have any problems to compare R2 to RTW modded or not as long as the comparison is to R2 advantage.

  23. Poll: Re: Is it fair to compare modded Rome 1 to unmodded Rome 2?

  26. Re: Why some people still say that Rome 2 total war is a bad game?

    I find the eternal debate about the name of Romans/Byzantins/Greeks during medieval times to be not only redundant but pointless. What is important in name isn't their etymology but the reality they...
  31. Re: Why some people still say that Rome 2 total war is a bad game?

    Well people are still saying R2 is a bad game because it is one.

    The very fact that people defending it argue to not compare R2 with previous TW games "because they are different" speaks of...
  32. Re: Why is Marcus Aurelius getting so popular these days?
