    this setting + few fortified settlement = mediocre title assured.

    The barbarians artillery and viking equipment promise little good.

    Re: Did Athenians adapt Macedonian phalanx?

    They probably adopted the Thureos. After all they were right in the middle of two users : the Boeotians and the Achaeans.
    So Classical Hoplites are unlikely.

  6. Re: Returning to Total War after 5 years away...

    Shogun 2 is a better game. It is cheaper too. Unless you hate the Japanese setting I recommend you it over R2.

    Do not consider R2 as a sequel of the first. If you truly loved the first then there...

    Re: I got the marian reforms in 248 BC

    You could make a "progressive" system. Like selecting 5 regions (random number) and make it so that reforms trigger when the player hold 3 of them.

    This would ensure the player does not get...

    Nope. While it is possible (but far from certain) that some pikemen used mail armor there is no evidence that full regiment used it. In addition to what Zeb77 said, there is in fact no evidence that...

    I think the issue is more about the trailer decalage with the product it is supposed to sold. Most of it involves political and character drama. Not big battles.

    Does the re-worked political system includes changes on the characters traits and ancillaries ? Like a greater limit of traits by characters who may or may not concern the potilitcal system ?
