    Poll: Re: What is your favorite Missile Infantry type?

    Usually the AI recruits lots of skirmishers and their cavalry is very agressive in battles. No only that, but all Celtic melee infantry and some other types have javelins of their own, so there are...

    Poll: Re: What is your favorite Missile Infantry type?

    For some reason I've always found slingers unapealing. But range is a priority, so they're the obvious choice. You're not going to send elite archers in melee or something, so there's no point in...

    Re: Emperor Edition: Civil War question.

    Isn't it one time only? I forced it to fire once in a campaign in order to get the bonuses higher influence gives and I don't think there was a chance of Civil War after that.
