    Re: Most dumb people of Antiquity ?

    I was going to add Marcian to the list, considering that he refused to help out the western half of the empire when it was needed the most. By the time Leo I reversed his policies, it was too late to...
  2. [Released] Re: Custom Battle Unit and Faction unlocker V1.2

    Does this mod work on the latest version of the game? Quite an old mod it is, can anyone confirm if it works now?
  3. Re: China bans Islamic veil in Xinjiang city Urumqi

    Well, what happened to Rome after so many emperors banned Christianity. In the end it gained more favour from the people. Not comparing it to China, but I find it weird how after over 15 centuries of...
  4. Re: Terrorists attack school in Pakistan, killing 100 children

    Man, just saw this news on TV. A heart saddening thing. Death toll is now 141 people which consists of 9 adults, and minus all those students ones still heavily injured and fighting for their lives...
  5. Re: An analysis of mass and its role in Rome 1 and Rome 2

    I think it would be best if they just scrap Warscape engine. It doesn't model mass and weight in units that RTW had.

    1v1 duels are fun to watch for a while, but only if they don't impact the...
  6. Re: Losing a huge army to a foreign princess / I hate this game now

    I once had a general whom I marched from western France to aid my allies (and get some land :P) in Russia, against the Mongols.

    By the time he arrived he became disloyal. He rebelled just when I...
  7. Are there numericals after faction leader names?

    Simple question.

    Suppose I am playing as England. I get a king named George. He lives and reigns and dies like every other human. A few generations of kings pass away. After some time my current...
  8. Re: how many of you would love to see this game remastered?

    I'd like to see this game remade or gain a great sequel like Shogun 1 did. But NO WAY IN HECK I'd want it to be done in that :wub: engine named Warscape.

    Shogun II somehow passed, but that engine...
  9. Re: Unit reveal: Theban Hippeus (Boiotian League)

    Just one point to add, guys. I looked closely at the screenshots on the wiki, and it seems that the cavalryman shown here is the unit commander (or the general if you will), and the actual soldiers...

    A Peloponnesian Wars DLC?!

    My God, for the first time since pre-ordering Rome II I am excited for a DLC, even if I hate hyping myself. Definitely going to buy this. :D

    Still, I worry about the...

    Re: To CA: Dont forget Aksum

    Axum is important enough in my opinion to be playable. They were rich, and stayed as both a loyal ally to the Roman Empire and a potential threat that could engulf Egypt if provoked, and the rest of...
  15. Re: Attila and Rome II Mini-survey - now live

    Well, I think they should've added those features to Rome II. Or better still, made a better engine and thrown that :wub: abomination named Warscape into the gutter, except when they needed to create...

    I'd say, starting playing your game right with Darthmod on, and then saying that you struggled to enjoy the game, is a really bad move. Mods should only be played when you have some experience in the...

  20. Re: I hope we will be able to return to 1v1 battles in the campagin again

    I think they should also remove the ridiculously giant cities from Rome II. They cover more than 40% of the area in a province, something that even modern cities fail to do (unless it is Tokyo/Kanto...

    I hope at least some form of diplomacy is available to be done with the Huns, or else it would make a pathetic ahistorical game.
