    Can I vote for more than one? I've had great campaigns as Macedon (my first XGM campaign), Saba, Carthage, and Pontus. I'd count all of those among my favorites.

    Carthage is not my favorite faction overall, but definitely my favorite faction to play! They get my Vote.

    This is SPARTA! Or the GCS.
    "So there I am, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweets shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me, and Keith Moon, and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweets shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shopowner and his son... that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business, really. But, sure enough, I got the M&Ms, and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show."

    Well this is certainly surprising. The Greek City States appear to be the early front-runner for favorite faction in the Extended Greek Mod.......

    Rome gets my vote. Although I like the whole mod better than any other all of the factions are good to play but Iberia and the Ptolomies need an overhaul of their rosters.

    Fix the problem, not the blame!

    Parthia, Thrace, Greece, Rome, Macedon, TSE, Bactria, Pontus - not always in this order.

    Lysander13 - probably the spartan royal guard and pikemen that does it
    I blame the film 300 - what a scarily funny film that was. I have the odd chuckle still about it.

    i went with the gcs but rome is really fun also, and the best thing about using rome is that you never have to fight rome.

    Hehe, I think the question, "What's your second favorite?" would have been more telling.

    The voting is nice and spread out (of course leaning heavily to GCS), I think that's a testament to XGM and the work that's been put into each faction. Such a fantastic mod, I just can't heap enough praise onto XGM.

    I'm gonna say Carthage, bacause of their awesome diverse roster, but Gaul is a close runner-up. I just love Chosen Slingers...

    Seleucids, hands down. Been trying a new install of XGM 5.6.3 and I have to say that playing as TSE is the most challenging yet rewarding TW experience for me to date. Absolutely epic, and even the smallest decision has to be weighed up carefully before being acted on as I feel I have zero margin for error (obviously I'm playing with the AI economic bonuses on and not auto-resolving any battles).
