    So you dont know how to rush AI faction that has some units defending...

    I as Turks waited a bit for Armenia to lose strongest units taking Karaman, Selukleia and Vahka, than i killed them with bare 4 quapuluks. Than same with Most of ERE cities leaving him with Trebz, Constantinopole, Nicea(?) and Cyprus.

    I made some catapults and had enough armies to lay siege on Nicea and Constantinopole, capturing their sets without garisson script kicking in.

    Try mentioning Soomro or Sumra, however they are relatively obscure enough that people may not know who they are.

    Get assassins before strong troops. Spam them, its muche asier to kill thei Bodyguards with assassins than in combat.
    You mean to attack their generals before the actual battle. To attack them
    with the Assassins. I tried that and for some reason their bodyguards are always stronger. I lost something like 2 or 3 Assassins before I gave up.

    Also you have craptastic initial infantry
    Kypchak infantry is really .

    You mean you send 14 assassins to kill their family members one by one??
    Thats lots of commitment and training the assassin army may take a while.

    with 6 cities and some rebels to train at... Assassin with1 or no subterfuge has 56% chance vs rebel commander (not general). And he can get even 3 subterfuge for a single assassination.

    How can you say malikate of sindh is weak :hmmm: In my current ERE campaign, Malikate of Sindh are the most powerful faction on the map right after Ayybasid.

    I trained my 10 assassins and send them against the bodyguards, its gonna take me time build assassin's subterfuge though. Thats why I am sending them first against:heretics, witches, enemy diplomats, spies, assassins.
    Then I am gonna take them against the general and bodyguards.

    Imamate of Oman. Such a bad position, terrible cavalry and quite frankly boring!

    I conquered the entire map using Oman, yes they definitely have weaker units but so did the Rashidun Army compared to it's neighbours and the kingdoms they conquered.

    However I just used similar tactics to what they used and it all falls into place although it is a bit troubling when your facing a mass armoured army that the Turks or Mamluk armies can produce going head to head, if they pin you your screwed.

    i was gonna choose Abbasid as the weakest in this game but i don't know why i clicked Ayyubid,anyway for me the Abbasid is the weakest and kinda hard,at the start the Nobles will quickly send you mission to capture a settlement which in this time you only have mediocare troops guarding your current settlements as well as your prince outside the cities,20+ turns and here is Oman,Georgia,Armenia and Seljuks of Iraq waging war with you at all sides and Baghdad could not sustain enough money even if its rich because of flooding enemies.

    Hello! like someone had said:
    it's true: Oman, Sindhi and Makuria are the Weakest in BC, but those nations have to be like that....
    because historically correct they were such small\minor states.

    I voted Abbasid Caliphate: good troops but not very rich like expected. Ropmans good troops quality but lack of economy at the beginning make them difficult catch up in Wealthy (they shoud end thw game with the same money level \development level like the Egypt.
    third, Khwaresm Shah...difficult economy at the beginning, powerful neibors this is good acceptable but the Mongol Invasion, will destroy them without any chance to survive!!!!

    malikate of sindh, dangerous position and the worst units of any faction. They make the makurians look like a powerhouse in comparison... those guys really need some medium infantry and archers

    the abbasids are easy! You can turn Baghdad into the wealthiest region in the game... 20k plus easy. They have a wide array of troop types and no other faction initially threatens them.

    honorary mention goes to the khwarezmshahs, tough rebel garrisons... poor economy... unhappy regions... the ghurids... the mongols... poor unit selection (everything is expensive so garrisoning regions effectively is frustrating - they really need some cheap levy units)
