You can (and should) vote for multiple campaigns if you've played more than one. Suggestions for new campaigns, or improving the existing ones are welcome.
Greek City States
I tend to avoid the barbs as well. Other than Iberia I think the only time I've tried them was to learn how they worked in order to beat them with other factions.
As for suggestions. I spent some time today playing Subrosa Florens Amazon mod and was shocked to remember that there were two more levels of city walls. I don't want them added universally but have you considered adding the 4th tier to just the garrison script towns? I seems like it could be an interesting way to add some punch to those crucial monument towns.
I have only played (still playing) GCS so far, as I'm a very slow and inconsistent player.
In my defense I only started playing Vanilla last year, and therefore haven't had much XGM time
I'm immortal! Unfortunately it wears off after 80 years..
iam confused.......why are answers avaible like pergamon,massilia or epirus????you cant play this factions because they arent in game or is a trick to play epirus,pergamom etc???
edit: ah ok i found it

THIS IS THASOS
I didn't finish a campaign yet as I'm not playing this mod that long. I am playing several campaigns at once, depending on what I fancy at the moment.
I play Macedon and it's getting rather boring since I make 20k per turn. I conquered Greece and Italy and I'm pushing into the heart of the Seleucid's Empire now.
I play with Carthage on Hard difficulty and it's going pretty well so far. Conquered Sicily and most of Iberia but I'm a bit worried since Romans and Pyrrh are allies now and I think neither likes me very well.
I started with Armenia but didn't go far with it.
I started a Bosporian kingdom yesterday and I'm finding it very challenging so far. I fear the Scyths will be upon me soon and I'm kind of busy with Armenians right now.

wheres the Rome(Rebels) faction?
No completed campaigns, but I've marked the ones that I have put a good number of turns into and which are still in active progress. As for Rome, I played the first few turns several times until I could reliably defeat Pyrrhus and left it there.
Existing campaigns - I think there is a huge amount of variety there already. my only issue with the campaign game is that of a turtle style player - I play on M/M with AI bonuses off, and role play, rather than trying to actually 'win' the game.
It would be nice if ceasefires and alliances lasted a bit longer i.e. a slower game - it's always a bit of a downer to win a couple of herioc victories in a row as e.g. Bosporans v Macedon only to know you will be quitting the game in a couple of turns as you can see 3 more Macedonian full stacks + perhaps a German or scythian army coming your way...
Still a great mod though
Rome, GCS, Armenia, Saba, Massilia and Bosphorus are campaigns I've played till I became a solid regional power, but I've only gone all the way (and beyond) with Baktria and Pergamon.
For the provincial campaigns the map is independent of the main campaign map, right? So perhaps the map can be altered slightly to make it more centered on the provincial campaign, such as Transalpine Gaul being renamed to something more neutral and less Roman-centric. Or giving them an additional starting settlement at the expense of somewhere else, so that rapid blitzing is less of a neccesity in the initial few years of the campaign.
I've played Iberia extensivly and was disapointed by the auxuilia troops they could recruit.
For the victory conditions of wipping out Carthage, Gual, Rome and Germany they only get to recruit numidian mercenaries, it would be nice if they got some low level troops from Gual and Germany possibly beserkers as well?
I feel like a noob asking this but how do you play a campaign with Pergamon in xgm? They are listed under independant greeks when I play as TSE, also I don't have Parthia listed as a playable faction when I starte a game. I though i had the latest version installed.
