    Default Which campaigns have you played?

    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.

    I only put down the ones I really played, but I've done a couple turns on nearly all of them.

    Expand your borders, a mod based on XGM 5.

    Greek City States is my favourite, but I enjoy Pergamom as well!

    There are some that I haven't played much, but I've played at least the first 30 turns on all of them. The ones I play most are the GCS (main campaign), the Seleucids, and the Ptolemies. The ones I play the least are the Barbarians.

    Germans and Thracians can be a lot of fun as a campaign, especially as they have interesting challenges when they face civilized factions.

    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.

    Default Re: Which campaigns have you played?

    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.

    I would really like to see a Roman Civil War Provincial Campaign (or more than one ) also a Provincial Campaign based around the Eastern Kingdoms - perhaps with the player in charge of Nabatea and Axum , or Bithynia and Colchis, or just Mauryans or just Numidia.

    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

    Default Re: Which campaigns have you played?

    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.

    Go to the provincial campaigns.

    Seleucid Empire all the way!!!One of the most difficult campaigns in XGM both in early and late game!Constant wars,everyone against you!Total experience for the hardcore gamer!I used to play GCS a lot but now i found them extremely easy once you control the Balkans.The same goes for Macedon.Bactria is a very challenging campaign but i dislike the fact that you can recruit the same persian like cavalry all the way to the Aegean coast!I would like to play the Ptolemaic Empire more but they are not my favorite because of their predominant eastern culture.How about "hellenizing" them a bit more or at least make their cities western like?

    I would like to see a provincial campaign for the Maurya Empire (what would have happened if Ashoka had looked west instead of east?) although I could see it having many of the same problems as the Seleucids in vanilla RTW, with only a small part of the empire's provinces located on the map...

    Default Re: Which campaigns have you played?

    I've played a lot of them, not many to the victory screens, but a few turns with every faction at least. I played the GCS, Maks, Syracuse, Carthage, Thrace, Pontus and have had 2-3 campaigns at least with Gauls, Germania, and Iberia (substantial ones). Lately I've been playing the Maks and Pontus, but Baktria might get a look... Although I've finally got around to downloading DTW a couple of weeks ago and have a great Attalid campaign going, so it may wait until that's over.

    For some reason I keep forgetting about the provincials. I've been meaning to play them since they've came to be. But, I play GCS the most on this mod I think. I also enjoy Macedon and Thrace. If I want a hardcore challenge I'll go for Bactria. And sometimes it's nice to come back home to Rome. I enjoy fighting all the other factions rather than playing them.

    As for new campaigns, I don't have any in mind and I can't see any need for new ones. Although, I would be kind of fun to have something of an annual starting condition fix up. Like once a year or so make the starting conditions a little different just for a refresh. I find myself using the same strategy to lure the Macs to their own demise over and over again.

    Default Re: Which campaigns have you played?

    I've played like a turn or two from each but I have never finished any of them, although I have played Parthia, Macedon and Baktria the most, I'm currently playing with the Germans.

    I actually have only played Rome once in XGM, and only until I captured all of Italy (= just a few turns, really). The roster just doesn't excite me, I prefer EB's.
