    I've played them all at least one time. I especially like Bactria. A good mix of soldiers, nice starting position, early blitzing, far superior enemies.

    Played all expect TSE and armenia
    Ancyra campaing would be nice
    EDIT: rome campaing is (&%/, because when (or if) you defeat pyrrhus theres still full stack at tarentum, and if you lose...

    The best campaign that no one is playing much is Armenia. It's difficult, but very entertaining.

    Hippias: A civil war campaign is still on the to do list. Some of your other ideas might happen too, though I haven't figured out a tidy way to do EK campaigns yet. That's harder because there is no matching faction to take over their other regions the way there is with the Greeks, Romans, and Gauls.

    I've got a some files, including a half done descr_strat for a triumvirate civil war. I'd need to change some things, but it mostly just needs armies placed, diplomacy, etc.

    If you want a truly exciting campaign we should do the mercenary war of Carthage.

    We could use eastern kingdoms to emulate the mercenaries while Carthage could be initially limited to just the civic units to fight against its AOR.

    That would be so awesome! And then you'd have to recuperate to fight against an ever-more-powerful Roman Republic... That would be a great use of the EK.

    Only because of Hamalcar's brilliant strategical skills, otherwise things could have gone much differently...

    Greek City States (Ofcourse), Seleucid Empire, Rome.
    Also started, Macedon and Gaul campaigns but didn't get to finish them (so I passed them on vote as well)

    Still playing a Greek campaign.

    I completely agree. It does get kind of stale so that I want to simulate the first 10 years of the capaign.

    One campaign that was very fun for me and just needs a few changes to be fully playable is the Independant Greeks. It was great fun blitzing Rome with Pyrrhus right off the bat. I had to take three cities just to break even with the upkeep.

    For some reason I play the Greek City States and Macedon over and over again. I can't get over those factions. I love the changes to all of the other factions, but I don't like playing them for some reason. I enjoy fighting them too much.

    Athough I do enjoy a good Thracian and Roman campaign from time to time.

    I played (more or less) extensively just a handful of factions: Macs, Thrace, Germans, GCS, Pontus, Carthage, Rome, and Bosporan Kingdom. And, I tried almost all remaining factions, but just for a 5-10 turns only (except for Scythia and Parthia) Best experience with Macs, Thrace, and Bosporan Kingdom. Favourite factions Thrace and Macs.

    I am in the middle of a parthian campaign(illustrated in post your empires), and macedon, greek cities and rome are being played too for when i get frustrated with the horsearchers, sometimes you just need to have some heavy infantry in your life!

    I really like where there is tons of war- the parthian east has been my most satisfying campaign so far.

    I played virtually every faction in XGM from version 3 onwards, upto 5.7 haven't played in a while but I'm getting the urge to play again....the most interesting campaign was the Gauls - starting in the middle of a civil war - real nail biting stuff. Caradog the Mad - totally bonkers 10 star general conqueror of Iberia, Gaul and Germany - died age 80 leader of faction - charged head long into every battle initially because I thought he was totally rubbish as a family member due to all his negative starting traits, by the time he died he was a god.

    Fix the problem, not the blame!

    Now that's the ideal faction leader.

    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..

    Whoa my GCS campaign is in full swing I own all of Greece, Byzantium, and the Aegean coastal cities, its 273 BC and the invasion of asia minor has started. Pergamon has fallen to the Spartans and the next city north east of it is about to fall. For some reason Nicomedia has rebelled and kicked the eastern kingdoms forces out of the city, so thats another easy target.
    Next stage is Rhodes and Hallakanassus(sp?).

    Should I stick with pikemen or go total retro and just use hoplites as my anvil?
    (seeing as the Spartans are in charge and didn't use the pike until around 168 BC)

    I'd say use a few Phalangites, only good ones though, as a anvil and then a massive hammer. T
