Ok maybe at the very begining of the game, but the Sicilians & slightly later the Genoans, always sail across the med & take the Moorish coastal cities which the Moors seem completely unable to defend as they're fighting the Iberians.
The Moors end up in a vice with inevitable results, i actually end up having to keep them alive.
But Moors rarely steamroll everyone and when they do it is usually because Catholics attacked each other opposite of what happened in history. Perhaps Catholic Iberian factions should start with higher relations but within MTW2 engine its difficult to make Moors less united and Iberians more when its 1 vs 3 factions. The taifas of the Moors were as often allying with nearby Christians as nearby Moors and versa. Only the constant support of the Pope and France allowed Iberians to withstand Moors which rarely happens in game. I think Moors should probably be a higher priority for Crusades and initial Iberian/Papal/French relations should all be quite high. Overtime they will fall but it should keep Moors from steamrolling in those few cases they get an early advantage so quickly.

I'm wondering if some people even read his post... He was saying that the AI when controlling the Moors, dominate Spain.
And this is 100% true, they usually eat away at Portugal and the rest of the Spanish countries...
Multiplayer freak!-LOVES Empire Total War. <- Me when Total war came out
If you play a faction far from the area typically Moors win due to auto calcs and the fact that they're simply much more wealthy, and that the Spanish factions themself tend to fight amongst themself as well . But actual unit wise the Moors in pure 6.4 is pretty damn crappy and the Spanish factions damn good
1180, an unprecedented period of peace and prosperity in East Asia, it's technology and wealth is the envy of the world. But soon conflict will engulf the entire region with great consequences and lasting effects for centuries to come, not just for this region, but the entire known world, when one man, one people, unites.....
Moors overpowered? Umm history isn't fair and whats happening in Iberia in 6.4 is pretty accurate as far as what actually happened. Both sides gained and took ground, and the Christians also roflstomp the Moors much of time, much to my disappointment when I made it to Iberia as Sicily after defeating the Moors in N. Africa.
