Ok, I've loved this mod and it's continuous development and played it for years now. Having recently downloaded this version, I wish to ask only a few questions. Rome has very few units after the Marian Reforms. No more slingers or spears. I hoped this might've changed. Is there changes worth updating in version 7?
Also, main question. Playing as Pontus, my Pezoi phalanx units have proven a nightmare to use versus enemy phalanxes of poor and high quality. Even persian phalanx units tend to defeat my phalanx, despite me using the phalan properly and on elevated ground when possible. Selecuid phalanxes are nearly impossible to beat, even the weaker ones with similair stats to mine kill my units far too quickly. I have used the "back" button to reset my men when they wander, but to no avail. Unless I hold a tight space in a town my units have little success. Even the egyptian Pezoi seems elite compared to mine, even when my more experienced unit has higher stats? Any advice, because to win I'm needing 2-1 phalanx and cav to strike the rear. Sometimes I can't provide these numbers.
I am having success overall, though, on V-hard/V-hard.
