    Yeah, that's probably why you haven't seen the AI with mercenaries. Mercenaries are most useful at the start of the game since they're better than peasants usually.

    nicely done videos, the commentary is funny
    Īnfrānt nu eşti atunci cānd sāngeri,
    nici ochii cānd īn lacrimi ţi-s.
    Adevăratele īnfrāngeri,
    sunt renunţările la vis.

    Hey Everyone,

    Part 8 is now online.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLofkpjEYSg

    This video is great if you want to learn how to assault a village and not take casualties. Follow this guide, and Bucharest at early game will never give you trouble. Useful if you play as Byzantines or Hungary.

    Starting to get sizeable empire now. My movement choices get more complicated, and my enemies more difficult.

    You would have been a good othman. Try blitzing as rebels.

    rebels dont get crusades/jihads.

    It'd be the same as blitzing as byzantines, which i have done. Actually if anything, since there are so many rebel cities to begin with, it would hardly be a challenge at all. You could probably win in a couple of turns. I don't think it would be interesting.

    Especially since it spawns more than enough soldiers next to most settlements within a few turns. It's probably doable in less than 5 turns

    Well, one of the rules of this blitz was no game modifications. How are you supposed to play as rebels without modifying something?
    And, it's not really a challenge if you start off with more than 50% of the world at the start. But by all means, do the blitz with rebels in like 5 turns and claim the record. If someone sets an initial record I might give it a go and break it. otherwise it's not something that interests me.

    Im not interested in blitzing myself, never liked doing something like that, and as you said it would not be counted as i will have modded my game to play as rebels.

    How did you increase the simulation so much? I've been doing google searches for hours and can't get any info on it. I'd love to get the speed to go faster than 6x. Or were you just speeding up the video?

    On video 1 I sped up the video. You can't get it to go faster in game than 6x. I don't use speed ups for any of my other videos.

    Hey everyone,

    Another part is uploaded. I've started compacting more battles into a single part, and making each battle as short as possible, so that you only see the best and most important bits. I'm sure you don't want to watch every moment of my campaign. It'd take too much time.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bgx...0dsLIRCOj8jvP_

    I've also organised the videos into a playlist for easy access. I'll have part 11 up in a few hours too.

    Well done son. Makes me proud to be an Aussie.

    I remember years ago on the Total War.org site a great player by the name of Grog held the record for ages. That was something like 21 odd turns iirc.

    Another .org member of note was Askthepizzaguy @ 28turns.

    Edited: thought it was Askthepizzaguy who had it @ 21

    Thanks heaps!

    Yes, I knew about Grog's campaign before starting this one. It was actually his record I set out to beat. When i first saw his record I was a little stunned, as my previous record was 29 turns. However, I was determined to beat it. I never expected I would by this much though. I don't think my record is set in stone either. I think someone could come along and do it in 12. I cannot imagine it being done faster than that.

    Thanks for all your support so far.

    I'm thinking about doing a Rome Total War blitz after this. Does anyone know what the record is?
