    Default Eb2

    This might have already been answered, and sorry for being a nag, but will EB2(modded M2; TW) with the additional 10 faction slots be released, or has there been any news about it?

    We haven't started proper development on it yet and EB1 needs to be finished first. However we shouldn't have as long to wait this time as a lot of the stuff can be brought over from EB1, but the skins etc. will have to be totally redone...

    Hope that answers your question :wink:

    Afraid not my friend. You see MTW2 battle models are made using a different kind of file than RTW battle models.(Which means one can't just "port" EB units over to MTW2...not yet anyway..... )

    BTW, I was wondering who the other EB fans would like to see fill up those ten extra faction slots. My votes go to:
    1.A Goidilic(sp?) tribe.(Would be unique and give the Casse a rival on the isles )

    2.Another Iberian tribe.

    3.Illyria.

    4.Pergamum.

    5.Another Germanic tribe.(Its too quite up there!)

    Well thats all I can think of but I'm sure the EB team will sort it out.:hmmm:

    Here are mine:

    1. Syrakousai
    2. Pergamon
    3. Another Iberian tribe (perhaps Celtiberians or some such?)
    4. Belgae (or some other Gallic tribe)
    5. Chatti (or some other German tribe)
    6. Mashiliem (or some other Numidian kingdom)
    7. Chandragupta Maurya (I realise that this would require an extension of the map - in case this is impossible, I go for Gandhara)
    8. Ardiaei (or some other Illyrian tribe)
    9. Nabataia
    10. Roman Rebels

    How about these (with their correct names of course):

    Galatia,
    Syracuse,
    Pergamum,
    Nabataea,
    Numidia,
    Chatti,
    Some british tribe
    Rebels that spawn for Romans
    Rebels that spawn for someone else (Seleukids maybe?)
    Rebels that spawn for yet another faction (Qarthadastim?)

    I agree, I'd like to see a counter-faction for the Romans, but it would be unfair if it was just them. You would need at least Seleucid and Egyptian rebel factions.

    Alright then, if we're going for counter factions (and that does, I think, seem reasonable), then here's my revised list:

    1. Syrakousai
    2. Pergamon
    3. Some other Iberian tribe (Turdetani? Celtiberi?)
    4. Belgae
    5. Some other German tribe (Chatti?)
    6. Mashiliem
    7. Nabataia
    8. Roman Rebels
    9. Ptolemaic Rebels
    10. Seleucid Rebels

    I would very much like to see the following units:
    1.Syracuse
    2.Pergamus( althought i seem to remember that this kingdom was created later than the starting date of the game)
    3.numibia(made many problems for the romans after the fall of carthage)
    4.ethiopia?
    5.massalia as an independent greek faction since it was a proeminent city in the western meditteranean sea
    6.another iberian faction
    7.maybe scotts in the latter years of the game

    All of those are legitimate factions (excepting perhaps Numidia), but the Scots? The Scotti tribe wouldn't even arrive in what is now Scotland until centuries after the game's end date. If there is going to be another faction on the British isles, it's probably going to be the Brigantes.

    What do you mean by later years? Like the decline of Rome? If so, than I think you mean the Picts. That would be a fun faction, by the way.

    please do not waste a faction slot on "rebel" factions. Make real factions please. Perhaps upping greek and anatolian factions would be nice.

    Mamertines were not "rebels" as such. At the beginning they were a loose group of Campanian mercenaries who were hired by King Agatholes of Syracuse. But when he died in 289 B.C they went on the rampage around Scily, some say as far as Gela and captured Messana. To cut a long story short they were the catalyst's of the first Punic war.

    Well,since Med 2 is a big change from RTW ,would the EB team need help? ,I volunteer myself in joining the EB team, just pm me if you need more people to work on EB2... would gladly help to create a stunning new conversion of MED2 .

    In thinking about this I could see the big difference in battle map ,rather than a an army that look like clones .... you could see the different background of the soldiers such as Hannibal's army of Carthaginian Gauls ,African and Iberians. This really creates a new sense of a mercenary army

    At this point the inability to do much with units is keeping us from making any serious effort right now. Hopefully this will change soon.
