    Re: How does the EBII community rate Pyrrhos Aikidas?

    Very good general, I'd say literally the best in the game. Over all my playthroughs I haven't ever seen any single one of mine reach as many command stars as he does, the most was 7. Not that you...

    Re: Epirus - Tactical Advice Required

    I'm not sure to this day just which of the command stats matters more, but I can confirm there's a huge diffference in morale depending on whether a general is Green or Grizzled. Also units not...

  5. Re: Young Carthaginian FMs getting wealthy pretty much as soon as they come of age. Strange?

    I think Carthage just places more emphasis on wealth, including their election system, they always just seem to have more wealthy people than other factions.

  28. Re: What are your tactics/strategies when fighting the Romans?

    You'll have to focus on cavalry. Even not taking into account considered cheap by some hammer and anvil tactics, Romans have terrible cavalry, and Donnoi Eporedoi beat theirs any day of the week.
