    Sticky: Re: Fans suggestion thread for future releases

    In 2.35 I can get 1 unit of Aswar i Nezagan from a Hypobasileia installed in Kartli, with 25 turn replenishment. Mind you, this is absolutely nothing compared to the numbers that Hayastan can throw...
  3. Re: On leather musculated cuirasse and other things.

  7. Re: [Pergamon] Pergamon Hegemony not triggering?

    Triggered the fallback, funnily enough not by myself. The Ptolemaioi seized Tarsos, which seems to have ended Seleukid presence in Anatolia.

  9. [Pergamon] Pergamon Hegemony not triggering?

    By Turn 88 (Year -251) of my Pergamon playthrough I've seized the Ionian coast, the Hellespont, Phrygia, and Galatia but the reform is still not triggering. Is it because I've refused Galatian...

    From what I gathered the Hellenic world of EBII is overwhelmingly dominated by regimes styled after (or looking to style themselves after) the Argead kingdom of Phillipos II and Alexandros Megas. KH...

    Given that the scripted raids encourage you to restore the European possessions of Phillip II Argeades, perhaps the Makedones have an advantage there.

    Why not have both? My own preferred solution is to designate one "Provincial Capital" with an Oversized Garrison, and use that for my Defensive Army.
