    Re: Making Roman Campaingn harder

    Oh, and one more thing. Play the units as blind when it comes to things they shouldn't be able to see: A unit on one flank probably won't know what's happening in the middle of the fight, and...

    Re: A feature from EB.

    I don't know much about scripting for RTW, but I'm sure that you can run a script affecting morale in addition to the built in difficulty modifiers.

    Re: RTR army size

    They might also count it with a 1:10 unit scale, meaning that one soldier on the field represents 10 soldiers. Thus losing 1500 units in one battle means you have lost 15.000 men.
