  1. Re: what keeps you from getting bored on campaings?

    He means that you can't really play historically because none of your opponents do. The factions that were historically your greatest allies stop at nothing to destroy you.

  4. Re: Moving scorpions / ballistas over bridges or through gates

    Makes no sense that they can't enter a city. If I have ammo left, why can't I move in and bombard the center? Stupid. The openings are big enough; they would fit. Stupid.
  5. Re: Hands up who think cretan archers are the sex!

    Agreed. Makes up for weak Greek armies (minus hoplites). AMAZING to have in Egypt/Africa if you are a phalanx army.

    Re: When do the Romans expand?

    The scipii get in to Carthage quite fast, generally, from what I've seen. Julii usually expand fairly quick into Gaul. Brutii have it the toughest, as they have to fight Greece, so they don't usually...

    Re: In Development a "300" Feel-Mod

    Make sure you actually block the flanks on the map. If you just make steep hills, they can still be climbed, resulting in a rather short battle. Need cliffs/rocks to block them. Sounds cool though!

    Re: UNIT Size ,, check this pic out

    There are different unit sizes. For example, cavalry units have less men, while peasants and some infantry have more. Some cohort units have more than the standard number.

    Re: Cool RTW video!!

    You coordinate the music and the video really well. Like when you switch from showing the Gauls to showing the Romans, and the change in the music. Love it! Feels very epic overall.

    I recently made the switch from M2 to Rome. I think Rome is much, much better (although it has undergone more patching).
  13. Re: The three family system in vanilla Rome

    Actually many people think that too. When you think of Rome, you think red, so it makes sense. Check the "favorite faction" poll that is stickied. A lot of people say Julii for the color.
