    Re: Reforms

    For the first time, I'm playing longer campaigns (150+ turns), and I found that the reforms are actually a necessity, not just to fight Roman legions but the reformed troops of other factions. Just...

    Re: [Submod] Age of Hellenism for DEI

    I think a few factors contributed to the unlikely turn of events in my campaign. Carthage was fighting both Syracuse and Rome. The latter probably had several large navies and completely cleared the...

    100 turns in, and some interesting developments have happened. The Seleucids have actually been completely destroyed, because they were fighting the Galatians, Egypt, and Parthia all at the same...

    Re: Is Rome underpowered?

    Rome is by far the strongest faction imo. Every single campaign I've played since 1.2, they've always unified Italy and expanded into Gaul, Africa, and Greece. In fact, one of the reasons why I...

    Re: [SUBMOD] The Hellenic League

    Was the roster competitive with the other major powers (Seleucids, Romans, Galatians, etc) before you hit the Thorax reforms? It seems like a sword/melee heavy faction like the Galatians and...

  8. Re: Need help with old greek naming of armies

    Ah, you too! Imperator Rome got me into this. Yeah I name them after the province/region to which they are assigned, like Stratia II Sikela, Stratia I Lucania, etc (maybe Stratos is more appropriate).
