    However on BI, celts, Alemmani, Burgandi and Lombarbi will NEVER lose a game on no rules against any other faction.

    Try 2 units of night raiders and 4 bezerkers against 8 roman infantry, the romans will run away in seconds. Bezerkers simply dominate BI and do not lose a 1 vs 1 melee to any other unit, and scare the rest of the enemy senseless. A good celtic army wont lose on these rules I can be sure

    Have fun all.

    Celts FTW!!!!
    Good tips!

    So basically what you're saying is: the Celts are the Egyptians of BI?

    Do you think the Huns are a good counter to them?

    (I'll try to cut down on the number of Berserkers in my Burgundian army unless I'm fighting against another Berserker faction)

    Is it an Installshield error?

    Or something to do with the game?

    @Prince, celts are better than Burgandii because they have cheap slingers which you can spam, Burgs archers cost about 500 which is too much.

    Hi Colo,
    When the actual loading sequence is happening, the blue bar gets a fifth of the way across the load bar and then freezes. After a few minutes it comes back with an error message and will not go further.

    Thanks, from a miserable

    Huns or any HA faction will destroy the Celts, with their berzerkers and shieldless Gallowglasses. Berzerkers one weakness is arrows.

    Colossus,
    What kind of upgrades are you giving the Berserkers?

    Since I don't have a human opponent for BI, this might be a crappy test. But I used 4 Comitanses (gold attack) against 4 Lombard Berserkers (gold attack). Every time I fought them, it wasn't even close. The javelins that the Comitanses discharged beforehand decimated the Lombard Berserkers. And when it came time for swordplay, my soldiers would swamp the remaining berserkers with huge numbers (since the 'serks only start off with 32 men on "Large" unit scale).

    Before i tried to get the patch, i went back on Rome for a bit and could not join any games !!!! I tried to install patch 1. 5, but still didnt work. Had brilliant idea to uninstall BI and RTW and reload....but now it wont load. Says there is an error. Reboot, retry....error....repeat...error. OMG, is this the end !!! Very worried, any ideas anyone ?

    thanks, from an anxious, and worried.

    After you un-install R:TW, can you see if your "The Creative Assembly" folder was deleted or not? The folder might be called something else depending on when you bought the game. If the folder's still there, try deleting that. Then re-start your computer, and then re-install R:TW/BI.

    Hi Prince,

    ive got a 'cyclic' error message which means (after googling) that my CD is damaged. Im out of action until i get a new one, wont be before Sunday though, pity i was looking forward to playing BI. Does anyone play it online ? Is it as popular as RTW online ?

    Almost nobody plays it online. I've only played BI once online (in a FFA) - and I've had this game since last December.

    R:TW is far superior, but I wanted to try something different. When will you get another copy?

    That really sucks about your CD.

    Just curious - you're not trying to install 1.6 for RTW, right? 1.6 is only for BI. Sorry, just wondering.

    I hope all is well by tomorrow.
