    My first completed Extended Cultures campaign. I started on 2.6 I think and added features as I could.

    I though that the maximum was about 4 armies per battle........

    I just thought these numbers were impressive. But the hardest part of the battle was the lag.

    Nothing special in its own but a remarkable age indeed:

    He'll live for another 58 years at least. Once a character reaches 101, the age is counted as 1 by the engine. He'll outlive most of his sons and some of his grandchildren I bet.

    He died at the age of 108, 20 more years and the counter would have been reset to 16.

    Ah, I guess that's it. Ok, too bad.

    Same empire, much later on...



    Note that despite being huge I'm not a millionaire yet and I've been relatively cheap with armies.
    The new economy definitely works when it comes to limit elite spam.

    Long live, Antioch! A few pics of my own.

    This was quite an intense and entertaining battle, in which Greek hoplites proved their worth. In absence of cavalry, I used the general bodyguard units to hit the enemy in the rear and flanks to great effect (these small units are easily to maneuver).

    All seems in balance on the battle field so far. I like what youíve done to the SRG unit: now they are top-of-the-line hoplites and nothing more. Phalanx feels well-balanced as well. I do not have a complete picture on how missile and cavalry units perform though, but I havenít noticed anything weird so far.






    This a screenshot from another smaller-scale battle. I am glad to see DTW hoplites, as well as some EB units in XC. Overall, I like what youíve done to unit roster so far, guys.

    Well, TBH I had to revise the phalanx a bit as it became too vulnerable to the front and even light cavarly was able to pierce it.
    In the next release only kataphracts will be able to pull off such a feat and not without paying the price...

    This just seemed funny to me. In my current Seleucid game Parthia emerged in Sidon. I had an army nearby so they didn't last long. But they formed a horde and attacked Egypt with these results.

    It's an unfortunate side of the way Parthia emerges.
    In the future releases this should be less likely although still possible.

    How did you like the seleucid start BTW?

    I like the start, it's a challenge. There are a lot of things to manage right from the start. Happiness in the east, Egypt in the middle, and vulnerable cities in the west. If you play it right you can hold it all, but you always have to worry about Armenia or Pontus attacking at the wrong time.
