    Taksashila now has a data scientist game mechanic in the form of a second military reforms. Should you fight 100 battles against each faction, collecting gobs of battlefield data, the Taksashilan data scientists will analyze them to create the ultimate unit: Sphendonatai Cataphracts except they sling Cataphract Elephants at the enemy instead of stones.

    However, if used on the zipper day, also bartix and the faction that replaces armenia can recruit the Sphendonetai Elefantoi in the rivers of Paropamisadai.
    If you want to play a historical mod in the medieval setting the best are:
    the Stainless Steel Historical Improvement Project,
    and the Broken Crescent + Buff and Shine.
    ........................................................................................................................................
    Reviews of the mods (all made in 2018): SSHIP, Wrath of the Norsemen, Broken Crescent.
    Pros and cons of having merchants in an M2TW mod. Arguments against the forts in M2TW.
    Home rules for playing a game without exploiting the M2TW engine deficiencies.
    Thrones of Britannia: review, opinion on the battles, ideas for modding. No good mod yet, alas!
    Dominant strategy in Rome 2 TW and Attila TW: “Sniping groups of armies”. Still there, alas!

    Two slings are better than one!

    I was thinking of the elite dual shooting slingers equipped with maille and dual-wielding thureos shields for melee. Their shield-bash attacks being AP because of the blunt concussive force!

    Furthermore, I believe that Rome must be destroyed.

    I've got an idea how to make Pahlava more fun and interesting:

    Every time when the FL dies all FMs from the same generation with the FH go Eleutheroi and go after the FH. The last man standing is made the new FL. Also, the new FL gets +1 Authority for each competitor removed.

    'member those population growth control buildings from Roma Surrectum II? How they would absolutely break population management by making historical lack of manpower absolutely meaningless? To replicate that in EBII, add a "Supersoldier Cloning Facility" building that acts as an exponential population multiplier. The converse is the "Condom Distribution Program" building, which drops the Total Fertility Rate so low that the population takes a nosedive. Now the Averni player can easily max out development of every nearby settlement before the Riders Reform while the Carthaginian Player can reduce Qart-Hadast to two gas stations and a house in no time.

    Faction in control of Syracousai can build an advanced weapon research facility allowing them to construct steam cannons and solar laser artillery. Recruitable in this one city. Later it can be upgraded for building clockwork mecha and oar-powered gunships.
