Do you have any questions about modifying the game? What will you need to do what you want to? What are the best techniques? Discuss Modifications, Map Making, AI scripting and Random Map Scripting here.
Forums for decision-making on issues where a consensus can't be reached or isn't sufficient. The committees are chosen from among the official team members, but to ensure an open and transparent decision process it's publically viewable.
So here's what I believe should've happened:
Yellow uses Rome Lancer Rush against Red Sparta. Then Blue follows up with Slinger Rush. Boom! Purple Sparta will sweep with his Skiritais. Iberians aren't much of a threat until late game.
But what happened was:
Carthage provoked Sparta into attacking prematurely. Red Spartan was left happy to boom and employ his Rush. Then Iberian went for the sweep.
