  1. I didn't mean to be disrespectful although holding the "known world" (excluding india and bactria) is more a logistic feat than a military one. But then again I'm a self admitted philhellene so who am I to judge. I just think than conjuring waves after waves of levies is a roman hack and that overshadows most tactical brilliance on their part
  2. Aahaha! C'mon calling the siege towers in game "siege" is a bit far fetched. If soldiers do the job better or at least at the same level as a ram then rams, stone throwers and the like will see a lot lesss play.
  3. Well i think that despite your good intensions, you have a lot of "ifs" in there.
  4. I'll contest your statement on the greaves thing as to my knowledge this feature was characteristic of the italian peoples.
  5. Nope they were worn on the right side because the geometry of the scutum would interfere with the drawing of the sword. Well thats the common explanation but it could a fashion thing, like wearing the left greave only.
  6. Not that. Citizens of syracuse were never, acording to ancient sources, employed as anything other than heavy infantry and cavalry. The native Sicel and siculian tribes however did.
  7. Although historically these eastern armies were very " anoying" to fight, and in game these factions would be doubly so, not to mention that they would be a one trick poney, see AOE 3 DE Lakota Confederation.
  8. Actually only the mainland greeks and the latter sucessor armies were cavalry deficient as we have written evidence that the greeks from magna graecia( italiotes and siceliotes) had bigger cavalry cores and these were already used in shock tactics as early as the early classical era, before the rise of the macedonian kingdom.
