    Game is fucking brilliant and magnificent, can't stop playing .
    Leave your bad comments aside and try to play and have fun.
    It's like mix of Amiga Centurion with Total War and Crusader Kings plus Civilization and some EU.
    So for fuck sake, fuck off from all Paradox great strategy games as they are just instant classic and enjoy new title in their portfolio.

    Imperator is great BIGGUS DICKUS game worth of every penny and every minute of Yor time. Play and praise history!

    Agenda acknowledged, but unless you picked only one type of FTL, at the start, the game balance was non-existent and that's probably why they chose to simplify it.

    Warp was pathetic and jumpgates either gave a tremendous advantage or a tremendous disadvantage, depending on the situation.

    Still, the ridiculous thing about that post is that IR is BROKEN and needs to be patched.

    Life of Brian mod when? I'm already triggered by seeing the use of the word "lead" instead of "led"

    protip non-Anglo fags, THE PAST PARTICIPLE OF "TO LEAD" is "LED"

    On a totally unrelated note, field of glory II is discounted on gog

    You know, just in case someone might have been interested in a competently made strategy game in an ancient setting (especially as it can serve as battle engine for the next AGEod grand strategy title).

    So I clicked on the profile of the guy that defended the Romans being blacked and who also authored the We Wuz Kangz mod to make Egyptians black.

    Turns out he is actually some kind of fedora, fat white guy with a fetish for African culture.

    He likes to write about "sexy African women" and draws dinosaurs.

    caution, high sanity loss:

    This is the face of one of the guys who thinks Paradox's Romans look just fine. Just saying.

    I suppose it somehow all makes sense if that's your sexual fetish.

    When I clicked the spoiler I imagined him looking like Linkara. I'm glad I wasn't disappointed.

    Watching people playing this game. "right we've gotten past all the annoying shit now, we're getting to the point where I can take on Rome" *game suddenly ends*
    Game is absolute shit. I'm actually shocked at how little scope this title had. Even the original EU:Rome could still simulate the later Roman empire- well I mean by using the Timestamps, I'm pretty certain its almost impossible with the start timestamp. This game can't you'd be lucky to even take Gaul by the date end.

    Just one more decline with Paradox getting rid of alternate start dates, I always enjoyed having different starts.

    Uh what? I've been reading about the opposite problem, where it's so easy to mana your way to superquick conquest

    Yeah if anything I suspect the short duration of the game came about when they realized their mechanics saw players take over the entire map regularly if it lasted more than 200~ years.

    Tbh I think its because people are scared of aggressive expansion. I reckon once they figure out what the limits are on it, you'll see world conquests becoming much faster, at this stage I keep seeing people getting stuck in civil wars because they expanded too fast and have to keep doing internal housekeeping. The Civil War and Rebellion mechanics are the worst and so you see a lot of holding back because of how bad these mechanics are, people are trying to avoid them so their expansion is slow.

    Mana itself isn't the problem when it comes to conquering shit, you can just no-CB truce break your way through your neighbors, at least until you encounter foreign culture pops. Stability barely matters.

    Either there's more than one fat nerdy KANGZ enthusiast or I heard about that guy somewhere else in the context of how awful the TV Tropes community is. Something about a fat nerd who clearly has a fetish for black warrior women but hides it behind "I'M JUST INTERESTED IN AFRICAN HISTORY" rhetoric.

    10 years old and already bald. This kid has seen some shit.

    Anyway, game is better than EU: Rome and is more playable than day 1 HoI 3. Some of the mechanics don't make any sense, such as being unable to march through foreign land if the nation refuses to grant you access. In reality, ancient generals had the option of making a hostile march through "neutral" territory if necessary.

    I was in an alliance with Sparta and they went to war with Epidauros, but I couldn't walk over there because.... a couple of tiny city states refused to grant me permission to walk across their minuscule territory. Their refusal does not grant you a CB, either, so I couldn't do anything without either bribing them to get the relationship high enough for approval, or pay to fabricate a claim (what does this even mean) or take a -2 stability hit and declare war. Or build a massive navy to transport my army by sea.

    Speaking of navies, it appears that if a unit becomes loyal you can't detach it from the general... so if you need to break your army up into pieces to transport it by sea, how are you supposed to do that?

    Colonization is fucking hilarious. You can create a migrant horde, walk it around the empty places of the map, suck up all pops from those provinces, instantly convert and assimilate them with the mana you can't really use anyway as a low-tier tribe and then settle them somewhere - boom, instant 30+ pop city.
