what is the most effective way of EXTERMINATING these annoying people? im the julii rite now and sadly pre marius...i should get a reform soon. my carthage is huge! :] uhmm ok back to the topic...i know elephants arent really effective just because all germanic armies ive encountered had at least 2 spearmen and i elephants just fells after just charging at these spearmen. I mean they didn't even break the line. my cavalry had no time to flank the spearmen because they had like a million berzerkers and warlords...i mean seriously. (note that this was two full stacks and another half stack with faction leader) well...i lost because it was like 2500 to 500!!! help

Use fire at will for hastati and principes. Make sure to they use all their pila before engaging spearmen. If necessary, retreat them slighty. Have tons of archers, they are especially effective against berserkers.

Mass cavalry to take out enemy horsemen and archers. Where possible, avoid hand-to-hand combat with berserkers. Actually, avoid it at all costs.

Good Luck

I hope that you mean the German AI in the game, because if you mean the Germans are annoying then you will have me to deal with! (JK!)


The great part is that Scab is apparently among such people. Yes. Greek Scab. My minion. -Stormraider

Me too, even though I'm not German, I have many friends who are.

When it comes to wreaking havoc on the Germanic tribes, you can use something very useful called firepower. Get some artillery and lots of nice Roman archers. These will enable to cut down the lightly armoured Germans with ease.


Surrender!
You mean you wish to surrender to me? Very well, I accept!
