A couple of fairly enjoyable games. If you watch one of these, you may not need to watch the other as they are very similar. Both Seleucid players went with similar army builds and Macehead stuck with his for both as well.

I felt this replay was worth noting on for a few reasons. The first being the frequency at which Spain is often bashed on the boards and by online players. Although there are valid arguments, this replay provides a nice counterexample to show what Spain can be capable of. A lot of players like to rave about the powerhouse that Seleucid is, and in these games Macehead was able to shut down those shock and awe units.

::The Rating::
The games were both pretty quick and flow along perfectly fine. If not for some sub-par play on the side of Seleucid, I would probably have warranted a rating of 4.

Additional Comments:
If an opponent is not smart enough to handle his troops together he will loose against a good player no matter which faction the good player has chosen. Cav. attack and no support of inv. you loose.
