First replay the one with OMG; that battle just shows that I won not because I am good but because the other team just sucked. One of the funniest things I saw during the battle was some guy attacking the army of my teammate who left, an army of phalanxes frontally.
The second one, Pwned, pretty much was luck/quick attack ala horde to one of the flanks; the guy had way too much onangers and archers, and when I rushed him and engaged him in melee he just didn’t have enough melee troops to resist my attack.
The third one, worst teammates ever; well one of the teammates just played ok, but the other one playing as Macedon had his whole army in the back and never helped us; finally when he decided to help, after the army of my teammate got erased; he just charged with companions against an army of roman and Greeks with Spartans; you see even though he was newbie(something everyone at least once was when playing a game first time, especially in multiplayer), the only thing I am complaining about was his selfishness and reluctance to help us, and that might have won us the day, I decided to leave after my army got attacked by the rest of the enemy army (having me eliminated one third of the enemy army, one player. Since I got myself lucky by ambushing his cavalry when he fell for the trap by attacking my general.)
Oh yea, i forgot to say; don't try that maneuver or whatever it was in the Pwned replay, I tried it several times again and my conclusion was that I just got lucky on my first try.....

That last guy (the one in the third game) was an idiot. What the heck was he thinking? Was he hoping the entire enemy army would scout en force so he could ambush them all, or what? I would have asked him, "Uh...you ARE playing the game, right?"
