Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: Barbarian Invasion
Number of Players: 2
Player 1's Name: Black Cleitus
Player 2's Name: Myrmidon[Capt. Pompey]
# of Denarii: 15000
My cousin, who is only 15 years old is an avid lover of this game. He plays it with more dedication than even me. To this day, I have not yet beaten him and his 'invincible' Sassanid formation. But MP lobby is a brutal playground to those who are faced against a mass of human players for the first time. So, on his first day, he goes up against a seasoned clan player of the Myrmidon clan. Despite my pleas to select a better army, he chooses his favorite Sassanids. Pompey decides to go with Lombards. The stage is set.

After watching this replay, and looking at my cousin, I realized that despite all my time spent in the lobby, it was me who was the noobi and not him.

je_suis_tahmid i think the onagers made a big difference, if onagers werent there lombard wuda prolly won, also the horse archers with cantabrian circle created havoc. his calibs were amazing, changed the tide of battle twice

it was funny how one left over zerk chased down the sassanid cav and killed 5 of em b4 dying.

i think under twpl rules ur cousin would have fared differently

No doubt, TWPL rules, would have changed the outcome. But then TWPL rules favour those factions Lombards, Burgunds and Alemans. Those rules make it practically impossible to play Sassanids or Huns.

He played a few games with SPID - John, Scorpiona and Spear with TWPL format and you too. I have a battle where it was four vs four (you were on all SPID team), and his Sassanids actually destroyed your Vandals in the game, killing your general. But then for some reason his allies lost and he was swamped by John and Spear, I think. He has the battle saved, it is a fun watch also. His Sassanids are really thing to marvel, the way he uses them. I get my ass kicked if I ever picked an army so small, but he manages to hold his own, every time.

Overall, I thought it was impressive to win like this on his first day online.

By the way, thank you so much for the comment. I will get to your game as soon as I can. Your description is very tempting.
