5 battles wich I (Orion) win. I often play as the Romans, they simply are the best faction in RTW. The key to my strategy often is to have NO archers at all.
I have a rating for each game, games with 5 stars are more fun to watch (in my opinion).
If the replay contains a message saying "the player has an other version of RTW", then the battle won't be the same as when I played it.
The 1st game *****
Julii & Brutii VS. Seleucids & SPQR(me). This was a very exciting game. Although my enemies were pro's, this was one of my first great online victories. Worth watching!
The 2nd game ****
Greece VS. SPQR(me). This is an example of how you should take on a Greek phalanx in circle formation without even having archers. The phalanx in circle formation is made to be protected from attacks from all sides; so DON'T attack from all sides! Concentrate your men on 1 phalanx unit and keep them under attack until a gap appears in the tight circle. The Greek player will have no option but to break his circle formation. At that moment, urbans become superior to phalanxes. Far superior. Although the Greek player was smart (he had light cavalry to draw the pila fire) I suffered only slight losses. He would have lost his entire army if the game didn't end before that.
The 3th game ***
Britons VS. Germania(me). This guy was very bossy all the time, but it didn't save him ;) 1: As host the other guy didn't allow me to have any cavalry (so he could deploy waves of head hurlers). 2: In spite of me being the defender, he totally refused to attack. For some reason "it was my job". 3: I was only allowed to deploy 1 berserker unit. 4: When he finally descided to make a move, he ordered me to pause the game for a minute. The reason: he wanted all of his troops to attack me at the same time. But hey, no problem! This is how you DON'T attack a phalanx in circle formation.
The 4th game **
Greece & Seleucids VS. Julii & SPQR(me). Unlimited denarii, but no elephants and no artillery allowed. The Seleucid guy of course bought hordes of elephants, but at no avail.
The 5th game ****
Brutii & Julii VS. SPQR & Scipii(me). Superb game to watch, because the battle stays balanced until the very. A bloody one, too.
That's about it. I hope you like these battles, more to come soon!
