Game Version: Rome: Total War 1.3
Age: BC
Year: 217
I encountered this battle While playing a Brutti campaign.

I thought it was nothing at first so i just played it but it turned out i couldnt beat it. I had this idea that i could turn this into a contest or challenge to Re invigorate the Strategy Fourm.

So here it is

Hussarknight Easy enough for me. I beat it on my first try, even tough I lost the general and had to kill the Mercenary War Elephants.

If I may offer you some advice, try to get better infantry. You should have access to post-marian legionaries, who are much stronger than eastern mercenaries. You might also want to get some roman cavalry to your army.
benniebees hey leo. im new on this site. But i want to tell you that this battle against the egyptians wasn't really hard after all.
i did it with ease!?! 32% of my men dead and 72% of their men! :) i didn't lose my general. but the elephants started to run amok but i didnt kill them because the were running through the enemy army killing a lot of them.

A nice big battle. Evenly matched in strength...but its the Egyptians and their chariots that you face in the desert. So not a foregone conclusion if you let those chariots get you.

This save worked on my V1.5 RTW yet it is a V1.3 save. Medium battle and campaign difficulty with huge unit scale.

Additional Comments:

With a few Mercenary Hoplites and Eastern Spearmen you can make an effective anti chariot wall. Benhind that your deadly archers can kill the Egyptians. Defending a hill you can weaken the enemy prior to the main infantry clash.

The Egyptian general is cavalry. Thats a relief. Take him down early with massed cavalry and elephants.

Killed 93% for the loss of 12%

Thanks for the challenge.

The campaign save is also interesting. Big fleets rule the waves.
