D r a z e
File Details
Game Version: Rome: Total War
Number of Players: 2

# of Denarii: 10000
kingjohn - Numidia
Augustan - SPQR (me)

Numidia is a real pain when in the hands of the right player...so much ranged infantry, with Legion-copies and Elephants to support them...however, if you aren't the 'right player', don't choose Numidia or else you'll end up like this guy.

When I saw the guy had chosen Numidia, I realized that he was probably going to use Elephants, and since Numidia has such a small selection of heavy-infantry and spearmen, I just used Archer Auxilia and Pret. Cav...call me a spamming noob all you want, but as long as I win, I don't care.

Anyway, on to the battle...When it started he had his entire army in the woods, except 1 Elephant and his general. I have my archers in lose-formation at the top of a hill, with 4 units of cavalry on either side. He doesn't send the rest of his army out of hiding until around frame 350k, so it's pretty borig up to that point...He takes a long time to deploy so fast-forward through that, but the actual battle is less than 5 minutes long.

In the end he only kills around 30 of my men, the rest of the casualties are from friendly-fire...
