Best of

Barbarian: Britannia

Civilised: Egypt(campaign), Carthage(multiplayer)

Rome: Scipii (great starting position: capital is secured from invasion by other roman factions, after sicily is taken, the island is a stronghold, the 3 cities there can mutually defend each other)

Egypt are widely used on MP as well, and they are good. carthage is on the other hand fairly limited.

Barbarians. I am tempted to say Gauls purely because of forrester warbands but I'll have to go with Germans as they have more than one elite unit.

Civilized nations.. Definatly Parthia just because of the Perisan horse/Cata combo. For a siege tho I'd prefere Greece tho as Spartans is the only phalanx unit that can be used succesfully as shock troops as all of the Grecco and Eastern factions have a complete lack of shock infantry.

Romans.. Kinda the same but I'd have to go with Brutii as they have the biggest potential income.

The greatest happiness is to vanquish your enemies,
to chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth,
to see those dear to them bathed in tears,
to to your bosom their wives and daughters bring.

Romans - Julii

Barbarians- Sycthians

Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

I like the Germans the best for the barbarian factions.

Eygpt for the civilized.

The Scippi for the Romans.

Armenians for multiplayer.

Brutii, the greece area is the richest area in the game.

Macedonia, same as Brutii, but they aslo have the best cavalry in the game.

I hate barbarians, I like to build my empire before invading. You just cant do that with barbarians. I like to have huge cities, and have atleast 1-2 million denari before invasion.

But Britons

Barbarians-Scythians- Scythian Horse archers and Noble cavalry rock!

Civilized-Selucids their Silver Shield guys kick ass, and they have cataphracts.

Romans-Brutii Can easily gain greece and macedon, then sail acroos to Egypt. All this equals a bottomless pit of cash.
