How about the berbers? I never played them, and they are quite different from the rest. I think it will be quite a challenge, sice I don't think they have a good roster. We'll at least be in a different corner of the map as where we fought with the Goths. And since we just did the goths, I think we should take a non-horde, non-steppe faction. That pretty much leaves the ERE, Sassanids and Berbers if we don't want to fight in the same part of the map again.

hmmm...the Berbers would be a challenge, and they do have some epic looking units if I remember correctly so I go with Berbers

I was going to say Celts or Berbers, so go with the latter. A challenging faction is always good for a swap.

Way to go Draak! Been waiting for the next BI Swap ever since the last one was finished.

My vote goes to the Celts. They have a very unique mix of units, and a starting position that we haven't had in recent SWAP games. I'm not really in favor of the Berbers. The Numidia SWAP we had a couple of years back that lasted 6 months is still fresh on my mind, and I'm almost afraid of another campaign in the African deserts :P

The berbers get an advantage in the fact that while it is true that their troops aren't the best quality, they don't require a lot of infrastructure and are extremely cheap. Just letting everyone know.

You can also sign up for the roster, although this doesn't share the 3 week limit.

Berbers, because of their unique style, making it different from other campaigns I played so far.
posted 23 March 2012 05:21 EDT (US)     12 / 71  
Berbers eh? Well here's hoping we don't run into too many Plumbatarii!

Bah, this is going to turn into another desert slug-fest :P. 6-month long Swap anyone?

Love to see one on the Celts!
Never played them before, so I'm pretty curious.

Two for two now, with a week to go! Don't forget to sign up on the roster too! (I'm going to assume everyone here who has voted wants to play)

I would go for the Celts.

i wish to join in a swap i understand how they work but due to some inconvince will join later but i think we should play Celts as well
posted 10 April 2012 08:31 EDT (US)     19 / 71  
I withdraw from this swap and thus also withdraw my vote.

I might rejoin later, when you lack commanders and I have spare time.

I will remain in the gallic swap for the moment though.

Celts win 4 to 2!

Since noone has explicitly signed up, I'm assuming that everyone who has voted/participated in discussion with stating otherwise is interested. As such, MPounders has been emailed. If there is no response within 3 days, I'll move down the list.

Feel free to clarify if you're actually playing or not, or sign up if you haven't yet posted!

Alright one question. How do I get the save and go about putting it in my game? And sending it
posted 12 April 2012 20:00 EDT (US)     22 / 71  
You should have an email from me explaining everything... in any case, since you're first, you need to start the save. So make sure you have unit size set to large, and start a game as the Celts!

Save it as "Celts Swap I," and when you've finished your turns, go to the Rome - Total War/saves folder, find the file and attach it to an email, which you then need to send to me.

For some reason, unlike my vsnilla RTW, my BI actually has a save folder so I can play as well

For the glory of the Celts we march!

Drakontos, I would rather not play in your BI swap. I just wanted to see the Celts being played for it.

Cool bananas! Roster changed accordingly.
