Total War: Rome II Let’s Play RedStarRocket91 and I are proud to present the first forum Let’s play in Rome II of the Total War series. For those of you who do not know about the game, it is a turn-based strategy game set in the early Roman times, soon after the death of Alexander the Great. The goal the games is to have your faction become the most powerful empire/republic and crush your opponents through war and diplomacy. With the release of the last major update a few weeks ago, we believe this to be a great time to begin a Let’s Play for Rome II. We plan to play a coop campaign, in which the forums will have a say on how we accomplish our goals. This means you guys will decide our enemies, our allies, and even our strategies. These decisions will have greater consequences as the game progresses, especially when an early decision turns out to be the worst possible. Although we will ask for specific advice, feel free to give your thoughts as the campaign progresses. The first choice we give the forums is the factions which Red and I will play as. Each set of factions has an overarching goal we plan to achieve, but that doesn’t mean we may get dragged into side wars or other theaters of conquest. We may even give these options to you guys if you demand it. Anyways, the factions: The first pair is the Kingdom of Epirus and the Greek colony of Syracuse. Rome has just pushed Epirus out of the Italian Peninsula, and marches south to Sicily, despite the defensive alliance they have with Syracuse. Epirus is losing a war in Greece, and Syracuse is wary of Carthaginian power. Will the Greeks be able to halt the Roman advance and extinguish this upstart republic? If so, where will they go next? Syracuse is a traditional Greek state, fielding armies of hoplites and light cavalry. Being a Greek Colony on Sicily, it also can field a strong navy. Epirus has always had to fight for land, both in Greece and Italy. Epirus fields a diverse Greek army of pikes, hoplites, and heavier cavalry. The second pair consists of the Spanish tribes of the Lusitani and the Arevaci. Although normally content to fight amongst themselves the tribes now face both Carthage and the new Roman Republic, who wish to expand their grasp into the Iberian Peninsula. Once they unify Spain, they will need to fight off these foreign powers. If possible, they plan to sack the four great cities of the world: Rome, Carthage, Athens, and Alexandria. Both the Lusitani and Arevaci field armies of swordsmen and medium cavalry with the support of slingers. The Lusitani field stronger infantry, while the Arevaci field the stronger cavalry. The Arevaci are well liked, while the Lusitani are renowned savages. The final pair is the Greek powerhouses of Macedon and Sparta. The Kingdom of Macedon, one of the four kingdoms set up after Alexander the Great’s death, must compete with the other Successor Kingdoms for power. Sparta has resumed its warring with other Greek States, but wishes to expand its power like never before. Will they be able to work together, and reforge the empire of Alexander? Sparta fields a strong hoplite army and some of the most renowned fighters even known. Macedon uses the power of pikes with heavy cavalry to route any army it faces. Will this be enough to bring the other Greek states to heel as well as the East? We leave this choice to you guys. Please pick one faction, and who you would like to play each specific faction. I will note that a majority of the footage will be from my perspective, so if there is a faction you want to see more of than the other, let us know. If you want more information on any of these factions, please visit the official Faction List: http://wiki.totalwar.com/w/Factions Should this go well, Red and I will hopefully expand future Let’s plays to other factions and the sub-campaigns. Additionally, Let’s Plays for other games will surely follow if this is successful. We hope you all enjoy this, and make sure to watch for this on the forums as well as subscribe to the forum Youtube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/343iCommunity) so you don’t miss anything! Make sure to check out the announcement video on the channel below! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MCu5HCnSgE
Empire of the Forum Join me as we shall take over the ancient known world! Recently, I have been playing a considerable amount of Certain Affinity's "Rome 2: Total War." For those of you who do not know about the game, it is a turn-based strategy game set in Roman times, soon after Alexander the Great's death. The goal is to have your faction become the most powerful empire/republic, and crush your opponents through war and diplomacy. With the recent release of some major DLC, I felt this would be a perfect time to share this game with the rest of you. So, what is all of this about a "Forum Empire?" I hope that together as a forum we can start a Let's Play, hosted by me and possibly another forum member. I would be able to broadcast our time using Twitch, and edit and submit the videos for the forum Youtube Channel, creating either a complete play-through, or just highlights of our time playing. Here is where the community will come in: all of the important decisions will be left up to the forum to decide. Do we wage a naval war on Carthage, or land armies to sack Rome? Do we form a Celtic confederation, or subjugate them all? You need to know nothing about the game to participate. Just tell me what I should do next. I will try to accomplish as many of the decisions as possible, even if they are hard or outright crazy strategy-wise.If you really have no clue about what I should do, just tell me to wipe out another faction, or make an alliance if possible! So our first important decisions: 1. Do you want two people playing together, or just myself? If so, Who is wiling to join me? 2. What factions do we play as? (List below) Voting has ended for round 1, proceed to Round 2 voting below.
