Indeed.That was an crushing defeat of the Roman fleet, a shame that they sneaked up on you later.
Luckily Egypt have not attacked me for quite some time despite actually having a casus belli (their claims on my starting provinces) and the occasional mission to do so. Somehow I doubt it will last. As for any possible Parthia vs Egypt wars, I'd rather not see them as the most likely result would be Egypt beating up yet another country.Is there any way to get the Parthians to attack the Egyptians? Other than that, I don't know how you could deal with the Egyptians in a straight-up fight.
You fared better against the Romans (especially in the beginning) than I would've expected, based purely on the size discrepancy on the map. It's really too bad that they decided to go after you, when Macedonia makes a far more logical target. I hope this was a little AI spasm, not a harbinger of future conflicts to come. If Rome has decided they now need to beat up on you, I fear the end game will be a cycle of Rome and Egypt playing tag team to body-slam you into the ground...
I think I agree with that assessment.That went less badly than I would have expected.
730ish I think. Think it will be 727 but not entirely sure.Some fantastic results in the opening battles there, and the political map at the end highlights how well you did to escape relatively unscathed.
Egypt and Rome continue to look very intimidating on either side of you however, hopefully they will turn their attention to each other. IF Rome would only expand in the Balkans and get a land border, you could get yourself a very useful ally.
It's been years since I played, when does a game of Rome finish?
