Hey everyone. Keeping in tradition of the past couple of releases, I'll compile here any tips and hints that I gather from around the internet, chatting with friends over Stream, and from my own gaming.
Please feel free to ask specific questions and I'll answer them if I can or someone else from this great community will.
The following is based on playing a single Roman campaign (100 turns so far) on Normal Difficulty, and an Egyptian campaign (20 turns so far) also on Normal Difficulty. Please correct me if my observations are incorrect.
I will be updating a lot in the next week. So any specific questions will help me in deciding what to include. The size and content will be determined by interest and amount of questions
If anyone has any tips and hints, please post them and I'll include them in the guide under the proper section and give you the credit. Consider this a compilation more than a pure guide by myself.
