Me and my coop-partner used to only play legendary in head to head, but we found the game to become too tedious, slow and frustrating. So we now only play very hard.
Anyways, I wanted to try something new. Mainly Epirus. However Epirus is by far one of the hardest starting factions. I consider myself a fairly good Rome 2 player but ****.... Epirus starting area is BRUTAL.
I need Epirus advice, but NOT advice from turn 25+. Once the start is secured I wont have problems. I only need advice for early/starting-game decision making and advice.
1: Best first-target for expansion?
2: Top "Do not!" and "Do!"'s of Epirus?
3: Best diplomatic and trade options?
4: Recommended starting research and construction?
5: Any general advice to make Epirus survivable
Thanks for any help!
