Now I think a wild-card faction that levies a whole bunch of armies once or twice per game and comes storming into your territory is fun and challenging, and I had a lot of fun with it the first couple of times it happened. But then it kept happening...over, and over, and over, and over.
About every 20 turns the huns show up with 6 full stack armies on top of each other. I have literally done nothing but fight the entire hunnic faction, wipe them off the ******g map, only to have them return 2 or 3 turns later as the number 1 or 2 power ranked faction where they make a beeline for the same place in my territory. Here's what I find every few years:
And the supremely frustrating thing of it is, I have to try and win against 40 horse archers and 10 large onagers with only, what's the player max, 40? units. Obviously this campaign is no longer fun as it consists of endlessly grinding down huns. I mean I'm ostrogoths and I settled on the Illyrian coast and I've only managed to conquer the Greek peninsula and thracia in 50 years, it's ridiculous. Has anyone else had this mind-numbing experience? I was super into Attila when it first came out but a good 20 hours is essentially down the drain right now with this campaign being essentially worthless and broken.
