    Dang, was about to go to sleep...

    Interesting choice to jump into wars on 2 fronts so early- was that a defensive alliance offer to join war from Sparta? I couldn't quite tell what prompted that. Also- does it give diplomatic boost to relations with Sparta that you accepted their offer to join in war vs Epirus or simply a small boost from being at war and prosecuting such a war vigorously?

    Nice to see the attrition of besiegers and ports speculation confirmed! Been waiting for some additions like this for years! Now that the mechanic is there modders can adjust to whatever they want but at least mechanic exists!

    Macedon starts with a defensive alliance with Sparta, they just asked me to join in the war.

    It varies by culture.

    The diary is in text and pictures as it allows me to get a lot more information up a lot quicker than having to upload a huge video.

    Yes, helping them against a mutual enemy and our treaties boost my relations with them.

    I'm unlikely to include pictures of battles as it allows me to show more campaign progress with each update.

    Finally we see the allies actually helping you, not just sitting there and waiting your armies to be crushed. I have one question - why the hell would egypt declare war on macedon? And I'm really happy that I'll have the chance to control the city, where I am born - Pulpudeva a.k.a Plovdiv now. Hopefully we'll see a video, instead of screenshots? However, thanks for the updated information.

    I can not see all, but as I reload (or try a different browser) I can see different pictures. Probably my computer then since there is something wrong with it, I just can't figure out what!
