      Hello everyone, and welcome to my campaign play through as Macedon. I will be posting updates here until Rome II is released. Please discuss the campaign in this thread

      Macedon is rated as a hard faction to play. The campaign is on the normal difficulty setting. Click on the images for larger resolution where avaiable.

      The game begins in 272 BC, so let’s take a look at what I have.


      Here is Pella, my capital, and the army of my faction leader Antigonos Gonatas.

      The other region Macedon starts with is Pulpudeva, along with the second army under Kosmas. I also have a fleet which is led by Peucestas.

      A decent starting position, but I need to take a look at the diplomatic situation.


      Quite a few nations nearby, from the Thracian Odryssian Kingdom to the Greek states of Athens and Sparta.


      Athens is my client state and Sparta are my defensive allies. I’m at war with Tylis which looks to be a good first target for expansion.

      Time for some construction. Pella is expanded with the City Centre line of buildings. Pulpudeva gets a barracks so I can recruit decent units there and at Pella. I want to turn them into military centres, I will focus conquered regions on agriculture, industry and culture buildings.


      I also start researching my first tech, the starting one on the military line. I will go up the military line for a couple of techs until the second tier buildings are unlocked and will then switch to the civil line.

      Each faction comes with traits that affect how the campaign plays, let’s take a look at Macedon’s.



      Good bonuses, but the diplomatic penalty with other Hellenic factions could have a big effect as the campaign goes on.

      Now to get on with the business of strengthening my armies. Levy Pikemen and Javelinmen are added to the army of Antigonos. Kosmas gets some Slingers and a unit of Milita Hoplites. He will march on Antheia and I will recruit mercenaries to strengthen his force along the way.


      I also have a spy who I send south, and they spot some Epirot armies gathering.

      Time to end turn.


      Hmmm, I’m already committed to one war with Tylis, but I do want Larissa so I agree to join in the war with Epirus.

      As I’m waiting for my armies to recruit their units, I end turn again.


      My first tech is finished, and I move onto the next military one as it will give me the next level barracks needed for Pikemen and other units.

      Bolstered by some Thracian mercenaries, Kosmas lays siege to Antheia. I decide to wait before assaulting, a big mistake.

      Why was this a mistake? Because I forgot that armies in besieged port settlements do not suffer from attrition unless the port is blockaded, but the besieging army will.


      Antigonos moves south to beseige Larissa, Athenian armies providing support.

      I upgrade the City Centre chain in Pella to an Amphitheatron, a building that will give a very big boost to public order when it is finished.

      An Epirus spy is spotted by my own, and she manages to wound them.


      She levels up and I decide to improve her critical chance.

      Realising my earlier mistake with the siege of Antheia, I assault and my strong infantry give me a swift victory against the levy troops of the enemy.

      I choose to occupy the settlement. As buildings of another culture give unhappiness, I begin the process of converting the farm to my own. The others will have to wait until I have more money.


      Kosmas has levelled up so I give him the Commander skill.


      Having captured Antheia, I notice an army of Tylis in a transport fleet off the coast. I wonder what they will do next.


      Blast. Odrysia has declared war, giving me no time to consolidate my hold on Tylis.


      At the start of my next turn I am greeted with this message, looks like something has happened to one of my Generals.

      Once I’ve dealt with this another message. I don’t know who it is, but someone almost took out Antigonos. If I found out who it was they will pay.



      Floods have hit Pulpudeva, causing damage to buidlings.


      Odrysia has besieged Antheia with the Tylis army on the transport fleet blockading the port. This is not good. I dispatch my fleet to try and help out but it may not be strong enough.


      With the second military tech done I move on to the first civil one.


      During the next end turn sequence, Egypt declares war. Looks like there is not much friendliness with my fellow Hellenic nations.




      On the last turn of the siege of Larissa, Epirus sally out. The Athenian armies have moved away but have been replaced with a much stronger Spartan one. This battle should not be much of a challenge. As it is an easy fight I decide to autoresolve it.


      A good victory and I decide to enslave the captives taken.

      Larissa is mine…


      …and with it Mount Olympus!

      That is all for this part of the campaign diary. See you all next time.
      Rome II'de campaign kendini oynatacak gibi görünüyor. Genel olarak bakarsak;

      - General's bodyguard biriminin hangisi olacağını seçebiliyoruz, güzel.

      - RTW'de dünyanın yedi harikası vardı, bunda da benzer olarak wonder sistemi yapmışlar.

      - Limanı olan bir şehre saldırılınca şehirdeki askerler kayıp vermeyecekmiş ve şehir normalin 2 katı süre dayanabilecekmiş kuşatmaya. Saldıran ordu ise kayıp veriyor bu süre zarfında. Limanı bloklarsa iş değişiyor tabii.

      - Sel baskını falan var, doğal afetler çeşitlendirilmiş.

      - Generale skill veriyor, biliyorduk.

      Vs.
