    Casse.

    Unique, challenging start position, awesome units (Belgae Milnaht are unstoppable at 3 XP and up!), make tons of cash if you manage them right.

    Their short swordsmen are numerous and cheap, I sacked Barbaropolis with them! Thrice! (same army, no reinforcements at all)

    Well I won't be able to compare all 'barbarian factions' since I have only played with a few.. (Too busy with Nomads, Hellenes, Karthies and other..)

    I would say:

    1. Arverni - I like the celts the best from all barbarians as they are the most developed. Why I like the Arverni more then the Aedui? Well...
    - Better colours and skins in my opinion (I prefer Gaesatae and Soldorus with Darker coloured shields - they look more terrifying).
    - I also like there battlestandard more - looks like some mythical symbol while the Aedui gather under a warthog
    - The Arverni rebelled and fought against the Romans while most of gaul simply surrendered ("there can be no peace... no peace with Romans ... there can only be WAR")

    2. Getai - wonderfull units, great opportunities, close to my home country - there an Ideal tribe to make an empire from Hellas to the North-sea and beyond

    About the others I couldn't say too much - haven't played enough as those factions...

    Yes, it is Rome. It is a joke of few people who belong to the group Romaioktonoi, I am not sure if I speak for everybody in the group, but we don't really hate Romans, we just like other factions who were their enemies more or dislike some of their gameplay or RL qualities and enjoy fighting against them. Everything Roman is called barbarian and so on. Thus Romani are one of the most popular barbarian factions as seen here. It was a little controversial issue, so let's stop here.

    1. Getai!!!!! There units are awesome, and I love not fighting other barbarians but raining hell down onto the Hellenes. It's just so satisfying. They are the only faction I enjoy fighting phalanxes with thanks to their units.


    2. Arverni. Play as a Gallic faction, and the one that stood up to Rome, not being the weak little faction that coddled Rome. Seriously, playing as Auedi really turns me off, as they were Romes strongest barbarian ally. If I'm playing a barbarian I want to raze Rome, not be its' pet.

    GETAI

    Prepare for my golden chevroned Ktistai + Tarabostes + Thracian light cavalry army!

    2nd is Macedonians. Horrible infantry, but thats okay, they can hold a long stick in front of them.
