Thread: Aedui vs. Arveni

    Default Aedui vs. Arveni

    I started Aedui game, wiped out Arveni fast, now noticed they have extra spear elite unit, and can't find one Aedui exclusive. Is there some extra unit accessible to Aedui that Arveni cannot access, please? Or possibly some other major advantage as ballance?

    Carnute Cingetos

    The Carnute Cingetos (Kin-jet-os; "Marching Ones") are the warriors of the Carnutes, 'druidic' warriors from Aulercia. Their skill is tremendous, as is their bravery. They are not plentiful, they are expensive, and of small number. However, their inspiring appearance, a product of their fine armor, with horned helmets, urges on their fellows, and their skill in combat makes them useful against other heavy infantry. They are disciplined, and useful for numerous battlefield roles; able to fill in for a few times their own number if needed, making them a fine reserve as well as exemplerary shock troops.

    Historically, the Carnutes were devoted followers of the horned god, Cernunnos. Their bravery would be unquestionable, and skill at arms most surely superb. They would be armed and outfitted in the best equipment available. They were also charged with defending the "Great Gallic Council" where Celts tried to solve their internal grievances diplomatically; a job they likely took with great severity and pride. They defend the 'legal' rulers of Gaul, the Aedui, and were sworn enemies of their opposition; as such, in no case would they have been employed by the most dissident enemies of the Aedui, the Arverni alliance.

    Is there any real distinct advantage between the two factions?

    I just like the Arverni because of their color. Other than that...?

    Well, the Averni king is appointed by god himself, so they are obviously the best. Duh...

    False. The Arverni king was voted to the position, and was a god himself.

    Gameplay-wise, they each have an unique unit, and their starting position differs, but that's about it.

    The Arverni unit seems to be just a cheaper Solduros unit.

    ...and weaker.

    btw... I suggest you take away the spear from the Solduros, Arjos, Galatian, Dacian, & Casse variant (forgot the names). The 2.25 lethality of the big sword makes them kick more ass.

    Fighting isn't about winning, it's about depriving your enemy of all options except to lose.

    Practically, yeah. Cheaper, a little weaker and more men/unit. Plus, they look damn good too!

    It's just the plain old Arverni Arjos ("Nobles"):



    The Arverni ("Superior Ones", home to the famous Vercingetorix) are a large powerful tribe who have become extremely wealthy through trade with the Mediterranean and 'exploitation' of the trade routes North. As such, the Arverni have a large body of Nobles afforded the time and wealth to prepare for battle.

    The Arjos ("Nobles") sport the finest equipment available and train daily in its use. Due to their wealth and status they tend not to be as concerned with feats of valor, but instead exhibit greater tenacity in battle.

    Though not the equal of the Greeks or Macedonians, the Arjos fight well in phalanx and prove themselves a sturdy force in any battle line.
    Cingetos are far better than them, and I speak from experience.
