    Voted Byzantium because Egypt and England start in 2 corners of the map and have access to Crusades/Jihads.

    Curious to see how fast you roll over the world from a central starting position and without those Upkeep abolishing steroids.

    I predict it will take me 70 turns to meet victory conditions with Byzantium.

    Russia, on the other hand, possibly 100 turns.

    Also voted Byzantines.
    Being in the middle of a Catholic/Islamic Sandwich can be a ugly place to leave yourself (potentially) exposed.

    But I enjoy the out and out agression you have shown in the past two campaigns and good luck!!!

    I voted for Russia to see how best to handle a faction that does not have crusades / Jihad and has long supply route.

    I can't vote, but I'd case mine for Russia. See if you can beat 100 turns - I bet you can.

    I see... so, you believe that Byzantine or Russia would create serious difficulties for me?

    Here is a sneak preview of my next conquest:

    Perhaps some mistakenly believe that I am a one trick pony... and all I know how to do is exploit the crusade function. I wonder what would happen if I removed the ability to crusade... and played as an Orthodox faction.

    I voted Byzantium as well, since you commented in your Egyptian campaign that it would be more difficult to play as an Orthodox faction, so I'd like to see you do so.

    The choice is clear. A new Byzantine post will be created due to demand.

    See the preview above...../\

    I voted Russia.

    The Byzantines have access to some tremendous troops early on, and would imo, suit askthepizzaguy's playstyle perfectly.

    I think Russia would prove a more interesting thread.

    I voted Russia as well but would enjoy any faction you choose. Your threads are most entertaining askthepizzaguy.

    There are few things more annoying than some idiot who has never done anything trying to say definitively how something should be done.

    I am halfway through both the Byzantine and Russian campaigns.

    Russia: 32 regions turn 50
    Byz: 32 regions turn 38

    I will be posting both campaigns. Due to Russia's position, I estimate that it takes a good 10 turns to equal the strength of a different faction around turn 1-3.
