    Default Civil war

    Do the roman factions start a civil war if you are playing as a different faction EX: Brittania If they do how long does it usually take to start and is there any way I can speed it up.

    So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road,
    but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely
    chicken's dominion maintained. ~Machiavelli

    Hi woad&fangs,
    I'm sorry to say that I've only ever seen it happen once in R:TW 1.5. In that case, it occurred at around about 12BC while I was playing as The Greek Cities. Since I have only ever seen it occur once, I think, sadly, that it rarely occurs and usually the Romans keep a resonably united front.

    Fortunately, I am lead to believe that there is a way of speeding it up, although save game compatability will probably be lost. In R:TW version 1.3, certain members think that the civil war was changed so that the AI triggered it earlier. I hear that this was reversed back to 1.2 levels in 1.5. Perhaps a downgrade to the older patch may provide you with the desired effects.

    I hope this helps, cheers!

    Hypothetically, what would happen if you were a long time ally of, say, the Julii (showering them with gifts, etc.) and went to war with the Brutii, for instance?

    Would that cause the Civil War? Or help cause it?

    Would the Romans just have a very strong alliance or would the senate popularity and people popularity matter. If they do matter than I guess bribing generals that are popular with the senate might help. If they have a strong alliance and thats all then your Idea looks pretty good Warmaster Horus.

    From my experience, the Julii will simply carry on with the Brutii, although, when you are a non-Roman it's very hard to determine if their popular support is high enough for them to perform the split anyway. Any theories would only be provable if the CA told us. Sorry.

    I believe that, once the civil war can be started, it will just be a strong alliance. However, as said, this theory can only be confirmed by the CA. My appologies.
