I would have to say the Romans and Greeks both. I am in the process of working on my Ph.D in Biblical Studies, and I am a big fan of Early Church History, so with that said, i love the history of the Roman Empire. I also fancy the Greek Empire, mainly bc, the New Testament of Bible was written in Greek, and it was preserved in the Greek until it was translated into the English in 1611 by King James board of scholars, into what we have today as the English bible.
Thats pretty impressive imo, thanks for sharing your thoughts :).
As you can tell from my post here and other post in the forum i dont really play these games (History Bases) for the mechanics (RTS,RPG Type, ect.) But I play these for the Rich History, Social Science, Lore, and Art Value.
Back in time i used to play at the old msn Gaming zone wiht a clan that we have created with some friends, and no doubts that fot the type of DeathMatch on line game the religion Choson used to be really strong. One of the things that i used to enjoy most was play a war 3x3 where everyone used to pick CHOSON and we started a legendary wars. That sound that a lot of swords use to do was magical to my ears!!!
A ) +30% hunting
B ) War Elephant, Armored Elephant, Elephant Archer units 50% faster
C ) Trireme +30% fire rate
A civilization good for the beginning of the game (because of the hunting bonus) and for the late game (because of the bonus of the units), and war elephants are something horribly effective and nice to look at.
