    @jnebbe SB had a very poorly defended hill city (two longbows) which I had T0 access too in my game when I was done with the backstabbing snake Hannibal.
    I diverted a secondary stack to take this city, something like 2 catapults, 2 elephants and 3 ragtags axes or whatever it was.
    After 2 catapults softened up the second longbow, but didn't dent the first, and after two elephants promoted with flank1+2 got down the longbow to something like 5.7... well, the other in the once hopeful little stack retreated in shame.
    Not getting this city was huge since it made it so much difficult to defend from counterattacks later on once my main stack had taken his capital.

    Sitting bulls archers are really the stuff of nightmares. :|

    Yes all I did was buy the GOG version instead of downloading online and messing with Moderator Action: <<SNIP>>
    In hindsight rushing SB is a little silly, Hannibal had the hindu holy city+walls and I figured it wouldn't be possible without catapults, maybe should've waited till construction and just try cats+axes

    I played up this one up to 1AD. Then, out of curiosity, played a few turns of the following BOTM (Brennus) when it became available.
    Unfortunately, since then a faulty SSD forced me to reset my gaming laptop from zero - reinstall Windows etc.
    So won't be able to submit neither of these games. :sad:
