Call me completely crazy BUT: I think I nailed Celts as viable Civ

    You aren't obligated to do anything, Leoreth. You could retire and live a long, German life if you wanted. We're just say, hey! this is a good idea, maybe for a birthday present Leoreth can work on this when he wants to practice his computer skills. Although, the Turkic Civilization is still on the top of my wishlist.

    Then what is the point of including this kind of argument?

    It only ends up being offputting.

    oddly enough i asked a while back how to give the Celts stability in the modding thread.


    IRRC my answer was somewhere along the lines of you may as well be adding a new civ.

    needless to say I gave up there. :p

    There could potentially be two civs representing the celts :
    the continental celts and the picts/scottish. Both would be unplayable, exept by human only. This would thus solve the "great migration" issue, moreover it would be fun to play and it'd add something to the gameplay IMO.

    This is a pretty good idea, actually. Give Rome something to actually conquer. It could respawn later as the "Celtic League."

    I think that would be a bit much, "the great migration" is main reason playing Celts would be fun in the first place. Playing as Scots would be no fun at all, you'd have nothing to do except turtle in the top corner being smashed by England (which is basically why I was always against Celts).

    I think you can do it with AI, again Phoenicia now plays quite well for computer & human.

    I am certain that Celts needs more redesign, ultimately to give Roman more challenge that just "be there to lose".
    It's not fun while playing as Rome and Lutetia spawn without any units guarding.... like you could just send a lone Warrior and takeover the city.
    Boring. Taking fully guarded Lutetia with more development is more challenging and require strategies.

    I still see no reason for me though why I should support it to be a Human playable civilization.

    I would only play Celts in an RTS, not a TBS.

    RTS- Real Time Strategy Game. Think StarCraft or Command and Conquer.

    TBS: Turn Based Strategy Game. Think Civ.

    RTS = Real time strategy:think command and conquer, rise of nations.

    TBS = Turn based Strategy:Civilization, Total War (well the map anyway the battles are rts.)

    You have two emperors as avatar. Coincidence? I don't think so.

    Mine is, in fact, Augustus, by the way. ;)

    I wouldn't consider Trajan the best emperor, but he was a very good one. He was called one of the Five Good Emperors by Machiavelli for a reason. Now, the question is, is being complimented by Machiavelli a good thing, or a bad thing? :lol:
