I ment in general. I'm quite certain that wiping the map with Immortals / HAs is possible on Monarch (I've even heard players having done so on Deity) , but then especially, like you said, having an Economy that can support such Conquest is harder to attain, than the necessary number of troops. That's something completely different to what I wrote though, what I wrote was, that Darius can get Cuirrassiers earlier than Cryus, and that having further advanced units is a greater advantage than having slightly higher promoted, but older units. If your resources aren't connected because of not having Calendar, you're obviously playing a different game. If I were you I'd reformulate the whole post, and think about what you actually wrote there, and change it as fast as possible.
