Megiddo

Post by batesmotel » Sat May 26, 2012 2:23 pm

Currently this scenario favors the Canaanites too heavily for multi-player play. The combination of superior Canaanite numbers plus the superior terrain makes it nearly impossible for the Egyptians. At a minimum it would be worth while to upgrade the Egyptian archers from poor to average (which is how they are classified in the TT lists any way). Thutmose III should probably also be rated as an IC given his historical track record.

I fully concur with Chris. Don't know why the big ridge when my accounts say the terrain was flat. Also, bow LCh can't do much against jav LCh.

Agree with this. Thutmose III was supposedly the Egyptian Napoleon.

I've seen several maps of the battle. They all vary to some extent. Here is the map from a GMT Games board game Chariots of Fire:

From a non-historical point of view , it is a very uneven match , the superior number and the terrain
are way too much for the Egyptians to win this , especially with all the poor quality archers.

and this was my first match against bates that i have won , so something is astray....
