Barbarians?

Postby bagathur_janie » Thu Jan 24, 2019 9:32 am

Am I the only one who suddenly invaded by barbarians?, I have an Island with a lot of military and well developed but all of a sudden, barbarians (with pirate flags), alongside with musketeers invaded half of my land in a few turns. Are there enough counter-insurgency like tactics or strategies for securing my land from barbarians?
PS: 1 have 2 catapult, dozen pikemen, dozen Chariots, 14+ Phalanx, and 12 Legions.

It sounds like your problem is that you are technically backwards, if your best units are Legions and Pikemen while barbarians have already got Musketeers.

Looks like it as well to me, you arennn't following the technological evolution. Could you try doing more research, even if it means sacrificing development in different directions?
And if you absolutely, definitely can't progress faster, then try to swarm your enemies with technologically inferior but numerically superior units. It's costly, but it's a last ditch tactic that can work.
