The Stewards report a late change in the starting line up.

The Chinese are out and the red devils (Abysia) are in.

Cheers,

Dooley

In fact, I`m not going to quit - it was just a rhetorical question.
But if Ermor isn`t stopped really early on, our midgame is going to consist of desperate last stands.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and speculate that you're not a big fan of LA Ermor

I've never played with them or against them in MP, but if there's issues in using them I can bow out. The reason I'm playing them is because I'm currently playing EA and MA Ermor in two other MP games -- my only MP experience so far (one of which is in its final stages), and I wanted to complete the trifecta.

A cursory look at the Ermor strategy guides tells me that the nation is a bit of a one-trick pony with a ton of weaknesses and lots of counters, so I'm not sure how they could be such an unstoppable juggernaut. Admittedly, they seem to have a good mid game, but they look almost weak at the end game when SCs and powerful battlefield magic effectively neuter them.

This is purely anecdotal, but in my MA Ermor game, I lost an entire army of 1,000+ cavalry units to a single well placed spell. Admittedly, it's different age but the mechanics are similar, i.e., chaff armies can be easily brought down with the right tactics.

one caveat, tho. remmember, merely your dominion will kill our population when u r LA ermor. that makes u a very inconvenient neighbor. so u might get more negative early game attention than u r used to. but u prob can handle it.

Population. Who really needs them, anyway? I'm sure that the "Friends of Bone Daddy" wouldn't let a few of their dead citizens stand in the way of true friendship.

For those that do we'll magnanimously implement a "no temple on your border" policy, although you'll need to provide your own preachers. A small gratuity of death gems would be warmly accepted as well, but I'm not greedy -- not yet anyway.

Dreamers fear not the dying of the dead!

Ermor has a distinct advantage in numbers, yes. But that just makes things challenging, right? Time to die like a noob!
