Description: Played RFC with Greece when my vassal Ethiopia decided it was time to declare war on Rome. Yay!? I had only a few troops home when Roman legions started arriving. But their whole army was beaten up by barbs!

BTW The reason why there's only three defenders in Byzantion is the plague, which doesn't help.

Re: SOTD42: My Enemy's Enemy Is My Friend

The huge amount of barbarians is party caused by the Romans having the Great Wall. A little while before the European civs start to spawn the mediteranean ones get bombarded by huge numbers of barbarians to represent the fall of the Roman Empire to barbarians. However the Great Wall is protecting the Romans' cities (very good strategy) and funelling all of the barbarians that would be attacking them towards you. So basically what you're seeing is the Greek-smashing barbs AND the Rome-smashing barbs descending upon you.

Good luck

EDIT: But at least they killed the Roman army en route

See the Roman Great Wall.

I don't envy Greece here. How many turns from that moment did the plague last?

Re: SOTD42: My Enemy's Enemy Is My Friend

The Romans only survive with the Great Wall. They get destroyed without it. Also you research fast, I usually get caught with just spearmen and phalanxes when the barbs come down.

Re: SOTD42: My Enemy's Enemy Is My Friend

Never knew, it's good not to build the Great Wall... Maybe, even plague could help to get rid of your black friends... =)
