(Every thing said here is imho)
With all that I have seen on the forums and while play ing the game, I think that turtling is the best choise for egyptians. With their Brewer improvments, you can fend off any attacks while you reasearch the slave advisor so you can build walls. To defend the wall, you can send the charriots out of the gate to hit any seige engines, and with a long range bow hero (cleo) You can stop almost any attack. Then, in the late game, you can prevent any attacks and just raid with the charriots, untill you can build a big army.
To me, this seems like an answer to the roman rush. However, I am not good enough to try it. THe key thing here is the slave reasearch, so you can mass wals. Later, the "wood for gold" advisor is very good in the late game.

Didnt I beat you and sail low res persia vs 2 persias back in the old days? Isnt that right oxo? my good ol pal ^_^ Shall we 1v1? Or are you describing high res? Cause in high res everybody plays rome but I cant even play rome correct in high res so pretty much the only thing I can do in high res is mass army and get the economy that I know how to get.
Let me read that again...

Lol. Ya right!

A competitive player can play ALL civs. If roman had to play any other civ but rome, he would get pawned.
As soon as I saw that I groaned audibly. Seriously, I knew what was coming next.

I had to use a spell checker for Roman's reply. Knowing spellcheckers, it came out like this:
Dint I beat you and sail low revs Persia vs. 2 personas back in the old days? Isnít that right oxen? My good oil pal ^_^ Shall we 1v1? Or are you describing high red? Cause in high rest everybody plays Rome but I cant even play Rome correct in high rest so pretty much the only thing I can do in high rest is mass army and get the economy that I know how to get.

Why doesn't everybody drop it? *re-reads _o0XxX0o_'s quotes*

Roman, have I not told you multiple times that I was eating while playing that game? I let you and _o0XxX0o_ fight it out while eating. It was a 1v1 you vs o0XxX0o, but you had two person's worth of gold so you had the advantage anyways.

Im not sure what was up with that spell check thing that guy did.But you did have a big army Sail. and my ally did use some of his gold. But either way the point is that I still beat oxo without Rome which is what I was getting at the only thing was that. That was the only game I can recall playing oxo in without using greece egypt or rome. Those all being stronger then Persia.

I had an army but I didn't use it... I even specifically told you not to attack it, but I guess you- uh- forgot that part.

Actually you were playing now that I recall.You had elephants and kept stampeding my army. And I couldnt go around your army cause Oxo walled off his side of the map.

No, that _o0XxX0o_... Remember, we were both Persia.

Being months ago, Persian strats have changed. Now, building 30-40 cats is all it takes to beat a non-Persian civ. Rome is even more vulnerable to persian cat attack.

Well that's not a good aditude, bballkid00. I happen to like this game, and this is a fan site. I do agree, with you though, it is dead, but there's no sence in rubbing it in.

Yep, cavalry will own siege and its not like Spearmen actually do anything and cavalry can run past swords so they can rip apart siege. Expanding a wall closer and closer to the enemy base will change that, though.

PS: Roman, email him for that off-topic type stuff.
