I think it is for all. It occurs when your empire gets massive. Your home city spawns several large armys and is taken by rebels. So I reccomend having several large armies on standby ready to defend your home city or a single mega-army like I do.

I think it might also be possible to turn the rebels into your allies...

They are kinda hard to stop but depending on what your home city is then you find it a little more easy.

If your home city Is Sparta the AI will likely move and take Athens and then procede to march onwards like a cone. If it is rome they will go everywhere at once like a explosion. So keep that In mind when selecting a faction to play.

Since they spawn like 5 full armies they can be good to kill your enemys.

The units they spawn are sort of middle of the road when it comes down to pure power. So a full army full of pretorians will be able to (maybe) kill the entire rebellion.

Hope I helped I haven't come across a civil war yet but I have seen them in videos and they are scary ;)

Civil War is inevitable in every campaign.

And it won't necessarily come in your home province, I'm playing as the Iceni and I had my civil war originate in Rome.

ok thanks haha i was getting over confident better chickity check myself XD
That's wiggidy whack yo.

As The Gerbil said, it may not spawn in your home province, I'm not 100% sure but it may have something to do with having an army stationed in your capital. Atleast in earlier patches I know there was posts that for example as Rome if you had an army stationed inside of Rome the Rebels would spawn elsewhere in the empire.

no, i didn't have any units stationed in my capitol when i was the Romans last time and i still had a civil war
No no I meant, if you have an army parked in your capital, the Civil war may start in a different area.

Ohh i see
But again I'm not 100% sure. I just remember a few posts a while back about it happening to others and as The Gerbil said it is still happening however you'll have to ask him if he had an army in his capital or not.

I didn't have any armies near my capital at all. Here's a shot of my civil war breaking out in Rome:

I got really lucky with the location. My empire is the blue on the minimap in the corner, and I had no forces stationed anywhere close to France, Spain or Britannia...had the civil war broken out in any of those regions, I wouldn't have been able to stop them from snatching lots of territory.

And you can kind of see, I didn't own any of the territories bordering Rome, which helped greatly. It created a nice buffer zone, and they ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off all their neighbors (who coincidentally I had just started a war with a few turns previous) by marching through their territory to get to me.

So far I've destroyed one of their armies, badly wounded two others in battle, and I just took back Rome. They took one territory from me in southern Italy, but I have armies converging on them from North Italy and won't be long before this rebellion is crushed completely. :Bucco::Bucco:

I read in a thread on here last night, that civil war will occur at any time after you achieve level3 imperium and not before; you only suffer one civil war per campaign, so once crushed you do not need to worry about the faction's political situation after that. The poster I was reading also advised to speed up the chances of civil war as soon as you are about to reach imperium lvl3, by doing lots of political actions, so as to reduce your political influence to 0% - if I recall correctly, that is for non-Roman/non-Carthaginian factions. I'm still a fair way off it, so it'll be interesting to see if that poster was correct......when the time comes! :)
