Civil War???
This totally rediculous... i was playing on Legendary because the game is so ♥♥♥♥ing easy - until it randomly decides to throw 9 full armies at me... WTF. How the ♥♥♥♥ am i supposed to beat this, if i cant even control 9 armies myself, because they immidately conquered so many ♥♥♥♥ing regions that my Empire shrunk. I seriously dont see a way to win against this random ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t... The original RTW didnt need this gamebreaking anti-fun crap... i just wasted like 5 hours on this Campaign vs this ♥♥♥♥.. and up until the Civil War started i was doing great. -.-

It's not random. When you reach enough influence (70% control of the Senate I believe) civil war breaks out. It is there to simulate something like Caesar's rise to dictator. Gotta be prepared. I guess you learned the hard way.

Good to know, I'm with 52% control almost reaching level 3 empire I'll unlock 9 - 12 generals...
Think next turn I'll start doing merriage, so I'll delay more my influence, and also get -5% upkeep cost for troops.
As there is no indicator you get screwed over the first time... and as its on legendary i cant even load from an earlier point. It's like the game just Writes "Game Over" across the screen and GG.

Wow what a great feature.Finally something to look forward to and Rome did have this feature chap,when you got to powerful you could go to war with the other three Rome factions.

pompey managed to field a huge army right of the bat.
Yeah but in RTW the player chose to attack the Senate, not the other way around. Also im playing this to the end right now and every tiny and big barbarian tribe wants something from the cake... the Senate Loyalists can be happy to end up with 2 full Provinces, if any at all... lol

No, the senate would command you to kill yourself and would keep doing so too your heirs... I like the new system

I'm sorry but...

>States game is too easy
>Complains that it's hard

Maybe they put it in for that exact reason? So it wouldn't be so easy?

I was lucky when the civil war arrived. I had all my armies gathered for a final push against the greek states and BOOM the senate armies spawned in front of me. I won the civil war in one turn hehe.

Got the Civil war event as Junia at turn 202. 10+ stacks of senate loyalists appeared in my backyard. I was very sceptical to my chances at beating them. Well, appears as if the AI needs a bit of rework. It captured two cities and then went completely erratic, running around in a nearby forest doing nothing. I quickly swooped in and pillaged their completely empty capital and left it. After a couple of turns the AI decided it wanted the city back and sent 5 stacks of praetorians and what not at it. However, this is when it gets interesting. I only had a very damaged garrison in the city (at 30% strength), it was walled with improved fortifications but the AI rushed the gates without batteringrams or anything. Result? 6000+ dead loyalists to my 300 troops....Where is the entertainment value in kamikaze AI?

How many threads is this now complaining about Civil War in the Roman Empire?

It beggars belief this many people could be so blind..

I was taking care not to gain senate loyalty so only had 35% when civil war broke out around 100 turns in. Ofc I was still 10 or so turns from final upgrade of my armies so had litterally nothing to fight them with.

There seems to be other triggers than loyalty
