Mass over simplification to think simming wins.
Has to be more strategy than that.
You sim and no army you’ll get bulldozed out.
Got to pick the region carefully too for it’s effect/VP.
Don’t know if any of you played Ae but that was a nightmare. The artefacts were one village that a single player had to try and hold.
I remember Ae and think it was better than this version as there was more fighting.
