The Macedonians are a Hellenistic faction originating from northeastern Greece around the Haliacmon valley, over time they came to expand and dominate Thrace and Illyria. Then under Alexander the Great went on conquer much of the known world traveling as far as India before dying of fever and forever cementing the influence of Greek culture throughout the contemporary known world. Perhaps one of the best known conquerors of nations, Alexander's legacy remained around for some time even under new kingdoms headed by his former generals. With a wide selection of units and siege engines, Macedonians are well suited to creative tactics and strategy - especially combined arms.

Civilization TraitsEdit

  • Macedonians have a wide selection of infantry available from well armored hoplite spearmen to all ranged infantry, both skirmishers and archers along with slingers. Making them a very capable and robust faction, capable of countering and avoid themselves from being countered, lacking only in dedicated swordsmen.
  • Macedonian Cavalry are some of the best available in terms of quality, more than equal to any Persian Cavalryman. Companion Cavalry are heavily armored, quick and very powerful especially useful for keeping away enemy swordsmen and even often capable of taking on enemy spearmen.
  • Macedonians also are capable of fielding all major types of siege engines available, from Bolt shooters to Catapults and especially the fearsome "Helopolis" Siege Tower. Macedonians should be more than capable of assaulting any fortified opponent.
  • Their navy is more or less similar to other Hellenistic factions, sporting a decent navy to support their endeavors.
  • They also have pretty decent fortifications with effective stone walls and wall towers to defend them.

Civilization BonusEdit

  • Hellenic League.
    • History: After the unification of Greece, Philip II gathered all the city-states together to form the Hellenic League, with Macedon as the its leader. With this Pan-Hellenic federation he planned to launch an expedition to punish Persia for past wrongs. Although assassinated before he could carry out the invasion, his son Alexander the Great took up the mantle and completed his fathers plans.
    • Effect: All Macedonian units have a +10% attack bonus vs. Persian and Hellenic factions (but also -5% attack debonus vs. Roman units).
  • Syntagma.
    • History: Based upon the Theban Oblique Order phalanx, the Syntagma was the formation that proved invincible against the armies of Hellas and the East.
    • Effect: Infantry pike units can use the Syntagma formation (without the need to research a technology). The Syntagma formation is very slow, gives a high pierce attack bonus, and is nearly invincible from the front. However, it is extremely vulnerable from the rear and prone to being flanked unless guarded adequately.
  • Hellenization.
    • History: By means of their superior culture and evocative language, the Greeks were highly successful in Hellenizing various foreigners. During the Hellenistic Age, Greek was the 'lingua franca' of the Ancient World, spoken widely from Spain to India.
    • Effect: Constructing an expensive Theatron increases the territory expanse of all buildings by 20%.

Team BonusEdit

  • Standardized Currency.
    • History: The Macedonians and their successors (Diadochoi) minted coins of very high quality. On their currency the Diadochoi in particular frequently depicted themselves as the rightful successor to Alexander the Great, attempting to legitimize their rule.
    • Effect: Tribute and trade between allies of the metal resource is bonused ~ 15%.

Unique TechnologiesEdit

  • Military Reforms.
    • History: When Philip II came to the Macedonian throne he began a total reorganization of the Macedonian army. His reforms created a powerful cavalry arm to his army that would prove useful to both himself and his son Alexander's conquests.
    • Effect: Each subsequent Barracks constructed comes with 5 free (random) Macedonian military units. This also applies to the Barracks of allied players (they receive 5 free units of their own culture for each new Barracks constructed).
  • Hellenistic Metropolises.
    • History: Beginning with Alexander, the Hellenistic monarchs founded many cities throughout their empires, where Greek culture and art blended with local customs to create the motley Hellenistic civilization.
    • Effect: Civic Centers gain double Health and double default arrows.
