Hello people

I m setup by your misleading Game called Ancient Wars of Greece. If you know something about those countries down there , then you shouldn't call it Ancient wars of greece because this country does not existed in this times.

Greece and it's name was alluded first time in history in ~1827. Why don't you call it ancient wars of germany or any other european country which WAS NOT in this time, hilarious isn't it?. So you re roleplaying, doing theatre or something? then do it right. Alexander or Filip would not know what you re talking about when you mention the word greece. And if you say ellada then you mean newcomer/immigrant.

Do it right or let it be. You want us to respect hitler or what are you dreaming of?

Change the Name of this Game!!!

Greetings Macedonian

Ancient Greece wasn't known as Macedonia either; not until the end of Philip's campaign. Macedon was (and is in the game) a small kingdom within the Hellenestic world.

If you play through the Philip of Macedon campaign, the Kingdom of Macedon eventually conquers all of ancient Greece.

Historians refer to the period as either ancient greece or classical greece, then often changed to hellenic greece after Alexander, and finnaly roman greece when the romans took over, so it's perfectaly historic to call the game something with greece, even if greece wasn't used back then.

I'm damn sure Norway wasn't the name of norway back in the bronze age, but everybody knows what you mean when you say bronze age norway.
