Ok, i recently DL'd the praetorians multiplayr demo, No problems with any civilization but what i "want" to know is: WHAT DO THE EGYPTIANS FREAKING DO!?!?!?!?!

They dont form the turtle, They dont throw stunning rocks, so i give up... What is the special power of the egyptians?

They breed as rabbits and most of its basic troops can pray to regain stamina fast.

You need a very large army when playing with the Egyptians.

Yes the Egy's are very weak compaird to the other two civ's,
so you have to try to outnumber your enemy's units two to one

Use many archers to support your melees

Thats helps guys. It's too bad the egyptians dont do anything. They have the coolest buildings and units but no battle power.

Hokey dokey, thats ok i like the barbarians the best anyway!

I like the stones that stun enemies.

Anyway thanks alot

Use the prathian cavalry. They kick major ass. Look at mission XIV in the campaign for a good strategy using egyptians. This one really kept me on th edge for a while. I only managed a 400/1250 because I used wicked tactics at the end. Honestly, in this mission, without the praetorians you are dead, roasted meat. :D
