    Well yeah, but in actual fact it's just a game and many people like it so unless your hell bent on making sure a game has 100% realism it doesn't really matter. Otherwise if it was real we'd have to start a war and blow it half way because there's no resources, so I am happy it is not 100% real.

    or you could just win long before you ran outta Resources in the first place like real war is won take note no one ever wins a war anytime there is conflict where swords are drawn everyone loses no matter who walks off the field the men left alive grieve for their fallen comrades and those that died well they are dead

    You can't win a war without troops, war = troops = resources = income = population = taxes & trade, if you don't have one, the system falls and the whole faction collapses.

    "In a typical game, the player often continuously waged war against opponent factions. For a skilled player, it is possible to sweep the entire map, controlling every single province within a period of seventy years by continuously waging war. In actual history, however, warfare was often sporadic and continuous warfare was not possible to wage due to the amount of resources required. Another element of unrealism is that the travel rate of armies is not realistic. "

    Yeah, what a game that would have been. The ability to not wage war because you ran out of resources. Rome: Total War is a war game, a strategy war game. If you aren't waging continous war than wtf else are you suppose to do? As well, unrealistic travel rate? Do they actually expect you to wait hours (Real time) to get from one city to another? Now I am actually a fan of realism games, I play Project Reality for BF2 constantly. However this guy needs to get a grip on the balance between reality and good game-play.
