Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Will you add faction X ?
A: We're not making any promises concerning upcoming factions, we follow our planning and eventually new factions are done.

Q: Will you add X item ?
A: If it fits our time frame then we will most likely add it as long as it is relevant, if it doesn't then we won't.
Items we won't do:
- Square Scutums
- Segmentata
- Corinthian Helmet
Stop requesting these please.

Q: Faction X is so OP/UP (overpowered/underpowered)!!!
A: That's not a question. Also we tested everything against everything in multiplayer a dozen times already and as far as I'm concerned it's relatively balanced. It seems to work decently in SP too so if all you have is one random empiric occurrence where you got your ass handed to you that won't be convincing of a faulty balance.

Q: Is the mod dead?
A: No.

Other things worth mentioning:
We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames. We do have a planning for what we are doing (most of the time) so there is no point in suggesting to us what our next move shall be. Thank you for reading the F.A.Q. and twice the thanks for reading the F.A.Q. before posting a question already answered in it.

Can't say I'm surprised. That's like saying Captain America's costume was the standard uniform of World War II American soldiers.
This movie is at best a work of fiction based on history which as far as movies on this period go it had some of the most ridiculous props I've ever seen. This is not by any means accurate. Adding insult to injury, it's not even the correct time-frame.

Now two things come to mind, you're either a troll wasting our time or just a victim of misinformation. I've been there, done that. Now my advice is to not trust any movie, get some books and educate yourself. Accepting you're wrong might seem a hard task but once you've breached this barrier and start actually learning things about the ancient world you'll see it's a lot more complex and interesting than what the movies depict. By trying to look cool and attract a wider audience they actually make things worse.
I'd rather have the varied and colorful Spartan army of the epoch alongside their allies
fighting Persians with colorful clothing and varied armors rather than half naked bodybuilders fighting bleak tuaregs and the 70s action movie ninja while in their underwear.

well if you want just to see pictures of the factions then you could just check our research thread
about books most of thems are faction based so at least you need to say what faction you want to learn

My english might be blatantly bad, so if you have trouble understanding me try giving it a second read and demand that I explain some passages with more depth. Here I'll write a synthesis of what I said earlier:

Despite our limited resources I tried to make the faction as accurate as possible and provided you with two examples, there are more if needed. I posted part of the documentation on which we based the troops since you seem to doubt our work and our words.
The bit about the karma is directed towards you not in a demand but the least of a reward I could provide to you if you provided us with reference material to improve the mod towards better historical accuracy. Spartan armor is a very ambiguous term and could mean a lot of different things (an exomis? a linothorax? a breastplate? It can't be since they are all in the mod...).
All I want you to do is to be more specific and provide examples as you have left us a bit in the dark here.
