If I recall correctly, 300 Spartans held off over 250,000 Persians for 3 days. The Persians' elite troops, also called the Immortals, got their asses handed to them. Even though the Spartans did inevitably lose, they took a lot of Persians with them. Just saying.

Not to be confused with the Norwegian Immortals used against King Harold just prior to the battle of Hastings where Harold was defeated by William the Conqueror. Those Immortals lost too. Just saying. I know my history too, just saying. :wink:

The general sentiment seems to be that the NAC is a weak empire.
Let's see if we can change that sentiment.

NAC anti-SHIP turret- A large turret that launches large spheres that are essentially mini-nukes/EMP missiles. Operated by an inexplicably drunk guy.

I look forward to doing battle with the Immortals and their allies
Nukes are so last tech-level, and I'd like like to see that shopping trolley stand up to the H.O.E.S (High Orbit kinetic Energy Strike) weapon system. Remember that the empires on both sides have their own agendas but would gladly go off at a tangent just to get rid of a smug grin.

Actually Wikipedia says:

Greeks:
12600-13800

Persians:
70,000–300,000

It's this part that's remembered in history:
Wikipedia wrote:Aware that his force was being outflanked, Leonidas dismissed the bulk of the Greek army, and remained to guard the rear with 300 Spartans, 700 Thespians, 400 Thebans and perhaps a few hundred others, the vast majority of whom were killed.
But, then again, who really cares anyways. :(

You're right, but my main point was that a small army can make an epic last stand that others will remember, even if they get wiped out in the process.

Actually, of all the defenders at Thermopylae, the Thespians survived... and went on to make a movie called 300. :rtfm:

Yuk yuk yuk.

But the Persian Immortals at Thermopylae still ended up killing all of the defending spartans, so if anything, they'll win after sustaining an absurd amount of casualties.

Does the Immortal Empire have any sort of mass mind control? If so, freedom ain't gonna last. If they don't, well, let's just say...

70% OFF ALL
PHASED FREQUENCY DISTORTION
MIND CONTROL UNITS

Or you could just blow them all up. As usual.
