How does Total War: ROME II - Emperor Edition reward you for playing tactically?

not at all. Having the right stance selected, is more important than any sort of strategical maneuver.. campaign map movement plays no role in that game.. AI will always march through my zone of control if it wants to..

its not.soldiers run around like Ussain Bolt or Bunny from Energizer, no matter how bit shield they carry. and simple arrows will kill them by dozens no matter how heavily armored they are or how big shield they have.. combat balancing is ridiculous, focused on quickly sending blobs of units against enemy blob with no tactics whatsoever.

not even slightest. all you need to do is to rush while AI is weak and didnt accumulated enough of wealth from "hidden" sources.. there is no point in damaging their lands, as they get these money no matter what...

very casually, and quite inaccurately.

it was active quite a lot. I was active in it too.. but with CA releasing additional content, there is no point updating mod over and over every time CA decides to milk players again with some new faction "retexture".. What this game needs are gameplay fixes, not new copy-pasted factions..

How good are the graphics in Total War: ROME II - Emperor Edition?

graphical portion is ok, but game concept is bad. there are just few city models, therefore most battles you fight on the same map over and over.. previous TW games with generated maps were more interesting.
