File:Caesar vs Pompey.png

Caesar vs Pompey is the fourth and last map of the Ave Caesar campaign in Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome. Caesar must destroy his rival, Pompey.

Scenario Instructions Edit

You are locked in a struggle with Pompey, the very successful consul from the East, to be the ruler of Rome. Pompey has fled to Greece where he has great support. Having solidified your control in Rome and neutralized other Pompeiian forces, you march to Greece to finish Pompey. The two armies meet near the small city of Pharsalus to decide who will become the true ruler of Rome.

Objective Edit

  • Destroy the forces of Pompey. If Caesar dies, the mission will be lost.

Strategy Edit

You start off with a few infantry units, two Stone Throwers, a Scout, four Villagers, and Caesar himself. There are two enemies, Afranius (red) and Pompey (yellow), both Romans. Both are quite defended, so build up for your assault. At all times, make sure Caesar is safe.

In this map, it pays to be aggressive. Claim any gold mines you can, and destroy enemy military buildings before they can replenish their forces. Finish off Afranius before attempting to siege Pompey.

They both rely on their siege units, but Scythe Chariots are quite cheap, and strong enough for these purposes. Save your gold for Catapults and Helepoli.

If you find yourself lacking gold, then leave their docks intact - trading is a reliable source of gold.
