Brush up your historical knowledge, before I am going to take any lessons in your history class.
Yea, it was sooo hard to conquer Lydia... Hmm. How could they stop the Romans, when, at that time, Persia had been conquered (by Alexander the Great), and by that time under the rule of the hellenistic Seleucid dynasty??? Do you know something I don't???

I don't think the "Immortals" should be a UU. They were a unit of 10.000 men. The Elite Unit of Persia. You can't build several of them!!?
