With one base in the city, and one in the field, it is important to coordinate your offensive and defensive forces. If you push too far forward and take too many losses, only to find out the other team control the other environment, you may find yourself having to race back to your own base. Likewise, over-committing on defense will leave your allies to be ganged up on and routed. Conflict here may sometimes feel disorderly and punishing, but making sure you have map visibility and team coordination guarantees that you will be the hunter, not the hunted.


The battle in the city can get chaotic at times with lots of fighting on multiple flanks, fast retreats and quick decisions to be made. Ensuring that your team is coordinated here, that you push forward as one, is key to ensuring success in the city.


Over in the field, combat takes a different form. There are several chokepoints you can use to maintain map control, with the aqueduct and bridges proving good locations for a defensive stand, but be careful on your way over to them as there is lots of long grass where sneaky barbarians could be hiding, or archers waiting to ambush you.

The importance of Capua was significant during the history and rise of Rome, to which it was connected by one of the principal military highways of Italy, the Via Appia. The city saw numerous political and military conflicts. In 73 BC, Spartacus was among a group of Gladiators and slaves who escaped from the gladiatorial school (Ludus) near Capua. They seized several wagons of gladiatorial weapons and armor, plundered the region surrounding Capua, recruited many other slaves into their ranks, and defeated the legions sent after them. This sparked the beginning of the Third Servile War.
