Topic Subject:Trouble against Greeks using Isis

I'm having trouble as an Isis player against Greeks. First off, that pesky Heroic ranged seige is scary. Secondly, Greek troops are so strong. I have trouble deciding whether to fight in classical using barracks or FH and using Migdols. Advice needed, as I seem to do well against Norse and other Eggys.

use anubites for the siege or camels.In heroic it get's hard for greek because camels are a match for their cavalry, and chariot archers are the best archers.

Spear+Slinger to for defense.
Anubite/Sphinx for raid.
Once in heroic,Ancestor(+Ecplise) to kill opponent's base or forward.I think Isis is the best civ to fight against greek.

Isis is great against Greek.

Remember that even though their troops are stronger and more powerful, yours are cheaper and easier to mass, so make use of it. And Isis has +3 pop cap on each town center you build so make use of that too.

If against Zeus, just make sure you make lots of priests to counter horrible massed hydras and minotaurs. Make axemen and slingers to fight their hoplites and maybe some spearmen against hippikon raids.
Maybe try a FH with Ancestors+Eclipse to take their TC

If against Poseidon, you should probably advance with Anubis and mass spears. Make some slings too if you see toxotes. Get Anubis' spear upgrade which will really help you. Poseidon is most likely to raid you with hipps, but while they're doing it, send some Anubites to raid their food which they'll be needing a lot of with their cavalry.

If against Hades, mass slings. You could either use Anubites to get at their archers or use sphinxes to attack their stronger buildings. Against Hades you'll need stong seige to take down those buildings.

A FH might work against all of them, particularly Poseidon, just make sure you make spears to counter the raiding hipps.
