I got the impress ROTK stats could vary between history, novel, culture. In fairness to koei, the Yuan reputation is quite bad

Thanks, I was surprised by Shang being quite capable as well

They may have been as capable as Crassus if they were given a fair shot.

Just my opinion of course, but I think they were far superior to Crassus (unless we're measuring financial wealth). Other than a victory under Sulla, I don't remember Crassus doing anything spectacular militarywise. He did crush Spartacus, but Spartacus is no Mengde.
Do what you believe is right and don't be distracted by praises or insults.

True.

I just needed a realistic, impressive Roman comparison for contrast and Pompey seemed to be stretching it-Pompey is Deng Ai level.


And I watch Historia Civilis a lot so was first one that came to mind.
