I'm new to this, so please don't freak out if I get anything wrong. Been looking around and this looks fun. So here we go. If my opponent would please choose an ancient WESTERN empire and explain why it was the best. This first round is just to accept the debate and introductions. I have chosen the Roman Empire. With a powerful military, a somewhat successful government, and huge territory mass, it is in my opinion the greatest empire. Thanks to my opponent in advance if they join, and have fun.

The Romans were Eastern, even with a Western branch. Therefore, my opponent failed to provide a Western civilization.

I rest my case.
