* Rout level is the total TQ values that routed by end game.  A higher score is worse as it is a measure of the army's disintegration.  When an army's Rout Level meets or exceeds its Withdrawal Level, the army loses the battle.

Tactics

Macedonian

I think the key here is to make this a fighting withdrawal, not a rapid one.  The Illyrians will come after you and some of your units will have to engage.  The trick is to protect your phalanxes and get them across the river.  The other units will have to fight a bit.  The cavalry does not matter for the victory condition, only the Rout Level.  Use them hard but don't waste them too early.
