Re: Cavalry Tactics

The very first scenario of Britannicus, on Very hard, is virtually impossible. If you come up with a good strategy, and try it 20 or 30 time, it can be won, but I just drop down to Hard and jump back to Very Hard. I have won it twice some time ago, with ample luck, but have been unable to do so aga...

Re: End of Game Army Composition

I think the difference is that you want to watch your archers launch flaming arrows to the skies, and I want to set a new personal best of 1,148,070. No keeper unit broke and ran form the field; ever; through all 68 scenarios. Depends. I'm not going to use fifteen Archers or something like that, bu...

Re: End of Game Army Composition

As to why I buy an Auxiliary Cavalry so soon - because of Men in Black. My standard is now to have 41,000 Prestige after nine scenarios, but I have not yet found a way to beat Men In Black without casualties. My best so far is to lose only 70, for 46,930 after 10 scenarios. I believe that the best ...

Steel Elephants! A brand new RTS from the ancient world.

Ok, so I'm playing Legion Arena once again and I enter the final battle of Gauls and Pyrrhos minicampaign, the Battle of Malventum. The enemy has got quit nothing, mostly some inexperienced archers and heavy infantrymen, with the only dangerous units being the pair of elephant squads. I quite easily...

Re: End of Game Army Composition

In a few later scenarios, where I need a third heavy, I rent a Legionary or Trarii as a heavy-duty pin-cushion/cannon-fodder. Yes, I also do this sometimes. Elephants are pretty solid for a pin cushion duty in limited casualties battles. My goal in all scenarios is to win without any (permanent) un...

Re: End of Game Army Composition

Interesting. I think I'm still too conservative in my builds, looks like i need to try something bit more different. But I noticed you also lack heavy infantry in some greater numbers, so it seems like the light armies save lots of fame. Also, I've lost qite some fame during the Gauls and Pyrhos min...

Re: Legion Lossless Progress - failed again.

Your dedication is impressive! We never expected anyone to play the game in Ironman mode :) Cheers Pip :lol: Yes, I like the game... a lot. I think you made very good work with how the RPG and strategic elements are mixed. Also, the command system is amazing. I'm trying to perfect the army, but the...

Re: Legion Lossless Progress - failed again.

Ok, so after a pair of abandoned tries, I'm back again. This time I will be more cautious. There's no reason to be stopped during the Men in Black, as long as you're not greedy and play conservatively. Same goes for many other usual chokepoints, except maybe for Etruscan Treachery (and few otehr tim...

Re: End of Game Army Composition

After an abandonned run (i was beaten during one of the early scenarios due to a controls glitch), I decided to play some more of the best game ever, Legion Arena. :)
I won't try the no-loss result (although I'd be glad with one), I'd rather concentrate on...FUN!
Adn fun shall I have!

So, every story comes to an end. I made it through the sixty-four (is that so?) battles of the whole Roman campaign.

Re: Legion Lossless Progress

Continuation of the above post. Ok, so here we are again, facing Carthaginians during the Battle of Illipa. I used a modified plan - attack the elephants head on to force my way through - , Auxilias took care of woods, both Nobles kicked out the Archers. I finished this battle with one-and-a-half a ...

Legion Lossless Progress - failed again.

(For a while I thought that I'll necro the previous thread , but I think it'll be better if there will be a new one so that the two campaigns don't mix together. Also, there were some very outdated ideas in the old thread. Also, I hope that I'll be able to make it through this time, so starting the...

Re: End of Game Army Composition

Good work. To get to the next level I suggest recruiting one Triarii, one Legionary or Praetorian, and two more Velites instead of the last two Auxilia. Specialize the Triarii as anti-cavalry (you wouldn't believe how these guys can chew up even the best of enemy cavalry hen backed up by a Velite),...
