A shallow stream ran across the map to a large lake right of the rough hill. A lar...

Re: Larger armies right across the FOG2 Digital League?

I don't know if it's too much for Pete, but I've got a crazy idea for the big map fans: New league section: Unlimited - very large armies from any period (any army possible in other sections). I am pretty sure Pete has mentioned it won't happen, so we need a volunteer to set up such a league outsid...

Re: Ludendorf has won Classical Antiquity Division A!

Congrats!


I am still certain there will be a day when I am going to win a match against you. That day is not today or tomorrow, maybe not this or next year, but *one* day :)

Re: Swuul has won Early Middle Ages Division D!

Congratulations :) , do you still think your army choice was maybe too powerful ? Yes I do. Make no mistake, it is fun to win, but I think here I won because of the army and not so much because my abilities. Then again, nobody had used the British army even once during all the previous seasons, so ...

Re: Larger armies right across the FOG2 Digital League?

IMO, would be cool to have a very large option too :) Classical Antique would be my choice, as there were some truly large battles in that era, and it would indeed give new perspective to armies such as the Galatians :)

Re: 32 Turns for Tournament Games

I've never had a player take a horse army and just run away from me the entire game. I hadn't thought of the possibility, but I have one battle (classic antique) still ongoing where the opponent had three cavalry, three light horses and a few light foot. Those all ran around my flank, without attem...

I guess I might concede just to get it over with, but I don't suppose that is what the proposal was aiming for.
I am way too competetive to concede. Even when I am down 63-0 I hope a miracle will happen which would allow me to make a comeback ;)

Re: 32 Turns for Tournament Games

Increasing the turn length only aids players whom, if given nicknames based on play style, would be dubbed “the Great Delayer” , “The Forester”, “Cocke on The Hill, “The Edger”, “Swing Wide and Deep, Forever” and “Flatearther” ;) I don't know. This season in Digital League I have in three different...

Re: Vegetius: second vs third formation?

If you look for modding ideas : what about a huge mod with cavemen, aliens, Napoleonic soldiers, galleys or whatever else ? You’re good at modding. One of these days I have to take some time (ie learn how to mod, how to make the gfx, and how to make it all work) and make a galley mod. From Triremes...

Re: Vegetius: second vs third formation?

Soldiers have their shields on their left, so advancing on the left flank would expose yourself to fire on your unshielded side. And it is a lot easier for mounted troops to fire arrows or throw javelins to the left across the body vs to the right. Of course none of this applies in game. do you thi...

Re: TT Mod version 1.5.28 now available!

In recent Digital League matches with the spartan army in Biblical era I have been trashed to kingdom and back. That, of course, has been in no little part because I suck playing with the army, but I would like to claim also because the spartan army does not fulfill the historical image I had of it....

Re: Vegetius: second vs third formation?

In ancient times it was a well known fact that the right flank always began to fall behind the left flank. This was because of basic human nature, you do not want to be the fool without cover. The shield was held in left hand, and you try to stay behind it as much as you can. When two lines met, the...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion, questions and some highbrow philosophising)

I could run a poll to see what the wider view of such a change might be. If I was captain Picard to you, I would say: https://i.pinimg.com/236x/dc/df/5b/dcdf5b42acb95fa3551faa23a2f1e9e4--funny-memes-funny-shit.jpg But as it is just me, I would say "The outcome of the poll might be quite predictable."

Re: Quick Questions Thread on Rules

I guess it is (initial number of men in currently routed or dispersed units) / (initial number of men in the army). So if there is only one unit of initially 242 light archers that is currently routed out of an army of 11 units gathering 4127 men at the start of the game, the % of currently routed ...
