Re: I've struggled hard to like this game...

But that personal preference is often derived from a desire to play competitively. I found the same fundamental division in tabletop-land. Possibly, competitive PBEM-focused rulesets (or those rulesets which get used in that way, whether the authors intended that outcome or not) need to just accept ...

Re: Classical Antiquity: winners post your results here . . .

Division C

Zardoz02 (Lysimachid 320-281 BC) beat SLancaster (Macedonians 320-261 BC) 74-37.

The Lysimachids had a perfect defensive position on a central hill. Thanks to SLancaster for fighting it out; I probably would have tried for a draw in his position.

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

In Division A where the majority of players have proven records. If games are played where both armies just collide simultaneously on some axis, someone did something very wrong. Grrrrr....

Re: Classical Antiquity: winners post your results here . . .

Division C The game ran to the full number of turns leaving Zardoz02 (Lysimachid 320-281 BC) ahead of cromlechi (Seleucids 166-125 BC) at 44-50. More-or-less evenly matched pike armies with the Lysimachid pikes gaining terrain advantage on a hill but still facing difficulties countering the Seleucid...

Re: Autobreak loss levels

Can we guestimate the % levels for the basic quality categories elite/superior/average/raw? The manual says "average quality unit will autobreak if it falls below about 50%" so it is different to the tabletop rules. How different, sorta...

Autobreak loss levels

Is there a defined set of percentage losses for the various quality levels in this game or is it more dynamic? In the tabletop rules there is a simple table that tells me e.g. that superior BGs autobreak at > 50% loss. Should I expect to find the same simple table in this game? It doesn't seem to be...

Shooty scooty Hun cavalry

Does anybody have a simple tactical doctrine for pinning and destroying Hun bow cavalry? I've just played an interesting Romans vs Huns game where I see that, to win, the Romans not only have to survive the arrow storm, but also knock out a significant number of cav units to get a win. Trouble is wh...

Re: Pursuing through a primary ZOC.

4) Although ignoring primary ZoC sometimes lets pursuers into advantageous positions, their uncontrolled pursuit is more likely to put them in a dangerous position, vulnerable to flank attacks and pinning. The dangerous one is where a cavalry unit pursues an evading light unit through a battle line...

Pursuing through a primary ZOC.

Simple question: why is this allowed if the primary ZOC restricts other types of movement? :(

Re: Threatened flank

That's clear. So basically the definition is: "A BG of non-skirmishers has a threatened flank if there are enemy non-skirmishers currently in charge reach and capable of charging the BG's flank/rear in the next turn." One edge case: if the BG is in a BUA or anything that eliminates the negative effe...

Threatened flank

The -1 CT modifier for "threatened flank" in the tabletop rules comes with a bit of baggage viz: * doesn't apply to skirmishers * "page 136 - definitions of "threatened flank" "Any part of the BG is less than six MUs away from ANY table edge" Do these limitations apply in the PC game as well?
