Re: 1660+ Horse

SnuggleBunnies, Thanks, that was exactly what I was looking for! If o.k. with you, can I copy and paste this on to a word document on my P.C? So if I'm reading you right, Horse(Shock) are the real primo units whether armored or not? I just played a game of Louis XIV's French vs appropriate Dutch ene...

1660+ Horse

Can anyone be so kind as to give me a primer for the correct use of Horse in the Roi Soleil Era. I've been playing the Italian Wars era and pre-1600 era a lot and horse then is so different from the much later eras. Kind of flummoxed as to their correct usage and match-ups. Any and all tips apprecia...

Much depends on your Dice Roll Alex, roll 1:6, no effect - 6:1, they double drop

Cracking an enemy unit by shooting it to death...

So, I'm not sure if this is a question for RBS or veteran players of this game. I realize that a combination of shooting(lets say with bows or arquebus) and cannon is a great way to crack a units cohesion causing it to drop a level or two. My question is, is there a reasonable way to determine the e...

Wars of the 18th Century using...

...the P&S format. The P&S experience is so well done and so robust, that it seems like a shoe in for the wars of the 18th Century. I figure starting with Frederick the Great's Seven Years War, eventually encompassing all other conflicts of that century.

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

Hey Alex, sorry if that came across as some critique of your generalship. What I was trying to express was i find bad luck lurks when you are most confounded and then rash. I have thrown xtra units into a melee to defy being denied immediate expected results from an enemy hero unit , when I could h...

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

As per the excellent examples about Cataphracts in this thread, Cataphracts performance were 'broken' in FOG1 and continue to be just as 'broken' in FOG2. Imho. But my concern is still with the 'stretching credulity' of fragmented units holding for unreasonable lengths of times, and with such freque...

I'm surprised you actually believe that... The amount of arguments complaints and legion of recurrent threads about RNG and situations exactly as you just described were tenfold in the FOG1 forums than versus what is posted here. Especially as in FOG1 you can order a light foot to "hold" in the fac...

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

This happens all the time, not just once in a while in an occasional game, but many, many times in each and every game, and in many instances, turn after turn in that particular melee. I played a game last night where 3 of my armored Sarmatian Lancers battled a fragmented Bosphoran light foot arche...

Because we deemed (in the light of hindsight) that they are better represented as field fortifications rather than as a sort of medieval tank.
Fair enough...although a medieval tank would be kind of cool...

Why no WWG(Warwagons) in P&S?

I recently came across an old DBA(De Bellis Antiquitatus)extension into the Renaissance period up to the 1800's, where many Eastern European armies of this period had Wwg's in their Oobs. This document had Phil Barker and Richard Bodley Scott's monikers on it, so it seems legit. My question is, why ...

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

As I have explained before, a unit which Fragmented from close combat this turn is not heroically passing multiple cohesion tests from subsequent close combats in the same turn. What is actually happening is that all of the combats are really occurring simultaneously . The game therefore makes the ...

Re: Replay spoiler

HobbesACW, bothers me too, but as this game is so old, I think the developers have moved on, so to speak, when it comes to fixing this and other little niggling issues. Overall P&S is such an outstanding experience, that I just put aside this issue and keep on playing. As for FOG2, no, it's not the ...
