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

I'll just throw in my own little gripe with the cavalry pursuit mechanics - sometimes pursruing cavalry decides that charging elephants in the flank is a great idea. It obviously isn't and most of the time just means that your cavalry gets swiftly destroyed. Any chance it could be addressed in the f...

Re: Unit Costing Anomalies

Veteran Byzantine lancers are decent for their price, it's the basic ones that are overpriced (or underperforming?), imo. Their Above Average (+12.5) quality really hampers them down.

Re: Do you prefer light spear cavalry or lancers?

It depends on what you want your cavalry to do, obviously. Generally speaking, light spears cav makes a good support for your strong infantry line or distraction for superior enemy cavalry, while lancers, vice versa, form the core of your force with infantry as support. Cataphracts are pretty good, ...
