Re: Decadence is ruining this game for me...

I might do another run through as Dacia, I've got some ideas on what to try. Think my priority will be getting that first province, and getting the tribes off my borders, which will be easier said then done. I still like the idea of moving toward the coast and getting a harbor. Think after i get the...

Re: How Do You Grow??

Haven't played Lusitania yet, where do you sit on the legacy/CDR ranking? what turn is it? I'm wondering if the bottom is going to fall out for you with quick expansion, decadence, unrest, wars, money, ect. Make sure the region is worth grabbing, some just flat out aren't worth it and will be like a...

Re: Decadence is ruining this game for me...

I'm playing Dacia - and have done a few times. The gameplay notes for Dacia suggest conquering the neighboring regions, which are held by independent Celtic tribes. Which is fine, and not difficult to accomplish. At the same time, I'm trying to focus on the ones which are set as objectives. I'm con...

Re: Heavy Cavalry Frontage Question

I was thinking about this some more as i play. I imagine the setup would be for SP only as it would slow down MP play, but what about a setup template for each army that the user could set and was changeable as your army units changed. would that work in SP and MP?

Re: Heavy Cavalry Frontage Question

Re: Micromanagement.

This worried me when I was considering buying. Micro in the mid to late game of the 4X genre games just got tedious. Of course it all depends on your level of what is to much. I think the province mechanic will lessen that, and there is the automation ( haven't used that yet) and the fact that the g...

Re: Problems downloading WATG

Pretty much the same story with me, i'm using the Matrix version. I can't play my pbem game because it says there is a newer version. i downloaded the update[via the game updater] and it said there was already a newer version on my machine. The game screen shows i currently have 1.5.3 V10009 install...

Question about MP

I recently purchased Blitzkrieg and was surprised to find that all the scenarios are not available in MP. I've seen the thread with the MP/SP scenarios, but if i buy more DLC does it add any scenarios to MP? Do you have to play SP to unlock them for MP? Another question anyplace to get more skirmish...

Re: Replay freezes

Thanks I'll try your solution. Pretty annoying hearing my stuff being destroyed and not seeing it, let alone remembering what was where. Are they ever going to address it? or is there so few of us that have the problem there just going to ignore it. I bought the whole PC package last sale, is it the...

Through searching i found it had installed to the "C" drive and my install is on the D drive, i wasn't offered a choice of directories on install. OK i delete the folder on the C drive and go to the members ...

Yes The rest seemed to work just fine. i thought the number might relate to battle size i.e very small=1, small=2, medium=3, larg...

Re: new player here

Ditto Randy, No experience with ancients, never a table top gamer and mostly a WW2 gamer. Picked up FOG 2 on a recommendation and don't think i'll regret it. i'm always looking to branch out to other era's. i'm also looking at P/S and J/S for future purchases. Got through the first 2 tutorials OK......
