Re: Combat power and combat rating of military units

The game's battle system is not a simple "rock-paper-scissors" mini game. The battles have a lot of nuance and can demand a deep appreciation to be mastered.

Re: Combat power and combat rating of military units

You can check out both of these yourself. The combat power of the stack is the sum of all the individual units' combat power in the stack. Just click on the stack. While you press Ctrl, cursor over each unit to see that unit's stats. In combat, just pause the battle and cursor over the units to see ...

The Picts short AAR

I built up my army while expanding agriculture. During this time, the regions around my faction all became objectives. I then conquered the four other regions in my starting Province. I formed the Province and continued to develop. Britonae was my only threat, so I gave them money gifts until their ...

Re: Very frustrated...

You posted that you were playing as Rome, so are your troops well-trained with the best gear? Are you using the best ranged units for the terrain? One huge stack only has an advantage if the battle goes to several combat phases. Split your force into several stacks and attack with each in the same t...

I take the screenshot from the game and convert it to a .jpg format with MS Paint. This makes it small enough to post. You can attach three screenshots in one post.

Re: What Good is Retaliate?

Originally, this allowed you to attack a faction or an independent/rebel region, without acquiring a piece of crap. I pointed out in a post that this could be used so you gain a slave and also train a stack of units every turn if the region was rebel. I believe that Pocus had the devs change that, s...

Re: Any chance of Quill testing Field of Glory: Empires ?

I don't play most of the games for which he has done videos. I watched his CK2 video and I was not impressed. He basically took all of the canned advice from the site and made it into his video. Pretty lame.

Re: Thracia.

From the manual: "The damage inflicted in the pursuit phase is related to the flanking rating of each unit. Thus heavy infantry and phalanxes will inflict relatively few losses at this stage but cavalry and skirmishers will be very effective." Light Cavalry have a flanking modifier of 2. Both foot s...

Re: Thracia.

I get slingers and light cavalry. I would recommend the LC as they are cheaper to maintain and are better at pursuit damage after the battle.
