Re: Late Antiquity; winners post your results here . . .

Division D rs2excelsior (Byzantine) beat GeneralKostas (Frankish) 63-52 I have to admit, I miscalculated in the deployment. I saw Frankish and I was expecting lancers--but I was thinking about later Frankish lists and was instead met by a mainly warband force, backed up by lancers and archers. The f...

Re: Things we learned the hard way.

It isn't that archers have no melee weapons, just that they have no particular capabilities. Combined with being unarmored, this means they get chewed on in melee--but even with backup weapons (daggers, clubs, and the like) and next to no armor, they could in theory charge in when necessary. A flank...

Re: Classical Antiquity: arrange your matches here . . .

Hey, just wanted to point out that my match with Questar17 appears to have been entered as the result against SawyerK instead. My Classical Antiquity match against SawyerK is still ongoing.

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

Divison D rs2excelsior (Roman) defeated Questar17 (Carthaginian with Syracusan ally) 62-55 Another blood-soaked battlefield with the Romans clinging to victory by their fingertips. Once again a stream separated the opponents. Neither side's heavy infantry seemed too willing to advance at first, thou...

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

Division D rs2excelsior (Roman) beat cromlechi (Egyptian) 61-51 A tough battle to the end, with Roman quality up against Egyptian quantity. The battlefield was split by a stream, with a large, rough hill dominating the center of the Egyptian position. The Roman legionnaires and elephants deployed on...

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

Div D SLancaster (Indo-Greek 175 BC-10 AD with Indian 500 BC- 319 AD allies) defeated rs2excelsior (Roman 105-25 BC). 64-47 . The quality of the Roman troops made it very tough at the start. Most of my centre line was crumbling around me. Fortunately, a nice flanking move with spears and elephants ...

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

Division D rs2excelsior (Roman) beat GeneralKostas (Lysmachid) 54-29. After suffering defeats in Carthage and Thrace, the legion was eager to redeem itself against Alexander's successor. Initially, the Romans deployed in a steep, narrow valley, with medium infantry covering the rough hilltops on eit...

Re: Things we learned the hard way.

Something I'm learning the hard way in the current Digital League season... Lining up in the "triplex acies" and pitching headlong into the enemy line as the Romans, trusting to your pila, gladii, and troop quality might work against the AI... but it ain't gonna cut it against a player. All those ch...

Great report Geffalrus, are you a writer? Bloody battle, a lot of emotion and fun I received from it, probably you deserved the victory but the fate decided for another result. Non-professionally. I find it's a good way to add extra spice to things I enjoy.........like gaming and ancient history. T...

Re: Late Antiquity; winners post your results here . . .

Division D rs2excelsior (Byzantine) beat Ulysisgrunt (Kingdom of Soissons) 64-47 The two armies meet on a fairly open map with a few patches of rough ground, very good ground for the Byzantine lancers. A small force of Byzantine infantry and archers held the left flank, intending to pin that wing in...

Re: Idle, should players be auto kicked from the game?

I can confirm, my MP game is one of the ones with a bunch of idle players (about half), and I have submitted a turn when the ready player count was at around 7/15 and had the turn immediately process.

Re: Client states

Annexation isn't an option, it happens naturally over time. IIRC a client state has a chance of giving you a region if it borders 3 regions you already own, or 1 if it's an objective for you. That might have changed, though. The only client state I managed to get in my most recent Rome game so far w...

Re: Neutral AI invading besieged province

That issue predates this patch--from my experience it's a bit less common now, although I don't know if that is coincidence or if something has changed. It is frustrating--I think the AI is assaulting the weakened garrison (or the game is giving them priority if the city falls normally, for some rea...

Re: Late Antiquity; winners post your results here . . .

Division D rs2excelsior (Byzantines) beat Bluefin (Alan) 48-21 A map that wasn't particularly suited to the cavalry armies which met there, with the center dominated by a deep stream flanked by hills, the left a river and a marsh, and forests between the deployment area and the bit of open ground on...
