Re: Biblical section experiment - can you spare 10 minutes to help?

My picks would be: Assyrian 681-609 BC Hebrew 681-586 BC Lydian 687-551 BC Egyptian 664-571 BC Achaemenid Persian 545-481 BC I was very excited about the new Biblical format, just a bit too slow on the draw to get a spot (I think the last one had just been taken when I checked the forums!). Glad to ...

Re: MP Notification Suggestion/Question

Oh boy, this question comes up every so often and I make the same comment: When I get email notifications, SOME of them display my opponents username and turn, others do not. (RBS for example, Is identified in my email notifications, I do not know if I’m identified to RBs though) I then guess that ...

The team are currently working on migrating games to the new PBEM3 system, and the above is on the list for inclusion.
Awesome, that sounds perfect. Glad to hear it’s in the works, thanks!

MP Notification Suggestion/Question

Would it be possible to add some identifier to the email alerts for when a MP game on a random map has started/ended/advanced to a new turn? Even just the armies would be helpful. When you're in something like the DL and have 6-10 games going all on random maps, you can get some idea from the turn n...

Re: Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here . . .

Division D rs2excelsior (German 888-932 AD) beat Doyley50 (Viking 900-1049 AD) 68-42 The map was pretty open, with a river heavily restricting the field. The German shieldwall deployed with their left flank resting on the river and a small village breaking up the Vikings' advance, and a strong wing ...

If Fragmented or Disrupted, 40% chace of testing per turn.
Is this chance changed at all based on the unit being engaged, shot at, etc? i.e. does a fragmented unit sitting behind the lines have a better chance to get a rally attempt than a fragmented unit in melee?

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

I actually do like the map screenshots. The terrain looks more... fleshed out? There’s more detail than the featureless green fields and grayish rough terrain. Will there be an allies feature in FOG2:M, and if so, will there be any changes to how it works in ancients? I wouldn’t mind seeing allies t...

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

I am a bit disappointed it will be an entirely new base game (I wanted to play around with Roman legions against medieval knights!), but the screenshots look great and I am excited for what y'all will be able to do without having to fit the DLC into FOG2's (I suppose FOG2: Ancients now) framework!

Many thanks for a wonderfully entertaining reports! Thanks! I'm getting thrashed on the battlefield, might as well have a bit of fun as I'm reporting my defeats, haha.

Re: TYME: The Year of Many Emperors - Tournament I

I have two to report: Forces of Augustus Pompeius Flatulus defeated the German invasion in Germania 43-11. Amalaric son of Amalaric led his warriors to meet the Romans by a riverbank, using the river to secure the left flank while the lightly armed warbands attempted to rush forward into the woods o...

Re: MP Turns Not Loading as Normal

The first game I loaded today did fine. The second gave me an error when loading my opponent's turn - it gave me the dialog that I could abandon the turn and try again and the warning that it would be logged (despite it being me downloading the enemy turn, not uploading mine). A second attempt worke...

Re: Chaos Tourney IV

I am not a fan of paired matches, but as a number of players seem interested in this option what I will do next season is open a division, or more, for those who wish to play paired matches. These would be of between 4-7 players. for 3-6 mirrored matches for a total of 6-12 games for the season. Th...

Re: I have a problem with the panic ripple

On the topic of panic - I do not find it at all out of place that targeting weaker units to break them is a valid strategy. It makes plenty of sense to me - why smash your face into the teeth of the enemy’s best Tripp’s when you can instead deal with them after their support has been routed and they...

Thanks again for organizing, Karvon! An enjoyable tournament as always, even if I did struggle a bit in the top division! On the topic of mirror matches, I personally think it’s fine as it is. You definitely get some imbalanced matches, but as some folks have already said, making the best of it is p...
