Re: Any chance of a DLC covering the period before 680 BC?

Swifter than Eagles is lower down my list of preferred releases ( looking forward to Swords and Scimitars most of all ) but I would still get it. Belisarius surprised me with how much I enjoy commanding the Picts, Scots and Welsh. In fact I wonder how many others feel as I do - release DLC for this ...

Re: Tides of Conquest Punic Wars campaign, singleplayer

Nijis, somehow I completely missed this thread. You've put a lot of thought into the whole system and it seems to work well. Just a quick question though, I'm trying to get my head around the difficulty levels vs army strength... We heal only 10% of our strength in a province with rebels, so any bat...

Welcome to Field of Glory 2!

WAD is an abbreviation for "working as designed", in other words, there is nothing wrong :)

Re: Suggestion: First Turn Bidding

Yes, good idea. A group of table-top players I was in used a system where we could bid points for the rights to place a piece of terrain, or to go first, or to choose which side of the table to start on, etc. It made things very interesting.

Re: I'm done with this game!

So what you are seeing is not units miraculously passing multiple cohesion tests in a turn, in defiance of probability, but a simulation of one single cohesion test. Multiple tests are taken using the same random score, with only the single worst result counting. That's a really interesting explana...

Re: Field of Glory II Age of Belisarius announced

I'm especially interested in hearing how the dismounting (and re-mounting) will work and what units will be able to do it (and if it will be retrofitted for some older units). Me too. I'm probably wrong but I suspect it will be a case of selecting a unit as either mounted or dismounted at the start...

Re: Sanctus Reach - Horrors of the Warp is announced!

Then no more content for game??? base all in a specific campaign sounds more like a big mistake because limit a lot the content they can release... and to be fair the campaign-lore part of game is very very poor. The problem for us players is GamesWorkshop control the licensing. And they control ex...

Agreed about the crusades/holy wars. Either way, I look forward to all the expansions, I can't really think of anything that I wouldn't like to have.

Third Expansion

Testing for the third expansion opened a while ago, unfortunately I didn't see that it was for the steam version, also.

Are we allowed to know which armies/eras the upcoming expansion covers? Just curious - I'll buy it anyway, but it would be nice to know what it is I'm looking forward to ;)

It seems this list is a bit like the whispering game one played as a kid, in which the message gets changed on the way from the first participant to the last. Yes, between people not knowing alphabetical order, and somehow copying an earlier version of the list, it gets pretty muddled. I think this...
