Re: A question about trading

My understanding is also that getting a resource from internal trading nets more benefit than getting it produced in the same province. Noone seems to have disputed this so far. In general that's correct, with the one wrinkle being a foreign power supplier could end up snagging the trade deal inste...

Re: Dacian palisades

Yeah so I think if your 1/1 wall gets reduced to a 0/1, there will still be another 1/1 wall, leaving the region still at 1/1?

Re: Take Region Now or Wait Until Objective??

Possibly? Although the next objective in the chain you don't control should get selected instead.

Re: Diplomacy

Really enjoying my first game, but finding the diplomacy system limited. How do I improve the relations with other powers? I can send cash, but what else? Every other option like cooperation is reciprocal. I can't offer trading advantage, I can't offer slaves, or a province. In my game I am produci...

Re: Dacian palisades

I believe they are counted as separate defensive structures. So if someone reduces you Dacian fortress from 2 to 0 and you have a Palisade, you’ll still have 1 walls from the not yet reduced Palisade.

Re: Issue with Rebellions

And regarding moving the capital back - I guess I you mean disband the Senate building? Then I can manually construct it wherever I want? Yes, the way the mechanic works here is, it will take you 3 turns to deconstruct your senate in Nicaea. At the end of that period, a new capital will appear in t...

Re: Does the AI cheat?

Regarding the buildings, I don't think his point was so much that you lack choice in buildings. I think it is the lack of transparency in where buildings head you, a sort of tech tree where if you see that your goal is to accomplish X, you have an idea how to work towards X. But I don't take this c...

Re: Can 2 armies merge and attack one region in the same turn?

Re: Please set the turn time to one season per a turn

Sieges of port cities could last up to eight turns during this time period:

This one could have actually gone longer, but for Rome eventually getting naval superiority.
