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

Division C edb1815 (Thracian w Antigonid ally) defeated Bluefin (Kappadokian) 43% -13% Bluefin was unlucky on this one. The Kappadokian right flank of mainly Irregular infantry was routed by a mixed force of massed peltasts, cavalry and hoplites supported by skirmishers coming down off a hill. A num...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

Isn't the main point of the Rhomphaia unit to face off against more heavily armored Roman infantry? Maybe in-game but they don't do very well. They first appeared at least a century before the Romans did in their region, around the time that the Thureos came into general use in Hellenistic armies, ...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

Anything to make Rhomphaia less garbage. Worse unit for cost in the game hands down. Loses to significantly cheaper medium foot and still too poor quality/armour to take on any sort of cavalry unless defending on rough terrain or flanking (but again this is just as true of medium foot that cost 10 ...

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

Division C edb1815 (Thracian w/ Antigonid ally) defeated Tresantes (Pyrrhic) 63% - 41% GG to my opponent well played. There was not a lot of rough terrain for the Thracian medium infantry to hide in. Relying on numbers and cavalry to out flank the line of Pyrrhic pike phalanx. IN the early going the...

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

Division C edb1815 Thracian with Antigonid ally defeated Rob123 Roman with Jewish ally 48%-21% This game was closer that it looks. Both armies had strong and weak flanks and ultimately it was a question of whose strong flank would win and exploit first. The Thracians cavalry wing managed to exploit ...

edb1815 (Thracian w Antigonid ally) defeated Dzonvejn (Saka w Seleucid ally) 43%-16%

GG - Well played by my opponent. Several nicely placed hills helped the masses of medium infantry and having an elephant really was key against the cataphracts.

Re: What do you hope to see added before Fog II ends?

I would like to add to the suggestions to continue the DLC mirroring the table top FOG books. In particular the high middle ages - ("Storm of Arrows"), but we do need Biblical additions as well. As far as unit variety for already released DLC I think we have some excellent mods (TT Mod. etc) that se...

Just tried it here. Played through a whole turn in a DL game a rather critical one at that, and then it would not send. :x

youngr (Anglo-Danish with Welsh Ally) had a mutual break vs edb1815 (Rus) 65-64

An exciting game that went to and fro with very little left fighting at the end

Cheers

(2-2)
It was a wild game - well played thanks. First time mutual break in the DL for me!

Re: Please don't make me come and get you.

So my earlier comment was directed to medium infantry army tactics and frankly no I am not having a difficult time with any concept here. Apparently you disagree that a defensive plan is a viable tactic. Looking at your exhibit B that can certainly be a valid tactic by your opponent. Let's take for...

On my new build I have an 250 GB M.2 drive on the MoBo as the C drive with Win 10 and a 500 GB SSD as my game/storage drive with my Steam library. There are plenty of YT videos demonstrating how to move your steam library or non-steam installs as well.

Re: Please don't make me come and get you.

People are conflating two different things. People trying to defend this tactic seem to imply I am some neanderthal who just wants to *hulk smash* and run in a line at each other. But there is a distinction between "clever tactics" and just time-wasting. Let's go back to the game at hand. The yello...
