If your logged in , you can click on your user name in the upper right, select "Board Preferences", then "Edit Global Settings" then "User Can Contact me by Email" yes or no.... Im...

Re: Multiplayer emails

I'd like to suggest a small change to email notifications for multiplayer games. At the moment theres no way to determine which game emails are for. With multiple games on the go it would be nice to see which opponent is sending the turn to see if there is a priority to get the turn done soon or le...

Re: Come and talk with the devs on the Discord server of Fantasy General II

[Thanks, but what exactly IS Discord, a voice-only chatroom or a proper forum with screenshots and stuff, or what? Yeah, from what I've seen so far, about 20 years ago we would've called this a "chat room". Twitter 2.0 :lol: 35 years ago it would have been called “party line”, or “phone a friend” h...

Re: Fantasy General II is announced!

Interestingly, but I don’t see any naval units!!

Hopefully this means we’ll see Star General 2 someday;)

Re: Teutonic Knights

I play the Extra Nations mod a lot(it's quite good), and recently have been playing the historical enemies of the Teutonic Knights. I am struggling a bit to find an effective strategy and an effective army mix to counter the pretty robust Teutons. Their pike blocks(although only a thousand strong) ...

Re: Why no WWG(Warwagons) in P&S?

Because we deemed (in the light of hindsight) that they are better represented as field fortifications rather than as a sort of medieval tank. Fair enough...although a medieval tank would be kind of cool... Cheers Alex I'm sure you have seen DaVincis sketches of "tanks" . Fully armoured hull studde...

Hey Alex, sorry if that came across as some critique of your generalship. What I was trying to express was i find bad luck lurks when you are most confounded and then rash.

Re: Why is pike POA dependent on casualties?

There is a cap on combat strength ie the “number of men fighting”. That cap is 480( for infantry). The overlap melee bonus ie a bigger unit versus a smaller only comes into play when one or both units are smaller than the cap , the bigger unit gets a size bonus up to the size diffence but only count...

Re: Hidden Enemy Troops Rallying

If we remove the fanfare, it just promotes people watching the score really closely and keeping detailed notes on where routed units left so you can figure out where they rallied with reasonable precision. It would just change it from being unrealistic for everyone, to unrealistic to top players an...

Re: Opportunity Fire

Well, individual units are at a disadvantage individually due to the move and shoot penalty, but yes, they can gang up on one unit. That is more of a problem imho: the central radar directed fire of multiple batteries until target destroyed, move onto the next. :). I doubt many would want this but ...

Re: Opportunity Fire

Will the developers consider in the future to add opportunity fire(like Pike & Shot)to FOG2? Or do you feel this will fundamentally change the dynamic of this game. I find it works quite well in P&S, and thought it might be interesting here. Thoughts? Cheers Alex The big difference is Ammo. And the...

Re: Hidden Enemy Troops Rallying

I voted yes, a hidden unit that rallies from rout is also hidden from his own army and thus if your giving that army the dubious benefit of being more resilient , the other army should at least know the source of why the scoreboard changed!

Re: When do you dismount lancers?

If you play with historical opponents, dismounting some of your lancers can be helpful: 1) in an era of mediocre infantry vs infantry power , some superior offensive spears can be very useful. 2) if you have a bunch of lancers, and your opponent has a bunch of lancers, neither side can easily achiev...
