Re: Field of Glory: Empires - The Challenge has been accepted

I know players have mentioned but its not the same as looking at one I just want to see how the minor details work through FoG2 like general stats(+2 attack), frontage, units joining battle, how are the units scale down or up. The battle alone is not significant. Fair enough. Frontage is not carrie...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires - The Challenge has been accepted

Still NO battles resolved through FoG2.... such a shame (are you trying to hide something?) Players have mentioned they have resolved some battles without problems in the FOG2 system. As we are all familiar with the FOG2 mechanics to see a long battle played out in the FOG2 system would teach us no...

Re: Unit availability question

Thanks, that is very clear.

Are there any qualitative advantage for units like Cretan Archers over Velites for example if the battle is played out on the strategic map within the Empires system rather than exported to FoG2 ?

Unit availability question

Whilst I understand that certain units will be region specific such as Cretan Archers, in the case of more generic units are they available to all factions ? I ask this because in the excellent Dastactic You Tube series in the conquer Italy challenge he built several archery ranges in different prov...

Re: Problem of Byzantine complexity.....

They have six of each but the Byzantine Cav is largely armoured and to get close enough to start causing meaningful casualties exposes them to be ridden down and routed. The Byzantine massed archers are also pretty deadly to skirmishers and the bow armed lancers and flankers also cause a lot of dama...

Re: AI on the campaign map

yes, I've actually been completely beaten by the AI in some tests, in others mere survival is all you can hope for in a serious war. I have had epic test games where simply just hanging in was all I could do or had to constantly march to face off a new enemy - genuinely 'just one more turn' stuff. ...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #6 - Culture and Decadence

The decadence and culture mechanisms seem likely to give good feel and lots of possible mechanisms. Does the system encompass the long stability of Sparta under a rather totalitarian approach focused on maintaining itself as a static society and an active power.power? Are the successful tools of em...

Thanks for another well run event. See you guys in June

Indeed so. Great tournament. Thanks to my opponents.

The traditional devoncop place in the middle of Division B in splendid mediocrity has once again been reserved needless to say for next season :D

Problem of Byzantine complexity.....

OK..... You are trying to combat Byzantines.....mobile,Armoured archer/Lancer combinations of good quality, a bit of decent heavy infantry (Armoured) and a couple of massed archers.... You have masses of medium protected infantry including impact foot..... Lots of archer and javelin foot skirmishers...

Wouldn't it be awesome to tie it in to Rise of Prussia. I'd love that.
I have never got into the Rise of Pussia style AGEOD engine personally but the new strategic level Empires system could definitely work for me in the Rise of Prussia era.

Re: Winners post your results here . . .

Round 2 Devoncop (Jewish revolt) beat Tresantes (Pyrrhic) 40% to 6% The rocky positions on the Jewish left were further aided by a small stream running across much of the left and centre of the battlefield and the Pyrrhic forces came to grief trying to force a crossing against Zealot resistance.

Re: Field of Glory: Empires - Challenge 1 with DasTactic

I think you need to hear in mind that the "blobbing" is entirely a result of what is in effect a suicidal race to conquest mode in this particular challenge. The concentration on just building a killer stack would be lethal in a proper campaign as in the Dastactic playthrough, before he has even suc...
