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

seems crass to complain that the opponent hasn't moved to fight on terrain you favour when you are doing the same thing. If you want the win you have to take the risk or settle for a draw. This is absolutely right. I think the origin of the problem for those like Mike who are unhappy is that there ...

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

If no suggestion on the game rule or the tournament rule is proposed, then the whole thread is pointless. Whining didn't help to improve anything. What we need to think about is that whether there are any possible rules to rule out a-sportsmanship, or I call it dirty players among my RTS friends. I...

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

Such an approach would hugely disadvantage any armies that rely on mobility making them pointless. They would also give huge advantages to heavy infantry armies in most cases and eliminate any finesse in manouvre. I absolutely agree, and I have no problem with the current rules. However there seem ...

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

I am not targetting MikeC81 in any way and I appreciate there are a variety of views on this subject but I thought I would just check what army he is using in Classical Antiquity when upset that his opponent is utilising woods and rough terrain to the maximum......... The answer...... Roman.... Larg...

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

I don't always agree with Pete, (as he will no doubt attest!) but on this one he has nailed it. Cannot disagree with a word of the above contribution.

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

I agree Jagger. I dropped after the AI took a couple of crippling national decisions on my behalf despite never missing a turn. Not acceptable. Hopefully 1.05 has stopped this. I am still inc involved in 8 games which are progressing fine. Folks need to be wary of ascribing motives for the actions o...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Invaded Samaria ? After you supported two Nabatean breaches of the treaty AND broke the treaty yourself by taking Samaria a year early. Took Petra from the Nabateans ? Um, you declared war on me and expect me not to respond? Once you declare war on me, you've told me I have the right to react. Do y...

Re: Phalanx/Heavies defense/offense ratings

You are not the first to feel there is an anomaly here. It to me seems logical that a Phalanx should have the same combat ability it attack and defence for a start. As for a plain terrain bonus I am less sure about that. Plain terrain is regarded as the "default" when combat ratings are applied so i...
