Re: Late Antiquity; winners post your results here . . .

Division B

devoncop (Moorish 350AD) drew with NikiforosFokas (Sassanid 477)........41-51

(Moorish losses being 51)

A complex 3D chess game that only the destruction of most of the ferociously effective Sassanid Cavalry prevented from being a quick Sassanid win.

Thanks to my opponent.

(2-2)

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...
