Re: The development of firearms and proximity to nomads

The carbines are probably not matchlocks. This is an example of a Mongolian snaplock (crude flint lock). Though the one pictures is a modern piece, the technology was in use during the game’s timeline. Take note that Tibetan’s are still using matchlocks for hunting these days. https://www.thefirearm...

Re: The development of firearms and proximity to nomads

+1 What Snuggles said. #1 don’t forget that the Chinese employed gunpowder differently. Their firearms may be crude, but the army fielded a lot of artillery. More than contemporary Europeans. #2 is a problem when you force a set-piece confrontation involving horse armies. In reality, they’ll do hit ...

Re: 500 AD global campaign - Year 512 battles are up

It’s certainly better for the Han to fight under Han generals and using Han tactics as opposed to having them fight under Northern Dynasty generals who treat them badly and are not good at infantry tactics. I’m eagerly awaiting for the Fubing troops to be available. So what’s happening to this campa...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

Seems like we're all restating things, so I guess I'll do that as well. My view on this is that a crucial aspect of this RNG discussion is unit and army design. We've talked a lot about the example of the massive warband army vs. another. We've discussed elsewhere about the possibility of increasin...

Re: When do you dismount lancers?

I haven’t played a lot of these lists but I would dismount if the terrain is not good for cavalry. Or maybe when the opponent does not have a lot of horses. Lancers are good as anti-cavalry but not good against infantry.

Re: Question on FOG 2 - possibly new

Holy smoke so in Empires your performance in previous tactical (FOG 2) battles is cumulative and your strategic movement and placement of forces (Empires) is also reflected in the tactical combat (FOG 2).. , Empires sounds incredible. Thank you. There is indeed a link if you want to play both games...

Re: Question on FOG 2 - possibly new

You don’t need FOG2 to play Empires. Empires is just like Europa Universalis (though not real time). It has the option of playing out the battles in FOG2 but not necessary. FOG2 has its own campaign system. Yes the units are carried over and get more better. But you can also play single historical o...

Re: Wokou Pirates

They have the reputation of conducting fierce charges. One thing to note, since we are fielding large armies of thousands of men in the game, the Wokou army ends up having a lot more men than historical due to the points system. This in turn sort of enhances their effectiveness. But individual units...

Re: Downloading Community Created Scenarios

1. The editor doesnt seem to contain many of the units. For example, I wanted to create a peasant uprising campaign but couldnt find ikko ikki units or peasant mobs. Ikko-Ikki units are available to Side 1 only. To switch sides, click the single flag button a few times (top row). 2. the editor is n...

Re: Charge cavalry too weak

Do we want a wedge formation in the game? I found lancer cavalry to be effective during impact, then break off for another impact phase next turn. Being stuck in melee is not desireable. Maybe a wedge formation can be implemented to increase the chance of “bouncing”, and hopefully to the rear of the...

If this were the case the best cavalry tactic would be to give cavalrymen copious amounts of alcohol and blind their horses so neither feels danger,
In fact you're telling a damn historical truth here, without realizing it, pal. :D :D

Re: Charge cavalry too weak

I imagine Medium infantry not needing to hold close order formation. And success in their tactics is not dependent solely on working together with the person behind them. They will engage in individual combat instead. It sounds like "warrior". :D Another unit type in game. Ah your right got confuse...
