Phants excel vs cavalry, and they can disrupt opposing pikes and run over impact infantry.
So basically it's best to target cavalry, pikes, and impact foot?
Not pikes.

Re: Cant install game - disc error

Hi. I don't know the answer to this myself, but I have already notified support after reading your post on the STEAM forum.

However, you should email support@slitherine.co.uk for one to one help on this problem.

Re: Scenario bug Frigidas

One more question for you please. Both armies in the battle of Frigidus are Roman. When creating a multiplayer game it isn't easily discernible which side is which from the Player Side selection area. https://i.postimg.cc/CK8PYx3G/mp-frigidus.png My question is, is it possible to edit the MP file t...

Re: Scenario bug Frigidas

This is not a bug. As I say, they are not supposed to match. The single player scenarios are effectively two different scenarios, balanced to suit the difficulty settings. On higher difficulty settings the player must choose which units to take from a number of "unfixed" units. In one of those scena...

Re: Saka at the Battle of Marathon

All of the Sparabara and Immortals are “axemen”. They were all armed with sagaris, which is a single handed axe with a relatively small head. We treat them as swordsmen For POA purposes.

They were certainly not shock infantry axemen. They were archers, with sagaris as a sidearm.

Re: Scenario bug Frigidas

Just found 5 more units that don't match up between the two files They aren't supposed to match exactly. They are balanced to allow the difficulty settings to work. Like all ancient battles we do not have exact numbers or exact OOBs, so we have wriggle room for such adjustments without being unhist...

Re: Unable to re-assign a general

The only thing I can suggest is that you try to make this happen in a SP game, save it, ZIP the save and attach it here.

You would also need to list the steps you took to reproduce the issue.

We can't properly investigate anomalies in MP games, as we can't access the game instance to test it.

Re: No raw legions for 3rd century Romans?

Playing a campaign with them to try out the new clibanarii, and I noticed you can't buy raw troops. They are the only Roman list where this seems to be the case. Could they be added? Some cheap troops are useful for a list with pricey infantry and it seems appropriate for the Romans to have highly ...

Re: Unable to re-assign a general

If you moved generals during deployment, the game won't let you move generals again on the first turn. The pop-up tool should say that the general has already moved this turn. I've never encountered this problem during SP games with both current v. 1.5.30 and 1.5.31 (or previous ones). If that is a...

Re: Unable to re-assign a general

Insufficient data I fear. Did the crossed out general icon show any tooltip? If something like that happens again, please save the game and we can take a look. Not sure Richard I will save the game if it happens again. Would it help saving it in my next turn? No, and if it is MP you can't send me t...

Do Elephants cause any Elephant-unique damage to nearby units (whether enemy or friendly) when they break and subsequently rout? Or is that reflected by the cohesion tests two squares wide upon the Elephants breaking?
The latter.

How do you determine when a player will have to put units into garrisons? Does a player have to had put units into a garrison in order to be able to get reinforcements if you choose a reinforcement option? It is mostly if the subsequent battle is set to be smaller than the last. Can also sometimes ...

In each round, all players will be playing on the same randomly generated map for both games.
So all 75 games, plus the 75 rematches, in a round will be played on the same map?
Yes.
