Re: (Army) tech advancement

Having veterans troops is not that straightforward, they have to fight and survive several battles. Being only a participant in a battle gives you a few experience, but being active and even better killing a unit is much better. Veterans when they replace hits can lose some experience, and as their...

Re: (Army) tech advancement

I hope that veterancy is respected, unlike how it has been handled in some comparable games. It occurs in some games that units can be trained at very high levels of veterancy, which is not realistic. In fact, the rate of improvement of training levels is quicker than the generation of veterancy thr...

Re: How do you play heavy artillery ?

"Limbering" artillery sounds nice...for napoleonic field artillery. How do you limber a field-built Trebuchet?

p.s. Like most people here, I think I just avoid it most of the time. It is mostly useless.

Late Roman - Kinda bad?

Late in the Empire the Romans had to cope with cavalry armies and new tactics, so they developed this new kind of infantry with darts, bows, etc. Playing a long campaign with these late Romans, I am struggling to see their attraction. It seems I am constantly outclassed by cavalry armies with a lot ...

Units upgrading with experience lose their name

I have been upgrading (automatically) my Egyptian local pikemen (who start out as Raw) but when they become Regular Pikemen they forget their name. -- Edit: Sometimes! A couple of units have upgraded and lost their name, while 1 has upgraded and KEPT the name. I will have to investigate further to s...

Re: Field of Glory II v1.2.5 major update released!

Can I make the suggestion that the rule "No experience gain if the unit has not suffered casualties" be amended to be "No experience gain if not suffering OR CAUSING casualties"? I have some units that are doing wonderful things on the battlefield, shooting, charging flanks, etc, but do not gain exp...

Re: Legions Triumphant will be out on March, 8th!

Yeah, looks good. I like that Raw troops will become regulars, etc, which was a little anachronistic. "Improved AI" is terse, but always welcome.

Re: Alesia

The scenario is fantastic. Good work. I have always wanted to play Alesia, and this seems a good representation. I think the scale is different to normal, roughly 150 men per figure? I wonder if this changes the results of firing? My engines and archers seemed to be presented with the option of doin...

Campaign Balance

I really like the 'introductory' campaigns that each faction has. They seem to be 'not too hard', generally involving learning how to use the faction, taking a few provinces, building out the troops, etc, and getting completed in a reasonable amount of time. The next step up, and there are 4 or 5 ot...
