Re: Any chance for real new gameplay features (not just new units) in the future ?

I don’t believe that 90% of players only play sp. Mp battles are the key element of any wargame. One reason being that the AI is usually so poor compared to human players. Sp mode and the campaigns should still be improved, though. There are people only really interested in campaigns. This isn't a ...

Re: Suggestions for Improvements

5. Larger armies In reply to Pete mentioning in another thread that some players didn’t seem to stick with the game I think larger armies would be one attraction. In Sanctus Reach you can play 2000 point games, 5000 point games and go all the way up to 10000 point games. I actually prefer the smalle...

Re: Any chance for real new gameplay features (not just new units) in the future ?

I just want to say that these type of PC tactical wargames attract players who only play mp battles. Bunny and I are two of them. In other games of a similar ilk like Chaos Reborn and Sanctus Reach there were plenty of players who only played mp battles. I think it is wrong to say that most players ...

Re: Cannae: Countering a wide Roman formation.

There is a lot of Carthaginian cavalry to fight which you need to take care of. The battle was really tight until near the end. It might have been 60% to 54% or so I forget the exact number.

Re: Draws . . .

I have two opposing experiences with draws or likely to be draws in the league. Let me just say there are draws and draws. I will post full commentary and pics once the games are over!

Re: Draws . . .

After saying that the devil offers restarts I do have a situation in one of my league games where my opponent is sitting up on a 300 metre hill with practically his entire army.. I am moving around but with only 24 turns I may not be able to make a lot of progress. I will post a pic when the battle ...

Re: Cannae: Countering a wide Roman formation.

I lost as Rome. The Carthaginian infantry was in the end too strong for me. I forget who I played but the mass of Carthaginian cavalry did well in killing and diverting troops away from the main line.

Suggestions for Improvements

Great game but a number of things bug me a bit. I have mentioned a few before but will put everything in a list now! 1. Camera The camera is a real annoyance for me. Units will sometimes fight in the corner of my screen and then it moves on before I know what has happened. I am using the little casu...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Let’s just all relax. Restarts are part of the rules for this season. We have discussed the main issues and everyone can make their own minds up about it. Some players will just state clearly at the beginning of a battle that they don’t accept restarts and that is up to them. Other players may well ...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

The thing is, sometimes you get a situation where if either side advances, it's suicide. Rather than agree a boring stalemate or force one player to resign themselves to playing at a steep disadvantage, you just agree another map where advancing doesn't mean certain doom. You mean not make it rando...
