Re: Spam Armies

The Numidians' deployment of masses of light javelin horse is historical... though probably not enjoyable to be on the receiving end of, especially if you don't have the right army composition to deal with. It's the same thing as fighting Parthians, really. Right but they are allies it is not a Num...

Re: Spam Armies

I don't think you have any regular cavalry? I mean.. wouldn't a 'real' Classical army have a little bit of cavalry and not just a swarm of javelin cavalry? This is why it seems quite gamey and not so historical or enjoyable. Most FoG 2 armies can only field 3-4 javelin cavalry units max. I just thin...

Spam Armies

I am playing a game right now and my opponent has brought 10 javelin cavalry and he has 6-7 skirmisher units. It just seems a bit gamey to me. I play a lot of Total War games and in the Rome Total War multiplayer games you had a set amount of units that you could take (like max 4 javelin cav or some...

Re: Rising Falcon DLC coming May 21

Right.. a poster above is talking about Hittites and the Sea Peoples.. which is what we would expect in the next FoG 2 DLC if it went backwards. Rise of Persia does have this period covered as you say.

Re: Medium Foot Rebalance Discussion

If there is any change to medium infantry and them not getting the flank attack bonus on heavies then I do think it should just be for irregular spearmen and Brythonics as Pete says... Thureophoroi and Thracians need all the help they can get!

Re: Velites and Peltasts

Everyone sets up their armies before you go to the map No they don't. I mean your army composition is set.. you can't change it once you see what the map is like! Yes, I need more skirmishers now to get the enemy off that hill! On a side note.. I am starting to play more games with 50 turns. I am p...

Re: Velites and Peltasts

You don’t get the chance to add units once you get to the map.. You have x amount of skirmishers and that is that. What I mean is that if skirmishers are cheap, you can field most of the available. If they are expensive, then you don't dare to field more for fear that you don't have enough line uni...

Re: Velites and Peltasts

I prefer cheap skirmishers. Indeed, and would still be able to have them, except for Romans in a narrow period from 219-106 BC (The 280-220 BC Romans have normal light javelinmen). What I am concerning is the stalemate of the game. One side camping on the slope waiting for the opponent to attack, o...

Re: Medium Foot Rebalance Discussion

Overall, I think the game is fairly well balanced. Most armies can beat any other army especially with a competent commander. I understand that there will always be some tension between traditionalists favouring the historical precedents and the pure wargamers. You have to be very careful because if...

Re: Medium Foot Rebalance Discussion

Also, to be clear, that list has not been updated with the latest Digital League stats. If I look at seasons 1-7 combined army statistics then the numbers are different..

Perhaps it is for seasons 1-5 or something. Updates and patches have since changed elements of the game!

Re: Medium Foot Rebalance Discussion

I am not sure that there is an issue.. I would have to play with some armies and see how they go. Which factions do you think are medium infantry armies? When I look at the Digital League stats going up to Season 7 then factions like Thracia and Spain are just average. Bunny always says that he hate...

Re: Velites and Peltasts

Well, I was in support of the change when it was Peltasts like Thracian and Greek Peltasts. Then I realised that it was going to include Velites for the Roman army. The Romans are already quite overpowered and this change will make them stronger, I think. Maybe just upgrade Peltasts only? Maybe limi...

I assume you are talking about Custom Battles. In Epic Battles the generals are assigned by the scenario designer. In Custom Battles: It isn't random at all, unless you are playing Auto force selection. If you have any cavalry on each wing at the end of Force Selection, a general will be automatica...
