On a fairly open battlefield, the Carthaginian ally cavalry played havoc with the Roman flanks. In the climax of the battle, a lone Syracusan veteran hopli...

Re: Classical Antiquity: winners post your results here . . .

Division A Geffalrus (Antigonids) defeats MikeC_81 (Romans and Greeks) 42-12 For context, I learned how to play FoG2 a year(?) or so ago by watching Mike's youtube video where he dismantled a Seleucid pike player with his Roman army. So I was just massively nervous the whole time. Anyway, the map f...

MikeC_81 (Division A) and fikabo (Division C) both with 2 wins this week giving them a very good chance to win their respective divisions. :D
LoL, still gotta find a way to beat Geffalrus and pick up a win between Triarii and Harvey. I wouldn't call that a good chance. :lol:

Re: What do you hope to see added before Fog II ends?

The ability to type in the army name in full or partially to filter the lists during game creation would be much appreciated it.

The ability to select multiple units and assign them to command groups during deployment would also be nice.

Re: Moving through a ZOC

One thing I will say is that whatever changes we might consider to the ZOC rules, the rules absolutely will not be changed to allow a unit to attack the flank or rear of an enemy unit directly to its front while in the primary ZOC of another enemy unit. This is because the original primary purpose ...

Re: Public Beta 1.5.22

Cataphracts definitely need their previous artificial point cost reduction removed. All of their previous issues have now been addressed to the point where they are easily one of the best buys in their bracket. I know their having 50 Swordsmen POA vs infantry was already the case since WatG. So you...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

As for your current solution idea, Richard, I like it a lot. It is inelegant to explain, but the ending balance seems far more logical for certain matchups than we have or would have under the current systems. I'm looking forward to seeing how well it works in action. Now I just have to code it so ...

Re: Hillside Texture Glitch

There is a decent chance for a fix coming in the next set of Radeon drivers coming this December. This affects, to my knowledge, all GPUs based on the latest Navi architecture cards. So basically all 5xxx models released within the past 6 months. AMD cards using the older Polaris chips should be una...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

And I say HW in Late Medieval is not as good as HW in antiquity age to smash armor. How do you know that though? How do you define "not as good as?" Here is what I know. Falxs did not come to dominate the Classical era. The Romans didn't immediately switch weapons when they encountered the Thracian...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

ILate Medieval Polearm against armor - very poorly. The prevalent plate armor worn by DISMOUNTED knights can defend Halberd. But Halberd has the advantage against MOUNTED knight as it can hook the rider off. This is not remotely close to being true. If you were at Crecy or Verneuil as a dismounted ...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

This is not true. A small blade fixed to a long pole allows the user the ability to leverage the length of the polearm for superior angular momentum and impart as much kinetic force as a heavier weapon of a shorter length. In fact, it is preferable from a weapon design standpoint to increase the di...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

The Dane Axe has a surprisingly thin blade that makes it lighter/easier to use, but makes it less effective against heavy armor because you're now missing the added weight and strength of that metal. So, no, it wasn't developed as an anti-armor weapon. The reach of the weapon, combined with the fac...
