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...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

We shouldn't be worried about what armour the HW unit has. If both are "protected" and one has HW and one doesn't, then the guys with HW *should* have an advantage here. Why? (Historical evidence not gut feeling) I am not quite sure what evidence you need other than the progression of weapons used ...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

Maybe the Thracian armour could be reduced from Protected to Some-Armour. They do have shields but the Rhomphaia would have to be used two handed for best effect. With the system and values I suggested it would leave then at 2.5 POA disadvantage vs hoplites. >>Lightly-Protected(25) HW vs Protected(...

Re: Please don't make me come and get you.

There seems to be some confusion about the reason my post. It is not about losing to these tactics. I won both games shown (another reason to take me up on my offer). The issue is the severe annoyance of hunting down someone while racing the clock since it took half the game to get to contact. You a...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

A reduction instead of cancellation could be good, though it might require changing some unit costs. I think one of the main items of importance is making sure that, in a clash between two equally armored units in which only one has heavy weapon, that that unit still gets some benefit from wielding...
