Re: RULERS OF IInd CENTURY BC ASIA MINOR

I have pretty much lost the Roman game. Its going to end next turn somewhere around 27-30 percentage points in favour of the Romans. I'll end the tournament 4-1 but with much worse tie breakers than Nik. So unless Lysimachos can score an insane win over Seleucid, looks like the crown goes to Nik!

Re: Rise of ..... campaign

So each player resolves one battle per turn right?

I am suspending my game against the Gauls until next campaign turn atm. If in fact I even get to invade Gaul given the movement scheme

Re: What price victory?

I like winning as much as the next person, but what I really want most from my games is fun . For this, I prefer a close battle with nail-biting moments and turns of the tide. Which is why I was annoyed to accept a game without fully investigating the match up, only to find myslef commanding a palt...

Re: What are the details of the new 5 round 128 player tourn

Doh, got it. I guess I will try to sign up for the next one, see how it goes. Do you know which armies are involved in each round before the tourney starts? Well I am not sure why the announcement isn't up yet for the holiday tournament, but here is the list of battles. This tournament will involve...

Re: Auto-evasion

That is a fine sentiment but is not consistent with the rest of the game layout of information. Ex. Knowledge troop counts in units, knowledge of morale levels, and knowledge of combat percentages. It also is something that can be tested extensively and thus is simply a barrier to newer or more casu...

Re: Fantasy armies

You could probably do generic fantasy without specific reference to franchise specific names like Uruk-hai. But there is so much flavour to explore still in ancients.

Re: RULERS OF IInd CENTURY BC ASIA MINOR

Roman Impact foot is proving to be too much. My previous 4 wins made me arrogant and I pushed way too far forward and ended up sitting in front of a hill with Romans upon it. I am going to have to pull yet another rabbit out my hat if I am to win..... :cry:

Re: Rise of ..... campaign

you just want a shot at payback.

Ok. Bring it :twisted:

Guess me invading Gauls is off the table. I choose Agricultural.

Nik is 3rd on the table so its his move I assume?

Re: Rise of ..... campaign

I'll just invade Gaul to save time then since Klay was kind enough to set up the games.

Re: Pike Phalanx

One thing i noticed with pikemen is the fact they are quite resistant to flank or rear charges.. I think they need to be quite penalized for any such charge a lot more than ordinary units as their main weapons were only presented to the front, while pikemen themselves were only carrying daggers or ...

Re: Rate (categorize) FoG II Armies please!? (CustomMultipla

The proposed rankings are reasonable to me but I would say most of the A tier lists aren't necessarily much better than the B tier lists, but B tier simply have a less straightforward baseline gameplan.

I di think you are selling Pikes and Hoplites short though

Re: Multiplayer - Custom Random Map Open Battle - Balanced G

I don't know if I am an "experienced" player but having played all the single player campaigns, bundles of solitaire custom battles, and completed 25 multiplayer games under my belt, I would highly recommend that any newer player start with and play a lot of the late Roman list (105-25) before worki...

He was the only legal target for you to attack unfortunately as everyone else was already engaged. edit: It is assumed that you want to attack given that attacking gives you the chance to earn a vassal.

Re: RULERS OF IInd CENTURY BC ASIA MINOR

Praise Mars! Several lucky rallies for broken infantry regiments combined with some ignominious tactical flight from the Pontic cavalry from Pergamonic Cataphracts and Elephants was enough to secure a small victory. Pontic takes it 46-60.
