Re: Spartacus(Scenario)

Gladiators being one person units. Any developers notes about their use ? Are there special rules for them ? They are not sub commanders, but regular units of 1 man. Facinating.

Re: Field of Glory II Tournament Suggestions

Knock Out keeps the winners interested while the losers don't have to be motivated to play. As they are obliviated and out of the tournament. Yes, half the players are obliviated each round. Life can be cruel sometimes. :wink: It isn't as simple as that. In a conventional knockout tournament the wi...

Re: Whats your Favourite Army and why?

Roman, 219-200 nice balance of units, Hastati/Principes supported by Velites going for an assault make it an army with a solid strategy.

Re: Field of Glory II Tournament Suggestions

Would it be possible to build an automated knock out tournament capable of coping with 64 players minimum? It would also have to be able to cope with an awkward number of entries, say 77, which would involve 13 first round matches and 51 byes giving 64 qualifiers for the second round. Possibly you ...

The best Roman meeting the worst Carthaginian. The number of participants and the number that go to the next ...

Tigranocerta which armies ?

The Tigranocerta scenario in multiplayer does not give the names of the armies involved. Just a minor omission, can you add those names please.

Re: The Republic in Crisis Mini Campaign

After the initial defeat Spartacus army crushed the Romans! The battle was bloody and the advantage swung back and forth. Finally Romans, surrounded by a furious mob, broke and fled. The spirit of freedom was so high among the rebels that day that many of those who were routed in the initial clash ...

Yes, they are. Add to that the insight you collect about an epic battle of history. A list of current win loss ratio of each of the epic battles would make it better to see wich one is the most balanced.

Re: Reward for historical Formation

IMO one of the main historical feature that is not reproduced in this game (and in many if not all games) is that there is no sense (or there is only a little sense) to use more than one line of cohorts. IMO there should be some way to withdraw from melee by infantry units without being routed and ...

Keep seeing people posting that they have trouble with fighting the Indians and keep losing.

Reward for historical Formation

It would be great if troops get a reward for being in the formation they are trained for. Phalanx should get a reward for being in line, both flanks with a friend. Legion should get a reward for being in checkerboard, two friends supporting their back. I think an increase in quality would be an exce...

Re: The Republic in Crisis Mini Campaign

The Romans did meet their Spanish equals but their rebel friends did run as fast as their sandals could bear. The Romans did win round A. The match was fought under good sportmanship.

Re: Sandbox Campaign suggestions

Rome did loose battle after battle but won the war against Hannibal, so I would like the campaign to continue after I loose a battle. If losses are higher as 15% compensate with troops of average or lower quality to fill the ranks after garrison decisions are made. It keeps options open as normal bu...
