What files for saved games are needed?

Re: Heavy Infantry or Go Home

Re: the East- everything in the end is a somewhat luck driven ( game wise) crap shoot, for example Crassus got smoked by an average boob named Surena with almost entirely horse archers. Crassus had a decent amount of cavalry what he didnt have was Generalship. Trajan and Julian to name 2 had success...

Re: Resilient Gauls?

I don't think this would be realistic at all... a round is a rather sketchy time concept to begin with and a melee are not directly reflecting a continuous fight either. There are certainly enough space in two tiles to account for the temporary retirement of two fighting formation. I even thing mos...

Re: Resilient Gauls?

The Roman way of rotating troops would be intrinsic to the units represented in game and are part of the quality trait. This. I want to be clear on what that signifies; is it that you have already built it into the game as part of the 'quality trait'? There fore you see this as superfluous? ( withd...

Re: Resilient Gauls?

im not talking about getting away on short distance, abut about ability to disengage from fight, with another unit taking your place.

Yes, they are 'hecka' resilient.....the melees imho last 2-3 rd.s to long. I assume some of us there have done reading, Livy, Polybius, Plutcarch, Caesar, Vegetius et al....
