Re: A Fascinating Series of Events

We called it the quinquiremus formation. Genious we thought! Problem is that it was an abject military failure, not scoring that first hit against the enemy. :oops: Score one to annals of lost history, but more on that later. But let's back up...how did we get to the experimental quiquiremus? A coup...

A Fascinating Series of Events

I like to think of myself as an innovator, and I have commonly thought: why not try a new military technique to eclipse the phalanx. So Archimedes and I got together and came up with this:

1.06.8 beta comments

I have had some time to go over the 1.06.8 beta and I find it outstanding! I have not had any detectable 'technical' issues to date, and I'm really impressed at the continued nuances that have been added. All the tweaks/adjustments are great, but In particular I find the relationship change between ...

No issues, thanks for the information Pocus. :D At least we know any MP game we start is at our own risk.

Beta and Ongoing MP

Will a 1.06.8 Beta version multiplayer game be able to be converted to the official 1.07 version when it comes out? In other words I want to start a multiplayer game, but I don't want to start a large game and then have to re-start in a couple weeks. I believe the 1.06.x beta versions are on a separ...

Re: Bug or WAD

That is correct, the first region was unwalled. And the assault was not performed in the second region as ordered. I will email you the file. On a related note, I'm routinely seeing the AI move in to a region, assault and take the region, then continue movement in to another region. Is this WAD? I h...

Re: Bug or WAD

First off, sorry but something happened to that one picture... :? Thanks Loki! Well I knew that an enemy force could pushback/prevent your force from entering a region, and that makes total sense. This example seems less intuitive, because my stationary army fought and defeated the enemy army in one...

Let's play bug or WAD! :lol: Case 1: Army given movement orders and is able to move 2 regions in the same turn. First region can overrun an unprotected town, then orders are given to end movement by assaulting the fort at the destination region. During the action phase the army fights in region 1, a...

Oops :oops: nevermind... Great catch and thank you Loki. I never use Retaliate so I didn't think about checking it. But the button was indeed activated, and was clearly the issue.

Re: Various Comments

Lot of sound remarks, I would not deny that. They fall in 3 categories: (1) quite legit and I would like to do them. (2) legit but not given priority because the team has limited 'manpower' and (3) contextual to a nation or differing depending of the player (for the UI, some players prefer one way,...

Apparent Bug

I'm at war with Lycia and I'm attacking multiple provinces in the same turn. One of my armies enter Lycaonia, fights a battle and wins, and takes the region. Later in the turn another army of mine enters in Sangarious as the Lycian army moves out avoiding combat with my army moving in. My army fight...

Pocus, I have a list of comments after additional play testing and reflection from the holiday. Anyone, feel free to correct me or debate any of the following comments: UI/QoL Please streamline the process of making diplomatic requests. I think the process can be accomplished with a few less clicks....

War Goals

I have a simple procedural suggestion for war making. When a faction declares war they use the diplomatic panel to also state their initial war goals/cassus belli (using the current peace terms). Notice I said "initial", so the proposal counter-proposal system that currently exists can alter the ter...

I'll make some notes on the perceived too high costs of some clauses and the necessity of a more pressing peace. I feel it will be hard to come with numbers that work all the time though!
Thank you, definitely understand about the numbers not always working.

Re: Diplomacy Open Beta

I really like what you are adding to the game and your dedication to it. Pretty awsome work until now. I really like the ambitions you are adding to nation like Armenia. Just I have a proposition to add : adding governors to provinces and loyalty to them and general. In the Ancient world and even u...

Re: Comments on peace treaties and other deals

Overall I would like to express my delight on the overall concepts of this patch. This is how I would imagine diplomacy should work in a game like Empires. :D This appears to be a perfect fit, and I appreciate all the team's additional work and listening to your audience! Now to some business: I thi...

Re: Comments on peace treaties and other deals

Southern Hunter, I concur 100% in your remarks 1. I havn't determined if it costs me anything to provide them my provincial troops, though i will go back and re-read the forum on this and do more trials. 2. and 3. are the same issue in my POV. Bottom line is the thresholds for acceptance don't seem ...

I ran in to this exact same error twice. Pocus, do you have the file/information you need at this point? If not I can try and find my file.
