Re: Poll on decisions

First I would like to say that really like the Decisions, because of the flavor it adds. My recollections and thoughts about the current decisions are generally reflected by the jimwinsor post as well. I will add that there a few decisions that I would like to see a clearer explanation in their effe...

Re: Next update?

Hi Pocus, since your response came just a few hours before 1.06 came out, I wanted to clarify the response. Is there going to be another patch released prior to Christmas that will include diplomacy? Or is 1.06 the patch you are referring to?

Regards,

Re: Avoiding Battle

OK I found the conversation in this thread: https://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=534&t=94189&p=806374#p806448 This was in relation to Intercept Orders but the explanation covers what we are talking about. You all can go and read the whole thread for context, but here is Pocus's response:...

Re: Avoiding Battle

As you can see from Ledo's post I was having a related conversation with Pocus. I will try to find the conversation, but as I recall (and that is always dangerous :lol: ) we discussed some of the finer details. In short I seem to recall his talking how each turn (or impulse) the faction order of mov...

Re: Avoiding Battle

Ludendorf, both armies are moving 4 MP's correct? It is my understanding it is strictly luck at that point, a 50/50 shot they will escape. Happy escaping!

Re: Determining who enters what region.

Perhaps Pocus already has this figured out on how to handle, but as I posted in a different thread why not allow for a "meeting engagement" in a case like this? Both sides could use their attack ratings and other factors would determine who wins or loses instead of who gets picked as the attacker.

Re: Phalanx/Heavies defense/offense ratings

I also like the "took hits" approach for phalanx. I think scouting has merits as well. Though I think one side should have a significantly higher ratio before any advantage was gained, not just a simple majority (i.e. 1 point higher). Along these lines there has been discussion of determining attack...

Re: Intercept Orders

For example: a retreating army moves 2 regions back (movement cost/region=1, so a total of 2 movement used). A pursuing army is given orders moving toward the retreating army 2 regions (also 2 movement used). Based on my understanding of what you have written the pursuer should never catch the retre...

Re: Enemy Fleets/Armies Moving Through Each Other

Great, thank you for the confirmation. I'm at a bit of a loss. :? These things don't come up all the time, but I wanted to start to bring it up in case others were having these issues and could be patched, if there was something I could do, or perhaps there is nothing to do because this game file go...

Re: Sneaking Out of a Besieged City

Ha, I would agree devoncop! :lol: It is good to know that perhaps it appears isolated to this game, OTOH it stinks that it appears only isolated to this game because we are well over 200 turns of an MP game. No mods are in use...unless one of the other players have used them. I can double check with...

Sneaking Out of a Besieged City

OK, we've got another odd situation. Same game, same part of the map as my post about armies passing through each other. I have an army besieging a city with 2 large enemy armies in it, plus the garrison. Both sides are human controlled. This time one of the besieged armies leave the region without ...

Re: Intercept Orders

So how does the process work? Say the enemy retreats in to an undetected region while the pursuer follows. Assuming all forces move in the same impulse they should arrive at the same time. I assume the pursuer then detects the enemy again and tries to pursue further. That hasn’t worked for me yet, t...

Re: Enemy Fleets/Armies Moving Through Each Other

Also a few turns back my army was given orders to move and attack a region, but they were intercepted by the enemy first. The real oddity was that I won the battle yet my army halted with out completing any of its movement orders. Same war against a human controlled force.

Re: Enemy Fleets/Armies Moving Through Each Other

Hi Pocus, what makes the issue double frustrating is that it’s happening in my MP game. So there’s no file to send. I can confirm my interpretation because the enemy force is human controlled and we were both scratching our heads. And just to confirm, there’s never a speed difference between armies ...

Intercept Orders

I have not seen a comprehensive explanation regarding the Intercept movement order. The word intercept appears 2 times from my search of the manual. It basically says you can attempt to intercept a friendly army or an enemy army, but how is it supposed to work exactly? I know *how* to give the order...

Enemy Fleets/Armies Moving Through Each Other

I have encountered this behavior multiple times and with both fleets and armies. The latest instance happened the other night between opposing armies. My interpretation of what I am seeing are 2 opposing armies in regions that are next to each other. They are both given orders to enter the other's r...

no its +1 defend, this is the norm for the master buildings. The exception is the fletcher where you get a bonus on ranged attack.
OK then, problem solved! :lol: Thanks you guys for helping to clear that up.

Re: Stable Master Buff?

Hmm, then there’s a conflict. According to Grognerds Guide it says the stable master gives a +1 attack bonus, but we are getting a defensive bonus. Is the guide incorrect?
