Re: Things we learned the hard way.

Apparently cavalry were not really as useful as they were depicted in nearly every preceding war game ever produced. Try out a cavalry-heavy army (especially one that uses a lot of lancers). I played a Byzantine army this season in the Digital League, learned a lot about how cavalry works. Lancers ...

Re: Zombies are coming to town, in this Field of Glory 2 Mod

An Imperial Roman legion, responding to reports of a slave uprising, reported an approaching mob of rabble just as dusk fell. Despite being fatigued from the day's march, the legion formed for battle, auxiliaries taking a position at the edge of a rough terrain, steep hill, and the main body of legi...

Re: Difference in Army Size When Playing Multiplayer

When you're setting up a single player match, you can click "advanced options" to see (and edit) the exact point allocations to each side. SP does give the AI extra points compared to the player, or what a MP opponent would have.

Re: Late Antiquity; winners post your results here . . .

Division D rs2excelsior (Byzantine) beat phoyle3290 (Lombard) 66-43. A fairly open map, with large patches of rough ground all across. The battle developed in two parts.

Division D rs2excelsior (Roman) beat bomber23 (Syracusan) 45-16 The field was fairly open, which favored the Roman legions. A single unit of Thureophoroi posted on rough ground on a hilltop and the Roman cavalry screened the right flank, while the main body crashed into the Syracusan right. Despite ...

Re: Late Antiquity; winners post your results here . . .

Division D rs2excelsior (Byzantine) beat GeneralKostas (Frankish) 63-52 I have to admit, I miscalculated in the deployment. I saw Frankish and I was expecting lancers--but I was thinking about later Frankish lists and was instead met by a mainly warband force, backed up by lancers and archers. The f...

Re: Things we learned the hard way.

It isn't that archers have no melee weapons, just that they have no particular capabilities. Combined with being unarmored, this means they get chewed on in melee--but even with backup weapons (daggers, clubs, and the like) and next to no armor, they could in theory charge in when necessary. A flank...
