I think double moves have already effectively shrunk the maps. I would like to see wider maps with a more limited deployment zone. That way you cant setup on an edge, and have a safe flank. I also think that double moves should end for the entire army once you are in charge range of non LF/LH. Then ...

I think the fixed moral level is a problem. Maybe at 25-30 percent losses you start rolling army moral. You have 3 levels of army moral, just like troop moral. If the Army fails a check, then it becomes disordered and all average and below units take a -1 to all cohesion and combat tests. All units ...

Nice idea, but we are all from literally all 4 corners of the globe. There is a timezone issue. I would try to build a friends list of people that will play 4 or 5 turns in a evening.

Ok,

I think breakoffs/retires are one of the weakest points of the FOG PC system. Evades still are somewhat odd as well.

Since you 16 points for a fortified camp, should you not get more points for taking it? Maybe at 50 percent rounded up?

I have played GUSH's rules as well and I dont think they really apply to this period. They were a bit more tactical than FOG. There were subunits inside swiss pike blocks and all kinds of things. They were a renaissance set and cover a much later period. Mounted shock were pretty much supermen. I do...

If we are interested in realistic results, which is what we are all shooting for in one way or another. More realistic battlelines in 1 feature, but also we need to make Alexanders heroics possible, Some of the mongol feint routes possible. The current casualty system occationally allows you to attr...

That is great for Hoplites, Pikes, and Republican Roman, but what about the various mounted armies. The only way they win now is by finding exposed flanks and charging in. Will the point costs for mounted be reduced or will their combat factors increased to compensate for the added infantry cohesion...

Well historically there lots of instances of units folding quickly. In quite a few battle Alexander charged with his elite cav units and broke a flank. This happened quickly. We can't do that now. If casualties are normalized, can we have the artificial constraint of only dropping 2 cohesive levels ...

I have played many other table top rules. In most of them LF moved the same distance as mediums. They just did not have any movement penalty in rough terrain/woods. That would make LF move 3 in this rule set. This should also cut down their evade move and hopefully you could catch them more often. C...

If the casualties are less random, then would something have to be done with missile and melee factors to even it out? I dont have a problem with the casualties. They allow some of the trash armies to attrit the super trooper armies. You dont want everyone playing, Pike lists or Roman lists. So if a...

Well if it get the -1 for unit in rear arc other than LF or LC, then it would probably work. It takes a bit of work to get cav to your rear.

I would say maybe 75 percent skill, 25 percent luck. As an example I would looks at pantherboy, mschund, cothyso and a few others that rarely lose a game. I think patherboy has lost maybe 2 games in the last year. (Both were with him playing numidians which are arguably one of the weakest lists in r...

Pantherboy had to win. He even wins with numidians.

I had a new resignation the other night. Happened after turn 1 against a saleucid army. That is a first.

I would like for them to list each book with a checkmark when issuing challenges. IF, ror, LTR and the 2 fog lists are compatible histoircally more or less.
