I would just make a list of people you would like to play and PM them. Asking to play a match. Negotiate points armies etc. That would solve your problem. I did not play league this time because you have to play 2 many games in to short a time. It was becoming work, not fun for me. I may go back to ...

New Map system means inspired generals a must.

With the new map system I find that I take Inspired generals more and more. Terrain is such an important part of this game and can make or break a lot of the DAG armies.

I have not either, but I have been noting after my turn when I submit a turn, I see unit X has passed an anarchy test. I assume if they fail it, they will move and I wont be able to move them the next turn.

I think improving the AI's setup troop selection would go a long way to improving single player. Just look at it does with grouping troop types and where it puts them. This isn't easy. No AI programming is, but that would help a lot.

They contain new lists, new terrain, new maps, and scenarios. Sometimes new unit types. The new rules apply to all the older expansions and the base version as well as the new expansion.

Post patch 1.50 patch reinstall procedure.

What is the current installation procedure post patch 1.50? Do we just install the 1.50 LTR installer and add all our serial numbers? Or do we install FOG 1.0 then patch using 1.50? I have the original fog and have all the expansions. I am purchasing a new PC and was wondering what the recommend pro...

I use either always evade or never evade. I never know for sure what my horse archers or LT's will do with the middle option, since it changes a bit with each patch.

The 2 armies that are in FOG dag were in ror. Could they be put in both places so we can use them in open challenge matches in period. As opposed to using them against all lists?

As cothyso said, this is not about loading, but about placement. This was not addressed in 1.5.1.

Probably going over new ground. Most all pc games thinks it takes to long to come up with some kind of balanced terrain setup feature because it will add 2 or 3 turns of back and forth before you can start playing. I think that is part of the story. The rest is how much time and money on the technic...

By the end of the 100 years war which the french won, crossbows set up defensively with good kill zones were the equal of the longbow in effectiveness. Some of that may have been to attrition in the English ranks. I think some of you are buying into the legend of the longbow, which embellishes their...

Also, horde armies are not all barbarian armies. Some the versions of the seleucid, the hycannus the 2nd list are trained. There are many medium foot list that can field over 50 bp at 500 points.

The small difference in factors unfortunately does not jive with the point system. You pay a lot of points for super troopers (Some of them are mandatory as well). That is one of the reasons that horde armies work well. It really forces you to take a balanced force. You can also drop only 1 moral le...

It really depends on your period interests. I agree with deeter. If you can buy 1 then either ROR or IF. If you can buy 2, get both of them unless your have a high interest in the High Medieval period. Then get SOA. If the crusades floats your boat, then S&S.

I played DBA online for a year or 2 and it was a lot of fun. The biggest issue the number of units limited to 12 and due do contractual issues it was never changed. The only program changes were making the maps prettier. (Cosmetic changes) This game is much better. The Dev's are constantly making im...

The Richard the first list can have a lot of BP's too. Evade moves are different, so herding will be more of a challenge.

76mm this is a context question, were the foot in questions touching a general? Were the in command? An easy solution to this would be to allow the general to set up his heavy foot spear in defensive or offensive mode.

Sword and Scimitar observations

I started my first SNS game last night and I had 28 BP's and my opponent had 32 at 500 points. The unit costs are very expensive. I did not see any "Horde" armies, but I have not looked at all the lists in detail. The crusader lists have a moderate number of knights and the byzantine and eastern lis...

If you bought it from matrix there is an alternate installer you can download if you registered your serial numbers. If you have your serial numbers, you can register with matrix today and download it.
