Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Mike's points are well taken and well said. He has presented numbers but most of us, myself included, approach the RNG debate from gut feeling based on game experience. Despite being presented with evidence, opinions based on a notion that something isn't right are hard to change. (like the current...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

"We have no plans to change the amount of randomness in the game." Absolutely agree!! Having played wargames as long as I have, nothing really surpises me about "dice rolls". Like the time the Gardner gun jammed 3 times in a row and the Dervish...you get the idea. But this kind of thing does happen...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

I can't help but go back to my TT FOG experience on this since cohesion loss for a flank attack is just an integral part of the game. Maybe it is easier to achieve in the PC game because of the smaller unit footprint. It is a balance though because hitting infantry in the flank should be devastating...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Dare I suggest that part of the problem might lie in the fact the game doesn't model professional armies terribly well. For the most part, the game deals with a collection of individual units, which might be apporpriate to an army of Gallic warband, but less apporpriate to an army like a late Repub...

Division C

edb1815 Arab (North Africa) 1000-1160 w/ Byzantine allies defeated Doyley50 Viking 900-1049: 58%-22%


Good game. The Arab foot held out just long enough for the Arab and Byzantine cavalry to cave in a flank. Good use of the mounted Huscarls by Doyley.

Re: Poll on new "Allies" feature

I would like it to be possible to choose an ally that may change in each game. This way one can make up for deficiencies in an army vs a variety of opponents. Do you think this is doable? Possible make a selection of 2 allies to choose from up front as another option. Although I would note that som...

Re: Field of Glory II - The Wolves have arrived

So I need back rank archers for late roman infantry units. For late roman campaign you should play the stilicho's,not the 3rd century crisis.But if you just wanna meet this situation I suggest you should just start a custom battle between the late roman(313-378ad's list,you play the romans) and sar...

Re: Field of Glory II - The Wolves have arrived

Most of the time I'm in campaign and custom battles against AI,the main cavalry army's AI(like sarmatians) mostly just DON'T charge when facing the late roman infantry units so don't say that "they can get out of position easily when they charge".And rough terrains?You don't have those "providentia...

Re: Field of Glory II - The Wolves have arrived

If you're facing the horse archers then you don't charge,they will keep shooting to make heavy losses of your infantry,you have to do this,especially when they got large numbers.And if you're facing lancers,most of times they just don't charge and await yours late infantry charge to them,take a cus...

But fog1 and 2 are not TT games... No but both are based on the TT game, which where the rear rank bowmen as a POA factor comes from.
