Re: Maccabees in FOG 2

I can't really contribute to this discussion, but being able to hear well sourced and well argued positions on historical compositions is one of the reasons I read these types of forums, so I am enjoying this discussion. I will add my 2 cents that I think Elite status is too generous, and is mostly ...

Re: Multiplayer

I say I am a bit let down that we don't get new lists for use in multiplayer. For example, buying winter war should let you play against other countries in that year, and get for access to the Finns, buying morning Sun should get you Nationalist Chinese to fight in multiplayer. Would like to see tha...

Re: How to play as Sarmatian?

From that other thread where I realized pikes and spears LOSE their POA bonus in impact if they are attacking mounted shock troops. Heavy theory crafting here. Buy all the unarmored noble lancers you can, fill out the rest with cheap medium javelins. Any money remaining goes towards skirmishers. Avo...

Re: Over-powered Romans

I thought balance might be better than that of FOG1, especially since the superior swordsman ability of legions that made mincemeat of every other nation's swordsmen thankfully is gone. And I will give the edge to disciplined heavy infantry versus lancers. I don't even think polearms are required (f...

Re: Generals

Tangentially related, but I wish FOG 2 had the duelling generals from Sengoku. I know this wasn't historical, but for entertainment value there is little that can beat forcing the CIC and his elite unit to retreat because my subgeneral with 8 duelling skill engaged and incapacitated the CIC. While I...

Re: Flank march?

It would be cool to have an intentional flank March options. Like set a few tiles on the left or right of the map where the player can place units there during deployment phase. This was done in the Takeda game. You mean Magitech's Takeda series? I remember that. In deployment you chose your genera...

pot luck :D Yeah, I know I should just bite the bullet and go potluck to understand all lists, and I know Turks/ Chinese were very situational (you need rough or trees or at the minimum some none open ground), and I know these (at least the Turks, I think Chinese lists are plenty good in SJ) are no...

Re: Coming in from Pike and Shot/ Sengoku Jidai, suggest arm

Only single player so far. I mainly read the manual then picked the list closest to what I want, then played a couple of battles. I did try Arabs yesterday, and I like that list better. Arabs get massed archers (medium infantry shooters), decent cavalry (camels on one side to beeline towards enemy c...

Coming in from Pike and Shot/ Sengoku Jidai, suggest armies

Hi Ancients Wargamers, Can someone suggest a few army lists that are similar to the lists I've played before? I generally like medium infantry shooty armies, with cavalry (not exclusively lights) that can shoot and charge in a pinch. Ideally the shooty infantry has some punch in melee and don't die ...

Re: Teppo Light Foot vs Medium Foot

I find it odd that in later time periods light foot teppo are replaced with medium foot/warrior teppo. Gameplay wise, I can't think of any reason why this would be done. The light foot can evade charges and do not get disordered in forests, while suffering less from return fire by virtue of being l...

Re: Why attack with troops?

Wow I did not know that ambush works if the Bad guys are already next to your troops. I assumed there was mutual detection. This feels kinda buggy. I think ambush should only work if the bad guys move into the ambush radius. If there are already in it it should not trigger and should actually give a...

Hi Agrippa/Kevin, Thanks for the tips, display capture does seem to work and capture Sengoku Jidai's video. From what I am reading, several games (both Slitherine and non Slitherine) conflict with the way OBS is capturing image (I have several other games that don't seem to work) which means that th...

Troubleshooting Live Streaming Issues for Sengoku Jidai

I thought I might do some live streams of Sengoku Jidai games. I am using the OBS software. Long story short, I can't seem to capture the image, resulting in me recording a black screen, although I have captured the Audio. I haven't done any real troubleshooting yet but. 1.

Re: Uncle Sam wants YOU to join the beta!

I saw the feature list and I am glad for the inclusion of a long campaign. Vietnam 65 felt very short (if 1 turn == 1 week as my guess), the player character only spent one tour in the area. While accurate and reflects historical experience (and historical complaints that US support is often very fl...

Re: Changes to Chinese lists in Mandate of Heaven?

Hopefully the Iron Troops can get the Chinese something tanky. I find the lack of close combat capabilities to...

Re: Generals

The duel thing really boggled my mind at first, especially with inter-nation warfare. Are they not speaking different languages, or are we assuming eveyone speaks or at least reads Chinese(Hanzi education)? Plus many nations don't have that hand-to-hand combat == honor idea. And then I read a bit mo...
