Re: Skirmishers and command

I have attached skirmishers to a generals command for rally purposes. In early game before the main armies clash, I have pulled back disrupted skirmishers and attached a general to see if I can rally it back up. Even in other points during the game, I have done the same if the situation is appropria...

Skirmishers and command

I have been wondering about light troops and command. In a custom game, skirmishers appear grouped as independent commands without a general. So since they are not assigned to a general, do they suffer the loss of the free 45 degree turn? I assume not. If I decide to a assign a skirmisher to a gener...

Re: Mercenary/provincial unit upkeep cost

It would be helpful to see the total maintenance cost of an army listed on the army panel. Also would be helpful to see the maintenance cost of each unit in the unit panel when hovering over the unit in the army panel.

Median Medium Infantry

I thought I would go back and play a nostaligic matchup of Assyrians vs Medians. I remember the Medians as having lots of nice MI spearmen but what I don't remember is them being below average morale. So have they always been below average morale or were they tweaked at some point and I just missed ...

Re: Update required??

Ok, get up this morning and I see there is a new patch announced. Downloaded and it works. I know things happen but I wasted a lot of time yesterday trying to figure out what was wrong. First thing I checked was whether there was a new patch announced. And I also checked my account for a new patch. ...

Re: Update required??

Are right, this afternoon, I uninstalled and reinstalled the game several times. Then updated to 1.3.0.0. Still when I attempt to enter multiplayer, I first get the message "a new version of the game is available". And then, I cannot get into multiplayer. Then I went to my other computer which also ...

Update required??

I just tried to log in to multiplayer and received the message that I must update to the latest version. I have version 1.3.0.0 which is the latest version as far as I know and I have been playing multiplayer with it since it was released. Any idea what is going on?

Re: Achaemenid Persians and Medians

I was wondering how he managed to record word for word the many long conversations. Actually a pretty good novel. So maybe I need to look up Herodotos.

Re: Achaemenid Persians and Medians

And here is another reference to Lancers.

"And they say that Artacamas, the king of Greater Phrygia, is coming at the head of 8000 horse and not fewer than 40,000 lancers and peltasts."

Since the lancers are not horse, they must be spears.

Re: Achaemenid Persians and Medians

Xenophon references 30,000 Persians composed of 10,000 targeteers, 10,000 bows and 10,000 slingers supporting the Medes. Anybody know if the targeteers are sword and shield men? I think they are as in another section he describes men armed with shield and sword or scimitar. I am guessing they are me...

Re: Achaemenid Persians and Medians

Actually I have some time and started going through Xenophon's description of the Cyrus Lydian campaign. Very interesting. I noticed that the Persians used heavy chariots at Thymbra.

Re: Achaemenid Persians and Medians

I am trying to visualize this. So I assume if a Sparabara type unit decided to attack and melee, a thin line of spearmen would push forward while the bowmen would simply hang back. Almost like a firefight with bows until one side or the other wavers and then a quick charge to make them run? What if ...

Achaemenid Persians and Medians

With the release of the new FOG Empires DLC featuring the Persian Empire, I noticed in the notes that the Persian empire should be seen as a joint Persian and Median dynasty. The FOG2 notes on the Persians also state that the Median Empire was transformed into the Persian Empire. So I started wonder...

MP game disappeared

I signed up as Babylonia with a new DLC MP game a few days back. I believe it was titled, "Welcome to Persia" or something similiar. The game was filling up nicely. A few minutes ago, I checked to see the status and the game was no longer listed in the "Accept Challenge" game page but when I checked...
