Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Since I realise you all want to know, heres the situation in Britain. The anglo-pictish alliance are about to remove all other influences before settling down to the inevitable centuries of peace ... map.jpg Uh oh, did someone's invasion not go quite according to plan? My bet is his scallywags have...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

That's quite strange given the fact that no Maurya army ever encountered neither an Antigonid host nor a single skirmisher unit or at least a straggler or a wayfarer that lost his track in the East ... :roll: Niiiiiice try buddy, but we both know that an Antigonid army landed at the southernmost re...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

The Antigonids have a whole genre of epic poetry dedicated to their heroic victories over the massive hordes of Mauryans and Saka that tried to invade Persia. That's quite strange given the fact that no Maurya army ever encountered neither an Antigonid host nor a single skirmisher unit or at least ...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

You can't blame me for trying to spice up your game that has been all about Palestina for the past month or so. Actually it hasn't...... It's just the stuff in public has been .....there has been a lot of action on the Seleucid/Mayryan/Saka front as well as in and around Italy....(The diplomatic sh...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

True, if your goal is winning, i. e. highest legacy score, then you're probably on the right track to just pile up resources and defend existing territory in order to avoid being seen as enemy that everyone needs to ally to defeat. Though perhaps the war will happen sooner rather than later when ot...

Thanks, Geffalrus!

Only turn 34 :shock:
Geffalrus likes his Antigonids to peak early :D

What is really interesting however is the dynamic between the Seleucids and the Antigonids..........given both want to win how long will they continue with their alliance of convenience........?

Re: Antigonids - Am I reading it right?

Sorry, don't mean this to besmirch anyone who's played the antigonids and used the workaround, frankly I don't really mind if you do until they fix it as it would be almost impossible to regulate a house rule on this, and trying to would probably just start an online litigation process in the forum...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Could you guys put up some more maps, please? Looks like you are having fun, I am wondering how it looks. My excuse is technological ignorance but those who have the ability to screenshot may be hamstrung in that the fog of war means you can see borders but not armies in lands away from their own, ...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

I should really post in here. Saka has accepted a peace treaty from the Selucids, as with the death of our allies, there is just to much land to the south to take. We will seek other, more peaceful, westernly options for expansion. (sorry Bactria, you were just in the way....) If you are still inte...

Re: Newbie AAR - Grand Campaign 310 BCE

A little different from WITP-AE? Have you ever played Civilization? That is where I learned to build up the infrastructure before going to war. I seriously would not use successful tactics in Civ as a guide to Empires. You will get crippled by decadence if you expand the speed you can do in Civ.

I think only Morbio is left though he did warn us that he has some previously made less important commitments to his wife like having a holiday in Greece. Hence the slight delay, I guess.

Ah.....understood.

That sounds fine. As you can see I have already made my turn so when it comes back to me I shall do that. Note you will need to let the Egyptian troops leave Jerusalem before moving in or you risk instigating a battle with them which would not be wise. If you are adjacent it may be better to enter ...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Congratulations are apparently due to the Saka.

Now at peace with the Seleucids having conducted a very successful campaign against Bactria. Impressive stuff.
