Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

So vocal minorities "won the vote for common man and women"....they "abolished slavery and established rights in many areas. You agree with these measures so are happy to give vocal minorities the credit for bringing them about. Where vocal minorities "influenced directions we might not approve of" ...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Fair enough. I thought he was saying more than a small minority were unhappy. In which case your mod and similar efforts on behalf of such folk are an ideal way to address such concerns. My impression was he was trying to persuade RBS to change the mechanics of a core game that most appear very happ...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Winning a game when your opponent has outmanoeuvered you and has done evrerything necessary to deserve a win, is a problem. Losing a game similarly, is a problem. Coming away from the game have invested time and effort and not had an enjoyable experience is a problem. Being so fed up with it that y...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

I'm largely happy with the state of RNG in the game. That said, rallies probably on the whole benefit horde armies more than smaller high quality forces, as the latter have a higher proportion of auto-broken units amongst the routed. Perhaps a modest change, such as routers dispersing after 4 turns...

Division B

devoncop (Cimmerian with Thracian allies) beat Swuul (Spartan 550BC with Corinthian allies) by 53% to 28%.

A game that swung both ways for a number of turns that was saved for the Cimmerians by some rough terrain and their mobility in the end game.
Thanks to my opponent.

Re: Defeating all cavalry armies - Question

Lancers are a dangerous nuisance, but more often than not it is the horse-archers who are the real PITA against an infantry army. Much of Ludendorfs advice above works also when dealing with horse archers, but you may want to extrapolate it a bit further. Remember that all archers, including horse ...
