Field of Glory: Empires Challenge #2 – Carthage

Post by Daniele » Thu May 02, 2019 12:47 pm

With the Challenge #1, you have witnessed the birth of Rome and its military power in Italy. Now, it’s time to see what one of its first mortal enemies can do, on a bigger scale.

Welcome to the Challenge #2 – Carthage!

This time the Challenge goal will be different. While in the first one you had to focus mostly on the military aspect of the game, this challenge adds a new layer of complexity (and fun!).

Carthage was renown to be a very wealthy civilization, establishing colonies in many Mediterranean regions and creating a successful trade network. Its defense was guaranteed by a powerful navy and a semi-standing mercenary army.

To better reflect this historical situation, the Challenge #2 is shaped more on the economic element of the game.



Challenge #2: Try to amass 7500 money in your treasury while reaching at least 20 regions in less than 50 turns and avoiding to be in the last tier in the progress & decadence chart.

Nation Available: Carthage

Turns: 50

Map: All playable

Mechanics and features: All active

Progress and Decadence: Stay in the 1st and 2nd Tier

Nice !!

This will be really interesting . Hopefully we will see some players seeing the difference between this game's mechanics and many others where it is just a race to blob as quickly as possible :D

The hype train is running.

I enjoyed watching the first challenge and I'd like to see the second challenge, but I think I'll wait to the release in order to discover by myself the different regions, units, factions, etc.

I live close to Sagunto, and playing this faction for me is a must 8)

That seemed worryingly easy ?

You only took 25 of the 50 allotted turns ?

I see Saguntum region is not well placed yet (should be in Sucro region). Happy to see more nations in comparison with the initial map from months ago: Gothones and Burgundi in the north, Brigantes in Britain, Parisii y Venitii in France, another nation north of Rethia, etc.

Edit: 80 playable nations :mrgreen: That's great to know.

I would urge anyone worried about whether this is a deep strategy game or not to watch the Dastactic stream on You Tube of his attempt at this challenge.

He got into terrible difficulties trying to take out Syracuse by basing his supply for his invading navy and armies on Melita (Malta) which was not producing enough food (and had not stockpiled food) to do so.

The descriptions of the trade and supply systems in the game in this stream show both the design depth and the replayability given that building chains are not identical from game to game for each province.

It rather puts Imperator Rome's system (and I am actually enjoying Imperator for what it is) to shame.

I am a little disappointed by the small number of challenge 2 videos. There were a lot more for the first challenge. Only found DasTactic and Freelance Gaming so far. Both are excellent with each taking a different strategy. Thanks to DasTactic, I am really beginning to understand the nuts and bolts of the game (much deeper than I first thought). Not being a German speaker, it is more difficult to understand the thoughts behind Freelance Gamings's decisions. Non the less, enjoying both series. Would love to see Gray Hunter's game. Hopefully there are more out there that will soon be put on YouTube.
