Re: Mounted Breaking off from elephants

I have a vague recollection that Moderate Disorder is the equivalent of Disrupted, and Severe Disorder (I think there is such a thing) is the equivalent of Fragmented, in each case including for combat and cohesion check purposes. But I don't recall if I read that in the manual, here on the forum, o...

Re: Mounted Breaking off from elephants

According to the game manual there are no penalties in the Combat or Cohesion Test tables for Slight Disorder or Moderate Disorder only for Disorder so in fact they are fighting as if Steady when it comes to penalties. Do the tables in the manual mean to include these other lesser states of disorde...

Re: Higher Ground POA

Yes I have the same issue with pike and when one of them goes they make a big dent. I have been trying them again as I was going to use a pike army in the upcoming DL but the practice games have put me off them once again. I have posted on this subject before and have also been told I'm "unlucky". ...

Re: Higher Ground POA

That is interesting. Why do you think that is that phalanxes (and pikes?) double drop repeatedly and often? Do they stand out in this regard? I don't know why, but that is my experience over hundreds of games--I see fresh phalanxes double-drop very, very often. In the game I'm playing now out of fi...

Re: Higher Ground POA

I've seen veteran muslim spearmen double drop from disrupted to routing after taking a flank charge from lancers on more than one occasion, so it's definitely possible. Yeah, but that includes an auto-drop from the flank attack, so not sure if it "counts" as a double-drop. But how is it that Muslim...

Re: Higher Ground POA

You tell that to my hoplites who thought it was a magnificently dominant position. Yes it was apparently 0.16% and it happened twice in succession. hmmm, my worst result was four double-drops in a row, and 6 of 7 in the same turn, with contiguous units. While these combats were straight up warband ...

Re: Newbie

Hover over a unit and I think the small general icon will be there. Just click on it to add a general to your unit. You can add 4 generals to units in the deployment phase. You can only reassign leaders to units in the same group, so before moving a leader you might need to add the unit to the lead...

Re: No stalemates allowed?

Historical battle have no turn limits, so you have to play them out. I once played a historical battle that went for 70 turns before I could convince the other player to call a draw (actually, I just told him that I was not going to play any more). I think this needs to be fixed...there should be *s...

Light foot flank attack?

Haven't played much lately, wanted to double-check something...is a light foot unit that is not already engaged supposed to drop a level if it is hit in the flank? similarly, if a light foot unit is attacked from a diagonal square, and is then attacked again in the same turn from one of the adjacent...

So I took a look...apparently it implements simplified rules and does not allow, for instance, creating your own scenarios. That's a deal-breaker for me. Oh well...

Re: Naval integration

I've always been amazed that there has never been (AFAIK) a computer adaptation of the old AH board game Wooden Ships and Iron Men. I don't even like naval stuff but played a lot of that game back in my youth.

Re: Naval integration

Mare Nostrvm is a valiant attempt at galley warfare and has a lot of good ideas, but some questionable design decisions. The biggest flaw is the inclusion of ships occupying half hexes. These are nearly impossible to ram or board. Yup, this was also my main issue with it...I think I played two scen...

Cannot scroll right with mouse

I've just reinstalled the game on a new computer and have an annoying problem: While I can scroll the map to the left by moving the mouse to the left map edge, when I try to scroll right by moving the mouse to the right mouse edge, there is no scrolling and in fact the mouse cursor freezes for a mom...

Patches cumulative?

I've got a new computer and have to re-install FOG2...I've been putting it off because of the many patches and DLCs. Are any of the patches cumulative, or do I need to install all of them individually? There must be 15 of them, so that will be quite a chore...
