Re: Pike Phalanx

My MP experience with Phalanx so far :

When I play them : they suck, they get disrupted on impact whatever the odds in my favor and then lose follwing turns.
When I play against them : they are buldozers : they win impact and rout my own units in two-three turns.

Re: Zama - Historical Simulation - Good Joke part 2

Alhtough I have to say I'm very frustrated with my recent rape in Tournament/PBEM to the point I considered ragequitting the wole thing, I think your own rage is quite not as righteous as mine ! If you want a fine simulation, maybe try Europa Barbarorum 2 for Medieval Total War 2 ? That might be the...

Re: Would you be a more active player with a LIVE MP mode ?

After a few swings in Tournament PBEM that turned out to be really disastrous AND *B * O * R * I * N * G* for me. I have taken the decisions : 1) To participate up to the end of the Tournament (I would expect the same of my opponents) 2) No to subscribe in further Tournaments. Pbem is a good thing f...

Re: How to Keep Order in Your Army?

I'm sometimes very happy with not charging my main Phalanx line. Apparently though, the AI should attack it, but does bot dare to. This fixes the enemy and you take very little casualties.

I wonder if sometime Byzantine games would think of a Napoleonic game like this Ancient game? a tactical napoleonic game like FOGII would be great!?

Re: MP possible exploit.

When you create a custom game in MP. Once your opponent has joined and that it's the host turn (yours then), he gets to select his army. I got a crash at that point. When I restarted dthe game, an new map had been generated. So I closed the game to see wether a new map would be generated. it was th...

Re: JC_von_Preussen vs Lapdog666 (Romans vs Seleucids)

Overall, I think lapdog almost knew what he was doing, hehe you 'almost' complimented poor lapdog. I think he was very tactical in setting up that very elaborate ambush, but the defensive plan also give you the initiative by letting you choose where the main fight would take place. Was it hard to d...

Re: The Republic in Crisis Mini Campaign

Nice idea. I'm already engaged in plenty of battles these days (what's more the tournament is coming) so I will not rush to join you for the moment. However, I think a mini-campaign like this should be in the core game, if possible. Pbem or Live MP.

Re: JC_von_Preussen vs Lapdog666 (Romans vs Seleucids)

Overall, I think lapdog almost knew what he was doing, setting a trap fo me. I did not know what I was doing, I only unbalanced my deployment and went all for the phalanges when I could. I must say, the Phalanges broke earlier than what I imagined, and once they did, the legions gained inertia and t...

Re: Would you be a more active player with a LIVE MP mode ?

I think that you asked the wrong question if you are looking to encourage Live MP mode. I would never use it, so I would not be more active, but if having a Live MP mode would attract more (and presumably younger) player then I am all for it. Although I would have agreed with you at first thought, ...

Re: Pyrrhos of Epeiros campaign

Yep, I did the Mithridates campaign and found it to be very, very dull. I was obliterating everyone, but like you said, it's just open battle after open battle, with no real choices in between. I can only think of one actual choice I made, whether to fight enemy A or B; every other part of the camp...
