3. Thracian 211-51 BC with: Rhoxolani
Not a legal combination as far as I know, try Dacian with Sarmatian allies or one of the Getic Thracian armies

Can you use allies or is it the case that you can't use allies in multiplayer games?

Re: Beginner's Guide Video Series

Actually I did say that impassable River crossings are a killing zone, though not in so many words, and not like Total War - if you are defending, you get to shoot at the attacker before he crosses, then when he does cross he is on one square and has to fight three squares on your side, though you g...

49. Make sure that that stream running down one side of the battlefield can be crossed before you put any troops on the other side of it

Re: Beginner's Guide Video Series

Well one thing you can take advantage of, is that the AI only reacts to forces within 5 squares of it, and even then may only react with the forces in that sector. This is dependent on what sort of armies are facing each other and the terrain, as if the AI thinks it has a good chance, it will advanc...

OK so it's a - 22% penalty for disordered, and - 45% for severely disordered, calculated after all other factors (assuming it's not fragmented etc)

Re: POA effects of disorder and severe disorder?

Yes I've always gone with the instinctive way of things, not bothering to work out the POA but looking at the troop type and the terrain to assess the likely result - but legionaries seem to be able to ignore terrain (certainly I've seen Roman players behave this way on YouTube) so I was wondering h...

Re: POA effects of disorder and severe disorder?

OK so if a Roman legionary goes into a wood, he becomes severely disordered, and what is the result of that precisely?

If you want to see some fortifications, download the Alesia scenario - though that only uses Field, or Light, Fortifications.

POA effects of disorder and severe disorder?

I've been working on this video https://youtu.be/-P5I-YJu1zU and have found out a few useful things - I thought at BUA was difficult terrain, for instance, but in fact it is rough terrain. However I am a bit stumped to be able to say what the POA effect is of being disordered or severely disordered ...

Re: Beginner's Guide Video Series

FOG multiplayer is great as you don’t play it real-time but when it’s convenient so time zones don’t matter (important for me as I'm GMT+10). You can play one turn per day if you wish. Each player plays a turn then it is automatically uploaded. You then receive an email saying that a turn is availab...
