Re: Field of Glory: Empires Update 1.04 Preview

That's fantastic and I'm very much looking forward to this! I don't mean to sound greedy but if something is done to address the current issues with the attack/defence mechanic that would make the game eternal in my books. For example, a sieging army is always considered the "attacker" even if a rel...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

I get his point that he wants you to break off your protection from them so that he can attack them, but then say that directly instead of demanding Nabatea do this and that when in fact you have no control over them.

Anything on diplomacy and unit assignment on the frontage during combat?

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

You do realise Nabatea is an AI, right? Just asking cuz it doesn't seem so. It's not even controlled by a dog that you can scold, but something that is not living and not able to be influenced in any way apart from changing its inputs, which at the moment are "at war with Judea".

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Update 1.04 Preview

I'm very glad a player's suggestion regarding cavalry in battles was directly incorporated into the game. Jolly well done!

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

His skirmish/support line is full but not optimised. I think you are misreading the screenshot.

The eye of the storm has been quite quiet actually with no regions changing hands between the successors so far. let's see what time brings!

Re: Percentage modifiers of 'base convert value'...but what is that value?

Thanks! So 6 unrest populations conversion chance is 4% x 0.8^5 = 1.31%? That's quite low but maybe ok with the bonuses.

Re: False Allies

Btw i agree with devoncop on how alliances should work. Just like everything in our society, they are only a verbal/written contract and are only as reliable as the person you sign them with.

Re: Percentage modifiers of 'base convert value'...but what is that value?

its usually 5%, but some factions or leader traits can shift this up or down a little. Where did you see that value? I've myself wondered but never found confirmation of it. The manual seems to suggest that the more "unruly" a population is, the more difficult it is to convert too. What are the dif...

Re: 3 horrible flaws in this game..

Precisely, what I was conveying is that you're referring to other games that do not have the "flaws" as per your list. And my answer is- FG2 design choices are... Design choices and not oversights.

Re: 3 horrible flaws in this game..

It seems all the "flaws" you list are taken from other hex-based strategy games you've played and are used to. Yes, FG2 has different design choices and ambitions but that doesn't make it bad, only different- this is something you should get used to instead of trying to get the game changed to what ...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Scorched earth tactics are much older than those times! Efficient and effective- I do the same all the time.

Don't worry, you can't disassemble wonders though I'm sure devoncop tried.

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

We should aim to do a turn recap every 5 turns starting from the 10th maybe when things have settled a bit. They are a good way to get the "big picture" even if you play the game yourself! Plus if Geffalrus is doing them, we get to gloat at his army of 10 barbarians.

Sadly, Xenophon wasn't there to write 10 tomes about the march of the Antigonid army: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anabasis_(Xenophon) "Xenophon accompanied the Ten Thousand, a large army of Greek mercenaries hired by Cyrus the Younger, who intended to seize the throne of Persia from his brother, A...
