Re: Looks like I underestimate generals

Yes, in tournament play you will often see players place generals in the front line to maximise their unit’s impact and melee stats.

Re: MP game reliable opponents wanted!!

I only played MP Napoleonic and AGEOD but, unfortunately, am now in a care home. My desktop is in my house awaiting sale :cry: . I only have my old HP laptop which, I think, would be unsatisfactory. My son is waiting to come over from KL to assist in clearing up things. Damn this virus!! All the be...

Division B

SLancaster (Scots) beat MorkinTheFree (Romans) 59-34.

The Scots are really poor at 1600 pts. I didn't think I would get one win but I finally managed it after a hard fight. Good luck to my opponent in his future games!

Re: I think that knights advantage in melee should be removed or lessened

One thing that I don't understand is that why giving knights 150 POA in melee vs cavalry. We know that knights only have normal 100 POA in melee vs foot. If they have advantage in melee against lancers, it may come from their quality and armor. Why not just spread this 50 POA advantage to their qua...

Re: I think that knights advantage in melee should be removed or lessened

You make some good points. But, basically you are saying that the 50 POA advantage v a particular kind of cavalry is unfair and not supported by the evidence according to you. But, many players seem to think that Knights are underpowered for their cost. It is the exact opposite from what you are sa...

Re: I think that knights advantage in melee should be removed or lessened

Going just on how they play in the game I think Knights are okay. Quite a few players even seem to think that Knights are overpriced at 74. They are slow, easily flanked, and in my experience often do minimal damage to spearmen apart from their lucky roll on the impact charge from time to time. Tha...

Re: Mongol and shooting !

Personally, I would go with the Hungarians over the French. I just took a look at both. The Hungarians have 16 horse archers and 8 light horse while the French have 2 mounted Xbows and no light cavalry. The Hungarians have 7 formed archers/Xbows and 5 light archers vs the French 4 XBows and 4 light...

Re: Mongol and shooting !

In league play, some of these armies are simply not designed to fight horse armies. They never faced them historically and are organized to fight similiar armies. Those type matchups are just not going to produce a competitive fun game. I can imagine being the Scots and just sitting there while bei...

Re: Mongol and shooting !

I just played a very close game against the Mongols in the DL. I routed three cav units on turn 23 and then another right on turn 24 to win. Ironclad did great with them. Cavalry were darting all over the place pulling me out of position. Their cavalry with bows does a lot of damage. But, overall, I...

Division C SLancaster German (Imperial) 1155-1199 AD defeated Ironclad Mongols (Europe) 1223-1241 AD. 69-39 . An extremely close game where I only routed 3 cavalry units on turn 24 to suddenly get over 60. The Mongols were very tough and expertly played by Ironclad. I expect other armies to be hara...

Re: What armies/units are you looking forward to in future DLCs?

I will meet the upstart Richard Yorke III at Bosworth Field. We will stream it on YouTube to conclude the War of the Roses. That period will be my favourite I think and hopefully well represented! Isn't the War of the Roses a great arena for completely symmetrical battles? Well, if you mean that co...
