Re: Feedback

I could have a look, and in order to make it efficient: anything particular you'd like me to look out for? And SP or MP? (Will probably only have time for one of them.) If MP: any of you other guys who could be sparring with me? If you set a match up, I should be able to pick it up in a couple hours.

Re: Feedback

I played a hotseat MP test match against myself (to see how the new setup order goes and in general to see what new things there possibly are). Nothing to report, everything worked as expected. Also I have to say, I like the new deployment order, much clearer this way, and both players get an equal ...

Re: Very frustrated...

OK, one immediate question: Generally combat seems to work OK, but sometimes I encounter an army that I just can't beat under any circumstances. For instance: 1) I can't seem to beat a 2-2 general, no matter what. I can outnumber them by more than 2x, no help. There seems to be no concept of attrit...

Re: Infantry charging heavy cavalry?

I know more about 18th/19th centuries than the ancient period, but that was certainly the most common cavalry usage in that period. Not that there weren't outliers of course. Errr... Are you implying cavalry in 18th/19th century regularily charged infantry formations frontally? Because in the rare ...

Re: Field of Glory: Kingdoms?

Pocus is french. There has never been a proper PC game of the 100 years war. The participiants of the war (and/or their allies) would nicely also be from pretty much the same area as the area from where the armies for FoG2:Medieval have been announced to come from. The scope would be excellent for a...

Re: I have a problem with the panic ripple

Both TW and FOG2 really encourage you to aggressively go after weakest units you can break. Perhaps, that was life in the ancient world. Because panic ripples through those remaining. But it seems to me if I am on the battlefield and see a Tiger or Panzer III, the priority should be the Tiger; the ...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

We will make an announcement once everything is finalised but it will be about general systems and not details. Is there any guesstimate when we could expect such an announcement? The signup for FOG2:DL Season 9 is open, and personally I am having mixed feelings. On one hand I really do enjoy the D...

Re: Scythed Chariots - what are they good for?...

I like using scythed chariots, or at least to have one in the army if the army-list allows it :) I keep behind the lines in center, or if terrain favours on a flank and I have cavalry superiority then behind cavalry. The thing is to look for possibilities to either flank charge a Disrupted enemy or ...

Re: Who has Missions?

Which nations have missions; not objectives? I've seen them with Carthage, Armenia and Rome. Who else has them, as they add to the game? Originally only Koclhis and Armenia had missions (from 1.06 and on). With the Persia DLC many nations got missions too (Persia, Athens, Sparta, Rome, Carthage, et...

I like the idea! However, is there a "...
