Re: SUGGESTION: Changes To Victory Conditions

rout gap above 60% must be at least 5% so you can't win with a 60-59 split (which is currently possible i think?) I really like this idea, especially since I found myself a few times in similar situations in multiplayer (in Pike and Shot) when we both were somewhere around 59-59 and I lost because ...

Re: Archers too weak

The takeaway here (in my opinion) is that the armour piercing capabilities of Mongol bows would certainly be at least as good as those of English longbows. While the sources you provided are interesting there are few things to consider. First of, tempering arrowheads wasn't done just by Mongols. Se...

Re: Archers too weak

We know that arrowfire alone was more than capable of turning back attacks large and small. If so then why did English used difficult terrain and field fortifications? If the firepower was enough to drive the opponents off they wouldn't need them. If English longbowmen really had such firepower how...

Re: Archers too weak

English Longbows could defeat riveted mail of common quality at 80 yards or under assuming proper poundage of the bow firing the correct ammunition. You are assuming quite a lot of things here. What is a "common" quality of chainmail? What is proper poundage? How can we assume that longbows could d...

Re: Archers too weak

The record is pretty clear on the English Longbow in the Hundred's Years war during open battle. Whenever they have a chance to pre-position defensive works and can entice an opponent to attack, their record is nearly flawless and their effect was as good as advertised. But the question is, what ex...

Re: Archers too weak

Just wait for the later medieval module which probably will give us the Battle of Agincourt. English longbow archers against French knights. I don't think those archers will be viewed as too weak. If the devs will try to go the "realistic" route I bet a lot of people will complain that they are too...

Re: Future DLC?

My preference would be a move into the Medieval era perhaps up to around 1300 or so covering the Crusades etc The devs seem to base their work on publications of Wargaming Research Group, usually works of Ian Heath. If the will go chronologically, and that is what they seem to be doing, the next tw...

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

Should the hemet design be nation specific or any nation can have 25% of the same helmet? Because many nations use the same shield wall unit. This is a very good point. The types of helmets used by different "nations" varied quite a bit. Not only that but also the type, shape and painting of shield...

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

Well, I guess it does make sense for some of the men in shieldwall to wear helmets. Like 25% would be good. Helmets weren't cheap but they would be the first thing to buy by a warrior if he could afford some more protection.

Re: Wolves at the Gate some feedback

Do you think that the Clipeati often operated as mounted cavalry, or were they perhaps more often used on foot, after riding to the battlefield? Hm, in the time period eclipsed by this army list Piast rulers were usually fighting outside their domain borders so most likely without major support of ...

Re: Wolves at the Gate some feedback

While generally well-researched, sadly the Wargames Research Group publications do not cite sources. Also they are of course quite old, the 2nd edition of Armies of Feudal Europe having been published in 1989. They may be well researched when it comes to western or otherwise more popular nations. I...

Re: Wolves at the Gate some feedback

Have you any information on composition for Polabian armies? This is in some ways problematic. The first concern is the diversity of Polabian Slavs since some of them like Obotrites developed into monarchies pretty quickly as well as at least partially adapted Christianity while others like Veleti ...

Wolves at the Gate some feedback

Salve fratres! First, of I want to say that so far I really enjoyed the new DLC but I've noticed a few things that maybe could use some attention. First the lack of some kind of army list that could represent Polabian Slavs, Slavic pirates/vikings and mercenaries. Having such a list ( especially for...

Re: Eastern Europe armies.

To be honest both Polish and Russian roster could use some tweaking. Although Poland indeed relied more on polish-hungarian infantry (hajduks) their infantry was (especially in later period) much more numerous and varied than the game would suggest.Let alone in Battle of Berestechko Poland deployed ...
