Re: "Skoutatoi and Archers" model problem

I don't think that is entirely unreasonable for this particular unit as they are unlikely to have to fight hand to hand and the unit is not rated as swordsmen - whearas the others you refer to are. I already thought about this after posting... So yes, you are surely right, but still it kooks quite ...

"Skoutatoi and Archers" model problem

I have noticed that the "Skoutatoi and Archers" model from the later byzantine list, more specifically the archer units are not using any weapon in close combat. I am not sure if this is intended, but for me it looks quite strange, especially because other massed archers also use a sword in the anim...

Re: Live Multiplayer

Sadly, remote play together is also very laggy even I have a very good internet connection.

Re: What do you hope to see added before Fog II ends?

- a direct multiplayer modus Steam Remote Play Together could be tried as a direct multiplayer mode as FOGII has hotseat game mode. The downside is that one may not conceal their troops in hotseat mode. Thank you for this advice, I will try this soon. But still, I think a true direct multiplayer op...

Re: Which Armies/Units would you like to see

Re: What do you hope to see added before Fog II ends?

Maybe a bit late to answer on this Topic, but anyways, "What do you hope to see added before Fog II ends?" From most to least important: - a direct multiplayer modus - 2 vs 2 (and other) for battles - further polishment of the mechanics while keeping the focus on historical accuracy - addressing the...

Re: Co-op mode

I am also very interested in a direct multiplayer feature and a co-op mode or a general 2 vs 2 modus.

As far as I have heard this features are already noted on their wishlist, but I may be wrong. Anyway, it would be marvelous to see this features getting reality.

Re: Unit Costing Anomalies

Overall, are cavalry too highly priced at present? Cavalry armies don't seem to do too well in open tournaments. I think that veteran byzantine lancers are too high priced at this moment. They cost 72 points while a armoured noble lancer only costs 64 points having the same stats, only missing 50% ...

I didn't find Xystophoroi in Arab lists.
@melm: There are Xystophoroi in the current nabataean list. Unfortunately, I am not sure how much sense they make, as also in the Jewish lists.

Re: consistency ,authenticity and richness

On the one hand, I can really understand your point lapdog666. For me it would also be important to have FoG2 as historically accurate as possible. On the other hand, I can understand that certain things are too expensive for the current game budget to represent them in detail (even if I really woul...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

I doubt if anyone on this board knows the answer to these questions, you will probably need to ask it on the AGEod forum where the Field of Glory Empires developers might see it. http://www.ageod-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=53060 Thank you for that advice!

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

I am also very happy that it has been possible to combine global strategy with Field of Glory 2 battles! I have wanted something like that since the game was released. Only too bad that it is probably a bit inconvenient to export the battles to Field of Glory 2 and export it back and these balltes a...

Re: Game Turns Wont Upload

Same issue here for me and some friends that are playing Field of Glory 2 in Germany.
Often, it is not possible to reach the multiplayer lobby or you get stuck while uploading a multiplayer turn.
Also the forum is very slow and sometimes even an error with "bad gateway" shows up.

Re: New units add suggestion

Different is they started to use the spatha(long sword) and elliptical shields like cavalrys,and restart to equipment the chain armor. Which would not affect classification under the rules.

Re: Skirmishers faster than horses

They weren't facing away and there wasn't a tile's gap, was there? The cavalry was facing directly the skirmishers and there surely was no gap between them. The only mentionworth thing is, that the skirmishers faced another unit on their right and not directly my cavalry, but for me this gives no r...

Re: Skirmishers faster than horses

Skirmishers may not start moving when cav is right in front of them.
But my friends cavalry was directly in front of my skirmishers at the beginning of the turn, so something here is wrong.

Skirmishers faster than horses

Recently I am playing a multiplayer match versus a friend in field of glory 2 and he discovered a weird thing, that I found worth mentioning. He attacked my light skirmishers one tile away with nobel lancers and they could escape anyway. I'm just wondering how to justify that logically, since the ca...
