Re: Some Diplomacy thoughts and suggestions

Winning a battle and demanding war compensation instead of taking control comes to mind as a diplomatic tool to punish those raiders and avoid taking regions you do not want.

Re: Attacker-Defender Error?

They should skip attacker defender for field siege stats.

Re: Switching nations in multiplayer?

Switching nations sounds amazing, acting as a leader your dead makes you switch to another nation that gets a new leader. So you play in the same game from different angles. Adding all scores for an endscore. It's probably just daydreaming.

Marshtrap

Want to feel how it is for a Roman army to overcome German superior numbers in a Marsh ? Accept the challenge made by me in a custom battle. The idea is that you reach the other side of the map, as that is not a scenario, we have to make the gentlemen's agreement that I surrender as soon as your tro...

Re: Production user interface

It was a conscious design decision to move away from deterministic build queue, as done since Civ I. We know that this is a feature that most of you like or at least have no problem with, and a few despise. I guess that's the price to pay for moving away from the canon of the genre. There are benef...

Trait Ambusher,Guerrilla

The modifiers do puzzle me as do the use of the general with the trait. Does the army have to attack to use the trait ? Are the modifiers for the own troops or do they effect the enemies troops? The name suggests it's a defensive trait that gives a bonus to your own troops in certain terrain, while ...

Re: Why do units have separate attack and defense values?

Looking forward to the answer of the developers. Behind walls it's clear who is defending, but on an open battlefield it's not so clear.

Re: Cavalry and Battle Frontage Solution

I think a performance boost for cavalry on the flanks, or a malus for infantry, would really help make the cavalry worthwhile. At present I don't buy any because they are poor value for money. Maybe having reserved spaces at the end of the line for cavalry (limited to certain terrains where cavalry...

Re: Cavalry and Battle Frontage Solution

Great idea, to promote combined arms. Giving positive modifiers for troops at the right spot in the battleline and negative modifiers if they have to do things they are not good at. Thinking about using Speed, Flanking and Skirmishing as possible factors that decide if they get rewarded or punished ...

Re: Objective in Allied States

That objective is there for the moment they backstab you. You can plan ahead to grab it the moment his dagger moves. Or declare war on him, wait till he captures two of your regios then grab the objective and make peace. Rebuild the relationship and you can feel good about it. You gave him two for o...

Re: an historical game ?

i understand that many things can't be historical and ok, it's not too bad but it is a shame that at least some troops are irrelevant. I play Carthage, impossible to recruit light javelinmens ! it is the most common and easier troops to have but no. You conquer lybia who is renown for his light tro...

Re: Make Cavalry Great Again

If you nerf and boost troops at the outer positions of battlelines for being in a position they can be outflanked in open 3, hills 2 , forest 1. Troops without flanking skill are nerfed if opposed with an enemy, with the outer position modifier. Troops with flanking skill if opposed with an enemy ca...

Anybody notice those little 5 man units in the top Irish-Viking jpeg? They aren't skirmishers.

If you are revolting with a rabble force against soldiers you have to set up a custom battle with numbers in your favor if you want to win.

Re: vakarr Custom Battles: Mercenaries and Allies Mod v1

There are some strange things, the Macedonian army list has units that cost 0. The Gallic Thracian list is named Umbrian. Yes and Triballi are shown as Apulian in the challenge list. There are also 255 elements of an unknown troop type in the Macedonian list. However I think it is a fantastic job a...

Re: Classical Antiquity: winners post your results here . . .

Div B Paulmcneil Armenians defeats Xlegione Galatians 55:29 Go figure. I suppose 2 mountain ranges, 2 lakes, 2 forests, and 2 hills may have given the Armenian archers and med inf a slight advantage. Oh OK it was almost entirely down to the terrain. You had my blessing too. Your win is my win.

Division B

Hendricus (Romans) beat paulmcneil (Armenian,Tigranes) 66-38

First there was a fight between the Hastati and Cataphracts and after that the Romans had to storm a small hill with difficult slopes. Such a small hill can hold a lot of troops.

Division B

Hendricus (Romans) beats oscarius (Greaco-Bactrians) 62-47


Two towering mountains with a small strip of hilly rough woody and some clear spots, with room for a third of the armies, so those armies lined up in depth and then with helmets on went straight for each other.
