How Does Multiplayer Work With More Than 2 Players?

I assume that multiplayer is through the same server as Field of Glory 2. How does it work when there are more than 2 players in a multiplayer game. Since it is WEGO, I am thinking all players do their moves, and then end their turn. What happens if player A has a battle with player C or maybe even ...

Re: Unrealistic Tactic

My friend and I have been using this tactic for some time now without any of our cavalry pursuing off the map. If you have a routed unit close to the east map edge and you attack from the east it runs to the west toward the centre of the map. Similarily if the routed unit is in the middle of the map...

Unrealistic Tactic

A tactic that my friend and I use is to attack routed units. The routed units run and the attacking unit follows giving it additional movement. This is helpful when you are trying to move a unit to an area on the battlefield as your unit gets there quicker. My suggestion is that when a unit attacks ...

Scenario - Dara

I picked up Age of Belisarius since it is on sale during Easter. I had a quick look at a couple of the scenarios including Dara which has a "deep ditch" that some Byzantine units start behind. It can't be that deep because I was able to move both infantry and cavalry through it without any penalty s...

Reduced CC

I just completed a scenario by PBEM with a friend. About half way through I lost my CinC. Later I lost my second in command. Long story short, for much of the scenario, most of my units were "reduced CC". Is there any impact on those units other than losing the free quarter turn? Thanks.

Re: Multiple Melees in a turn

Actually, I don't play against the AI, only PBEM. What I saw in the replay was one of my cavalry units being meleed twice by each enemy cavalry unit that was already involved with it in close combat. As my opponent could only melee my cavalry unit once during his turn, the automatic activation of a ...

Multiple Melees in a turn

I have seen replays where one of my units has more than one melee with the same enemy unit. I am not referring to a charge but after they have been involved in melee combat for a turn or more. In these situations I did not melee in my turn so my assumption is that when I don't, the program initiates...

Losing your C I C

I was playing a community scenario by PBEM with a friend, Vienna 487 AD and my C I C was killed in a melee. My side immediately surrendered. I know there is an optional set up for that called "chop the head?" or something like that. I think scenario designers should indicate in their write up if thi...

Advantage and Disadvantage of Forming Square

I know that you can't be flanked when you are in square formation but I thought there was a decrease in your defensive capability. I couldn't find anything in the manual about the impact on melee. Thanks.

Is Age of Belisarius Required For............

In Community Content I saw that StockWellPete had added a number of multiplayer scenarios beginning with Vienna in 487 AD. Given that the time period for these scenarios is the one covered by the Age of Belisarius DLC would it be required to be able to play these scenarios? Thanks.

DLC Compatibility

I have the Slitherine/Matrix version of FOG2 while one of my friends has the Steam version. I was thinking of picking up The Age of Belisarius to PBEM with him. If he bought the DLC from Slitherine/Matrix, would it work even though he has the Steam version of FOG2. If it does work then we could play...

New Update

When I clicked on the Update button it indicated there was a new version of FOG2 so I went through the process which by the way is a little confusing. When it reaches the screen it asks which product I want to update and in the bottom window it shows FOG2 and only one of the two DLC that I bought so...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

FOG Empires will be a wait and see for me. I had the AGEOD Civil War game and it was dull, dull, dull. Every game they put out after that was exactly the same and I never purchased another one. I just found their system very bland. Since I have FOG2 I am wondering if you can play the battles initiat...

Hide Small Overhead View of Battlefield.

I haven't been able to find anywhere in settings that would allow me to hide the small overhead view of the battlefield that appears near the bottom of the screen on the right. Is it possible to hide or remove this? Thanks.

Re: Question About Update to Version 1.4.7

Thank you for the prompt replies. Even though only Immortal Fire appeared in the bottom window I am able to play it (epic battles) as well as Legions Triumphant. Strange. As my version now reads 1.4.7 I assume that I don't have to do anything else. I also kept all my activation keys in case I have t...

Question About Update to Version 1.4.7

After downloading the update file a screen appeared showing Field of Glory 2 and Immortal Fire in the bottom window. It asked which of the two I wanted to update so I chose FOG2. Why was Immortal Fire there and do I need to update it as well? I also own Legions Triumphant but it was not shown in the...

I will eventually purchase Rise of Persia but since I have not yet played all the scenarios and campaigns from Legions Triumphant and Immortal Fire, I am wondering about the change in gameplay mechanics, and AI behaviour. Will I be able to play someone who has the update PBEM? To me it really isn't...

Re: Rise of Persia will come with a free update (Praetorian Guard and Peltasts incoming)

I saw this about the free update. Rise of Persia – the upcoming DLC for Field of Glory II – won’t just feature a tremendous collection of Army Lists from the factions of the period. As always, the DLC’s release will come with a free update improving many elements of the entire franchise, ranging fro...

Re: Field of Glory II Version 1.3.9 Patchnotes

I hope that in a future patch the option of adjusting the speed of the replay for multiplayer is added. As it is now I sometimes have to view the replay more than once to see my opponent's turn especially ranged weapons results.
