Re: Irregular Foot vs. Raw Hoplites

If we don't want to turn Ligurians or any Irr Foot heavy list into Zombie hordes there needs to be something that they can give Irr Foot to make them unique and playable. Off the top of my head something like limited evasion or maybe a propensity to break off from close combat like cavalry currentl...

Re: Generals

Assign some foot units to the cavalry general's command, then you can move him to one of the foot units. Thanks; sorry if I'm being dense again, but then I would need to transfer all of the foot into the former cavalry command, and the cavalry to a different command? Yes. A bit clunky, but that's h...

Re: Generals

Also, I don't understand the ability (or lack thereof) to re-assign generals. I thought that I should be able to re-assign generals to any unit (at least of my nationality), but that does not seem to be the case--I cannot assign cav generals to foot units. While that makes sense, the problem is tha...

Re: Generals

So a question: i did not yet understand how we maximize the sub-generals. Can someone kindly explain that to me. Thanks in advance. If you're asking how to get the max number of sub-generals in an army: During army selection, position Infantry (not LF) in the center, Cavalry (not LH) on both sides ...

Re: Whats your Favourite Army and why?

Ligurian. I love how simple and uncluttered the army list is. I also enjoy how hard it is to win with Ligurians due to the almost complete lack of reliable units. :lol: I am playing in an MP campaign (hand-moderated map movement) as Armenian (non-Tigranes version) - someone had to volunteer - and i...

Re: Generals

I don't want to seem disrespectful too but imho all those "choices" came from the limit of the engine rather than deliberate developing ideas. Agreed. I've occasionally been checking out the AI scripts, there are limitations that come from the game engine. There's a restriction on local variables f...

Re: difficulty settings, help

Well, it depends on what you mean by "Normal". You obviously regard it as when both sides have the same points. Bearing in mind that a human player should have a natural advantage over the AI, it is not unreasonable to give the AI a little points advantage to have a fair and challenging game. That ...

Re: difficulty settings, help

The second level is "Tribune", that just gives the player more points to spend on units. The third level is "Legate", that is the normal level. This is false. This can be confirmed by creating a custom battle and fiddling with the options. If you set force size to very large, the AI will get 2000 p...

Re: difficulty settings, help

The standard, most balanced difficulty is 2. Levels 3, 4 and 5 reduce the number of units you can buy. Only levels 1 and 6 change the quality of the units.

Re: Two-step cohesion loss - too common?

I agree. Double-drops appear to be happening too often. Impact foot's design seems problematic to me. It makes sense for a lancer or ferocious warband charge to leave your unit a wreck if you don't hold properly, but this doesn't fit Roman cohorts in my opinion. Pila could be disruptive, but the fol...

Re: Anibal Campaign, scenario 2 vs gauls, strategy?

- I understand that impact phase basically represents charges. Wouldn't it make sense if, whenever a unit is engaged, uses their melee skill against the impact skill of the charging unit? I mean, they are engaged already, how are they countercharging? This would make shock infantry more balanced, I...

But... Ligurian is my favorite list :(

When you say "armies will be chosen at random", do you mean the army list or the army composition?

Re: Generals

As jomni said above, the reason we did not make the effect of generals more important than we did (in Sengoku Jidai and FOG2) was to avoid degrading the AI compared with a player. It isn't an oversight, it is a deliberate design decision for the overall benefit of the game as a game . You just didn...
