Re: Killer Stacks

I mean, I think that - is - where the advantage of the massive doomstack really comes into play. Even if your 10-12 front rank infantry get damaged, if you have 10 more, they'll just fill in on the next round of combat. The main weakness of that approach is that it can play havoc with what happens i...

Re: Killer Stacks

Sadly, I'm starting to see "killer stacks" of ships or troops appearing in the game too often. These massive troop concentrations are, IMHO, skewing the game too much. I know the developers have established a supply system that overall works quite well but does not mitigate army/fleet concentration...

Terrain frontages has been reworked. Part of the slots are now reserved to cavalry, but some terrains are bigger. For example before the patch, plain had a frontage of 12, now it had a frontage of 10+4

Diplomacy no, it will take more time for us to come with something fleshed out enough.
That's a tricky pickle to figure out, no doubt. Fortunately, MP is accessible enough that player-player interaction can provide more variety in that realm.

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Most of the action in the Great Alliance War is now confined to Southern Italy and Illyria. I only grabbed screens of the most recent developments in Sicily, but I'll sum up the rest with the following: - In the aftermath of Rome's Fall, the Carthaginians and Lysimakids attempted a daring deep penet...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Looking at the picture I'd also wonder why you have some skirmishers standing in the rear when the majority of your skirmish line is empty! Archer units always start in the support rank. Skirmishers start in front and then pass through the melee line to take up space in the support rank. It's just ...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

His skirmish/support line is full but not optimised. I think you are misreading the screenshot. Yes. One spot is taken by a random normal skirmisher, 2 slots are taken by Elephants, and the other 3 are taken properly by Lydian Archers. That leaves 4 Cilician Archer units not involved in support whe...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

The attack/defence mechanic is killing combat... Agreed. It forces weird strategic decisions and exacerbates the finicky-ness of how attack/defense gets determined in individual cases. Being at such a disadvantage defensively with most armies where attack values > defense values makes it super anno...
