Re: My take on exporting battles

Interesting comments, I am lurking on this forum because I want to play a strategy game in the ancient era and this one is on top in my list. I agree with others that to fight battles on FOG2 against the AI cannot be the best solution (especially if you have the right tactic against it). What is the...

Re: About fog and the multiplayer comunity

I totally agree, even if my first tournament will start on Monday, I am having great fun playing casual MP games. Some players just want to play, with others I have nice chatting, but not a single game stalled or I had to wait days for a turn. I stopped to play SP three days after the purchase and I...

Re: Need some book advices

Given that I prefer the books, 30% off is a good deal!
Legion Versus Phalanx was already on my list, thinking about the Campaign and Combat series.

Re: Need some book advices

Thanks to all! Lot of suggestions, some books are hard to find (in Italy) or too expensive (I prefer the old paper), at the moment my basket includes: The Art of War in the Western World di Archer Jones Legion Versus Phalanx: The Epic Struggle for Infantry Supremacy in the Ancient World di Myke Cole...

Re: Seleucids

Victory! This was the shortest game yet. Seleucids is probably a good place for beginners. You don't have a lot of enemies and you have a lot of regions to practice developing. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Allocating Generals

But you can change a cavalry general into an infantry general by moving some infantry units into his command at deployment time, then moving the general into one of the infantry units. I just noticed that in my current games, all players (but me in the first game, after I have adapted my strategy) ...
