Re: SUGGESTION: Changes To Victory Conditions

-some nations rout with normal conditions but only when say at least 1/3 of their main infantry force (med and heavy) is routed. That would be very faction dependent, but could help with the issue where the core of a mostly infantry army is still intact, but because their skirmishers and other ligh...

Re: Not authorized for SC:WAW forum

Thankyou both, zakblood and VPaulus.

Although I've merged my accounts I still get the same error.
However the suggestion to go to the Matrix forum directly works - good enough for me :)

cheers!

Not authorized for SC:WAW forum

Greetings, I bought "Strategic Command: World at War" on Steam, I went to read the forum for the game here, but get "You are not authorized to read this forum". I can read the forums for other games that I don't own, or bought on steam, or bought via slitherine/matrix. I logged out - and then I can ...

New Allies feature expands lists to over 700

From the product page for the new DLC: New Allies feature added in the accompanying game update allows you to include historical allies in either or both armies for SP and MP Custom Battles throughout the period covered by the game – now 680 BC-1040 AD. The game creates a composite army list drawn p...

Re: Any chance of a DLC covering the period before 680 BC?

Swifter than Eagles is lower down my list of preferred releases ( looking forward to Swords and Scimitars most of all ) but I would still get it. Belisarius surprised me with how much I enjoy commanding the Picts, Scots and Welsh. In fact I wonder how many others feel as I do - release DLC for this ...

Re: Tides of Conquest Punic Wars campaign, singleplayer

Nijis, somehow I completely missed this thread. You've put a lot of thought into the whole system and it seems to work well. Just a quick question though, I'm trying to get my head around the difficulty levels vs army strength... We heal only 10% of our strength in a province with rebels, so any bat...

Re: Suggestion: First Turn Bidding

Yes, good idea. A group of table-top players I was in used a system where we could bid points for the rights to place a piece of terrain, or to go first, or to choose which side of the table to start on, etc. It made things very interesting.

Re: I'm done with this game!

So what you are seeing is not units miraculously passing multiple cohesion tests in a turn, in defiance of probability, but a simulation of one single cohesion test. Multiple tests are taken using the same random score, with only the single worst result counting. That's a really interesting explana...

Re: Field of Glory II Age of Belisarius announced

I'm especially interested in hearing how the dismounting (and re-mounting) will work and what units will be able to do it (and if it will be retrofitted for some older units). Me too. I'm probably wrong but I suspect it will be a case of selecting a unit as either mounted or dismounted at the start...

Agreed about the crusades/holy wars. Either way, I look forward to all the expansions, I can't really think of anything that I wouldn't like to have.
