Re: Revised army lists for Season 6 . . .

For what it's worth, the Ptolemaic 55-30 BC probably shouldn't be in that list. 1 average pike and 3 raw pike doesn't a pike army make.

Re: Revised army lists for Season 6 . . .

Well, you are going to have to get used to the idea because I will be bringing it in for Season 6. The other reason for doing this is because at the moment it is possible to have 6 pike armies in the same division - Antigonid, Lysimachid, Macedonian, Ptolemaic, Seleucid plus the non-Diadochi Pyrrhi...

Re: Ellendun 825 is now available in MP!

Given Mercia was the agressor historically, they definitely seem to have been foolish according to your scenario which gives Wessex more troops as well as better quality on average. (More hird units for Wessex, no below average fyrd compared to the below average East Saxon ones for Mercia. Not too h...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires is out

I was using it as Serial Number since Steam keys are listed separately under registered products. Turned out I had a beta serial that I tried. Got the right one for actual released product and that worked.

Re: Field of Glory: Empires is out

I assume the key listed under my products is what should be used for serial number. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be working.

Re: Revised army lists for Season 6 . . .

I don't see any issues. The lists for the final Byzantine/Sassanian wars under Heraclius that weakened both empires and left them suceptible to the Arab conquest fall into EM now, but that seems fine. I'd only see a problem if the appropriate lists for the Persians and the Byzantines for Heraclius' ...

Re: Revised army lists for Season 6 . . .

For what it's worth, that split seems much more historically sensible than the earlier. (But then I'm biased given I made the suggestion originally.)

Re: Revised army lists for Season 6 . . .

What are you using for a date range for the Later Middle Ages? All the lists you currently list as moving to High Middle ages feel far more Dark Age-ish and similar and contemporary with the Early Middle Age armies, e.g. the various post conquest Arab armies, Vikings and the various horse archer/ste...

Division C

batesmotel (Khorasanian) beat Doyley50 (Viking) 64%-26%

Thanks for the game. Played on a map with more terrain than either army really wanted.

Re: Poll on army selection rules

My thought with buckets is that once they're set up and sanity checked, the only further restricton would be only one army from a bucket could be used in a division. I think my buckets for the Achaemenids and Byzantines are set if anyone with an opinion wants to look at them. I'm happy to look at so...

Re: Poll on army selection rules

I suspect if you get people who know some of the armies well, it shouldn't be hard to split them up into buckets or at least into groups like Klay has done. And no reason Pete has to do it. (I probably spent 15 minutes or less on the examples I did in my prior response and I suspect Klay didn't spen...

Re: Poll on army selection rules

The problem with an abstract rule based on the number of candidate army lists in a several hundred year range as well as a large geographic area seems likely to rule out the use of armies that may differ substantially in troop types and quality. It might make sense to go through these armies by nati...

Div C

batesmotel (Khorasanian) drew with Karvon (Arab-North Africa) 42%-44%

Thanks for the game. We each destroyed the left flank of the other army but then couldn't re-position troops quickly enough to finish each other off.
