Can't send PMs myself - so for Scar and Peter, I'm defending Turnacum and will rather quickly put the second invader (hidde) in his place. Rawr.

I have some difficulty to accept the fact that a Roman impact foot unit, considered as a unit, has and will have the same possibility to anarchy charge of a German impact foot unit (think of what has happened at Aquae Sextiae to have an historical example: an entire Ambrones army has charged uphill...

The computer game attracted me as I could try a few differing armies and see if I liked the way they play. I was working under the assumption that other than the differing methods of moving and BG organisation (or lack of it) that FoG PC was basically under the hood FoG TT mechanically speaking. S....

In some seemingly unamed corner of Nervia, after a bloody struggle, the Eupatorians rallied and manged drive off the Nervii horde, for the moment at least. Eupatorians 14429 casualties Nervii 14566 casualties Round 3? Round 3 indeed. In case they are needed for Peter, our starting strengths were as...

I don't own or play the TT game, but for what i've read around i highly doubt you can use the PC as a training or test bed for the TT game. Having come from DBM --> DBMM --> FoG it's what I was counting on! It would saddened me to learn that the rules coded into the PC game are so far removed from ...

Maybe Im being over dramatic here, but one of the most enjoyable parts of the game for me is the jostling for position before the the final clash. But the anarchy rules as they stand are making a mockery of tactical manuevering and taking the fun out of the game for me. Comments like this really ha...

We have one more battle still going, once that is complete, we will move on to the Pay upkeep phase. This will be a fast phase, probably don't even need a full day as everyone is below their free units amount, then it will be recruitment. So please be thinking of what you want to recruit. Also, if ...

Free pass is a good description but if you could finish such wars ASAP please. Don't worry, I'll force Xiccarph back to his own territory licking his wounds soon enough. Also (based on what I was reading), it seems that we only have to PM you initially now if we use less than 500 points for the bat...

As just a side not - prior to the map coming into play Xiccarph and myself were about to have a good ol' fashion throwdown. With the new map, he is no longer adjacent. Does he have to publically ask permission to attack me or since the declaration of war was thrown out prior to the map coming up, do...

Were you guys making sure that you saved them at the higher point value? Ie, say you wanted to use 400 out of a possible 600 points. Instead of saving it as a 400 point army, you save it as a 600 point army and simply do not take the remaining 200 points? I know the person who accepts the challenge ...

I would post this in the tech support forum (it would probably be moving there anyway). Did you get any error messages? What happens when you go back into the game now?

All good points I would definitely agree with, but would like to add that it wasn't the Longbow that was a wonder weapon of any kind, just the skill of the users in the English army, plus good tactics and use of terrain to maimise their value. Yes it has been romanticised, but the ALL English victo...

You are right they were the best archers around, no matter what other missile weapon other infantry used at that time they could not hope to shoot it out with English Longbows as they would lose.

^ that's really not a good reason in FOG for the PC, though, considering most of my multiplayer games take place between RoR v. SOA right now! Unlike the Spartans of IF era, the Swiss never fled a battle screaming like little girls in the SoA era. And given almost all other Geek hopites are average...

NO. I mean the mixed citizen/perioikoi units are average. there isn't a single elite in the army, not even one. I just looked at the TT lists to confirm this. But then with TT lists its easy to write in your own additions etc. Yeppers. There's no elite Spartans. If I remember correctly the argument...
