Re: Arrows vs Armour: Agincourt Myth Busting

Not everyone had good quality plate some had none in some locations. Wounds and arrows lodged in your armour would hamper your ability to fight. Period descriptions describe bodies covered in arrows - penetrating a little and lodged there. Just being hit by an arrow would rattle you I think.

Re: suggestion : more RALLIED UNITS with events on the battlefield ?

I'm interested to know if there is actually any chance of major changes to rallied units ever happening. Is it simply too hard for the developers to approach this from a coding sense or is it a mandatory bit of the game play that is not really up for discussion. What happens in the design process to...

Re: suggestion : more RALLIED UNITS with events on the battlefield ?

Essentially rallied units on the map periphery, out of realistic range, are protected points cashes randomly awarded. In 2 recent games I had text book flanking maneuvers that should have won me the games - but periphery rallies took those points away leaving fragmented units out of range and my wor...

Re: suggestion : more RALLIED UNITS with events on the battlefield ?

I'm having a bad run with opponents getting multiple rallies at the moment. It seems to me a well thought out plan thats going well can be ruined by distant rallies that cant be reached. These things are out of player control. Id like to see units only rally if in range of an un-engaged general. Id ...

Re: Chaos Tourney

General Shapur (Greek 227-146BC) defeats Schweetness (Thracian 350-281BC):- 60:58 A very tight game. The thracians dominated in the early stages seeing off the greek cavalry and light infantry with few losses. However, the skirmishing allowed the Greek phalanx to find good defensive terrain to sprin...

Re: Chaos Tourney

Challange1 (Bulgur 675-1237) Defeated General Shapur (Byzantine 740-903) 60-47. As the score shows, this was a bloody encounter with both (all cavalry) armies charging and counter charging while the horse archers harassed whenever possible. An almost featureless plain was the perfect terrain for th...

Re: Chaos Tourney

result (should we post them like the other Tourney?)

General Shapur (Jewish revolt 66-135AD) defeats Challenge1 (sas-Persian 629-651AD). 41-8

This was Challenge1's challange, and quite unlucky to to go up against one of the stronger armies. Thanks for the game.

Break tests question

Am I correct in assuming some armies have a better chance of passing break tests due to higher morale or unit cohesion. For example Romans have more staying power than Carthaginians, and would take more losses before disrupting or fragmenting. If so - is this morale/cohesion or X-factor thats specif...

Charge path curio.

I was curious about this odd charge path. I'm playing Arabs (Yellow) I wanted to park my cav (commander with the beveled box around it) in front of the arrowed unit. However, that square was not available to move into. I can however, charge the unit - which I did. Is it odd that I can charge the uni...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Some things that could work. How about one combat re-roll per general. That could eliminate some of the offensive miss-rolls. On the receiving end; maybe units stacked with a general can be exempt from double drops - presumably the general would be in a key position in the line. Rally issues - must ...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

3-1 score - Here is a general question for opinions. Twice in this tournament I have missed out on a point by seeing opponents rallying in the last move take my score below the 50% needed to gain a point while my opponent gets over the line. The first was 53% shifting to 49% but otherwise well beat...

I'll be up for that - maybe you will get a bad all infantry army with no skirmishers - lol, and I'll beat you, also - lol
