Re: Unable to log into server

I also had issues logging into multiplayer today. Got in on the fifth try, though. The multiplayer server has been a bit slow to respond in general since the patch.

Re: Determining who enters what region.

Thanks, it's good to have that clarified. If I see any odd cases, I'll let you know.

Re: Determining who enters what region.

Good to know. But the question that started the thread still stands: What happens when two opposing armies are about to enter each other's region on the same movement tick?

Re: Determining who enters what region.

The changelog for version 1.0.6 includes this:
• Improved how the game determines who is defending (outside of assaults)
So is there now some sort of logic we can use to determine who gets to be attacker when two armies try to move into each others' regions?

Re: Disbanding buildings.

I don't believe so. When I started dismantling a bunch of slave markets to change where captured slaves end up, I recall noting that I lost the money income from them immediately.

Re: Siege Expert

Option 3. But the leader bonus (or at least the portion that comes from offensive/defensive skill) is capped to the number of units in the army that have the relevant type of siege bonus (medium infantry, upgraded heavy infantry or legions for besiegers, foot skirmishers, archers, etc for defenders).

Re: Bizarre Invasion Result

I noticed that and thought it looked like an odd move. Make sure you haven't accidentally left the Retaliate order active in the army window for that army. That one sends the army back to the previous region instead of taking the new one over after it fights in enemy territory.

Re: Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change

It's been pretty quiet since Macedon and Carthage reduced Rome to its capitol region and then made peace. AI Rome still has the world's highest land power rating according to the ledger information, though. The Seleucids are just about done wiping out AI Maurya, the Ptolemies and Carthage have been ...

Re: CDR and government levels/types

Yes. Glorious governments gain additional decadence based on their government age, which (outside of special conditions that apply to certain factions) increases each turn, with the effect of making it difficult for them to maintain that status indefinitely.

Re: Question about the in game battles

I still do not understand why in a 5-frontage pass in the mountains, 5 of my non-cav. units reach to fight the non-cav. enemy, but only 3 if the enemy had 2 cav units? Does anyone know? That doesn't sound like it's working as designed. Only plains, hills, steppes and deserts are supposed to feature...

Re: Question about the in game battles

1. If you're fighting in hills, those have two unit slots at the edges that are cavalry only. In that case, you need to bring some cavalry of your own to fill those slots. In other small frontage terrain, the game shouldn't be placing anything in reserve until the whole frontline is filled out. 2. I...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change

It appears we have our first casualty: Based on the in-game player list, the Roman player gave up under the combined onslaught of Macedonia, Carthage and surrounding AI factions and handed the reigns over to the AI.

Re: Not getting email notifications in MP

It turns out only the notification for the MP game starting got flagged as spam for me. I've had missing turn notifications, though. From observation, I suspect the MP server is failing to send notifications for new turns when a turn ends by timing out rather than by all players finishing their turn...

Re: Change notifications about +/- relations to low priority

I've been experiencing this in a multiplayer game so can't currently reproduce it at will, but here's a few screenshots to illustrate the issue. Diplomatic notifications mode, when set to show top, medium, or low priority messages, respectively. Take note of the numbers listed by the messages: Switc...

No MP email notification for new turn when one times out?

I've been playing in the Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change multiplayer game. On turn 16, I didn't receive an email notification for the new turn and after asking, nobody else admitted to having received one either, nor did I receive one for turn 17 (the latest one). I can't say for 100% certain, b...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change

Another turn timed out as of a few hours ago, and again no email notification. Please consider this your reminder. I feel I have enough information to warrant a bug report, so I'll go write one up now.

Re: Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change

If anybody got a notification for turn 16, let me know. If no one got a notification for this specific turn, maybe knowing that would help the developers isolate the cause of the issue. Based on what I saw when I checked before I went to bed the night before the turn ended I think the turn might've ...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change

Am I the only one that didn't get an email reminder for the latest turn being ready to play, or did that affect everyone else too? Just in case, there's a new turn if you haven't checked in the last 10 hours.

Change notifications about +/- relations to low priority

Factions' relations improving or worsening due to wars or treaties spams the log and on-map event notifications heavily, but for some reason it's classed as medium importance, the same level as alliance treaties being signed between foreign powers, while factions joining wars is low priority for som...
