Re: 30 Years War team event

the tercios are really good if you can get into hand to hand combat...an early tercio will handle 3 pike and shot....but getting into combat without disrupting is very difficult, especially against an experienced player with a gentle hill near his base line for him to emplace his batteries

Re: In All The Years Of Playing...

I've never had a unit move twice its normal speed except during pursuit where it has broken several enemy units in a row.

I would put it down to the luck of war, sometimes shite happens, and at other times miracles happen. It may be the same action from the view of the opposing generals

Re: 30 Years War team event

Brian played this very well, co-ordinating his various troops so extra firepower on the flanks of my tercios broke them before contact. He also used his larger number of mounted to overcome my definite advantage in quality.

Re: SnuggleBunny's Pike and Shot, Field of Glory II, and Sengoku Jidai Channel

I rarely buy artillery but if its compulsory I find it really useful in conjunction with musketry. But I don't bother to protect them, they are small units which have little effect on the percentage of my army lost and any unit that is riding for miles to take out my guns is one less unit attacking ...

Re: Odenthus has passed away.

That is really sad news. I enjoyed playing him, and also playing the various historical battles he recreated.
A top bloke, and my condolences to his family.

Re: Question about Commanded shot

Athos, you should try a few multiplayer games, they are fun. But because its a human on the other side the enemy is less predictable. When you only play the computer you soon learn how it thinks and can adjust your disposition and tactics accordingly. I use dragoons in preference to commanded shot, ...

Re: Need some advice for an 1494 Spanish campaign

hold your gendarmes and light cavalry back. The secret against the light horse is to stop them breaking off once they are in contact. If his light cavalry charge your foot and don't immediately break off then put a unit in his rear then you can kill him with flank charges. when his light cavalry are...

So the Final table is; ……………………....Pantherboy…..Snugglebunnies……….awesum4...…...Gribol Pantherboy...

Re: 2019 Tournament

Gribol won both our games although they were very close until the very end. His Ottomans beat my Imperialists 59% to 64% and his Imperialists beat my Ottomans 48% to 64%. So just waiting for the results of the games between Pantherboy and Gribol and the games between Snugglebunnies and Gribol. Then ...

Re: 2019 Tournament

Each of you picks a pair of armies. That is 3 pairs in total, so 6 armies. We each then play two games against each of the other finalists. So we will each play 6 games using each of the 6 armies once. Say you pick French verses Italians, then against one of you opponents you will use French against...

The final round has four players; Pantherboy, Snugglebunnies, awesum4 and Gribol. They will play a pair of battles against each of their three opponents. Rather than me choose the armies I will ask the others to nominate a pair of armies and then I will randomly assign the battles to each pair of op...
