Re: Patch I is released! (v01.00.07250)

How does this patch work from the Slitherine download site? I see 3 downloads, a [PC] Installer v01.00.07074 of size 1.3 Gb, and two apparently equal files with a slightly different timestamp: [PC] Update v01.00.07250 of size 1.2 Gb. When I don't have the game installed on one of my PC's, do I have ...

A couple of questions

1) Can I clear wire weed as Space Marines outside my city? Other factions have 'colonists' that can do it, but I sit on a peninsula cut off by wire weed. 2) When showing possible hexes to move to, it appears that you cannot move through your other units, but during the movement animation they move t...

Campaign and DLC

I just learned about this game's existence, and used the sale to try the base game. Played the tutorials and started the campaign, first three missions, and I liked it so far, so before the sale ended I also bought all DLC. (I know, that is compulsive behaviour, should have quietly finished the base...

Re: Units swapping?

When you order a movement, even if you spend only 1 MP, all the unit movement allowance is spent! I don't remember it was working like that in the first versions of the game (or I'm tired). This is rather difficult to explore without getting ambushed now. It confused me as well at first, but it is ...

Re: Script error has occured on this page

Must be a Javascript error in the browser window (on the launcher) that displays news from the Matrix site. After clicking away several error popups about failing google ajax scripts, I saw an incomplete Matrix page with a failed cooky notification frame. It is probably harmless for the game itself,...

Selling bundles

I recently discovered and acquired some Slitherine games after Field of Glory: Empires got a lot of attention in the general game press. I wanted to play FoG:E, and I watched some gameplay videos of FoG2 and recognised I would enjoy that game as well. So I wanted to buy the whole lot: FoG:E and FoG2...

Re: Just finished my first game

I started with a few starts as Cheruscii, where the whole economy of the nation could be understood. But I couldn't survive the aggression of all my neighbours. So I waited for the first patch, and then wanted to start with a stable powerful nation instead, and I chose Ptolemy. However, with so many...

Re: New player here

So next a few centuries back, with the Franks against the Visigoths. Interestingly, it seems the Franks learned something about cavalry from the Goths, as the Visigoths came with a kind of early form of the later Frankish army, with a fair few lancers, while the Franks basically fought with Roman ti...

New player here

I was led to this game through AGEOD Empires. This game comes closest to my boardgame experience with the Richard Berg games (Alexander, Legion, Caesar etc) of the 1980's. One's role is not being an ancient general with an army, but a board wargamer with his counters, or a tabletop player with his m...

And, to my delight: changed the order of the scenarios, so now the Grand Campaign is the default scenario.

Re: Why have my Spartan phalanxes deteriorated in quality

How were the units changed in the Empires stats during the first battle.

The troop quality in FoG2 is derived, so your complaints would probably be caused by data on the Empires side.

Re: Army not retreating after losing?

I am just guessing, because I lack the experience, but could it be that close victories in FoG2 are treated as draws in Empires?

As maybe FoG2 produces few draws, while Empires expects more (in closely balanced fights) in its strategic model.

What about the second account I made?
