Re: Interview with Philippe, Lead Designer of FOG Empires

It’s the first time I’ve been hearing one of your interviews and it was very interesting to understand the history of AGEOD and the way FOGE was designed. It was a long interview but interesting from the beginning to the end ! Edit : You should definitively try to do one with RBS, the FOG2 developp...

Re: Cavalry and Battle Frontage Solution

The Parthians screened their cataphracts with the horse archers and harassed the Roman formation causing mounting casualties(for some reason they did not form testudo at that point). The testudo is not conductive to throwing javelins or engaging in close quarters combat, so forming it might've rend...

think a lot of people are seeing these - seem to have no impact (beyond being a bit annoying). Since the Slitherine/matrix forums have just been relaunched my guess is it might be connected to that?
You have a point there. I am getting this also but only since the launch of the new websites.

Re: Cavalry and Battle Frontage Solution

What do you think of a battle like Carrhae ? Would it be modelled correctly by a stalemate of legions vs cataphracts + loss of roman cavary vs parthian cavalry on the flanks? Or something different? Close. I just read up on Carrhae in Peter Connelly's Greece and Rome at War. Crassus ignored advice ...

Re: Cavalry and Battle Frontage Solution

Geffalrus originally brought up the Battle of Magnesia, stating that the heavy cavalry beat Roman infantry on that flank by charging into them. In point of fact, they routed light infantry and cavalry, which then rallied and repelled the elite heavy cavalry. That's why I keep mentioning it. As for ...

Re: Cavalry and Battle Frontage Solution

I appreciate your contribution to the discussion. However, people who study military history in depth didn't make the video or the Wikipedia entry. They teach at military academies, and they teach that this was the Age of Infantry. Great states with professional, well equipped infantry armies ruled...

Re: Has Field of Glory Empires been a commercial success?

Paradox succeed without a tactical battle system. They have the privilege and momentum of a huge player base, good for them! We definitively want to continue support Empires, rest assured :) Do you mean support by realising DLC or the real support? You certainly don't see a long list of DLC with AG...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

"We have no plans to change the amount of randomness in the game." Absolutely agree!! Having played wargames as long as I have, nothing really surpises me about "dice rolls". Like the time the Gardner gun jammed 3 times in a row and the Dervish...you get the idea. But this kind of thing does happen...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

I can't help but go back to my TT FOG experience on this since cohesion loss for a flank attack is just an integral part of the game. Maybe it is easier to achieve in the PC game because of the smaller unit footprint. It is a balance though because hitting infantry in the flank should be devastating...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Dare I suggest that part of the problem might lie in the fact the game doesn't model professional armies terribly well. For the most part, the game deals with a collection of individual units, which might be apporpriate to an army of Gallic warband, but less apporpriate to an army like a late Repub...

edb1815 Arab (North Africa) 1000-1160 w/ Byzantine allies defeated Doyley50 Viking 900-1049: 58%-22%


Good game. The Arab foot held out just long enough for the Arab and Byzantine cavalry to cave in a flank. Good use of the mounted Huscarls by Doyley.
