Re: Killer Stacks

I'm saying exactly what I wrote - the maintenance costs for elite units are higher. This only applies at that level and of course you can't 'buy' an elite unit (in terms of experience) Clear as mud to this pleb but I went to the manual and with some searching, figured it out myself. Every unit has ...

Re: Killer Stacks

this is actually in the game, elite units cost more to maintain than others. So are you saying the maintenance costs go up with each increase of experience or are you saying if you buy an elite unit, the maintenance costs are higher? ...

Re: Default Elite level for Roman Legions for transferred battles to FOG2

the basic value is amended for (a) differences in command competence, (b) differences in effectiveness

even +1 on the command values can make a real difference

Re: Loyalty behavior

some guesses. I presume this German mob is an independent army not a tribal faction? if so, an indy army in an adjoining region is a big hit on regional loyalty - so that might explain some of what you are seeing? Now if the region you lost was German cultured, then I think that might be why they ha...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

actually yes ... the Picts sort of did. The place name 'Tarbert' means a portage point between 2 bodies of water (while its actually Norse-Scots Gaelic in origin there is some evidence it was a word adapted from the original Pictish - Irish-Gaelic uses a different word for the same concept), there a...

Re: AI Antigonids conquered half the world...now what?

theres a random element in this (at least I think so) as I've seen them collapse when losing a war but not actually already old. in my last game, a load of nations spawned over the next couple of turns to fill the gaps but there was about 40-50 years with some very strong independent armies stomping...

If you are still intending to post a you tube lets play on this game I will be very interested to see how the Saka have been to play, never having chosen them as yet. Yeah, I've got a load of turns built up. I'll set start posting them when we are nearer the end. I just had a message that the Saka ...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Some issues about the impact of patches on MP games. From the beta we found it was very easy for people to do their turn using different patches which in turn generated the error message for modified games. What I'd suggest is that when 1.4 is out Devoncop (don't want to dump responsibility on him b...

Re: AI Antigonids conquered half the world...now what?

its unusual in the main, but I have seen it when I play a relatively minor faction - so have little early game impact. If the Antigonids survive, they are indeed well placed. The capital problem, is that it can move. So have a look for where it is currently - you'll often see the region on the map a...

Tragedy in the Aegean! The Antigonid Royal News reports a terrible accident off the coast of Troy.
