Re: False Allies

One other issue with this is that it is pretty unrealistic as Greek States were notorious for continually switching sides and allies in one war would very rapidly become enemies in the next. In ancient times Thebes was notorious for continually switching sides, fighting both for and against the Pers...

I think Devoncop is beginning to understand what drove the Babylonians and the Romans into tearing down temples.

Re: False Allies

The idea of a cooldown on an Alliance after it is broken before an attack can be made is a good one. The only exception should be if an ally attacks the ally of a second nation. That second nation, despite being allied to the aggressor should not be prevented from defending their ally by declaring w...

Re: False Allies

What players must realise is that the whole raison d'etre of the game is to win by achieving the highest legacy score. If an ally is amassing a commanding lead in legacy it makes zero sense to remain allied with that player in anything other than the short term. You are merely playing the part of th...

Re: Activating the heavy infantry upgrade stops Judea from building them. Bug or WAD?

After finally building the needed Arsenal, I was able to take the decision to improve my heavy infantry. I am playing Judea. I had been able to build heavy infantry in every province where I had a training ground. However, when I tried to build some heavy infantry after the upgrade, the display tol...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

So does Ptolemy approve of this compromise? This will satisfy Judea's wishes, and I see no reason why Ptolemy would object. The offer is accepted provided no raiding of any kind occurs on Egyptian,Arabian or Nabatean regions. Judea accepts. However, by next turn, Jerusalem must be fully restored to...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Judea's compromise suggestion is this: Seeing as how Judea's two reasons for wanting the extra region are to form the province and remove an Arabian region in Judea's rear, taking the region, forming the province, and then abandoning the region will satisfy both of Judea's wishes and be entirely ac...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

One can also see Geffalrus is sending you gold from his screenshots. That confused me initially too....I put that to the Antigonids and they denied sending money...... The screenshot actually says "Antigonus of the Seleucids" sent the money. If I remember correctly the Seleucids are now being ruled...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

All demolition of Jerusalem's facilities has already been stopped and food production resumed. A garrison has however been placed in the city which will remain until the demand for a further Red Sea region is withdrawn. The actions of Nabatea are (as Judea is well aware) outside of the control of Eg...

Tragedy in the Aegean! The Antigonid Royal News reports a terrible accident off the coast of Troy. Drunk on Greek wine stolen from the concession stand at the Troy Museum, the Pictish navigator of Caledonian Cruiselines ran into some rocks and sank the flimsy craft. There were no survivors.
