Hey, I'm living it up in Dacia, which I guess is too minor to be work making the tabloid press... It's OK, I'm not upset... no really, I'm not upset!... and I don't bear grudges :twisted:

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

The attack/defence mechanic is killing combat... Agreed. It forces weird strategic decisions and exacerbates the finicky-ness of how attack/defense gets determined in individual cases. Being at such a disadvantage defensively with most armies where attack values > defense values makes it super anno...

Re: Brilliant strategy by Rome AI

In my current game as Judea, Rome leads the world in legacy, and has for many turns. Rome has taken all of Italy, southern Germany, Illyria, Dalmatia, Dardania, and the surrounding areas, Epirus, Greece, Macedonia, Thracia, nearly all of Anatolia, and southern Gaul. They have not had a major war wi...

Re: False Allies

I suspect for some countries the only option they have to win the game is to ally with a more powerful country to get through the difficult times at the start and then to break the alliance later. Realistically breaking of an alliance is most effective when it is a surprise, otherwise you know the m...

Re: False Allies

History is replete with instances of one ally breaking an alliance and attacking the other. As the game stands it takes two turns to break an alliance and then declare war, in my view this is plenty of warning. +100 Agree completely. I agree with this completely too. It happened in Greek times, thr...

I'm currently scouting Lycia at present ( I'm actually on holiday in Lemnos... Lycia is the closest equivalent on the map) so don't be surprised if Dacia heads South :wink: . I'm keeping abreast of the situation (via my tablet) so hopefully won't miss the start... I've also brought a laptop with me ...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

I'll take the advice that was offered, and I ignored, before the last game.. put me down for Dacia.

I like the challenge of the smaller countries... hopefully I'm smarter and wiser to last a little longer now.

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Btw, I agree with ledo that this sharing of private communique on the public forum (seen in the other MP game out there) to be terribly bad taste . Diplomacy is done on the basis of trust and when that is not possible, then there can be no diplomacy. Could we agree not to share private messages? Fo...

I'm still interested, but I go on vacation for a week from Saturday 7th and returning late on Saturday 14th, so if the game starts before then it'll have to be without me... you won't miss me, based on my last performance!

Re: Ethnic, loyalty, unrest, and ideal pop size seems backwards

bumping this thread because people seem to think culture converting your pop is a good thing.... Note it was written before the change to max 8 unrest for main ethnic. However it doesnt change the fact they are in most cases the worst pop type. Also worth noting as i didn't noticed before but other...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Yes, I'm willing to try that. Given the spread of the Tier 2-3 locations it would bias the game more towards diplomacy and trade and give time for countries to build before war comes. What's a good list of interesting tier 2 powers that border the majors? - Epirus - Athens/Aetolia/Achaea - Pontus -...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

I wonder if the game would be better if the Tier 1 countries were excluded as playable armies? I think that would be a very interesting game if all the humans took tier 2 powers and worked together to try and divide the tier 1 powers, creating new empires in the process. After that, we'd have a new...

Elaborating on what devoncop said- let's breakdown starting nations' strength into four components: economy current (EC), economy potential (EP), military current (MC), military potential (MP). EC is the starting buildings and number of regions a nation has, EP is what you for your economy based on...
