Re: Battle of Alalia

My next approch is to use the rocky terrain as a barrier by stationing my militia & skirmishers as I have been doing, but placing the remainder of my forces on the lefthand side of the field (open terrain). This will force the enemy to cross the rocky terrain, where my militia & skirmishers have th...

Battle of Alalia

I'm having a real difficult time winning this battle. I'm successful in reaching kills, but I am unable to take out the leader before I hit the limit for losses. I'm using my militia in the rocky area, supported by skirmishers. This works well. I'm able to rout the fanatics w/ a militia & skirmisher...

Hm, I've ignored block and dodge so far in my first run through in the Roman campaign, even feint. I've been ramping up in other areas. I probably should use dodge before the elephants arrive. :wink:

Once in desperation in the Roman Campaign, I tried fleeing with one division aorund the map. Cowardice I know, but... . It didn't work. My army was getting routed, and once my fleeing archers were the last division they turned and fought. I ended up "winning" on my next attempt by using the terrain ...

Dinari

It seems to me that accumulating denari is a slow process, which is likely meant by the programmers. Is there a method of garneishing more dinari from a battle that I might be missing? Does the pillage rate for dinari increase as you progress through the campaigns? Right now, I'm in the 3rd Samnite ...

Played the demo yesterday and decided to buy it this morning, downloaded installed entered code, opened it up. Now I'm confused. It opens where I left it in the demo, but clicking on campaigns takes me to the choices of latins, romans and celts and only the latnins are available, the other two bein...

We intend and want to give a release date as soon as we feel our prediction can be accurate enough and not settle with less. We want the whole process of release date, game performance and patching to be quick and predictable to avoid failing to meet customer expectations. This is my first post on ...

Herbalist + Upgrades = Trouble

Okay, maybe not trouble. But, I find this structure extremely annoying in regards to the number of citizens created to the point I'm constantly having to build peasants and disband them. The herbalist works well until I've got enough workers in all my cities, then it becomes an issue of micromanagem...

I see....dead people. But anyway, I certainly hope Slitherine and VPLtd. can sit down and bring Legion Arena, now that it's back to SP, and Legion II to the mac platform. 8)
