Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

Btw shouldn't we have an Arverni too? Their starting army of 6 heavies, 6 medium and 6 skirmishers is considerable enough for quick conquests and if given some time, can become a powerhouse too. They are not worse choice than Arabia or Iberii for example. Although it is detrimental to me as Rome, I...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

Indeed, I'll be sending envoys to neighbours to agree on terms and areas of influence. But as a true Spartan, I'll keep it short and swift. None of this flowery language malarky. Oh thank Zeus for that. Both ledo and devoncop are extremely long winded. :wink: To be fair, they both played factions w...

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

I'm sorry if you got that impression, I personally don't think you made the wrong call at all. I'd absolutely ride the Antigonid train, hope to get more out of it than they do, then turn on them with the seleucids when I had the chance. Note for future antigonids players when I am macedon: I love y...

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

As I was saying, I am fine with how game played out. What I was complaining here is what metagame turned to in several last days. Was just saying that if people are unhappy (from their ingame standpoint) how I did or think that I acted irrational as a player they should have done something about it...

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

I think games are more fun when all players use the same conditions as winning. No alliance should be forever. Remember that I explicitly and publicly gave Geffalrus promise of 10 turn warning before any hostilities, implying that it will end eventually, and that was when our alliance was very impo...

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

I'm would not be interested in this particular proposal, that's something I just quickly wrote as an example. If I tell on you to Antigonids, even if I show exact message (although this is something I try to avoid), so what? Player X does not like big Antigonids with strong alliances and tries to t...

Thanks, I see. Please notice that "tl;dr Stay calm and keep playing. Use diplomacy, not propaganda. Put your nation first, this is both in the spirit of the game AND in the spirit of time period.

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

In short, you were not communicating with me as you should have been, for your own sake, not mine, which was exactly my point. Everything is overthought and overcomplicated. In other news, it looks like sacred Pocus oracle is angry with Macedonian state. The messages of pythias are criptic, as they...

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

Interesting again. I was definitely at fault not contacting Macedon early on. The garrison mechanic is useful in certain circumstances but not with multiple enemies moving region to region taking your territory. In one turn I was able to check the Antigonids and defeat totally the field army of the...

Heya, International Bad Boy here :evil: :twisted: 8) :P Sorry, I don't have much time so I will write long and out of character instead of short and in character. It would be somewhat harsh on people and I would have preferred to write in character later, but discussion moves so fast I think I have ...

That's in status age penalty. Sorry, Pocus, but I still don't understand ;( ;( ;( (no crying smile? this forum is literally unusable! :lol: ) Here are two screenshots where AI Belgium has 0 Status age decadence at age 35 and It does not seem to be increasing, definitely not by 3% per year.

Re: Is the decadence mechanism need a bit of tweaking?

Bump.

Could somebody, please, weight in on the decadence from age at stable government question?

In all my testing I get negative decadence from being stable, but I only have MP games running currently, so I can't test very late turns.

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

Nobody doubts that King of Macedon can come up with infinite exquisite taunts and undeniable arguments on why he and his allies should rule Italy and beyond. Unfortunately, our King is too busy between his private estate and Queen of Macedon, so he only has time to order the troops around. Romans an...
