Congratulations Ste! :D

Injecting new blood to the Slitherine team is a very good thing: All those games we are eagerly waiting for will be done in less time than before! :shock:

Duh, just a silly hope, I really NEED Legion Arena and Legion II :lol:

Hi gents,

Does this download include the last patch in it or do we need to download and install the patch after installing?

SNIP Orders before battle can be hold, advance, charge, outflank, similar to Spartan. In battle you can directly control a squad and order it to hold, breakoff, move or engage. Units can change formation in battle. The formations available depend on the skills you have chosen to give them. Formatio...

Issuing orders uses up order points, so it will definitely not be a click fest! The pre-battle orders allow you to do a lot and in game controls are for tweaking your battle plan rather than completely redploying your army. Hi Iain, The moree I read about game mechanics, the most I need to buy and ...

Hi Iaian, Those are great news. Thanks for the detailed response. The dark side effect is that I eagerly need to play this game now! Will the battle engine of Legion II have exactly those same features -- battle orders, changing formations, etc -- as the Legion Arena battle system? If so, that will ...

I play Sparta and Gates of Troy on the strategic side. I play them a huge lot lately... On the grand-tactical side, I always play Spcamo's Spww2 and Spmbt. I have all the Combat mission games also, but there are many unrealistic things there, specially the penetration formulas used, too much for my ...

Orders issued during battle?

Hi gents, Some questions: 1) Will orders be issued to individual units or you will be able to form Groups, Wings or Something-along-those-lines or the best of both worlds? 2)Which type of order will we able to issue? Something like 'stop', 'charge', 'advance', 'fire', 'stop firing', 'overwatch', 'de...

Hi Duncan, Thanks for the tips. Looks like you read my mind. This weekend I have played as Rome (hard level) and achieved the victory objectives after one bold and risky scenario begining. Later, as Lidia I have won against Persia and Bitinia (again, hard settings). :wink: I'm discovering that the k...

Thanks Iain :) Yesterday I tried my first Berserker scenario, set at medium level, and the AI won the day easily! I bought the games very recently, and need a lot more experience in order to win scenarios in Harder settings... Simply as it is, the AI overruns my tiny nation always! :cry: Its obvious...

Hi Iain, The scale almost fits perfectly. Marian and Caesar cohorts were made of 480 men. Each cohort made of six centurias of 80 men. Later, in the second half of the first century, the First Cohort have 800 men, divided in only five centurias. Cohorts 2-10 are maintained at almost 500 men. At this...

Question about difficulty levels and mods

Hi gents, I would like to know the different difficulty levels of the game, compared with Mods. That is, if you dont use mods: Easy would be 1, Normal 2, etc.. And if you are using the Berserk mod: Easy would be 2? Normal 3? etc..? Resuming, a comparison of difficulty between official game and berse...

Thanks Iain :) Thats a quick response. BTW, which will be unit scale? Will it be "companies" or "squads", a bit abstracted as in the 4X series? Or will they be cohorts? When playing CoW or Sparta-GOT I imagine that each man in a squad represents 10 men, so each units is more or less cohort size (or ...

Non core force support units?

Hi gents, Will you play the battles only with your core force or will exist the possibility to have some support units attached for specific battles? Something along the lines of the Steel panthers support units that you can purchase prior to each battle in campaigns? And, in that case, will the sup...

Capital

Hi gents,

Just a query about Capital cities: I would like capital cities to have a building bonus. Once you get it to brick level 7, give it 3 free building slots instead of only 1. That would differentiate and emphasize ancient capital greatness.

Thanks
Miki
