Re: Sneaking Out of a Besieged City

Personally I think you have some very atypical behaviour going on in your MP game there...

Have you had a script warning pop up at any time ?

My suspicion is modded files may be in use.....

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

I get his point that he wants you to break off your protection from them so that he can attack them, but then say that directly. For the avoidance of doubt Nabatea is of course my client state and will remain so. It's change of status was not part of the agreed peace deal though Egypt has agreed to...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

A simple explanation as to what happened in Jerusalem that is shown clearly in the playback. Any ally of Judea is encouraged to watch it to verify this is what in fact occurred... : There was no garrison in Judea region containing Jerusalem, Egyptian troops having been withdrawn as arranged. Seven J...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

You do realise Nabatea is an AI, right? Just asking cuz it doesn't seem so. It's not even controlled by a dog that you can scold, but something that is not living and not able to be influenced in any way apart from changing its inputs, which at the moment are "at war with Judea". Welcome to my worl...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Ptolemy, Nabatea has just attacked my Jerusalem liberation army for the second time. Either you restrain them, or Judea will be forced to react. If Nabatea will not accept our peace deal, then they are not included in the protection of the deal. Judea will, however, show restraint, and only take Tr...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

I should really post in here. Saka has accepted a peace treaty from the Selucids, as with the death of our allies, there is just to much land to the south to take. We will seek other, more peaceful, westernly options for expansion. (sorry Bactria, you were just in the way....) If you are still inte...

Re: False Allies

A very coherently argued piece as ever in favour of the argument Chaosbadger uses of always remaining a loyal ally. The point at which you lose me is when you say that even if a player has won two or three games in a row, because that player has proved a loyal ally then folks will be queuing up to a...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Those on steam may me be auto-patched without realising it, so it will probably be better just to message everyone to ignore the script warning when the patch comes out. Yeah I was thinking about this for our other game. Technically you can revert back to the previous version (usually) in the steam...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Some issues about the impact of patches on MP games. From the beta we found it was very easy for people to do their turn using different patches which in turn generated the error message for modified games. What I'd suggest is that when 1.4 is out Devoncop (don't want to dump responsibility on him ...

Re: False Allies

Changing sides abruptly in reality has few consequences in real life providing it is planned for. Think the Germans in WW2 in their treatment of the Soviets. Some armies even changed sides only when arriving on the battlefield. The Earl of Warwick amongst others did this during the Wars of the Roses...

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.

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...
