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...

Re: False Allies

The idea of a cooldown on an Alliance after it is broken before an attack can be made is a good one. The only exception should be if an ally attacks the ally of a second nation. That second nation, despite being allied to the aggressor should not be prevented from defending their ally by declaring w...

Re: False Allies

What players must realise is that the whole raison d'etre of the game is to win by achieving the highest legacy score. If an ally is amassing a commanding lead in legacy it makes zero sense to remain allied with that player in anything other than the short term. You are merely playing the part of th...

Re: Activating the heavy infantry upgrade stops Judea from building them. Bug or WAD?

After finally building the needed Arsenal, I was able to take the decision to improve my heavy infantry. I am playing Judea. I had been able to build heavy infantry in every province where I had a training ground. However, when I tried to build some heavy infantry after the upgrade, the display tol...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

So does Ptolemy approve of this compromise? This will satisfy Judea's wishes, and I see no reason why Ptolemy would object. The offer is accepted provided no raiding of any kind occurs on Egyptian,Arabian or Nabatean regions. Judea accepts. However, by next turn, Jerusalem must be fully restored to...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Judea's compromise suggestion is this: Seeing as how Judea's two reasons for wanting the extra region are to form the province and remove an Arabian region in Judea's rear, taking the region, forming the province, and then abandoning the region will satisfy both of Judea's wishes and be entirely ac...
