Arrow I will spare the reader the equations this time, but will produce some if you want proof. Here are the combinations and their difference. The Anti - Skill's instant kill will be represented as a percentage of enemy health (because, if there are 20 legionaries, and one insant-dies, that is 1/2...

Finally, I think that anti-infantry might be worth a whole bunch more in, say, peasant v praetorian fighting (I would like to see the little level 3 peasant w/ swordsman, anti-infantry, and protection from infantry woop a level 5 praetorian, might do it too). I don't see that happening anytime soon...

The buttons are a bit messed up but i got a bit usd to them. To anyone who's played any of Slitherines TB strategy titles(Legion, Chariots of War, Spartan) the buttons are nearly identical. Guess it all depends on what your used to. Alot of the time after a combat a unit stops still as if resting. ...

Elephants

It was pointed out in the end of game army thread that no one was using Elephants in the single player game so of course I had to give them a try. Just finished Dog's Head and they've reached Lvl 11. They did extremely well against Phillip's Bodyguard and have done well overall. I originally thought...

Just ran through it again on hard with a different army setup and got a surprise. Met Phillips bodyguard head on with my Lvl 10 Elephants and Lvl 21 Principes. The Principes had already been in the thick of it and broke. But much to my surprise the Elephants stayed in and mauled the Bodyguard badly....

Add to that it takes a Principe 30xp to reach lvl 2 and a Legionary 40xp. At Level 22 it's Principe-55779xp and Legionary-74424xp. I just looked at some of my save games and there's no difference in stat gains between a Principe and Legionary, or any other unit for that matter. Every level gained ad...

I line up one of my best heavy infantry opposite each elephant with a unit of Velites positioned directly behind them. Infantry engages while the Velites shoot. Works quite well. I have tried in several battles to put my units in a good formation on terrain that gives me an advantage. But they alway...

I think it was Velites that won this one for me my last play through on Hard. Defeating everything except for the bodyguard wasn't that difficult. The bodyguard seem to have max armor and all defensive perks to boot. I simply hit them front and rear with 2-3 units at a time while my Velites poured o...

Building texts and other left overs

I'm curious are the building texts and others in the data folders leftovers from previous titles or features that got axed?

Thanks for the welcome Spedius01. Played around with the Celts a little and am now trying the Roman campaign on hard with an Imperial Legion. Surely less fighters = more kills = more XP for each? Depends on how XP is awarded. Seems the higher your level is over the opponents the less you get and vic...

Just finished the Roman campaign on Normal. Most of it seemed a little easy but like everyone else the time limited battles gave me some problems. The heavily armored phalanx's gave me the most difficulty but now I see the advantage of the Armor Piercing skill. I used a "pure" Republican Roman army ...
