Re: Make Cavalry Great Again

Glad to hear ideas for uses of troops on the strategic scale. Adding systems to the abstract battle engine seems complicating to compared with the more direct battle simulation of the tactical module in FOG2 that looks like a battle and seems to me more readily understandable and offering more oppor...

Re: Question and Answer Thread on Game Mechanics.

Yes it appears to me that the outflanked unit in the battle viewer gets pre-empted and does not benefit from a roll. - - - - - - - - RAIDING: How exactly do you set up a raid? Since the Raid button manifests only on the army panel, does there need to be at least one military unit present at the bord...

Question and Answer Thread on Game Mechanics.

EXPERIENCE: The manual says units gain experience from winning a battle. How is it distributed among units after a victory? Can units be groomed in heavier fighting in battle? Can abilities of generals change? Or buff units in any way other than the +1 in the battle line and ability to get the parti...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Tutorials - Battles and Regions

Regarding regions, would this be a good place to ask how to find the the button that creates a province?

I have not come across a Q & A thread in the forum. I have read in the manual and in-game both that half the provinces is enough and that more than half is required.
Thanks

Re: Anyone else find it annoying that Youtubers .....

Having a broader frontage and thus not being outwinged on either flank is a key element of victory. In real life, and FOG2 a smaller army might maneuver for a secure position or use flank guards and terrain against a more numerous foe. A high quality force of legions can greatly benefit from this on...

I was up so long that I flagged before it eventually did launch. Now I can't progress as how to swap units among stacks is not explained (posted elsewhere). Thanks for your kind attention.

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Tutorials - Military Operations

This series is good stuff sis the manual but but I have a roadblock The manual "10.1.2 confidently states "Across the top of the unit panel are a series of orders you can give. Split and Merge allow you to move units between stacks or to create a new stack. " After half an hour (more now) of attempt...

Thanks - it sounds like the limiting factor is who is able to do turns quickly and how often the bio/planning/negotiation breaks.

Opening the PBEM on desktop is much faster than loading Steam with its overhead and clutter Slitherine used to have a messaging app to PC desktop for PBEM turn notifications. Is that still the case?

Re: Autodeploy out of deploy zone

Does the autodeploy function still work? I am missing its use in multiplayer and SP games in particular. It can save time and feel more appropriate.

Have I done something to turn iit off that I can fix?
