I don't think there are many votes to come in now so I don't see a 50/50 split likely, although I do like the idea as a Plan B. I...

Data script error

I am playing a mirror MP game and after playing a few moves I have received a data script error message saying the data doesn't match that of my opponent and I should ask if he has changed data or script. It is recommended that I abandon the game. Whatsup?

Re: Late Antiquity: winners post your results here . . .

Once again the battle is shaped and dominated by the terrain and it’s all on the Roman left flank. First a forest and then well ahead of the Roman deployment a stream, over which lies a range of hills stretching up to the Gepid rear. Hills which are entirely covered with rough terrain. None of this...

Re: Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here

Div A

Cunningcairn - Viking 900-1049 AD (Irish ally) beat GDod - Ghaznavid 962-1187 AD (Turkish 600 -1036 allies) by 29% to 9%

GDod did the honourable thing and surrendered saving his troops for the opening of his fast food restaurant chain. Thanks for a good game where the dice favoured me.

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

A question for the historically better informed in our community: FoG necessairly deals only with what occurs on the battlefield, but what occurs on the battlefield is not the whole story. In fact, I would dare suggest that it's the lesser part of war. This might mean that we do things on the battl...

Re: Skirmishers!!

I think skirmishers are just another part of the game. I can understand that they can be frustrating to play against, but often they are beatable with the right unit selection and the right tactics. I recently beat Rex's Numidian/Moorish army with the LA Ptolemiac army, it was a close run thing, bu...

Hi

Kudos for this mod, complements the base game very well, working my way through a 15 battle campaign as Hannibal and really getting a kick out of it, thanks to any and all involved.
Fantastic mod!

Re: Poll on army selection rules

But wouldn't this just end up as 6 sections of themed events? I quite like the fact that some opponents are not historical. I think a bigger problem is mismatched opponents like heavy foot versus armies consisting entirely of a horde of skirmishers. The game thankfully doesn't model this type of co...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

I know that I keep banging on about no automatic cohesion loss for flank attacks by infantry units, but maybe something like superior foot units do not suffer automatic cohesion loss when attacked in the flank unless it is by another superior foot unit; or turn it around and say that raw infantry u...

Re: Poll on army selection rules

Good morning, The problem is to avoid unhistorical and anachronistic matcups between armies of different centuries. I have noticed that in the current league with my Greek army in the Classical Antiquity section and other sections of course. My proposal : The player with the highest rank in each di...

Re: Revised army lists for Season 6 . . .

The Biblical list will remain unchanged until we get the next Biblical DLC. Are you staying with 1600 points and TT Mod for the Biblical section? I expect so until we get the other Biblical DLC and then I'll take the hoplite armies out. Excellent! I still firmly believe the larger armies go a long ...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

The other possibility would be to target the troop types that make the horde armies so successful by increasing the size of their units to reduce their number of manoeuvre units, like we did with Raw Shieldwalls. I have just been looking at some of these horde armies with regard to this idea. With ...

Re: The Allies poll is now closed , , , 21-7 in favour of their introduction next season.

What I used to do back in the LOEG days was: For the period based leagues (e.g. Classical, Dark Ages etc.) each player is required to select a specific army list (e.g. Early Armenian – Tigran the Great) from the appropriate DAG (ROR, SOA, IF & SAS) and post it to the appropriate thread for their Le...
