Re: I stopped MP since the lobby fosters ill will

The proper reaction to wanting to play more turns is to issue or accept more challenges, not to pressure the opponent to do more turns.

Re: Problem of Byzantine complexity.....

Looking at the lists you have way more shooters than the Byzantines do. While their cavalry can somewhat shoot, you can mostly ignore the 50% bow guys since if they are shooting they are not charging which is right where you want them to be. Foot shooters should win pound versus pound versus horse s...

Re: 500 AD global campaign - Year 512 battles are up

Back at the computer, looking forward to the new campaign, and I would like to say great battles with all the players (mostly Jomni). We had some real nail biters. I think looking back, we probably should have crammed the players closer for more insane action. Whether that means losing provinces, or...

Re: 500 AD global campaign - Year 512 battles are up

I'm going to be away from computer for a while, so I would like to have Liang moves and battles auto resolved or have someone sub for me. I'll be back in time for 516 battles, either taking up Liang or another nation.

Re: The development of firearms and proximity to nomads

That is a beautiful rifle, and thanks for the information. I know matchlocks, flintlocks, and wheelocks, but never knew about the snaplocks and its related cousins the snaphauces. The technology backflow from Russia to Mongols make a lot of sense, and the artwork in game does show a relatively moder...

Re: The development of firearms and proximity to nomads

Thanks for the responses. I would think reloading on horseback for matchlocks to be a very dicey proposition, even if moving at very slow walking speeds. I mean several steps have you holding a lighted match burning on both ends on one hand and your powder being poured on the other. If there is a bu...

The development of firearms and proximity to nomads

I've been reading Kenneth Chases's thesis on Why the Chinese invented firearms, but the Europeans perfected them in his book Firearms: A Global History.

Re: 500 AD global campaign - Year 508 battles are up

I still have 2 stalled games, but haven't heard from my opponent for almost a month. I don't think our main lines had impacted yet, so I would say we should go ahead and auto resolve instead. These games are Sassanids (Standard Nerd) army to fight Hunas client in Dahae Sassanid vs Caucasian in Stepp...

Re: 500 AD global campaign - Year 508 battles are up

Thanks for reporting the game Jomni. That was very well played turning manuever on your part. I have to rethink future tactics and deployments to try and head those off. We're beginning to think Cataphracts and armored cavalry do poorly versus masses Crossbow armies like many Chinese lists. I have t...

Re: Early Antiquity?

Thanks for the responses. One theory that I favor was that Chariots were a way of using small, weak, horses unsuited for cavalry. So the theory goes, you either need a cavalry trained and bred horses (large, good for charging European horses, or smallish, high endurance, good for long term riding mo...

Re: Early Antiquity?

Glad to hear this. Anyone remember Slitherine's own and great 'Chariots of War'? Loved the time period with Gish Battle Carts running people over. Utter tanks versus everything except well ordered spears in the open. Anyone know why usage of chariots are so spotty and inconsistent throughout the wor...

Re: 500 AD global campaign - Year 508 battles are up

Hey Jomni, I'm being hit by that random generals name script error. I'll try your fix for now, but if not look for some remade games. For bookkeeping/Nijis, I've picked up 2 games from standard nerd. These are. Sassanids (Standard Nerd) army to fight Hunas client in Dahae Sassanid vs Caucasian in St...

Re: 500 AD global campaign - Year 508 battles are up

No worries, I'll be available to pick up a couple of player versus NPC games as the NPC. A couple of battles look interesting, and I need a change in scenery.

*edit* Just grabbed 2 more battles, so my plate is full this round.

Re: 500 AD global campaign - Year 508 battles are up

I'll get my turns in soon. My observation is that the real and game world is realistically too big! On the Chinese side I've fought a ton of battles (mostly for reunification) since the incentive to go elsewhere is too small. It's going to be a long while till we can get so called crack match ups (R...
