Re: Absorbing a Client state ... how?

If you own regions on them on three sides I know there is a 10% chance per turn they will hand over a region to you but as for assimilation relations would need to be higher than just 50% .

Re: Hyping up Epirus ... a partial AAR

Hi loki! You say "I have plenty of money but this will slow pop growth" ... What is the rationale behind this statement? I didn't know that money blocked pop growth or am I missing something in the mechanism of the game? On the other hand - given that I'm also playing a SP Epirus campaign, though w...

Re: Opponent’s script does not match?

Hi I have started a game with another player, and on my second turn was greeted by a message that said something like “This player’s scripts do not match yours. It is recommended you abandon this game and report on forum” I was able to play my turn as normal - and here I am asking does anyone know ...

Re: How to increase manpower

Thanks guys. To be honest I tried with enhancing the number of population but it does seem to have a very very limited effect on manpower while, on the other hand, it seems there are really few buildings helping this way. I fear it will end up with my Epirote campaign stalling for lack of soldiers ...

Re: Surviving as the Ptolemies

Thanks for the tips. Did not know that fleets could block enemy trade, I might try that in the future although I'm not sure how well that would work. After posting this I restarted my Ptolemy game. Ended up essentially leaving some skirmishers in a starting fort to block Antigonid movement and lett...

Re: Leaders

I think repeatedly it has been proven that education can actually kill creativity, with the most common example of a general performing poorly being one that lacks adaptability despite significant education and even experience (many games have an old guard negative modifier). Creativity and being a...

Re: (how not to) Play as Carthage

I have played Carthage through to the end and won. It is important to remember this game is a a marathon, not a sprint. As suggested above choose the right regions to invade. The islands in the Med are important, use them for staging platforms to invade Spain, Spain is more important than Nubia and...

Re: Leaders

Leader generation is a bit strange : as Carthage I have like 6 crappy generals (0, +1 max..), I know it's not a very good nation for leaders, but any backwater barbaric band that attack me from the desert has a +2 leader, or at least +1 ? This is not very realistic, to get good generals you need po...

Re: Captured Regions

Quick question. Couldn't find in the manual. How long after you capture a region until you can build in it? The only reason you maybe are unable to build immediately is if the population is insufficient as it does not exceed current buildings in the region. Once pacification is over the population ...

Re: Loyalty Increase??

The more markets you build the bigger the chance and more frequent is the chance to get a Decision Event allowing to go either well slaves, buy them or distribute them more equally through your nation.

Re: Loyalty Increase??

Is there any other ways to increase loyalty besides a few of the purple buildings? I tried stationing troops in city and in region but it only changed 'chance to revolt' I think. The CDR thing is really kinda ruining this game for me. I've conquered all of the Spanish peninsula, usually waiting unt...

Re: (how not to) Play as Carthage

I think one of the gaps in the game is lack of ability to get rid of regions. Often time I capture simply because I'm chasing an army, but I don't really want the region. I think some options are needed to: * Diplomatically gift a region. * Create a client state out of captured regions. * Free a re...

Won’t be back at my computer until this evening after I get off work and have supper. Hope there’s still a place open by then :?

If not, seems like there’s plenty of active interest in MP, should be able to get another set up :)
You are OK so far.........9 of 16 taken at time of report :wink:

Thanks for starting a new game Ian. I've joined up, I'm looking forward to the carnage that commences :lol: I'm currently Macedonia but that was to get a slot in the game, I'm quite content to play one of the smaller nations, especially if we have some greeks who don;t want the big bad Macedonia on...
