Re: A question of allies

This is likely to have been caused by the bug that affects the tooltip display for battles from mods such as TT Mod and Silk Road. It is due to the MP games list refreshing while the game is in the process of setting up the tooltip, so that the tooltip creation routine references the wrong ArmyList....

Re: Diagonal Flank Breach Tactics?

The flank attack shown in your diagram will not work because the game will not let you charge between the other two units that are in close combat.

Re: deleting saved games

Is there anyway to delete more than one old saved game at a time? or do you have to delete them one at a time? In game you have to delete them one at a time. It is however safe to delete old ones from /Documents/My Games/FieldOfGlory2/SAVES using Windows File Explorer. This will not affect anything...

Re: Combat Result predictions

melm has hit on the reason for the apparent anomaly - the tooltip is written from the point of view of the enemy Noble Cavalry, which is the unit you have moused over.

What you've said is one case which I encountered before, but what I said is that I am not in the game but in MP lobby for long time and then the game freezes.
I see. Well in that case we will have to see what Pip says.

Re: Newbie needs some help

If you have extremely high quality units you might want to disband them and get new ones. This mainly concerns units like the legionaries who are typically good enough to beat almost anything out of the box and after a few battles the low total number of units will hurt you more than the excessive ...

Re: Game not responding if idle for long time

After a while AFK in an MP game the game pauses to prevent the non-action from being recorded in the replay. I think there should be a way of unlocking it, but I have forgotten what it is. I will ask Pip. In the meantime, if you have to go AFK during an MP game turn, I suggest you Save and Exit the ...

Re: Kill List

I wouldn't mind counter like this, although I don't think it describes the unit's performance in any meaningful way as casualties are a very small factor in the real performance of the unit. In some cases large number of inflicted casualties might actually mean ineffective use of the unit. More imp...

Re: Newbie needs some help

On the other hand, if your native troops suffered heavy losses, it is wiser to go with reinforcements from home to refill your ranks as understrengthed units are less effective. It is worth mentioning that this partly depends on how homogeneous your forces are. If you have a lot of units of the sam...

Re: Newbie needs some help

Thanks Karvon! I actually just did what you suggested before reading your post - I noticed that warbands will pursue, so I held my main force back and used a bunch of light javelin horses and javelins to pick away at the warbands until they had scattered out and then encircled and defeated them.

Re: Newbie needs some help

Sorry, I don't quite understand what you mean. My main question is if African Spearmen should charge Warband troops? It doesn't seem to typically go well. Sorry if I wasn't clear It depends. Generally speaking, African Spearmen have disadvantage against warband at impact phase, impact POA is 100 vs...

Re: What is the reasoning that crossbow diffs effect against cav and foot while bow doesn't

Curious to know the historicity behind the design. We are drawing a balance between: 1) Crossbow lower rate of fire. 2) Chinese use of crossbows vs nomad cavalry. 3) Crossbow better vs armour than ordinary bows. 4) Crossbow loses in a duel vs longbows. (Although other reasons have been put forward ...

Re: Why no Tours/Poitiers?

We were limited on the number of Epic Battles we could include, and we were trying to show off as many of the new armies as possible. Tours/Poitiers did not make the cut.
