Best of luck. Its a superb battle to to try to recreate. I tried to build it, but gave up on the core problem of having half the combatants standing around, particulalry in a single player game. The solution that I worked on was a bit of a kludge - placing the two idle armies on broken ground and ma...

I am one of the few who voted for keeping the current system. Yes it is frustrating when your horse charge some MF in the rear and somehow get slaughtered for it, but I am sure that reflects a lot of the frustrations and anomalies in a battle situation. But the game still almost always favours the b...

Now I'm confused :).

Let me put it another way. The only way you can play Romans etc. in MP is to buy Rise of Rome, yet we have a bunch of units in the vanilla game being used in the scenarios. I was wondering if we could get further army lists out of them, or are they all represented in RoR.

I see your confusion, and have rephrased my question.

It is about using the units in the original FoG game within DAG.

Original FoG Armies in Multi-player

I know this is not available, but I never found out why not. Would it not be easy to turn these armies into DAG armies?

Wolves from the sea for me. While I can see the fun in all of them (and will probably buy them all whichever order they come in), my real love lies in the dark ages, with the sweeping tribal migrations. Besides, I'm Danish so kinda looking forward to going a-Viking. :wink: Wolves for me too, but as...

I take back my earlier post. The LF being caught in an earlier game were indeed MF after closer inspection, and subsequent games in 1.3.5 have had sensible evasion tactics all round. Indeed as Ian says - the best way to catch lights now is to block off their escape routes. Well, it might be the bes...

...and LF are still getting caught too often by HF for my liking. I don't think 1.3.5 has fixed this.

Pharsalus, a classic battle of of quality against quantity. Nicely balanced too - you can win playing either side.

French Ordonnance Mounted Longbowmen

Despite the name and the graphics, they can't actually fire their longbows. WAD?

Is this regarding situations like light cavalry not evading phalanxes? In which case - hoorah!

in the next update with S&S we can expect to get an option to order our lights and I think maybe cav to either act as they do now, stand and fight regardless or run away regardless. It will bring the game more into line with the TT where you can either try to stand or just evade with your lights. R...

I really agree with Gersen on this, as the chap on the other side of the battlefield for the Spartans v Skythians battle. It should have been an interesting match-up (I posted details of which army I was using btw when I issued the challenge - it wasn't an ambush!!!). But even as a newbie player al...
