Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Ptolemy has now been briefed that the "war" is one mutually agreed between Judea and Antigonus to allow Judea complete freedom to seize both Syria and Phoenicia Provinces unopposed when the recently signed Treaty specifically mentions that Judean expansion is only agreed by Egypt in Nabatean Provinc...

Have you checked your Spam folder? They could potentially land there even if the game start ones get through.

I have checked but nothing is in there. I would say about 50% of my games ( I have about ten on the go :D )are being notified to me by email when my turn is ready to play.

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

Breaking News !!

Antigonids apparently at war with Judea with the ink barely dry on the Judea/Palestine Treaty signed between Judea, Ptolemaic Egypt and Antigonus only last year ........Is this confirmation Antigonids have decided to strike East ?

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

The Spysheet owns many telescopes in many lands. Phalanxes and Silver Shields show up very clearly in such spyglasses😉 Joke's on you! Judea only has skirmishers and medium infantry! Which, may I mention, is sufficiently elite to beat phalanxes in open battle. Zealots are OP. Surely you don't suspec...

I do hope it has proper coverage of the festivals currently being held in Scotland :) Events in the Highlands form the lead story of our next edition.

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

So when is the second issue of the Ptolemaic-government-sponsored Papyrus Spysheet coming out? Probably once he gets some juicy gossip from Bactria. In the meantime, the Antigonid army is engaged in some top secret military maneuvers. Not even the Ptolemaic pharaoh with his telescope in Alexandria ...

Re: Ptolemaic Turn 158 Victory: Short AAR (SP, Balanced AI)

good stuff, looks like you played the Ptolemies to their advantages. Essentially defensive, grab separated locations to need rather than worry about land connections and rely on your powerful navy to keep it all together? You prob got a bit lucky that Aethopia remained relatively quiet, in games wh...

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

The editor of the Papyrus Spysheet has no knowledge of when any "government sponsored" publication of that name is to be issued but the august publication of which he is honoured to be the editor ( recently awarded "Most Impartial Authoritative Broadsheet of 310BCE" ) will be published at the end of...

Re: AI at higher difficulties, kinda weak?

Ah yes I forgot. The game is balanced with the FOG:E battle system, not FOG II. It is worth reiterating this point again. You will NOT get a balanced challenging game of you play out battles from Empires in FoG2 unless you are a pretty inexperienced player of FoG2. Empires is balanced for battles b...

Re: Blockaded regions can't build ships?

It appears harbours are deactivated and thus can't build ships if the region is blockaded. This means in some cases there could be no way of defeating an enemy at sea if they begin the war with naval superiority. Who thought this was a good idea? Entirely sensible design decision in my view. If you...

That's what I figured afterwards. But then, is this some little glitch? Shouldn't it say, "Can't afford" or whatever?
A minor glitch maybe. Yes.

Re: Can't Build Hvy Inf??

It looks like the reason is actually you have insufficient money to afford the purchase cost....Cost appears to be 75 gold but you only have 70 in your Treasury. :D

Re: A (Hopefully Not) Brief History of Iberii

No wonder you chose this AAR with Superman as leader. My current Dacian halfwit is so suspicious of his military that I am allowed the grand total of 1 General (who naturally is a political appointee by the insecure imbecile) and as well as being a coward boasts the awe inspiring 0-1 combat ability....
