Re: Field of Glory II Tournament Suggestions

Is there any mechanism by which players can choose their favourite Army to compete in a tournament with as is common in tabletop? If two players chose the same that wouldn't be an issue given banner colour differentiation..... To keep things fair maybe neither player should be aware of the map until...

Re: FOG II. Could this be the game for me ?

Bombax To put your mind at rest re the MP standard........although many MP players are no doubt happily beating the AI on the second highest or highest difficulty I never played Field of Glory 1 on pc or tabletop and find the second lowest or middle difficulty on AI to be about as high as I can mana...

Re: How to play as Sarmatian?

Thanks Richard.....yes of course they will.
As with much in this game it then boils down to whether the opposing army can benefit from the "bounce back" by having other units to follow up.

Re: How to play as Sarmatian?

If the right was only one round your logic works...but over multiple rounds the pikes will surely wear down the landers pretty quick given the respective unit sizes?

Re: FOG II. Could this be the game for me ?

Whilst agreeing with most of Alessandro's points (we have fought several epic battles in various match ups already so I can attest he knows his onions...,) I would dispute the point about frontal assaults. In fact the collapse of a flank through a well executed flanking move or Cavalry fights on the...

Re: Field of Glory II Tournament

+1 MP is by far the best way to learn. I never played FOG1 but through playing lots of MP....only one match abandoned by my opponent....I have learnt a lot. This is without scrutinising the manual line by line or reallocating Generals and their commands left right and centre (excuse the pun). I woul...

Re: Rules tweak and/or avoiding awkward tournament setups.

Interesting post. It is certainly challenging but not impossible to win the battles as both Macedon and Skythia. It can be argued the Macedonian forces are only facing the same problems as Rome faced v Parthia. Likewise Skythia has the same problems in defeating Macedon as Mithridates had as Pontus ...

Re: Dropped MP games

To be honest if someone hasn't picked up a game after 7 days rather than fight the AI I'd just prefer the game to end and be deleted from my list of ongoing games - its obvious at that point there not coming back and even if they did I wouldn't want them to have to face dealing with the results of ...

Re: Romanes Eunt Domus! Matches & Results

The High Command of Syracuse again thanks the Gods after their forces bested those of Appulia on the flat fields of Southern Italy.....Results 57% loss to Appulia..v ..19% loss for Syracuse.

I hard fought battle again resting on the heroic performance of the Syracuse Hoplites.

Great news from Spartacus.........at last a check on Roman tyranny....:-) Sadly it seems likely that Mithridates Forces may again be bested....Pontic forces overran the Roman centre in a hard fought struggle but the crushing defeat of Pontic Cavalry by Rome on the left flank and crumbling Imitation ...

Dropped MP games

Hi

Whilst 90%+ of my MP opponents have been brilliant there are a couple of opponents who have disappeared into the ether leaving the games cluttering up my games list...any way to "claim" the game of even just remove it from the list?
