Re: "240 BC Grand Campaign"

Likewise Varity. A worthy winner of this battle. Best of luck for you in the Tournament and in this campaign going forward. I blame the mechanics not my opponent . My concern was that I had to rush forward to get to your line inviting a hail of skirmish fire and inevitable outflanking by your overwh...

Houston we have a problem......

Hi Well I am now 5 or so turns from the designated 16 turn end of my battle with Varity (I have the slow pike heavy Ptolemaics, he the Cavalry and skirmish heavy Carthaginians). To no one's great surprise, least of all mine, he has placed his infantry line near the back of the map around rough terra...

Re: "240 BC Grand Campaign"

Name names........Who are the guilty? Ptolemy has always stood firm against such aggression which is why the Eastern expansion of Carthage must be checked. Ashoka the Great, Emperor of Tha Mauryans, speaks the language of the initiates. Who has a rightful heart and open ears will understand, who sl...

Re: "240 BC Grand Campaign"

Words have reached Ashoka's the Great pious ears that two warlike and arrogant rulers in the far west, haters of love and mankind, are spreading disorder and grief in their vain and insane lust for power coming from rotten pastures and fruitless sands. He prays every day the Gods, that are so benev...

Re: "240 BC Grand Campaign"

The Greeks were swept aside by Macedon 46% to 15% despite a curiously subdued performance by the Veteran Macedonian Phalanx units....who apparently were unimpressed by the change of leadership after the Macedonian Palace coup!) :wink:

Messinia falls to Macedon.

Ruthless generalship by 76mm........

Bear in mind that if you to for lower turn limits then you will disproportionately favour skirmish heavy armies who inflict most of their casualties in the first ten turns or so.....

Re: "240 BC Grand Campaign"

After braving a hail of arrows and javelins the victorious Western Ptolemaic Army has prevailed and won the battle of Crn Province securing Ptolemy's western border.

Score 44% to 15%.

Thanks to my gallant opponent Ironclad who did a great job with a weak hand !

Re: "240 BC Grand Campaign"

With the 14 turn rule, maybe a casualty percentage requirement could be set at that point, which if not reached finishes the battle at that point due to inaction. So, if neither side has inflicted, say 15 or 20% casualties by that time it's considered over. I for one would feel quite aggrieved if I...

Lysimachus, sorry for another idea, but i wanted to mention one more: for diplomatic reasons, i think it would be cooler if players didn’t know who was sponsoring independent attacks—more room for double-crossing, etc. Players could send their sponsored indepedent attack orders to you via pm, and y...

Re: "240 BC Grand Campaign"

Regarding the first proposal devoncop already specified why it is impossible. About the second I'm not of that idea given the fact that the army has to remain that of the conquering nation. When the Romans invaded Macedon they continued to rely on the legion and not switched to the phalanx and the ...

Just noticed your post re 14 turns. I must have missed that rule change. when was that decided?

We can just play to 14 and the loser can concede this one
Snap.....though 76mm and I play quickly and aggressively so won't be an issue in our game.
