The army allocations for Classical Antiquity, Late Antiquity and Biblical have now been posted on the forum. Please note that some armies may have their start and end dates adjusted by the new DLC that is being released on Thursday. I will check this on Friday and if there is anyone with an army that has been affected I will confirm the precise dates of the army they are to use by PM. In some circumstances this may mean the player choosing between earlier or later armies.

Re: Late Antiquity - including army allocations for Season 5

Post by klayeckles » Tue May 28, 2019 11:20 pm

i'm curious about the allocation process...it seems i must have a misunderstanding, as i figured that my first choice was a shoe in as no one else chose it, and my 3rd as well. But i ended up with my 4th. So was only one army of each nationality allowed (regardless of the multiple versions for different years) or something else? public posting here just so we can clarify for next time.

i guess i can take my lumps with the hephthalites...but anyone that beats me there's an astrick by your victory! :lol:

Only one army list per nation is allowed in each division, as Ptolemaic, Arab and Roman lists were all selected before you you were left with your 4th selection.

funny i've been in the FDL for 6 yrs and always thought if it was a separate list in the "armies allowed" that it could be chosen without being impacted by others choices. guess i've been asleep. that really limits it, and makes it much more gamey...i could have picked an army to mess with my opponents, so they didn't get their selection and i get mine but was thinking i was out of everyone's way...well with this army i should be guaranteed an earlier selection next season :roll: i tried the kushans a couple seasons ago as an experiment...they were fun but really struggled with HF based armies. I'll try to remember to pack extra arrows and horse fodder

Yes, this is the right answer. It does mean that players who are likely to receive their army towards the end of the army allocation process do need to think hard about their 3rd and 4th selections. In that Late Antiquity division the four highest rated players got either their third or fourth choice. This was a bit out of the ordinary, to be honest, as in both the C and D divisions in Late Antiquity 18 out of 20 players got their first choice and the other 2 got their second choice.

For the Biblical Tournament, some Mods are required to participate. (The TT Mods) Would it be OK to just leave those in the Games and Multiplayer folders and play the other Tournaments or would it be necessary to remove/replace these Mods for every Turn?
You don't have to remove or replace your mods. Biblical uses the MP TT mod 1.5.3 and no other mods are used in the tournament.

See this post for an explanation of how mods work in FOG2:

viewtopic.php?f=477&t=89879

Basically, mods such as the TT Mod do not affect the base game in anyway. They are only in effect if you actually select to play the mod!
