How to play as Sarmatian?

I found that Sarmatian is a different kind of cavalry army. While I can have the whole army of lancers, I'm not sure whether they can hold the line well like most infantry and they are not evasive like those horse archers. Is it necessary to use other troops outside lancers? How to deploy them effec...

Re: Zama - Historical Simulation - Good Joke part 2

Doing non-historical things while expecting historical results sounds like a good joke to me. Joke aside, OP sounds more like nitpicking at exploitable AI and going over the limitation of the ruleset just to make a sneer remark which is not a nice thing to do IMO. "Slingers vs Javelinmen" is doing a...

Re: Strongest Army Lists?

Rome is very strong for sure but its high costs make fielding the army pretty challenging since it is easier to get outflanked and outnumbered as your men whittled down. I think that most combined arms armies are among the strongest because you can adjust force composition for many situations. The a...

Re: Ideas for how to learn the game?

I started playing as Campanian. I feel that its army is pretty solid and straightforward. It has all basic foundations you can work with.

Re: Tactics - Javelins

After playing with them for a while, I feel like they are sort of unsung heroes. Their feats seem to be not very well-recognized by ancient sources with a few exceptional ones. I guess because they are not difficult to be utilized by everyone and they are mostly fighting enemy counterparts long enou...

Re: Optimal ways to use light troops

Thanks for the tips! It seems like light troops are more delicate than they appear.

Optimal ways to use light troops

Assuming that the majority of your army is not light troops. - How many light troops do you need? Is taking maximum number of them a good idea? - How feasible can light troops inflict enough casualty (< 16%) to non-light troops to get a bonus modifier on cohesion test? - According to the manual "the...

Crash to desktop from Custom Battle

It happened in Custom Battle when I play as Dacian and I pressed "Accept" in Force Selection when I still have affordable units.

Operation Bagration 1944 - Behind Enemy Lines's briefing

The briefing states that "Destroy at least 18 trucks..." but the real objective is to destroy 22 trucks. I think that part of briefing might be wrong. :?

Problems about Coop and Game saving

I just bought the game with my friend to play Coop Skirmish. I still don't understand how it works exactly, how the units are shared, point allocations, etc. There was a few "Failed to save the game for sending." problems occur and my friend has to restart a game. I'm looking forward to the next ver...
