Re: Recruitment is now open . . .

Since it is probably only for one game(:)), I will try the Kushans since I desperately need some practice with cavalry armies. I beat the AI quite handily but in PBEM I appear sorely lacking.

Re: AI.

The AI is competent but unimaginative and predictable, just like almost all others. If you are unfamiliar with this genre you will almost certainly lose your first few games. You can adjust the size of the AI armies in custom battles to make the game as challenging as you like. There are also built-...

Re: Late Roman - Kinda bad?

Actually there were not that many battles the Romans fought where they outnumbered the enemy. Belisarius for instance consistently won battles where he was outnumbered by ridiculous amounts, reminiscent of Alexander at Gaugamela.

Re: Field of Glory II Tournament Suggestions

I think it would be nice if the same map was used for all players in a round. This would make it possible to make a fair comparison of player abilities. Of course the initial pairing of players is very luck dependent. The pairing of an expert with a newbie can result in immensely lopsided results le...

Re: Star Wars: Alliance – A Polaris Sector mod released

May the Force be with You.
Are there instructions on installing this somewhere, detailed enough for the computer illiterate?
Star Wars now, others to look forward to in the future?

As Veruka demanded of Willie Wonka, I want Everything and I want it Now! :)

It looks like it will take me some time to assimilate Legions Triumphant so personally I can be patient (within reason)

Re: Field of Glory II - The Alexander Tournament is here

You can never totally eliminate luck in a tournament.
Luck in the draw or with byes can be reduced by having more rounds in a tournament.
It also might make some sense to have two or more opponents in a round.
In our World Series we can have 7 games to determine a champion for this reason.

Re: From Cyrus to Tigranes: winners post your results here

I would put my Sertorius Spanish up against virtually anyone else's record of failure. These guys seem incapable of standing up to elephants, pikes or archers, and are unable to have any of these themselves. Without hills/rough terrain to fight from they appear quite hapless in their helplessness. :)
