Field of Glory: Empires - The Challenge

Post by Daniele » Mon Apr 08, 2019 6:13 pm

Fied of Glory Empires is surely a very ambitious project, aiming to bring to life the ancient world and its civilizations and to recreate the cultural intricacies of that time.

To better explain the complexity an the scope of the game, we started writing a series of dev diaries covering the most crucial points around which Field of Glory: Empires is designed.

Today we would like to expand this experience further. Welcome to the Challenge!

The Challenges

These are a series of events focused on special versions of the game. They are designed to explore step by step the game's mechanics but with a twist. These versions have certain areas and features locked, while others are allowed.

But what kind of challenge are we talking about and who can participate?

There is no better way to explain them than having a look at the first one:

Image

Challenge #1: Conquer Italy playing as Rome in as few turns as possible

Nation available: Rome

Turns: takes as few as possible

Map: Locked to the Italian Peninsula and its closest surroundings.

Mechanics and features: All active

In this race against time, there is room for only one winner.

Who can join?

Influencers and media members. The participation is mainly by invitation, but if you think you qualify to compete, write to us at challenge@slitherine.co.uk, with your name/nickname and your channel/media.

Time and validity

10 days from the announcement.

In the 10 days of validity, we will gather the videos or the screenshots proving the completion of the challenge and will assign the scores. After all the Challenges have been played, we will declare the final winner by calculating the cumulative points gained in all the episodes.

Check all the rules here

Great decision to get Das Tactic on board for this. He is a huge fan of FOG2 and explains things slowly and methodically as he gets his head around a game's mechanics.

That was a great stream, further cementing my enthusiasm. The auto-battle feature in the base game is well out in front of the competition and that's without even considering the FOG 2 tie-in.

Also, I really liked the depth of the buildings balanced with elegance. I'm sure it will take a while to fully come to grips with what is a good build strategy, but the interface is really intuitive and I love all those tooltips.

Thanks for this and I'll be eager to see the next one!

What a great stream and boy am I impressed with the game mechanics.

The combat system is a huge improvement in transparency to that in the old Ageod engine which try as I might I found very unintuitive and the options in province development and military improvements look really comprehensive.

Dastactic is evidently a big fan and on this basis I am not surprised.

Really looking forward to both more streams/you tube content and of course RELEASE !!!!

Fantastic stream and well explained (I'm really sold, now I don't care about Imperator Rome anymore). So where and when can we see the other videos in this challenge?
