  1. Re: People playing as Octavian in the IA campaign - a request!

    Thanks! And yeah, that's true, things aren't exactly accurate (Lepidus wasn't even given Spain, to my knowledge) and a lot of the side missions are completely made up ("if Octavian had done this...
  2. People playing as Octavian in the IA campaign - a request!

    I'm thinking of starting an Octavian AAR and I'd like to make it somewhat historical, so I'm planning on playing according to the objectives and bonus objectives that are given to the player...
  3. Is it possible to find and read the in-game objectives when not playing?

    What I mean is the little mini objectives that you get (ie "hold this many provinces," "have this many troops" and the optional objectives that come with them). Is there any way to find and read them...
  4. Re: Will there be a "barbarian invasion" expansion or will it be up to mods to recreate that era?

    Good shout on the Euro Gamer thing, I'd totally forgotten about that. Also, regarding whether or not it could work on the R2 engine, something would be better than nothing.

  5. Re: only 10 playable factions in Augustus campaign?

    I don't really know what people expected regarding this campaign...it's about the Roman civil war, Octavian/Antony being the main players in it. As well as that automatically putting the emphasis on...

    BI was probably my favourite TW game, for vanilla at least. I loved the initial feeling of dread and despair that came as playing as the WRE (especially for the first few times) and how it changed to...

    Has patch 15 removed flaming torches?

    I've recently been playing and enjoying Rome 2, but as the title says, I'm wondering whether flaming torches have been removed as of patch 15.

    I played a Roman campaign on legendary up to about...

    No idea how that happened, but then that's not a pic I uploaded, those are just the ones the mod-maker(s) chose to use on their mod page.

    EDIT: this relies on the idea that loyalty in the war is something that changes, of course. If it's going to be something that can't be changed and my idea is something that can't be implemented,...
  15. Can someone explain how loyalty/traits work in this?

    Specifically how to maintain or improve loyalty and how to deal with negative traits.

    A common issue I have, for instance, is low loyalty amongst generals....sometimes even none. What can be done...

  17. Re: Anyone else losing interest in TW games as a whole? (Might explain a lot of feelings towards Rome 2)

  19. Anyone else losing interest in TW games as a whole? (Might explain a lot of feelings towards Rome 2)

  34. Re: Are navies still useless vs transports or is it just me?

    Right, so
