    Re: Some more features/reveals

    Agreed on all points.

    In my opinion it seems that they modelled the Saxon shields on the post-Romano-Briton era (which I call Brytenwalda era, based on an excellent mod) in the 7th century...
  2. Re: Answer to will Rome 2 get the same features as Attila?

    Ingenius. So the "New Content Team" essentially means more stupid DLC spam.

    Re: Some more features/reveals

    I am worried about the 7th century axes, 9th century Viking shields and Jute helmets from the the 8th century. Saxons look more like fancy Viking raiders than what they actually might've been.

    Just my two cents, but every post like "pics or it didn't happen" or "pics or no success" actually discourage the people from posting at all. It gets ridiculous.

  9. Re: What units have been spotted and what units you hope to see.

    There might've been Limitanei as well, considering there was a shot when one could see a unit that held a shield and a spear, and didn't wear much armour. Or it could be just me.
