    Re: 40 unit stack option in TWA

    The problem is that more men in a unit, and eventually, more units in an army, will actually break the game.

    Even if your computer is capable of rendering 50,000 men on screen at once, the game's...

    Re: 40 unit stack option in TWA

    That's not how it was in FotS though. It was regular 20-unit stacks. You could reinforce with another 20-unit stack to have 40 units total in a battle, but you can do that in Rome II as well.

  6. Re: Fort (with upgrades) and the passes (gates) through mountains in TW ATTILA

    Empire had the best forts. They took time to build, had names, and could be upgraded to different levels. If Empire's sieges weren't so damned broken, they would have been great.
