  1. Re: How can I productively use "ambusher" style units?

    It's simple. Cover the siege tower in a massive, white cloth. The archers on the wall will assume it's a cloud.

    That's... Not even correct at all. Not only are there more than two social classes in a medieval society, but it becomes even more segregated when you take into account the differences between the...

    Re: Understanding Pikes in DeI

    Also, I haven't gotten far in my Roman campaign just yet, but it seems you can recruit a few units of pikes as the Romans. Whiteshields, even, in Southern Italy at a level 3 building.

    Re: When does the game end?

    Yes, but your finger will likely fall off from clicking "End Turn" so many times.

    Re: When does the game end?

    That depends on what you mean. There is a limit for completing your objectives, wherein if you don't complete your objectives before that turn is reached, you 'lose.'

    But it's not an ending. You...
  6. Re: Historical background and other things regarding Carthage units

    I don't think "What-If" units are implausible or silly, though. If Carthage were to expand like in the fashion of a military culture like Rome, I doubt they would do it with entirely mercenary...

    Re: Confederation and Unique units

    That would be really cool though. Perhaps just expanding the AOR units, maybe? I noticed that you can't, for instance, recruit Syracuse Hoplites as Sparta if you confederate with Syracuse, but you...
  8. Re: Can Navy Units Not Disembark On to Land?

    You can't disembark on the campaign map and use your naval units as a land army, no. You can use them as reinforcements for land battles if they are close enough to a friendly land army, however, and...

    Hmm, I haven't noticed any issues with that, but the increased unit size definitely breaks naval invasions. Can't fit anything over 200 men on a ship, I think, or else things break when they...

    Oh, you like numbers? I play with 41 unit stacks. I can't recall exact numbers for this one, but I was playing as the Bosporan Kingdom. I had an army of about 8,000, fighting an Armenian force of...

    If you added actual time changing, and the ability for major heroes to die, you would have the exact opposite thread coming up.

  13. Re: Beastman DLC is a complete ravesty. Worst release of content by CA in 20 years, including Rome 2.

    Yes, why would you do those two things? Those both sound like incredibly boring ways to play the game in a single player game. -

    Some of these would be great. Naval battles, loyalty, upgrades, destruction, disease.

    But others wouldn't really work. Seasons and family trees both would require there to be actual passage of...

    From what I understand, DEI is not balanced for anything over normal difficulty, at least for battles, so I would recommend playing those on normal.

  16. Re: I wish this game had real ragdoll physics.

    Company of Heroes is a great example of an RTS that makes good use of Ragdolls. It's squad based, so there will never be hundreds and hundreds of units on screen at one time. (Well, until I mod them...
  17. Re: I wish this game had real ragdoll physics.

    I loved the part where a line two men deep somehow stopped a giant by poking him with what was basically toothpicks.

    Yes, it's kind of expensive and I'll be waiting for a sale for sure, but it's not oppressively overpriced. It's a new faction, with new voice acting, new animations, new battle maps, a complete new...

  23. Re: Britain allows boys to wear skirts as part of new gender-neutral school uniform

    How is allowing boys to wear skirts any different than allowing them to do any other "feminine" things, like reading romance novels, or painting...

    It's a baffling viewpoint.

  28. Re: SUBMOD: Estalia, Tilea, Border princes units!

    I didn't really play any with it, but Cataph's units are, so far as I know, balanced towards vanilla, so they'll all be unbalanced with Radious.

    I did play a custom battle with BP's shield...
  29. Sticky: Re: [WARHAMMER] Radious Total Units Mod (Released - 08.07.2016)

    Yes, I agree. But I don't think Radious' new troops are elites, are they? I mean, elite for Bretonnia, but can they stand toe-to-toe with, say, Nurgle Choosen, or Knights of Morr?

  32. Re: SUBMOD: Estalia, Tilea, Border princes units!

    This is a great start, but I definitely think the units need to be rebalanced for Radious beyond just unit costs.

    For instance, Border Princes' Knight unit has less health than an average unit of...
