    Content Emeritus is a usergroup for former senior Content Staff, so they can advise current staff. It gives them access to Content Staff forums (including the one for Content Directors).

  2. Poll: Re: Reason, Revenge or Roleplay? How do you decide when to occupy, sack or raze?

    King Athelstan's strategy sounds very logical.

    This sounds like a great way to enjoy a Sparta campaign, kesa82! I see what you mean about fighting in good weather in the east, and getting bogged...

    Congratulations to the winners and thanks to Alex and Turk! The quality of the submissions was impressive and the winning pictures are amazing.
  4. Re: Derc Plays Through World History (Current: Medieval II Kingdoms - Teutonic)

    I was impressed that you negotiated a city from the Mongols - I should have guessed what they'd do afterwards! Generally, I like it when AI factions act like a human player, but I imagine this was...

    Thanks everyone for your comments and thanks to DVinci for the suggestion of Fourth Age Total War. (To be fair, credit for this review belongs to Drtad, I simply published it). :)

  7. Re: What is the best battle formation for land battle if you are going to take an offensive stance?

    Yes, it depends on the types of units, for me. If I have cavalry superiority, my ranged units go in front, otherwise they'll be behind a line of melee units.

    If the enemy waits on a hill, I'd...
  8. Re: Discussion of Total War: Rome II generally as a game

    I'd say that Rome II re-creates the historical situation to an extent. The campaign would differ from history in ways that might annoy you. In the main campaign, AI Rome sometimes expands and...
  9. Re: Discussion of Total War: Rome II generally as a game

    Yes, I associate arcade games with those things too - and also with games that are completely unforgiving. Arcade games often require you to exactly the right thing at exactly the right moment or you...
  10. Re: How do you determine what technologies to research first?

    You're welcome! Morticia's advice is good.

    I've heard people complaining that newer Total War games are arcadey, too. As I see it, to be arcadey, a game should have a significant similarity with...
  11. Re: How do you determine what technologies to research first?

    Yes, Rome II tech trees include techs to recruit agents.

    I agree that it doesn't seem historical that you'd need to research recruiting a champion. Everything in a strategy game doesn't have to...
  12. Re: “Toutatis Favours The Brave” (A Nervii CiG AAR) [Updated 14th February 2021]

    Delicious story-telling, I enjoyed the encounter with the young messenger, particularly his dialogue. The details are done well, such as the effortless stealth of Tanco and the retraining hand on the...
  13. Re: Written in Sand (Nabataean AAR for EBII)[updated: Feb 19]

    This is an exciting moment. It looks like I had a lucky guess about Zaadi's plan! :) Zaadi is tricky, but so is Mubsamat. Zaadi seems to be making the assumption that his opponent's army are around...
  14. Re: [IB SAI:AAR] The Last Pagan Emperor (UPDATED 21/02/2021)

    Welcome back! The arrival of the Persian army is well done and your writing makes the battle exciting - the attack by the Persian cavalry on the Syrian missle troops looks like a dangerous moment. I...
  15. Re: Derc Plays Through World History (Current: Medieval II Kingdoms - Teutonic)

    Those victories do look heroic, considering the odds. How did you manage to defeat 286 men with just 21?

    The dialogue between Dieter and Wolfgang is hilarious!

    Looking at the Balance of Power...

    There seem to be two views on this. One view is that a civil war happens when two (or more) parties break away at once. The other view is that a civil war happens when a sufficiently large part of...

    Re: Empire 2

    Yes, I'd be very happy to see an Empire 2.

    The 1700 to 1800 time period is a good one. Line infantry are useful but their muskets are slow to reload and inaccurate, so cavalry is still a major...
