    Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.

    I found this comment by Judy Melinek, a forensic pathologist, interesting. (She wasn't involved in the death investigation, she's simply providing commentary as someone with professional knowledge...

  8. Re: What specific Rome 2 Total War campaings did you complete?

    That's right, all in the Grand Campaign. Apart from the tutorial campaign, I haven't completed any of the other campaigns yet.

    In the Grand Campaign, I enjoy building an empire over a long time...
  9. Re: What's the best both formation and strategy for a naval battle?

    You're welcome, I agree that it's important to avoid letting melee ships get in each other's way. When enemy ships are sinking, they are obstacles, which is another reason to have space in between...
  10. Re: The best moment/situation when to convert an enemy faction into a satrapy/client state

    Yes, that's frustrating. Even so, I think it's reasonable that subjugating a faction involves taking a risk.

    Some players won't want to take the risk, I don't blame them. For me, whether it's...

    Re: [AWARD]Bran Mac Born for Opifex

    What counts as "exceptional" modding work? I've used Bran's AI mods for Empire Total War and I've often recommended them. I'm impressed with the differences he has achieved in AI behaviour on both...
  12. Re: Returning to Rome2 & have battle UI questions?

    1. I don't know about hiding foliage with CTRL-F. When I click on Options > Graphics > Advanced Options > tick 'Hide Foliage', this works.

    You're welcome. I don't think I've seen a unit recruitment order mod, so I can't tell you where it is, unfortunately. I hope you'll find it.

    Re: Arverni Rise and found the Kingdom

    This is an interesting start for your Arverni campaign. I was surprised that you sent your army west towards the Vivisci and Volace, rather than east towards the Aedui, as the Arverni start at war...
  17. Re: The best moment/situation when to convert an enemy faction into a satrapy/client state

    Yes, I sometimes do that.

    I agree, that your client state getting into a war with another faction you have treaties with can be a problem. (I believe this is less of a problem with satrapies...

  22. [Released] Re: More reasonable diplomacy mini-mod (using taw's research into the territorial expansion problem, v10, May 16, 2015)

    Grenadier, I'm sorry for not commenting before. This mod simply adjusts the penalty to diplomacy between the player's faction and other factions, when the player acquires regions. I don't know...

    It does seem strange that they're offering a game...

    Thanks, Daruwind. We talked before about the Wood Elves rework, I'm looking forward to that.

  25. Re: “Toutatis Favours The Brave” (A Nervii CiG AAR) [Updated 27th July 2020]

    If I remember correctly, the Nervii had a reputation similar to that of the Spartans, so I can see how the comforts of the longhouse would seem uncomfortable (and 'uncomfortably comfortable' was a...
  26. Re: What's the best both formation and strategy for a naval battle?

    I tend to have strategies (based on cost-effectiveness, experience and technology) rather than clever tactics for sea battles. When I play as Carthage, I buy their cheap melee ships and ram the...
  27. Re: Did you ever defend a city succesfully from an enemy army that outnumbered you just with the garrison troops?

    I agree, arrow towers can be really useful when you're defending. Do you find defensive artillery on the walls to be useful? Because of their limited arc of fire, I can usually only hit the enemy...
  28. Re: Northern Dúnedain- Divide and Conquer Version 4.5

  29. Re: A OtherRealm Productions - Men of the Mountains AAR (DCILA)

    It's clever of the Mountain King to avoid siding openly with the forces of Sauron or Elendil and to act in ways that can be interpreted as supporting either side. I wonder if he'll be able to...
  30. Re: Derc Plays Through World History (Current: Napoleon - Napoleon's Campaigns)

    Great updates! I like the phrasing, for example about the fate of the subjugators of Poland and your Napoleonic style, such as when you talk about science in time of war.
