    Re: How to use odrysian units ?

    You could try staggering your units in a checkerboard, and after the initial contact, retreat your front line behind the rear one and then charge back in to solidify the front, that should absorb the...
  2. Re: I am new to Total War and have bought Rome 2. I have some questions about units, armies & agents, would someone be willing to answer them?

    1/2. To combine some of these questions, once I can afford a few armies, I usually have a dedicated siege army with around 4 trebuchets and infantry and a few archers to follow a field army. I...

    Isn't that a feature? Like using your agents to sit on bridges and the like, or stand in the middle of the road so other people have to go around and can't travel as far? I haven't done that in...

    Re: Carthage depicted in Grand campaign

    First off, most of the cities in this game didn't exist when the game starts, but you have to be able to conquer something :P Also it's very possible there was a city in that exact same spot, until...

    Re: Systemic Empire Management

    I tend to play very loose as well with this type of stuff. But if I had to abstract the campaign part it would be kind of like this.

    Horse archer stuff first:

    As for the horse archers, it seems that you have skirmishers which can out-range the horse archers, which is good, relatively few spear infantry, and few to no cavalry. ...

    Perhaps we are talking about different aspects of the game. On the campaign map, I agree that it doesn't resemble a sandbox, it's actually fairly boring. But the battles, that's where the sandbox...

    I actually like the face that you don't need a war fleet to transport an army. Not only is it more historically accurate, it cuts down on the micro. And Dago, for the Samartians all hopping onto...
