    Re: Europa Barbarorum FAQ

    Unfortunately the RTW engine doesn't allow the shieldwall formation unless you switch to BI.

    You can sort of replicate the hoplite phalanx if you activate guard mode for your hoplites and leave...

    Oops! Should be fixed now. Thanks for pointing it out. :doh:
  4. Re: The Crazy EB Phalanx: An analysis of phalangist stats

    If you're interested, I recorded a short video to demonstrate how to deal with phalanxes without losing an entire unit. Note that if you place more armoured men in front of the phalanx and/or act...

  6. Re: The Crazy EB Phalanx: An analysis of phalangist stats

    Remember that the current EB team is different from the original one, which has migrated to EB 2 and the M2:TW engine instead since the times of EB 1.2. At some point the new team probably decided it...
  7. Re: The Crazy EB Phalanx: An analysis of phalangist stats

    Wait a minute, 34 attack? I don't think there is a unit in EB with more than 20 armour, how did you obtain that number?

    TBH I have no idea why phalanxes should be ap, it's nonsense. This will be...
  8. Re: The Crazy EB Phalanx: An analysis of phalangist stats

    Several points need to be specified here.

    1) EB 1.2 already had light_spear as a phalanx attribute.
    2) Phalanxes are OP anyway in sp, with or without light_spear.
    3) In the newer versions of EB...
  9. Re: The Crazy EB Phalanx: An analysis of phalangist stats

    Yes, lances have all the same lethality. What changes is the charge value, which is also weapon dependent.

    Ah well, the mp edu and the "online" mp edu are two different entities. Back when EB...
  10. Re: The Crazy EB Phalanx: An analysis of phalangist stats

    1) and 2): agreed.

    3) of course the biggest limit is the historicity of a unit, so we cannot artificially boost stats too much. The other option is to increase the number of men in a unit, while...
  11. Re: A Statistical Gameplay Analysis of Missile Units in Europa Barbarorum

    I see. That makes much more sense now. Thanks for clearing it up: in the framework of your strategy the long range is probably the most important asset, even if I still think that including Cretans...
  12. Re: The Crazy EB Phalanx: An analysis of phalangist stats

    [/FONT][/COLOR][/LEFT]Yes, the SP EDU is heavily imbalanced in that regard. Shortswords are next to useless, with 0.1 lethality; kopeis are severely underpowered with their 0.11 lethality; axes and...

    Hey Madoguy, and welcome! :)

    Nice analysis: that's a really good way to introduce yourself at the EB forum. I did a similar research as well by means of some modding: you can see my results in my...
  14. Re: A Statistical Gameplay Analysis of Missile Units in Europa Barbarorum

    This surely is an interesting topic that can bring up some valuable discussion. I don't see any "statistics" applied here really, but the premises are sufficiently clear to do some considerations.

  15. Re: Triggers with low probabilities - is there a bias?

    Well, I think it's OK if somebody gets it in the first 2-5 turns. The probability of getting the trait exactly in turn 2 is the highest among all the turns that the character plays, after all.
    A big...
  16. Re: Triggers with low probabilities - is there a bias?

    Hmmm, I see no contradiction between the statements "I have a trigger of 2%" and "the players report that every character gets it". After all, 2% with WhenToTest set to CharacterTurnEnd means that I...

    Re: 'Embezzler' Trait

    Selflessness and Loyalty already play a role in the triggers, as well as the presence of other traits (Stoic, Austere, Upright). Chances aren't that high (10% for the first trigger) but they increase...
