  1. Re: Was the sarissa/pike really so ineffective in inflicting casualties on the foe?

    That may be true, but this kind of precision is needed for a hoplite if he wants to injure or kill his opponent. Even unarmored warriors could protect themselves adequately with their shields,...
  2. Re: Was the sarissa/pike really so ineffective in inflicting casualties on the foe?

    No. The reason people believe sarissas were under the right conditions capable of inflicting heavy casualties is that they were indeed terrifying weapons to face on the battlefield. You cannot...
  3. Re: Was the sarissa/pike really so ineffective in inflicting casualties on the foe?

    The armour penetration attribute is utilised a bit oddly by the team, i would say. Weapons like the kopis or axes shouldnt really get ap, it is simply not realistic. A slash or a chop has virtually...
  4. Re: Was the sarissa/pike really so ineffective in inflicting casualties on the foe?

    We simply have no way of knowing to what extent so called barbarians utilised leather as armor, if they used it at all. The point of wearing armor is that it protects against the most common threats...

    Re: 2.35A R2 Roman Marian savegame (146 BC)

    To your first point, IIRC, it was customary after the Marian reforms to call a unit made up of two centuriae, so a third of a cohort a maniple.

    Re: Unit stats and performance

    So it tells us how much space a soldier model needs for fighting. Is it intentional that the loose formation for Principes and Hastati are actually tighter than the default formation?

    Re: Unit stats and performance

    Also, there is a number at the end of the stat_pri line in the EDU. I dont know what that number stands for, but it is 0.2 for hoplites and 0.3 for swordsmen, so i suspect that it has something to do...

    Re: Unit stats and performance

    It actually makes sense, and it also makes the best hoplite units probably the most effective infantry force in the game, the Carthagian sacred band unit is just as powerful (or even more so) as the...

    Re: Unit stats and performance

    Unit stats and performance

    Hi all,
    Im posting this thread because i noticed that at least in some cases, unit performance doesn’t reflect their statistics when pitted against other units. For example, i noticed that celtic...
  14. Re: What exactly is the intended role of the Thorakitai?

    Chainmail is an excellent form of defense, a lot better than many believe it to be. Contrary to public belief, it offers great protection even against thrusting weapons, some types were even able to...
  15. Sticky: Re: Announcement: Europa Barbarorum II 2.35A R2 released!

    I welcome this change. This makes the cavalry and the infanty charges also feel more impactful. Given that you guys havent changed anything else regarding battles, this is going to make battles play...
