    Nice review! I agree that EBII is really...

    Re: battle ai is a mess

    The AI can be quite decent with infantry (except maybe phalanxes), but it is very bad with cavalry. Against infantry-based armies, it almost always uses it for unsupported frontal charges against...

    Sticky: Re: Announcement: Europa Barbarorum II 2.35 released!

    For projectiles, penetration depends on three things: speed and sectional density (mass divided by surface of...

    Sticky: Re: Fans suggestion thread for future releases
