  1. Re: The War Council is hereby convened - Invasion: Britannia

    Hey Dooz. Sorry to hear that you're literally insane. :tongue: I had a feeling that was the case, not just with the OCD stuff, but also the strange summaries you would give where it seemed like you...

    LOL. The EBII team should have just trolled everyone from the start by making the game entirely in Classical Latin, Koine Greek, or Aramaic. :tongue:

    "A casemate is a fortified gun emplacement or armored structure from which guns are fired. Famous Barcid casemates well attested by the archaeology and now represented in EB II."

    No problem! Glad to be of service. And yes, while I know how most non-Latin Italic troops disappear from the Roman roster (especially by the Marian reforms), I'm well aware that Hellenistic factions...
  6. Sticky: Re: Announcement: Europa Barbarorum II 2.35 released!

    Both! In Southern Italy I built "Supervised Hellenic" governments that somehow have Camillan Hastati, while in Rome I built a "native administration", and the rest of central Italy plus northern...

    I kind of found a workaround for this. I basically wait to put my soldiers onto the walls right around the gatehouse until the enemy has already pushed the ram right up against the gate and has begun...

    Re: Sacred Band Armor

    I think Lusitanio's argument is quite sound given that continued use of the "Sacred Band" can at the very least represent the continued use of wealthier and elite Carthaginian citizen soldiers in...
