    Re: [Teaser Preview] Divide et Impera: Alexander

    It shouldn't be. The Macedonian army was of undeniably superior quality to that of the Persians (and every other culture on the map) in this time period. The population was able to support regular...
  2. Re: Caesar in gaul and makedon wars campaign as Rome.

    I haven't played either campaign in quite some time. That said, CiG is more challenging and fun because of the lack of navies. The AI is unfortunately terrible at using a navy but is rather good when...

    Re: [Teaser Preview] Divide et Impera: Alexander

    That's an interesting idea of having timed reinforcements for even the player faction, could be a great sub-mod for those who want a more "battle focused" campaign. Something like the player needs to...

    Re: [Teaser Preview] Divide et Impera: Alexander

    Awesome! Conquering as the barbarians will be fun, and then defending the crumbling glorious civilization will also be a good alternate challenge later down the road a la FotE.

    Re: [Teaser Preview] Divide et Impera: Alexander

    This is awesome, you guys never fail to amaze! The Achaemenids are a personal favorite of mine to read about, so I'm eager to see the undoubtedly brilliant treatment they get from the DeI team.

    I think something like this would be incredibly difficult because of supply and army replenishment challenges. DeI does a phenomenal job at modeling the difficulty ancient peoples had in projecting...

    Nice ideas, its always cool to see how others build armies. I tend to try and do historical runs, so what you call the "Gaugamela / Alexandrian" build I compose like this:

  12. Re: Hannibal vs Alexander the Great - Who would win?

    Logistically supporting your army for 15 years in enemy territory is monumental. How you march around enemies, supply your men, avoid being entrapped etc. is nearly incomprehensible. That's the...
  13. Re: Hannibal vs Alexander the Great - Who would win?

    His victories were far from Pyrrhic. The three for which he is most remembered are the battles of the Trebia River, Lake Trasimene and Cannae. Each of these is a tactical brilliancy. Hannibal's...
  14. Re: Hannibal vs Alexander the Great - Who would win?

    Who would win in a single battle with those armies you mention? Alexander. Who do I consider the greater commander? Hannibal.

    They both inherited an army and they each used it with exceptional...

    Re: Horse archer armies

    Kam hit the nail on the head. Once you begin to face armies of better quality troops the horse archers can no longer destroy them outright. Use them to weaken and fatigue the enemy (enemy archers...
  30. Re: How to defeat phalax army using Roman legions?

    I'd agree with Tiny. Republican Roman armies often won a battle in spite of their commander's blunders, not because of the commander's brilliance. Even Caesar was no exception to this rule, many of...
  31. Re: Agema Short Pikes vs Chalk long Pikes vs. Hypastades - how to play each?
