  1. Re: Epirote Dynastic Administration outside of Epirus and Greece?

    Pyrrheia is the name you're looking for. Edit the text files to make the renaming script use the name you want.

    Re: The best unit(s)

    Speaking of cavalry, I really like the scythian horse archers. Somehow, their horses share the characteristics of steppe ponies (very hardy) while also being very fast - i think this is a bug or...
  3. Re: How does the EBII community rate Pyrrhos Aikidas?

    Pyrrhus achieved a lot before EB2 starts, he transformed the backwater Epirus into a fledling hellenistic kingdom and created his own powerbase in Ambrakia, which didn't exist before. He collaborated...

    Re: Begginer's question

    An allied government wouldn't allow foreign military settlers, so the whole strategy of building something then switching government once it's done is ahistorical and a game exploit. I think the dev...
  9. Re: Hellenistic Cataphracts - More Expensive, Weaker?

    The description of the hellenistic cataphract is a copy paste from the EB1 version, it isn't updated for EB2 at all, so it isn't representative of the unit. The reason for the cost is just the...

    The unit experience system was changed from M2TW to Kingdoms. In M2TW each 3 pips (copper, silver, gold) gave +1 attack and defense, while in Kingdoms it only gives attack and no defense. Restoring...

    I think Pontos gets too many hellenistic units, due to stacking their government and poleis recruitment. One example is hippomachoi, which doubles the unit pool (0.4 polis + 0.4 government), while...

    The changes to the ptolemaioi sound great, the additional wealth was really needed, and the reduction in hellenistic manpower should help reflect their historical issues.

  21. Re: Neutral AI bringing tactically insignificant units to my areas/settlements

    The AI is affected by the fog of war, so if they don't have available spies, factions sometimes use small stacks to explore the map and get an upgrade of the situation of your armies and settlements.
  22. Re: What are your tactics/strategies when fighting the Romans?

  24. Re: Agema Phalangitai for Epeiros is the best looking unit in the game, and you're not allowed to disagree in this thread. That's right. I said NO.

    It is the pontic agema who represents the epitome of fashion.
