  1. Silly Suggestion: Petition for a Historical-Realistic Script

    But the suggestion ain't so silly. Cause I'm hearin about these changes you want for the script, Quintus, and I don't think it's no laughing matter! You're trying to make the game more difficult...

    Re: Tactless and no natural talent diplomats

    Quintus any way that you could make a script similar to the force diplomacy that makes the AI attack a given city of yours with any of their nearby armies?
  3. Re: What are your tactics/strategies when fighting the Romans?

    In my experience the hammer and anvil / flanking tactic is usually the best battlefield tactic possible. Probably the most anyone can do is to try and apply it more efficiently. One common...
  4. Re: AI bringing tactically insignificant units to my areas/settlements

    It's Quintus telling you that, if he could have his dream mod, your collision of political ambitions would force you to go to war with them over the respective territory

  6. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    The Romans already had a professional army. Since the 5th Century BC, they paid soldiers on campaign a wage for their labor and paid allied troops in victuals. Warfare was not seasonal, as is...
  7. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    It's tough to answer, and I think one good way to start and try to 'answer' the question is to ask what really constituted success or effectiveness for an ancient military? In the Classical Greek...

  9. Re: More than one catapult variant possible in the future?

    I agree, maybe just give walls a large increase in hit-points. I think you can debate leaving the small wooden walls in small barbarian villages destructible. It may not be attested in the sources...

    In general we are seeing an effusion of skepticism across the United States and the West, and populism is only one dimension of it. Just as some on the political right doubt the value of traditional...

    Sticky: Re: Fans suggestion thread for future releases

    It does. Macedon built a huge city upgrade in Athens. Though I've not seen it elsewhere (also, Athens was badly depopulated later in this same campaign)

  23. Re: Advice for dealing with Sarmatians as Pontos, or generally for fighting nomad stacks as settled factions

    Yes, I can recommend a pretty wide line of infantry for battles against the Sarmatians - but your mastery of your own cavalry will be paramount, because using your infantry in that way, I think...
  24. Re: Advice for dealing with Sarmatians as Pontos, or generally for fighting nomad stacks as settled factions

    With favorable luck, all you need to defeat a Sarmatian field army is a few units of light cavalry. They're just as fast, and when cavalry units charge, they temporarily acquire a speed boost which...
