    Guys!! Finally I made it to the marian reforms !!
    Thelast hundred turns or so were a drag honestly, autoresolvingeverything, territorial expansion stalled, offices falling more orless into abeyance. Yet it was worth it and Rome brims once more withvigor!

    Thenew units somehow seem even better than what the stats suggest.Extremely durable, take very few casualties even when engaging infull melee for extended periods. This allows for long campaigns withthe same core of legions just replacing the allied lightinfantry/cavalry when necessary.
    Iread some people saying that the refresh rate of the prima cohortswas too low to even bother with roleplaying. Actually I think thatits a perfect rate for such purposes if you just include them inimportant armies, really makes you care about them as an individualentity almost. The colonies and veteran system is also very sweetspicing up the lategame.


    Somehowbeing done with the triplex acies has lighted a creative fire in theway I play the battles, doing much more whatever I want in them(approach the campaign map more freely too now). I love that you canstretch a really long line with the new unit size. I love the newsense of increased homogeneity. Nothing better than the view ofbadass heavy armored legionaries and the artillery behind, blastingaway at the enemy...

    Hmm, for some reason the spacing got messed up, apparently. Isn't there an edit button? Can't see it anywhere.

    There's a minimum post requirement before you can edit - I think it's 25 posts.

    If you're fielding historically accurate armies, you should still be using armies where half your force is non-Roman. If you have Provinciae governments, you'll find they now offer a good mix of local units to supplement the legions (before the reform, they didn't offer any recruitment at all).

    Of course, who would I have doing the dirty skirmishing work otherwise? ; )
    Coloring your army with cool regionals/mercenaries has always been one of the most fun parts.

    Is there any way to influence the number, type and experience of units that spawn after a city revolts/switches ownership via bribe or diplomacy?

    I recommend a pugio rather than a spear, because in close quarters combat, a dagger will serve you better than a spear.

    It's supposed to be based on what is defined in the descr_rebel_factions.txt, under peasant_revolt. However, the game seems to take liberties with what is there, and you can't specify experience levels.

    I've seen weird things when a city switches ownership via revolt/bribe/diplomacy. I've seen all gold chevroned armies spawn, I've seen garrisons of 6-10 units composed of a single unit type. It doesn't feel natural. It would be nice if it could be put in control.

    It can't. It's hardcoded stuff we can only influence, not control.

    Lusitania revolted from my fresh conquest, bringing back to life their long-dead faction. The army outside the settlement was great, general-led, wide mix of many units. Inside the settlement? 10-12 "client ruler" cavalry units. Lol. I'm still not sure how I'll approach this one.

    I've played three campaigns since the release of 2.2b and one of them was my very fulfilling 1000-turn Roman campaign for v. 2.35. I've played enough to know that this isn't normal. I'm over 100 turns into my new Epeiros campaign, but the "New Guys" faction has already died out or killed itself inexplicably, way back in turn 19. So what's going on here? Will this lead to stability issues? This never happened in my Roman campaign, that I can guarantee. I hope they don't respawn somewhere and try to become a legitimate faction. LOL. That would be bad.

    They won't respawn. They don't have any mechanics to let them do that.

    How the boii FM can become mercenary. I don't get it. Following the guide,i understand that those mentioned cities need to be controled by certain faction. So, i send a lone FM for example next to Kabula controled by Macedon, but nothing happen.
