Re: quality of units concern

I think it is crucial to show these differences in the game, but there is an alternative to changing all the values. IN wars of Napoleon, there was an excellent modifier system which made the forces of each major nation unique, with a number of simple modifiers that recreated the tactical differenc...

Re: quality of units concern

There were very dignificant differences between the tactics used by some of the major nations. For example, the Swedes relied mainly on melee combat, and their fierce charges helped win many victories. The Russians relied mainly on firepower. French combat formations were denser and more vulnerable ...

Re: Polih-Lithuanian Army size!! OMG it is huge`

Funny reading all this about "nerf" the Swedes, "They are too strong" etc etc. What do you expect? Sweden had one of the most/if not the most well drilled army in Europe at this time period. The system Charles XI created during his reign was a system that many other countries co...

Re: Polih-Lithuanian Army size!! OMG it is huge`

Good ideas in this thread but I wouldn't give a trait which would give attrition to Karl. Instead I would give him the old corrupt trait but with a new flavor text. Good point indeed. Now we have to see if this particular trait can be made area-restricted...if not we would make it general and Karl ...

Re: First Impressions

This just could be the most beautiful AGEOD game ever, and that is saying something. Two major wars, done with care and great attention to detail. I have not found a single bug. The two wars are utterly different to play, just as they should be. And speaking of great generals, Marlborough, Karl XII,...

I agree with Marek regarding the size of the Polish army in the game. And I have some ideas. In preparation of this game, I bought and read a number of sources, including Robert Frosts hugely expensive but very informative work, The Northern Wars, two biographies of Karl XII, written from the Swedis...

You are not in the majority. The colorful maps in the other games are unfortunate and the one for ECW is quite tasteful. The antique map style always looks better than modern glitz, and the flashy modern look really isn't appropriate in the older periods. What you are talking about is a mod, not an...

Yes, Please do tell us something about the new games. It is almost the end of September, and we have heard nothing about the game with the new system except that it will not have firearms.

Siegfroh, if ;you think the PON concepts are great, I do not see why you are opposing the idea of giving them a fresh try with a new system that Pocus has said is much easier to work with, more modern, and much faster. A system that could make it much more likely that the potential of these concepts...

The patch won't solve all the issues of PON/the aged AGE engine, sorry gents.

Enjoying the Crimean War, finally! Thanks, new patch.

I installed the latest patch and continued to play an ongoing game as England. The first thing I noticed was that France declared war on Russia, which was already embroiled in a war with Turkey. This meant that I would not be fighting Russia with just Turkey as an ally if I joined in. I did not get ...
