Field of Glory empires help

Tue Jan 05, 2021 11:39 am

Hello, I need help with this game.

I started with Cartage. Why I can only get mercenaries from one province in Iberia?

Why I cant recuit mercenaries from africa and italy? I am forced to build units and go into negative manpower and they wont heal. I cant transport my mercenaries from Iberia to Africa and Italy because of supply limitations. I am at war with six nations, I cant buy mercenaries from Africa and Italy, my existing armies wont regen their hits and effectivness, i dont have manpower to build more troops. What do?

Why I cant buy mercenaries from africa or italy? There isnt even an option, not that I am lacking resoirces or smthing. I have enough equipment, money, I even build the Merc building even if Cartage goes not need it.

Hi escoutdril54 - sorry to be so delayed in response, perhaps you know the answer by now. Building mercenaries is not simple. You need a willing population, sufficient military resources, and as you note, a recruitment center. But many game limitations are historical. For instance, Carthage recruited mercenaries primarily in what is now Spain. In Africa, it recruited its own soldiers, in Italy it worked with allies.
So work on your supply limitations.
My thought.

I also missed this post despite me passing to the forum 10 days ago (I know, that's not enough!)

For Carthage, no need for Merc Center, but you need to control some specific regions. In Sicily or Spain for example, they should be recruitable from the get go.

I think you need to build mercenary center in a province to recruit mercenaries.
