Leader quality bonus

Fri Nov 01, 2019 1:43 pm

Playing as Rome with the latest patch.
I have a couple of Military Acadamies which say they give a +1 to leader quality.
I also have the Great Military School which gives a +3.
Where do these bonuses show?
Are they just factored into the calculations for battles?
I take it they are not added to the leader stats as I still only have mostly 0 and 1 rated leaders.....

they affect the average values of the leaders in your pool. So you have national traits (good or bad), ruler traits (again either), your military building score (<1=bad; 4+=good) and then these buildings. The better you have this score the less likely you will be plagued by 0-0 and better chance of '2' values.

Thanks for the reply Loki :)

At present I have the following faction modifiers:

Average Military Expertise
Efficient Command Structure +2 pool bonus, +3 quality bonus
Strategy Acumen x3 +1 pool bonus, +1 quality bonus (is this actually 3x +1?)
Cursus Honorum +2 pool bonus, +2 quality bonus

I also have the following showing in the Nation traits panel.

Military Expertise 2.84
Leader force pool bonus +18

I have one solitary 2-1 General, one who is 1-2, 11 who are 1-1, one who is 1-0. one who is 0-2, and 3 who are 0-1.
I don't seem to be getting much improvement. Ok there are now no longer 0-0 leaders.
I have 3 acadamies which I would have thought is probably excessive for the period so far. Should there be more of an improvement in the stats of my generals?
I guess I haven't got enough military buildings, hence the 2.84 expertise figure.......

confess I am guessing here, but given the tooltip, I'd push your military buildings > 4. seems that <1 is bad, 1-3.9 is ok, so to get a bonus you need more. Also the more you have, the cheaper your army.

I'm doing a Rome game at the moment and have this >4 most of the time, its certainly removed the plague of 0-0s I was getting and I seem to have a decent collection of 2/1 leaders. Not yet built any academies.

I'm sure the actual rules lurk in the various text files but ... prepared to work by feel on this

I don't think this bonus to leaders is working....
New game, I have my military buildings above 4, have done for a while.
Three acadamies again, should be a plus 3 on leader quality.
My last three leaders have been, 0-1, 1-0 and 1-1...........

There looks to be no improvement on leader stats what so ever.

It does - but its random. The % is in the game files (I don't have them on this laptop so can't double check). You'll still get complete dross even with a couple of these buildings, but you also get more so statistically better chance of at least some decent commanders.

meant to add, don't forget that the ratio of military buildings has an effect too. So if you are below 1, it'll reduce the average quality, get above 4 and you get another improvement in the chance to get better leaders

This is fascinatingly complex and delightful, now that I know how to add leaders to armies.

What does that mean "ratio of military buildings". Ratio to what? The # in a region? The number of other structures?

its your military experience - you can see this under modifiers.

You want at least a score of 1.

that means you have an average of 4 level 1 military buildings for every region you own. This can be made up in different ways as a level 1 building counts as 1, level 2 as 2, level 3 as 3.

Get the ratio over 4 and nice things happen.

Patch notes for the 1.5 release.

Basically try to set up a couple of regions in your Empire where you go really deep into the military building tree, I think of it as the sort of place where the Seleucids trained and housed their specialist units (like the Phalanx) in peacetime.

Leader quality starts at 10, it means 10% to get a 2 on your leader. If you fail to get a 2, you have thrice this chance to get a 1.
Leader quality from buildings is adding up on these base 10%, so with 3 academies, you have 13% to get a 2, and 39% to get a 1.
All is cumulative...

It looks like it isn't working for Rome.
When I last played as Rome I had very few leaders get a 2 rating, despite several acadamies, military rating over 4, etc.
In my new game as Britonae I have one acadamie and my military ratio is just under 4, just over 3.5, and nearly all my new leaders are coming as 2-2 leaders.
It makes it look like it isn't working for Rome faction......

It took me a really long time and a lot of military building, but as Rome I'm finally getting leaders with a 2 rating somewhere. I actually had 3 generals with a 2 rating on one turn. 2-0, 0-2, and I think a 2-1. Since then I have been getting leaders with 2 in the rating a decent amount. I think I have 4-5 with at least a 2 rating somewhere.

Just counted my leaders as Britonae.
I have 27 of which 22 have a 2 modifier.......
It looks to me like it is working too well for Britonae and not well enough when I last played as Rome.......

Yeah, I'm playing Rome and I'm no where near getting those kinds of numbers. And my military rating is well above 4 because I purposely raised it above 4 through a dedicated program of building military buildings. I also have several military academies that are supposed to give you better generals.

Gilmer, you should advertise your series on the game. Every bit helps get the word out.

Advertise it how? I'd definitely do it, though. I'm on turn 291 and some of the thing Pocus has taught me have worked out excellently. I'm really enjoying myself at this point.

Military expertise 5.00 and no 2-2 general yet but I'm hoping! :pouet: :pouet: :dada: :dada:
