Discens (2/14)



  1. Yeah the other day played with gauls Ope that cav, and cheap, while tryed to get elite horsemen, they die more and do less In that time there were not horse chairs till late centuries, caballery was more supportive thing and briton didnt have much horses to spawn like that, in fact gauls, celts (britions), germans were more skirmish think, they werent trained to stand and have long fights
  2. agree on lag thing, not onto tower thing, some players just rush into the cc not really a great gameplay If u just mass out units to attack cc´s. Though some civs got ships just to be balanced but in the real life they didnt just fisher boats or transport ships
  3. Iknow, es un una "frase" mexicana coloquialmente hablando
  4. I ll drop this by maybe will illuminate about roman history also suggest to see other ones funny and insteresting
  5. Sword cav>everything. chariots are not that overpowered, though why not putting some iron cost like selucid ones a liltle bit cheaper 20 mineral. Just played with athens and felt a litle bit in disvantage, when ptolemies are too easy, maybe for ptolemies low wood cost and fast building with low hp could work instead of free houses, athens need a cheap basic ranged unit, also athenians where more known by their strong city defenses and ship strenght. My athenian hoplites were beated by sword cav when they were 2 for every 1 sword cav, also sword cav both for gaul and british werent that strong nor that used, iberian civ had better use of horses, also Macedon in times of Alexander was one of the best cav In the other way gauls were more known by their infrantry, and british were known more for being skirmishers not great front to front combatients, while that cav gives them too much more power.
  6. Just as suggestion, change wall cost, allow to be placed in neutral and own territory like port and that stuffs, and instead for athenias pasive to have just stronger walls as carthage.
  7. Ok thanks , like that happens in this and other scenarios, also to mention in somes Iberians dont get the pasive.
  8. yeah also as i suggest early a passive for celtic civs, to have warrior womens
  9. "Girls as well as boys could be trained to fight with swords and other weapons. One of the most prominent training schools in Gaelic mythology was run by Scathach (pronounced “sca-hah” or “skya”), a woman warrior from what is now Scotland. She trained the greatest hero of Irish legend, Cúchulainn" "The practice of bearing arms was relatively common among women. Women were recorded as having taken part in the final battle against Caius Suetonius Paulinus when he advanced upon the druid stronghold on the island of Mona (now Anglesey) in present-day Wales. In this case, they seem to have made great use of psychological tactics such as screeching, dancing wildly, and pulling at their faces, frightening the Romans enough to hold them off for a time."
  10. Yeah I know just as I said wanna give u ideas so when u can and if u liked them to use them thats why I get few links to have bases
  11. I like Persia faction though, I have few suggestions to improve gameplay. 1.- Persia and many Empires of the time won battles by numbers more than having a real strategy, so my suggestion is: that basic foot troops, to have maybe less attack and health but be cheaper in order to mass them. The immortales able to be trained in the barracs, cheaper and less effective. link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_history_of_Iran#Achaemenid_Era My base for this are the many wars with greece, 1 hoplite is worth 2 or 3 persian infantry men due the training and the equipment they had. Also It is known that immortals received its name not for beeing "immortals" but if someone was killed he or they were replaced by others. "Herodotus describes the 'Immortals' as being heavy infantry, led by Hydarnes, that were kept constantly at a strength of exactly 10,000 men. He claimed that the unit's name stemmed from the custom that every killed, seriously wounded, or sick member was immediately replaced with a new one, maintaining the numbers and cohesion of the unit" link:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immortals_(Persian_Empire) 2.-Where is Mardonius? xD I like the actual heroes except Xerxes, but they were all kings while Mardonius was a General a brilliant one. 3.- Scythed Chariots, first were 3 men as far as I know, 2 men where charriots from egypt and where smaller, so my suggestion is that chariots can shot bolts while moving, with a penalty of acuracity, horse archers too, second to be faster than infantry but slower than horsemen, though already, third to be able to cut people in half with the blades (in a way to speak). 2The scythed chariot was pulled by a team of four horses and manned by a crew of up to three men, one driver and two warriors. Theoretically the scythed chariot would plow through infantry lines, cutting combatants in half or at least opening gaps in the line which could be exploited." link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scythed_chariot All this maybe difficult and complicated but I and many others really like this game, and really want to aid to improve it.
  12. yeah heavy loses still though, but the actual elephants from the game are too expansive and not really a good choice, they die soon agains pretty anything, also would like to ask why 250 iron cost for them, would suggest 400 food istead. actually much of the units arent rentable when u harvest tons of food and lumber while iron and stone are harder, would suggest some units cost of iron and stone to be dropped, like slingers yeah its more realistic but common 50 stone one single slinger he is not going to throw the mine. as for chariots yes, actually persia wasnt as before, after alexander conquest, but many cultures used charriots, britons, romans, greeks, egypcians, babylonians, sythes (dont remember the real name, the most known enemies of egypt), persia. when I though the suggestion of the chariot wasnt to mele, They go on the way shotting bolts and killing people with blades, what its true its the lack of mobility that a single horse has, that make alexander succes against persians armies. the chariots couldnt go against the phalanx nor use the blades.
  13. haha really dont know that far though will investigate,
  14. And well what greater proof that Boadica itself. Also saw some History channel documents about her speaking about culture of celt
