Whatever new scenarios (if any) you decide to make, I'll gladly buy them to support AJE development.

Then there's also the question of AJE2... So many interesting possibilities for that one. AJE hasn't emptied the inventory of ancient wars and campaigns yet. ;)

An excellent idea! I still feel that AJE is the best Ageod title ever. The system works so well here and the amount of micromanagement is not excessive. Besides, it's such a fascinating period of history! I'm really hoping that this is not the last we'll see about the ancient wars and campaigns from...

On my *wish* list would be to link the PW1 to PW2 including all scns in between, the only one missing would be the Punic expansion into Spain, so as to have a rise and fall of Rome/Carthage and to be played as either, ending in the domination of one over the other. The Barcid campaigns in Iberia wo...

In my humble opinion, it's a great pity that Ageod doesn't seem to have any new plans for ancient warfare. I think AJE is easily the most polished and enjoyable of their games, thanks to active post-release support which has continued until now.

Don't be concerned - the game is far from flawed! It's my favourite Ageod title so far. :)

There is a rationale that Finnish-manned units could have been fielded. Not going to argue the point, but I do like having Finns to play with. In a what-if fantasy scenario, sure. But in a game that is trying to be historically accurate with a realistic OOB, no. It's like imagining the British havi...

Naval warfare has always been the weakest part of Ageod's battle mechanics.

It's definitely something that I hope will be improved in future titles - ancient warfare included. :)

The biggest discrepancy in the Russian OOB is still the large number of completely fictional Finnish formations.

This is indeed a fantastic scenario.

I'm really hoping to see more ancient warfare from Ageod. If not in this series, then in a new one with an improved engine. There are still quite a few important conflicts of the ancient world that haven't been included in AJE. :)

I hope the AI will be able to handle the grand campaign. In EAW, it's been having some trouble. Most people play only against the computer, so it's very important to get the programmed opponent play in a decent way.

Historically speaking, Austria-Hungary was a dying empire in 1914.

However, like all armies, they did also have units and commanders that performed well. But on...

That wouldn't change anything, because such formations simply didn't exist in WW1. There was no Finnish army, just Russian units, some of which happened to be stationed in Finland during the war. :)

Yes, that sounds really good! Hannibal should be able to beat the Romans decisively in pitched battle, especially when facing the not-so-great Roman generals of the early phase of the 2nd Punic War, and then march to the south like he did in real life. :)
