Militias are good as fire magnets. If you have some big regiments (with many elements) at hand, you can form them to a big brigade which then will pull the attraction of the enemies artillery fire.
You can also add militia regiments to regular or elite brigades to allocate some losses to them.

No Ranged Damage Done for cavalry

I only recently noticed, that cavalry elements don't do any damage in ranged battle. So fire, range and rate of fire are quite useless for cav units and even bad, since shooting attempts cost cohesion. I don't understand, why cavalry shouldn't do any damage in ranged battle when the have ranged weap...

Now, that I understand battle mechanics a little bit better, I've come to following conclusions regarding brigade composition: 1. It's better not to mix valuable heavy cavalry with infantry. Since units are likely to "shoot back" at another unit, your cavalry might get unnecessary hits in ranged com...

I have some questions about mele combat. When a unit attacks another, the unit attacked (defending unit) can strike back. But, this strike back is automatic? The defending unit must pass a TQ test? The strike back is only if the attacking unit hits? If the attacking unit doen't hit, the defending u...

Is there a way to rank the variables for importance in resolving a combat? For example: cohesion most important; entrenchment level next or whatever.

I have the feeling that the actual "Combat Explained" section in the AGE Wiki is kind of a mess (some informations are redundant, some wrong, some missing). So I overworked it.

Ah okay. Actually, I don't know, if there is a fixed maximum of elements inside of a regiment. Replacements will (as far as I know) be used primary to fill up hits in damaged elements. Only then the engine will use full replacement elements to add elements to full health regiments. I think that the ...

Can you put for each element the range of values e.g. 1-6. I presume none can be zero as that would make the whole result zero wouldn't it? Thanks for your remark.

And there is one more thing I found out: The rate of fire is works in another way than is commonly understood: A prussian infantry element with a rate of fire of 3 fires 3 times at range 3, then 1 time at range 2, 1 time at range 1. In the following hours of combat, it fires 3 times at range 1. That...

The RoE only seems to have effect on assault, not on the fire phase (at least "all out attack" didn't influence hitchances in the first round). Maybe this is only a RoP-issue, though, but I wouldn't guess so. It's not true, what I wrote. I double checked and everything works like Narwhal described:...

This would be a significant design change, reducing the stress of managing resources. There is no "rule" that says you must have all of your units at full strength and TOE all the time. I fully agree with this. I wouldn't want more replacements. But it's quite frustrating if you have thousands of m...

after you increase the mortality of leaders. What you are talking about here ? Battles, Illness ?

The only time I have seen no place to retreat causing units to be destroyed is when an amphibious assault occurs, and the attacking player loses. The "Ping-Pong" battle is interesting.

I think that RoP is a wonderful game. But it still needs some polishing. As it seems that the Phils are busy with PoN, I don't think that we can be sure to get bigger patches soon.
