I'm at this scenario too. Beeing a total AGEOD-noob, I get hit hard ;) My latest try is to send the African troops to Spain at the beginning. So you have a two star general, what helps a lot in Spain and spares the more valuable troops for the Italian theatre. :) But maybe thats all a big blunder, I...

Well, one can imagine a whole legion to surrender, but however it is calculated, there should never be more prisoners than soldiers involved. I'd call it a bug :)

New try. Thanks to all your help, the best so far :) 1,5 years at war and still standing :D Now I'd like to ask about winter-attrition: I sent Marius with his full legions in Winter on a 5-provinces-march (not clever, but I tried to surprise the enemy). In this month, Marius died, this coward! My tr...

No Social Decisions

Hi! Found another Bug (I guess). Playing Optimates in Scenario vs. Sulla. Whenever I click on the Emperor-statue to get to the social decisions, I have non. Clicking on the eagle to raise legions or other troops works fine, F3, F4 or F5-decisions work either. Only the decisions on the social map don...

Ok, than that's clear so far. But to be absolute sure: Is this the same as the combat effects (listed in appendix A)? E.g.: If I attack (orange/orange) an enemy in the mountains, the effect: "severe penalty for the attacker" only takes place, if the defender has a blue posture? Or are these two diff...

Thanks a lot for all the help! Some things seem to become more clear... I think, I might have a very considerable mistake in my understanding: Terrain. As far as I understood the manual, the ONLY way to profit from terrain is to take passive posture (no matter what second posture). So blue/red, blue...

Yesterday I sieged Napolis, where the Optimates had 2 legions. When the city surrendered, I had no pisoners iirc (not sure anymore). Shouldn't in that case prisoners been taken? What happens to regular troops in the city, when it's taken? And shouldn't be simulated, that sometimes/often enemey citie...

Really? In Napoli I set the order to red, but "the attack was canceled becauser there is no breach". Several times. In Brundisium I only had weak siege-forces without an general. I set them to red, but they simply didn't attack. The 8 month at Napoli might have costed me the war. Or at least were pa...

Mostly surrendered, but sometimes the KI achieved to breach within a turn. Is it simply luck or can I improve the chances to get a breach? Do the number of troops vs. garnison affect the chances to get a breach?

Talking about sieges: I have watched the KI to very quickly take cities. Even the large ones (Tarentum, Napolis, Capua, Rome and of course every town in Spain): Army marches in (TUrn 1), lays siege (Turn 2), takes city (Turn 3). My siege on Napoli took 8 month for a breach to happen (playing Romans=...

What is the problem with passive posture? It's the only way to get boni from the landscape, isn't it? Wouldn't it be always best to use it, if possible? And the problem is: It always goes this way. If I loose, my army gets smashed. It seldom retreats, mostly it is attacked again and again, until it'...

Gave it a new try and made many things better – but have BIG problems with larger battles. My losses are ridiculous. For example: http://img5.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/africao7aq1f4y38.jpg I have a leader, my troops are fortified, even a „mighty“ legion is here – and I get ...
