Would be interesting to see a population based recruitment system that can replicate the 3/4 to 1 helot to homoioi issue that plagued them.Childe_Rolande said:Hahahah, I guess they were tired of being non-citizens and often, slaves. Or, they were trying to win freedom by meritocracy, which happened a few times when their dwindling population (due to probably stringent laws about immigration and citizenship) needed men desperately and offered freedom to those who would partake in upcoming battles only to have those Messenians and helots kick major ass, embarrassing the Spartans.

That was the case for awhile, since I recall the Etruscans didn't have the Etrusci pila in their multiplayer item pool since their inclusion in the 2.5 update yet they were in the hands of other factions.tigab95 said:... Samnites use the etruscan one for some reason
Well considering they're psiloi from Lakonike they might've considered retreating to a better position as cowardice and decided to fight to the death.Childe_Rolande said:I'm certain this isn't the fault of anyone on the RaW team; I imagine this scripting was probably created by someone else, but has anyone noticed that 'Skirmish' is a bit of a hit and miss at times? I tried it a few times and at first it worked flawlessly, but at times they seem to try to avoid the enemy by smashing right into them, in hilarious fashion. https://vid.me/uEHVo

tenerife_boy said:Well, how a big difference do you consider the fact that the corinthian helmet covers you the whole head (face included) and the apulo no?
"Out of combat, a Greek hoplite would wear the [Corinthian] helmet tipped upward for comfort. This practice gave rise to a series of variant forms in Italy, where the slits were almost closed, since the helmet was no longer pulled over the face but worn cap-like."
