Gorvex said:Simple:Arizael said:I am no expert on lore. There is one thing that always bugged me. I assumed that the military ways of the old empire was the classic roman inspired, that is heavy disciplined shield wielding infantry fighting in precise formations. On the other hand Marius was taking inspiration from pendor military society, that is feudal knights fighting as heavy cavalry.
If what I assumed is at least roughly true, than why are the Shadow centurions heavy lancers, why immortals are elite infantry ?
- Pendor ≠ Earth
- The Baccus Empire ≠ Roman Empire
Getting some influence from Romans doesn't mean that they should be 100% identical. Also, siege crossbows and heavy armors that the Empire possesses didn't even exist at the times of the Roman Empire...
To add to this, Citizen Legionnaires were heavy infantry but Rome used allied cavalry from the days of the republic. Also, the Equites Singulares Augusti, and later the the Scholae Palatinae served as the elite cavalry guard of the emperor.
Gorvex said:Some further cheesing to help you:
- If one party can't catch the other because it's moving slower: talk repeatedly to the one being chased (the faster one), as his movement gets paused for a moment each time you do this.
- If you want to ensure the ability to join into a fight that would end by the time you get there: Reload, move a little closer, save. Reload, move a little closer, save; etc. Upon each reload, everyone freezes on the map for a short amount of time. You can use this short time to get closer, without the time advancing
- use ridiculous terrains at your advantage: lure enemies to a hilly area, and look for a really steep hill. Plant your archers or dismounted horse archers close to the top of the hill. Or look for a nice river bank with a steep cliffside.
And to add to this, it helps to have a friendly castle/town nearby if both groups are hostile to you so you can get off the map and prevent the stronger spawn from chasing you instead.
