Pocus from Ageod about the new game:

"This is still an Ageod game! It is prefixed by Field of Glory, because you can optionally play the best battles in FOG2*, but this remains an option. The game definitively stands on his own and has a lot of AGEOD-esque depth. Plus it's WEGO.

When you will enact the 'Marian reform' historical decision to get better legions so to fight with some chances these annoying Germans who get this problematic woodman ability, then you'll know you are still in an Ageod game."

Pike and Shot is the same engine as FoG2 right? So that seems like an obvious next choice. Whoever thought of this is my hero of the day.
Different engines, P/S uses the old stub engine, FOG2 uses the new archon engine same as Sanctus Reach. So FOG2 and FOG:Empires use the same engine. The new Close Combat uses the archon engine also, as well as the new Steel Tiger.

And this new AGEOD game uses the same engine too. The new engine is versatile, can do WEGO. I heard it does real time too (Close Combat). AGEOD turn resolution improved according to Pocus. Now 10 seconds compared to a minute.

Perhaps they should be awarded the Grogheads Order of the Golden Dongle.

(If that's not a thing it should be)

I won't pay extra for a dongle. I just won't. Even if I lost the first one, and this is a replacement. I bought it, fair and square, and I want it replaced!

I would salivate to get the turn processing time down 90% for Ageod games like To End All Wars with the new engine.

I do hope it is expanded beyond the ancient era. Pike and Shot/Renaissance Era would be incredible.

What?  No, "Ohmergerd!  We wantzus sum Whirl'd Waur II !!!1 "  demands? 

I'm flabbergasted.

I've pretty much given up on AGEOD games myself, but if they were ever to release a WW2 game with the scope of To End All Wars, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Rightfully so.  World War 2 is a horribly neglected subject in gaming.

Tragically underrepresented in wargaming especially.

Game developers should stop wasting our time with all those Pratihara Empire Grand Strategy games and WEGO Boxer Rebellion tacticals so they can concentrate on the woefully neglected air, ground, and naval aspects of WW2's  Eastern, Western, and Pacific theaters. I mean do we really need yet another Polynesian War Dugout sim?

If this were ever released: 'WEGO Boxer Rebellion tacticals '...it would probably be my favorite game ever.

Hrmm.. well.  I did pick up Conquest Of Paradise on GMT's holiday sale for half off.   :coolsmiley:

The gaming world is so inundated with that topic.  :nerd:
