I definitely won’t use it for all battles either unless it is so novel and great a that I can’t resist...which is a possibility 😎

I thought those like me frothing with anticipation may like this :



From the Manual.......(I got a sneak peek !)

There are tons of nation specific events/rules which totally differentiate playing different countries......

As an example :


7.7. Specific Rules for the Diadochi
The Hellenistic successor states (the Diadochi) have particular problems in retaining their regions when they are losing a war. If they become old or decadent, there is a risk that their entire Empire will collapse. Equally border regions may change loyalty to a more dynamic and successful neighbour.
The Seleucids use the Satrapy system which gives a bonus in terms of a free unit for each province and more garrisons in each region.  The disadvantage, however, is in terms of reduced income due to the cost of the Satrap.
Macedonia’s government age will not increase in any turn in which it grows by at least one region. However, if the number of regions does not expand, then Government Age increase will double for that turn. The Antigonids will see their Government Age increase at double the normal rate in any turn in which they have no wars.  If they are currently fighting between three and five wars, then they will not age and if they have six wars at any time they will lose 1 government age for each such turn.
116
 
 
The Ptolemies will see their Government Age double in any turn in which their fleet is less than half the combat power of their army.  If their navy is larger (in terms of combat power) than their army, they will gain a bonus +5 legacy points per turn (in this case the fleet must be of at least 80 combat power).
All the Diadochi (including the Lysimachids) are vulnerable to crumble when played by the AI depending on their decadence and if they have lost their original national capital.



Rome is the only faction whose Heavy infantry (Legions) can build roads and fortifications in addition to any regional building you may have underway.

Loyalty of populations varies hugely with Egypt for example generating only 2 loyalty per population whilst some states can generate up 6 or 7 or more base loyalty.

These are all in addition to the nation specific traits that you get at the beginning of each game and attached to the rulers that change as each is replaced.

I can only stress the above are just a couple of examples from lots applying to different nations.

Awesome. A lot of thought has clearly been put in these game details and workings.

Been doing a little FOG2 since the latest DLC release. 

All it needs is a proper dynamic campaign. 

If FOG: Empires doesn't explode or disappear into Nevergame Land, and gets released, I'll squeeze out a man-jewel nugget of gesticulating joy.  <:-)  Because it'll be superb.
