I like the ‘decadence’ mechanic and the nation specific buildings!

For me, Field of Glory II integration is the only reason to get this game. All these civ management features are nice, but I hope they don't lose sight of the FoG II ball.

Well...actually, multiplayer PBEM would be nice as well, particularly if it supports asynch (PBEM).
"Baseball's Sad Lexicon" - 1910

These are the saddest of possible words:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
      Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
      Making a Giant hit into a double—
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”

"Tinker to Evers to Chance"
"where doubles go to die"

These three players helped the Cubs win four National League championships and two World Series from 1906 to 1910.

What is the FoG ball? I love the games but it’s difficult for me to put my finger on exactly why.

Do you have to leave FOG empires, and then go int Fog Ii separately? then start up empires and import the battle?

From what I’ve read the new game has optional battle resolution in FoG2, which is somehow integrated. I don’t remember reading that users had to switch between the two games.

It's what they built the Coliseum for.

Field of Glory: Empires?  This is sounding good but now I might need to save up for FoGII as well.  I did read something somewhere that if you wanted to you could switch out from Empires and go into FoGII to fight your battle.  Not sure though.  I'll have to check.

Now I wonder if you can fill up your generals musou gauge quickly like you can in Dynasty Warriors: EmpiresTM?  I'm in the mood for some mindless hack and slash in a Roman setting. 
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.
