Thread: Please bring back the women!

  1. #1

    Default Please bring back the women!

    You know what my biggest gripe with EB is?

    No women!

    A world without women is no fun......

    I used to enjoy admiring my built-up cities on the battlemap, but now there's only men walking around them, and not a woman to be seen anywhere... :(

    This makes me very, very sad! :( :( :(

    Please, bring back the women!

    Afaik the women have been reskinned and redone into a unit you can use on the battlefield.
    So doubt you will ever see them again in EB.
    I might be wrong, but that's what I recall. :)

    Yes, the women were taking up a precious model slot. And were therefore forced indoors.

    You will have to make do with the dancers, courtesans, hetaria (no idea what the plural would be) civilised slaves and evil mothers in law that you see as ancillaries.

    If we put the women back we have to cut the Spartans.

    Just out of curiosety.
    Why are the men still around?
    Would it not be better to remodel them into something useful to?
    Excuse my ignorance on the matter, just have to ask. :)

    in the last version they had soldiers with shields wandering around. I think the current men are artillery men, who look like peasants anyway.

    If you don't have any model, as I think was the case earlier than that (or was it RTR? It's been a while) then the game just crashes when you try to look at the town.

    Nah, just kidding. I think it relates to the physical model used for the women which is literally unused anywhere else in the game. I believe the model used for the man is used in multiple units which is why you still see the men walking around.

    Now that is funny. I see the "grievances and complaints" portion of the forums here and at TWC are in rare form today.

    That would depend on the context of the poll.

    Spartans vs. Heavenly Creatures? If your defending a wall against heathen Makedonians?

    Or

    Spartans vs. Heavenly Creatures? If it's a night of boozing and lap dances at the EB Tavern?

    A camel clad in LS set on fire and pulling a New Kingdom Egyptian war chariot, mind. Whose crew throws severed heads that set enemies on fire.

    OK, this is a serious question now...

    If the women that used to walk around took a unit slot and have now been replaced with something real and useful, does that mean that any unit could be made to walk around the city instead?

    If so, could this be a dynamic thing, so that you actually saw the units garrisoned in that settlement marching about?

    Or we can have elephants, chariots and Gaesatae walking around?! If so I would glady sacrifice the Spartans just to see women and Gaesatae walking next to each other.

    I don't come here a lot any more. You know why? Because you suck. That's right, I'm talking to you. Your annoying attitude, bad grammar, illogical arguments, false beliefs and pathetic attempts at humour have driven me and many other nice people from this forum. You should feel ashamed. Report here at once to recieve your punishment. Scumbag.
