    Default Strange Siege

    I went to fight the battle for Kyrene, and this is where the game set me up!? (Notice I'm the one with the Ram)


    Captain: Errrm, General?
    General: Yes?
    C: I hate to point this out...but the city's over there...
    G: Ah, but isn't the view breathtaking from here...
    C:
    G: The Twitter of birds in the trees, the chirp of crickets, the sun on your back..
    C: But the battle sir !
    G: Ah...the feel of the grass on your feet, the breeze through your hair..
    C: .......Sir, many good men will die today, fighting in your honour!
    G: Ah yes, but just look at the view!
    C: Your parents were brother and sister weren't they Sir.......
    G: Indeed.....and?
    C:..........................nothing sir

    Not as hilarious as the guy who's rams ended up in a clearingi n the woods(rams cannot move through woods).
    Fighting isn't about winning, it's about depriving your enemy of all options except to lose.

    The commentary, though, is quite funny.

    I say, perhaps we should compile all of these wacky pictures into one thread. Loads of laughs, I'll bet.

    Reminds me of the old 'caption' this screenshot thread. :)

    Yes they can. And you are not suppose to start out at the edge of the map in a siege assault abttle either. But once, I had reinforcements with rams come to my aid in a siege of a Gallic city. They first moved through dense forest and then through woods.

    All you have to do is tell them to move by right-clicking a location outside of the forest, and they will move. One cannot move them inside the forest, but ordering them to get out of it works well enough.

    I also once had a "funny" siege battle. I was attacking Alexandria with a rather small stack and the enemy sallied....anyways, I got deployed INSIDE the city, on a street with phalanxes blocking every possible exit. I thought I was in trouble until the AI decided to start moving all of its units to absolutely random places. No idea what got into them...

    Clearly the AI believes your army is fat and needs exercise.
    All men will one day die, but not every man will truely live.

    I might have to edit the subtitles file (assuming I can find it) to say this; then again I'm the only one who plays RTW/EB on this machine...
