    Can't wait till someone puts up some Parthian footage.

    All of these battles only last a few minutes. I thought they were supposed to slow things down ?

    I know for sure it's slower than Rome 1 where units got killed in a few seconds.

    Though in order to have slow combat you have to have a different set of battle mechanics not just everything is slowed down so your slow reflexes can adjust but something like NTW 3 mod.

    NTW 3 requires you to play differently , it's slow but it is actually challenging too. The battles are less tactical but focusing more on larger scale movements and such. Reserves play a roll, etc etc. (RS2 mod IMO is a bad example of slow combat as its just a grind fest)

    Thus NTW 3 allows for you to play slowly and enjoy th combat but requires a different train of thought to play.

    And most of them are engineered that way. Small number of units and no Generals. But watch the Rome vs Epirus. It's 8 minutes and has a general around. And you can see a pike unit in action. Which keeps formation until charged from the flank.
    If you havin' skyrim problems I feel bad for you son.. I dodged 99 arrows but my knee took one.

    Thanks for the link.

    Not real impressed, the graphics are great, but the animations are lacking, especially the heads down running that I noted in the Rome vs Macedon video CA released. Unit charges need a lot of work too, a lot of units, even well trained ones like Cohorts charged in a very broken formation.

    Furthermore the path finding and AI seems inept as ever. Lastly the Roman Cohorts seem like they are the same steam rollers they were in RTW.

    I had mixed reactions to the Arverni v Iceni battle.

    Pros:
    • Graphics really good
    • Javelin trails much reduced from early builds (3:54)
    • Unit markers turned off - made immersion much better


    Cons:
    • Fights over fairly quickly
    • Boats & soldiers sometimes skimming over the sea/land (2:00)


    Mind you, an engagement like that without formal battle lines should perhaps not last too long. Units were flanking quite a lot and it was mayhem. Will wait for a more traditional battle before final judgement.

    You can disable projectile trails from the menu just to let you know.

    Source: DiplexHeatedhd. It works too, you got to squint to see if anything is being thrown at all.
