    shields might slow bullets down a little

    but there's a reason no one in the big professional armies uses them at all

    Yeah that's what I figured, I guess I'm better off investing in a fast horse than a fancy shield if my goal is not getting shot

    Eastern is GMT-4 right now, right?

    about what time should I log in to teamspeak as a complete stranger to those boards in order to figure out whose orders I'm supposed to be following?

    I'd love to be able to tell you, but I know jack crap about all that. I downloaded the mod two nights ago :p

    PDT is -7 right now, so yeah, I think EDT is -4.

    I've never been in the monday ones, but going by experiences from friday line battles, there'll be a "pubbie regiment" for the unaffiliated to join and drill with. Get there slightly more than half an hour early and make sure you're on their teamspeak.

    well you could try to actually beat the game, which requires something like conquering everything, wiping out most of the wandering super armies, and being best buds with the noldor (there's victory conditions in reports). Just found the kingdom of pendor and start kicking some ass

    I've gone back to my Nord dude in Vanilla and I'm trying to get the Nord claimant in power

    holy shit, Nords holding a castle never fucking die

    I threw 200 dudes against a castle with 50 Nords in there and walked away with 35 alive

    just arrow them into oblivion. I trained up vaegir just to put the heat on the nords

    I've got something like 250 in Archery and Nord Archers aren't slouches, but some of the castle designs are just hell for attackers

    I can pop off head shots on any archers they have but I can't get near the actual breach

  • The Black HunterThe Black Hunter Registered User regular
    edited May 2011
    that's why you have 40 vaegir marksmen, you pepper the shit fuck out of the nords for a few rounds, then return to you castle and replace your archers with buff footmen and try not to cry.


    Remember to put your doctor at the bottom of the list, so that he isn't the first to die

    They nerfed bow accuracy in PoP so you can't be a siege sniper anymore. Gotta go for body shots from a distance, heads peeking out above the walls are too small. Took me a while to get used to but i kind of like it

    This does not apply to noble troop archers. Those dude have machine guns

    IIRC, the Noldor bows have the super accuracy, if you can find one. The arrows are something like +8 damage, too.

    One rather cheap trick I've found with PoP is to hire the elven hero npc (Lethaldiran?) and take his stuff. Hello elven armor, boots, sword/shield, bow, and arrows.

    talk to the guy labeled "traveler"

    he will be able to tell you the location of any relevant non-noble NPC heroes.

    I shot it into the abyss and started playing PoP again

    now i have to defend the one fortress of my newly formed Kingdom of Pendor from King Ulric's 1200 man Sarleon army. LET'S DO THIS

    so what are your guys favorite army formations?

    I've been running something like 50% Ravenstern Rangers and 50% Mounted Rangers/Horsemen

    usually the first wave or two are decimated by my Rangers and then I charge everyone and clean up the rest, but we do poorly against the D'Shar with their 60-70% cavalry/cavalry archer armies (they're just so fast that they hit my lines and tie my archers up before they can get off enough volleys to really do damage)

    but I just got a castle and I've stocked it with my Rangers so I sort of have the opportunity to rebuild my main army from scratch

    also how does one get Noble troops?

  • KwoaruKwoaru Registered User regular
    edited May 2011
    all ravenstern rangers or those silver archers (I'm pretty sure I'm not making them up) and just line them up on a hill and wait until the enemy cavalry is in spitting distance then tell them to open fire

    bodies everywhere

    I don't play PoP, just vanilla. But I use 100% mounted units, usually. I have crossbowmen and archers and shit of other nationalities as castle garrisons, but my main force is all mounted guys, mostly Khergit, some sarranid, and my party members.

    I play Sarranid in my Vanilla campaign. So many mamlukes and master archers you don't even know.

    sarranids for the mamluks, khergit for the archers

    I play warband with as close to a 100% mamluk army as is feasible (since i am usually carrying around some infantry to train as castle guards). I am no master strategist but I can usually take on armys up to three times my size like that.

  • MVikingMViking Registered User
    edited May 2011
    hmm since I now own several feifs in the steppes I should get me some Khergite

  • hailthefishhailthefish Registered User regular
    edited May 2011
    Yeah, I've owned several armies that were 2-3 times my army's size, as long as you can fight in open fields you can win fairly easily with an all-cav force. I love mamlukes (because the heavy armor makes them a little more durable) but they're on the spendy side for wages, so I keep them in my castles until I decide to go pick a fight. My main fief is Sarranid and gives me like 15 recruits at a whack, so I have quite a few.

    Right now my PoP army is like 75 Knights of the Falcon, 30 Hero Adventurers, and like 100 other units training up to those. I've almost finished taking over the entirety of Sarleon, so now I've got loads of noble recruits flowing in and i've been able to phase out basic troops. More unique spawn armies need to show up so I can get some qualis gems to finish enchanting my rune sword and found the Silvermist Rangers (also wanna try the Knights of the Ebony Gaunlet)

    I see a lot of you using troops from multiple factions but don't you get a huge morale penalty for doing that? I have a hard enough time keeping my morale up when I am not fighting constantly it seems like forien troops would be a pain.

  • Beef AvengerBeef Avenger Registered User regular
    edited May 2011
    I think you only get morale penalties for numbers of troops, not variety. Though you do get a penalty for a nation's troops if you're at war with that nation.

    But yeah for morale you have to make sure to get enough fights in consistently. Having high leadership and a bunch of different types of food helps (especially baggage trains). Also you can buy drinks at the bar if you need a morale boost quick
