Oh but does the Shadow Legion know what Papua New Guineans do to adulterers... :)Lets just say people there only ever get caught commiting adultery once.

Just to point something out while I'm avoiding developing my background.

Testudo is designed to form a wall of shields infront, above, to the sides and at the rear as protection against missile fire it was never designed or intended for use against a cavalry charge. The romans use Spear Drills as defense against cavalry charges instead and to great effect. In English Testudo basically means Turtle so just think of it as the turtles shell as in it's hard on all sides.

To explain, they formed a shield wall, threw 1 volley of Pilum at charging cavalry to disrupt the formation then front rank knelt with Pilum held forward at an angle, second stood behind holding it over the front ranks heads and the following ranks either threw another volley or braced the second rank.

Rome 2 is extremely bad at portraying historic things accurately.

Rome 1 did a better portrayal of the testudo's effectiveness against cavalry.

Hint: It didn't go well for the infantry. Worked great against horse archers though. Couldn't kill them with missiles and they exploded like tissue paper in front of a hurricane even when they melee attacked the legionaires testudo or no.

I think it's safe to say Rome 2 was messed up in general. Every goddamn unit throws pila now.

It's still not great.

Mine doesn't I removed it from the vast majority of men and added the fire at will option back to my roman infantry. It's a bit better now especially running the Radious Mod as well.

I think the fact that you're being forced to use a mod to make the game make sense and playable says a lot about it personally :/

True but to be fair I use mods in all TW games. Even the good ones are bettr with the right mods.

Mostly Darth or Radious.

Well I'm more of a Bryt player myself, I take great pride in my 175 man army of Dena Pirates who are currently in the process of bankrupting all of Ireland with the insane upkeep.

On the other hand, I take greater pride in watching 40 of them hack an army of 110 to shreds without losing a man. So it pays off Razz.

I was going to point out the thing about testudo, but i think it was more of a slight against Rome II, rather then actual lack of knowledge

Well, now i feel sad, i knew it was too good to be true that the formation was legitimately good against cavalry.

I believe the Gauntlet and Dragons are now on there way to/at Tobrah, so do we need a new thread?

Not yet. I'll be adding it to the information thread soon, but this event is going to work a little differently so that we don't take as much time as the last one.

This actually raises an interesting question, if I did accept the offer to join the Radiant Cross would I get added to that orders section of the forum as well as my own?

I think I just worked out my main objective for this event.
