I am playing boardgames
Also I did begin playing again Total War: Rome 2 (total realism project mod) and Medieval 2 Total War mods:
third age , Broken Crescent (sadly CTD a lot), Europa Barbarorum 2 and looking for a good European medieval period mod.
I must say that combat in the newer TW titles is better (or the mods for newer games are just better). The total realism mod for Rome 2… I lost a battle last night. And you don’t lose your entire army when you do. I had less casualties (around 20%) but my troops were disorganised and several morale Mali made an impact.
For comparison, in Broken Crescent, in a battle between 500 guys (me) and 2500 (opponents) I managed to win with about 80 losses. Sure I used the walls and they are tough (in a good way. They are not too tough imho. Better balanced than 3rd age imho) to take but still the AI is worse and combat is not as well balanced.
