Game characteristics
« on: October 12, 2009, 08:52:41 pm »
Hi there Lord Z.
Not posted for quite a while.  You might remember me from the old Lordz days. 003

I'm very interested in this game, but at the moment I'm still playing TW-Medieval2-Kingdoms, (Empire being a great disappointment so far).  So before I commit to buying GBM I would really like to get clear in my mind just what GBM looks like.

I've read all the info I can, so far, I think, but still not fully decided what the game is really like. 
Am I right in thinking that the strategy map is hex, or more correctly "square" marked, and the gameplay turnbased? 
And do battles occur when rival armies meet on the strategy map?
And are battles real time affairs that look similar to (early?) TW games?

Thanks in advance for any info and help you can offer. 45
RBBane.

Hi RBB

Yeah, I still remember you from the old days. 040

Please try to understand the game is nothing similar to a TW game. Do not expect a clone TW game.

It is very different. The best you can do is go to the official support forums here.

http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=19

Here you will find more info and especially here in the feedback thread. I urge everybody to post or repost your questions again at Slitherine, as this way we can centralise support, info and advise tidy in one place.

Many thanks Lord Z.  I have been looking at the forum threads you suggested.

I have to say how disapointed I am to only now learn that LOWN has been postponed indefinitely.  46  I was really looking forward to that, especially after the Lordz earlier grand modding efforts to give good Napoleonic games.

We still live in hope.

Thanks again.
RRBane.

Well we hope to make many more games the coming years, so it is not from our wishlist, just not in the near future! But who knows. We still love the period.

In the mean time we hope to proof with our games there is more under the sun to enjoy.


Cheers,
