    Nice!

    Can only echo those before me. Civil wars seem awesome! (in a strictly game kinda way, off course )

    Meh. Every major power in the HOI era had some for of "regiment" or "division" and called it as such: only Romans had cohorts. It certainly doesnt ruin the game by any means, but any chance barbarians could be called hordes or something?

    Warband would be IMO a more appropriate name. But a option to allow culture specific end army names would be cool

    Stop nitpicking. If it really bothers you that much edit out yourself.

    Would have sold the game to me too, if I wasn't already convinced by earlier features. Civil wars are great!

    This looks awesome!

    Civil wars seems really interesting and great to have something to do after conquering all neighbours .

Besides, a 1000 men is too much for any unit called a cohort.

    Yes, I now these are all generalisations to make the development of the game easier. But sincerely, I think it sucks (sorry about that). Please make an effort to provide a better army/unit names system, if not by nation then at least by culture. Or at least make it modable (which I think it wasn't in EUIII).

    And what is GJC doing with principes and velites in his 3rd Army in a scenario that begins in 49 BC? A beta bug I presume.

    Except for this and a few other things, I really look a forward to the release.
    Thank you for making this game. I just wish it could be done a tiny bit better.
    My thoughts exactly. Selucid or Gaulish Cohorts make my eyes bleed. Velites, Princeps after Marius make little historical sense. Unless of course there is an event the player chose to say no about this issue.
    I know this might sound nit picking but there is something unholy in Caesar´s army being made of Avernian princeps or Trevian equites. Gaul has just fallen to rome and troops raised there would certainly not follow such naming. Culture and assimilation should have a say here. During this time Caesar only raised one "Gaulish" legion at the V Alaudae, but that was done in Transalpine Gaul which had been under roman control for over 150 years.

    Question, how long would it take a stationary cohort to loose this veteran status?

    All that said I have preordered the game already

    Once you know that the Spanish Church is being continually worn down by such a succession of disasters and by so many deaths of the Sons of God as a result of the oppression of the heathens, we believe not one of you will lie low. We urge you...to do your outmost to defend your brothers and liberate the churches. With Apostolic authority and the power divinely bestowed on us we graciously grant to all those fighting firmly on this expedition the same remission of Sins that we conceded to the defenders of the Eastern Church

    Is it just me or is this two units in the same province, but with two different coordinates?



    Is one of them retreating? Is one of them an icon of Barbarians? No matter what the second unit is, it looks great.
