Do you get combined arms without any cavalry? Would be quite silly if yes.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
0 < 1/2. It is silly, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.I didn't specifically test the casualty ratio, but I believe presence of some cavalry in your army gives you a combined arms bonus. Latin tech group armies get it as long as they have cavalry:infantry ratio less than 1:2.
Be encouraged. I had today off from classes, so I ran 100 mock battles between 2 countries of equal moral and discipline. The generals used were 1/1/1 for 20 battles, 2/2/2 for 20 battles, 3/3/3, 4/4/4, and 5/5/5. There was no terrain modifier, and each set was done with cavalry attacking 10 times and defending 10 times. I threw out the top 3 and bottom 3 performances in each set (looking at the data sets roughly 20% of the battles were outliers and then the extra 10% was used to decrease Standard Deviation in my data set). Land tech used was 30, infantry used were Gustavian and cavalry used were gallop. 56 infantry and 8 cavalry won a total of 68 battles and lost 2 (in terms of casualties). The average ratio of casualties sustained for mixed army to infantry army was 10:13. and the average dice roll difference was 0.17 in favor of the cavalry army.Data with a roll difference doesn't mean anything. Might still test it later, but those numbers don't sound encouraging.
Hey man if I'm going to go through the trouble of conducting this experiment, I'm damn sure gonna do it right. I started to work on a way to do weighted dice rolls so I could make earlier values in a combat more valuable, but then I remembered that I don't want to die single.You noted the numbers each day for the roll difference !?
I might've forgotten to mention it. I threw down a few colonies once my range got passively long enough since I needed places to put more Land buildings, but I doubt I'll expand further in North America.Thanks for another interesting update!
Quick question: I see some France-ish blue provinces in North America. Are those your colonies, Pewt ? I don't remember you ever mentioning venturing into the new world, although my memory might be failing me there.
1. Yes.1. Is Spain still human controlled?
2. I was pretty amazed to see Italy push Spain out of Iberia. Was the extra land more of a drag re tech rates etc. than a benefit?
3. With regards to the HRE in multiplayer, are people just eating as many OPM's as quickly as possible then just ignoring the infamy limit as they get slowly and painfully digested?
4. The countries that have split lands, ie: GBR, NED and ITA, have all struggled against the unified, unitary land powers. Is that always the case, or would it be possible to dominate in mp with NED for example?
