The Cataphracts are all instantly gone now? I successfully inherited my Persian dad's Horse Archer retinues as an Ashkenazi and they did not dissipate.You are Greek? That's great, I may have later few questions to you concerning Greek grammar properly when using Byzantine terminology, if you would be so kind to help me with it
And yes, I lost them all - I was forced to switch to standard cavalry retinues. As you can easily guess, it didn't help me financially or in terms of military power...
Good shape? I dunno if 80% losses during defensive war is a good condition Thank you very much!
Hope dies last, although concerning the sheer amount of destruction in Europe it may not take long before death takes it too.
