A suggestion

Post by stuka pilot » Wed Jun 23, 2004 10:38 pm

I bought Conquest of the Empire when it first came out and when I found out Eagle Games was bringing it back to life, I was indeed happy.

However, I do have one suggestion that I hope will get fixed. The only real issue I had with the original was those way overpowered catapults. Most games I remember playing were a cata-purchasing-frenzy. And the player who had the most catapults usually had the best chance of winning the game.

With the way AH and Eagle games are keeping a prime record of good games, I remain confident that they know this and are going to fix it. :wink:

Hi Stuka:
FYI, there will be a completely revised combat system in the new Conquest of the Empire game. I really like the changes that Glenn (and company) and I are developing. The basic game is still very much intact. The diplomacy and economy still play a major role in the game. I’m looking forward to the release of this game. I feel confident that you’ll love it.

I have tried that one....It was pretty cool- I was just bit "turned off" by it having counters instead of cool plastic minis!

I did like the "card driven"-play for tactics/events and battle usage! It would be neat if the "New" and improved CotE (Eagle Games) would include event cards and/or other card usage! :wink:
