Hi Rob,

I'm new to this forum and am starting to use War & Conquest. Having started to build a Greek army, I am looking at the City State lists.

I have a fundamental question. I notice that the Shooting Ability does change in these latest lists from 2 to 4 and so it appears the points system on this forum is being used. So why is the Shooting Ability of Hoplites set to 3 when they can't shoot at all? Obviously, this makes a significant difference to the number of hoplites in the army at any given points value.

Please forgive such a basic question and I accept in advance that I am probably missing something obvious.

Kindest
Tim

Welcome Tim

Its a good question with a reasonably straight forward answer.

The average man/warrior has a generic base profile (for all the stats) which has a fixed points cost, this is then adjusted accordingly.

So yes we could remove the SA cost but then, to recreate a balance would probably have to tinker somewhere else.

I can't claim to have invented the system, but it broadly gives a satisfactory balance but like you I have on more than one occasion given thought to 'zeroing' the SA for non shooting troops!

Hi Rob,

Thanks very much for the reply. I understand the need to have a reasonable total score of course. a substantial SA for troops who can't shoot confused me though at the time.

Much appreciated.

Kindest regards

Tim
