regarding minor settlements (unwalled)

LequintalLequintal Registered Users Posts: 25
Just wondering why you didnt make capture point a win condition as its the case with walled settlements?

Is it so to not limit the fight to the small cramped town center or because you lacked time to implement it ? Just curious


wasnt it the case in early stages of the game years ago btw? cant remember very well

    at release there were capture points even in land battles lol, it was removed form minor settlements because people didn't want to be forced to defend the area, aspecialli if you have a cavalry based army or faction, I like how it is now anyway

    I'd prefer if the capture point contributed to a battle-wide morale buff like in Attila rather than only within its radius, but other than that it's fine the way capture points behave I think.

    Currently working on a whole lot more, stay tuned.

    The capture points were present in land battles ONLY IF an army was intercepted while traveling in forced march. The goal of those battles was to capture the train baggage.
    I liked this feature. However, in release date, the AI didn't know how to use forced march and, because of that, there were too many train baggage battles. There was a riot in the community and CA decided to remove those battles and replaced them with ambush battles.

    However, right now the IA is more prudent when using the forced march. I wouldn't mind to see an improved version of train baggage battles back.

    Imporved yes, maybe you have a chance to get ambush or baggage capture but in this case, the baggages should be there, not a capture point (I don't mean a unit but something more concrete)

    I prefer ambush Battles instead of sending cav to victorypoint.
