Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Will you add faction X ?
A: We're not making any promises concerning upcoming factions, we follow our planning and eventually new factions are done.

Q: Will you add X item ?
A: If it fits our time frame then we will most likely add it as long as it is relevant, if it doesn't then we won't.
Items we won't do:
- Square Scutums
- Segmentata
- Corinthian Helmet
Stop requesting these please.

Q: Faction X is so OP/UP (overpowered/underpowered)!!!
A: That's not a question. Also we tested everything against everything in multiplayer a dozen times already and as far as I'm concerned it's relatively balanced. It seems to work decently in SP too so if all you have is one random empiric occurrence where you got your ass handed to you that won't be convincing of a faulty balance.

Q: Is the mod dead?
A: No.

Other things worth mentioning:
We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames. We do have a planning for what we are doing (most of the time) so there is no point in suggesting to us what our next move shall be. Thank you for reading the F.A.Q. and twice the thanks for reading the F.A.Q. before posting a question already answered in it.

Slowly, a bunch of stuff started but nothing final to be shown plus most of us are/were taking a small break.

After the release of 2.5, a break is something you guys deserve. Although I'll admit that this knowledge won't prevent my excitement for seeing more previews.

No rush intended (I have no real idea on how long modding M&BWB; takes since I never tried myself), but what should be expected in the next update, and if you can make a guess, when do you think you'll have it released? Forgive the run-on sentences.

No ETA, last version was planned for December, then for February and ended up released in April... Time management is hard.
Now we've got some wip stuff and plans, hopefully it won't take as much time as for last release.

Click on the unit names to check if they can be upgraded.
Text under the "20 upgrade available" is to upgrade the troop, if the text doesn't show up then the unit is at max level or can't upgrade. Wounded troops can't be upgraded. Click on the gold icon or esc to exit the menu.

Available upgrades show how much troops you can upgrade at this location and is based on how well the town/castle is doing and the owner skills, which gives balanced numbers for the player and seems to skyrocket when owned by the AI, which seems will need revision.
Keep in mind some troops can't upgrade, here's a list of those that can by faction:
- Hastatus to Loricatus Hastatus
- Princeps to Loricatus Princeps
- Romanus Eques Equo Privato to Romanus Eques Equo Publico
Koinon Hellenon (almost the same for the other Greeks):
- Hoplitès Haplos to Ekdromos
- Ekdromos to Hoplitès
- Hoplitès to Epilektos Hoplitès
- Hippakontistès to Hippeus
- Lugoae to Gaelaiche
- Botroas to Bataroas
- Neitos to Solduros
Makedonia (almost the same for Epeiros):
- Sarissaphoros to Deuteros
- Deuteros to Pezhetairos
- Argyraspidès to Agema Argyraspidès
- Hypaspist to Agema Hypaspist
- Agema Hypaspist to Basilikos Agema Hypaspist
- Mistreis Hostatu to Hostatu
- Hostatu to Supruis Hostatu
- Pedú to Pedú Ehtradeketsiúi
- Niir to Niir Valaemom
- Verehia Mins to Verehia Maimas
- Aum Anaino to Venzile
- Axunana to Huzrnana
- Luvcatru to Eprial Luvcatru

If nothing shows up maybe something is worng with your game version or possibly you are running it on a unix system?
