          FNV is too easy in general. That's partly the nature of it being an RPG, where your build is more important than your reflexes. The issue is any build can steamroll most combat encounters that aren't a swarm of deathclaws. The most popular gameplay mods make it it harder.

      The game can't know how famous/infamous you are when you first speak to every NPC, and his general stuck up attitude is because he's in good standing with the Gun Runners, who are a major faction and arms supplier for most of the Mojave, so fricking with them is generally ill-advised no matter how enormous your murder boner for Fiends and raiders and shit is.

              Avellone also has a penchant for ruining nice things, like his original intentions for Lonesome Road acting as a hard reset for the setting, so part of it could stem from that, too. BoS can't be successful in a setting run by Avellone or people like him because they'd fix too much and make things boring, so they have to be turned moronic for the setting to continue.

Even General Oliver, politcal asskisser that he is, is reasonably polite as long as the player isn't antagonistic.
              I'll be honest, not sure where I was going with this, my train of thought left me halfway through the writing. I just like how human the NCR's characters feel.

                the legion only really makes sense as an idea and were poorly executed due to time constraints

                to keep this weapons related, no amount of military discipline can make spearchuckers win against a trained military with repeating firearms and interchangeable parts. In game skirmishes would resemble pic related if they really happened.

                It makes even less sense that the Legion is such a cohesive, united front when the lore is that they're made up of tribes that were assimilated in one man's lifetime. It took decades of occupation for roman provinces to produce viable legions.

                the vibe of the legion works, the execution less so
                In my opinion they should have had better weapons and the NCR superior intelligence, not the other way around. Imagine if native american secret agents were infiltrating early british settlements to sabotage deployments...the idea is laughable

                It's not like Ceasar pulls random morons off the front lines for infiltration missions. He has people that are good at manipulation blending in. Literally all you have to do is send these guys to the Strip so they can learn how to naturalize, then have them sign up for the army because the Republic is starving for competent recruits. Once your guy gets into any position where he's got access to schedules he can begin leaking you info.

                Honestly, it makes a lot more sense when you don't think of the Legion as a single nation or whatever, and more as a very effective cult, since that's exactly what it is. The whole thing is built around Caesar's Charisma and not much else, and it's pretty much solely the force of his own personality which keeps the whole thing glued together. It's why the inevitability of it's collapse is mentioned so frequently in the game; once he's gone, the legion doesn't have anything to unite it.

                We also get a lot of how the legion breaks those tribes, you get it from most of the characters you meet or them doing shit like killing any men who didn't assimilate, enslaving women, and putting the kids right into the military. Considering it's been around 40 years by the time of NV most of the legionaries you've met would not have much if any memory of what tribe they might have belonged to.

                A giant chunk of the Legion, if not a majority of it, we see in the game have been Legion members for five years or less due to the Legion needing to wage a completely separate campaign in Colorado to replenish its numbers for a second go at Hoover Dam. If anything they should be having assimilation problems due to the massive influx of fresh tribals and conquered people within a short time frame. If I were expanding the Legion content I'd make it clear that the Legion is trading on its reputation from a half decade ago and the modern Legion is a simmering pot of tension barely being held in check by severe reprisals because it no longer has the critical mass to effectively leverage demographics and social pressures to enforce order.

                >spearchuckers

                Reminder that the sawed off is actually supposed to be a pretty decent gun as long as you treat it like a melee weapon, even if that is kinda silly out of context; they sell for a weirdly high amount of caps for what they are.
                >elite dudes are rocking advanced ballistic and energy weapons and old-world tech like thermic lances and super sledges
                There aren't enough guns for everyone at the lowest level but the Legion's equipment issues are usually overstated by people who don't pay attention.

                The Legion uses firearms pretty extensively, they just aren't standardized like the NCR is because they have to scavenge crap.

                Reminder that the sawed off is actually supposed to be a pretty decent gun as long as you treat it like a melee weapon, even if that is kinda silly out of context; they sell for a weirdly high amount of caps for what they are.
                >elite dudes are rocking advanced ballistic and energy weapons and old-world tech like thermic lances and super sledges
                There aren't enough guns for everyone at the lowest level but the Legion's equipment issues are usually overstated by people who don't pay attention.

                Well in every combat in the game they have at most 2 ranged attackers firing guns while the rest (3-7) run in with machetes and swords.

                Even their elite assassin death squads they start sending when you've pissed them off follow this rule. Maybe you're the one who wasn't paying attention?

                I directly called out their elite soldiers using thermic lances (probably the best melee weapon in the game btw) and supersledges in that post. Read slower.

                And the majority of their elite will use ranged and explosive weapons, it's usually one 1-2 guys in those assassin squads with dedicated melee and they're hilariously more effective than the Rangers the NCR will send at you.

                NCR in NV is in a spot where it's conceivable that they will purge the roots of oligarchy that are clearly present, and conceivable that they will succumb and become a democracy-for-sale.

What would someone do when faced with a genocide machine? Why resist when you can just pretend the player is the leader now and then con the player into doing things by pretending they've got to do that stuff as a leader?

          NVR is ass. The idea of changing a character who's entire backstory and behavior is about the hunt and the constant struggle of life, changing their close forward-facing hunter eyes to prey eyes? And have the gall to call it an improvement? This was the point I realized nobody making the face or character aesthetic overhauls had any sense at all and knew I'd never use any of those mods. Only character visual mods I ever used was skin and hair texture and gloss edits (when I learned the alpha channel of normalmaps were the specular maps for gamebryo I did the edits myself).

          Someone at Obsidian was too married to the Steel Scourge idea that was a possible outcome back in FO1. Doesn't matter that the BoS has been on good terms and slowly integrating with the NCR for a hundred years, they're all hostile and moronic now because [???].

          McNamara in Veronica's quests is also not really characterized the same way he is in his own quests.

          >not as stringently married to the Codex as Veronica would have you believe; he's been bending rules since he got in trying to get vital resources without raising a panic
          Avellone also has a penchant for ruining nice things, like his original intentions for Lonesome Road acting as a hard reset for the setting, so part of it could stem from that, too. BoS can't be successful in a setting run by Avellone or people like him because they'd fix too much and make things boring, so they have to be turned moronic for the setting to continue.

          >Doesn't matter that the BoS has been on good terms and slowly integrating with the NCR for a hundred years, they're all hostile and moronic now because [???].
          If they were so friendly with NCR in the development, why is their only interaction with them in FO2 via the Shi? Why weren't their any to interact with in NCR city, which at that point was the hub of the economy of the entire region given that NCR dollars was the form of currency?
          You don't think the BoS would've had issue with the NCR after the Enclave was defeated and tons of advanced technology was availible and out there for anyone to take? The NCR-BoS conflict is the only backstory part of FONV that actually makes sense; the idea that the NCR didn't know about a massive potential city in the Las Vegas ruins until AFTER Fallout 2 is moronic considering Las Vegas ruins are in the world map of FO1.
          Also like a lot of things in FONV, the BoS were Van Buren concepts partially implemented as they could be for the current setting, and in Van Buren the BoS were driven out of California because of a previous conflict with the NCR, and in Van Buren you could either stick it to the NCR (at the Dam) or the BoS at their bunker, both, or start a reconcilliation.

            I don't doubt that the NCR could and did something to royally piss the BoS off (Oliver is certainly just the right moron to do it), but the conflict is just not explored in any way other than 'it happened' which makes it a huge pain in the dick to extrapolate anything from it while the game also wants to beat you over the head with the BoS' moral dilemma that you have no context for. And Veronica's quest existing in its own little causality bubble, especially after you learn more about Elijah, makes shit all weird and difficult to parse.

            I'll be frank, I don't have context from Fallout 2 because I'm a FO3 babby and still playing through FO1 at the moment, but my understanding is that the BoS barely exist at all in 2 and that you're limited to interacting with their intelligence arm. IIRC the main BoS territory is just way south of the FO2 map.

              Yeah but FO2 also implies the BoS are not as prominent as they were in FO1, and the NCR has become a big political and economic faction (out of what was a hick farm town in FO1). Yes some of it was the map location in FO2 was different and not the core regions of the BoS would've been at the time, but even what little bit of the BoS you deal with in 2, they are shitting their Power Armor Diapers over the appearance of the Enclave, and are worried about their technological supremacy being undermined. The independent Shi aren't even as worried about that, and the Shi has the only place you can repair or aquire PA.

              So FO2 already makes implications BoS supremacy is on the decline, and such powers and consolidation of technology and development of populations in the regions made conflict inevitable, as no way I see the BoS changing their motivations to steward advanced technology, nor the upcoming NCR giving up access to potential wealth and power from acquiring it on their own. I think during Tandi's presidency she was able to keep some balance due to her popularity (I did like how her long-standing term influenced Caesar's idea that NCR needed a strongman type rule to be it's best), but once she died and the Big Circle or whatever the NCR congress was had free reign for their factions to exploint any resources for their own gain it was over.

                Same, although how weak he is as an NPC relatively speaking reduces that idea quite a bit.

                >outside of the Enclave
                You're thinking of Navarro. Mariposa is the old military base from FO1 and it has some regular old power armour in it in FO2.

                Well again, then it doesn't matter because the point brining up the Shi having PA availible and repairable was a comment about the different independent factions as of FO2 and the declining technological superiority of the BoS in general.

                The whole point they were trying to make is No one was, it was a massive cult of personality that would die with him. Die violently yes, but eventually die.

                The NCR acts and feels like a group that would genuinely emerge after the war, just pick shit up and go "Ok we fricked things up there lets try again without the comically evil shadow government this time guys. Same with the places like vault city etc in earlier fallouts. The legion makes sense if you remember it dies (violently) the moment ceaser is dead and everyone remembers they're still just fricking tribals with no leash now.

                House is Andrew Ryan with Robots, possible admittedly.

                I somewhat disagree that the idea of Caesar's Legion immediately dying once Caesar dies. People completely disregard that the Legion was the only thing that has culturally unified a very large geographical region since before the Great War. For large portions of it, mainly the core regions from east grand canyon, Flagstaff and out to the Malpais region of western New Mexico, have been for the better part of an entire generation. With comments and observations that the region under Legion domain has more stability and security present than even the NCR.
                I'm sure without Caesar himself there will be some fracturing depending on local figures with charisma and power, but only at the fringes of Legion domain where it's more viable to get away with it. And without Caesar's obsession with the NCR the unified idea to gather and bring down the NCR will likely go away and only become a thing if NCR keeps intruding into their territory later on (which will be feasible if the current ruled of the core Legion has to deal with and breakoffs on their faraway lands).

                https://i.imgur.com/nQwODaj.jpg

                the legion only really makes sense as an idea and were poorly executed due to time constraints

                to keep this weapons related, no amount of military discipline can make spearchuckers win against a trained military with repeating firearms and interchangeable parts. In game skirmishes would resemble pic related if they really happened.

                It makes even less sense that the Legion is such a cohesive, united front when the lore is that they're made up of tribes that were assimilated in one man's lifetime. It took decades of occupation for roman provinces to produce viable legions.

                the vibe of the legion works, the execution less so
                In my opinion they should have had better weapons and the NCR superior intelligence, not the other way around. Imagine if native american secret agents were infiltrating early british settlements to sabotage deployments...the idea is laughable

When Caesar kicks the bucket, all the legates and governors running the show outside of Nevada aren't just going to frick off and become Brahmin ranchers somewhere. Even if only 10% of serious Legion commanders decide they want to go all Khanate on Colorado, the Legion's sheer numbers will make that a serious fighting force with no real reins besides their supply lines, and even those have to be pretty good for the Legion to have made it this far with their #1 guy holed up in The Fort. After Caesar dies there's going to be a lot of fricking idiots trying to be Caesar 2, and when your choices are "die of starvation while milling around because no one remembered to cracked the skulls of the farmers in your fiefs" and "die trying to frick up the NCR and live like a king," the choice is pretty obvious. Why fight a brother war against your fellow legionaries when you could just strike off to Idaho and score some land untouched by the bombs?

                Infighting will reign because numbers that large without a strong voice to follow do not follow logic as laid out in your post. As such yes they'll bite at eachother and fracture until it's just a large collection of new tribes, seeking a connection Caesar severed them from, and a whooole bunch of individual raider gangs most of which also won't last and will further disperse.

                The Legion is a tributary state, not a central government or bureaucracy; any prolonged power vacuum could easily see localities across its territory becoming independent as Legion cohesion disappears or local Legion forces becoming nobility/warlords because it's already decentralized. And that's assuming that a decisive seizing of control by the most likely replacements doesn't trigger an internal conflict by itself. The most likely candidates to replace Caesar not only have directly opposed philosophies, but they also have their own power bases.

                Considering their range of territory they are in I wonder how many vultures also exist around. Khans could be an issue if they get their shit together in Colorado, 80's basically stand to expand their territory in Utah no matter the outcome of Zion, Graham is still out there with the Dead Horses. Could be anything going on in New Mexico or North Mexico as well. Now none of that could be an issue during NV, but who knows what becomes an issue after Caesar is dead.

                I really don't follow the logic here. Sure, a power vacuum will lead to infighting in the home territories, but there's a lot of legionaries on the frontier of the empire who have probably never seen the imperial heartland and would gladly take to pillaging from where they stand. There's plenty of space out there to form your own little slice of Rome.

                I think what you guys are missing is the fact that Legionnaires are taught to give zero shits about anything other than Caesar himself. They can't care about their fellow soldiers, because then they might get attached and start caring about casualties. They can't feel loyalty to their officers, because then that might obey all their orders blindly and miss opportunities to exploit weaknesses. They don't have any real families to defend or provide for, just some slaves they impregnate and a bunch of bastards nobody keeps track of. The only family they have is the Legion, and the Legion's only purpose is to serve Caesar. This works well enough while Caesar's still alive, but when he kicks the bucket, what exactly will they care about? The only thing they can care about is Caesar's ideals, which are often vague enough to cause a lot of conflict. Any disagreement on any aspect of legion policy can very easily escalate to civil war because of this. The new guy in charge decides to go through Utah to attack the NCR rather than across the dam? He can't do that, because it would imply that Caesar made a mistake in selecting New Vegas as his next target. He wants to change tactics to use more heavy weaponry or actual medicine instead of chewed-up flowers? Can't do that either, Caesar said that's for profligates. He wants to make just about any type of tactical or strategic decision at all? Everyone thinks that's not what Caesar would do and gets pissed at him. You end up with what is essentially the Imperial Japanese army, except without an actual nation-state to leach off of. Everybody's killing everybody else over the most minor disagreements because the system they're in doesn't have any kind of conflict-resolution mechanism other than doing whatever Caesar tells you to, and no one wants to change that because that would mess with Caesar's perfect plan for the world. It only works with another God-king, like Lanius, and there's only one of him.

                the problem with debating legion succession post lanius is that we just don't know enough about their actual structure. do they have other secondary legates who can take charge? lucius is highly respected, but is he in a position to assert himself (and is he willing to?) vulpes is one of caesars primary leaders, but is that exclusive to just the frumentarii? is the dislike of him exclusive just to lanius?

                we just do not know.

                I think the problem is less the structure itself so much as the major figures of the Legion. Lanius mostly got picked as the successor because of the sort of mythological importance Caesar gave him being the "monster of the east" and all. As far as we know, no-one else really rises to those heights, and it's hard to tell whether anyone in the Legion ever would (especially since it would require Lanius himself recognizing such status, and it's not outside the realm of possibility that he wouldn't appreciate the possible competition such an acknowledgment would bring).

                Another question is how many people in the Legion would want Lanius to lead the Legion. He's been built of up for years as this brutal warmonger, unrelentingly pursuing battle, executing anyone who displeases him, and mutilates slaves as a matter of practice. Even within the cult of the Legion there is going to be people who think he's too much and without Caesar to hold him back he's going to overextend the Legion

              Correct, you see three Brotherhood members in Fallout 2 and only one of them has a name (he dies in a cutscene basically).
              It's not so much that they have been almost wiped out as just that they keep an extremely low profile to the point that their agents refuse to talk to you if your level is too high.
              Even so, it's obvious that the NCR has eclipsed the Brotherhood we see in FO1 even if they have no power armour or plasma rifles.
              Even Vault City would probably give the FO1 Brotherhood a serious run for their money, and you probably don't even know who the frick they are because they are only a mid-tier faction within FO2.
              The Brotherhood are frankly boring even in the few appearances they make in FO2 and nothing that happens in FO2 implies much for the Brotherhood in general except that they were seriously caught off-guard by the appearance of a faction more advanced than they are.

        Legate Lanius was the designated heir, so the legion would've survived so long as we he was alive. After that thought, yeah, the entire thing just falls apart. Caesar isn't really all that good at long-term planning, which inevitability screws the entire Legion over.

        Who should be supported after Caesar dies to ensure the Legion's survival?

        If Vulpes or Lucius are picked over Lanius, he would immediately murder them and assume the position himself. If you could take him out of the equation before-hand, Vulpes would be the best choice as he has the most experience traveling in the west and can figure out the best approaches to conquering it. Likewise, given the Legion's technological disparity, his penchant for deception and espionage would give them an edge they otherwise wouldn't have.

      Ultimately with immersive sims, inevitably once you become familiar enough with the mechanics, the only way not to break the game is to deliberately avoid breaking it.
      You can install mods that make NV harder in various ways but ultimately you must use self-restraint in cases like dragging the weapons away in the Silver Rush.
