The Confederate side is more challenging.

I play either side - but if push comes to shove - I'd prefer the odds to be in my favor in the long run so I would choose the Union if playing an opponent I really wanted to beat.

Add my vote to the hope they do devise a method for the scroll bar list to not reset as we drag and drop a unit.

the DNO scenario has a lot more problems than just CPs -

I am for a system that favors the Soviet mass wave feel the current game has. I like the idea of more leaders at the start and easier to generate. Is there a way to have the Soviet side with an extra 1 or 2 CP per star to reflect this?

I am curious if this could be solved by treating a Leader, alone in enemy territory, with the same mechanism that exist for a leader that is wounded. The leader is 'tele-ported' to the closest Friendly Depot or City and locked in place for a couple of turns.

Thank you for the quick reply. My patient opponent and I will probably back up a couple of turns and I will declare war on the Baltics to see if that cures the situation or will I have to declare war on the Ukraine to get the Germans involved? As a solution -- and I am not very skilled at modding bu...

RUS - DNO - is this a known problem?

Playing as Reds, delaying war as long as possible while stomping Whites and Greens. I was planning on opening war on the Baltics once the snow melts in 1922. My German opponent jumped the gun and Finland and Baltics declared war on me. Now the problem. I can move into Baltic and Finish territory but...

They were recruited in cities but trained in camps set up for that. How about if the player can set up camps to train them in, instead of cities? Rather like a depot… +1 vote on this. Each state have 1 to start with and then allow the building of one or two additional recruitment/training fac...

That is a very interesting offer.

Thanks, I did not know that a leader would lose experience for loses. That makes 'experience' actually something else - a rating for effectiveness or some such, but you can easily argue that a general might learn as much or more from a hard fought loss than an easy victory. I hope they review this p...

New map looks great - I am in the camp of wanting more ops info on the map (terrain, infrastructure, supply levels, control, weather).

I like the idea of more room to maneuver but I imagine that puts more strain on the AI. I am very excited and looking forward to this game.
