Re: Rebel alignment

Just following on from the last point, there's a line in the situation reports that notes that "our citizens are pleased" or something to that effect. I'm thinking that this is a marker for a critical location loyalty bonus.

Re: Rebel alignment

Rebels function much as do enemy forces with regard to loyalty. 51% or higher loyalty the player should not have any adverse consequence. Once loyalty drops below 50% the region is not as productive, moment and supply are impacted if the loyalty drops too far. Aha! Makes sense - good to know Durko....

Re: Rebel alignment

To piggy-back off this, I have 2 questions: 1) aside from forcing a surrender/armistice, does rebel alignment have any other effects? Like, hampering revenue, troop quality, etc.? And 2) is it true that computer controlled UK will never surrender due to high rebel alignment? Again, I can't say for ...

Re: Africa as CP

I've generally been able to hang onto the African colonies by providing them with a transport fleet to shuttle units to where they're most required. Typically I bring von Lettow and a brigade or two round to SudWest from where he can reinforce the other West African colonies in a single day with ver...

Wow! Important pick up pants. Since it seems sensible that the first side to weaponise gas would also be the first side to prepare against it I'd simply assumed that it was a case of first in best dressed.

Re: Storming the Ramparts

It'd be interesting to know what the algorithm for combat power is - especially whether it's simply cumulative or includes a modifier for elements involved. But whatever it is I'm figuring 144 has to be better than 68. Equally, it would definitely be useful to know what benefits the heavier hitters ...

Re: Storming the Ramparts

It's not called Siege Artillery - Super Heavy Artillery instead - but fortress-busting was its historical purpose. For Germany one battery delivers 68 combat strength for 400 gold and 1000 materials with a build period of 120 days. Contrast that with German Medium Artillery which puts out 24 combat ...

Re: Storming the Ramparts

Unfortunately the same trait doesn't stack, ie. one only gets the siege benefit once from pioneers and engineers. That's certainly how the passage in question reads, but I'm wondering if the "and" might not be additive rather than inclusive. Otherwise, since the presence of one pre-empts ...

Hi Bargus, and welcome to the boards. I don't keep the big fleet in port - I send it to the Baltic to clean out the Russians there. They like to raid into your Baltic shipping box and you can take a decent bite or two out of them by stationing your fleet to intercept them. Further, by mounting amphi...

Re: Can Bulgaria and Romania form Armies?

That's what it means alright, evan, and given the number of units fielded by the minors, corps are an unlikely option. As to ignorance - join the club. Straight Arrow's made a masterful job of dispelling most of it so I'd recommend browsing his threads as you begin to get serious about things.

Re: Drawing the Face Cards

Consistent with what Durk and Nik have said, I have no real insight into the selection procedure; but I do suspect that there's a timeline issue involved somewhere. For example, Hutier shows up in the German availability list very early in the game but over many playings I've never seen him actually...

Re: Sailing in a wash tub

Remarkable when you consider that they had the same draft as the early light cruisers and a considerably greater beam - but fair enough when you consider what game management would look like without such simplifications. Useful info - thanks Arrow and thanks Durk.

Re: Victory in the East

Central Powers can conquer Russia by… Destroying Russia's northern start-up armies. The job doesn't stop there of course, but as long as they are intact and active you'll spend most of your time in the East reacting to them rather than pushing on to St Petersburg. It helps if you can also clean out...

In my experience, "no" to the first and therefore "no" to the second also. Beyond that, I'm far from convinced that River Gunboats/Monitors can block river crossings either.

Yep - as sure as I can be given the available information. I think the confusion arises because the 1.04 is a beta version. My understanding is that it was put in the works before the 1.03 was officially adopted and has lingered there since, but as it offers improvements over the 1.03 it is "ef...

Re: which is current version?

The 1.04 Beta (see the Help Improve EAW thread) is the most "current" in that it irons out some of the earlier bugs and plays more smoothly, but if you can't access that I think 1.03.01 is as good as you're going to get for some time to come.

You bet. Individually their impact is small but since they're cheap and quick to make you can festoon your infantry with the little buggars to take advantage of every spare stacking point available.

Just on Nikel's third point, I don't think he's suggesting that you try to blockade Great Britain - rather that the absence of the blockade will give you the "income' needed to see you through to victory. Though I've never come anywhere near achieving your naval position, the rulebook seems ver...

Re: Idiots to the Fore

I'm not sure whether this is your issue, Arrow, but as I recall generals drop ability scores when appointed to new commands - I think it's meant to replicate the confusion created by command changes. They should revert to their original levels on the turn following appointment.
