Re: Need some basic tips for Grand Campaign

Thanks much. Very helpful about command structure.

I really enjoyed Birth of America. This is a good game too - just much larger scale...

Need some basic tips for Grand Campaign

Playing Grand Campaign as France. i selected the option to attack through Luxembourg. Germany is focusing on Russia. Belgium is not in the war. I've been able to make some progress on my front but Germany has stiffened up resistance. It's early 1915. So far my strategy is to build a lot of infantry ...

Newb tips Grand Campaign Western Entente

Any early game tips? (Or mid or late for that matter...)

I've played some of the scenarios and own several other AGEOD games. The only grand campaign I've finished is Birth of America 2. So I feel I know the UI okay but still probably miss important things.

I suggest you that in the first turns, get a great number of divisions/brigades/corps around Kalach-on-Don and then siege Tsarytsin, becouse that way you can get a very important alliance with Ukraine, and then, further on ""help""(although you are invading :p ) Ukraine taking almost all Eastern Uk...

Help with Second Silesian War?

This seems like a good scenario to learn the game and Ageod engine. I've restarted a few times as I really want to do well. I move my forces south, taking the northern most objectives easily. I build supply depots in most of them, but can't in Prag (?). I leave a brigade in each objective city (too ...

I found him, but not through the ledger, which no longer shows commanders (that I'm aware of). I looked at the battle, retreat, and siege messages and see that he is recovering from injuries in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, after a battle in Fairfax, Virginia. The forces I was directing him to attack we...

What happened to Hooker?

On my second or third turn of Coming Fury, I was pleased to see Hooker show up in the Army of the Potomac - he has decent stats. I created a small force and sent him to tangle with forces in the Shenandoah Valley. The next turn, poof, he was gone. I didn't see any reports of battle. Is there a funct...

Coming Fury - tips on what to do first few turns?

Got my feet wet playing multiple games of Shiloh and Sibley. Feeling better about taking the plunge. I want to try Coming Fury as the Union. Tips on starting out? Doesn't seem any good generals are available. Do you basically want to build forces the first few turns? Are you limited in how much you ...

Well, I played out Sibley and won a minor victory - took El Paso and basically just held it the last few turns. I was still unable to organize my forces into a division or army and suffered a 35% penalty. Wondering what I was doing wrong?

Thanks for all the responses. I was starting to figure out on my own that the militia and volunteers couldn't move. I probably just need to be more patient forming an army or two. I'll play Shiloh and Bull Run a few times too. I had the same experience with Unity of Command - different game play tha...

Tips on Sibley? Frustrated newbie

I really want to like this game but I'm incredibly frustrated. I've done the tutorials and thought I'd try Sibley from the Union side to get my feet wet. I've been raising units in Colorado, CA, NM, and AZ. There are only a handful of commanders as far as I can tell, so I'm not sure how to organize ...
