100 Years Ago Today

Gents,

On today, 100 years ago, in 1918, at the 11th month, 11th day, 11 minute, and 11 second, the guns fell silent on the Western front.

May they rest in peace.

Re: Confederate Inflation

Just as a side note,

Ageod's CW2 massively under represents the historical CSA's rate of inflation.

By the war's end, prices in the South had risen by over 9,000 percent.

Re: Confederate Inflation

However, I didn't get an answer to my question about the duration of the event. I was at about 13% I think. Will it go back to 13% after the event is done? I don't believe the inflation will reverse through the event ending. Your graybacks will remain locked into the higher rate. I think only bond ...

I'd say keep spending. Even in the best of times, there's never enough cash to fund the South's war effort.

Can militia tear up or repair rail tracks? Or must one use a regular unit? Is the chance of success equal to the unit’s strength?

There’s a strong WW I feel to the combat system. It appears that Republicans suffer much heavier casualties then Nationalists in combat. Are these correct observations?

I guess the Carthaginians commanders should also be benefited by this issue, a good solution to equalise would be to remove the admiral capacity for those Consuls who had not a significant naval participation in history to match more or less the number of Carthaginians.
