Replay feature

I have not been able to get the Replay feature working on my BOR for the last couple patches. Anyone else also experience this problem?

"Campaign points" sound interesting, my only worry being is that they might deter a March-to-the-Sea type operation.

Yep attention to logistics is what makes these games great. The current AACW is already an amazing game, AACW2 would just need a few tweaks IMO, and not a major facelift. Things I'd consider prioritizing would be: 1) Unit recruitment. As things stand now, there is little disincentive from recruiting...

Turn 70 – December 275 – END OF GAME Wow, what a finish! I’m faced with a guessing game challenge this turn. What will the Epirans do with their main army? What will I do with my main army? My instinct is to counter-attack at Venusia. I still feel that I can beat that assortment of elephants and oth...

Turn 69 – November 275 Dentatus moved into Grumentium, where I had sent full supply wagons from Capua and elsewhere to join him (these had been sitting there since the beginning of the game, I had built them there in case those cities were ever besieged; they were not). He then descended into ...

Turn 67 – September 275 Since I cannot bear a turn of inactivity now, when there are only 4 turns left and the VP situation so critical, I split my army and put the inactive Dentatus in his own stack with Obsidius and the cavalry. The leaderless stack of infantry legions goes to Assault mode a...

Turn 66 – August 275 We move the inactive main army to besiege Hipontum, just to give it something to do. Megacles, the new Epiran commander, moves to cover Croton. The well-rested Roman navy dashed around Sicily to hopes of catching a tired Greek navy off Lilybaeum on blockade duty, but found nothi...

Turn 65 – July 275

He’s gone! Finally! The Epiran army is led by some guy in a pointy hat. Time for some fun … unfortunately, Dentatus is inactive. Drat.

Turn 63 – May 275 Pyrrhus still in Italy, sigh. Must wait! He has a defense value of 7, so the Roman army attacking him would be akin to a fly hitting a bug zapper. Also, my cavalry scampers back before Pyrrhus crushes it at Metapontum, and the Carthaginians suffer yet another defeat in Sicily, as e...

Turn 61 – March 275 More bad news this turn. First, Pyrrhus is still here. And second, the Carthaginians suffered yet another defeat, gaining about 30 VP or so in my estimation. It seems the Epirots raised the siege of Messana to battle the Punic forces besieging Agrigas, and won. [ATTACH]22673[/ATT...

Turn 54 – August 276

Agragas falls, which pushes me further back in VP, despite the fact that I retook the Samnite village of Grumentium. The ineptitude of the AI is killing me.
