Re: Russia and Caucasian Tribes: What's the deal?

Interesting, good to know. However, normalizing these bad relations simply with State Visits would take a long time. Are there other options, besides taking their bases and holding until relations are diplomatically brought to neutral? Also, does holding these towns and outposts have an influencing ...

Russia and Caucasian Tribes: What's the deal?

How can the Russian player deal with the Caucasian tribes? Many of them (the Kuban, Chechens, Azerians, etc) are at war with Russia on the map from the beginning, yet they are diplomatically at peace so they cannot sign a peace treaty. So how can Russia pacify them, what are the mechanics exactly? W...

How to play single-player Russia without breaking the AI?

I begin an AAR playing Russia from January 1805 on another forum. What would your tips and advice be not to break the AI too much? I am pondering the following moves: 1) Do we go straight for Napoleon and ally ourselves with Great Britain to join the Coaliton? 2) Do we pursue a bash-the-Ottomans-fir...

Re: Use of Armies before Corps are enabled

But Armies cannot initiate combat, as per the manual. So what's the use, without Corps?

Let's say I have an Army with enough units to reach 21 CP, how can I use them for combat? Or should I leave it empty behind and use only Independent stacks to fight, until Corps arrive?

Re: Use of Armies before Corps are enabled

I am not sure I understand what you mean by "command control", game-wise. If I enter a battle with an Independent stack and a full-CP Army lays nearby, will the latter still march to the sound of guns? Will they still act as an operational reserve? What is confusing to me is that Armies ca...

Re: WoN current state

Always felt that soloing was not really playing. There's always the subconscious impulse to favour one side and no mystery exists of the other player's intentions.

I might purchase for multiplayer if there are enough players.

CW2 and Cavalry raiding out of range

Hi,

Of course, the AI is clearly performing less optimally in army-by-army mode. I THINK I finally managed to spot the reason for this, and already notified Calvinus about it.

You can move units during this phase, namely available Corps in the Reserves of the activated Army, which are automatically put in a movable stack.

If you click to select that detachment, you'll see that you can move it.

You're playing in army-by-army mode, no more than one battle can take place in one area. A battle already took place in Gumbinnen.

Are you sure the problem isn't the save game? Have you tried with a clean started game?

Perhaps 1.086H isn't save-game compatible.

If this is from a clean scenario, however, this is indeed worrying. :(
