Returning player completely lost....

Hi, I buy every AGEOd game at release, but through lack of time I play them in intermittence (I haven't got round to playing the TYW one for more than a couple hours yet), I wanted to get back into ACWII but I'm at a loss on the confederate strategy it seems a lot harder than AACW. Any tips on start...

Some hints on what to do in starting moves.

Helo, although I'm a veteran AGEOD player (I have played and own every AGEOD game) I would not call myself a good player. I want to start a campaign in WON but as one of the smaller factions: Prussia, Spain or the Ottoman empire. An tips on what to do? As Prussia I just got bored as nothing was happ...

Since the guard would be there with Napoleon himself most of the time ( if not always) shouldn't there be a Napoleon specific battleplan during the battle?

I hope you'll keep the battle plan mechanic as this would seem really relevant in napoleonic warfare.Al so include very different plans for the opposing nations as revolutionary French didn't employ the same tactics as the british on the peninsula for example.

is it 1805 to 1815 or 1793 to 1815?

Hi, Historically, close combat was very rare, so that wouldn't really be realistic. I'd say: 1_ include it in the prebattle plans and then roll to see if guard engages after 2nd round. As you'd know on the morning of the battle if this is going to be "THE" battle or just a skirmish. Also a multiplie...

WSU is actually "ok" for EE my main issue was getting funds...I thought it was drastically low compared to CP and WE. Making bucket loads of milita divisions seems very "russian" but is not doable in the game due to the low funds you get.

how do you sort generals by seniority? Playing CP with an alternate war plan, I want to nominate a GHq for the West but can't find a suitable 3* general for the role, the roster seems very unwieldy for this.

Army HQs will never attack by themselves and always fight in support of another stack, if any is present. This is the GHQ in EAW. for example hHndenburg on the CP eastern front. it prevents you from using the GHQ as an extra army since it can't attack on it's own but will help defend if near one of...

overall do you include ** generals in your armies or just leave the brigades loose in the Army? since independant corps are so useful in this game to serve as reserve, fill gapes in the line, etc... I prefer to save my ** general for these roles, but I might be wrong, any ideas?

I don't bother with them. If ACW 2 was anything to go by I even tended to avoid the brigades that included them in favour of cavalry.

I build light arty only for faster corps that severly lack arty, like in colonies and exotic theatres.

I believe it's on page 74ish of the manual. In a nutshell, when the rebels get over 80%, then each 1% over 80% will give 1% chance of the nation withdrawing from the war. So if my math is right, the most you can get on any particular turn is 100% rebels causing a 20% chance that turn for the nation...

Wrong costs for research and war productions.

When you mouse of war productions and research the cost isn't correct. Often it completely ignores the state fund cost. I work around it by jsut waiting until I have more funds, but it can be confusing. Here is a screenshot of the research for tanks, playing as eastern entente.[ATTACH]30227[/ATTACH]...
