It was mentioned above that the supply rules and attrition effects in this title are similar to WIA. When I played WIA the AI loved to march around in the winter and the troops melted away. Will the AI in this game behave better in the winter?
Thanks for any opinions.

To me the obvious solution is to go back to the old way where the generals whom you could promote flashed red in the ledger.

When the game first came out, many recommended starting with the Eastern Entente. That's what I did. After learning the ropes, I then played the Central Powers. IMO that's the way to go.

Yes, you need to be in control range. I RR my GHQ to areas where I can form armies. If a real long haul, I use repositioning.

My GHQ would gain seniority as generals linked to his command won battles, but he never gained any experience etc. until he was actually fighting in a battle with troops in his own stack. I'm not sure why you're having no change in the GHQ stats if he's fighting in battles with his own stack because...

After reading your post, I also saw zero change in the GHQ stats. I added some combat units to his stack, added him to a couple of battles and his stats started to change. Apparently he must be in combat to have any change.

German Colonies.

I transported a 2 star general to a colony. Instead of the usual 24 without a penalty he only had 12 just like the 1 star generals already there. WAD?
Thanks.

I really like using it. I find it especially helpful when you have the superior commander and you get a heads up on whether the opposition is planning to fight or withdraw. You can then craft your tactics to match what they're planning.

3 Star General question.

When you have a 3 Star General leading a stack do you "fill" him with combat units like a 2 Star General or you leave him "empty" and just leave him to command?
Thanks for any opinions.

IMO the ledger for generals was a lot more user friendly in my older AGEOD titles. You could easily sort them by name or rank and if they were able to be promoted they flashed red.

Since the game has areas such as Africa and China is it possible for Germany to try for an ahistorical result in those theaters? I really like trying to alter history in games like this.

In the Grand Campaign what are the number of armies allowed for each side? Playing Prussia I couldn't go above 4 armies.

Great game!

I'm really happy with my purchase. I've been playing the 4 player Campaign to get around the Russian bug. Is there any work being done on fixing the 2 player Campaign? Is there any way to select more than 1 country when you want to play the in the Austrian coalition?

Thanks for your answer, especially about not always promoting.

IIRC, another possibility is that if a stack has bright red provinces adjacent to it, it cannot move there.
