To say that WIA is a simple remake of BoA demonstrates a total lack of understanding of the differences..... I won't waste my time enumerating these, but leave it to you to actually play both games and compare before posting ill-informed opinions. I bought both games! I played both games! [color="R...

But not all players agree here. Aside from the historical authenticity some prefer a game which is somewhat faster to play then AACW and allows to focus on the military strategy with all other micromanagement minimized. :) So, NO Chains of command, marching to the sound of guns, war economy and nat...

Are many still playing this game? how stable do you all feel version 1.02c is?? 1.02c was my version out of the box: it's not very stable and scenarios are bugged. You should try last patch 1.05: not perfect game but strongly improved and definitely stable. Notice, I did not know of users having tr...

NCP "engine" is to be re-visited in some aspects. Battle resolution, use of cavalry according to Napoleonic age doctrine, regard for attrition rules and their effect over forces by the AI opponent.

Yes: names are historical, but not dates!
Most WWI aces were in service later mid' 1916.. others were already died at that time.
In your xls file all careers start at 1914 and end at 1920!
