My apologies for the delay in responding, Sir. When playing in a battle against an opponent from the other side (USA or CSA), you will usually play as the side you sign into, but when you play in a battle against an opponent from your own side (called a maneuver in this case), you can play as either...

A club of ACW wargamers is actively recruiting new officers to fight under either the Union or Confederate Flags. This wargaming club is composed of many skilled and experienced wargamers who enjoy playing various pbem games including the HPS/Tiller series and several others, with an increasing numb...

I originally assaulted with only the 4 divisions, because I knew it was likely that you would reinforce them, but I had no idea with what or from where, knowing you could at that time move forces from either Virginia or even from out west. Honestly, I wanted to hold a reserve so I could either assis...

The game was nothing short of challenging. Charles put up an excellent defense. I wanted to move my forces out to stretch his forces as thin as possible and then I had the intention to focus concentrated attacks at (what I hoped would be) thinned out points when the opportunities arose, but those op...

Looking for one opponent for Revolutionary War Campaign

I've been away from the game for awhile due to computer issues but I would like to try this game again. I would like to find an opponent for the "Whites of their eyes" campaign. I would prefer to be US to start, but I'm willing to play either side after the first game. I'm using 1.08, and I prefer t...

War of 1812 opponent?

I would like to play as either side in this campaign. I am using the new official patch 1.08, and I can do at least 4 turns per week, for sure. I am open to settings though I do prefer to play with historical attrition. This would be my first time playing this campaign, but not with the game or pbem.

I have to agree that I don't think any leader is promotable to 4*. The "Promotable? Yes" Just means that you can promote him from the rank you receive him at (Maj Gen**) to a 3* Lieutenant General. I think about every general says that they are promotable, but unless his command performs well in bat...

The East and West '62 campaigns are good, but they are significantly longer and when each person plays as north and then south, one round would take longer than an entire battle scenario tournament. And having 3 battle scenarios lends itself well to a 3 tiered competition. The scenarios may well be ...

I dont mind using rodmans, columbiads, 20lb parrots, or even siege guns in forces that I intend to move, I just try to concentrate them in forces that I don't intend to move as far or as fast. I always keep lighter forces in the area of these, and I try to play each to their strength.

That surprised me the first time that happened. I knew it had happened out of game, but I didn't think he would be removed from in-game use, until a PBEM not too long ago. I'm sure though, that he didn't mean to let you down.
