Your general is English (Red background) while your troops are Colonials (Orange background) => Huge malus. Yep. Same thing happens in the ARW scenario with German troops under British commanders (but having just one German officer in the stack seems to make it go away) and I suspect with French/Am...

Thanks for the info. No industrializing for the North. Got it. As for RR and river transport, what's a good base number to shoot for? Whatever you need plus a few tens of units extra for shipping your military forces around, there's a tooltip that tells you if you need 300, 400, 200 units of locomo...

Naval strategies from 1861?

As a new player who's only played through 1861 so far, I was kind of wondering what kind of naval builds you generally employ, especially as the Union, and what the purpose of those builds are. Do you try to enlarge the navy to enhance the blue-water blockade and go after Confederate commerce raider...

What I'd most like to see in AACW2 is an improved ability to manage your armies, in the sense of being able to see what they are doing. The current ledger design is through, but makes it difficult to separate your various forces, such as militia forces preventing random raids, units mustering-up, re...

Thanks again. Another question (if you'll keep indulging me) What states do you normally divide between East and West? Or better yet, what is the dividing line? Illinois west, Indiana East? Or Mississippi east, Alabama West (split Tenn/KY) for the CSA? I haven't been playing the game long (to say t...

Since I installed this patch, BoA2 has been crashing much more often, requiring that I fire up the task manager to force quit it. The visible symptoms are all of the interface buttons (eg., the menu, next turn, etc.) buttons "locking" in the depressed position, and none of them or the keyboard hot k...

My feeling was that the reviewer was expressing a general desire for a longer game--one closer to Civilization or Paradox's efforts. This is supported by an earlier comment about how "the scope of the game is so slim" that it will be offputting to potential customers. I am sure (she?) will be more t...

Complex doesn't signify better... Ah, but it usually does signify more to do! You're right that it might be busy work, but consider this: if all else were equal, would you go with the wargame with the: * more complex and detailed rules? * or the less complex and simpler rules? A lot of people here ...

Victoria stole my heart a long time before I ever heard of VgN :love: But seriously, I suspect that I will prefer Victoria over Vainglory in the end. Why? I'm an economic gamer, not a wargamer. The first complex strategy game I ever played was Sim City 2000. Not that I mind a good battle, but for me...

Don’t be scared of jumping on the long campaigns. They are very playable. On 1775 you start with little forces besides the ones at Boston siege and things will evolve progressively, letting you get hold of what’s going on. But be prepared to be swamped by the Redcoats in 1776/77 :blink: :D Hope you...

1775 "Canada" Campaign--How to win as Americans?

Hi all, I just got this game on the 20th and must say it's quite excellent. :thumbsup: Really enjoying it. I've been playing some of the shorter campaigns to practice how to play and manage my forces without the stress and greater field of one of the grand campaigns. In particular, I've focused on t...

I first heard about AGEOD over on Paradox, really about the time that they agreed to publish RoP (I think). I looked over here, and you guys looked pretty interesting, but I didn't actually register here or buy any of your games until just now.
