Thank you for a well fought campaign. I got very lucky when KY seceded so early. That was a big plus for the Union.

1) No, not at this time. 2) No. Players need to use garrisons just like in real life. 3) Yes. Adjacent to controlled harbours is a good idea. 4) No. 5) Yes. Keep marines, lose the sailors. Just because they know how to sail boats doesn't make them experts in amphibious assaults or opposed river cros...

You can lose more than 1 cotton bale if they rot. I lost 6 in one turn in my CSA game during the first tourney round.

In theory, limiting single general units from crossing enemy territory makes sense, but I wonder about enforcement. For example, suppose I need to move my general 1 region east, but the computer pathing is to move south then north east, and the region south of me has 1 enemy cavalry unit. What woul...

Well, while you are at it. Time to show up on our match :) Kidding, aside, there should be a rule that anyone who has not started his game in the next few days is out of the tournament. If replacements can be found, good, if not, just consider his matches lost. Good enough for me. But what about th...

If it is the case, this is a big big problem, because it means that it is an engine featured that can be exploited.

There is a downside to this configuration. During combat an enemy force will not target the Army if there is an active Corps in the region. A wily opponent would attack the Army stack and let the Corps mtsg in support. Once that Corps enters the region and joins in the combat, it's units will get al...

Yeah, an ADC has to have an SR of 4. Oh, I see - you['re confusing Extra Guy Who Helps with CPs Available with an ADC. First, I think an Aide-de-Camp has to be with an Army Commander (unsure). I am real sure he has to have a 4 for an SR. I think he helps with the Army Cdr's SR, but whatever he does...

I always thought the ADC was the supporting cast, just lending the 2 cp to give the division the 4 cp needed to operate without penalty.

Is there something I'm missing here?

Leaders with certain traits can benefit the whole stack even if they don't have a command. The one trait that is of most use is Artillery officer. The aide-de-camp type leader gives 2 cp to a solo division, so it will operate without command penalties. John B Hood (3-0-0) makes a good aide-de-camp f...

I'm playing v1.03 as USA. It's early in the game.

I use the development card in east TN to get loyalty back over 50%. That helps restore FOW and helps limit the range of Union partisans, which can really create havoc in the region. Combined with martial law and fortification you can regain loyalty over the most important regions by the middle of 18...

Corps gets bombarded

After running an early June 1862 turn I saw the following message; 29/56 Washington Defenses bombarded us and our J. Longstreet Corps took 41 hits. We returned fire dealing 0 hits to them. Huh? Since when does a fort bombard a land unit in an adjacent region? Longstreet started in Frederick MD and m...

There are many regions with loyalty <50%. Do you develop them all - CSA does not have enough development cards? I usually beef up only Knoxville loyalty. One card available, so make it work. It takes 9 turns, but once it runs it's course it can be replayed. The martial law card appears to be single...

Norfolk gets the fort first. After that it's usually Paducah for me. Pierre LA looks like a good spot as well to protect the lower Mississippi especially if New Orleans falls. It fronts 3 river regions to the west which gives two shots at any fleet that try run up the Miss. Either a fort or a well e...

It may be that there is just no request for ammo. Supply gets consumed every turn, so there is always a request, but ammo only gets consumed during battles. So if your armies and wagons are all topped up with ammo, then there is request for it and so the ammo will sit in St Louis.
