AI Recruiting Logic?

I guess there was a good reason why the game initially didn't allow the recruitment of additional garrison forces. It appears the AI likes to recruit such units to its detriment: AI Recruit.png The above is the garrison of Moscow in 1712 or 1713. Almost all those units are immobile garrison units. A...

Re: AI uses the Requisitions decision excessively

I suspect you're right that AI is really misusing that decision. I'm playing the GNW scenario. It's Jan. 1707 and the AI Anti-Swedish forces have a grand total of -358 VPs. (That's right- the AI has negative VPs seven years into the campaign!) I just used the option to remove the Saxon-Polish troops...

Re: No siege artilery for France?

All the ones available are probably already on the map. The French start that scenario with three-four "siege trains" each of which include two or three siege artillery pieces. If you lose one or more of them then you should be able to rebuild them.

The Danes Re-enter the War Event?

The Danes will re-enter the GNW if the Swedish player doesn't have 100 line elements in Sweden AND Germany. Now, what exactly does the game consider "Germany?" I had fairly large armies in both Holstein and Pomerania with additional forces in Sweden which I believe contained well over the ...

Re: (BOR - Punic Wars) Roman Consuls Won't Fail Activation Rolls

Is this bug confirmed? It sounds like a bad one especially for PBEM play.

If it is confirmed then is anything going to be done about it? Or can be done about it if Ageod has fully moved-on from AJE?

I've been playing WSS extensively since its release. Overall, I think it's one Ageod's better games and certainly their best release in years. It's as advertised- a "back to basics" Ageod experience with the classic 1-side vs. 1-side gameplay and lower "counter" density enabling ...
