Xtrg, Couple things I noticed while watching your new episodes. Division ability comes in Oct '61, corps in '62... March, I believe. Also, you can combine single militia regiments together to form small brigades. It'll give a slight boost to their combat power and help when forming them into divisio...

Speaking of the Union's mentality being like the Soviets... This happened in a game of mine a while back. That's what can happen when a reinforced and entrenched force under Lee deals with an attacking Union force. Paper rock scissors. A few more battles like that and it was game over. [ATTACH]34739...

Gilmer, I'm sensing some frustration. Is the current game not just going well for you, or are the bugs and game designs getting to you? From watching some LPs it appears there are some problems with the game itself. Truth be told, it has me wary of a purchase. I love Ageod games, and I don't want to...

Just a few things I always remember to do when playing as the CSA. 1. Forget navy. It'll take half of your resources to build up a navy strong enough to take on the Union (and besides, it will take forever). Focus on land builds and for navy go for cheaper blockade runners. 2. Some light industry bu...

ArmChairGeneral discussed 2 options already. But you have a 3rd. It's like in chess. If an opponent threatens a piece or a side, you can create your own threat. You could assemble your forces to move on Washington as well. It might trigger some Union troops to retreat back to Alexandria/Washington....

Before anything else, I would strongly favor a Pride of Nations 2.... The engine could use some optimization for large scale conflicts first.

Depends on which game/side I'm playing as. For something like Civil War 2, if I'm playing as the Confederates I bump up the AI aggression a bit to replicate the Union advances into the South. Even then the AI doesn't invade much until late game and they rarely do coastal invasions, though I have had...

Defeat bumped by a late game NM event. Ouch. I feel your pain, buddy. My current CP mid-game is going pretty well. Hope I can avoid those NM loss events that got you. The scope of TEAW might be a bit too big for Ageod's engine. It can start to crush under the weight of its own complexity, especially...

No navy at Petrograd. I just went straight up the rail line leading from Riga and laid siege to it.

Waiting to pull the trigger on a purchase until at least an initial patch. The release version seems to have a few bugs. Looks good though. Never played a Thirty Years War game before. I think I would definitely choose TYW over Pike and Shot.

I think the old answer would have been Wars in America. However, the engine has been updated and changed quite a bit since then. For a good dose of gameplay using the AGE engine, the best would probably be Alea Jacta Est. It offers simple scenarios, a simplified recruitment panel, and the newer feat...

For me the AJE series had more qualities.

TEAW is obviously a tweaked version of the ACW II engine. TEA...
