Re: A Fatal Conflagration

Made adjustments to the attachments needed due to the move to the new AGEOD forums, corrected a few more errors (!) added translations for some non-english terms and deleted several duplicate posts. I will keep at it!

Re: Not god, nor tsar, nor hero...

Comrade Nikel, it is good to be back on the warpath again! I got all the old screenshots (that Generalissimo was kind enough to reload) back into their proper places in previous posts and am now moving forward to victory! Regarding the Caucasus, I am moving four Red Army Corps into the region as we ...

Re: Not god, nor tsar, nor hero...

Thank you, Generalissimo, for your work on the forum. Right now I see the buttons 'options' and attachments' but when I try to add one of my standard JPEG screenshot files (334KB) it says the file is too large. My JPEG screen shots are in the 300-800KB range so that means I still can't continue this...

Re: Leader Promotions

Excellent question, Andrea. I have no idea why they have a section on 'promotions' in the TYW manual. But in my many campaigns I have never seen a leader 'eligible for promotion'. I have seen leaders seniority change due to battlefield results, but never any promotions. Perhaps Leibstandarte (HQ gam...

Thanks, Comrade Nikel. I am very distressed with the current situation. I really wanted to finish the AAR but it is rather pointless without all the previous work. I wonder what prompted this sudden an unannounced change to the forums?

I have used 'Subversion' in past games but I couldn't see that it had any affect at all, either to help me or hurt the enemy. Nothing changed (that was evident to me in the game) regardless of the % support of the population for either side. And it really don't like 'busy work' in games. With all of...
