Problem is that sometimes, when the French Army of Portugal is activated prior to Wellington's landing, its possible to save it by breaking through to Ciudad Rodrigo. Yet if you manage to save them, the army still "reforms" with the same generals and all, once Napoleon appears on the scene. The Cin...

I meant the French Army of Portugal under Junot.Why should French generals disappear with the Cintra event? That's a good question. I'm under the impression that the French Army of Portugal was historically captured by the British after the battle of Vimeiro. That's why there's the Cintra event. An...

The biggest problem is that if you manage to save the Army of Portugal, you still get the Army of Portugal reconstituted with the same generals and all.



If that happens to me...I dump the generals into Lisbon so that they get lost with the Cintra event.

This training bug was introduced in the BOA legacy patch which caused several players reinstalling the previous patch. It also prevented the training officers to upgrade the continentals under their command instead of the outlying militia garrisons which in turn led to massive dismissal of untrained...

to Offworlder: Incidentally one other gripe I got (sorry just emptying my bag of problems with the game so bear with me ) is that the French should be allowed to build more HQs.

Actually I haven't found that the epidemics have hit me too hard. Maybe it's just me but the units are just a little bit too brittle in this game which leads to a massive consumption of replacements.

Well, as it has already been said...the Brits get massive reinforcements during 1776. Nothing much you can do except to avoid an early showdown.

This is the time when you need to build your army once the continentals become available.

Bought BOA and AACW...like them both. Lack of GC and free time has discouraged me to buy NCP but I think I may have a couple of looks for the demo though and decide later.

The new version of BOA sounds interesting but I think I will have looksee first.

Noup. You get your reinforcements automatically as new continental and militia regiment enlist. The trick in Boa is to keep your regiments from disbanding.

Well, I finally downloaded the NCP demo during Xmas as I was down with a hellish flu (meaning I had time off from work).

Great...we've finally arrived to Europe and when Vainglory is finished it will include a political module, right?
