Is rebel ai improved? Looking good in big m game. Haven't played from the Union side yet. But as the Confederates, the Union AI seems much more aggressive (in a good way) and is pushing me around pretty good. Its a real challenge to balance out the Confederate needs for manpower, WS, replacements, ...

Clovis, I am playing as Confederate now into late November '61. Banks took Covington a couple of turns ago but has since retreated back north somewhere on his own. I have retaken w/ a Georgia cav unit. The Union AI forced me out of Harper's Ferry last turn. I had what I thought was a good division u...

I am on Matrix under the same name. I'm surprised to have been noticed over there, as I've only posted a small handful of times and only in the MWIF section IIRC. I'm going to go further in the demo and then probably buy the game. Ubercat, Mark also recognized me from the HTTR/CoTA Matrix forums an...

Gray,

With latest beta, I can't open neither of the July 1861 scenarios (with and without your Kentucky scenario). April '61 opens ok.

How about a medal for all of us grunts that have been playing the game since the beginning (kinda like the National Defense medal we all got after completing army basic training) :D . BTW, I completely agree w/ the nominations to date ;) .
