I have purchased TYW two days ago. I have played other Ageod titles but dutifully played through the tutorials before dabbling with one of the smaller scenarios - the Danish one - and felt ready to start up the main campaign.
My main campaign (Imperial side) lasted three years before I rage quit. My game is beyond saving. I have no idea why it ended so quickly in abject failure.
Here's the problem - Bucquoy is besieging Prague. He has an army of about 25,000 men/1,500 PWR. Winter is coming and still no progress so I decide to withdraw, especially as Protestant armies are moving close to Vienna. I give Bucqouy the order to move back towards Budweis - but he fails to move from Prague. Next turn I repeat the order to withdraw again - and again, and again, and again, and again and so on and so on, but he will not move. Over the space of several months in which he refuses to budge, Bucquoy's force dropped from over 1,500 PWR to 0 PWR. When there is nothing but himself and his colonel left, after every military element in his force has disintegrated, only then does he eventually decide to move!!!!!
It's infuriating and non-sensical. I cannot continue the game, or more correctly - I don't have the will to continue with the game.
Why did this happen? is it a bug?
