Another improvement is to add defensive tactics in the battles. They are all set-piece battles like the Antiquity but how my 860 power men can have a chance against a 2000 or 1600... and i have to atttack ??? There is only one defensive plan with a checkerboard deployment.

But battles like Lützen, Nördlingen or Allerheim were all defensive for some leaders using sunken roads, trenches, walls or house.
In the game this is impossible...for now. :)

Very enjoyable fast-moving AAR. Good balance between images and text, plus it did not get bogged down in detail.

LoyalSoldier, thanks for reading my AAR and for the kind comments. It was a pleasure to do, even after I had to start playing both sides!

Thank you, jokeon, for reading and for commenting. I recommend TYW as a unique game covering an interesting period in European history. The AI will give you a good game for a few years, and I believe Leibstandarte and his crew are working on a new patch to further improve game play. Thanks again!

Thanks to all who are continuing to read this AAR. I have read through it again and found numerous typos which I have corrected and for which I apologize. But I probably haven't found them all so I will keep at it!

Oh, come on Ripster8! Nobody expects even average non-biblical narrative literacy from the wicked Papists baby-killers.

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition either... Just say'n.

Ah, Master Random, my faithful friend and foil! "Better the blows of a friend than the kisses of an enemy," says the Good Book, and so I accept your blows thankfully. Perfection is not a destination but a trajectory and I seek only to stay oriented in that direction. And besides, as you have so faithfully pointed out, expectations of me are quite low to begin with so any improvement is indeed miraculous!

That being said, I am trying to work up the energy and the confidence to start a RUS AAR. The problem with that is it will require much more effort than a TYW AAR: so many armies, such a vast field of conflict, so many moving pieces! It's enough to send a wicked Papist baby-killer back to the monastery in despair! But we shall see...in this case the flesh is willing but the spirit is weak...but I am thinking about it...

Well Comrade Ripster8, RUS is certainly a challenge; a very deep game dealing with a complex and fascinating epoch. I trust that you could do it justice whereas I sadly, am far to pedantic and lack the wit to write compelling AAR's for public consumption. Be assured that should you embark on this road you will have at least one loyal follower.

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!
