1. Verden militia event firing multiple times - I could have made a 2000 CP army of Verden militia if I had saved them all!
2. Saxony and Brandenburg never entered the war, even though they were at 100% Protestant support for 15 years or more. The Saxon Army is not very large but opening up the terrain of Saxony would have given the Swedes more strategic options in invading southern Germany and Bohemia.
3. The Catholics pretty much survived on the 'Requisition' and 'Contribution' RDC's for the last 10 years of the war. The cards seemed to have no affect on the provincial loyalty, development status or making the province pillaged.
4. 'Troops to Poland' event took double the normal amount of troops (two full stacks).
5. When Denmark left the war the Copenhagen garrison unit was teleported to the province northwest of Kiel, still locked in place, and remained there for the rest of the war.
6. A minor point but seniority of generals gets confused. Towards the end of the game Spain had two 3-star generals with seniority of 1, and an additionally two 3-star generals with seniority of 2. It led to repeated command confusion, but maybe that is what it is supposed to do.
7. The Spanish unit at Besancon (colonel, 2 or 3 regiments, a supply unit, I think) could not enter the city and could not leave the province for the entire game, even though it was not locked in place.
8. Numerous generals continue on in the game past their historical date of death, and the rate that leaders are killed in combat is too low. The following is a cursory examination of the historical death date and cause for some important leaders in TYW: Bucquoy KIA 1621; Tilly WIA and died later 1632; Gustavus KIA 1632; La Valette natural causes 1639; Christian of Anhalt, natural causes 1630; Matthias Thurn natural causes 1640; Mansfeld natural causes 1626; Saxe-Weimar natural causes 1639; Christian of Brunswick natural causes 1626; Pappenheim KIA 1632; Mercy KIA 1645; Feria natural causes 1634; Cardinal-Infante natural causes 1641; Wallenstein assassinated 1634; Gallas natural causes 1647. What this means is that you are left with a stack of leaders that are never used in action as the original leaders never die or are killed in battle.
Thanks to Leibstandarte for sticking with TYW and I look forward to another patch sometime in the future!
