As an aside, can we have less religion in AGEOD's games please?
If canons were replaced by cannons we would have more firepower and less reliance on priests!

Note: Key commands and features added at patch 1.04

Union AI still seems a pushover, but I didnt see anything crazy related to attrition, as in the early versions.
EDIT: What about updating the link in the Latest patches area of the forum? It still says 1.04c.

Question: Is it normal that Sir Henry Clinton has zero command points? I think I just found he will be pretty useless for me.
lodilefty wrote:He has the Quickly Angered ability, which penalizes him 4 points if in command. In a stack with a senior leader, he gets his points.
He was pretty useless to Gage and Howe too! Historically, he second-guessed his seniors and was generally a pain. Good in the field however, as evidenced by his other abilities...

But im not completely satisfied with this solution which i consider rather unhistoric. Shouldn't be Wolfe army placed rather in Montmagny region and Montcalm's army entrenched around Quebec? Did you try this schema or the one you choose is best for game performance?
I hope i didnt show much ignorance and really appreciate your work.
GlobalExplorer wrote:Thanks. I generally enjoy these subtle touches, but it's hard to play the game when you're not understanding it. I think the UI should make such drastic handicaps more noticeable. A lot of beginners will complain about this and maybe say the game is not transparent. I mean this as a suggestion for the coming games, RoP, VGN. In WiA I can live with it.
Another example: the british start the campaign with three two star generals. Clinton, Burgoigne and another one I can't remember. Clinton cannot command a stack, as we just found out. The other two are removed from the game just about the same time the stack becomes unlocked. So in the end the player needs to know in advance that they are more or less useless, and must use the one star generals. I guess I was just lucky I chose Smith and Grant for my surprise attacks on New York and Newport, had I used two star generals I would be f'ed.
In any case thanks a lot for clearing this up! So I will have to put Clinton back under Howes command.
I can certainly see how this game will be very popular with hardcore grognards and Civil War fans. For me, however, AACW has left me with very mixed feelings. The incredibly steep learning curve together with the overwhelming and sometimes mind numbing amount of details almost buried the rather excellent operational level wargame that lies underneath. In the end, I always ask myself a simple question regarding games. Did I have fun playing this? This is by far the most detailed wargame I ever played. It is, however, also the most impenetrable. Yes, I did enjoy playing this. But it honestly took me a week or two to even get the hang of it and a week more before it stopped being a chore. If you've got the time and perseverance or are a total Civil War buff, by all means get this. If you however don't rank yourself amongst them you might want to pass this one up.
