true, after 63 it is just to see how long the CSA can hang on anyway. quitting after the 1863 campaign season works for me.

yes, i can verify that Torca has indeed resigned from the tournament. based upon his situation, i empathise with him. i will soldier forth into the final, although i'm not sure i'm worthy of the honor.

Army Names

my armies are no longer named after their commanders. they are now named generically, like leaderless stacks (I Continental Army, III Continental Army etc.) instead of Putnam's Army, Arnold's Army etc. is this how it is supposed to be in the new game?

any help is appreciated.

Leaders not showing?

i noticed when i updated to v1.13, leaders are no longer visible on the map unless they are alone. is there a way to switch it back to having the leaders "on top" of their respective stacks? is anyone else noticing this? i am currently in 1755 campaign, but have noticed with 75 & 76 also. thanks

Pocus

i am Norm's opponent in the game mentioned above. it did seem rather strange to me that his entire force surrendered after being sieged for only one turn. we have since played another turn, so which saves should i send? i am the host of the PBEM.

Unable to build Army HQ as Union v1.02

Just fired up a new game as Union April '61 campaign. i notice that there are no Army HQ's available to be purchased in the reinforcements screen.
