Re: Missouri Brigade

In the CW2 DB, a CSA Missouri Brigade exists with Unit ID #226 that is Elite. However, I could not find a single elite MO regiment unit. I am not aware of a method to "split up" a brigade. It would be possible to have the elite infantry regiment survive when the MO Brigade got gutted in ba...

Re: Confederate Coastal Forts

So, if every CSA coastal garrison (of units) were split as described, then an advantage might be gained. Straight Arrow, this might be something that can be added to the CSA list of things to do. Lightbrave, your idea has born fruit. Good work.

Re: Confederate Coastal Forts

Dear Captain, if I split the two artillery elements in the garrison in each fort into two separate batteries, say the big guns remain in the fort and the infantry and second battery move out on the beach and entrench, might each fire at passing ships? I ask because I read in the Wiki that shore batt...

Re: Confederate Coastal Forts

As far as I could tell, the garrisons were having a beach party for the rest of the war and did not return to the forts. :) General Kelly said that he went to Arlington to visit the graves of the men his orders had put there. Soldiers want to give it to the enemy. They want to be brave and honorable...

Re: Harper's Ferry

As the Union player, I never try to hold HF. I blow the depot and then leave the armory to the CSA. The region is on the wrong side of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers for the Union. If a Union force is under seige in HF, then a relief force would have to cross one of those rivers at a severe disad...

Re: Confederate Coastal Forts

Everything works if you let it. Left click on the garrison stack, then drag it over the blue water region next to the fort and drop it. The stack is then outside the fort. I tested this with every coastal fort and the stacks remained outside for the next turn. I'm not advocating that you do this. Th...

Re: Confederate Coastal Forts

1. The defenders are in the fort, so an enemy can enter the region of the fort without requiring a auto-switch to offensive mode. This might simulate a night assault, which did happen in RL. 2. From the Wiki: "A few specific terrain/weather combinations subtract -25% from the quotas for units i...

Re: Synchronize Move

If you cursor over the Sync. move icon, it states that an Army stack and its associated Corps or two Corps in the same Army can move at the same speed. So the 6 Divsions you mentioned meet this criteria? I'm not sure, but the Traffic rule may also slow follow on stacks the one day.

Re: Supply Wagons

I prefer to use a Supply Wagon because your force gets a +10% combat bonus in addition to the lower surrender chance. Two schools of thought exist for defense. You can entrench a large force in the region. Of course, you won't have a large force available to defend every region, so you are limited i...

Re: HQ Support

The HQ acts as a Signal, Medical Service and Training Master combined. So, if the stack is going to be moving a lot, then most of the training won't get done. If the extra Command Points won't add another Division, then they go to waste. Thus, you basically end up with a Medical Service element that...

Captain Orso, one argument to remove the statues was that the men were actually traitors. I suppose that you are tacitly agreeing that this argument was never valid.
