A change i would like to see

For the purpose of staying in one region and be able to patrol I think you should be able to move through regions and end up in the same region you started.

Re: Command Ratings

Just for a side discussion, has anybody seen any of their units gain more than 5 stars in experience? On every unit there are experience stars. I have personally never seen any go above 5. I think there are 9 or 10. Has anybody ever maxed them out? I know some of the best units have descriptions lik...

Re: Kentucky Secession

Ok, ill ask it a different way. If Kentucky opts for secession, is it better for the CSA if they do it early or later. What are the pros and cons for both USA and CSA for an early secession?

So my opponent held City Point Va … just south of Richmond for about 2 years. When he abandoned it 2 years later it was highly loyal to the Union with 75 percent civilization.

Clearing card

so there is a city (albequerque) that has a civilization level of 20. 68% loyalty to the Union. I am fairly certain I cant hold it for 6 turns. Has anybody ever used the clearing card just so you can plunder. 5k investment for 35k return.

Re: Why won't he siege?

If there is no Army inside the city then there must be any army outside of it in the region I would think. If they still have an army in the field then I don't think you can siege.

Re: Command Ratings

Maybe if they do a CW3 they can just double the ratings so it will be easier to distinguish the commanders. For example, if Grant was a 6-6-4 then in CW3 he would be a 12-12-8. That way Generals could be a little more different in command ratings. For instance I think Grant should be a 12-12-6 and L...

Re: Command Ratings

Have to agree with Thunder on this. Grant had all the advantages in the world over Lee and it was still very difficult for him to beat him. However, I was making this post to get peoples ideas about how maybe the command numbers should differ than what they are. If you think Grant was better than Le...

Thought id do this as kind of a fun post. Does anybody think the game is generous with ratings in the game. For instance.

Re: Confederate Inflation

thanks for the advice Arrow. I probably cant afford to stop spending anyways. However, I didn't get an answer to my question about the duration of the event. I was at about 13% I think. Will it go back to 13% after the event is done?

Its early April 1864 and due to the "event" my inflation shot way up. Does the spike in inflation go away after a period of time or is it here for the duration of the war. Should I try to conserve spending until it ends?
