Re: Gathering Intel

Ill have to figure out which Cavalry Units move faster and if they have a General with movement abilities. Is there are post that shows what special traits Union Commanders have as I have never played Union before?

So iv read a lot of the forums and I see intervention is next to impossible unless you "escalate the Trent Affair" A few questions How do you "escalate" the Trent Affair? Does intervention only happen when you get to 100? If not 100, then how is it calculated? For example, if int...

Re: Gathering Intel

How would you successfully hunt down a cavalry force. I can drag and drop my force on his but if he retreats back to his own army wont my cavalry pursue and be massacred. I guess what I'm asking is how can you "be careful"? If I evade combat they wont hunt down the other unit but if I leav...

Athena needs Harpers Ferry/Winchester like an addict needs a drug

Athena is getting so predictable. Iv only played like 3 or 4 full games with Athena but she does the same thing every time. Shes always aggressive in Missouri. Never tries to take New Orleans or any coastal city and if she does send ANYTHING there is like one militia unit or maybe a brigade. In the ...

Soooooo with the responses to CSA being passive in the east, is it hopeless for the CSA to win if you have a halfway competent Union player who goes on the defensive in the East. For that matter, couldn't the Union just play defense all around until 1863 or 1864 when they will have built up a massiv...

Thanks for the feedback Orso, I appreciate the response. I must respectfully disagree with your comment about how an army should have to attack if they move into an occupied region.

Agressive UI not that agressive

It took a whole year for the Union army in Alexandria to move out of that region and attack. Same with the armies near Kentucky. The only place the Union is aggressive is in Texas and Missouri.

How do you enter an area that has an enemy stack in it without attacking? Every time I go into an area with an enemy stack I always have to attack.

Also, why do the battle post always end up with an even number. Also when you have a battle and the outcome is Confederate (300) (-300) and union (3000) (-0) Union Victory does this mean the confederates surrendered because I know the 300 men could get a few volleys off before they are all killed.
