Re: Army Commanders Not Leading Battles

Let me clarify some things. Memphis is in the Shelby Tennessee Region. Holly Springs is in the Marshall Mississippi Region. These regions are most definitely connected. I have 1 Army within these 2 regions. I have 2 Corps in this Army. The Army is led by Albert Sydney Johnston. (He is solitary to hi...

Premium for Volunteers

In my current PBEM, its August of 1863. Money is the thing I need most right now and I think that's gonna be the thing I need for during the rest of the war. My morale is currently 131 and my opponent is at 82. Should I just pick the option to pay no premium for volunteers? I don't see how it would ...

Who is in command?

I know if you have 1 division with 2 Generals in the stack then the highest ranking General is in charge. If I have 2 divisions with 1 General commanding each and then I bring in a 3rd General who has the highest seniority, will that General be in command of both divisions? Or does he just reduce co...

Is there a benefit to having Light Infantry in a Division opposed to having a regular regiment?

What are some good scenarios where Light Infantry would come in usefull?

Thanks Gray, i will have to start looking into these battle log reports.

Re: National moral loss when conquering structures

I agree that its a bit overkill. I think the best fix for this would be a simple one. I don't think they should necessarily change the rules about a militia unit that surrenders or is destroyed to be subject to NM change. The change that should be implemented is that there shouldn't be any "Per...

Re: Rail lines

At 2 rail lines per turn, it would take at least 25 turns to scavenge the 50 tracks. Or one might do 10 per turn for 5 turns. With war bonds issued, one IW would be producing the first turn thereafter, 2 the second turn and all 3 by the third (total of 48 WS added thus far). Two turns later you hav...
