April 1781 To the west, after having driven Campbell away from the Mississippi and back to the Mobile area, Ezpeleta will move to Baton Rouge while a garrison regiment marches for Natchez. The plan will be to leave Giron-Moctezuma in this region in case Campbell comes back looking for trouble. He’l...

I found out how to order troops (from a different province) onto ships that then move off in the same turn by accident :) what you do is to set up the naval move order and then order the land units to meet the ships in their (the ships) start province, the ships will 'wait' till you arrive and then...

January 1781 I’m going to try moving my wagons this time having the bateaux offload them to NO, rather than land in port. Maybe that’ll make a difference. Galvez concentrates on not starving for a bit. My natives are sent to scout Pensacola, I’m hoping it’s mostly empty. https://farm2.staticflickr....

I forget that garrison thing too. Across the various games it can be tough to remember which units count as 'regular'. Most of the time I find my error by accident when browsing the map; cities that are not under your proper control have silver stars. Gold star cities are earning VPs. I seem to rem...

aye, having to leave regulars to hold down captured cities is a real problem in the War of Independence scenarios as they are vulnerable to being destroyed by a strong raiding force. if you storm a town then you capture the ships regardless of if you have a fleet off shore (guess this reflects the ...

Well, I'm back. To those of you following the AAR, and especially the kind commenters, my apologies. Over the last month I've managed to lose major time to holidays, travel, sickness, very busy work and even an extended loss of internet service (snapped cable: 20 minutes to fix, 5 days to get them t...

May 1780 I’m getting to the point where I’m wondering if some action I take will suddenly trigger British activity. It can’t be THIS easy. Col Giron-Moctezuma has locked inactive in Habana after his one brief month of freedom. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/585/23902023385_228c567334_z.jpg Conseque...

I'd love to make a matrix showing which games had which rule conditions, a refresher reference when switching between them. Ha, I'd love even more someone else doing it for me. Maybe someday when I've loads of time, though I don't own all the games still and doubt I have the systems knowledge to do ...

Agreed, thanks for the AAR Loki. When I played solo in this scenario recently Washington split his forces, I got to break out, capture him and the depot. It was like a gift from the gods to resolve the Boston situation. I don't envy you having a human opponent who knows to keep all those bright gree...

Thanks very much Cardinal Ape, glad you like it! You're right about the race and St. Augustine, facts I grasped in the abstract during the early part of the scenario. As it happened, time had a way of creeping up on me. Then right on past me... You know, I knew to set to passive to prioritize replac...

January 1780 It is a simple fact, proven by the greatest natural philosophers of Spain and accepted by all reasonable scholars, that a people’s wisdom, vigour and comity, their fitness to rule, is directly related to the warmth and pleasant nature of their native environs. Disagreeable temperatures...

The British aren't very strong in this scenario, considering the area they're responsible for. I think under a human player their best option would be to act as a spoiler; not trying to win outright, so much as muck about with objectives to frustrate the Spanish. Might be possible, though AGEOD game...

August 1779 Results That was easy. I’ve besieged Natchez. No sign anywhere of British moves, except perhaps the oddity that they seem to have managed to pillage their own territory around Mobile. https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5713/23414941410_8545e85663_c.jpg Scripted native activity?

Thanks for the kind words guys! Loki, consider it insufficient payback for all I've learned from your and Narwhal's AARs. Interesting that you describe the puzzle-solving aspect, I found myself thinking as the scenario went on that I was playing against myself more than the AI. It felt as though the...

Great Galloping Galvez -or- Florida for the Spanish 1779-81

I’m an AGEOD games player going back several years to when I first stumbled across BOA on a bargain rack. I’ve racked up many hours since then in WIA, BOR and AJE, with some dabbling in RUS and ROP. I like to think I’m decently skilled at the basic systems and have internalized at least the gist of ...

I hadn't even considered whether Athena could navigate chit purchases. I think CW2 uses the more elaborate, player-driven replacement purchase system that AJE and ROP do. BOA2 is simpler, mostly they come from scripted event and some really limited purchase options. I see Athena make those simple pu...

Does Athena Understand Historical Attrition?

I've been experimenting with switching from standard to historical / hardened attrition and I'm wondering: is the AI able to handle it? Does she know to send depleted units to depots to pick up elements? To build depots, or prioritize protecting and capturing them? Most recommendations I've seen are...

Not sure if it's the same thing but I may have experienced this too. I'm French at 1759. The early militia, Acadiens and a couple others that appear elsewhere(Saint Jean, Mont Royal-Quebec region?), all disbanded early and never came back. I know at least 1, maybe 2, had been trained up to the impro...

BoR Legions Failing to Build Ballistae

Hi, My legions in BoR can't be counted on to build ballistae when sieging. In both 3rd Samnite War and Ager Gallicus scenarios so far, sometimes they build them immediately, sometimes they go many months without. I'm finding in lots of cases they never do, I either starve the defenders out or have t...
