CW2 Opponent wanted

Hey guys, took a long hiatus from the game but looking to jump right back. Was hoping to find someone willing to play the boys in blue against me even though I will be extremely rusty. I thought about playing against the AI but I just can't do it, thought I just learn again on the fly. Looking for a...

[color="#FF0000"]Early January 1861[/color] Sorry for the delay folks. Elxaime and I both went out of town on separate occasions and the game was put on hold for a minute. But we are back now and I am eager to get going again. I suppose I will just do another quick "how things stand" at the moment ...

[color="#FF0000"]EARLY OCTOBER 1862[/color] Hello again folks! Sorry for the delay, we had an order mix-up which also set me back from doing this AAR. But now we are square again so this post I will try to just outline the current situation and we will begin again from here. [color="#FF0000"]Virgin...

I agree with Havi. I don't like to see a bunch of cav deep in my rear roaming around without a leader. Also having a 30k man corps escape using magic boats after being trapped is depressing.

[color="#FF0000"]LATE AUGUST 1862[/color] [color="#FF0000"]Virginia[/color] Well there was definitely one heck of a battle in VA, actually two battles. It was unlike anything I've ever seen before in terms of casualties. At the end of the day both battles involved well over 100k casualties. Persona...

Too true Ripster. The north's industrial output is virtually unstoppable by late 1863. Grey Fox said it best in the past that the CSA can try to win early, or just hope to commit to a "hold-em" type defense. I have won quite a few games as the CSA so it is doable, but extremely difficult. You must b...

The pleasure was all mine. I do not have the talent to create a story driven like AAR as you did, but I do hope to shed some light on the game for those who are still learning. However as Ape and Fox have already shown, there is always more to learn in these games!

If you are going heavy on the Anaconda plan, you may want to consider building a couple pairs of timberclads. I found that they do a good job of interdicting river crossings. They are fairly cheap, they come with 2 elements, and they are much more durable than gunboats. Very true. I have recruited ...

You're most welcome! IIRC, the trainers (McClellan and Halleck) have to be in separate stacks so that they both upgrade units. Quite right.

Though, it seems most of your action is in the east so far. :) When do you sail for New Orleans? Get it early and raise its loyalty, it has the potential to make you more money than New York,...
