That is excellent news! It really adds some spice to the game, to think that any nation has a chance of generating a great leader.

Re: Leaders and their traits

Tamas, That is an excellent point. No one could predict when a great leader would appear. Yet, great leaders had an enormous effect on the success of many wars, and they did appear from time to toime. Considering both these factors, i think the approach of having some great historical leaders having...

Re: Leaders and their traits

Thank you for the information, Pocus. I am glad to see that there is a chance for historical leaders to appear in the general period they actually were in, as this adds much flavor. Can you tell us some of the ratings and traits leaders will have? I do understand that everything is subject to change...

Leaders and their traits

I am wondering how leaders are handled in this game. Will historical leaders be included, or will they be randomly generated? Will leaders be able to have something like the huge range of traits they had in previous Ageod games, or will they have something else. And if it is different, what types of...

Re: Second Post Release Patch

This is odd. It is November,1703, and I have looked inside of Warsaw in the Great Northern War scenario. A Saxon Polish army of no less than thirty six units is inside the city, easily the biggest and strongest AI army in the game. Many of the units are cavalry, not exactly ideal for defending a cit...

Re: Second Post Release Patch

Another possibility would be to have Karl removed from the game for five years by event if he does not capture and hold Moscow or Kiev by the winter of 1709. This would certainly motivate the Swedish player to invade Russain. Perhaps the Ai could be scripted to have Karl try for these cites no late...

Re: Second Post Release Patch

Karl XII is beating you if you believe he is too overpowered and want to lock him away five years. He is getting in your head like he did to the Danes, the Russians at Narva, and the Saxons. Actually, I have only played the Swedes so far, and have never lost to Karl. I do not think he is overpowered...

Re: Second Post Release Patch

It's also interesting to note that Karl actually didn't lose at Poltava either. Due to his leg injury the overall command was held by Rehnskiöld. In any case I think that locking him for 5 years just because of one battle or for failing to capture a certain city would be far too harsh. While I have...

Re: Second Post Release Patch

After Poltava, Karl abandoned his still large and powerful army , and decided to go to Turkey to bring the Turks into the war. His army surrendered, without a fight, to a much smaller and weaker Russian force. The plan almost worked. The Turks admired Karl as a great soldier, and hated the Russians....

Re: How to lose GNW in 3 turns ( as Sweden)

In two turn after Charles lands you can knock Denmark out of the war, which negates the Danish fleet. As Sweden it’s all about speed, and the game has been set up this way to assist in that process as it happened historically. As for the Danish fleet defeating the Anglo-Dutch AND the Swedish fleet?...
