Act of Union Broken?

I am in a PBEM in the Western campaign as Grand Alliance using the latest version. I spent 500 EP to activate the Union of Ireland, Scotland and England into a new United Kingdom. The attraction of this is that the tool tip advertises the union will increase pro-Grand Alliance loyalty to 100 percent...

Magazines, Supply Wagons and Garrison troops

Some questions: 1. When you buy garrison troops, they appear locked and cannot move, which defeats the notion you can supply newly conquered enemy fortress towns with garrison troops. Does this mean you have to use regular troops for garrison conquered enemy fortresses/cities? 2. Supply wagons are u...

WOS Thoughts

I am into a couple of PBEM but just wanted to offer some observations on WOS. First, this is a great game and great design - one of AGEOD's best IMO. They have a supply and reinforcement system that forces players to discard their preconceptions and truly grasp why the Wars of the early Age of Reaso...

Re: WoN current state

I will suggest to both of you to enjoy pbem multiplayer gaming. There are other Napoleon games for AI play which are great, but this one, like the classic game Diplomacy, requires live opponents. I think there is an audience for that, but it is a hard core niche of a niche. Aside from the practical...

Naval Interception

I am in a PBEM of WoS Grand Alliance v Bourbons campaign. I have noticed that, even though my British and Dutch battle fleets are in command, the naval interception order remains grey and cannot be chosen. The tool tip says you need a combat unit, but the stacks are full of battle squadrons. Is nava...

Re: WoN current state

Re: WoN current state

In my opinion, WoN can be revived if they remodel the campaign scenario for two players, along the lines of WoS. This can be done as a DLC, so that people who want the larger multiplayer experience can still have that. However AGEOD has said in the past a two-player version it would be a lot of work...

Re: Now that WOS is Out...How About WON as 2-Player?

Now that WOS is Out...How About WON as 2-Player?

Now that WOS is out, it would be great if AGEOD would consider a revision of the WON game to make it a two-sided version like WOS. While in theory the current six player multiplayer sounds great, it is often very difficult in practice to sustain a game with committed players (especially if you have ...

Re: Too Many Leader deaths? Or working as designed.

Just curiously, is there a mechanic in AGEOD games where replacement leaders will start appearing if there have been a certain number of leader losses? In some games the number of leaders is not very great to begin with, and if you lose 5-6 or more, it makes a real difference. In reality, new people...

Re: How great was the southern qualitative advantage over the north?

As noted, the south may have initially had an advantage due to the larger percentage of West Point graduates in their ranks and the strength of the militia tradition across the south. But it is worth remembering that at this time, even in the north, most of the population lived off the land. America...

Re: Does RUS actually work well enough for new players?

Re: Historical Trends in this game are too rigid

I'll add my own two cents to this, which is that AGEOD erred, as it admits, in departing from the tried and true 2-sided campaign approach it took in ROP and EAW. Using scripts, you can retain interesting choices even within the historical framework. There were a number of points in the real history...
