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: Wars of Napoleon New Scenarios?

My guess is they are busy trying to finish Wars of Succession. WON also has some conceptual issues that arguably need resolving before new scenarios are developed. Namely, the idea of having all the minor countries and tribal confederations run by their own AI just doesn't work well, either in terms...

Re: Ageod teams up with the Sealed Knot Society for the English Civil War!

That is great news. AGEOD should continue arrangements like this in the future for its games. I think they did something similar with CW2. There are a lot of historical societies, educational foundations, etc. that would love the idea of these games as teaching tools. This could address some funding...

Re: Game still to unbalanced for CSA

I think the best way to address balance issues is by adjusting the VP. I think CW2 is like Matrix WIP - the Japanese and CSA best shot is early on.

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

I would say the game is an excellent tool for teaching new players about history. I play RUS more than any other AGEOD game just because of how fascinating the topic is and the tremendous flexibility of the game itself. Both sides, White and Red, have distinct strengths and weaknesses. Each side has...

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...

Just a comment on English Civil War design. I hope some consideration is given to NM balancing mechanics like ROP and RUS have. TYW and ESP don't have these, so they remain vulnerable to the "NM death spiral" effect.

Re: RUS 2?

So it goes againt the idea of using the TEaW map (and I am not very fond of letting down the East, even to spread revolution to the West). Too bad the WON map (and I assume the WSS map) don't go past the Urals. I would assume Russia east of the Urals is about two more WON-size maps. Well, it's stil...

It would just seem a shame to not take things to the next level and support a RUS 2 which would take up a number of great suggest...

Re: RoP nostalgia

I am hoping that after WSS is out - and hopefully a great success - AGEOD will return to the prospect of making a WON two-player campaign, perhaps as an expansion. But if they want to start from scratch, it can be WON 2.

I have a question on the Czechs. According to the events, they begin departing Russia in 1919. However in several PBEM's as Reds, I have noticed many Czechs, especially Czech leaders, seem to stick around anyway. In a game I am in right now, I just destroyed a bunch of Czech units near Samara and it...

Although the Whites get 4 stars now instead of 9 - which I think is better balanced - does it effect still all White and White Allies (e.g. Poles, Balts, Caucasus)? It is more a logic issue.

I have seen Red Militia auto-upgrade if they gain stars through combat. Maybe this is the code from CW2 or ACW where they can auto-upgrade if they gain stars, and this was imported into the code of RUS?

Re: Question on White Military Dictatorship Event

If confirmed, the PBEM Red players will have to very carefully not let the Eastern Whites hold Omsk too long after they are able to switch to a Military dictatorship (untill some new volunteers and patch show up). I've thought about that, but the only way to really do that is to artificially hold o...

Re: Question on White Military Dictatorship Event

Thanks for the replies. One of the reasons I'd asked was because my sense remains that the experience boosts of the White Dictatorship event need some balancing. In a current PBEM, the Whites lost the Komuch in late 1919 and declared dictatorship. Over the course of the next nine turns, as each Whit...
