Re: Playing as a mercantilist

I cannot speak for France, but I have been playing Italy in a multiplayer setting and I am doing quite well with a smart mixture between a mercantilist and an export-oriented economy. It just means playing to your country's strengths. Italy and France have a lot of food resources, including some for...

News of a new game from AGEod is always good news. The return to a simpler model may also bring in new players that are concerned with the multitude of options offered by other AGEod titles. I must ask, is this the "new" game that was talked about or is there something else in the works that will us...

Thanks for the assist Loki, we will try this next. I do have to mention, however, that the country experiencing the biggest unrest problems (Austria) is also the country with the lowest militancy rates; in many regions it is at or slightly above 0. But since we are mostly playing for fun and role-pl...

Contentment problems

I am currently playing an 1850 MP campaign on another wargaming forum and some of the countries have found themselves in a downward contentment spiral. It originally started as part of an international food shortage due to unfamiliarity with the game, however that has now been (mostly) corrected. Un...

Thank you for the history lesson guys, much appreciated. I must admit, the Russian Civil War is not a period of time I am most familiar with (although I did know about the Intermarium and was excited to see it modelled in-game in case of Polish victory).

Thanks for the explanation guys.

@ andatiep I understand your position.

My only problem was tha...

The thing with AGEod's games is that they always strive for historical realism as much as possible. A consequence of this is that major nations cannot just jump around gobbling up minors in a single bite. If Prussia suddenly decided to go and forcefully annex German minors around it, both France and...

About Waterloo, do not forget that the Alternative History scripts get played out in the Grand Campaign, not the smaller scenarios. As such, you will be free to do whatever you want and use whichever troops you want in the decisive battles of your campaign (either in 1805 or 1815). As for Hanover, g...

On one hand I sympathise with the Belgians, as Carinthia tried to block one of our coin designs for "historical" reasons. On the other hand, Waterloo is a divisive symbol, especially in the eyes of the French. With Belgium right next door, you the coins would quickly start circulating in France prop...

That's very odd. In my CP campaign, the moment EE reached 0 NM I got the Brest-Litovsk treaty event. Maybe you should attach the save file from that turn so that the devs can have a closer look at it. As for the issues associated with the UK's rebel alignment, the devs have been made aware of it and...

When playing the CP, I usually keep the Austrians in a defensive position and do not advance much into Serbia. This sounds a bit gamey, but it is better to wait for the Bulgarians to join you in the war, than waste tens of thousands of men over useless territory.

Hmm, this is very odd behaviour. Right now, my CP campaign is up to August 1916 and while I've seen the AI pull one or two less then smart moves, I've otherwise been confronted with a responsive AI that can cause problems if you don't plan your moves smartly.

Actually, you do have the limitation in the form of command points. Because they aren't "armies" attached to a GHQ, they can command fewer troops effectively, simulating coordination and communication difficulties. However, I do agree that in the case of modern warfare, this ritual could be limited ...
