This sequence of settings gets you a list of your commanders: It is not further broken down into groups of all 3-stars, etc. and does not list seniority at all, but it is by General's stats. If you try to promote someone, the game gives you a warning if this conflicts with seniority. This is how th...

Oh give me a break. The leader interface works fine. What leader interface are you referring to? Because when I play the game, I do not have a way to sort by leaders, only by units (as Orso mentions above). Whereas in AACW I could actually just sort by leaders, so I could compare seniority and stat...

Which, if I may point out, is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Why they got rid of the leader roster in a game that is focused on leaders, is something I will never understand.

I'm not sure I understand why West Virginia had to be defined as a separate state at all. Missouri and Kentucky both allow creation of forces by both sides, yet the idea of Union recruiting in Virginia is a stumbling block for many people. I'm not certain, but I believe there are ways you could res...

McDowell created divisions in organizing his forces many weeks before 1st Manassas, and even Paterson organized his brigades into divisions. Whether congress put into law the military structure of the division in 1916 is inconsequential, as they were de facto a standard of US Army organization long...

That's not actually true. The Federal army at least did have divisions. Just because the game doesn't allow them until later, doesn't mean they didn't exist. The same goes for Corps In point of fact, the United States did not establish standing, organized divisions until 1916. While ad-hoc division...

From the scripts which grimjaw posted, each side gets 10 CC's in their respective CC pools and 12 CC's are removed from the POW count. I guess the extra 2 CC are lost due to POW's being unfit for a return to service and/or subsequent desertion. What is odd to me--or maybe it is WAD--is that if I re...

Except for the obvious (both sides get conscript companies back), why does it cost NM? You'd think a prisoner exchange should increase morale and happiness among the population.

You guys are not making sense. Who attacked in Fairfax on the second turn? McDowell or Johnston? If Johnston attacked on the second turn too, why the **** didn't you say that Wraith?

Then players complained this was rather harsh, so it was changed to where the stack could retreat no matter what. Unfortunately, this caused players to chase Athena's C...
