Well, first up, I would like to have two shorter campaigns to play, 1812 through to the end of the war, whenever that might be, and from 1805 through to 1807. Both of these should have weekly turns so that I feel sufficiently in control of my forces and not be able to influence events for 2 weeks at...

This was with normal (not easy) supply rules. Just to be clear, what setting do you have for Attrition?

That is an interesting quote. If only it were accurate. German casualties in that attack, while certainly light, were not non-existent.

The zero casualties is hard to justify. Light casualties maybe. But none is a bit hard to swallow. I think that result is more of an aberration than a reflection of how the game generally works. I certainly wouldn't try to defend it as being anything else. here's a quote for you ;) "On 26 September...

it's the best pure WWI war game available. I would agree with that too and that's why WW1 Gold is finished for me. The actual war game is by far the most important aspect of the fun of playing for me and, as we both agree, TEAW's war game is better than WW1 CE's. WW1 Gold was a great game too. It w...

EAW is just a different game than I had hoped it would be. Then it is most fortunate for you that you can continue to play WW1 Gold to your heart's content for a considerable time to come. For me, there is no going back to WW1 Gold. It is the only 'AGEOD' sold game that I have uninstalled from my h...

Given that the game engine takes into account so many factors when computing combat strength, I don't really see a problem that the base stats are almost the same for all nations.
