Re: WoN current state

I've played over 300 hours of WoN against the AI and after 2 full campaigns I gave up. There are so many problems with the game I finally uninstalled it as the devs are obviously not doing any improvements to the games which was a shame as I really was looking forward to a good Napoleon era game an...

Re: In the meantime, what do you play and why?

While waiting for Ageod's game I also find myself very interester bya Agressors Ancient Rome that is being developped by Slitherine... Sort of an old school CIV/colonization feel to it.

Re: Still worth a purchase?

It is still the best game they ever made simply put. Just like EUII or CIVII would still be a good buy 20 years later. This game is THE classic of their repertoire.

Re: In the meantime, what do you play and why?

Well to get proper scouting you need to send actual units to place where they can see a lot : detached skirmishers do the job really well.

Re: In the meantime, what do you play and why?

Is the AI auto compensating for losses as bad as said on Ultimate General? I did not bought it because of that. The problem is that the campaign is like in Robert Lee civil war, not a real campaign but battles after one another with imported results. Without a compensation mechanism one would face ...

Re: In the meantime, what do you play and why?

I have enjoyed Ultimate General civil war a lot, and have been indulging again into cycling manager and Crusader Kings 2.

I am waiting for a strategy game to excite my interest for a while now, Agressors Ancient Rome developped by Slitherine is intriguing to be honest.

Re: WoN current state

It's a Spruce Goose. Like PON, a game that's just too big. yeah... The engine just cannot carry that many variables and moving parts. For it to work the engine should have been focused on the wargame and all the rest of the game should have been streamlined and card driven. Too bad really because t...

Re: WoN current state

Small countrie should have made passive or "card" driven. The fact that the CP has to run all elements for them (diplo, production, troops movements, etc..) made the game unnecessarily heavy and messy.

Re: So.... When? When is the game comming?

In honestly don't understand how could the game be released in the coming weeks and no further info/screenshot/feature explanation be given here since then. It's really frustrating tbh, and it makes us fans sound lik whiny sissies which is even more frustrating.

Very interesting and encouraging read. I want to start a campaign now, in that rather sandbox mode. If one does not play Napoleon as intent on unprovoked conquest, but instead simply wanting to safeguard his empire and extend his reforms/restructuring, will the AI offer a challenge?
