That Kazan fight was something. I've never wanted to stop "winning" battles before, but I certainly wanted the ride to stop there. :) Too many more victories like that and my force would have been toast. Pyrrhic victories? At least you have some victories. 1919 seems promising. You hear the singing...

I believe the cross should be RIGHT of the dead leader, so it possibly is not a bug.

Durk, I think I will host the games because it seems easier but if someone care about he can host, not a problem for me. Now I need to collect ( private me if you want) everyone's email and hopefully we will start today ( evening most likely). Or dropbox? I can host, if you would like. My email is:...

Even though progress was being made on the multiplayer game issue, I can't help but jump in on the activation issue raised. It is indeed illogical that a unit starving would sit still. I agree. But in other cases the activation rule is perfectly historical: At the outset of WWI in the East, for exa...

Greetings Vadim, if Metatron does not wish to participate due to the absence of the activation I would be willing to volunteer to be his substitute for the Siberians. If you want a suggestion by the way, why not you have two games: one with me and anders and one with Durk and Metatron. Especially if...

Very interesting mod, I am attentive to the news. By the way, I heard there were a few White Russians fighting for General Franco, who they called "The Spanish Kornilov". General Miller, the head of the Russian All-Military Union the successor of the White Armies in Russia, I heard worked on sending...

In my opinion the idea is interesting. I personally hate it when my troops call off an attack because "their cohesion is too low", and the system you are offering will help decrease the inconvenience. Though I am not sure about whether the AI should be allowed to give orders. There is another proble...

I'll send you guys Durk's email address, you can send him your email info and we'll work on getting a game under way. Don't know what dropbox is. I c...

Hi Altaris, the Grand Campaign instead of Kolchak sounds good to me. And a third-party host would be good--since this is my first PBEM game, that would probably be preferable as I'll have less chance to screw something up for everyone. Orel, when you say you don't touch Interventionist forces, do y...

I'd be interested in taking the Reds. Also, I could probably round a non-playing 3rd party host if you guys wanted. Would you guys be interested in playing the standard Grand Campaign rather than the Kolchak one? Is there a reason why Kolchak is preferable? Let me guess, are you offering Durk as th...

No activation rule at all is fine. That sounds good to have the Merchant shipping income at 100% (the standard rule). Any house rules regarding play that you find useful?

Hi Orel, thanks for the interest in playing! I have no preference in who will host. I am happy to do so. For the Activation rule, would you be interested in using the middle option? (Penalties if unactivated, but can always still move.) Isn't the Activation Rule the friend of the Whites? :) Any pre...

Troops Cooperation: Ideas on Improvement

If there is something that could be greatly improved, then this is the cooperation of troops in the game. Something I would offer to consider: 1. All troops having generals should have the ability to march to the sound of guns in the neighboring region, not just corps and armies. 2. Troops should be...

Yes, Budenny is excellent when he has at least a 8:1 ratio or the enemy is already retreating. If you see his WW2 battles, you'll see he can't do anything against germans, he is among the worst Red generals (like Stalin).

Both sides relied heavily on it as mobile breakthrough and shock troops. Almost all memoir sources tell about the devast...
