Re: Leader Promotions

Excellent question, Andrea. I have no idea why they have a section on 'promotions' in the TYW manual. But in my many campaigns I have never seen a leader 'eligible for promotion'. I have seen leaders seniority change due to battlefield results, but never any promotions. Perhaps Leibstandarte (HQ gam...

Re: Not god, nor tsar, nor hero...

Thanks, Comrade Nikel. I am very distressed with the current situation. I really wanted to finish the AAR but it is rather pointless without all the previous work. I wonder what prompted this sudden an unannounced change to the forums?

Re: Not god, nor tsar, nor hero...

I apologize - I was a bit harsh. I just saw several hundred hours of work vanish in a flash... No excuse for rudeness though. Thank you for your efforts in this matter.

Re: Not god, nor tsar, nor hero...

If all that work is lost then this AAR is over, unfortunately. What a waste! I will still finish the game and let you all know how it turns out.

I have used 'Subversion' in past games but I couldn't see that it had any affect at all, either to help me or hurt the enemy. Nothing changed (that was evident to me in the game) regardless of the % support of the population for either side. And it really don't like 'busy work' in games. With all of...

Replacements use more money than WS, so money is the restriction here, money and conscripts. So I am not sure what I could spend the WS on if I need to save money for replacements.

As far as I can recall there are no leader promotions in TYW. Leaders remain at the same rank for the entire game. The whole command structure is much simpler than in other AGEOD games. There are no 'GHQs' or Army headquarters. Within a stack of units the most senior leader with the highest rank (1,...
