I use them frequently. Especially the hold at all costs.It seems the best way to make my armies more aggressive.

Another fine game

I just had to say thanks for another great game! I now have 3 Ageod games[Boa,AACW,Wia].In my 30+yrs.of wargaming, these are by far the BEST stategic computer games I've ever played. The AI can actually beat me! Add to this the terrific support from the Ageod team and the forum community and I'm in ...

Another important consideration with forts is the zone of control it exerts. Select any unit with a fort, then hover your mouse over the circular-looking icon at the left of the status icons on the unit panel. You'll see that units in a fort generate 100 zone of control points, which is massive . G...

Unit Deletion

Can a unit be deleted? For example,if I have an unsupported supply or artillery unit in danger of being captured, is there a way to destroy it before the enemy gets their grubby little hands on them?
Thanks

I have never built a fort as rebel or union. I always have better uses for the 4 artillery the WIKI says are needed to build. As the south, it is hard enough to gather all these guns to waste on an immobile fort. As far as specific benefits go,I think most of them[like supply interdiction,or naval b...

I have asked this question before,with mixed answers.

I am not talking about units on an actual river transport,but th...

I should clarify. I find the acw AI intriguing. It has been my experience in computer wargames that AI's offer very little surprises when coducting offensives{if they attack at all}. Usually the best a computer opponent can offer is when it has overwhelming numbers of units,against a few quality tro...

After some recent discussion with Pocus, this will be 10% not 20%. However, it shouldn't affect your combat situation described above, it is only for movement processing not combat resolution. Also, for the benefit of anyone else reading this it will be on a stack by stack basis, not unit by unit o...

This is basically, correct, but at some point in the future when Pocus has time, there will no longer be a 100% certaintly of preventing a crossing. This allows for some unpredictability. Instead the max chance might be 80% or 90%... I'm leaning towards 80% because of coding issues. Each ship eleme...

Hello! While we are on the subject. Could someone tell me if you could block a river with naval units,to prevent riverine movement from land units? Or is it possible to evade no matter how many ships you have in the river? It seems to me that 20 gunboats and ironclads would be able to block even the...
