Re: Time to Increase My Difficulty Level?

I'm about to quit my campaign as the Eastern Entente in the Guns of August Scenario. It's November 1916. The Central Powers NM is at 49, the Western Entente at 62, and my EE at 108. I played on Lieutenant difficulty with small AI bonuses for detection and activation. Plus, I used historical attritio...

Re: New to AGEOD titles, sales on Steam, which should I get?

As an intro to Ageod? As others have already stated, Ala Jacta Est and/or Wars in America are probably the best introductory games. They both feature lots of scenarios with relatively low unit density. Plus, there are some terrific "step-by-step" introductory AARs for those two games on th...

Re: Replacement Issue/Bug?

As stated, I am familiar with Ageod's replacement chit system. I have AJE, RUS, TYW, and WoN which all feature similar chit replacement systems to CWII's. In those other games, purchasing chit replacements can be a major drain on your resources. Yet, in CWII, I played one scenario for nearly 12 mont...

Re: Replacement Issue/Bug?

Here is it November and this issue STILL exists.

Good if you feel it to be easy :-). But be aware that your opponents may have the same feeling.

I am a currently playing the Grand Campaign as the Eastern Whites. Despite my knowledge of the Russian Civil War being limited (with Dr. Zhivago being a big source), it's a lot of fun. RUS Gold is definitely one of Ageod's gems. However, British aid consists of tons of single element arty units that...

I'd prefer DLC that featured smaller scenarios. Sadly, Ageod's AI really struggles with WON's campaign scenarios. This has been true for almost all Ageod games: the bigger and longer the scenario the more the AI's failings are exposed and that has been even more pronounced with WON. Athena is much b...

Does anyone have any advice or tips on what's the best unit make-up for a group?

Do you keep it all one unit type? Or do you create a combined arms force: infantry, cavalry, and artillery? What is the most effective?
