Missouri Brigade

Mon Nov 13, 2017 4:50 pm

The Missouri Brigade appears early 1862 and is an elite brigade for the CSA. Its starts out with 4 or 5 elements and has one element left to be made. Now I'm not making this up but I remember seeing the brigade split up in previous games iv played against Athena. Iv seen where there was just 1 elite regiment independent from the rest of the brigade. I distinctly remember this because I thought is was kind of strange when I played Athena early on before i started PBEM. I know it does not seem like a big deal but and extra elite unit to put in a division I think is huge for CSA seeing as we get very few elite brigades compared to the Union. In my PBEM game I'm playing right now they didn't split up. Has anybody ever noticed this in playing as CSA and if so, does anybody know how to ensure the extra independent elite regiment? Iv seen this happen twice so there has to be something to it.

In the CW2 DB, a CSA Missouri Brigade exists with Unit ID #226 that is Elite. However, I could not find a single elite MO regiment unit. I am not aware of a method to "split up" a brigade. It would be possible to have the elite infantry regiment survive when the MO Brigade got gutted in battle. However, I believe that the other components remain in red in the brigade. That's all I know.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean, but the Missouri Brigade usually [always?] appears in the game not yet fully formed. Shortly thereafter, another brigade or two will appear separately. Together, they form the full Missouri Brigade.

I recall this happening to me once, I think it had something to do with the brigade being locked or somehow being ineligble to receive the new elements, so they (it?) appeared elsewhere.

Yes, I'm pretty sure I remember an extra regiment or 2 appear separately. I think it was just 1 regiment though. But still, one regiment will enhance a whole division. What would you guys suggest I do to find out if this is something that can be controlled or not? Every little bit helps.

You must mean regiment. I don't see how 1 or 2 more brigades form up with the Missouri Brigade to form the Missouri Brigade.

I guess ill wait to see if another regiment appears in my current game. I don't think it will since my Brigade is already fully formed this time. If not then I think collectively we should figure out what the deal is.

One question is whether or not the extra element arrives via script or whether it is filled from the Elite replacements pool because the unit has an empty slot in its TOE.

The Missouri Bde spawns per script missing an element (an elite infantry regiment). The missing regiment spawns per event a turn or so later, possibly in the same location, but not necessarily.

You could combine these two units to satisfy any OCD tendencies, OR since the 'Strong Morale' ability only requires one single element to have the ability for an entire division to enjoy the perks of the ability, you could simply leave the two units separated and add each of them to a different division, thus providing two divisions with the 'Strong Morale' ability perk instead of just one.

And if your OCD won't lest you rest, you can still have the missing element in the Missouri Brigade replaced normally, and still leave the elite single element unit in a division.

But if your OCD is really that bad... :blink: ... go ahead and combine them :(

I would like to ensure that they spit in different places as I would like the buff for a whole other division. But from what I gather its all by chance. Is there any known way to ensure the split?
