So, I have been playing PBEM and it's been fun. But it also has not been fun.
1. Build times - if it says 60 days, then make it 60 days. I had ships say they would be ready in 360 days, that was in 1914 and we are in 1916.
2. Movement - if it tells you 8 days, or 20 or whatever, why is it that you aren't there in the timeframe? I have seen plotted moves that say 20 days take 4 turns. Makes no sense. Also, traffic penalty in the Age of Total War? Seems so out of place in this game. In a 19th century or earlier wargame, yes, but here, no. just no.
3. Combat results - 160 Arab Camel Riders wiped out a garrison of 6,000. Some battles I have seen 0 casualties for one of the combatants and some casualties for the others. Just seem inconsistent
4. Why if I attack territory A, does the defenders in A and B take part in the battle. Marching to the sound of battle? Not here in this type of warfare
I really like the game overall. Don't let the above fool you. Having said that, these types of things do impact my overall enjoyment of the game.
