Based on feedback about the AI I'm debating whether I'd be better off just going with Wars of Succession or possibly Napoleon's Campaigns rather than WoN.
Aside from possibly following the above suggestion of trying to play 2 sides manually in WoN of course.
All are good games. PON is a fantastic game which has a strong fan base even though its relatively speaking old. But I still have to see another game of such depth and which actually created the right mechanics for such a game.
WOS has the same engine as WoN but somehow works better. AI seems to disperse its forces less but has an achilles heel in that it rarely buys reinforcements. So say a one time intervention per year would be enough to keep the game alive.
Napoleon's Campaigns does not have a long term campaign except for the 'Spanish Ulcer' which is tricky. However, it is well researched and plays decently.
