Recruiting

Mon Jan 04, 2016 9:28 pm

I am familiar with Civil War 2, but a severe noob with BoA2. Do units just appear over time or do I have a way to recruit them?

There is no proper recruitment like in cw2. Most of units appear by event or are rised and dismissed on certain dates like the miltias.
Still you can do some límited recruitment expending EP to buy options on the ledger that gives you some units. The same applies to replacements.

It feels simple but works wonderfully! WIA is my all time favorite AGEOD game! :)

To add a bit of specificity as to process - Each winter, militia units and Native American war parties go home. In the spring the war parties reappear. New militia are raised twice a year, soon after the new year and June (I believe). These militia are built in proportion to the number of cities you control in each of the four grand regions, New England, Middle States, South and Deep South.
Because the units arsan refers to in the ledger cost EP, (EP are the money, WS and conscripts all rolled into one) you need to maximize how much EP you generate. Using privateers is one method. In general, put at least one in each of the four sea zones. This gains one EP for each sea zone in which you have a raiding ship.

Second arsan's statement about the game, my top game to play.
