Gettysburg Let-Down

Recommended Posts

So I was playing Gettysburg as CSA and it just ended... in 1 day.  I captured all the points and routed the enemy, but I never saw more than 25,000 of them.  I was expecting a 3 day slugfest!

Not so much a let-down as an avoidance of massive casualties for yourself.  If you really do want a 3-day slugfest assaulting Union fortifications, just don't capture Cemetery Hill and you'll have one heck of a time trying to capture Culp's Hill and Little Round Top afterwards.

Maybe that's so.  I only took 5000 casualties and inflicted 15000 on the enemy.  For once, I got more recruits than I lost in battle so I can start my 4th corps now.

Whenever I did Gettysburg day 2 I took the hills with no problem I just couldn't hold them, the causality ratio had to be over 1:4 yet they just flooded me with troops and I lost the battle

It's hard to explain, my unit composition was very good.  I came in with two very strong corps and I basically cornered the Union Army at the lower right edge of the map and pounded them into submission.  I took 5000 casualties by the end of the day.  I may try to find a saved-game from that time period and replay it and record it for you to see how I did it.

would be very nice :)

I wiped the Union completely on Salems Church and Brandy Station, 5k casualties on day1 getty would be nice. i would try not to take the last VP on day 1 cause day2 is a very easy one imho.
