    Cavalry is in a good spot right now

    First on, you know the F key orders a fallback move of your unit, meaning pressing it several time lets units in close combat leave said engagements and gives you back control. It also gives you the option to retreat units without exposing your back, as units in a fallback move don't count as being shot in rear. I also quite like how the cav situation is right now, especially as it is historically fitting. Neither side ever had really good close combat or charge cavalry, because they lacked the trained horses AND riders for that. But both sides heavily utilized cav as mounted light infantry, which had a huge impact in quite some battles like Gettysburg, where Buffords cavalry held off Lees forces long enough (with the help of some serious errors on the CSA side) for the Union to occupy the highly advantageous terrain. This most likely won the battle. And in the game you are absolutely capable of doing exactly the same, I certainly did so once (just for fun) with my 3- and 2-star-skirmcav concentrated in one division at Gettysburg, digging in and holding of repeated charges by the rebels.^^ With Sharps Carbines and Spencers they are devastating...

    Historical accuracy of the game

    Finished the video. Thanks for the help guys!

    Historical accuracy of the game

    Just saying, the script is mostly done, thank you all very very much for your insight. You might find a few things you mentioned in this thread in the video that will hopefully be released in a few days.

    Confederate Legendary Campaign

    Yupp, expend your AI allies to the max in the early battles, not only does that mean less losses for your forces, it also means more weapons for you to salvage after the batte.

    Stay Alert, no reinforcements coming... 1.10/11 WTF!?

    Thank you. She even went to Tankfest with me this year, which is a 30 hour ride/sail from Hannover in Germany, I have no idea why a nerd like me got so lucky...probably because she is just as nerdy. She even plays video games, though more adventures, and loves Star Wars, Stark Trek and Game of Thrones. As a thank-you gift she is now off for the weekend with her BFF to the M'era Luna festival, bought her the cards as a present and planned everything. xD Four days off without kids watching her favourite bands...while I am able to play as much on the PC as I want because the kids are staying overnight at their friends and grandmas, win-win.^^

    Sorry, was busy celebrating my tenth wedding anniversary. Haven't played the rebels in a while, I will give it a try in a week or so when I am done with Silent Hunter 5. Thankfully I have time now after the Battfleet Gothic: Armada 2 closed beta ended. BTW, the let's play stuff is more for relaxing.

    Same. Cavalry bug was the only thing that got on my nerves, but that one got fixed. And with the last hotfix they ironed out the ammunition veteran skill bug. I don't see any bugs at all left. I am usually not very friendly with dumb devs, got kicked from Paradoxs list of people who get their hands on the games and DLCs early because I told people openly that HoI4 sucks and the DLCs are shit. So yeah...I think you, Mr. Percon, just suck at the game and blame it on bugs.

    BTW Nick is a pretty regular sight in the forum. And this game has been one of the best supported indy games I have ever seen, and I say this as someone who has participated in quite some betas (and even an alpha), I have seen my share of poorly developed and even worse supported games, and this is definitely not one of them.

    How do you decide to buy a game

    In most cases I use gameplay videos by certain youtubers, reviews on Steam (UGCW was actually the first game I wrote one for xD) and the experience of my friends with the game. I really love any game that gives you a demo, so you could check it yourself. In the old days when Youtube wasn't a thing yet and demos just had gone extinct I actually once downloaded a game illegaly to test how it played. That game was Empire: Total War, and I bought it half a year later when at least some of the bugs were fixed. And thanks to Nick I was actually able to enjoy it. xD I have bought games spot on before release...for example Rome 2 (will never buy a TW title again pre-release) or Battlefleet Gothic: Armada (because I am a 40k fan). But that only happens rarely and if I know the devs behind it are really, really good (yeah, CA, that one goes in your direction, Shogun 2 was great but you f*cked R2 up!). That means I will happily buy anything Game-Labs is churning out. xD

    Can't Play game

    Could you post your system specs, including your OS?

    Another game is stealing your game play

    I actually love the Warhammer Fantasy setting, not only am I a fan of Warhammer (and 40k), but the game is far more fun to play than any historical title they released since Shogun 2. As some of this team are now working on Three Kingdoms I have hopes this title could be ok...but these hopes aren't too great. And don't mention Thrones of Britannia...this game is crap.

    Another game is stealing your game play

    He, last time I saw their ads they used Empire: Total War screenshots. xD So, apparently UGCW is now where it belongs: On one level with Total War. 🤣 Edit: Just to make it clear, UGCW IS on one level with TW, or at least Sega and CA should see it as serious competition for the future. Was about time they get some...

    Hjalfnar fighting for the Union! (major general)

    Thank you! Yeah, naming the brigades the way my viewers want them to be named is pretty nice, I do that in my (at this time pausing) Panzer Corps LP, too. For example "Retterlings Raiders" were named after my viewer Hutz aka Retterling, an ex German army recon tank platoon commander. xD In my Panzer Corps LP he is "commanding" my sole recon unit. And the "Klinks Loyal Western Virginian Mounted Rangers" were named by my viewer German Klink, who is right now living in Western Virgina. He is a civil war reenactor btw...but for the rebels, I fear.^^ If you want to "command" a brigade, just post a comment here or on Youtube which one you would like and of course tell me the name. On the agressiveness...yes, that surprised me quite a bit, the last time I played this battle the AI held her position and gave me lots of trouble doing so. But this time, I have no idea why they attacked so fiercely.

    Work in progress: Dreadnoughts

    How did I miss this?! I might have to change my profile pic to that of Admiral von Scharnhorst now, dammit! Incredible excited! Jutland and Rule the Waves both are great, but the presentation and UI is horrible and kept from really playing those. Can't wait for this game, I have waited for a good age of steel game for...well...ages. xD

    Hjalfnar fighting for the Union! (major general)

    I decided to stop doing videos on the smaller battles, as this takes the fun out of the game for me for some reason. So enjoy a cut directly to the extremely bloody Battle of Antietam today!
