    CSA Career Points help needed

    Hi, I definitely get it. Re destroying as much of the enemy as possible. I used your advice when winning the Campaign on BG as the CSA. Now using it, playing as the Union. On BG. Thanks for the advice. It works 👍

    TOTAL VICTORY TO THE CSA !

    Hi, Thank you. Must admit I am enjoying playing the Union. I will shortly be starting the Battle of Fredericksburg. Really interesting the difference in Barracks from playing the CSA. Number of troops not a problem of course. But arming them is ! So far I have maxed out on Economy. Also training. Now working up on politics. Plus making sure I can field 3 Corps. As yet I have not bothered with medicine . My attitude has been. It’s ok. Plenty more troops available ! I do have quality Brigades. I try to ensure they are armed with the latest weapons. But I am still fielding raw recruits armed with Farmers. They tend to be the ‘cannon fodder’. Having my best and well armed troops behind them. I have used some career points to buy better weapons. I have recently been awarded the Iron Brigade. However, I’m not sure about overly increasing their number as Veterans. Too expensive ! I have played all the battles and remain undefeated. Still looking to hammer the Rebs every time. As I did to the Union when playing as the Rebs. To keep their numbers down. Looking forward now to preparing my Army for Fredericksburg. Really enjoying the different approach to the one used when playing as the CSA. I am finding it amusing after each battle. When played playing as the CSA I looked forward with anticipation to what weapons I had captured after a battle. Now as the Union, its a bit of a let down. The weapons I am capturing are poor quality and tend to be issued to my new recruits ! Throughly enjoying it. Best wishes.

    I started playing UG back in April in this year on Apple iMac. It is the best ACW game out there. To win you have to be as good in the Barracks as a General in a battle or Campaign. It is very addictive. Good graphics and very well thought out. A few unexpected surprises along the way. Makes it even better! But don’t necessarily expect to win a Campaign at the first attempt. The Barrack’s side of the game is very important. If you don’t get it right you will find the Campaign impossible to win. The time spent in the Barracks will pay off when on the battlefield. As I say it’s the best ACW game. All credit to those involved in its development.

    I know the advice given to me. Which I kept to was to keep heating the Union troops with a big stick. I looked to do that in every battle. Minor or major. I just kept going for them.

    I did concentrate on the money side of things first. Only increased the AO when was going to be required. Also, if I did have a lack of money. I was happy to take a brigade with very high morale etc. Change it to rookie when replenishing losses. The morale etc only went down a small amount. But helpe to save on outlay. I only know that the above did help me to win the war. Sorry for the double quote above. 🙃. Regards

    Also, as I progressed I checked the weapons I had in stock. If never going to use. Then I sold them. This was especially useful before Washington I sold absolutely everything I was not going to need in order to use on what I felt was needed.

    I felt the unit restore of 20% was worth having

    TOTAL VICTORY TO THE CSA !

    Hi, Thank you. Yes will be starting a Union campaign. Looking forward to seeing how it differs when in barracks. Pleased to hear the size of my army is almost the same as yours. I didn’t have any cavalry. I decided to concentrate on my infantry. Backed up by the most guns I have used in the campaign. I had a brigade ( down to approx 800 men) that was only armed with farmers. In the 2nd phase of Washington they held the defences directly in front of Washington. Three Union brigades attack them. Every hand to hand was repulsed. They held for the entire 2nd phase. Most impressed with them. Plus other brigades which held their ground.

    TOTAL VICTORY TO THE CSA !

    It did take me 2 attempts at the Battle of Washington ! Thought I had won (no doubt so have many others). Only for it to go into a second day ! The UG makers are a sadistic bunch 😳. Should have known wouldn’t be that easy to win the whole campaign in a single one day battle. Nice twist. Though not the first thought that came to my mind 😉. But after some thought managed to work it out. Looking forward to trying to show the USA how to win now. Great game ! 👏👏👏👏👏 The UG people are brilliant. Thanks for providing so much entertainment.
