Does anybody feel like the third day scenarios are slanted towards the Confederacy? Even when playing against "Risky" AI and absolutely crushing the confederates in the first 2 days in terms of casualties (like ~24,000 to ~12,000 in my favor) I still struggle to repel the rebels on the third day. The defensive line along the stone wall doesn't seem to do much considering how monstrous the confederate artillery is. I have tried staying put and hunkering down as well as counter attacking but the sheer number of rebel guns can shred entire corps. I would have thought that after out fighting the rebels by the third day they would be in worse shape than in the real battle but Pickett's charge is often successful which seems like an issue. It also seems like the game places union guns in horrible positions, either way out in front of the line or way behind the ridge forcing you to reposition them. Meanwhile the confederate canons which are lined up perfectly along the ridge, can fire 4 volleys before my guns are even set up. Am I just really bad or is there something to this? I feel like this should be easier, anybody have any tips for a total noob?
