Re: 1914 Campaign: Slick vs. the Privileged AI

Hoch! Hoch! Hoch! Germany, fulfilling her promises of the "blank check" that she offered to Conrad, has declared war on the Entente allies and joins Austria-Hungary in the war. http://i1239.photobucket.com/albums/ff505/SlickWilhelm/Commander%20The%20Great%20War/AAR/Germany_DoW.jpg And as expected, t...

Re: 1914 Campaign: Slick vs. the Privileged AI

One question, do units accumulate experience through combat, and lose experience with replacements? No, in CTGW the units don't accumulate experience through their ordeals in combat. Instead, they accrue additional skills and abilities via being "upgraded". Upgrading a unit adds the latest technolo...

Re: Campaign 1917 AAR

Excellent start, hadberz. This shows everyone how busy things get in the later war years. Can't wait to see how it plays out for you! :)

Re: 1914 Campaign: Slick vs. the Privileged AI

The AI attacks my Garrison unit in Sarajevo, and inflicts -1 damage to my garrison. Notice the smoke billowing up from Sarajevo, and the solid red arrow that shows us which direction the attack came from. I had to be quick on the keyboard to grab this screenshot, which was accomplished by the keystr...

Re: 1914 Campaign: Slick vs. the Privileged AI

I forgot to finish my turn the last time, so before I let the AI have its fun, I'm going to show you how to produce units. It's very easy. Before I took this pic below, I simply clicked on the PRODUCTION tab on the user interface. In the production panel, every unit that's displayed on the right is ...

Re: 1914 Campaign: Slick vs. the Privileged AI

Thank you, avoran, that's very kind of you. I realized this morning that I didn't cover producing units, which is something I do every turn(if I have the PP) after I move my units. So, the next post will start off with me beginning to build an A-H Infantry unit. They cost 20PP, and since I start the...

Re: 1914 Campaign: Slick vs. the Privileged AI

Just a small correction: High Defense- Defensive value used when in combat with a unit of a different type(e.g. Infantry vs. Cavalry) When it talks about a different type, it means (for example) Air Vs Land. Infantry and Cavalry both count as 'Land' attacks. Thanks, Myrddraal! Fixed. I'm sure this ...

Re: 1914 Campaign: Slick vs. the Privileged AI

As Commander of the Central Powers, I will start the war with Austria-Hungary trying to subdue the impudent Serbs. As time goes on, the other powers will get dragged into the war. In the pic below, I'm faced with a real dilemma. Most of my units are in southern Austria, near the Serbian border. In t...

Re: 1914 Campaign: Slick vs. the Privileged AI

Before we do any real fighting, let's talk a little about the main user interface, shown below. PP - Production Points are the currency and lifeblood of CTGW. You will use PP for building units, producing more ammo, building more research labs, etc. To do almost anything in CTGW, it costs PP. MP - M...

My posts aren't showing up in the CTGW beta test forum

I keep getting a message after submitting a reply that says a moderator needs to approve my post before it will display on the forum. I think something is messed up with permissions on that forum. On a positive note, you all get a break from listening to my rants and raves until it's fixed! :mrgreen:

Couldn't agree more. I would rather wait another year and receive a polished, bug-freeish game. I'm really looking forward to it.

It just means you got registered. As far as I know there will be several beta stages. Even if you didn't enter in the first stages it doesn't mean that you don't enter later. I for PzC was only choosen almost in the end. It's random. You'll get an email with instructions when you are choosen for be...

I just agreed to the NDA and registered to be a beta tester for CTGW. Does that mean that I've been accepted as a beta tester, or only that I've "applied" to be a beta tester? Also, should I be receiving an email sometime in the near future about my beta tester registration? I registered about an ho...

Are the dev diaries kaput?

I read that there was a plan to release a dev diary on a monthly basis. But that seemed to fall by the wayside after the 3rd one.

I find these fascinating, and I'd like to see them continue. 8)
