"Effective" range of most field pieces was probably very short. If you consider they are on wheels in uneven fields with probably soft soil under them, there is no way that a shot could be repeated accurately. At 500 yards most targets, men and guns, represent something of about 6 foot ver...

I am surprised at the Union lacking artillery ammo. Usually they have enough not to have to worry. Which may be what got him. Didn't realize soon enough how limiting it was. Main thing needed on artillery ammo use is better AI selections than minimum, random, and fire at everything. I would like to...

Having dual commentary with an independent one is a fun way to present an AAR but is time consuming. I did some in the past where each side posted a commentary on their turn but delayed it about 1 or 2 hours so they wouldn't give away anything to the enemy. Having a third person to collect the comme...

They just released their first Skirmish based on Harpers Ferry. It will need some balancing since the Yanks pretty quickly figured out all they needed to do was beat the Rebs to the exit points on the pontoon and railroad bridges then it became Fredericksburg in reverse. This is a "what if"...

They have posted their planned schedule (copy below) but not when Closed Beta will start although it looks like maybe by summer. We are still in Closed Alpha Phase 2.

That a routing unit captures leaders & supply sounds acceptable but that it can capture artillery doesn't make sense, at best if the artillery was limbered and so not ready for combat. More worrying is that routing units not only ignore ZOCs but also enemy units. What is the sense of encircling...

Turn based fire is by unit I believe. I vaguely remember some change regarding stacks but not sure it changed the fire to stacks or not on opportunity(fire triggered by movement) type fire. But from the point of view of odds of making a hit, stack fire is better. It is one of the reasons Turn based ...

Whoever is setting up the multiplayer game has to tell you what scenario is being used and what forces are available, then you can open it in whichever game series it is part of. They pretty much decide how much information you will have on the game. They may also make you wait until the first turn ...

They have been busy the last few months over on War of Rights. They now are testing servers with up to 150 people on them. They have added a number of new Skirmish areas. They have also added a Camera for making user videos which you can see in use in video link below. If you watch shortly into the ...

I'm getting them too, almost daily now. Trying to see if my Outlook settings will block it but may have to block all emails from this domain to stop it.

Jay can you post what type game it is (Phased or Turn based)? And, what options your are using in the game?

AI controlled fire of any kind (phased or Turn) should have more granular settings. More range trigger controls than just minimum, random and maximum for both rifle and artillery. Artillery could have cannister (3 hex), short(<6), medium(<10), full. Rifled weapons should have a max hex setting rathe...

My solution is to capture the battery if its enemy so I can give it a bad facing then plant a big short range battery behind it. Takes a couple of turns to shoot it out of existence. That assumes you have enough ammo which sometimes the Rebel player can't afford to do it.
