Surprisingly, I have just came across this game recently and watched some youtube videos for research purposes and decided to buy the game when it went on sale. And to my surprise it went on sale today.....now begins the learning curve of this game. Purchased the digital and boxed (to be shipped). Let the games begin!!!

For "scope" this is the biggest one and for this price a "no brainer"...War In The West/East also must be pretty huge...

.. for other games I liked the AGEOD system, even if a bit outdated by now and totally different to AE. Not sure if these games are also on sale. And you can get also some games "for free" (more no brainers) especially Steel Panthers.

Edit, here a review of the WW1 game "To End All Wars" I would like to try it, as I found the American Civil War games quite good already:

Look at the nice map and the nicer unit/commanders pics

Well can’t pass it up at this price. I hopefully retire in about 31 months so maybe by then I’ll have it figured out enough to play

I will never understand why they don't sell this game on Steam like they do GG WITE and WITW. This game has such a great following and I would think would sell as well as those games do?

Bad news, even veterans playing it for years have it not figured out 100%

I read that. I found this bit highly amusing:

Unfortunately turns can take a hell of a long time to resolve, which can make the medium to latter stages of the game a frustratingly slow experience. It's not uncommon to have to wait a minute or two for each turn resolution.

I'm also a big fan of Distant Worlds: Universe, Idaho. If you're a fan of space games or 4x games give it a look. It's also on sale for $15.

THIS is the best part of the review, while reading it I thought what 10 minutes or what? Then he says 1-2 minutes I need to continue my game in AGEODs Civil War2 which I bought half a year ago in a sale from another site. I mean this is somewhat smaller in scale then the whole Europe in WW1 but the waiting times there are ok.Also the AI is (with limits) among the better ones in strategy games. Sometimes it can surprise you and doing ok supplying and massing it´s troops. Annoyingly does a lot of raiding which is mostly cav being not esay to catch or contain.

It crahsed twice for me, but there was a fix found on the forum. However after so long time such a fix should be in a patch. That fix makes it run stable like SPWAW and WITPAE. Because I read from crashes in the Napoleon and WW1 game. One can hope that also an easy fix or patch exists making these also run stable like ACW2.

Well I have not the fastest PC (most parts being from 2010 or so) but it is good enough to run such "older" games better perhaps then brandnew PCs when it may go TOO FAST or does not run at all... even SPWAW (with the enhanced update that has a Win7 fix) runs fine on my PC.

And btw. there are a bunch of good games on sale quite cheaply...

Price in this case is not a problem (with some games costing only ca. 10€!) but time playing these games, with 1 PBM and 1 AI of AE I can barely manage.

any interesting new game out there?

I haven't buy anything in ~1 year; it might be a good idea to get something on sale

Distant Worlds has been on my hard drive for a while - I'm a fan, just haven't played it recently. That's the problem, I do own a good bit of Matrix titles....and usually focus most of my gaming time to my WiTP PBEM.

But I'm still looking for another title to get! Perhaps I'll look at some older titles I passed by - Scourge of War Waterloo has an appeal. So does Grigsby's Eagle Day Bombing the Reich, which I've thought about getting every Holiday sale. And last, Flashpoint Campaigns Red Storm is another one I've thought about, but never pulled the trigger on. Decisions....decisions....
