A remake of AGEOD Civil War 2 in their new engine would be sweet. That was their best game. I know Grand Tactician just came out of Early Access but IMO it still can't touch AGEOD CW2.


CW2 has one big problem though. Put *everything* in the east, or you will lose if the other guy does it.


Yea, it's definitely not a perfect game, but I felt it captured the spirit of the war the best. I think for ACW there are board games better than PC games but for a PC game I think it's held up the best.

Oh, I like the game. I never, ever, did that move. But if you don't you will lose. Unless you find a like minded opponent.

Wars of Napoleon, that's another game I had a very bad experience playing with other people. There's an AAR I did of it.

WoN is a broken and abandoned game, and It should be withdrawn from sale anywhere.

I agree with this. I think the last 4-5 AGEOD games in the old engine were pretty weak compared to the earlier ones.

Old engine was very difficult to programme and to work with. Fan devs also did make games but have difficulties. ACW did see many patches thanks to its community in Americas.
WoN was an ambitious project and 7 days a turn was too much. I've played with 7 players pbem before it was released.

On the other hand Wars of Succeession was good. Great Northern War between Sweden and Rus was interesting to me but not this community perhaps. Conclusion: community work flourish games. It is either American or JAP market in these times...

How can you refuse anyone named "The Great"?

It is very easy. Just ask the Polish people what they thought of Catherine the Great . . .

One of those came to the United States to train some cavalry there . . .

Both Charles and Peter were great leaders of their time. From my beta play test pbems (I've re-started many times both in Wars in Succession and Great Northern War scenario) Swedes were a bit strong about Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. In the game there was little time to upgrade Streltsy militia. There is also Rus&Ottoman phase in Prut river campaign(1710-11) that could end Peter's reforms (not implemented in game). Again if it was about ACW it would have more commnunity help. It would be a great game. But still very glad Ageod did make a game about it.

Crown of glory is great, as is Forge of Freedom but one thing I really like with FOG 2 is there field battles (I am hoping sieges come in Medieval at some point) but it's easy to get into FOG 2. I would like a map in FOG 2 (Empires helped) but I still enjoy the campaigns and stuff because it's just nice and easy. My thought was how you do the 15 battle Campaigns maybe have similar long Campaigns with Napoleonic Nation's.

I like the Ageod "Napoleon's Campaigns" - in fact I started the 1814 battle for France scenario last night.

This game was disliked by the community because it didn't have a "grand campaign" but Napoleon's series of wars are easily separable. Indeed the Encyclopedia Britannica treats them as such.

I agree, one of my favorite Ageod games in spite of the Russian campaign being a mess. I have a Spanish ulcer campaign going I need to get back to

Tuna river (or as called "Danube river" for the most known) are used to deploy artillery for Ottomans historically in Balkans with "Kadırga"(rowing ships), similar to French use Rhine river to transport big artillery in War in Succession. And most of the forts were mostly correct about Ottomans positioned in swamps in defensive positioning.

I can understand "Napoleon's Campaigns" easy to play and a smaller game more balanced for a light Napoleonic game. Good to see Ageod have at least tried in Wars of Napoleon.
