About 10 days ago I downloaded the lastest CoG Beta and began playing it constantly. It looks great and I especially like the undo button, which I badly needed when I first bought the game.
There were two things that caught my attention.
1. Playing as France, I like to get corps on loan from defeated enemies to use in fighting the next war of conquest. In this game I used these corps to besiege the next guy's capital. When the next guy surrendered, my loaned corps was moved to friendly territory, just as all friendly corps are normally. In two instances, this occurred on the turn that the loaner was to revert back to its original owner's control. In those cases, the loaner corps dropped all of its component divisions and reassumed it's original flag. The corps was not under French control. The dropped divisions were marked with both of our flags and were under my control. This seemed strange and outside the parameters of the normal game. The corps reverted, but the divisions remained. Both should revert.
2. When an enemy army was surrounded and destroyed by capture, the enemy's generals were left on the map. The poor AI British leaders never crossed the Channel or moved to their home territory and thus were liable to be captured. When they were captured by the French, they were available to be used as leaders. Seeing Wellington in charge of the Reserve Artillery protecting Paris was disconcerting to say the least. The AI should move unattached leaders back to the home country or nearest corps / army. Any captured leaders should be assigned to a POW corps and unavailable for use until released by a surrender.
Forgive me if these have been covered before. I am truly enjoying the game and especially the solitaire aspects.
