PBEM combat streamlining

Post by Dancing Bear »

Ok, since I started a thread on PBEM streamlining by skipping naval phases, and condensing land phases during peace turns, but it soon became a discussion on seige combats, lets have a new thread just for PBEM streamlining of combat.

Avoiding battle file exchanges for seige battles seemed to be acceptable to all.

How about allowing more than one battle to be resolved at one time. Why do we have to finish one set of battle file exchanges before starting the next. Often France attacks two or three stacks in a month, currently meaning three sets of battle file exchanges in sequence. Why can't all the battles be done simultaneously?

Perhaps this will create enough time to allow for battle file exchanges for single corps battles (which is my preference).

Dancing Bear:
The combat environment should only be running one battle at a time. The original design was to tackle one battle at a time per the original EiA. The changes required here would be time consuming.
Thank you
