Re: The Great Rebellion Campaign

I am sorry to report that Parliament suffered losses in both the Mid-West (66/53) and Anglia (45/16). Congratulations to ironclad.

Prithee may I suggest I be given something more modest to protect, like perhaps the Outer Hebrides?

Re: Storming of Bristol

Right - looks like I *did* misread the victory conditions.

Will try attacking to the right and see how that goes.

Climbing over our walls *does* seem counter-intuitive, but so be it!

Re: The Great Rebellion Campaign

I'm glad the designer of the game is on my side.

I doubt the gratitude is mutual ;).

Re: Storming of Bristol

Ah. Have I misread the victory conditions then? I assumed I was aiming for the usual +25% or flat "opposition at 60%". I could swear that's what the conditiond say, but I've been wrong before!

If the thresholds are "hidden", could you spill the beans? By PM if necessary!

Storming of Bristol

This one hasn't quite reached Lutter levels of frustration for me yet, but I can see it has the potential to get there! I've tried a number of different approaches, but I think what advice I'm looking for boils down to "is the secret to get behind the Heavy Fortifications eventually, and if so at wh...

Re: The Great Rebellion Campaign

Two challenges up for Ironclad:

1) Great Rebellion - Anglia
2) Great Rebellion - Mid West

...password for both is "ironclad".

Re: Battle of White Mountain

I'm afraid it's a little too long ago for me to properly recall. I don't think we fell back - I vaguely recall a soft crumple on our left flank and fighting tooth and nail from within the Palace walls. Before that we just tried to hold the front hill as long as possible using the infantry.

Could I request that you skip me when it's time for me to be CiC? I think there are many better qualified than I!

Re: The Great Rebellion Campaign

For the next turn it might be wise to set a deadline of "battles to be finished within seven days" or some such.

Re: Bleedin' Nantwich

Mysterious!

Once I've worked my way up to and beyond Nantwich I'll report back and see if that fixes it.

Bleedin' Nantwich

In "Historical" mode I have completed all of the Thirty Years War battles and have moved onto the ECW. I've won the first *two* ECW battles However, whenever I choose the ECW campaign , the game tries to start me on (ie. scrolls forward to) Nantwich. During the TYW it would default to whichever batt...

Re: The Great Rebellion Campaign

How many results are we away from "Late 1642" ie. turn 2?

I'm chomping at the proverbial.

Re: The Great Rebellion Campaign

Having lost North Wales in an embarrassing rout I am pleased to report to the Parliamentarian staff that South Wales held 53/63. A damned close run thing, aided mostly by the Cavaliers leaving the field of battle to loot the baggage train.

I don't think that's wholly true. Keyth battered me in North Wales, and he definitely charged first ;).
