BETA 1.07 IS OUT

>1.07 is a smaller patch, mostly focussing on fixes, rebalancing and battle AI. We will further work on this patch the next days. Every feedback is welcome!
>>
Campaigns:

- (sea/river) filter for ship construction list now including mixed movement instead of filtering it out (1.0700)
- fixed: unit strength may rise above regular strength near hospitals (1.0700)
- fixed: autoresolve battles sometimes take too long, although the victory conditions are met (1.0700)
- fixed: autoresolve panel shows negative casualties if number of recovered soldiers is bigger than new casualties (1.0700)
- fixed: rating is floored by project and policy effects though debt load is huge (1.0700)
- added workaround: newly created units without attached brigades sometimes are jumping outside the map and causing exceptions (1.0700)
- rebalanced: lower regain of readiness, lower aggressiveness for defensive movements (1.0700)
- trade projects now also influence pricing of imports, not only traffic (1.0700)
- supply depots close to frontline now do not change ownership if nearby units are still engaged (1.0700)
- AI defensive movements now try to cut off supply more often (1.0700)
- fixed: transfering all units out of a group does not remove this empty group after closing military management (1.0700)

Battles:

- AI: AI groups that were stopped by advance guards now do not chase and run into player’s lines anymore but wait and reform (1.0700)
- AI: artillery stops farther behind the line when touching enemy (1.0700)
- measures against stuck mounting cavalry (1.0700)
- artillery units moved to center of single line formations, cavalry to flanks (1.0700)
- added: AI assault move on isolated groups

What does the game play like? How grognardy is it?

Adding a few of drops of cream to a barrel of shit does not improve the flavor.

Well I see you discerning Gentlemen of high intellectual value have succeeded brilliantly in devaluing the value of OP's thread to pure and unadulterated gibberish. To be quite frank, it serves OP right for peddling his steaming pile of afterbirth on this fine forum.
So please excuse my interruption to your highly gifted discourse. Please return to your exchanges of sophisticated eloquence.

Can I pee in your mouth?

>To be quite frank, it serves OP right for peddling his steaming pile of afterbirth on this fine forum
He didn't even answer my actual question about the game
>>
>>1101925
Do the latest updates add army templates yet? I haven't played in a while, but when I tried and saw you had to design your armies from scratch I gave up. It's like you have to be an expert in history just to build your armies correctly.
>>
>>1103567
Paradox games and their consequences have been a disaster for humanity
>>
>>1103567
There's only 3 unit types. Infantry, artillery and cavalry. You could go for a realistic Civil War army and have it be mostly just infantry and artillery with a Battalion of cav for scouting, or you could fully embrace Napoleon and go with a shitload of cavalry. It literally does not matter what state you recruit from or what uniform you assign to them.
>>
>>1103567
how are you this retarded. you fucking click recruit infantry artillery or cavalry. experiment. learn by doing.
>It's like you have to be an expert in history just to build your armies correctly.
holy shit you are an idiot
>>
>>1101925
This game sucks
>>
>>1103631
Its sucks like your mother. Bretty gud actual. Was cash.
>>
>>1103647
You have to be a low-IQ nigger to enjoy this game against this retarded AI.
>>
>>1103567
I feel you. Personally I like it when you have to take history as an example, but if you don't wanna do that, it's hard to figure out what you need to change to make your army more efficient

Like your father.

It's actually hilarious how seething you are over this game. Seek help faggot

How did a civil war strategy game attract such an autistic sperg?
>>
>>1103797
yea whenever this game gets brought up there is usually that one guy wih a very distinct posting style saying the game sucks
very odd
>>
>>1103674
Holy shit, stop trying to find a meta in everything you ADHD riddled zoomer.
>>
>>1103937
I'm 31. And where did I talk about meta? Do you think real generals never tried to make their armies work better?
>>
>>1103942
>I'm 31
>Still on 4chan
wow...
>>
>>1102077
WOW! A long list of fixes and improvements!
Just like the previous long list of fixes and improvements which did jack shit!
Cant wait to buy this buggy mess!
Please suck me off now.
>>
>>1103935
You mean this guy?
>>1103631
Yes. A very distinct posting style. Never seen anything like that before.
>>
>>1104005
kek, wonder why you are so butthurt about someone pointing out that some retarded autist always posts how bad the game is
>>
>>1104005
no, surprisingly he hasnt shown up yet, or at least hasnt posted his wall of text about much smarter he is than everyone for not liking the game.
>>
>>1101925
When I pirated it I thought it was a finished product. It certainly looks like one of those shitty "grand strategy" games from 2010s.
Where are my machineguns? Why does so much stuff suck penis? Why does Confederacy get Virginia even if they don't have the "Old Dominion" thing selected?
I wish it was the same game but literally anywhere else, buying guns and equipping your units seems cool.
>>
>>1104054
Machine guns weren't invented yet in the Civil War
inb4 gatling, that's not a machine gun
>>
>>1104064
1) I don't give a shit.
2) I don't believe Dreyse guns were purchased either and the game lets you do that if you suck Europenis hard enough.
So pick your poison https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_gun#19th_century and give me meme guns. Just make shit up, it's not like the US Civil War is real history anyway.
3) But also yes, where's the fucking Gatling and Agar and the shitty organ guns too?
>>
>>1101925
OP you are a social manager of the dev team, you are literally credited in the credits. No one cares about your shitty broken game no matter how much you will shill it here.
>>
>>1104016
Not butt hurt at all, on the contrary I enjoy laughing at your antics. Its like watching chimps having a howling match.

Gentlemen. Please. Let us put this unseemly squabbling aside and just focus on what is really important. For are we not Men? No. We are Devo.

I'm not the one autistically screeching about shills. I bet you're the only person in America not allowed a gun. I'll see you in the next thread faggot.

Lol, you still crying. You forgot you also got called out for being an asswipe and moron, you moronic asswipe. Have another little cry

This is one of the most broken games I've ever played.
Combat is where the real issues are found. The AI thinks nothing of marching straight at you, even if that means through a chokepoint covered by multiple gun batteries and brigades with a suicidal abandon I haven't seen since Empire: Total War. This also applies to naval combat with Confederate fleets throwing themselves at the Union and getting themselves utterly wiped out.

Artillery has a mind of its own, sometimes possessing great range despite the display saying it doesn't, other times refusing to fire even at point blank. Batteries must never be ordered to attack, otherwise they'll reposition themselves and march straight into the enemy army to do it.

Cavalry is useless. While this may be close to historical reality given the setting, it's extremely frustrating when you want to scout and the scout detachment refuses to go more than eight feet from its parent brigade which happens nine times out of ten. In the event of a cavalry charge, your horsemen will engage a broken, fleeing unit... And promptly panic and break themselves for no apparent reason.

This applies also to infantry. An infantry unit that outnumbers an enemy brigade four to one, that has high morale while the enemy has been shot to pieces and is wavering, will suddenly panic and flee once you send them in to rout the enemy with a bayonet charge. Experience has nothing to do it with either as I've discovered; a completely inexperienced unit is just as likely to rout in this situation as a four star unit.

This is even more true during retreats. You will likely lose more men during a pursuit than the actual battle as retreating units suddenly gain laser-precision, gunning down pursuing units by the dozen while still fleeing. Attempts to engage the enemy in melee and take prisoners once again result in your units breaking and fleeing.

>>1107367
Which patch did you last play on, Anon? I feel like the last few updates helped the AI out significantly.
>>
>>1107471
Fucking shill. Go shill your game somewhere else

>Getting called a moronic asswipe on the internet
lmao

You are all retards.

You would think that because you are a fucking idiot who has trouble beating the clueless AI.
>>
>>1102086
Kind of like HOI3 with UGCW or older total war battles. Got it yesterday and it’s kind of a mess but still pretty enjoyable, if they keep updating it it will be goated
>>
>>1109234
I love UGCW. Will check it out sometime
>>
>>1109234
Fucking shill, we're not interested in your game
>>
>>1109249
Well boys, we done a grand job shitting on this piece of shit thread about a shit game. Let's wait until next month when useless OP remakes another totally useless thread and we we can shit all over that too!
>>
>>1109452
>Let's shit on one of the few game threads on this board that isn't Paradox
We did it reddit, no to shills
>>
>>1109485
>lets shill a shit game with zero actual discussion of the game!
Protip. Its hard to describe a shit game other than calling it shit.
See >>1107367
>>
I love strategy games, Total war, CK2 & Hearts of Iron, most of my games are strategy games, BUT HOLY FUCK this game is a mess.
Unless you are willing to read a novel to learn how to operate the UI don't bother.
They literally spent a section on how to adjust setting?
How many people don't know how to hit ESC and adjust rez or UI scail.
They are making a game that is SOOO overly complicated it's not funny.
UI is unmovable for the most part and esc doesn't back you out, so when a window opens and the UI you need to click is blocked by another part of the UI you FUCKED and have to exit game and relaunch.
and then we have a broken scroll feature, every time you use a mouse button to scroll it jumps right back to where you started when you release the button.

Go home ESL.

But I haven't finished fucking your mother yet. I waited long enough in the line.
>>
>>1110169
I hate to tell you this anon, but we share the same mother.
>>
>>1110204
Then its a good thing I saved your place in the line.
>>
>>1110261
Wanna tag team?
>>
daily reminder that this is all because he got banned from their unofficial discord for saying nigger
>>
>>1110484
Not entirely correct. I got banned because I pimped OP's mother. That was months ago. Some say the train is still running.
