Hello there, I have a question regarding the occupation rates in the game.
When first reading up on reconnaissance and occupation times I came across this article, but the problem for me is that it doesn't seem to be correct.
I am midway through a second civil war between USA and CSA (playing as the South), and began capturing a US province just as one of mine started being occupied. I had a total of six regiments of infantry attacking the province, while the US sent a single cuirasser. According to that thread the reconnaissance value is cumulative, so my total value should have been 3r. A single cuirasser has a value of 1.5r.
Our fort levels were the same, and upon checking, both of us had the same technologies, yet the single regiment of cuirassers was conquering my province as about 2-3x the rate.
How is the Occupation Rate actually affected then? Is it by the troop with the largest reconnaissance, or is there another factor that I've missed somewhere?
