All corps in the same army can automatically march "to the sound of the guns". The only condition is that they must NOT be in "inactive" mode (the green mode).
You can make sure your armies move exactly at the same speed by checking the special move whose name I forget with the "two arrows". If the Commander-in-Chief has the icon checked, all units following the same path AND having the icon checked will move with him - so they will go at the speed of the slowest.
Be wary with using this icons - quite often you drag a unit without wanting it, thrasing your battle plans.
I managed that once in the Saxony training scenario, was convinced I'd finally worked out how to win and the whole Prussian army wandered off ... so far have been very cautious about using it.
Interesting AAR loki100. This "No move if unactivated" is going to be a pain in the ***. I used it once, lost an entire column due to lack of suplies and never used it again.
glad its enjoyable to follow. I actually like it the effect. It makes manouvering my large armies really difficult & certainly makes me cautious about ambitious (or complex) moves. I can easily see this game going the distance (unless I manage to lose) principally due to this. I sort of like the level of frustration it brings on.
Karlkrona is the most important Western port of Sweden (the other on the East being Göteborg, not in game - two ports were needed so Sweden doesn't pay the Sund toll). It is on the other side of the sea - the Prussians actually landed in Sweden. First time I see that. Good luck to go help Karlskrona.
Karlskrona is on the east and Göteborg in the west, alas
Indeed. Mistook East and West
reminds me of a time many years ago when I went to Australia and forgot a simple fundamental difference to how you navigate in NW Europe ...
James Keith? Woop! One of our nation's ultimate badasses!
thats the boy, he's also a really scarily good general. Usually if you play the Prussians he just ends up operating with Freddie so you don't often see him let out on his own. Anyway he's not the only really bad boy on the Prussian side, in the next post we get to meet the butcher of Culloden himself ... One can only hope they don't actually end up in the same army at the same time ...
