Sorry I was a bit busy this work week.

Sunday's battle was great fun for me! I was happy that my redoing my home network stopped me from getting dropped in the game. The week before I got dropped 3 times.....

I found that the confusing orders (the accidental division re-deployment) added to the realism. Though I was not too active at the start, I had fun learning, sending out scouts and then being drawn into the battle as need. BUT for me it was the anticipation! Are the Prussians going to come crashing on my flank, etc?

I will toss out there a couple of things: I am not expecting to have action all the time nor do I need to be in the thick of the fighting all the time. Also, I do not have an issue commanding cavalry which might require scouting or risk getting eliminated early from the game. Just another learning experience.

Thanks,
Tom

Glad you enjoyed it Tom. You did well. You and Taff are welcome to be my brigade commanders again any time.
