I have questions!!!

- Melee across a hexside or into a hex that would cause Disorder results in the same Melee penalty as if the unit was Disordered.

WOAH.  This is a thing.  Eventually ported to all games?

- Units defending in Melee fire at 100% fire.

This is only for games played without MDF, correct?

- No Detached Melee optional rule introduced.

"No" or "New"?

- Movement Threat Disorder optional rule introduced.

Lost that fight...

- Added button to return to Default on the Optional Rules Dialog.

I don't know what this is.

Curious to see how this looks, but I never really DIDN'T like the other one.

- Added 11 new 2D icons to more easily differentiate unit types at a glance.

Oooooooh.

Please explain?  I hate VP levels determined by baggage hunting...

- Changed the way Division Colors display on the counters.

Cool.

- PDT changes:

Fascinating.  Doug will be VERY pleased.

Changed probability of ammo loss for all nations

Up or down?

Correct

"No" or "New"?

A unit can not melee if detached from it's commanding officer, so - No Detached Melee

- Movement Threat Disorder optional rule introduced.

It's an optional rule...   8)

If you loose supply points to ranged fire, or melee, they will count against you. Been in the series a while, but added after Waterloo was released, so I retro-fitted it with this update.

Yep, the very first thing that jumped out at me. All of these are great. I look forward to seeing them across the series!


I actually don't really like games.
