    I have the Anthology and play Armageddon regularly, for it is the only thing on my computer! I find the AI quite stupid!

    I don't have Armageddon, so cannot comment on that. I have only had HoI2DD for a couple weeks and am concentrating playing Germany in 1936. My current game, the Idiot French keep DoW'ing me!

    I would love too see the military alliance thing fixed. Way it is now, if France decides too attack me, then all her allies will too, even though it was my understanding that the treaty called for a united war against Germany, provided that Germany attacked a member of the alliance first. This has happened 75% of the time so far (once I learned about the diplomatic slider's, and started setting mine too 'hawk') while before, I could make my opening wars without interference from France or the other allies.

    Got to get back too the wars!

    Excuse me, but what does DoW mean anyway?

    From time to time France will Dow you (Germany) but it shouldn't happen to often. Are you letting all the events to fire?

    What I really hate about HOI 2 is that the enemy persists to keep everything 1 division. and never make army groups. They just have a jillion divisions so you can see there flag build ups and that allows you to realize, yeah don't attack there.. :(

    Uhhh, no!:eek:

    I'm far too aggressive for that!:) The only reason I mentioned this was because it wasn't till several games into my (short) HoI career that I actually discovered what the Dip sliders were for/what they did.:eek:

    I found a happy medium, nations I could overrun easily and without an Allied DoW. Had too playtest it several times to get it right (and still have always managed to overlook 1 or 2 details each time, lol) and see what all my forces could get away with. I had it down too a working model, just had to finish off the 'rough spots' and all was good....Till I tried setting my Hawk---Dove slider one to the left. Once I did that, a French DoW was 100% before I could finish my biggest pre-war conquest!

    I have since gone back and exchanged (after many many failed attempts to make all my conquests as usual with Hawk) my Hawk selection for a left click on the Standing---Drafted army slider, and this has solved the problem!

    I had a really good game going yesterday, but there seems too be a bug with the naval combat system, as I keep crashing. It might be something with a combined fleet fighting the German fleet. And of course, I had not saved the game after the war started with Poland...

    Very frustrating, cause I had gotten my Industry up to 272 in time for the 'Danzig or war' event. Thats 272 actual, 424 total! Really ticked me off, but now I'll just have too go back and start over and fix the other little mistakes I made along the way.:D:mad::eek:

    Never make army groups? I guess I don't understand? In your games they don't stack their units?

    Nope, they never do just hoards of single division armies.. quite a nuisance. Only positive for them is that all their generals are experienced :(

    Hmmm. Thats odd. I was thinking about starting a big battle, pausing the game, and setting all my units too use my MG too get them promoted. Can you tell if they are promoting their generals?

    I have so far just played on the easiest settings, and the computer seems too be stacking his units for my enemies. What settings are you using?

    I don't think I've paid attention enough;

    ERR! Yeah they have The Germans got a hell-of-a-lot of Field Marshalls.

    Im using Medium but Furious Agressiveness.
    But I guess whats wrong of what I am talking about is, that I am speaking of Armageddon rather doomsday. Lately though later in the wars, I've seen more stacked units now.
    Maybe its just a bug 36-49?

    I know what you mean with the computer stacking single divisions...when I did my 'Alternate history' game, I allied with Poland (as Germany) and they stacked up all their army in Warsaw, that is 50 divisions all by themselves.

    Wow! The most I had is about 8 as Germany. The rest where mechanized inf. Though I had 1 army of 12 normal inf. In the Balkans. And 1 motorised div.

    My current game (Canada) it's 1938, I have 3 inf. and 1 armoured divisions, 1 tac. and 1 Ftr. groups, and my Navy is as follows.

    1 CV (I)
    1 CL (I)
    1 DD (II)
    Though a CA (II) will soon be joining them when I have done the research.

    I never play Canada :D

    I'm new at this forum (as you can see) and I was surprised to see a whole subforum dedicated to HoI...

    As for the one-division armies, I think it's fixed in Armageddon, or was it the DAIM mod, I can't really remember...:confused:

    First of all, Welcome to the forum!

    Second, Canada is, IMHO, the most fun nation to play as. There are no threatening countries, which leaves you free to build up your army & economy. The starting IC isnt bad for a small country. Well, it's not small in size but you know what I mean! :D

    The Anthology includes everything, I believe. Not entirely sure. When you start the game, you just pick the scenario you want to play. The Expansions, included in the Anthology, are exactly that and don't "replace" the original game.
