GSC Reveals Secret: Tactical Discipline Wins
Posted @ 1:57 AM || Angel ET

The following is a direct excerpt from the latest CDV Newsletter which sets up this unique gaming experience.

"When you find yourself captivated in a real-time mayhem commanding up to 16,000 units, you will be playing one of the most epic and grandiose RTS experiences ever: American Conquest. To keep an overview over this massive amount of units, developers GSC incorporated the "L-Mode" in American Conquest. It allows the user to zoom out of an area and get an overview, to prevent him from becoming lost during epic battles. The "L-Mode" goes beyond a basic zoom function, as the player is still able to control every and each unit of his troops. This offers a whole new field in tactical combat, as the player will be able to organize his attacks in a much broader view. To get an idea of how "L-Mode" works, we've collected a few screens for your viewing pleasure." Here's the link Here

So what's the big secret? The developer discloses a strategic promise, or at least a hope for success during battletime situatons. Here's their tactical disclosure. "It's all about discipline! To form different formations, officers are needed to control the soldiers. With the proper formation, you will even be able to defeat an enemy whose forces outnumber your own, so use them well."

This makes me wonder..with morale boosts, increased strengths, is this the answer to the current rushing Peasant army rage? This is absolutely something we all must try.

Cossacks Heaven Nets Kudos in Recent Review
Posted @ 3:02 AM || Angel ET

Cossack Heaven's Cherub Sharpe novel reader has found a review from PC Zone where we can read and savor their nice complimentary comments about our slice of Heavengames. It's always great when it's made known that we have many very popular game map downloads, one "Waterloo 1815" is approaching 10,000, currently 9800 plus and another is well over the 8000 download mark. These are great and challenging game maps, if anyone hasn't tried them already they are highly recommended. Join the forum discussion Here and read some of quotes and comments on this item.

GSC keeps pumping out the info on Civs in their American Conquest game. Their latest is on the Aztecs. Cossacks Heaven is making every effort to provide a peek at some of the American Conquest units and buildings, so watch for our AC updates.

We acknowledge that our priority is toward EWCossacks addons and the prevailing sequels. Thus we encourage those players who have great Art of War and Back to War Maps, Mods, and instructional strategy in the form of saved games, to please share them with other players by using our downloads medium.
