    Other Than Infantry

    Are there plans to expand the type of involvement players will have in WoR. For instance, scouting, artillery, cavalry, etc..? I haven't read too far into the vision for the game so forgive me if this has been asked multiple times.

    We released a road map a while ago:

    10. Player controlled artillery: The many batteries already placed on the battlefields will become player controlled once we introduce an artillery system, where players will have access to some of the most destructive and tide-turning weapons of war.

    12. Cavalry: Horses are to be implemented for both cavalry units, moving artillery pieces, as well as for the high command and their couriers. The cavalry was still an important branch of the armies of the period considering the changes in technology, acting as reconnaissance and quick response units as understandings for their use developed over the period of the war.
    Also, in the recent field report we released 2 weeks ago, we teased this:

    The past 16 updates have also come with new content in the form of a new skirmish area, a wintery drill camp map, end game events and a benchmark in the game. We’re currently working on several content-related tasks such as the South Mountain battlefield, a radial menu for officers in order to give them a wider selection of available orders, game systems needed in order to implement player controlled artillery, artillery branch specific uniforms and assets and much more.

    Hello,

    First thing first, let me tell you that your game is very nice. You are doing a great job.

    However, I'm getting a little bored and I created this account to ask one simple question.

    Are we getting artillery in like a few months or shall I wait until next year? I know that artillery was teased but I'm not enjoying the game anymore and I need a new incentive to play.

    I know you can't be precise.

    Thank you very much.

    To prevent boredom or burn out, we try to :

    • Mix gamemodes/maps (Antietam / Harpers Ferry / Picket Patrol*)
    • Focus on events & drills
    • Let different people take command/try new strategies ...
    • Play different regiments/players …


    But I get some are waiting for cav, arty or the full release.

    * If you haven't tried picket patrol, it provides some fresh wind
    I write for my personal account and from personal experience, unless stated otherwise.

    Being a cannon crewman could get boring if you're assigned to swabbing or loading. Cannon crewmen were each assigned a task to keep the cannon running smooth. So, the game would be a cannon simulator. One crewman gets trigger time, the others stand around and wait until the cannon is fired. I speak as someone who has done ACW reenacting as a cannon crewman.

    Still, it would be an interesting concept.
