1: How many "turns" are in a year? I ask this because I felt MTW was far too short with having only 1 turn per year, and I think RTW as well was too short with only 2 turns a year. I rather enjoyed STW's 4 turn years, however.

2: What has changed about battles since the demo? Do enemies ever retreat? Can you retreat? can you capture enemy artillery? Are officers in?

3: Post any cool or interesting things that were a surprise.

Ah, another question, has the infamous Pause & Command been put in?

* 1 turn is 1 month
* All of those, except the officers will not be on the battlefield itself, only on the management map to move your troops (still they are very important in the game.)
* I keep the surprises for myself. ^^
* No Pause & Command, just pausing.

Thanks! I like the 12 Turns/Year bit. That'll make campaigning much more interesting.

So 12 months per year. Any implementation of weather factors (i.e. Russian Winter) ?
