I have it - and it can be frustrating. It was left in a proper mess

I was not aware. I do not have the game. I should withdraw that suggestion. I just looked at the community hub and there are many sticky threads about resolving various issues. Could potentially be more frustrating than fun.

I got further as the Dwarves than anyone else. But the Orcs just kept coming at me and, like in Gus' latest blog, they had lots of upgraded units way beyond mine. Finally lost interest in continuing the struggle, but now that I know it's possible to win.....

There seemed to be three major crisis chokepoints where the game just threw everything it could at me.   The first was the major push by the Orcs.  I managed to ambush their killer army with my two main stacks in the Underway and finish them off.  Then it was just a war of attrition to pick all the tribes off.  Second was breaking out of the starting area and getting past the vampires.  I never really did manage this and the AI empires did most of the work for me.  Fortunately the vampires were pretty weak when the Chaos armies showed up and so sued for peace.  Id gotten my ass handed to me by the Chaos armies landing raiders to the south before so I kept 4 big armies garrisoned down there this time and I was able to grind up the landing parties this time round.

The big thing that let me finally beat the game was constantly offering the other Dwarf tribes the confederation option in the diplomacy screen.  I dumped most of my early research into diplomacy skills and kept sucking up to the other Dwarf clans until relations got to a high enough level where theyd join my empire.  Good way to get lots of money and armies for cheap.

hmm the one game that I got far in, it was a Dwarf tribe that overwhelmed me!

I was able to confederate with the other Dwarf tribes pretty easy too. The problem was most of them had crap for settlements, were way out of their budgets, and almost no troops to defend with. They were more a liability than an asset.

A cheaper alternative that might be worth a look.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover Blitz Edition.

Some guy posted on their forum that the new site doesn't scale properly to 2550x1440.  Works fine for me at 3440x1440.  Tried to post saying so.  New site doesn't recognize me when I try to log in but does when I ask to change my password, but won't save the new password, and now has locked me out.  Oh well....

I would hold off for a sale JD. You just missed the DCS summer sale. Both the map and asset packs were heavily discounted. I almost jumped on it, but I'm just not interested in playing DCS in WWII, and I heard that support and updates have been infrequent.
Cheers. I'm not really that into WWII for flight simming - but the daughters BF loves it. He'll be gutted 1C took away BoS and BoM

Then honestly, you're probably just better off getting BoS and BoM again. Its a superior sim for WWII. I think its great you can indulge in this hobby with your daughter's boyfriend. I hope someday (many, many, many years in the future) my daughter meets a gentleman that shares some of my interests.  O0
