Basic Training Test Answers

1. How many Armies are there in the ACWGC?

There are four armies in the ACWGC. There are two on either side. They are the Army of the Potomac and the Army of the Tennessee for the Union Army and the Army of Northern Virginia and Army of Tennessee for the Confederate Army. In the past the Club has included other armies such as the Army of the Shenandoah, Army of the Cumberland, Army of the Ohio, Army of the James for the Union, and the Army of the West, Army of Georgia, Army of Alabama, and the Army of the Mississippi for the Confederates. 

2. Where do you record your games when you start them?

The Department of Records (DoR). All of the games you play in the ACWGC should be recorded. This is done for a number of reasons. To begin with you will earn points for playing regardless of the outcome of the battle. Second, it helps everyone to know who is actively gaming and who isn't. Lastly, it adds to the database of over 25,000 games in our DoR chronicling the gaming history of our Membership. 

3. The process by which we keep tabs on who is present or not in the Club is known as?

Mustering. Every Member of the Club will be asked to Muster from time to time. This process is quick and easy and simply lets other in the Club know you are still active and gaming. 

4. In single scenario games when is it okay to remove units from the map?

When removing units is a condition for winning the scenario then you may remove units from the map during the game. Removing units when it is not a condition for victory is against Club Rules. Scenario descriptions will usually alert you to the presence of "Exit Hexes" on maps which will award points to you if you can reach and exit your men from the map utilizing these hexes. If you are still uncertain if it is allowed, please ask you commander in the Club for clarification. 

5. Where are promotions handled below the general grades?

Promotions below the general grades are handled in the Department of Records. There is a Report within the DoR entitled "Field Promotions." By clicking on this you can see whether or not you have reached your eligibility for your next promotion. If you have a then a message box will appear that you can click on to receive your next promotion. Promotions above the rank of Colonel are done through your command staff.

6. The best place to find opponents to play against is where?

The best place to find opponents is the Opponent Finder Forum. Every new Member will take a little while to establish some regular gaming partners with whom they can turn to for repeated games. Play as many different people as you can early on and try to learn as much as you can from the veterans. You will likely lose more than you win but every member has had to take their bumps and bruises as they increased their skill level. Ask your friends for advice after you complete a game if you are having problems. Remember the games are all for fun!

7. A game between two Members on the same side of the Club is known as what?

A Maneuver. Games between players on opposite sides of the Club is called a Battle. Maneuvers are worth half the points of a Battle but are still great ways to meet more people and to play a friendly game against an ally on your own side. They will also be likely to give you advice and help as you play if you ask. 

8. To change your password and signature in the ACWGC Forums where do you go?

The User Control Panel is the place to do this within the ACWGC Forums. After signing in you will look in the upper right of the forums to locate the User Control Panel. You can then edit personal information using this area. 

9. Members who fail to reply to multiple Mustering notices are placed where?

The Hospital. Avoiding this is as simple as responding to your mustering notices when you receive them. Even if you do end up in the Hospital you can always email your commander to muster at any time to be placed back in the active ranks. If you stay in the Hospital for too long you will be Discharged from the ACWGC. But the door is always open to everyone to return once they are able to. 

10. The motto of the Training Academy is what?

"It is better to win a friend than a battle." That pretty much sums up everything the Club is about in ten short words! Have fun, play games, and make friends around the world.
