Hey everybody. I just started playing EaW and FoC again after a long time and am really pissed off by one feature of this game:

While you start with ONE ground unit and be able to call in several reinforcements AT YOUR CHOICE, the space battle just starts with what seems to me being a mostly random choice of space crafts.

It happens all the time, that I have several Stardestroyers in the back while ALL my ground troup transports participate from the beginning!

Is there any change in changing this? F.e. start the space battle with the most powerful ship and send in reinforcements at will?

Yes. When you zoom into a planet where you have space or ground taskforces in orbit, you'll see a box in each of the three taskforce lots. What you do is select any unit - in this case a Star Destroyer, and drag that icon into the box.

Then when you enter a system, only the unit in the box will appear. you can then use the 'reinforcements' button to bring in whatever units you want from your taskforce.

Oh man, thank you! I always wondered what this was for. I read the manual (in parts) but didn't found anything about it.

Well, thanks again.

Well, the only problem with the dragging method is that you cant have fleet commanders in your fleet during the tactical battle.

true. That's why it's better to just make sure you never combine ground and space taskforces.
