Re: The Prestige Problem

And they will continue to come up even if your idea ever comes to pass because you haven't actually solved anything by suggestion yet another optional game system. Because not everyone interacts with every system, and a lot of expectation for fixing issues is actually for correcting issues that pla...

Re: The Prestige Problem

Still like how these "do something about prestige" topics keep coming up. For those talking about -80% prestige option - it doesn't exist! There is a -80% & +20% enemy accuracy option, don't forget to mention you are forced to beef up the enemy damage output, even if you don't like that. Again i put...

Re: My thoughts on AO 1941

Once again i think the most amazing solution to all prestige problems is: to allow people to adjust prestige gain by a simple slider - so you can get more or less prestige however you want. This can increase/decrease the difficulty for you without having to also opt for enemy supersoldiers at the 4t...

Re: Proposal - Rebalance Prestige

I agree with all of dalfrede's points. I'd like to add two of my own. First, your argument assumes that what is delivered is the same thing as what the design intended. This is not always the case. It is often impossible to design software with a clear idea of how all the parts will interact. So th...

Re: Proposal - Rebalance Prestige

The Mod Manager was only released this month. There are a number of promised features that have not yet been implemented. I expect the slider adjustments for prestige, enemy strength et al as in PzC1 to appear in PzC2. It may take a while, but there have been improvements with every DLC, so as long...

Re: Proposal - Rebalance Prestige

I have already often given the suggestion to allow people to adjust prestige gain by a simple slider - so you can get more or less prestige however you want. This can increase/decrease the difficulty for you without having to also opt for enemy supersoldiers at the 4th and 5th difficulty level. This...

Re: Finland without Finnish?!?

As the poster above me said, this is a very aggressive way to display your opinion. It’s seems more like an attack rather than trying to provide a convincing argument as to why there should be Finnish troops on those 2 scenarios. I assume comments, replies, and reviews like this do more to hurt the...

Re: Finland without Finnish?!?

Pretty much the easiest thing to do was to just get any of the regular infantry sprites re-colour them a bit and slap a Finnish flag on it. Have some/a bunch of them be present as aux units on the map. At least then you could say it would've been too much of a hassle to do more for 2 missions. Peopl...

Re: Finished AO 1939

It can be harder than 1939, Spanish Civil war had me doubting sometimes whether i would make the objectives, but 1939 you just steamroll through, bonus objectives included. Most of all i would like the option to fiddle more with prestige without giving the enemy accuracy bonusses. Since i cant do th...

Re: Saar offensive reference works.

You definitely won't find any reference to the raid on Forbach with captured French equipment though. That is pure fantasy... which is why it's flagged as an optional scenario. Just like semi-fictional Catalonia, and fictional Germans in Finland. This is definitely going to be a re-occurring theme,...

Re: AO 1939 scn tree is VERY controversial

When purchasing the Field Marshall edition, maybe already have a little text what that DLC is going to be about would've been great. (So you have to think about such things earlier) And although that probably wouldn't be good for sales, it would be honest towards players. Cause i probably would not...

Well, so far we've at least not been accused of reselling the same old Grand Campaign all over again in the sequel. :mrgreen: Its impossible to accuse you in that regard, you change so much.

Re: AO 1939 scn tree is VERY controversial

Pitching in on the argument of the 1939 shenanigans in the West being 'too small a thing, too tiny a battle': I haven't seen anyone 'scandalised' about the Spanish Civil War DLC, even though it blows the quantities of various equipment way out of proportion. Take the Trubia tank, which you see arou...

Re: AO 1939 scn tree is a disaster

No, but i do think that it shows that in magnitude, the Saar offensive was just a sideshow compared to the fighting in Poland. I think Kondi's point is, he wants to play the big battles. He wants to fight where the biggest action is. Breaking through Polish lines, fighting tooth and nail to get thr...

Annotation 2020-08-21 121022.jpg Is this supposed to show Kondi754 has a point or not? =P In comparison one small part of the battle of Poland (1 mission in the Panzer Corps 39' DLC) already has more casualties than the entire Saar offensive all together: We’re not in a video game comparing scores....

Re: AO 1939 scn tree is a disaster

I find this selection of scenarios very controversial in this DLC. The French limited attack in the Saarland was not so interesting to devote as many as 5 maps to this event. They shot a bit in the air and returned to the trenches and bunkers... :lol: Annotation 2020-08-21 121022.jpg Is this suppos...

Night Phoenix's Grand Campaigns

Due to my desire to have a Grand Campaign in the spirit of Panzer Corps i have decided to create my own Grand Campaign through Order of Battle. Order of Battle allows for much more diversity in storytelling/objectives etc. that PzC ever did which makes it great for that purpose. I had initially put ...
