Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #4

These ideas are pretty good indeed. The only thing is again implementing it so AI can take advantage of all these new additional situations. I just don't see an AI doing such sophisticated maneuvers, which would require planning at least a couple of turns in advance, analysing benefits of positionin...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #4

It's obvious the tactics of handling this situation will have to change from PzC to PzC2. The solution for your impasse example is that you should suppress enemy artillery first with bomber or your artillery and then attack the AT with your infrantry. It's just a different rock paper scissors game, ...

Re: All is quiet on the eastern front

Not to worry developers, but unless some announcement comes soon, I fear a massive proletariat uprising is due and I will be part of it! Pitchforks and all.

Yeah, he was so kind to newbies providing these long detailed analyses. May have ran out of energy or just switched to playing another game like any sane person would do (but not us).

Re: Beware: Tiger H is very expensive junk..:)

Ok maybe Radio wasn't the best example because a tank either has it or not. However with reliability, it's on a range from 0-100% and you cannot say suddenly below 50% reliability, the tank becomes unreliable and above that it is good to go, because then you need to do something else when one tank h...

Re: Beware: Tiger H is very expensive junk..:)

The Unreliability feature is a two edged sword... I don want to badmouth it, since it is a factor that makes difference... adds detail. But, here come the ever existing BUT. Such factor is a serious depriving in OOB environment, and the biggest problem is that it affects only the selected units. Le...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #4

You seem to be a proponent of removing the chess mode too, so no, I don't agree with you that game should be reduced to the 5 difficulties, because that's too simplistic and limits people's choices. Also, designers can simply state the game is balanced around using the turn limit option on, same way...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #4

Again, people seem to be missing the point that this will be an OPTION. I don't get the complaints about something that can be turned on or off at whim. It's same thing with any other difficulty option like prestige slider for AI or player, random/chess dice rolls, etc, etc. You can either play with...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #4

my opinion is, there should be some penalty for no turn limits, as no war is fought forever, supplies and equipment are needed elsewhere on given dates, or other battles and fronts suffer? The diary already said "turn limit" will be an option that can be turned on or off, so why not just treat it l...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #4

I wonder if fire support is for towed ATG only. Because some self propelled AT units are pretty powerfully armed against soft targets, in fact they are designed specifically for that duty. In fact, thinking this through, there is a very tough triangle of units to assault now. 2 Arty and 1 ATG unit....

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #4

The last bit about support fire is huge! Very excited about it. With this mechanic, positioning will become even more crucial and will require chess-like precision and anticipation of enemy moves, which some may like, but others may not. I feel I will but one thing that I am cautious about when addi...

Re: Disruption penatly

Btw, there's a bug in that even though the tooltip suggests there's a 0 penalty for travelling through a paved road in dense forest, there's still an efficiency drop albeit a smeller one. Maybe the tooltip needs to be corrected that the drop of efficiency is smaller or it's an actual bug but either ...

Re: Weird game

I think what the op is trying to say is that... The briefings should be a bit more specific on scenario reinforcement design. It's too vague currently when it doesn't make sense to be as is the case of reinforcements. The command clearly should be aware of how many units are coming and when because ...

Re: OOB Expansions I don't want to see

When is the DLC coming, Andy? We promise we won't tell anyone if you share. Panzer Strategy turned out to be a massive disappointment that I couldn't force myself to play even 2 turns.

Waiting for OOB with eternal patience but it's getting hard when no decent substitutes available.
