Historical Hero Recap ('44)

+6 def, excellent. A turn of city entrenchment at 5-star gives him a defense rating of 26 against artillery. Very useful in Berlin.

British India https://i.imgur.com/2ePyoe8.png https://i.imgur.com/YMOytU4.png Wow I really enjoyed this one, turned out to be one my all time faves and a true epic.

East Africa https://i.imgur.com/gFYIAfA.png https://i.imgur.com/tJaE6bZ.png A full on naval landing for a nice variety, the only one besides Malta. The 15-strength units near the coast do -2 damage on average so they must not spot any landing craft within reach. In the north I could only land three...

Re: New Campaign Idea?

Not sure if it's an issue but at -75% experience you will stop gaining experience after 4-stars in GC East for many, if not all engagements due to the campaign's exp modifier. Also probably at 2 or 3-stars occasionally. Regarding enemy over-strength, I actually think it enhances the game, partly due...

Re: Yours favorite movies about WWII

Catch-22 is a bit outlandish for my tastes but has some gems in it for the ww2 buff. It's unique in being centered around a B-25 battalion doing tactical level-bombing rather your typical four-engine B-17 or B-24 fare. It's also on hulu which is much more accessible than HBO. If you're not in the US...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

Going to town on enemy aircraft with your AA is one of, if not the most, satisfying parts of the game imo.

The skill of predicting AI behavior and creating air traps with them is also really enjoyable to deploy.

Re: Afrika Korps (Manstein)

Hey Buddy, I am so glad you picked this puppy back up, as it helps me in preparation for my playthrough. I finished Gazala last night...very much enjoy that map for its randomness and complexity. So now it is time to prepare for Malta. My question is this, I want any tips from the beastmaster that ...

Iraq https://i.imgur.com/HdAkPRW.png The key to this one is to listen to your boss and capture the Baghdad airfield ASAP. Neutralizing it with strategic bombers is the easy and safest bet.

Strongest main line infantry due to such beefy stats, tip of the spearhead for many pushes. Second hero was initiative +1. Incredibly high K/L ratio for infantry.

Picked up another movement hero to put him on part with Oleh Dir. Used extensively but foolishly gave him transport that was eventually removed. Waste of money with 6 movement by foot.
