Bastogne Siege

Bastogne Siege https://i.imgur.com/kIKSHSL.png The DV is virtually identical to the MV. That is, it's extremely difficult to capture all victory hexes (VHs) for the MV and trivial to evacuate all the rockets for the DV. The latter you'd need to do anyway since they get added to your core for huge d...

Celles

Celles https://i.imgur.com/jS7otJd.png Extremely difficult to even get an MV. In fact, I had to deliberately avoid triggering the American counter-attack to reliably get it otherwise I'll get too bogged down and have to rely on pretty much all cloudy weather, full on luck. I did fight the British c...

Houffalize

Houffalize This one is more doable to get the DV having 13 of 18 turns, however I just came up short. One highlight was solving the puzzle to be able to force all six enemy units in the northern screen to surrender on turn two. https://i.imgur.com/AfnDPeY.png https://i.imgur.com/l6CpqEr.jpg Dep htt...

St. Vith

St. Vith Taking all victory hexes in only 9 of 14 turns with snowy weather? Nah, taking only the northern road which allows me to reasonably take all but the one victory hex in the very southwest corner. https://i.imgur.com/vuxLj0i.png https://i.imgur.com/2yNMKie.jpg Bypassed all but the northern r...

44 Recap

44 Recap

6 Marginal Victories
6 Decisive Victories
10883 Prestige with 82 units
1 Reload (Caen)

It feels like importing a non-Ultimate core gave me a bit of an edge.

Re: Why do PT boats have 'Concealable'

tooltips! Tooltips are the best. If it were up to me, tooltips would be expanded (literally and figuratively) to be the primary means of information telling instead of manuals or tutorials. Always there, right when you need it. I do a lot of UI stuff at my job and there's no inherent reason why you...

Re: Why do PT boats have 'Concealable'

I believe they're concealed in port hexes but haven't tested it.

Boot Camp #1

Boot Camp #1 Not gonna go too in depth on the boot camp scenarios. Mostly just learning the game and making mostly bad decisions in hindsight, especially regarding specializations. Field medic is a huge no-go due to the core transfer mechanics only carrying over experience so you're much better off...

Boot Camp to US Pacific - Fleet Admiral

After playing a lot of Panzer Corps I've decided on a foray into Order of Battle due to both games sharing the same qualities that I greatly enjoy, in particular, building your own core from scratch and detailed historical context. However there are some key differences that caused me some great bun...

Re: Advanced difficulties and the air force.

I use lots of air units along with heavy AA. The first turn or two I focus on air traps, a mechanic I greatly enjoy, which paves the way nicely for air supremacy. I really like not having to worry about enemy air units re-appearing, just be done with them. I use lots of fighters in particular. When ...

Re: PC 2 Price?

Steam takes a decent cut but more sales on steam will boost visibility there. Not sure if that's a major reason here but that'd be a potential in addition to the obviously reduced operating cost for not having to deal with payment and key-issuing.

I read through the whole of this. Very impressive. I struggle on standard settings already. This would drive me insane.

Eindhoven

Eindhoven Getting a DV here is extremely difficult at any difficulty level and something I didn't achieve on Manstein, thus, going for it here on Ultimate was out of the question. Instead, I held up north of the Meuse for a somewhat cushy MV. I still had to take over enemy held cities/sectors from ...

Nijmegen Another relatively easy one. No major issues getting the job done with only five of ten turns. It's been a while since I played this but I think I had to restart after losing a core unit to the armored counter-attack in the south. https://i.imgur.com/rhMPVWT.png https://i.imgur.com/Ee9hBzi...

Arnhem

Arnhem Very easy one despite having only three turns, a very hefty 63% reduction. More turns would've been nice to capture some of the remaining enemy flags but not necessary to get the DV. Used bridge engineers along with four other fast units to cross the Nederrijn ASAP. https://i.imgur.com/yjApq...
