Re: Am I getting less XP after 42' GC on Rommel?

Your experience becomes more difficult to accumulate after you reach higher levels of experience. In other words it is extremely easy to get that first star of experience. A lot more difficult to get that 4th star. Does that make sense? What I mean is the lower experience levels are acquired more q...

Am I getting less XP after 42' GC on Rommel?

Feels like my units are getting XP much slower.

Re: Is flammpanzer worth using?

Flamm Panzers can accumulate a huge number of kills. They are great units to have until Stalingrad. Once you get past that point, you can leverage their heroes and decide on an upgrade. Why until Stalingrad, because Soviets get better infantry after that? Not played past that point in GC. But flamm...

Re: Is flammpanzer worth using?

Wow, didn't know the Soviets had flamethrower tanks, didn't play them yet :) Yeah, thanks for the reminder, the flammpanzer was AI's most hated unit by far from memory, needs a lot of babysitting but can trigger some nice traps at least. I will try and use one in my game, if I end up liking it I mig...

Is flammpanzer worth using?

Has anyone found a good efficient use for flammpanzer overall? I've used it for fun in the past but was never quite happy with how it performed, took too many casualties too often. It was my favorite unit back in modded PG2. I'm trying to think of a way to abuse its insane 140% RoF, and I'm just thi...

Re: Heroes pattern?

A and D then have a chance for +1 (4/7), +2 (2/7) +3 (1/7), so most will be +1A or +1D. Even than a run of 2 or 3 +3 is in the 1 in a few thousands, so you should see a few runs, but 4 or 5 in a row would be getting pretty rare, though given the number of plays there should be a few. Seen this befo...

Which units does AI air force focus the most?

Since a lot of people on here read the AI's gameplay on a very high level and can predict a lot of moves and set up traps accordingly etc, I was wondering which unit types make the best bait for the AI to optimize my trapping gameplay a bit. I'm using Oleh Dir as a Pioniere unit, is that a bad idea ...

Heroes pattern?

Anyone else notice a potential little pattern when receiving heroes on units? I know people say it's completely random and this can easily be a coincidence but this is what just happened to me. Never finished GC before and reached 43' last time on General before I got bored with using one type of un...

Re: My artillery didn't get iron cross after 100 kills in GC, defensive artillery bug?

Ah okay, thanks goose! I need those heroes, may have gone a bit overboard with hero farming (because of your advice lol), I have 63 experienced units at Sedan :D Pretty hard to get two recons with a spotting hero which is what I want, last playthrough I got two right off the bat which was very lucky...

My artillery didn't get iron cross after 100 kills in GC, defensive artillery bug?

Looks like my artillery didn't get the iron cross medal because it got its 100th kill from defensive artillery or something, what does this mean for my unit then?

Am I not going to get a hero now on it? Is the unit ruined? I hope not :(

Re: Parachuting?

If you have transports available but can't deploy, try switching between air and ground mod. Also, if your paras have transport you can't use planes. Thanks, but I'm aware of that, that's why I was asking about what looked like hidden limitations. Definitely have enough experience using paras overa...

Re: Parachuting?

Thanks for the replies guys but I'm afraid Goose is right, some scenarios just don't seem to allow any to be deployed or embarked which is disappointing.

Parachuting?

Is it just me or is the parachuting in the game very inconsistent? I'm trying to use paras more but seems like I'm not allowed to on some maps/airfields, can't deploy them in the air on some maps despite removing transports or can't embark from certain airfields. Anyone know the exact mechanics on u...

Re: Favorite advanced tips?

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about the British units.

Re: Favorite advanced tips?

Some good tips here. I was always a fan of air traps from PG2 days, sometimes could string a chain of 3 of them :D Noticed the AI in this game loves to target certain units, like Panzerflams or Pioneers. Loved learning the hidden mechanics in PC, learned a lot from Braccada, the game is much deeper....

I wouldn't insult the AI too much, they might remember it when they take over the world at some point :D A bit of a rant, but sometimes I get stuck with the restart syndrome because I can't decide how to play (games in general), feels like there's an eternal battle going on between the hardcore powe...
