Re: Focus Faction: Athens

Should be Makra Teikhe in case interested (notice the letter h).
(not Makra Teiksè. Unless it is a typing error, where did you get this from? In Greek this would mean Long Meltdown :mrgreen: )

Re: Do you like randomized build options? Why?

I would not mind it either way. I have grown quite accustomed to the current system. Unless you are aiming for something very specific, usually there are useful buildings available that you would anyway build sooner or later, so you can still "optimize" your regions as you see fit, just not a linear...

Re: How do you lose?

a) Could you please refresh our memory as to how we overstrength units? b) Have you tried a campaign in such a way that, whenever you create a new core unit, it is always overstrengthed? a) From the upgrade screen. You can add up to 5 additional strength per unit. b) It is possible, but certainly n...

Re: How do you lose?

- The select few units that are over-precious to me get overstrengthened to avoid losing them (their increased effectiveness is an excellent side effect). I have to admit that in the very rare occasion that I mess up so bad that I lose such units, I do reload the turn, but not for any other unit. Th...

Re: Which hero is best suited for which unit?

Liberator on fast moving ground recon units. Provocator is actually useful. I had a 15 strength tank (Pz IV then Panther) with this trait. I could carefully escort weaker units, like pioneer on the open or AA guns which the AI finds attractive, with this tank and the AI would systematically end up a...

Re: Bonus Objective in Bagration?

I was also wondering about the bonus here. It would be great if there was in-game information about what the bonus objectives will offer.

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

In boredatwork's PzC screenshot, can you quickly tell how many and what type of aircraft are shown? Would a non-gamer WW2 expert be able to spot and identify the 3 planes at the top of the picture sharing the same tile with ground units? And, if so, after how much time? I could go on with this compa...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

As someone who skipped PzC and only tried it out before deciding to purchase PzC2, I really do not understand the fuss about the clarity of units. For me things are definitely looking worse in PzC. Don't get me wrong, I fully agree that the air units in PzC2 should be made more distinguishable. But ...

Re: HELP!! Game seems too hard. And other critique

Indeed you are not providing specific info in order to get specific advice. The Russian front is harder than fighting the western allies. I find tactical bombers critical against the Soviet armoured divisions (and western allies tanks in fact) , yet you seem to have none. Also, if you have too few u...

ragingrondo already covered most important items I wanted to comment. Keep in mind that hills are considered close terrain by game rules.

Re: Thoughts/learning points after first campaign.

That was a very nice read! A few points from my point of view: Bridge units (Brucken-pioniere) are invaluable without the panzer general trait. You cannot risk to get caught on a river crossing! These units can also act as encirclement units or cheap meat shields if you found a weak spot in your lin...

Re: Parachuting seems to select the hex randomly...bug or design?

Why don't you just walk them to the intended tile? They do have movement points after dropping on the ground.

In the classic PG series, I think that the drop off tile was also random (and no option to move afterwards).

Re: How does the Overrun Hero actually work?

what campaigns do you use AA where you don't think the slots used are more valuable than if used for another unit type?? another fighter for example. I am always using AA in my campaigns :D There are AAs costing 1 slot that provide decent cover. If I was to use extra fighters costing at least 3 slo...

We've rolled out an update, please try to switch from legacy 1.0.9 branch to actual one again. Will it work any better?

How does the Overrun Hero actually work?

I cannot seem to understand how the Overrun Hero works. Unless I am missing something, he is supposed to re-set move and attack points after a clean kill. I tested him on a tank, but the move points are not re-set. Overrun was functioning same as usual (as if the hero was not there). I tested him on...
