Re: AO beg steal and steal again

Time to gather a bunch of stuff in Madrid. Should serve you well in 1939.

Re: AO beg steal and steal again

Merida is, low key, the hardest mission in SCW. I don't think I've ever got the NE objective.

Re: AO beg steal and steal again

I feel like, despite having no artillery/no air force, you have large amounts of both. 4 slots of artillery and 10 planes should see you through.

Collector is super annoying, though. Be super careful with your paratrooper(s)!

Re: please explain

You don't have to do it, those commendation points don't get you anything absolutely earth shaking. If your play experience is being negatively effected, just decline the offer and move on with your run.

Re: AO Very Slow Retrograde

I know what you mean about the game seeming to have a 'sixth sense' for what heroes you can least use. I've got 2 runs, the first, as they came out, I have Liberator and Trophies of war. So I'm *swimming* in prestige. It's gotten 2 shock attack heroes and at least 3 famous ones. The second, which I'...

Re: AO Very Slow Retrograde

I feel like # of Shock Tactics and Envelopment heroes is a secret difficulty inherent in the campaign seed, often as or more important than the challenges or general traits that the player selects. I like the idea of putting it on a strat bomber. I have 2 shock attack heroes in my army by this point...

Re: AO Simple AAR - General Tassadar and his Little Tanks

This was a ferocious battle for me, though you seem to have crushed it more easily. The Siberian forces, the return of the Russian Air Force, and especially the fact that you still have to push forward into the map in the face of bad weather all add to the difficulty. Stellar scenario, to my mind th...

Re: AO Simple AAR - General Tassadar and his Little Tanks

This one really felt 'right' to me. You know? Battle of Kiev, massive encirclement, all easy so far, but the ever present threat of the Red Air Force's return and the constant talk about winter coming on gets you in the right mood.

Re: AO Simple AAR - General Tassadar and his Little Tanks

Trouble for our man Wagner!

Having units for briefing characters feels kind of RPG-esque, to me. I like it.

Looks like you are cruising along pretty well, Moscow coming up!

Re: My thoughts on AO 1941

So, like, the problem of Prestige has come up a number of times, and I've never really found a good place to put my thoughts on it down. Fundamentally, I think a thing Kerensky said earlier is the most important thing to keep in mind. Running out of Prestige sucks and feels bad. The devs have to kee...

Re: AO Simple AAR - General Tassadar and his Little Tanks

I really liked how you get to work alongside the Army Group in this mission. Really helped to give the 'flying squad' vibe, where your army is the most elite section of a much larger force. The airfield creation is also really cool, big thumbs up. Finally, Wagner's presence on the battlefield, in th...

Re: AO Simple AAR - General Tassadar and his Little Tanks

That Envelopment hero is really powerful. I agree with you about this being a mission that reflects the story quite well. You really get the 'sweeping all before us' vibe from it, as you race across the map annihilating the enemy.

Re: AO Simple AAR - General Tassadar and his Little Tanks

I didn't have too much trouble on my normal run. I retrained all my infantry (aside from my beloved Spaniards!) to jump men, and sent 6 units over. Bombers and fighters came across once we had the first airbase, and from there on things weren't too complicated. I'm dreading this one on my 'clash of ...

Re: Smolensk 1941 DLC

What do your forces look like? Smolensk is a big tank battle, so make sure you bring anti tank, your own best tanks and especially dive bombers. You have to basically 'fight upstream' in that one. The Russians have enough forces to push on you throughout the game, you need to be able to push 2-3 hex...

Re: AO Simple AAR - General Tassadar and his Little Tanks

Bralos was much harder for me than the pass itself. No corridor to bypass, just experienced, overstrength units with good heroes well dug in rough terrain.

Re: The Fail 4

I forget the name, but the challenge where the enemy get a hero for every unit is really hard. Most of them are trash, but once or twice per level they'll get an important hero on a unit that can use it, and if you aren't watching out for it your game will end right quick.
