Re: AO Gotta catch 'em all! - The Pazermon Run

A strong hero appears and such all existing units would like him assigned. Considering I lack infantry in this run, I add the hero to PzAbt 3, which already has bonuses to fighting against enemy infantry and further enhance the close combat tank unit. I'm really hoping to get one of these guys (or ...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

So that was apparently too good to be true. A dream short lived, but was fun while it lasted. Makes auxiliaries expendable then and just using the more advanced units in the actual core if there's enough supply. Mmhmm. I'm guessing that I misremembered giving replacements to the M11 back when I use...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

Wow, I was not aware of this little mechanic and was under the impression these would be lost once the scenario ends. This adds extra spice to the whole run, as now you can afford to be much more carefree about using auxiliary forces and keep most of the captured equipment for them, aside from mayb...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

Round 2 Electric Boogaloo For those that skipped past the posts between this one and the last update, I decided that Green Army was too big of a negative for this run, and since I was only a couple turns in I would restart without it.

Re: Questions.

I'm thinking of buying this. When it first came out there were posts about high CPU usage and overheating. Has this been fixed? Traits are new to this game. I understand that you must use Killer Team to get heroes in the SCW DLC. How many positive traits can you use before you have to pick a negati...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

So, one thing I've noticed and been glad about playing this AAR is that it has me playing much closer attention to details I've always kinda skimmed over before. One of those details is just how badly basic replacements screws up your exp gain. I've played with Green Army a couple of times now, but ...

Re: AO Gotta catch 'em all! - The Pazermon Run

Nice to see the skirmish with the French go well, as well as the capture of the Matildas. Also, wasn't the Panzer IIC available in Czechoslovakia? I thought you mentioned allowing the upgrade of German Gift Units as long as it followed the same lineage? Oh, wait, Retrograde is on. That probably expl...

Re: Would you use an understrength prototype?

I mean, here's a crazy thought. There are two of these things, Dicker Max and Sturer Emil... Why not allow one of each to behave separately? Dicker Max will be a 5 strength Gift (unlimited extra parts, but base 5 strength everyone knows is a clearly huge drawback) Sturer Emil will be offered in the...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

How difficult it is to take down enemy fighters here compared to later stages of the war. After PzC 1 I was used to having air superiority or dominance all the time, but the He 51 is hardly a contender against Soviet built fighters. As for Antequera itself, I feel that trying to lure units from the...

Re: Would you use an understrength prototype?

I would certainly give it a shot at least. If a unit is that powerful but also that rare historically, I could see it making sense. I do have some concerns about it causing unexpected issues, but thats pretty much typical of any new system. I definitely think it should be heavily tested before imple...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

Nice! Happy to see runs that explore some different ways to play the game and run into more individual challenges than the prestige pool. General difficulty seem like the perfect balance for this since it is less risky in terms of prestige than the higher ones and allows to explore the concept as m...

AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

I've found myself enjoying Tassadar's challenge mode AAR's so much I decided to try one of my own, partly because the idea for this run has been growing on me for a while now and partly as a way to hopefully improve at the game. Anyway, in this run, I'll be playing around with Auxiliary Units. Lots ...

Re: AO Gotta catch 'em all! - The Pazermon Run

Interesting, I never noticed these. I'll have to carefully look and try to get some then, thanks for the hint! They sorta serve as the elite tank units for the Republicans in Madrid, since all the T-26s and BT-5s went communist leaving the Republicans with Trubias otherwise. I believe they both sta...

Re: AO Gotta catch 'em all! - The Pazermon Run

Well, other than whatever Vega shows up in and the Panzer II Prototype, I think you are pretty much capped for Tanks this run. Oh wait, there are the 2 Matilda Is that the Republicans have in Madrid, but those will probably have to wait till 1940 to actually use considering when they show up. You de...

Good to see this run start. I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.

Re: AO Gotta catch 'em all! - The Pazermon Run

Perhaps skip the non-German unit rule in terms of basic infantry and allow Wehr Infanterie normally, but keep the rule for any other more powerful/specialized infantry? That's less wild, but certainly more balanced. I think I prefer this much simpler option for Infantry purposes that the Auxilary F...

Re: SCW Communists

when they enter the fray, should you just sit on the sideline for awhile and let them fight it out? It's certainly an option. Letting the AI fight each other and weaken themselves before you attack makes it their forces weaker. You do miss out on some experiance earning, but will probably spend les...
