Re: Fundimental Balance Change to Capture.

Lots of prestige --> more replacements --> faster victories. Correct, I am playing this way. In fact I take Green Army. My units are not precious to me, they are shells for Heroes to ride in. I spent prestige to make prestige. It's sort of a "moneyball" of wargames, but the least sweaty way for pla...

Re: Fundimental Balance Change to Capture.

Still, P4 isn't truly outrageous, and capture isn't outrageous, because the money you have are not really a "working capital", the slot system prevents you from doing that. The spending power is gated, best you can be is Trust Fund General, and you need it to unlock the ahistorical battles. But it ...

Re: Fundimental Balance Change to Capture.

I would suggest that perimeter control be changed so that once encircled, the enemy has to break the pocket externally, NOT negate enemy ZOC as it does now. I would also suggest that master of blitzkrieg give +X more initiative to tanks rather than cross minor rivers. Bridging units are needed to cr...

Re: Fundimental Balance Change to Capture.

The problem with the Power4 isn't the prestige you pick up. It's that it totally breaks the tactics and strategy of the game. You don't have to think about terrain, weather, turns remaining, supply, really....anything. Just split every unit you can, surround, capture, repeat. It's not fun. The game ...

Re: Defensive Scenario & Game Balance

It's not mocking. Some good advice was given. But ultimately, you are playing on the hardest difficulty, it should be challenging and realistically if you're struggling it may be worth dropping the difficulty down a notch. I definitely learned a lot on this level, actually, I would reccommend it. I...

Re: Defensive Scenario & Game Balance

Yes I understood you the first time, and I don't need the condescending tone.

Try it on El Alamein or Tunis and get back to me on Generalissimus. There is nowhere to retreat TO on Tunis with the sea to your back.

I'm done with this thread if I'm only going to be mocked.

Re: Defensive Scenario & Game Balance

I totally understand what you're saying. But shouldn't there be a reward on any difficulty for winning a defensive fight?

Defensive Scenario & Game Balance

I feel like this should be discussed. Once you get to defensive scenarios and head down the historical path -- at least for me -- there isn't much prestige to come by. On Generallissimus I was easily plodding along and capturing and netting upwards to 8K prestige. Then came El Alamein and Tunis. I'm...

Re: Generalissimus AAR Let's Play

I've completed the campaign through Crusader and it has been my best achievement in PC2 to date -- ending with over 7K prestige. I'm slowly trotting out videos as it takes time to process, and I am pushing them out faster than some can watch :) But they will always be out there online for you all. I...

Re: Generalissimus AAR Let's Play

Over the week Libya and Battle Axe will be published. These are both multi-part LP's as these battles were super intense...any minor mistake and the Brits will pounce on you with several Matildas. However I've managed to keep 4K prestige at the end of Battle Axe :) I highly recommend this difficulty...
