Re: Stalingrad for BA2 ?

How do you simulate living in caves and starvation? Will need to add some kind of supply element... Not that I'm opposed. Very disappointed to see that there's no more development, as the release of new expansions for BA one was always something to look forward to!

I love the icons too. It may take a little while to get used to, but once you do it's no problem... And it adds atmosphere for sure.

Re: Most difficult Campaign servey

Can't wait to have the time to try the recently purchased (Happy Easter, indeed!) Metz! Previously, I'd say Market Garden is the hardest. Depending on luck, it can be impossible to win.

Re: Escaping the Pocket

ß2.2.4 I actually failed this mission the first time round (though I got achievement scars for taking the Hill VPs and one of the other—can't remember if whether you're supposed to get achievements when you fail a mission). So, it's now pretty tough. One thing that I still have trouble with is that ...

Re: BotB: Battered and Besieged

[*]Don't lose any VPs Me. :) However, this seemed to reveal a number of bugs. One was that I needed to chase down every rag-tag "unit" of 1/5 German Infantry and, eventually, a halftrack with a panzerschreck on board that was stopped on the road all the way to the left. When I destroyed those two u...

Re: AA units getting experience from downing aircraft

Well there are some very powerful Artillery Guns that ussualy rout or kill infantry (25 Pounder for example) will be elite in the first couple turns. And it is battlefield experience so it has to fight face to face for good experience I understand this logic, but the conclusion is that is some arti...

Re: AA units getting experience from downing aircraft

On a related note, I've never understood why units don't gain experience when they destroy another unit with indirect fire. Since it is known that the unit is destroyed, presumably this is being communicated to the firing unit and they would know that they'd hit their mark as much as any other...

Re: Counter-attack (7)

It may be possible but it doesn't promote good tactics - even knowing where the ATGs are you'd be flying in riskily just to accomplish it. I like the risk. There's excitement in not knowing if something will succeed, in taking a big risk. Without these kind of achievements, the temptation—nay, the ...

Re: Rommel Multiplayer

Ok, citizen6 and I are about to face off. One thing: the force selection appeared before the mission briefing. Hard to know what might come in handy—though, there was so much money that there was barely a choice. (Not complaining.)

Re: Counter-attack (7)

ß2.2.2 Took the hill in 4 turns, to my surprise. It required taking the flag with a Panther, which survived a direct attack from infantry hidden in the nearby building and a shot from a nearby AT gun. But, with Panthers and a halftrack and scouts, it was doable even with a mistake (pushing my halftr...

Re: Operation EPSOM (6)

(Mac ß2.2.2)

Seems extremely challenging if not impossible to get the 5 tanks within 4 turns without a deployment mode.

Generally, a very challenging scenario that's perhaps a bit large and thus overly long. But, given it's challenge I still found it enjoyable.

Re: Holding the fortress

(Mac ß2.2.2) I agree about the AI - there are a few battles where this is an issue (most particularly Holding the Heights where they drive back and forwards exposing flank and rear shot when just sitting and firing would have been much more effective). AI seems improved. It doesn't attack at the ver...
