"I am NOT at-all disappointed!": I have COMPLETELY the OPPOSITE view that you have... I feel sorry for you!. Well isn't that special-- for you. I am equally entitled to my opinion, especially since I put my money down with reasonable expectations of a WWII Grand Campaign (i.e., Allies, Axis, or Sov...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Axis Operations DLCs announced

I for one am very disappointed. These are two DLCs I would NEVER have purchased, and to have them as the first two published makes me regret having bought the Field Marshall edition. I took a chance based on what PC1 published, and you can bet I'll never do THAT again. While I understand there are a...

Re: setany randomness X

it does work. where is your problem? just put it to zero and u will no more have randomness What is the exact command you use? For 10% randomness, I assume it is "setany randomness 10"? (Which does nothing in my game) It doesn't work. I posted this also on Steam, and the developer replied it would ...

Re: Patch 4 is out! (v1.1.1)

Started a new game and the engineer tooltip still reflects 50% vice 4 pts entrenchment reduction for adjacent units. Haven't got to a combat yet-- maybe it's just the tooltip?

Re: Soviet infantry moving across rivers?

So the AI uses "forced march" intelligently to cross minor rivers? That is so cool! I will have to keep a lookout for that-- and use it more myself! :oops:

Re: Russian conscripts

Executions? In the course of the war, 168,000 Soviet citizens were formally sentenced to death and executed for alleged cowardice or desertion; many more were shot out of hand, without a pretence of due process. A total of around 300,000 Russian soldiers are believed to have been killed by their own...

Below: Russian conscripts in action in 'Enemy at the Gates' charging the Germans at Stalingrad. Many don't even have rifles but are told to charge anyway, I don't know if that's just Hollywood nonsense or if it's historically accurate- https://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g64/PoorOldSpike/sub4/sub400...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

That kind of makes the point doesn't it? :D If you have to take time to "count road wheels" to tell what a unit is, that is time you are not playing the game. I think we all acknowledge there are work-arounds, etc., but you shouldn't HAVE to. It is a distractor. It detracts from immersion. I must ta...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

Not sure there is a fix, but my single biggest annoyance in PzC2 is like the screenshot above: I have an incredibly hard time picking out aircraft at times. Obviously the DEGREE of difficulty varies based on terrain, etc. There are some battles where I spend more time per turn squinting at the scree...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

On your first & last screenshot, looks like there is a one-hex gap just southeast of Kiev between the major river and your infantry. If so, that will let the entire force trace supply to a map edge...

Re: Master of Blitzkrieg trait

I only tried it through the second scenario (I think), and it didn't appear to cost *any* extra points. I was was 3-4 hexes away from a river, went over it and a couple more hexes on the other side. Just too much for me. Might as well play with no terrain if there is no penalty at all. Or, maybe the...

Master of Blitzkrieg trait

Well, I tried this on a new campaign and don't really care for it. It says it "reduces" cost for crossing minor rivers, but it seems to totally eliminate it instead. I expected to be able to cross, but not go through it like it wasn't even there-- seems very unfair. Oh well, easy enough to restart.

Re: setany randomness X

I enter the code, and it doesn't actually take effect. Combat log still reflects the previous setting. I've tried it at the start of the scenario, in the middle, etc. I'm reasonably sure I'm entering it properly, e.g, "setany randomness 40" for 40%. But it is not changing per the combat log. I'm pro...

Re: Fundimental Balance Change to Capture.

Agreed. I wasn't really advocating to change anything (I just don't typically split units). Just seemed the argument wasn't really aimed at the root cause of the issue. Lot's of talk about changing multiple traits, etc., to tone down captures, yet almost every example relied on splitting units to ac...

Re: Fundimental Balance Change to Capture.

Generally, I side with "more options are better". Let us play the way we want. But if you read a lot of the prior comments about "perimeter control" & "power 4", many are REALLY focused on the impact of "splitting units". Sooo, if you just did away with splitting units, lots of the other problems wo...

Re: Swamp during Rain

Hmmm. Since combat takes place in defenders hex, it makes sense to me that is can't be directly attacked. Maybe a mechanism where the unit is "stuck" there as well & exerts no ZOC?

Re: Thoughts/learning points after first campaign.

Great post! Pretty much agree with everything and I'm having similar experiences, although haven't quite finished the campaign yet. IMO, the two big takeaways are: - ALL unit classes are/can be very useful - Trait selection options can really drive how you play (so lots of replayability) I think the...
