Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gameplay

I think you already said that there would be no ranged direct fire. But that was a key feature of PG2 IMO. Somewhat overpowered at times, sure, but also led to some very interesting tactical problems. Tigers shooting across major rivers; Russian T-34s (and American Shermans) rushing in close in with...

Re: Can you recognize those icons?

Again, I don't think most of us are looking for EVERY state. For example, in the current game all you know is that there is a hero attached. Then you have to right click the unit, then open the Battle History and THEN hover over the hero to see what the hero stats are. Two mouse-clicks to find what...

Re: Can you recognize those icons?

[quoteWe can certainly use these dots for experience instead. I'm not opposed to this idea at all, but it does look like a "partial" solution, because you still don't see everything affecting unit's stats on the map (heroes, awards, good and bad states etc.), so you still need to rely on the UI to g...

Re: Can you recognize those icons?

Unit strength plates: - chevron: core unit indicator Hmmm. So the chevron isn't experience. So it doesn't seem that experience is indicated at all? I know you said it was going to be handled differently, but knowing the exp. level of a unit at a glance was always a very important thing for me. On a...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #2

Sounds great! While I personally am a Single Player guy, the MP described sounds quite innovative. Happy to hear about all the plans for campaigns, and a random map generator sounds outstanding. Sounds like you guys have upped your game! :D :D

Re: What content would you like to see in PzC 2?

Campaigns/scenarios that aren't "puzzles" with only ONE real path to a solution. I thought PzC 1 was pretty good in that regard-- as was PG1. PG2 wasn't TOO bad, but it started down puzzle road, and IMO all the later games got worse: Smaller maps, lower unit densities, and often only one real path t...

Re: Air Defense in old Panzer General

It doesn't seem a valid assumption to me that TACAIR didn't actually kill a lot of tanks. Everything I've read supports that TACAIR was LETHAL to tanks-- almost legendary in fact. Along with air superiority it was a decisive advantage that was only mitigated by bad weather. I don't think it's overpo...

Re: Ideas for Panzer Corps 2

IMO the real issue is a continuous self-feeding death spiral: Player gets to field large armies where everyone is elite & overstrength---> scenario designers assume this, so the OPFOR is ALSO elite & overstrength (and in extra-huge numbers) to ensure a challenge. It just gets worse and worse. It's u...

Re: Wargamer PzC 2 first screenshots

Still, it looks much more like a PG2 remake rather than an enhanced PzC1. Don't know why, but I was expecting a mo' better version of PzC1. So I don't think we're going to be able to directly compare PzC1 to PzC2, any more than we could really compare PG1 to PG2. Similar but different games. Probabl...

Re: Wargamer PzC 2 first screenshots

First thought is that it looks a lot like PG2. Since I played a LOT of PG2 I can live with that, although wasn't crazy about the map style. Of much more concern is the "dynamic map generation" combined with a later comment: "Doing historical battles is also a potential issue due to the dynamic maps"...

Re: I am quite pesimistic about this game...

I hear you, but we're not talking Skyrim, Total War, etc. Can't see it being a resource hog. Graphically, I would hope for something along the lines of the sneak-peeks of Unity of Command 2. Unfortunately there have been a few games that were "pretty" but sucked. By the same token, being "ugly" does...

Re: I am quite pesimistic about this game...

I've heard this argument a lot, and in this day and age don't understand it. Graphics vs. AI/gameplay is not an either/or proposition. There is no excuse for crappy graphics. I like NATO counters for games like WITE, etc. Don't think they are really ideal for a game like PC2-- nice option I guess if...

Re: I am quite pesimistic about this game...

I was optimistic to begin with, especially with the original statement that implied most of the design decisions were done/already implemented. Kind of implied they were just building scenarios, working on play balance, etc. The fact they have shown absolutely nothing to date (not even a teaser) is ...

Re: Military training centre build criteria

Not sure about new version, but through patched original you only had to research the technology that allowed building it-- after that you could build it anywhere/everywhere you had production capability.

Re: Polaris Sector: Lumens is out!

I've been kinda watching for some feedback, but little here and only 2 reviews (in English) on Steam. I still play Polaris once in awhile, but probably won't bother with Lumens if it's a bit underwhelming.

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gamep

I would like to see some kind of change regarding replacements. On the one hand there are a lot of folks asking for more "realistic" supply rules, yet everyone just accepts the "Elite Replacement" concept. As an example, in 1944-45, just WHERE are the Germans getting ELITE replacements from?? Ditto ...
