Re: AI improvement

I like the suggestions for making the AI less foolhardy. Also, as I have suggested in that linked thread, I would love to see an element of randomness. Advancing more carefull will certainly benefit the AI, but being predictively careful will still see it exploited each and every time. Perhaps the A...

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

Alternatively, or additionally, you could offer useful maps during the briefing, maps which correspond to the game map and could include drawings and symbols to represent the state of surveillance. A group of at least 4 tank units here, a fortification at the bend of the river, partisan acivity from...

Re: Some notes on the dev diary

No but you could do it with multiple images. Let's say two big tanks represent 10 or max strength. Then one large with 4 small =9. Once you get below 5/half strength then you have the smaller multiples representing the strength. Of course you'd have to make an allowance for the over strength images...

In Panzer Corps I. terrain types dont play a roll (besides rivers, bridges and wheater as such)
It does ? Infantry gets a huge bonus in closed terrain, for example.

Re: Problem getting AA to fire

Does the machine use the PC version ? If yes, it is a pecularity of the interface. You need to use tab to switch between air and ground mode. In air mode, the AA will fire at the selected aerial target in range. In ground mode, it will move at the selected hex before firing.

Re: Let's talk Tournament 2018 (Interaction + Vlog)

Fantasy roleplaying games are another of my favorites. Gwaylare was originally the name of a Shadowrun character I used in the early 90s. She died very soon because of some capriciousness dice, so I am using her name now for more then 25 years in multiplayer games of all kind. So I am used to play ...

Re: New Difficulty Level for Grand Campaign

From what I have learned excessively playing in the early months of the war during the tournament, I really came to love Fallschirmjäger to annihilate any western infantry until the advent of British heavy infantry. I never noticed that before. On the downside, there is no cheap upgarde path from Ge...

So if I catch your drift and to choose Snowballs words: Jim, do you want to be part of a team (of people whose a** I kicked)? What does that make Gwaylare and me? Team captains?

I think the 2019 tournament will feature an international arbitration clause. Its winner will be decided by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague.

I am 42, married, two kids, working in a legal profession. I am probably the only German who is not watching TV right now while the German team is playing soccer somewhere in Russia.

Re: Strongpoints and Forts

Judging from their looks and their role is most scenarios, I guess these do represent proper bunkers, not some kind of MG nest. Maybe they are named improperly.

Re: Sealion 41

Buy additional strategic bombers. Once you have destroyed most British fighters or the capital ships move out from the cover of AA or fighters, even a He111 will destroy a battleship two or three attacks. They are cheap and disposable. Also, as you have tried, use FJ, preferrably in a group of three...

Re: P47 v P51

Regardless of the actual historical comparison, I dislike situations when new units appear, but are inferior in all relevant aspects to existing units. At the very least, this is a waste of a unit slot and a good unit icon. If it is not possible to tweak a new unit into some useful role in the game,...

Re: AI scripting ideas

I would love some random component. Part of the ease by which an experienced player can beat the AI is its predictability. It will always run into the same trap - unless it is scripted to do something different. But even unscripted units should do something unexpected from time to time. There should...

On Axis side I won turn 22 in the same method. Great report, I only wish it wasn´t about me. :) Against these very...

Re: Panzer Corps Tournament 2018

I add an YES for Rush to Moscow. Given the size of the map, it provides a different play experience from all previous maps. Same is true for Moscow 41, which, in itself, is distinct enough from Rush to Moscow with regard to troop composition.
