Re: I MULTIPLAYER TOURNAMENT PANZERCORPS 2

It is probably pretty telling that there is going to be specially created scenarios just to make a multiplayer competition seem fair. Random generator might sound good in principle but it can't be balanced. There was so many really great multiplayer scenarios in PC1 that were so well balanced we cou...

Re: New general traits

I would definitely be curious to hear if players who find hero combos to be game breakingly problematic will start using the '1 hero per unit' trait. I mean, before you could just enforce the rule on yourself, but now it's actually baked into the game and not just a home brew self imposed rule... J...

Re: Finland without Finnish?!?

I want to play with my own core and not auxiliaries. What would a few Finn units have added to the scenario? I would much rather attack and defend with my own units. Anything else will be mostly used as cannon fodder or not used at all..

Re: Hero abilities tier list

Exactly. Moreover, you aren't guaranteed to get any of those heroes in a campaign. I'm nearly through my historical campaign in the base game and I've never gotten a hero with Envelopment, Overwhelming Attack, First Strike, or Rapid Fire. You probably had a lot more fun than if you did get them.. S...

Re: AO 1939 review and remarks

After importing two cores from SCW I was a bit disappointed with how easy the 39 dlc was. I thought I would give it a go starting with a new core. Was a little surprised to start with a decent amount of exp on my new force and 5 heroes as well. The game has become a lot more enjoyable though. Just f...

Re: SCW Ebro - need ideas

Listen to the briefing.. Don't get sucked in by trying to go for the bonus before getting the mission objectives. The creators are evil for putting bonus objectives in the game knowing we will always try and get them. By about turn 10-15 it's all about sitting behind a river skipping turns, which pr...

Going first has never been a bigger advantage. Nothing player two can do to stop it, they should be able to counter it.

Re: Akkula's Multiplayer Suggestions

I think we need bigger maps. In PC1 maps like Hylan Valley, Steamroller v Steal, Return to Kiev, pretty much all of them. We pushed one area and defended another. Now it seems like there is always a mass fight in the middle and we can't flank, and can't exploit weak spots. Because the maps are small...

Re: Which hero is best suited for which unit?

Liberator on fast moving ground recon units. Provocator is actually useful. I had a 15 strength tank (Pz IV then Panther) with this trait. I could carefully escort weaker units, like pioneer on the open or AA guns which the AI finds attractive, with this tank and the AI would systematically end up ...

Re: Some thoughts on Bonus Objectives, General Traits, and some units

Never had a problem with Fear of the Unknown and think it is one of the easier ones to get around.. Can be annoying after bad weather when there is a fog between your front line and airbases. But and I don't know if it was intended or not but you can re-base planes to clear the fog in between them. ...

Multiplayer Crashes

Don't know what is happening but every time I try to play MP the game crashes. Have verified game files. Restarted multiple times.

Is there anything I need to do? Didn't happen at all before the patch .

Campaign plays fine..

Re: Game always hangs/crashes during enemy turn replay in multiplayer

The thing that worries me is, can the mods see people are not crashing the game on purpose halfway through a turn to get a better outcome. But that we just want to see what our opponent did on their turn.Can we be banned for multiple restarts even if we havn't moved any troops?

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #4

Not too sure about the AT changes. A lot would depend on the AI, but I can see myself having a front line of Stugs or partisans backed by an AT and so just baiting the AI. Just worried that tanks might lose effectiveness. Why have a tank in the front lines when you can have a throw away unit worth n...
