Can't ANYBODY offer strategy tips???

I just lost Operation Achilles with only 49 H&M points. I lost the previous two scenarios as well.

See my previous post as far as what I'm doing to raise H&M. I'm doing what I believe I should do to raise the H&M score, but it's not working.

Can anybody suggest strategy?

Re: need strategy tips

Repatriating only gives PP- not H&M. I'm up to turn 51 in Operation Achilles, and my H&M score is only 49. I have never gotten above 52. I'm constantly delivering UN Aid to villages, visiting villages and building waterworks. The intimidation score is low. How do I raise that score? Isn't there anyo...

need strategy tips

Since I don't see any strategy tips posted, I was wondering how I can beat missions that need H&M above a certain number. I'm up to turn 43 in Operation Achilles, and although six of nine villages show the US flag and three show the Afghan flag, my H&M score is 48. I deliver UN aid whenever possible...

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

So how do you hold out against this onslaught? My situation looked similar to yours, but after losing over 7 core units, I surrendered.

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

My original complaint was that entrenchment/close terrain had no defensive effect for my units. Soviet armor was able to do heavy damage on my entrenched/infantry units even when the armor was attacking from a river into a city hex. This was especially apparent against my auxiliary infantry and it w...

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

I know this is Berlin and it's the end of the war, but regardless of how well you've played up until this point (conquering Poland, Norway, the Low Countries, France, even taking Moscow) it has no effect on later campaigns/scenarios. You still wind up here.

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

On colonel difficulty I was able to progress to the Berlin 45 scenario, but this is where I got stuck. I had 7 Tiger2s, 4 JadgTigers, 1 Jadgpanther, 2 Maus, 2 Panthers, 9 core Infantry, 6AA, and 10 Artillery, in addition to my air units, and still I was getting my ass kicked. I learned my lesson abo...

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

Good advice about river defenses. Thanks. All the other possible errors you say I might be doing I'm not; I had 4 core AA units, a couple of Elefants, and a few Jadgtigers, and Jadgpanthers. I also use fighting retreats and I pull back to better positions and let the enemy come to me. And they keep ...

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

I'm going to have to study this when I have a little more time, but questions I have right off the bat: How can you defend cities with armor since they get killed by infantry due to their close defense rating in city hexes? I can't make out some of your units when they're identified only by leader n...

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

Thanks, brother. I searched all the AARs and could find no text or video playthroughs of the Berlin 45 scenario. Not even from the YouTube posters with videos for every other scenario up to 44. (No surprise. My guess is that most players had the same experience I had.) The DLC Grand Campaign is so m...

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

I appreciate your advice. I do retreat back to better defensible positions, but with the insane number of Soviet units in this scenario, the locations I vacate are quickly filled by dozens of units, so I still have to fight off too many units- and when they breakthrough somewhere- my units are toast...

Re: DLC Campaign 45 East rant

I had highly experienced infantry and heavy tank/anti-tank units defending river crossings backed by artillery, and by turn five the Soviets had broken through. And this is on colonel difficulty. Once I started losing my experienced core units, I was reinforcing with 43 infantry in the cities, but t...

DLC Campaign 45 East rant

OK, it's the end of the war and the Germans lost. I get it. But throw the manual and the tips and tricks out the window; there's no strategy here; it's just a slaughter. The Soviets have literally dozens of top units to my poor core of 45. These are 4 and 5 exp units, too, some of which I've had sin...

Re: DLC '44 #10: Vilna

I've been reading this forum for years- the tips, strategies, etc., and watching the videos, but the fact is that there are very few videos done for the '43 - '45 scenarios. I've watched Braccada's videos but he doesn't have any for the DLC campaigns, and Deducter's videos don't have the soft cap. I...

Re: DLC '44 #10: Vilna

I mean no disrespect, but I find claims of winning a DV in less than 30 turns on higher difficulty very hard to believe. I have logged hundreds of hours playing the DLC from '39 to '44 East on colonel difficulty, and I can barely squeak out a MV. After 17 turns, I have secured 8 objectives but the S...

can't see NE corner of the map

When I move a unit to attack Voronezh, the combat box comes up and blocks my other units in the activated space so I can't move additional units into Voronezh. How can I move the combat box out of the way?

Re: Soft Cap

Oh, boy.

I'm trying to put all these strategy tips to good use, but I just won a MV on a scenario that I usually win a DV (Reims.) I also lost an SE unit and a core unit INF I was trying to train. :(

Haha Goose_2 is too modest about his own role in this. I must admit that his teachings together with those of von_choker, have taught me the ropes about this game.

Re: Soft Cap

I don't think I'll ever play on the higher difficulties because Colonel is insane enough after 42.

I lost my SE PzIVD during the French counterattack at Amiens. And it was overstrength!

Is there a link to night phoenix?

Re: Soft Cap

I'm trying to follow what you're saying but I'm still in the dark. Main question: what do I do about losses during the scenario to my units? Elite replacements, regular, or just pull them away from the battle? I'm losing core units, or having them severely damaged during the scenario. What do you me...
