Re: Retreat should not save you from Ambush

Perhaps they could cancel each other. If the unit with the retreat ability is ambushed and its retreat chance occurs, it stops and takes no damage from the ambush.

Re: Ranged units better than melee units?

Into the Sunken Lands. As always, this is largely a case of working out how to deal with the opening assault (someone has likened it to Omaha Beach and it does feel like the invasion is going to be crushed before it starts!). Having so many ranged units, including 2x Troll Hurlers makes this much e...

Clanhold of Machnar
Many upgrades to armoured slingers

Owin's Ford
An easy win
More slingers

Krell's Landing
Easy again - even all the enemy bats and pegasi are no match for my arrows! :)

Now, it's into the Sunken Lands and it is there that I anticipate a harder fight...

Re: Ranged units better than melee units?

The Old Road (Restart Mission due to Falirson being killed) Upgrades and recruits still only missile or spear. The Clanmeet (Another Restart due to Falirson being killed - he's a good meat-shield but tends to draw a lot of fire!) Lots of upgrades and new traits. Malric's Vale (I have never played t...

Re: Ranged units better than melee units?

I am finding that being able to mete out damage and not take any in return is a huge bonus. It also means there is no unit replenishment (or very little) at the end of each scenario. I should say I am playing this on easy, so perhaps the reduction of Warrior mode difficulty is playing a part, too, b...

Re: Ranged units better than melee units?

I am trying the missile approach and this is my first few results. The aim is not to remove all units that melee based but to upgrade them to ranged or spear weapons when it's appropriate. The heroes will be my meat shields - they work pretty well like that anyway as they always heal all wounds (unl...

Ranged units better than melee units?

I am seeing some real advantages to having ranged units rather than melee units and am considering starting a campaign with only ranged units. - they have a range 2, so have more available hexes from which to launch an attack - spears do not allow a reply attack from the enemy - they can attack flyi...

Chain Lightning

Chain Lightning II seems to require 4 targets to be able to function, rather than *up to* 4 targets. This seems to be a nerf when Chain Lightning can be used with 2 targets. I had 2 swamp dragons next to each other that I needed to use Chain Lightning on but couldn't because there were no other targ...

Editor?

Is there any plan to include an editor (scenario and/or campaign) at some stage? I'd assume the units would need to be selected from those already in the game but being able to create new scenario maps, place treasure and add dialogues would be great IMO.

Easy mode?

I realise that my approach to gaming will be different to others but I have always thought of Easy Mode as being to introduce a game's mechanics, get an idea of the story and how units interact etc etc in a fairly relaxed way. It is not a walk in the park but it is meant to be pretty easy and not st...

Re: Teamwork in Panzer Corps 2

We haven't ever seen that in a Panzer General/Corps game. That is, cooperative gameplay. There was the ability to play 2 v 2 online in PzG2. It was a lot of fun when it wasn't being a nightmare (synching issues mainly but also it took a long time to play as each player went in turn). That sort of t...

Re: Maelstrom (US campaign) OCT 2012

I have updated the links in the OP and will endeavour to check out the issues that have been raised in this thread. I'm very sorry for my absence but I will try to remember how to do all the campaign and scenario modding stuff so as to fix the main issues.

Hi El_Condoro, welcome to Panzer Corps 2 forum. It has been a while. :) I've just tried to import some scenarios from Maelstrom campaign into PzC2 editor, and most of them worked but a few did not, so I'll need to check out what happened there.

Tank attack range?

Although I was involved in the early stages of PzC, I have come late to the table with its successor. From what I have seen so far, I will certainly be buying it when it comes out - a very elegant system it seems (from screen shots ahead of live game play demos - I looked for a sample of game play, ...

IP address locked out for 10 minutes

Never seen this message until today. MP turn.

Why would this happen and is it a problem or do I just need to wait, literally, 10 minutes?

[Edit] I have since been able to play the turn.

No. Thanks but it's more trouble than it's worth - we will start the game again. No problem. Thanks for your help. Cheers
