Re: POTZBLITZ V4.80 (beta), JUL 11th

Since we're talking about changes to the game, not just bugs. I'm not quite happy with the way Italy enters the war, more specifically with the Austrian events to transfer territory. Right now, there is no reason whatsoever to hand over South Tyrol. Either the CP are winning, which means that Italy ...

Re: POTZBLITZ V4.74 (beta), JUL 6th 0:10 AM MET

What exactly are the requirements for the North Sea blockade? I've had Germany being blockaded even though the UK had surrendered. Is it possible that the event only checks for naval presence and not whether the UK is at war?

Re: POTZBLITZ V4.6 (beta), JUNE 22th

I have another bug for you.

For some strange reason Italy joined the Central Powers in my game. Trouble is, Italy still acquires collapse points whenever a member of the Entente, i.e. the opposing alliance, surrenders.

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

As much as I like PC, there are a few issues (although I don’t have a solution for all of them). 1. One stat to rule them all. Defense is paramount as you have to minimize losses. As a consequence, IS-2s are vastly superior to T-34s which in turn leads to very unrealistic force compositions. If I la...

Re: M3a1 soviet scout car

This is not a bug, the program does exactly what it is supposed to do. The *tank* destroyer Elefant has a woefully low soft attack and the M3 Scout Car is a soft target. Consequently, you don't do any damage.

Re: 1914 as the Central Powers

I've once managed to take Paris before Christmas, can't remember which turn exactly that is though. But for that to work, you have to be very aggressive and rely a bit on stupid AI decisions. When I'm not as bold, France usually gets into serious trouble in Spring 1915 which forces Italy to transfer...

Re: Feedback on the latest version

Air force is only OPed as long as you have not researched any AA capabilities. Once your ground units can actually shoot back, air units become very weak. They will still inflict losses, but air units are more expensive than ground units so it's a net loss for the attacker. This is of course ridicul...

Re: starting units Serbia and AH

AFAIK, AI countries don't receive extra units. Are you really sure they had that many units right at the beginning of the game? I've never seen that. More likely, AH has either built additional units or transferred then from other fronts during the next few turns. You can do the same thing. Build so...

Re: Great War Stukas? B-52's?

The problem is fundamentally that early on ground units have no air attack value. Consequently, air units can attack them with impunity. As the war progresses, ground units do gain air attacks and attacking them will become much less useful. I agree, this is a bit weird. It should be the other way r...

Re: Combat prognosis broken?

The prognosis isn't broken, the thing is that the random part of the next combat is saved as well. Consequently, re-loading won't change anything. If your are desperate to get a certain result in a specific battle, you have to first attack somewhere else and only then attack at the crucial point of ...

Re: Current State of the AI

In my opinion the AI is pretty good as long as the front remains static. As long as there are no holes in it, you can expect stiff resistance. However, when it comes to Maneuver warfare, there are some deficiencies. The AI is bad at preventing encirclement, which are very deadly in this game. It sim...

Re: Harder choice?

Neither one is exactly hard, but I think Battle of the Bulge is less easy than V Sites. Keep in mind that the choice you make will influence what scenarios you get to play for the remainder of the campaign. You can only try to take Berlin and subsequently try to fight off the Soviets if you choose V...

Re: Operation Cobra

Don't be too upset about your troubles. Cobra is by far the most difficult scenario in the whole campaign. In the north you must be very careful. The German forces there are much stronger than yours. Initially, you should pull back al little, otherwise your forces will be obliterated (you've probabl...

Re: Basic Questions - Move Type, Supply, etc

If certain units are moved onto airfields (primarily Infantry) and there is an appropriate transport available (DFS 230?), you can air transport them to a friendly airfield . They cannot drop like paras can. This is not entirely true. You can disembark all units over enemy airfields as well. You do...

Re: Sherman tanks - useless?

Ground defence is by far the most important unit stat in this game. Units with poor defence get killed very easily which is very bad in a campaign game because you have to replace it with an inexperienced unit. Even if the unit does survive, you still have to spend atrocious amounts of prestige to r...

Re: Any tips for holding Serbia?

I think it is possible to hold Serbia. The only times I suffered substantial losses against the AI was when I became overly adventurous and tried to invade Austria myself and got encircled in the process. The key to success, I think, is to be bold with Russia. Aggressive moves against Lvov and Przem...
