Re: AT units pros and cons

I think of the AT as similar to the knight in chess. It would be great to have all queens...but you probably won't get that playing at higher levels so you need knights to screen and bust down support. It is just cheaper to use. I use my Marders for rear support - finish off the low strength targets...

Does a spotting hero help you launch an AMBUSH on defense? I didn't ever think about that.

Re: Mega-campaign: Challenging or an exercise in futility?

I am an old PG player, have played the new Panzer Corps through and am up to Stalingrad in DLC. Here are some of my random thoughts on the futility issue. I am totally blown away by the variety of scenarios in the DLC. You have to dust off every strategy and tactic in the book to play through it. Wh...

Re: Bug? - No special units in GC 40

Renaming a unit in the game doesn't affect the name the computer uses, so it shouldn't be that. However, you have to deploy the Recon Rudel in the first Russia scenario (Minsk 41 I think) otherwise you don't get the combat version. It turns out it was a patch issue. I did the installs in the wrong ...

Re: Why did I fail this map?

Thanks for the advice about staying on the airfield. I probably would have moved them over to a close defense hex. I almost felt sorry for the conscripts by the end of this scenario.

Re: Very upset.

Well, my two cents worth on the whole subject, I played all the old Panzer General games, played to Lake Balaton on the vanilla campaign and am now about to finish Streets of Moscow. Even though I have played a lot, I am not a hardcore player. I don't calculate out orders of battle etc. I just try t...

Re: Vyazma in GC41

I had fun with this and got a DV in turn 18 on General level. I think I did get lucky with the rain - I only took two fighters and two Stukas. The rain always seemed to come when the Russian Air Force showed up in mass. Getting the first turn on clear weather helped a lot. In the first phase, I sent...

Re: Can't Access Saved Games after 1.22

I figured it might come to that. I have all the keys so that should be doable. What is the correct sequence of events for that? I am playing the PC Wehrmacht version. Do you think I should go ahead and re-install that first - and then reinstall the DLC? And do I need to install the patch after the D...

Re: Lake Balaton - what's the trick?

I have one thing to add...buy some cheap towed anti-tank guns and randomly place them up front to slow the hordes down. They will be quickly destroyed but it will buy you time to better organize your forces. As they get picked off, you can deploy your fresh experienced core units. It is definitely n...

Re: Can't Access Saved Games after 1.22

Yes, I am playing in the same account. I have backed up that directory for safety too. I tried pulling up a "New Game" and playing a little and then saving it. It saved somewhere - but not in the standard My Games\Panzer General\Save directory as previously. I didn't have time to figure out where it...

Can't Access Saved Games after 1.22

I have been playing Panzer Corp since Christmas without any problems. I updated to 1.22 and I can't access my old games. When I go to the Main Menu screen and select Load Games, I get an empty list. I can still see all the folders with the games in My Documents so they didn't go missing. Also, I am ...

Re: Bug? - No special units in GC 40

I have a similar problem with Rudel in GC 41 but I don't think it is patch related. I get all the captured tanks, I got the rail gun at Minsk, I got another Attack+2 hero...but Rudel doesn't upgrade to the attack version of Rudel. I played it twice I was wondering if it was because I renamed the uni...

Re: Panzercorps Special Units

Oleh Dir is a one unit blitz. I overstrength send him out with a recon unit and some occasional fighter support. He cleans out towns, artillery positions, AA. Nothing seems to get in the way. He made it to Minsk in Minsk 41 by turn 5. If he just had extra ammo.

Re: Wassigny question.

The first time I played this scenario, I tried to bomb the recon unit because I didn't recognize it. I didn't figure it out till it was surrounded by French tanks and lit up with the "next" button. Had to play that one again.

Re: bagration

I had a somewhat different approach. I went for the old-fashioned Ottoman cannon fodder defense. Instead of putting all my experienced units (some with two heroes) up on the front line, I just bought a bunch of cheap stuff to burn some time while my fighters took control of the skies and my infantry...

Re: Lodz

My mistake with this scenario - being a new player - was thinking I had to occupy the bridge hexes through the first attack waves. I burned up a lot of prestige rotating in fresh infantry. Then I figured out to pull back a hex to defensible territory. I played a second time and let the computer do a...
