Re: Mistakes vere made, mein Fuhrer - Endsieg Review and Discuss

The hummel is quite a good alternative to K17 as it has only 1 less inf/mech attack values and costs 1 more cp, but much more mobility, durability, and 5 hex range, making it a very versatile option for both the defensive and offensive scenarios that Endsieg offers. Yes, that and the self propelled...

Re: Mistakes vere made, mein Fuhrer - Endsieg Review and Discuss

I see no exploitation problem in any of them. They both have their strengths and weaknesses, and no more exploitable than in example all inf and AT, or whatever other nondiverse strategy a player could adopt. Neither are the one or the other absolutely necessary or a sure way to win all encounters. ...

Re: IS OOB really and truely dead?

I bought myself Sandstorm and Endsieg for Christmas and they seem basically okay , but if I can throw a gripe into the playpen I'd say most scenarios are far too big and long. In fact that's my main criticism of all the other OOB's DLC's too, as playing them is like wading through mud. At the momen...

Re: Given up - for now (partly my own fault), but with reasons & discussion.

I commented on the preset core before, and for me it ruins the continuation aspect of the game, which I love and which I think are what most players are here for. At least it was like that in the PC Grand Campaign.

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

I dont think the Caucasus thing is a technical issue, I just think that´s its plain impossible. In the deployment phase you cant airlift anything other than paratroopers, and the same thing applies on turn one. Or am I missing something? I dont believe the Malta difficulty issue is just a kondi obje...

Re: Given up - for now (partly my own fault), but with reasons & discussion.

I wouldn´t advise tinkering too much with the current levels, but adding a few couldn´t hurt. I would prefer a different approach to secondary objectives. Make more, make the hardest more rewarding and the more easy ones less rewarding. That would make the game more challenging in my opinion and the...

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

In the Caucasus mission it doesn´t seem possible to airlift units across the mountains. You can do paratroopers, but nothing else. In the mission before there´s some kind of hiccup in the primary objective. You can get 5 objectives and it greenflags the objective, but reverts to red and failed at mi...

OOB and the new Strategic Command

Has anyone tried both and how do they compare?

Would a player who loves OOB (and before that PC) enjoy and find the new Strategic Command similar in gameplay/-style?

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Yes, more Italian CP´s should definitely be detracted from the German. I think about 20 land cp and 6-9 air cp should be appropriate for the scenarios where this problem arises (around mission 14-15 and forward as I recall without having tjecked). Also plz have a look at Malta. I looks like a fun mi...

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

The problem with Italian CP vs the original is that in the original you could place all the Italian units you´d like within the allowed units for a mission. Thats not possible when you have low or no Italian CP´s. You build up quite a nice Italian core and then its disappointing not being able to us...

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

My second play through of this campaign and I am currently at mission 16. Highest difficulty as usual. Very fun and challenging (read my earlier notes though). Crete is too difficult. The defending brits are way too aggressive and destroy most units before they get of the beach. Also the British air...

Re: Mistakes vere made, mein Fuhrer - Endsieg Review and Discuss

I guess this has been touched upon elsewhere but I´ve experienced some grave errors regarding specs toward the end. I got the a-bomb for free without picking the spec and cant choose the E-series spec. Hopefully this gets fixed soon and hopefully the E-series wont just be available in the last missi...

Re: FUTURE of ORDER OF BATTLE

Hopefully future DLC´s will be longer than the usual 12 and/or minded/connected for a longer campaign. I think it would be a real waste to have US, BRIT and RUS campaigns be over in just 12, even 16, missions. But I also really hope that the developers aren´t finished with the pacific theater. Havin...

Re: EndSieg - West Front. Any Ground Attack Aircraft Suggestions

I agree that all (jet) fighters are the best and most effective - unfortunately. I´ve used the big strategic bomber with a +2 defensive hero in a few missions just to have some diversity. I dont recall it being targeted that much, if at all. I always give it one (jet) fighter (with the +2/+2 ground ...

Re: Mistakes vere made, mein Fuhrer - Endsieg Review and Discuss

I don´t want endless massive battles either I was reporting only in regards to the difficulty level. I did find the cp cap a bit low when compared to Panzerkrieg though.

Best and "easiest" fix would in my opinion be more enemy units on Field Marshall and less xp carry-over.

Re: Mistakes vere made, mein Fuhrer - Endsieg Review and Discuss

A quick fix while still keeping the highest difficulty level "high" could be lowering the amount of xp that are transferred. Maybe max 1,5 stars from Blitzkrig to Panzerkrieg and 2,5 stars from Panzerkrieg to Endkrieg It's a good idea, but it would have to be implemented extra, so unfortunately not...

Re: Mistakes vere made, mein Fuhrer - Endsieg Review and Discuss

Is it just me or is this DLC not that hard? It doesn´t quite feel like the crucible of the German war. I play on Field Marshall with an imported core from Panzerkrieg.

Re: Mistakes vere made, mein Fuhrer - Endsieg Review and Discuss

Pre-set core would ruin the continuation aspect which I find absolutely critical and the most fun of both this game and Panzer Corps.
