Re: Why Panzer Corps 2 will fail

Panzer corps 2 will be just a remake of panzer corps 1 : the same gameplay (with some improvements). what a pity, panzer corps 2 will just offer some campaigns (same than panzer corps 1 ) , the same multiplayer option and ... that's it. "A Pity!!!",,,What "A Pi...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

I can't speak for the strength or weaknesses of new Panzer Corps 2 AI yet, but I know how I'd like to proceed. I understand why people also want smarter and more challenging AI, but I have to be devil's advocate here and say that isn't really conductive to long campaigns, especially not Grand Campa...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

What was being discussed regarding "5 Shermans to take out a single Panther" ...was indeed on the 'Tactical-Scale', not the actual 'Game' or 'Operational-Scale'. In 'Reality' on the 'Tactical-Scale'...it did really take at least 5-6 Sherman-Tanks to take out a Single-Panther. Do a 'Google-Search' o...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

I'm sorry what exactly is even being debated anymore? Since tactical considerations that actually matter in tank-on-tank combat can't be replicated in a game like this, you have to generalize and basically make up arbitrary statistical differences for tank models based on whatever criteria you want...
