Re: Favourite units in each unit class

Anti-air: SdKfz 7/2 - I know I “should” say 8.8cm FlaK 36 and I “know” it is the better unit but I always struggle with towed units. SdKfz 7/2 is very unspectacular and not super effective but since it is self-propelled I find it quite useful since it can move move with the battlegroups and protect...

Re: How to use 8.8cm FlaK 36 to best effect?

Well there's no magic, you use it very carefully. The thing is, the 88 is far, far better than any AT the Germans have, at least until 1942 when the Stug 3 series comes out. Even after that, it still has advantages- tank destroyers have virtually no soft attack and so basically can't fight back agai...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

As we have discussed quite a few very interesting ‘off topics’ in this dev diary #8 (it was originally about 'naval warfare')… I wanted to ask: what will be the topic of the next dev diary (and when will it be released)? Thanks! :D They've been pretty consistent about sending them out monthly. As f...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

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 Campaign long. If you play chess and trade down pieces the entire game and win with 3 pieces left against 1 enemy......

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

"Only holding on" is not boring at all, think about the late 1945 scenarios Yes, it is boring. Think about the 1944 scenarios such as Mogilev where you can hold the bridges north and south of the town indefinitely using 2 units each. Or Kiev, where you can defend one of the bridges the entire scena...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

3. the fact that Soviets used propaganda to fool their nation is one thing (it was used for its own citizens and for subordinate countries, nobody cared about it in the west), but the fact that American soldiers complained about everything is a different matter A serious question. Do you think that...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

In the past 5 years I guess I played the PC Vanilla, DLC's and PK numerous times - and have only recently started the Soviet Corps Campaign. What I thought strange sometimes, was the fact that German defensive scenarios (beating off Russian attacks) in fact gave victory when gaining ground instead ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

I dont want to be included in a "I want it realistic" crowd" and wish to be met in a personal manner. Your complaint is 100% about realism. You've never tried to argue that ships having a slight vulnerability to infantry is bad for gameplay, just that you find it unrealistic. You've also chosen to ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

There is no need to stress the point that my request seems rediculous to you. Where did I say it was ridiculous? Let's stick to what I actually said. It's a very common mistake to think that units in PG / PzC / PzC2 represent a single instance of said thing the way a zergling unit in Starcraft is o...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

In the closing turns of the Suez Canal scenario a British carrier Lies remains lying idle next to a shore hex. I used an infantry unit to damage it for 1 point each turn gaining experience. Silly but I took the chance. Aircraft carriers were, historically, exceedingly fragile units because they lit...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Please remove the silly possibility of an infantry unit of damaging a capital ship. It always amazes me how often the "I want it realistic" crowd actually doesn't know what is realistic. Often it comes down to a lack of imagination- picturing an infantry unit as a couple boys with rifles instead of...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

A few of them drive me nuts however. Like the orientation of the ships and the difference in damage they inflict based on that distance. Yeah, I don't see this particular mechanic adding to either the historical nature of the game nor the tactics. The problem is that capital ships have movement tha...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Damage model All ships are single entities, and their strength number indicates hit points. Reduced hit points do not automatically reduce the ship’s firepower. Larger ships, like battleships and heavy cruisers, have more hit points to reflect their higher survivability. All damage done to ships fa...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Supporting this question: repairing a badly "wounded" ship of any sort could take longer than a scenario may last... I agree with this concern, but I would put forth it is the responsibility of the individual scenario and content creators (hi) to properly design scenarios that take the mechanics of...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

One other thing- why are you guys obsessed with turning the hexes off? I get that it makes screenshots "pretty" but if you're taking to an audience that already plays the game why not screenshot it the way it will actually be playable?

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

A wonderful set of changes. How does the capital ship supporting fire work? Ideally all capital ships in range of the attacker should attack it, not just those adjacent to the target. Which orientations are considered most favorable? I presume you mean the defender should be pointed straight at the ...

Re: How to get minor Axis country units in my core in GC?

You don't. You can have Italians in your corps in Africa by buying them the usual way. All other campaigns restrict you to buying the nation you are playing.

Hello All! The holiday season is upon us, the year 2018 is almost at the end, and it is a good time to pause, look back and summarize what was achieved, what were our successes and failures. It's time to post diary #8 focused on naval combat. I realize it hasn't been a whole month, but diary 7 didn...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Christmas special! Dev Diary #7

Another request: PC has a wonderful chart showing the upgrades possible and at what date - dont know who made it, but thanks, I have used it many times... :-) Since you only linked to the German one, I take it you have never used the ones for the other nations? You poor deprived man. Here's the Ita...
