Re: Surrender mechanic

I love the surrender aspect of gameplay, and earning prestige for doing so. It is a tactic that seperates the men from the boys, please do not lose this aspect of the game. It forces a player to learn the what I call the hedge hog defense...meaning set up your units in such a way that they have som...

Re: Surrender mechanic

I think it comes down to this: fun and gameplay mechanics. Surrendering a unit is fun especially when it's pinned by friendly troops. It's relatively rare in the game to completely surround an enemy. What's not fun is if it moves back to safety behind the line three hexes deep and replenishes fully...

Re: Game always hangs/crashes during enemy turn replay in multiplayer

try loading the game up fully. Then exiting the game. Then loading the game up again. Then exiting the game. Then on the 3rd load you should be able to see the replay. This issue happens to many different set ups and this solution may not work for you but it does for me. Do not try and do the repla...

Re: Screen Freezing at Beginning of MP Turns

What is happening? I am trying to play an MP battle with my friend and every time I log in I can't see his turns. He can't see mine, either. The screen was freezing at the start of our turns and now it just sticks on the grey log-in screen and I hear all the noises of battle but can't see anything....

Re: Opponents side "A" - multiplayer

I was wondering about this as well already but haven't tried yet... G could be Germany and S could be Soviet Union as common belligerents? Oh snap, you are right. G might mean Germany not only Great Britain :/ For "S" letter I can't find any other equivalent than Soviets though :-) I also was think...

Re: Prestige in MP scenarios

Well, additional/official points of view are always appreciated, of course. The above is what I/we experienced while playing, I am not aware of much else at this point... However, there are also special triggers for more (or a bulk of) prestige (either for you or your opponent), like in the Ardenne...

Re: Prestige in MP scenarios

Thanks guys, what you say seem very reasonable, though I noticed the "I think" part :-)
Can we get some dev/official clarification?
I think many players would appreciate it

Re: Why No Pacific Campaign?

Conversely, the fact that there's one guy out there who says he loves game X does not make game X good. It simply makes it good in that one guy's mind. Hell there's someone out there who loves Panzer Strategy and that game is an awful Russian rip-off. Cream rises to the top- if you make 10 games th...

Prestige in MP scenarios

I found some topics about how is prestige calculated in single player/campaign.
How is it in multiplayer skirmish (balanced) games?
-Is it per turn depending on the cities controlled?
-Or is it just per city cap?
-Or for destroying units?
-Anything else I haven't mentioned?

Re: Why No Pacific Campaign?

That's because it's vastly better. I mean if these games were in different categories like one being strategy and one being real-time shooter, you could argue that popularity is affected by the size of the target audience. But since they're literally both WW2 turn-based board games they appeal to t...

Re: Why No Pacific Campaign?

As others have said, PzC is weak in navy. It can still be fun, however. Orkney Islands and Reykyavik are two great naval scenarios from the Sealion campaign pack. So they still could have made Pacific Corps if they wanted to. Some suggest that they were trying to somehow protect Order of Battle whi...

Opponents side "A" - multiplayer

Does that mean Axis or Allies? I'm mighty confused.
Also, there are sometimes other letters like "S" or"G". I guess that G can be a Great Britain? But which side is A on eastern front I have no idea.

Chindits can't land on any of their designated landing zones (ouch!).
They can land on regular allied airfields normally.

v1.2 available in first post in my multi thread. Soviet air units start at 5 strength. Removed Soviet AA units. Removed a number of German Flak reinforcements. Replaced airstrips with airfields. limiting supply to 10 which equals to about 3 air units inside. This makes for a cleaner map. Added tran...
