Re: Demotorise Your Core: Idea for Your Next Playthrough

That's tempting to consider. In my current campaign (on General) I'm dealing with huge prestige gains, much more than I'll realistically need and I've been thinking how to further offset that beyond the prestige sink events in a run with Slow Modernization and Retrograde one day, as unless there's a...

Re: The role of ammo?

I run into ammo issues more often than I thought. With my tendency to set up grand overruns where possible (unless it's more profitable to start forcing surrenders) my tanks use up their ammo really fast. At 1-2 ammo left AI often tries to aggressively target such units - making them use up remainin...

AO 1939 - Sarreguemines Starting Prestige (after purchases and replacements): 25361 https://i.ibb.co/5RwwmH0/9.jpg An early unique hero is a great bonus to take, especially that so far I have not been given many heroes I would consider high impact ones for tanks.

Re: AO Simple AAR - General Tassadar and his Little Tanks

Why deploy aircraft to Catalonia and take the risk? Many Republican forces patrol all over the map, could have lost your entire air force to an open airfield on a snowy turn. Oh well, some lessons just have to be learned the hard way. When the snow (or rain) starts to fall, it's time to start reser...

AO Spanish Civil War - Battle of the Ebro https://i.ibb.co/7YkJhsP/112.jpg An obvious yes to this idea. A talented fighter pilot will become the leader of I./JG 61 and in fact the entire JG 61.

Re: AO Simple AAR - General Tassadar and his Little Tanks

You are crushing it! I had the same feeling like you did here, this mission gave maybe a few more turns than it needed to. A challenge, I'd be honestly impressed if you can take the Ebro mission on without using that envelopment hero and get the bonus objective. I failed at that in my playthrough, ...

Re: What we'd like to see in DLC AO40 and 41...

1D - my own listing. There was a forum post where Kerensky himself alluded to that vague possibility, so I actually find it quite likely. :) 5D - seem like an interesting option to run a bonus optional scenario. 5A - looks really viable. My vote: 4B, 4C & 2C ( Vive la France ) Counted. Did I say 1D...

Re: AO Simple AAR - General Tassadar and his Little Tanks

Game loved you on heroes at the start. Envelopment and Fast Rebase are both really good. Since then a bit more blaah though. What does Prudent do? I don't think I've got that one yet. Going by the name, just 'no ambushes' or something similar? Prudent gives a defense bonus for each point of lost st...

Prediction - Spitfire as a gift unit for CP (either in a Channel Islands scenario or after Dunkirk).

Re: Commendations, Caches, and Collectables

Units that are un-acquirable are far more interesting. German prototypes, enemy aircraft, enemy prototypes, or truly unique units like the Verjada 2 are the real cherries on top of the Commendation system. Definitely expect to see more exotic rewards and less meh ones, because it's just a good thin...
