Re: Am I screwed?

I agree that the Panzer 3 is a bit of a dead end. You could retire your Panzer 2 when it gets to 3* and wait until Tigers or Panthers are available, or convert it to a Panzer 4 . However, the Flammpanzer 2 should become available shortly after you get the special Panzer 2. They can be tricky to kee...

Re: Am I screwed?

I'm at Zhitomir deploy: 33213 p before upgrades etc. I think the prestige soft cap is trying to start. unless my math is wrong, I keep getting 49 points on some minor objective wins. did a test at Smolensk41 start a few times to check and if I place all my fighters at 13 strength on the map with oth...

Re: Am I screwed?

Stalingrad is what's been on my mind since I started the v1.25 rules. I had no problem with the classic v1.14 version rules. actually was boring playing v1.14 rules at FM and stopped playing the game at Stalingrad until recently reading NOSB's thread here. I am concerned about the prestige soft cap...

Re: Am I screwed?

Wouldnt waste money on new infantry, you will get more bonus inf along the way with plenty of heroes+experience... Five units doesn't sound enough in 1940, most likely he had lost some along the way. One or two extra would do. What i do not understand is the number of fighters - never had more than...

Re: Panzer Corps difficulty levels overview

You could try adjusting the Combat Random settings in the Advanced Tab. The middle setting (Dice chess) allows a variation of +/-2 from the predicted result. This allows reasonable variability while removing the more extreme results - eg 10 strong Polish Infantry all rolling 1% to hit, while your u...

Re: Am I screwed?

The PZ IV D's are not cutting it at Kharhov '42. I restarted scenario and upgraded them all to PZ IV F/2 's. Took me down to 28k ish prestige and will try scenario again. At least the upgrades to G variant won't be as expensive. Sold the two recon units to gain a little back. have you overstrengthe...

Re: Am I screwed?

The captured Polish 105mm gets at extra shots each attack compared with the 150mm due to higher Rate of Fire. With a bit of experience it supresses a lot on soft targets but doesn't kill so many. The heavier 150 has a lower rate of fire (80% I think) which means it is more likely to get kills but w...

Re: Am I screwed?

Re: Am I screwed?

My infantry all still have Opel Blitzes. The Airborne infantry have no motorized transport so I can drop them. If you surround an enemy fighter with 2 or more planes before you attack there is a swarm bonus. swarm: I forgot all about that with my fighters :idea: oh well I got them Polish fighters i...
