This is great work! I am really hoping for more scenarios in the future! Especially the Japanese tank looks outstanding, keep up the good work. It seems the Chinese don't have their proper transports yet, though? Also, it seems that if the name of a unit is too long to fit in its box at purchase scr...

AFAIK, the T34 "on paper" was unbelievably superior to the German tanks in '41. Only on paper. Have you ever had the experience with rough Russian production quality? That's why I explicitely said "on paper". Because that data is what you have to use for a game. That's not "glorifying the tank", th...

Taking fuel shortages out of the equation, I would take 10 Panthers over 10 T-34s any day... :oops: Got me there... I agree, I actually think the Panther is the best tank of World War 2. It's just debatable whether the Panther is really a "medium" tank. After all, it's as heavy as the IS2. Maybe I ...

I thought the same actually. Imho initiative should be a bit lower - having to manually rotate the turret gotta be bad for offensive - on defensive as you are static its propably not so bad. But in the end its just an abstracted value of a game anyway :P and there are a lot of other unrealistic stat...

BTW, what is the deal with the Mark IVJ ?? Slightly higher stats that the H but the fuel jumps from like 50 or so up to 80! Typo? Seems odd as the tank used the same chassis. The J was more or less identical do the H, but instead of the generator that was used to rotate the turret, an additional fu...

I also think the T34 is too weak. Not in terms of game balance (so I think it's not so important), but compared to its strength in reality. AFAIK, the T34 "on paper" was unbelievably superior to the German tanks in '41. Early Panzer III and IV tanks stood no chance, only with the long-barelled 50mm ...

I think what you described is exactly what makes this game GOOD, not bad. If every unit was destroyed in the first (or second) attack, then all stats etc would be fairly useless. Remember that you can lower enemy initiative by placing several units around an enemy. Talking about tediousness - don’t ...

This is just an example. I can't enter it in any of the trigger condition fields. I can enter it in the text fields (unit/terrain names), though.

Could it have something to do with my German keyboard?

I'd assume though that future additions (whether payed or for free) won't make the campaign longer but add a new campaign and/or scenarios. After all, the campaign is balanced for the current setup. I think it is long enough anyway ;) I'd rather have more smaller campaigns as add-ons. You may be in...

Thanks! While I'm at it one small thing:

Can't you give the Panzer II a correct firing animation? It's the one tank that just doesn't seem to fit for me... giving it the animation of the patrol boats would be perfect

Small question, I just drop it in here... when I use the two-button mouse setting, how do I access the unit stats page that pops up when you right-click in one-button mouse setting?

I'd have preferred it if upgrading would be at least something like new - (old/2) price. That and, as a compensation lowered experience (to simulate crews having to get used to new tanks etc) would have been perfect imho. But it's not so bad the way it is - at least now there is a reason to keep you...

How does it compare to Panzer Corps?

No, I don't mean "which game is better". This is subjective anyway. (Well, feel free to tell me what YOU find better) I mean: is Battlefield Academy equally complex compared to Panzer Corps? Not only regarding rules, but also size of maps, units, combat in general etc? Or is it a lot simpler? Becaus...

First of all, great job everyone who was involved in making this game! I didn't expect such a thoroughly polished game, no bugs, visually awesome (I will never play Panzer General again), for me everything is perfect regarding the game itself. However, I have to play at a low resolution simply becau...
