Re: Pavlov's House

The forces defending Pavlov's House blocked the entire southern wing of my city offensive for 5 days. I had to divert much of army rooting them out of their little hidy-holes. Very few fortresses have been able to do that to me. So somewhere around 30 people (according to that wiki) blocked half of ...

Re: Urban Warfare - PZIIIN/Pioniers

If you get your paras any form of transport then they deploy on ground. If they dont have transports and air transport is available they start in the air. Many thanks for the speedy reply. What do you do if you want to start them in the air in a subsequent scenario? Deselect the transport and "upgr...

Re: Urban Warfare - PZIIIN/Pioniers

I have not been impressed with pioneers in Panzer Corps. Pioneers were awesome in previous versions of this game. In this game - not so much. They are slow and I see little point in ignoring rugged defense if you are going to take 3-4 damage on every attack you make anyway. I have much better succes...

Re: DLC 42 Feedback

I completed DLC 42 this weekend. I play on field marshal and it feels to be the right difficulty. I had a lot of fun with the early defensive battles. They were wonderful. I did something wrong during the Assault of Sevastopol. I only lost one core unit while getting a DV, but all of my units took a...

Re: How many SE Units can I have?

If I remember correct, besides not taking up a core slot, SE units have an additional +1 attack and a +1 ammo.

The drawback is that they have a -1 defense.

Re: Urgent Feature Request

I need to put a clock in plain view right next to the computer. I had yesterday off work and I was happy to have a large block of time to devote to the game. I started Storming Stalingrad. That night my wife and son got home and I was still in front of the computer. Lost all track of time. I had for...

Re: Optimal Use of Heroes

I like your idea about turning your spotting infantry into mountain or cavalry. You could do that and have some pretty good recon. I agree with Kerensky about the tac bombers and fighters. +3 defense always comes in handy. Sorry about spotting on the arty. Unfortunately, that is the waste of a good ...

Re: POOL / Motorized infantry combat

I will not cast a vote on this poll. I'm not entirely sure I understand the question. Here is my own view. Mounted units should not automatically dismount during the first attack. However, they should dismount immediately after the initial attack has been concluded. Thus be ready for any subsequent ...

Two of the tanks that I started 39 with have some fairly crappy heroes that I have made useful. Both have a movement hero and a spotting hero. Neither of those I find ideal for an armored unit. Funny enough, I have not needed a recon unit since mid '41. With a movement of 6 and a spot of 3 these two...

At the start of DCL 42 I have an 88 with +2 movement. That makes it very useful and adaptable.

My initial reaction is that it looks like a lot of thought went into your changes to the equipment file. I'll give that a closer read when I have more time.

Interesting core Deducter. I like your way of organizing. I notice at the end of 40 you still have a Panzer I in your core. I'm not one to upgrade to the latest and greatest the moment it becomes available, but even I dropped the Panzer I as quickly as I could. I'm having problems imagining what goo...

At the end of 41 (Field marshal) I look like this: 2 - Gebirgsjäger 2 - Pionier 1 - Brückenpioniere (Usually in reserve) 2 - Fallshirmjager 1 - SE Grenadier 1 - SE Gerbirgsjäger 1 - Wehrmacht (sees use occasionally) 1 - Panzer III 2 - Panzer IV 2 - SE Panzer III 2 - T-34/40 2 - KV-1's A & B (One of ...

I assume you are still in training missions. All of the main scenarios have city names. That should help you get your bearings. As for you other two questions - chill, just give it time. 5 hours is a relatively short time to learn any strategy game. It really is less numbers and math than it looks a...

I really enjoyed Pacific General and the mods that were made for it. It was my favorite of the three. I look forward to someday having some core naval action. Added thought: It is fine to play Germany and Russia without a naval component, but somehow all the other participants of the war just wouldn...

I'm pretty sure I can name them. I've got some little boys that are quite the "Bronies".

I like what comedian Ray Romano said about having three kids under the age of five in the house. He said it was like a frat house. No one ever sleeps, everything is broken, and there is puke everywhere.

If you are able to get decisive victories go ahead. Your actions in the DLC will not change the course of history.
