I certainly agree documentation needs to be better, and it should be for free, since this is just part of the mechanics of the game. Stuff like how adjacent units affect resupply/reinforcement, how being in a friendly city in bad weather gives full resupply, the mechanics of surrender and retreat, h...

Hmm, the German player does not seem too fond of Wurfrahmen, which is the ultimate soft unit killer. When I played against rusikcanuk, he used something like 6-7+ wurfrahmen against me once my armor was exhausted taking VH. He'd cover them with each other, making it impossible for soft units to dama...

Mission 5: Kampinsoka Forest While the forces under my command have dealt the Poles several losses, they are far from finished. Their forces are gathering outside of Warsaw, preparing to reinforce the city, and High Command has tasked me to destroy the Polish trains gathered in Kampinsoka Forest. I ...

Part of the issue with having experience be very powerful is that to balance it properly, the AI units must be given high experience to counterbalance your units in late scenarios. That makes it so that you can't afford to lose any of your 4-5 star units, and force you to restart. I personally think...

Mission 4: Piatek I requested an additional Bf109 and a standard pioneer from High Command. I deploy near each bridge with close terrain an infantry, a AT, and an ART unit. I do not actually attempt to hold most of these bridges. I also have a PzI and P(t)38 to help shore up defenses where needed. F...

Campaign 39, Manstein (SPOILERS)

For those of you who are not interested in spoilers for the new DLC, DO NOT READ. For everyone else, since there is some issues with modding with the new patch, plus with the release of the DLCs, I have stopped work on my project for now and decided to post a AAR of a new playthrough of the DLCs.

All anti-tank units of all nations have had a slight rule change. Instead of a -3 modifier on the offensive, this has been changed to a +3 modifier on the defensive. To clarify, this value refers to initiative, not the attack or defense values. The wording is not clear. This has very interesting im...

Looking for help with graphics

I was wondering if any modders out there can either let me use their custom works or create a something for something I'm working on: Horse-drawn transports for the Germans and the Soviets, for AA, AT, ART, etc. Just need to be 2 transport units, one for each side, but honestly i would not mind usin...

I can't say anything specific, but with the upcoming DLC content, you may find all the various panzers to be useful in specific roles, especially at higher difficulties. Don't forget that the PzIVD and the PzI, PzII all have the same defense values, but the PzI is a mere 100ish prestige. So there's ...

I can personally vouch that every scenario in 1939 and 1940 beta v2 DLC except Spoils of War is beatable on Manstein DV. I guess I am hoping for 1941 and beyond scenarios to have missions so hard that they are truly unbeatable on Manstein, like even MV would be really hard. Basically the Spoils of W...

I also agree it would be best to award SE units at specific times, or as awards for either DV or special objectives in a mission, like the captured units. People really liked the way captured units worked, as a bonus. At the very least, the option to do these things should be made available in an ed...

Well, it's just so many other things in the game is balanced that I must reiterate this point. I don't think the stats of the Wurfrahmen is overpowered, but in general, German units are better than any other equivalent, AND they are more expensive, as they should be. Why should this particular artil...

But the equivalent Soviet 20 SA rocket launcher is 500ish prestige. It may have 8 move, but it's wheeled, which unless it is on a road will move slower than a 6 track unit. How do you justify such a large difference in prestige like that, especially since the 30% cheaper unit is superior in movement?

I've always wonder whether you should actually balance T34s to be cheaper as time goes on, as was historically true. A T34 would be more prestigious to get in 41 than in 44, if you think about it. The Soviets really focused on getting their main battle tank to be as cheap as possible. I understand f...

Campaign 39 and especially 40 are very good, although personally I wished for some of the missions to be just a tad harder, but they are still awesome.

I am, however, looking the most forward to fighting the endless Red hordes. Nothing like 15+ str KV tanks vs PzIIIs to make things interesting.

As the British, I've never failed to get 5 VH on turn 2, and almost always can get to 6 by turn 3. Then I see where the German player is attacking, and what units he gets, and I place delaying units along his main axis of advance and try to attack through an alternate path. I tend to get infantry an...

Heh, I haven't had too much of an opportunity to exploit the initiative cap of close terrain, but I have thought about that, and it does seem it clearly has a big effect. This is not that surprising, however. Any Sherman will likely get crushed in the open by a Panther, but in France, many Shermans ...
