Modlin All I have to say is, having four artillery around Modlin, of strength 18, 17, 15, and 13 will result in losses. I restarted this scenario in an attempt to get DV, yet I still failed on my second, much more successful try. My first attempt would’ve easily net me MV, but I launched a piecemeal...

beta2, campaign 39, manstein

Poznan Turn 2, I stumbled a Bf109 onto a Polish fighter in the middle airfield. The AA gun there doesn’t attack my plane. Wojciech’s tankette was destroyed by artillery, recon to force it to move into a forest, then infantry. That’s tactics. Many Polish units are inactive, which I like, since it sim...

I thought Spoils of War, especially if the AI were better, was a fun map, historical or not. I guess I just like the Red Army vs Wehrmacht battles the most. If there's another beta I will play through on Manstein, which I very well may end up with a string of MVs unless I decide to be very aggressiv...

I've gotten a moscow 41 decisive on FM, but I had extraordinary good luck, only 1 turn of muddy terrain, the rest clear. When I played through on Rommel I got like 8 turns of muddy terrain, so yeah, not even close. Personally I think Rommel is the easiest of the bonus difficulties. To bring it up to...

Reims -I lost a PzIV crossing the Aisne River, to a strong French counterattack from the east. After that, I positioned my units very well, and with consummate skill completely crushed the French attack force with minimal strength losses. Truly a callback to my brilliance at Calais. Otherwise the sc...

Calais -Again the British strength and units and counterattacks are good, and this will surely sound like boasting, but through skillful maneuvers and a bit of luck I’ve on several occasions extricated my heavily damaged frontline units, put my forces in a nice defensive formation, then crushed the ...

Campaign 40, Rommel

Ebon-Emael -Very fun map at the start, the 0 ammo fortresses that you have to deal with, plus the special deployment and the potential to place a fallschirmjager plane overhead the fortresses. Good positioning of your units can further limit potential resupply for expert players. Otherwise quite an ...

Heh, it's interesting to see we actually have a lot of thoughts in common, from the general one of buffing the difficulty (especially the Norway ones, and historically Norway resisted for like 3 months, while France only 6 weeks) to specific ones like adding more 0 ammo planes to Poznan! I especiall...

Modlin -Were there really two of the fortress structures (the ones that fire artillery)? Because I only remember one for some reason. Regardless, pretty straightforward scenario. I think the AI bought 3 tankettes and put them south of Modlin, across the rivers. Those proved completely useless. Shoul...

Rommel difficulty, campaign 39

Overall Thoughts: -Playing on Rommel difficulty. -Judging by the reports from other beta testers, I am probably in the minority who thinks that the scenarios are a bit too easy and there is too much prestige. Since this is Poland, I have no problem with things being easy, even on Rommel Difficulty. ...

For the record, I actually did use the "assault" mode of the StuGIV recently to pick off a 1str SU-100 in a MP game. Sure it got destroyed on the counterattack, but this was great fun. So I'm just saying, a more viable "assault" mode would be pretty awesome.

Several other content packs huh? What I would love are more Ostfront battles. Like, I don't know, at least 30 scenarios there... And being outnumbered consistently... I guess the question is, are these scenarios meant to be harder than the standard grand campaign, without having to use the bonus dif...

Don't know anything about the Marders, but I was just thinking about the German assault guns! Historically they were the most numerous vehicles, and really very good at their jobs. I think they killed the most Russian tanks out of all the German units. I did notice that the current StuH42 and the St...

I'm not sure that heavy tanks really have as low close defense as you guys seem to think. My Tiger II that stumbled into a swamp got wiped out by two SU-100s, which did about 5 damage, and two infantry (one might even have been a conscript) that did the remaining 5. I do agree something to make PzIV...

I did not know that units in city tiles receive full supply in bad weather... That is extremely useful information, and now I remember why you put out of ammo units in your cities. The manual should have an appendix with these little tidbits.

Frozen North (with Kerensky)

Frozen North AAR (with Kerensky) Fun game, I played Germans and he played Soviets. I’ll report in the form of a list of bullet points of the battle/observations/commentary. -I temporarily possessed 4 VH but was soon cut down to 3.

Very nice campaign, FM is pretty fun, it's not too hard once you get the hang of it. But just wait until you get to the bonus difficulties... Manstein will test you.

Stalingrad The initial soviet armor resistance was easily brushed aside with my stukas. The Soviet KV tanks were harder to deal with, but round the clock bombardment from artillery and a combination of stukas and strategic bombers eventually wore them down. I was not keen to attack until they were w...
