Re: Very upset.

I think I may have found settings that are bringing me pretty close to how I was before 42. Up to now it seems to be playing nice, thanks to all of the suggestions and PM's I so kindly received. I suppose I am going to have to change it again when I get to the west campaigns. :? I really hope the de...

Re: Very upset.

Would the ruleset have effected my units ratings, would they be a higher rating if I had started with 1.14 rather than 1.20?
I don't know if to start again, or carry on with my present core under 1.14

Re: Very upset.

This is one of the feelings I got while playing 42. It was like the game was determined to play out history regardless of the player's actions.

Re: Very upset.

I won't pretend to understand most of what discussed here, I just play the game for enjoyment. So far I have tried many, many different difficulty configurations, but can't seem to find that magic level I was at before GC42. It looks to me like it's borderline. Adjusting one setting one notch can tu...

Re: Very upset.

So that would explain my 13 strength units going up against 15 strength units, yes?

Re: Very upset.

Up to this point the joy for me, was the planning, execution and adjustment of my moves. This doesn't seem to work in these new scenarios, try to carefully plan your moves and you will be headed for disaster. I think I have found a tactic that does work very well, the same tactic I used in Vitebsk. ...

Re: Very upset.

This is hilarious. I tried again on a much lower difficulty and, near first encounter, a 2 star soviet cavalry hit my 3 star T-34 for 7. I mean, I really don't have the words anymore. :roll: Was it is clear terrain? Yes, and my t-34's returned a 1. I might be in the minority here, but I would say t...

Re: Very upset.

So, changing the ruleset would give me an edge? If you go back to the 1.14 rules you get rid of the soft cap. You keep the new heroes and units you find though and you can customize the settings. It should let you get back to pretty much the same as they way you use to play. Now that sounds like a ...

Re: Very upset.

It's not just PC, an awful lot of games now being made, have no easy or true casual mode. The screams of those wanting competitive game play, complaining that it's too easy has driven the levels up to stupid. When I first started playing computer games many moons ago, people like to enjoy themselves...

Re: Very upset.

I am curious though, what difficulty are you playing at now? Maybe some tweaks to set a custom difficulty can take the sting out of some scenarios for you. I'm not the best of players myself, and I usually have to dial back the difficulty in the later years. The Soviets units that are racing across...

Re: Very upset.

Simples ThorHa, I had the game at the perfect difficulty, the sort difficulty that allowed me to really enjoy the game. All was fine and dandy up until GC42, then it was as if they changed the rules and flipped the difficulty on it's arse. The difficulty should stay something like constant throughou...

I mean don't run in circles in your room ranting about the devs, I guess you know history and know who did something similar with his general staff! :wink: How dare you talk to me in such a manner. Have you any idea who it is you are talking to? I will have you shot wivoutz ze blindfold, so help me...

Re: Very upset.

It was my most loved game, and now, is rapidly becoming my most hated game.
Why game developers have this urge to beat casual gamers down with a big stick, I'll never know. If I want to play it on ******* hard, I would have selected ******* hard.

Re: Very upset.

Sigh! The next scenario is much the same. The game now seems hell bent on smashing all of my core units that I have spent age's building up. If you can understand that when I set up the game for semi-casual play I think that it should stay that way. It was absolutely great up until GC42. Now I can't...

Re: Very upset.

Thanks Longasc. I couldn't bring myself to cheat, so I persevered with Vitebsk and finally completed it, with only one elite unit lost. There was a post that asked, what is your most hated map? Vitebsk, without a doubt. I have had to drop a difficulty level to compensate for the rapid increase in en...

Re: Very upset.

Just a thought. Is there a cheat to progress to the next map? Yes, there is: press Ctrl + Alt + Shift + C to enter the cheat mode, a small window should pop up. Enter 'endscn 0' (without the quotation marks) for a decisive victory, or 'endscn 1' for a marginal victory, if you want to finish with a ...

Re: Very upset.

I am playing full random on General for quite some weeks now, gone through all the dlc including 43 more than once. I had my fair share of RNG horrors and mircales, but I never experienced an unit wiped out in 1 or 2 attacks if at full strength, properly deployed and in the frontline backed by arti...
