Re: Prestige Soft Cap

Yeah I do agree. The soft cap itself isn't very bad and it serves its purpose just the player is completley left in the dark about that hidden difficulty which only impacts the late game but very profoundly. Any sort of indicator during the deployment phase and maybe a seperate slider on the difficu...

Re: Pz III M

It has really more to do about the way the AI chooses its target. Any tank/AT unit with less defense then 20 runs into trouble in the late GC because the AI will just attack those. The same goes for a good (+3) attack hero bonus to some extent, i.e less likely being attacked. And regarding overstren...

Re: Pz III M

Those units with the hero bonuses you mentioned are no longer Pz IIIM since they inherit completely different stats. A Panther with a high def. hero will always be better as a Tiger 1 in late game but without that hero bonus it will start takeing a lot of damage as soon as IS-2s show up.

Re: GC 45 West - Unplayable with Prestige Soft Cap?

I found GC 45 West fairly hard as well. With the new entrenchment rules it takes a long time to "dig" those heavily entrenched infantry and AT units out, especially with the not so favourite weather conditions. You also need a lot of infantry units in 45 West as well whereas the two previous campaig...

Re: Prestige Soft Cap

I started to really like the StuH42 due to its switch mode. The values aren't that great but with a decent attack hero they can really help finishing weak enemy units off.

Re: GC '44 East

It's true that SE units are pretty random. Just disband your infantry and wait until you'll get a tank allocated. In case I get an infantry I usually reload the campaign and continue playing until I have some more luck in the upcoming scenarios. There are so many good infantry units you get for free...

Yes. Berlin is def. the hardest scenario in 45 East and that was the one where I blew all the prestige I had (~3.2k) to overstrength most of my Tiger II's to 13-14.

Re: Prestige Soft Cap

These are my prestige numbers for 44/45 the last time I did the GC on Rommel: Start of 44 East including replacements ~22k Start of 45 East including replacements ~3.5k So this might give you some idea. 45 East is actually a lot easier then 44 so I just managed to overstrength most of my units to 11...

Re: Panzer Corp Difficulty

Well you say Oleh Dir is unbalanced but on the other hand you're rerolling hero stats? I don't think Oleh Dir is unbalanced but rerolled stats are, especially on tanks. You say Rommel is pretty easy as well. May I ask how far did you play on that difficulty with the new rules and the prestige soft c...

The only thing I find slightly annoying about this scenario is when the AI starts pumping out IS-1 like there is no tomorrow.

Re: Prestige Soft Cap

The soft cap does not encourage players to use cheaper units on a wide scale but prevent players from overstrengthing their units to 15. In in the late GC (mid 44 and 45) you really need to rely on the Tiger II as tanks because those heavy 10+ Soviet tanks with their massive experience are too tough...

Re: which infantry do you prefer (pre-1943)

Any hero with a movement bonus I usually turn into Grenadiers. In the late game these guys just cause absolute havoc to tanks in close defence hexes. I also make sure to have around 2 Pioneers. Oleh Dir is always my first option. This guy is just a one man army on steroids.

Using my fighters for some recreational strafing to knock one point of a randon unit, but seeing they will also then damage me, and then still press the fire button.

Re: Will this Unit Deployment Reap Max Prestige?

Maximum prestige in a given scenario usually involes a DV and makeing sure you units take as little damage as possible. I recently finished the grand campaign on Rommel and from my experience: - Upgrade your SE units to Tiger 1 and later Tiger II. SE units do not effect the soft cap and even Panther...

Re: Tiger v Panther v Mark IV

The Tiger has more armour then the Panther which really pays off from 44 onwards. I only upgrade tanks to Panther if they got a decent def. hero bonus.

Re: Specifi dlc 42 after Stalingrad question:

Yeah Tatinskaya is one of the real hard ones but probably my favourite too. Most of your units will take quite some damage, that is just unavoidable. I still found Stukas to be really useful in getting those pesky tanks down.

Re: Specifi dlc 42 after Stalingrad question:

I'd say breakout is by far easier and besides after Stalingrad docks I am usually tired of urban warfare. The breakout scenario has a lot of enemy planes so you need quite a bit of air defence otherwise the strafing fighters might eat up some of your prestige.

Re: Units I have learned to love

I really started to like StuGs either as AT or their artillery counterpart. The StuG III do last a long time and can later be transformed into StuG IV which are very decent artillery units. Whenever I get a range hero bonus on an artillery unit I turn them into a StuG IIIA, especially in scenarios l...

For some reasons I only just noticed today that the Jagdtiger(12,8-cm-PaK 44) only has a hard attack value of 21 in comparison to the Elefant and Jagdpanther (8,8-cm-PaK 43) which both have an HA value of 24.
