Re: Overstrength.

In general I agree with dalfrede; "So limit overstrength to low cost units [infantry], and to units that suffer low loses [artillery, Rudel]." I would add that; remember SE units DO NOT count towards the softcap but the ordinary units are calculated in the softcap at thier overserstrength value not ...

Re: At what time should you be content with your (infantry) unit(s) heroes?

I dont really think there is a specific time with infantry as later on you get a couple of nicely heroed infantry gifts which even with thier first hero on top of thier base free heroes are quite good. I would keep the plus two defence pioneer as defence is pioneers weak point so eliminating that we...

Re: Your country needs you! Join the Beta for Panzer Corps 2!!!

I applied for the beta, recieved an acknowledgement message but have now found that I am not likely to have the time in the near future. How do I withdraw?. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Panzer Corps Wehrmacht Youtube claims the game of slitherine.com is inappropriate !!!

I am sure eventually it will make sense for slitherine to host AAR videos themselves. ( e.g. give it a few years -not many at all at the current rate !- when you can only access youtube (or alternatives) by signing in with the goverment mandated barcode tattoed on your rear :-) , I will not be using...

Re: Best feature from the twitch stream?

Strangely enough i still have on my win 7 laptop a working 1996 game (M.A.X.) which has the 'similtaneous' option. I think around the time a number of turn based games tried it but everyone unchecked it off, it was a gimmick which did not last.

Re: Question for mod scenario designers

That was interesting. The reason I asked that question was; having looked at the available video of Pzc2 available I am pleasantly surprised at the visual quality (," surprised albeit from very low expectations!, as I thought it would be awful as per historical turn based) so IFF when it is delivere...

Question for mod scenario designers

So when PZc2 comes out will you be converting any of your old but excellent mod scenarios to the new visual/graphic style in pz2? but keeping the basic scenario the same?
OR
Would you only do new mod scenarios.
(McGuba ? :-)

Thanks.

Re: Eastern Front: Soviet Storm v1.96b

uzbeck: yes, its ok, nowhere near as good as PZ. the AI is pretty dumb/easily foolable and the graphics are not as good. There are only about 25 maps in total and fewer units so much simpler/lighter.

Hi McGuba I just did Bfe v1.9 for the first time. (on medium level). comments; like every version it seemed harder than the previous :-) Felt i was always short of decent artilliary all the way through like the whole class had been significantly downgraded. All the new uboats and other naval produce...

Re: Pz3's versus Pz4's thoughts

I find that my choice is determined by the fact that p3's are available as SE long before p4's hence my strategy has grown around having p3's immediately rather than p4's and of course you want se tanks as soon as possible to farm and hero, you cant afford to waste that time before p4's become usabl...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Christmas special! Dev Diary #7

I believe that most serious players will play with the hexes on (feel free to prove me wrong, in fact how about a small poll with two choices to check) in order to get the most accuracy and maximum amount of info for the least eyeball time. Therefore screenshots without the hexes will not be as repr...

I would have to agree with kerensky about removing the dots (next to the thick black line) in the picture, it definately looks better without.

Hi Rudankort. The AAR thread and REPLAY is here, spoils of war is about halfway down. http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=145&t=81741 Astonishingly it plays exactly like a game of chess on a board with the recon as a standard (chess) tactical sacrifice to take and control the centre.

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

On the subject of armoured cars; in the GC DLC's there are two scenarios where if you deliberately sacrifice a cheap armoured car you can quickly dominate and do the scenarios VERY easily AND quickly. Spoils of war if you sacrifice one you get control of the middle of the board and the rest very che...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

Actually its the ratio of units to map size. Hence the really big maps e.g. BFe although they have alot of units, in comparison to the map size are relatively low giving lots of room for creative thinking/alternate sloutions. Wheras the later DLC's are not as popular (as determined by the number of ...
