I just love tapping units hard with an 88 after I suppress them...so fun to hear that sound effect.
There really is not enough said about the great sound effects that were put in this game. Just love hearing that BOOM!
My favorite are the bridge engineers and the weird ratcheting noise that happens after firing.
Anyone know what that is? Possibly bolt action but them being the only ones that emit it doesn't make sense.
A close second are the dive-bombers with 20mm cannons, Ju-87G and Hs-129.
Interesting, I had not taken notice to this before and seeing as I have a auxiliary Bridge Engineer in Smolensk I will have to give it a listen.
With that said no time today to go into much detail about my progress as since I was out sick Friday and am now playing catch up at work:
I busted through a lot more of my Super Hard Campaign.
In fact I have played through, Metaxas Line, Crete Naval, Crete Airborne, Minsk, and have started Smolensk but am considering restarting as had Oleh Dir hit by T-34/40 damaged for 6...which makes me consider restarting my initial set up and initial strategy. Maybe.
Here are quick thoughts on my playthroughs:
Metaxas Line, the difficulty level for this scenario really jumps up in comparison to Belgrade, which is easy at any level.
I took some real damage, but powered through for Decisive and secured Matilda 2 thanks to some softening up with planes and the work of Oleh Dir.
Crete Naval: I think you will be interested in watching the playthrough on that posted replay...thanks Hurly...as I did a different strategy on that one that was more time consuming but less damaging to my units than others I have seen played.
Crete Airborne: I was sick and tired and simply powered through this terrible playthrough, do not follow this set up or playthrough for how to do this mission as I lost 2 units and other units were chewed up something awful. I still got the Decisive, but I kept the Naval mission for the continuation of this playthrough for obvious reasons.
Minsk41: Super Easy start take it slow around pain points like Brest-Litovsk, the one in the center guarded by arty, and AA, I am forgetting the name, and Minsk itself which is tough. You need to get lucky with your aux Dornier's knocking out those guarded airfields, but once their planes are immobile it is smooth sailing in the skies.
Smolensk: I forgot how tough it is to cross the Berezina initially, and as such am considering restarting, but probably not...
I will try to get aar's typed up...the only thing I am considering that you could provide feedback on is the following:
Heinz Rondorf? Should I upgrade to Flam or Pz4? I have really enjoyed him as Flamm in both Manstein and Guderian playthroughs, but not sure this time around.
Captured tanks: I used to build up as many tanks as I could trying to hero farm for best heroes on my tanks, but unsure if this is wise to do this playthrough as so very difficult to build up experience on tanks...Should I just sell them, or build up very select few, if select few, which?
Thanks again for the interest and feedback...hopefully will be able to do youtube thingy by the end of the year...maybe?
