I am busy uploading Goldap to my youtube channel. Enjoy the broadcast’s.

I have 133 heroes heading into Berlin in my Field Marshall campaign, but I have a much smaller core (72 units).

I have 26 units with 5 stars and three heroes, which is not easy to do on Field Marshall. I am hoping to add one or two more during the Berlin battles.

That is outstanding my first time on Field Marshall I barely got to 100 heroes by the time I got to Berlin, but I lost a bunch of units along the way. :oops:

Definitely very impressive, I never counted them... :mrgreen:

It is too bad that there is no way to count this automatically and/or to see a nice in-game overview chart with all the heroes etc. I wonder if this being considered for PzC2?

Same with the casualties chart, i.e. it would be great to have the split between aux and core units as well as last scenario and overall campaign... I don't think this should be too hard to do, even PG already had the split between scenario and campaign 25 years ago... :D

I would be happy if I could just see the kill count for each of my units during the deployment phase.

Exactly, this is another thing, kill count and experience during deployment... plus the heroes somehow simple in the unit name... :|

Well, for the heroes in the name, you can just rename the unit.

Yeah, sure... that's what I do: A2, D3, etc... It would just be nice to see this information more easily/with less clicks...

Here is another thing.

If an enemy air unit is over an empty hex, you cannot shoot it with your AA without actually moving the AA unit into that hex, as far as I can tell (there may be a way of doing it but I have not found it).

Have you tried to select the AA and then press the Tab key to toggle between ground and air units and only then shoot at the enemy air unit?

Right click on deployed units, or
Select unit in 'Unit List' or 'Reserve List' window and command click on it, 'Unit Details' will come up.
I have a Mac keyboard, window keyboard may work slightly different.

Oh, OK.

That works.

Thanks.

Knowing that would have been really helpful in some situations.

Doing an ALT-click on the unit in the unit list works.

Thanks.

Sorry for that... :)

I usually play with the left hand on the keyboard all the time, some shortcuts are fairly helpful actually...
